Episode 09: Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue


Nathan and Michael get to the neglected middle child of the post-Zordon Saban Era: Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue. It’s underrated and underappreciated because it’s sandwiched between two popular and excellent seasons. While it has its faults—it tries and fails to recapture the magic of “Green with Evil,” it crams in too many plotlines, and the villainous Vypra is prettier than she is talented—it also has some good characters, an original Ranger, and a solid finale. Your hosts discuss how service and heroism permeate the season in The Power Trip’s trademark theme section—after joking about a reality TV spinoff of LSR revolving around the demons. What else did you expect?
