It’s not 2147 yet but I’m sure when it arrives Captain Power will be around to fight Lord Dread. These two duked it out in a post apocalyptic future. No I’m not making things up, this really happened. I must have played our VHS recording over a hundred times through our 20 pound VCR. What was the appeal? Pure violence. These soldiers running around in shiny metal made the Power Rangers look like boy scouts. It was also the first show to have an interactive toy. Although I could never figure out how to use it.The only enemy they could’nt defeat were the parents. It’s just too gosh darn violent! Well at least I can still pretend to be Captain Power by pressing my fist into my chest and saying “Power On”.
