Things You Missed: Power Rangers comes to an end


This probably slipped past many people’s radar as the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers series ended its long run with episode 700.

Last weekend after 700 episodes and 17 seasons, the long-running Power Ranger series came to an end. The karate-miming, putty-patroller-beating group reached massive highs with toy sales and ratings in childrens’ television, and also terrible lows with the tragic and dark crime that involved a past child star.

I never got into the series myself, as giant transforming robots seemed to have already been played out.  What did make sense about the initial American series was Amy Jo Johnson.
