what-happened-to-the-cast-of-mighty-morphin-power-rangers-876016It’s a dark and stormy night at Angel Grove High School, and Adam is staying late to study while Tanya is asleep and Bulk and Skull are on night patrol. When Tanya gets up to leave, Bulk and Skull warn her that it’s a full moon tonight and that unusual things can happen under it, but Tanya just laughs and agrees to walk them home. As he studies, Adam is distracted by the television as it begins playing a favorite old monster movie of his, The Bride of Hackensack, and he ends up falling asleep on the sofa.vlcsnap-4951117Later, Adam is rudely woken up when a black cat runs into the room. Adam chases it, only to run into Rita Repulsa and Lord Zedd as they stand in the darkened hallway of the high school. They tell him that while he slept, the Machine Empire took over the planet and brainwashed his friends. Adam’s only hope is to follow the cat as it leads him to a powerful sorcerer, and he must also collect the cape of a vampire, the hair of a werewolf, the wrappings of a mummy, and the eye of a cat in order to earn the sorcerer’s trust and turn back the Machines. As Adam steps through a door, he finds himself in a black-and-white world and meets a vampire named Tomacula as a familiar-looking bartender serves drinks to him and his friends… except Tomacula wants something a little more fresh from Adam’s veins. King Mondo suddenly appears to taunt Adam and send down Cogs, and Adam grabs Tomacula’s cape while he’s distracted.Vulgar-2000-movie-Bryan-Johnson-3A voice suddenly calls out as a rope appears. Adam climbs it and appears in a forest where he meets Lord Henry. He and the villagers are on watch for a werewolf in the area, but Adam finds out that Henry himself is the werewolf. When Henry falls into the bushes, Adam grabs some of his caught hair and flees. After meeting with the local Burgermeister, Adam is directed to a nearby cave where a professor is researching the tomb of Prince Bulkenhotep. The mummified prince wakes up and chases them until Adam helps him unwind by pulling his wrappings off. Adam leaves the cave and arrives inside a strange laboratory, where Dr. William von Hackensack and his assistant Eye-Gor are at work creating a zombie bride. Suddenly, the cat reappears and transforms into Valencia, queen of the witches. She demands that Adam submits to her power, but he takes her cat’s-eye pendant and she melts away.hqdefaultThe four items gathered, Adam finally reaches the wizard Zordonicus, who forces him to choose one of his friends to fight the evil Drill Master. When Adam asks himself what Tommy would do in his situation, Zordonicus accepts it as Adam’s answer and sends Tommy into the battle. Tommy struggles against Drill Master, but he ultimately triumphs over the monster. Adam demands that Zordonicus revert the world to normal, but the sorcerer reveals himself to be King Mondo and sends monsters to destroy him. Adam is suddenly jostled awake by Tommy, Kat, Tanya, and Rocky. As it turns out, Adam had slept through the whole night and suffered through one big nightmare. While Bulk and Skull pass through chasing what looks like the cat from his dream, Adam sees a TV commercial for an encore showing of The Bride of Hackensack. The other Rangers plan to watch it later, but Adam decides to pass on the offer as he’s had enough of scary movies.bxhNrwGiTlvy2rmH7S3zpGO9N8OAn excellent episode one of the best Halloween specials and indeed one of the best episodes ever.

As the teens enjoy Halloween with some of their young friends, Lord Zedd instructs the putties to crash the annual Youth Center Halloween Party by disguising themselves as kids. Then, as Tommy takes the disguised putties trick-or-treating, Goldar kidnaps him to a secret location to battle the most vicious Halloween monsters.power-rangers-zedd-monster-mash-1041339
A Simple Halloween episode but a fun one, Tommy vs Monsters of the past, also the first mention of the peace conference, so it makes the episode important.

vlcsnap-4951117Kimberly boasts to Trini and Tommy that she is going to be competing on Trick or Treat, the most popular game show in the country, and possibly win a new car. Unfortunately, her opponent just happens to be Skull, whom Bulk claims is going to be unbeatable. Up in the Moon Palace, Rita Repulsa has received word that her new monster Pumpkin Rapper has been planted and is ready to grow. As Trick or Treat begins, the host explains the rules. Each contestant asks him a trick question, and stumping him earns a Pumpkin Point. The one with the most points at the end wins. While the other Rangers are cheering for Kimberly, Tommy (who couldn’t go to the show due to having previously signed up for a karate tournament) stumbles onto a pumpkin patch full of rotten pumpkins in the park. Rita panics and has Putties sent down to deter Tommy from finding her monster, but he fights them off and informs Zordon of the attack before heading for the tournament.
pumpkinrappermmpr03Kimberly quickly takes an impressive lead on Pumpkin Points, while Bulk helps Skull cheat by giving him hints from the audience. Just when she is one point away from winning, however, the other Rangers gesture to Kimberly that Zordon is calling and she is forced to fake a fainting spell in order to be taken off the set, making Skull the winner by default. Once they arrive at the Command Center, Zordon fills them in on the situation. After morphing, the Rangers arrive in the park and investigate the pumpkins. They suddenly latch onto their heads in an attempt to suffocate the Rangers, but Kimberly avoids getting caught and uses her Blade Blaster to free them.hqdefaultThe pumpkins suddenly rise up and turn into pumpkin-headed Putties, and Pumpkin Rapper awakens to challenge the Rangers with both his electrified vines and his horrible rap-lyrics. Zordon is forced to summon Tommy into battle, costing him his spot in the tournament but saving the Rangers in time. With Tommy holding him down, the Rangers squash Pumpkin Rapper with the Power Blaster. Kimberly and Tommy shrug over being forced to lose their respective contests, but console themselves in knowing that they’re both winners. Bulk and Skull soon arrive to show off their new car, but their ride comes to an end when a representative of Network Standards and Practices declares Skull’s win as forfeit due to his and Bulk’s cheating and takes back the car.vlcsnap-2014-11-06-18h59m06s99The second Halloween episode is one of my all favorites, making a Kimberly episode was just brilliant and I really liked the Pumpkin Rapper monster. The game show part was funny too.

