FlixList: 15 Power Rangers Episodes Perfect for a Movie




leading line

5. Island of Illusion (MMPR Season 1, Episodes 27-28)

With having to rely on episodes of its Japanese counterpart, Zyuranger, for footage, you get insane things when Saban was trying to make the most (yet spend the least) out of what little it got. When you see a five minute scene get expanded into an hour long episode, you know America had to improvise (there’s an entire season of this with the Green Ranger). The first (and wackiest) example of this is “Island of Illusion.” The Rangers are sent to a magic island where the team is subject to illusions which ruin their confidence. No, that’s really it. The episode’s got a rhyming little person, weird camera tricks, and flutes. All good stuff. Put that in the movie. 

4. Power Ranger Punks (MMPR Season 1, Episode 17)

They’re are plenty of examples of “Power Ranger Gone Bad” throughout the first three seasons alone, but
