In our 16th commentary counting down to the 25 years of Power Rangers, we look at “Once a Ranger,” a 2 part special that celebrated the 15th Anniversary during Power Rangers: Operation Overdrive. The son of Lord Zedd and Rita Repulsa has united all of the Operation Overdrive villians, and with their help, has severed the Rangers’ connection to the Morphin Grid. Will even the return of 5 veteran Rangers be enough to save the day? Do I even have to ask?

It had to happen eventually. We have reached the end of the 80s. In this episode, we finish things off with the introduction of a new network, and by witnessing the debut of such shows as Perfect Strangers, Married…with Children, The Wonder Years, and Full House. Join me for one last jaunt down memory lane…until the 90s that is. Bwahahaha!
