I grew out of wrestling after the attitude era but as I channel surfed one lazy day I found a wrestling show that got my attention, this was no modern WWE, it was Wrestling Society X.
Known as an absolutely terrible wrestling promotion that only lasted ten episodes but I saw something else, a show that brought wrestling back in a fun way for me to enjoy. So does that mean Wrestling Society X is secretly good?

As a kid I was always interested in all those fan clubs that were promoted whether on the action figures that I bought or even on my Kids Meal when I went to Burger King. I must’ve been too young to understand how they worked though since I don’t recall ever knowing how they worked.
Little did I know that the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers had a fan club and not only did it include all kinds of neat memorabilia but also a VHS tape that had exclusive content! As soon as I found that out I knew I had to find it to see what this “lost” Power Rangers footage included.

Last week we finished the last season of Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers which is a direct lead to Power Rangers Zeo. As you know Saban decided to change the format of Power Rangers with the fourth season and decided to follow the yearly sentai theme more closely and not only changing villains and mecha but also the suits. So let’s take a look at everything that the last season built up and if it delivered.
Before Zeo even began they aired some shorts leading up to the premier which is called “the Zeo Serial” which all the short together make another “episode” and it’s cool; This never aired where I lived but it would’ve gotten me super excited in fact as a kid I probably thought Power Rangers was cancelled as it got taken off the air after Season 3. I did find out about the other seasons not long after and even got to see a little of Zeo and Power Rangers Turbo but for the most part the franchise was dead in my area. Dragon Ball and Video Games kept me from being too sad about it though and I moved on. The Zeo serial works fine I don’t know why the fandom mentions that it’s non-canon because of A Zeo beginning, it can still fit, I mean what’s Power Rangers without a few retcons?

During the final season of Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers we got a new intro and a new set of heroes as the main cast had been transformed to children, that it really was is that they wanted to use the cheaper Japanese footage they had available and therefore created this mini-series.
I don’t remember much as a kid what I thought of it but it was definitely a radical change. In hindsight I think it’s awesome they incorporated the Sentai footage of the suits into the show by having them be Rangers from another planet; Something that has happened a few times since but those are not Alien Rangers, figure that out. The logo is the only one on all the seasons that breaks the mold which makes people with slight OCD like me crazy. Really odd that they’re called Alien Rangers as if its their official name and another thing to bring out your OCD is that its the only ranger team that isn’t “Power Rangers” but “Alien Rangers”. This is gladly fixed in Power Rangers Zeo where they are called The Alien Power Rangers fixing my biggest yet stupid issue that i have.

I couldn’t get enough of Power Rangers as a kid and was so happy when new episodes were coming.

In the early days of Nintendo you used to see a lot more licensing of their stuff thanks to Nintendo of America who knew it was a great idea to have your brand in different places but that liberty NOA had was taken away by Nintendo Co. LTD in japan and they decided to be much more conservative with their use of their Intellectual Property. Nowadays Nintendo is more willing to license their stuff and we’ll see mSore and more in the coming years but let’s take a look back on the first three Super Mario Bros Cartoons that the late 80s and early 90s gave to us.
