Episode 06 - Turbo: A Power Rangers / Power Rangers Turbo


If Nathan was a Power Ranger monster-of-the-week, his name would be “Rant Master.” Michael gets earfuls of it this week when they discuss the infamous double whammy of Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie and Power Rangers Turbo. Michael tries to counter Nathan…by raving about Divatox’s corset. They hit all the usual topics with this low point of the franchise—Justin (aka “Power Kenny”), the laughable villains, Bulk and Skull as monkeys—and have a discussion about identity crisis as a meta-textual theme for Turbo since Power Rangers had forgotten who it was and lost its way. The silver lining? This season broke its leg so the next one could put it in a splint and run so hard, it broke the braces.
