I, Eye Guy

Revisiting Power Rangers is a project which compares the video of the original airings of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers with that of the reversioned ones which aired on ABC Kids in 2010. For the most part, we leave it to the fan to make their own (educated) decisions on whether the changes are improvements or not.

Static shot of the Earth as seen in the opening creditsThe segue of the rehashing of Day of the Dumpster into the opening segment is much better than what they had been doing, but as they’re still cutting stuff from the episodes, the need to -add- stuff for time seems odd.Static shot of the Earth.
