For those wanting a Power Rangers fix right now, Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers: Season 3 is out. This was pretty much the end of the original run. Pink Power Ranger Kimberly (Amy Jo Johnson) moves to Florida to pursue her gymnastics dream. This means Katherine (Catherine Sutherland) gets the pink identity. The big thing is that Bulk and Skull (Paul Schrier and Jason Narvy) want to be cops. They give up trying to unmask the Power Rangers. They’re gonna fight evil with a badge and gun. But does that matter since Rita Repulsa’s father Master Vile and brother Rito Revolto have arrived with more schemes for world domination. These would be the last 33 episodes of the series before it would morph into Mighty Morphin Alien Rangers.

Shout! Factory presents Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Season 3. Starring: Amy Jo Johnson, David Yost, Johnny Yong Bosch, Karan Ashley, Steve Cardenas, Jason David Frank, Jason Narvy and Paul Schrier. Boxset contents: 33 episodes on 4 DVDs. Released: July 2, 2013. Available at Amazon.com.
