TV Meme: Day 28

"30 Days TV Meme"

Day 28 | First TV obsession

It's morphin' time!

Mastodon! Pterodactyl! Triceratops! Saber-Toothed Tiger! Tyrannosaurus!

Go! Go! Power Rangers!

I'm sure it wasn't just me and my friends who pretended we were one of the Power Rangers. Though since I mostly hung out with girls, all of them would fight over who would be the Pink Ranger. No love for the Yellow Ranger? Sad. Me? I was the Blue Ranger aka "Billy" played by the actor David Yost. The fact that I know all of this without using IMDB is a testament to how obsessed I was with the show. But I mean Billy was the "shy smart one" who get to kick butt. My prelude to my Willow obsession perhaps?

Anyways, let's see... my level of obsession for the show was pretty high back then. I never missed an episode, I went as the Blue Ranger for Halloween once, I have a sweater with all of the Rangers, and I was there on opening weekend for the two feature films. When Zordon "died" in the end of one of the films, I was crying! Lame? Possibly. Embarrassing? Probably. Do I care? Hell no.

So to Rita Repulsa and her crazy laugh, to the flirting of Kimberly (Pink Ranger) and Tommy (Green Ranger) to Alpha 5's "Aye yi yi yi yi!," to the various states of sleevelessness most of the guys adopted... thanks. 'Twas a fun childhood.
