RU’s Views: The Power Rangers Suck and We Shouldn’t Be (Re) Normalizing Them

The more attention we give this property the more legitimate this high level of suckitude becomes.

The Power Rangers suck. They are just are awful. They are the dark shame of 1990s children's entertainment that, for some unknown reason, have been re-inserted into American pop culture. The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, aka Voltron without the plot development, are a blight on our collective conscience whose original line-up looked like this:

Why's the black guy got to be the Black Ranger? What's the deal with the Yellow Ranger? Oh, and the Blue Ranger? He left the property after four years due to constant "harassment by members of the production crew who targeted him over his sexual orientation."

But, above and beyond the obvious ignorance of how that first line-up looked and the bullying of a gay man on set, we cannot forget the most important thing about the Power Rangers is that they suck so bad I'd rather watch a Webster revival over accidentally watching the trailer for the new movie.

As the father of a five year-old I know just how hard it is to hold firm to your beliefs while looking in to disappointed eyes because he doesn't like the expansion of the "Daddy won't let me watch Power Rangers because they are an abomination unto G-d" rule to include toys, but as parents we do what we know is best. And what is best is the obliteration of the Power Rangers.


Because they suck, that's why.

About the Author - GHERU

RU, or as he’s known in the writers’ room: the cute one, is relatively unappreciated in his time.  RU’s YouTube show, RUviews is watched by literally multiple people every month and his Outhouse articles have helped line many a bird cage.  Before you send RU a message, he knows that there are misspelled words in this article, and probably in this bio he was asked to write.  RU wants everyone to know that after 25+ years of collecting he still loves comic books and can’t believe how seriously fanboys take them.  RU lives in Akron Ohio (unfortunately) with WIFE, ‘lilRuRu, and the @DogGodThor.  You can also find him on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, & even Google+ (if anyone still uses that).
