When you press his TURBO button, Judge David Johnson barks like a Dachshund.
Our review of Power Rangers Turbo: Volume One, published April 28th, 2014, is also available.
Picking up where we left off a few months ago, it's time for the second and final batch of Power Rangers Turbo, the Power Rangers series that hit the airwaves following the Rangers' second feature film.
The skinny: the Turbo Rangers deploy in their turbocharged Zord apparatus when the lethal female space pirate Divatox hits town. The usual assortment of stiffs run around in the spandex and they of their flipping and somersaulting and kicking and blaster firing and then when one of Divatox's butt-ugly monsters elongates, it's Zord-time. You know, like every other Power Rangers show.
So what separates Power Rangers Turbo from its peers? Not a whole lot and what is there as a differentiator is lame. As I previously lamented, the main character in the show appears to be the Blue Ranger, played by an irritating kid. See, when the little snot fires up his Turbo trinket he magically grows into an adult male and gets his fight on. Which is fine in the context of the Japanese chopsocky that makes up the fantasy violence of the show, but during the filler that precedes it, new levels of corniness present themselves. In related news, we're still stuck with the awful new Alpha robot with the moronic Brooklyn accent and the oddball belly dancer woman who replaced Zordon.
In sum: this is pretty much the worst Power Rangers series ever made.
The DVDs: Grainy 1.33:1 full frame, Dolby 2.0 Stereo, and no extras.
Guilty. Go Morph yourself.
