Power Rangers Turbo: Volume 1 Review

***Disclosure-Sample copy was received for review.  All opinions stated are based on my own experience.

What were you watching 20 years ago?  Were you a mighty morphin power ranger?

Following its debut in 1993, Saban’s iconic live-action pop culture series, Power Rangers quickly became the most watched children’s television program in North America. Emphasizing the importance of teamwork, responsibility and helping others by following the adventures of a group of ordinary young people who “morphed” into superheroes, this long-running series has been seen in more than 60 countries, translated into numerous languages, and remains a mainstay in children’s programming blocks. For 20 years, the highly entertaining saga and fan favorite characters from Power Rangers have captivated children and adults alike and are beloved by legions of fans worldwide.

I was the pink ranger!  I liked that my brothers and I could all agree to watch something.  We could each pick a character we wanted to be.  We each had our own favorite power ranger.

Continuing from the exciting events of Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie, the five Turbo Rangers use their new powers, weapons and high-tech supercharged vehicles to battle evil at faster speeds than ever before! The beautiful yet vicious space pirate Divatox follows the Power Rangers to Angel Grove to get revenge for ruining her planned wedding to the volcanic island deity Maligore. From her mobile Subcraft armed to the gills with torpedoes and explosives and crewed by a motley bunch of monsters, she relentlessly pursues our heroes. But the Rangers are not alone in their fight, as they are aided by Dimitria, a wise sage and friend of Zordon; Alpha 6, an advanced robotic sidekick with a streetwise demeanor, the Blue Senturion, a robotic intergalactic traffic cop from the future; and the elusive Phantom Rangers, a one-man army whose very identity is a mystery. An all-new team of Rangers is armed and ready to carry on the Power Rangers legacy!

This is a 3-DVD box set that contains the first 23 episodes of the series.  Grab the family, sit back and enjoy an afternoon inside.  Have each family member pick a power ranger to be?  Of course, I am the pink one so that is who I pick.  Unwinding in front of the tv watching this series was exactly what our family needed.  Recommended for the entire family, young and older.
