Island of Illusion Part I

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.
