Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Death of Our Childhood
Back in 1993, a TV show known as Mighty Morphin Power Rangers premiered on Fox Kids. Little did anyone expect that it would explode into one of the biggest TV phenomenons of the 20th century. Now 17 years, 15 series and a metric ass-ton of merchandising later, the current holders of the Power Rangers rights, Disney/ABC, are airing the original series, newly “remastered” with visual and sound effects on ABC Kids.
Like most of my peers, I loved the show as a kid, and all I can say about this new “revision” is…
WHAT THE FUCK!?
I mean, I’m all for remastering things that need to remastered, but what’s up with the comic-book-inspired graphics and such!? The original was just fine without them!
