All Rise...

Judge David Johnson made a Christmas wish and then this DVD showed up and he stopped believing in Christmas.

The Charge

"Don't you dare even mention Santa's name!"

The Case

Power Rangers Super Samurai: A Christmas Wish features three episodes celebrating the magic of Christmas the only way the Power Rangers know how: lamenting the emotional fallout of divorce!

• "A Christmas Wish"
The Power Rangers ring in the yuletide season the only way they know how: by beating the living hell out of a giant monster. Once they vanquish their foe, they kick back in the cockpit of their Megazord and bask in their awesomeness. Unfortunately, the Zord malfunctions and they're stuck. Worse? They're going to miss a Christmas party back at headquarters.

To pass the time, they begin reminiscing about past adventures and Holy crap, this a clip show?!

• "Alpha's Magical Christmas" Thirty minutes of that Alpha robot from the original series leading a chorus of kids in Christmas caroling.

I have no clue.

• "Forever Friends"
In this episode, Kimberly befriends a girl with a cold demeanor and discovers that she's still dealing with the repercussions of her parents' divorce. Then, later, monsters!

Power Rangers Super Samurai: A Christmas Wish might be the most useless DVD I've reviewed this year. I've got nothing against the Power Rangers. What I am not a huge fan of is anthology releases that half-ass the episode selection. I mean, what says "Christmas spirit" more like a clip show, a nightmarish sing-along led by a robo,t and a sober discussion on the emotional scarring of divorce?

Happy Holidays!

The Verdict

Humbug.
