Episode 19: Power Rangers (Super) Samurai | Ft. Billy and Jimmy Wilson of Zeo 2 Hero


To kick off the Neo-Saban and Hasbro Eras, Michael and Nathan bring on Jimmy and Billy of the Zeo 2 Hero podcast—which leads to some sibling squabbles between the guests! Why? Because Billy requested to guest host for Power Rangers Samurai. This series infamously adapted its Sentai counterpart, Shinkenger, exactly, going so far as to have a Caucasian red ranger with a Japanese last name. Then they set it in the most western-looking “Japanese” city ever. Talk about awkward! Nathan loses his mind over how awful the premiere is—even going so far as to issue an apology to the Turbo movie! When Rantmaster apologizes, you know it’s bad. But is it the worst they’ve seen? Listen to find out!
