After Power Rangers Turbo failed to reignite the Power Ranger Mania that had swept the early 90s, a new season would emerge that saw the protectors of Earth launch their franchise to new heights. Setting controls to outer space, the show took on new challenges, broadened the scope of its story, and created a new style that recaptured the imaginations of many viewers, keeping the Power Rangers name alive for years hence.
Youtube channel The Disney Brain deconstructs this shift from the mild fender-bender of the Turbo season to the rocketing fan-favorite adventure that was Power Rangers in Space, examining the innovations of plotting, characterization, and overall expanding ambition of this benchmark in Ranger history.
With recent disappointments and an uncertain future for the television production, will we see this beloved show ever fly so high again? For now, we look to the stars and dream.
