I remember the first season of “Power Rangers” like it was yesterday. It was new. It was straightforward. And they could destroy the city every day, and it would be new again the next day. They fought Putty Patrollers, Goldar, Lord Zedd, and that cackling queen Rita Repulsa. Every new episode was a glorious new adventure, and I would sit with bowl of Frosted Flakes (or Coco Puffs) and watch with bated breath to see how each episode would end.
But then eventually I grew up, and the Power Rangers went wild. They had dinosaurs in one season, samurais in another, and even had magic powers at one point. It was too much, even for Power Rangers. Still…there was a small part of me that always wondered, what happened to my favorite five Rangers — six if you count Tommy, and seven if you count Rocky.
Lucky for me my question was recently answered. James Van Der Beek and Katee Sackhoff star in Joseph Kahn’s (Detention, Toque) R-rated, NSFW Power Rangers short film.
Watch the film below, and mind you…this is the “safe” version.
