BB Reviews: Power Rangers Super Samurai- A Christmas Wish




HolaHolaHola My Beautifuls!


You know the old saying, "Everything old is new again."? Quee?? JU SO FONII!!! No, I'm not talking about Babushka, although this DVD truly did bring back memories of a younger time.  BB was in the group of mothers who stood hours in line for the first set of Power Rangers toys in the US. Yes, my son is that old. Pero you know what?  Lady Karma is Bella, because now it's MAC's turn to stand for hours waiting for his child's toy. Except for this one- this one Babushka's happy to share with him.




BB's aware there have been many incarnations of the Power Rangers, so the cover wasn't that much of a surprise.  However the theme song...

as you can hear, they've kept it pretty much the same.  

Matter of fact, the whole premise hasn't changed too much since Babushka my son watched it.




The Power Rangers are still teenagers protecting the Earth from Aliens.  The costumes are brighter, the graphics better, and the giant monsters don't look so Lego-ish, but the fun and cheesy dialogue with pantomine overacting still crack me up and still entrance their tiny fans.  Oh yes, they still have the two Power Ranger wannabe bunglers, though now they're fans.  The Episodes:


1. Super Samurai Stuck On Christmas 

"The Samurai Rangers are stuck in Megazord's cockpit when it breaks down after battling a Nighlok on Christmas Eve.  By using their smarts, determination and teamwork, will the Rangers make it out in time to celebrate Christmas?"

This was a good reintroduction for BB. 
Via flashbacks of the characters, those of us who hadn't seen them for awhile will be pleased and the little ones will love the action that starts right from the start.


2. Alpha's Magical Christmas

No real action scenes, just a sentimental, silly smattering of Christmas Scenes and carols- perfect for us old sentimental and silly folks who like that kind of stuff and the original Power Rangers. Billy (Blue Ranger), Kimberly (Pink Ranger) and Tommy (Green Ranger) help Alpha celebrate Christmas. 


3. Forever Friends







With the emphasis on Girl Power and winning Groaner dialogue like this one, how can you not love Power Rangers?


Jaws of Destruction: Rangers! Ready to be polished off?
Rocky: No way! It's you who's in for a good shalacking!




; )





So what's Babushka's final say on this DVD?



GO GO POWER RANGERS!!!




Thanks to you, lots of good memories will be remembered and made.
