Anyways, the most recent episode of Power Rangers that I watched was Once a Ranger, a two-parter in Operation Overdrive. And ohmygoodness. I forgot how awesome that episode is. I freely admit that Overdrive isn't one of my favorite teams, but I still like them. But when they brought back previous rangers, one in particular, I decided that I kind of love whoever wrote the season.
So what is the episode about? Essentially, Thrax, the son of Lord Zedd and Rita Repulsa (yes, you read that correctly), comes to Earth in order to help the villains there destroy the rangers and obtain the jewels of the Corona. He uses all of the evil energy present to destroy the connection the Overdrive rangers have with the morphing grid. So the Sentinel Knight (I may not have spelled that right but I'm going to assume you know who that is) uses his powers to bring back 5 previous rangers to form a team to replace the now powerless rangers. Of course, the rangers get their powers back and everyone fights together and Thrax is destroyed and all that. We all knew that was going to happen. But I need to share with you HOW that happens.
Eh hem. So, the replacement ranger team? Xander, Green Mystic Ranger. Bridge, S.P.D. Red Ranger (it's confusing, he explains it though). Kira, Dino Thunder Yellow Ranger. Tori, Blue Wind Ninja Ranger. And finally, the best of them all (and yes, I'm biased since he has always been one of my favorite rangers) Adam, Mighty Morphin Black Ranger! Yes, I am serious. Yes, it is amazing. Yes, you absolutely should drop what you're doing right now and go watch that double-episode full of amazingness.
Oh, and it gets even better. So Andrew Hartford gets Adam to help him try to figure out how to re-establish the Overdrive ranger's connection to the morphing grid. Adam, as he says, doesn't have enough knowledge of the morphing grid to fix it himself. But he says he knows who does. Now, at first I thought he meant Billy. I mean, he's Billy. And he's a genius. And he's Billy. Unfortunately, it wasn't Billy, but it was a close second. Adam brought in Alpha-6! Yay! Hooray for Alpha! I missed the little robot.
Anyways, that's all I wanted to share with you. Remember, I will be attempting to complete another villain page by the end of this weekend (yay!), so be sure to check back Saturday night. Now, I will leave you with a couple of screenshots from the amazing episode I just watched. :)
