This weekend was exceptional for a multitude of astro-reasons. While our 1 year anniversary of launching our Kickstarter with hang gliders & face tattoos (don't worry. photos to follow.) will forever be engraved into our fragile memories, the main event of note was finding a television-series gem on Netflix. And that gem is Power Rangers In Space (copyright 1998, YEAHYUH!)
It was at that moment that we realized... this was what the internet was invented for.The event was so magical, that we had a vivid flashback of Stephen Hawking and Bill Gates conspiring in a molding dungeon somewhere in 1992 scheming for the moment when two youngsters would stumble upon Power Rangers in Space twenty years later. For the funsies.
The creators (Haim Saban, to be exact) of Power Rangers (IN SPACE!) thought they were "punking" all of us then-illiterate children with odd text and "idiot hearing," but jokes on you, Haim. The internet was made for this:
For those of you who are squint-prone, let us clarify. The all-encompassing Morph Zone reads:
TIGHTEN UP REALITY GANGSTER
STIGMA THROUGH IDIOT HEARING
KEEP FRUSTRATION CLEAR
PATIENCE OPEN AHEAD
GETTING AWAY WITH IT LEAD
SOME DISTANT MEMORY DROVE
GET THE MESSAGE
INDISCIPLINE ALL REMAINS
WISH DOUBLE EDITORIAL COVER.
This discovery was too amazing not to live-tweet. All weekend.
The plethora of tragic grammatical errors, while embarrassing, is strangely fitting with the dialogue. The Power Rangers (IN SPACE!) would most likely have it no other way.
Point of the story: Streaming on Netflix. Power Rangers In Space. Life changing.
