The 2010s began with a slice and dicing motion as the Power Rangers Samurai leaped onto the scene.
If you think about pop culture, the beginning of this decade was when the nostalgia trend really came into its own with the return of things like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or the blockbuster scene full of sequels, reboots, and adaptations.
The Power Rangers also backflipped right onto this trend with an entry into the franchise soaked in nostalgia harking right back to the beginning of the franchise. So, let’s see what Jayden, Kevin, Mia, Mike Emily, Antonio got up to during the time as the Samurai Rangers.
Bulk returns to the show
Bulk is back as the comic relief. Though, where is Skull? Well, apparently Skull is now a successful businessman and has a son called Spike.
So now, Bulk and Skull have become Bulk and Spike. Spike literally becomes Bulk’s apprentice as the veteran bumbling Power Rangers fanboy now thinks he’s a Samurai master.
The beginning of the Neo Saban era
The House of Mouses Power Ranger toys were swiped back by Saban ushering in the Neo Saban. As a result, we say goodbye to Power Rangers with superpowers, but of course, we keep the spiffy uniforms.
I mean technically, the Alien Rangers began a trend and was cemented by The In Space Rangers.
The shows used a re-hash of the Mighty Morphin theme
Nostalgia was the name of the game and it was time to hark back to the good old days. We’ve talked about the return of Bulk but bad things come in three and I reckon good things come in two.
That good thing (if you’re a massive Power Rangers fan) is your treated to a theme that almost serves as a remix of the original theme.
The return of the Mobile Phone Morphers
Oh dear, they’re back. The mobile phone Morphers rear their tacky head. I know they maybe be more discreet but so are Crocs and you wouldn’t use those as Morphers.
Have I left anything out? Why don’t you let us know in the comments!