Tumblr_mbay6qV8LB1qiaw85o1_1280The gang is helping to decorate the Youth Center for the Halloween costume party. Bulk and Skull end up having to help, Zack goes after Angela again, and Tommy helps Kimberly paint. Bulk and Skull’s antics once again end with Bulk getting hit with a bucket of paint. Rita Repulsa goes ahead with her plan to mine Super Putty, but needs to distract the Rangers. Finster creates a Frankenstein Monster. It’s sent to Angel Grove.Vulgar-2000-movie-Bryan-Johnson-3The five main Rangers convene at Billy’s house, all wearing costumes. Tommy is still finishing his costume and plans on catching up with them. Bulk and Skull try on costumes in hope of finding ones that will win the the big prize at the party, but just end up going in their usual punk outfits. Alpha shows up at the party because he wanted to party and hang out with the Rangers, and this costume bash would be the perfect opportunity (Alpha is soon surrounded by fawning girls, to Zack’s consternation). Frankenstein Monster crashes as well, but no one seems to notice, not even Alpha and his new fan club.vlcsnap-2014-11-06-18h59m06s99Finster heads the mining of the Super Putty at some cave. Frankenstein Monster gets violent after its foiled attempt to catch the Rangers. It chases Bulk and Skull outside of the Youth Center. Billy follows the monster to the cave. He morphs and battles the beast with little success. He regroups with the others at the costume party as Rita erupts from the surface of Angel Grove on top of a giant ball of Super Putty. At the Command Center, Zordon fills the five in on Rita’s plans. Tommy is ambushed by Putties outside the Youth Center. The other five morph and go to confront Frankenstein Monster. It’s very powerful and the Rangers are barely holding out when Rita makes Frankenstein Monster grow.
vlcsnap-2014-11-08-17h17m09s105Megazord duels with the monster and Tommy is finally able to morph and join his friends. Neither Dragonzord or Megazord have luck with fighting the creature so Dragonzord Battle Mode is formed. With the The Power Staff, the Rangers finally kill Frankenstein Monster after he initially manhandles the Dragonzord Battle Mode.Back at the Juice Bar, the Rangers celebrate their victory over Rita once again. Tommy runs off to change into his costume. Kim tells Alpha that he is a hit at the party, calling him by name in front of his new fawning fan club. Bulk and Skull show up to pick on the young robot, calling him a tin can. Tommy shows up in his Frankenstein Monster costume at the party. Ernie declares the winner of the costume contest to be… Alpha! Bulk tells Skull to grab a can opener, as he wants to learn what Alpha really is. Alpha states that his identity is one mystery that will have to remain unsolved, and he walks off with his newfound fan club.vlcsnap-4951117An excellent first attempt for an Halloween episode, choosing Frankenstein as the monster was brilliant.

REVIEW: Power Playback: Funniest Power Rangers Moments

 

CAST

Johnny Yong Bosch (Blade Anime)
Paul Schrier (Wicked Game)
Jason Narvy (Masked Rider)
Jack Banning (Top Dog)

Johnny Yong Bosch hosts a 30 minute look back on classic clips from 6 seasons of Power Rangers. At least, that’s what he’s SUPPOSED to do. Instead, a computerized talking van called P.A.L.S. (Production Automated Location Studio) takes over the show, with two very familiar troublemaker voices. Johnny plays it straight, trying to bring order to chaos, as insane clips from various episodes, video specials, and Sentai scenes are thrown his way. Professor Phenomenus also shows up a few times. Eventually, it’s revealed that Bulk & Skull are behind P.A.L.S., and have been purposely ruining the show. A gang of angry rogue monsters end up chasing the bumbling duo across the Saban Studios lot.

Now this maybe a clipshow, but it has a few gems such as the Zyuranger Bandora song, and clips from Kakuranger. showing the Japanese sentai along with Power Ranger clips was genius. giving fans a little look at Sentai. It was nice to Johnny Yong Bosch back hosting this special, he also gues starred on Power Rangers in Space around this time.

REVIEW: The Good, the Bad, and the Stupid: The Misadventures of Bulk And Skull

CAST

Paul Schrier (Wicked Game)
Jason Narvy (Masked Rider)
Gregg Bullock (Evil Acts)

After being trapped in a cave during a spelunking adventure, Bulk and Skull while trying to find a way out, recall the various situations they’ve ended up in. At the end, Stone appears, also dressed in a cave explorer’s outfit, wondering where they have been.

This was intended to test the market to see if a Bulk & Skull series would sell, although Jason Narvy and Paul Schrier are excellent, it is basically a clip show. Bulk and Skull will always be classic characters, but it is there interaction with the rangers that make them popular. The special is still fun and good to have for any power rangers fan. It’s included on the MMPR complete box set.
