Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #PowerRangers

Ok, seriously I don't think I've ever been so happy to have something come out on DVD.  No, I'm NOT crazy!  You see my four year old has a serious Power Rangers addiction.  We have been recording the current serious Power Rangers Samaria on the DVR so he could watch them anytime he wants.  But then my little brother brought over some Might Morphin Power Rangers from when HE was little.  Bryan was IN LOVE.  But these were single episode VHS tapes.  The only place we have a VCR is in my bedroom.  Which is fine, Power Rangers is a great way to get a few more minutes of sleep on a weekend.  But seriously 26 minute episodes...just as I fall back to sleep after a certain someone asks me a hundred times who my favorite Power Ranger is, I'm being thumped on to change the tapes.  It's like medieval torture in this day and age to have to get up out of bed, rewind a tape and change movies! Yes, I'm kidding...sort of.  But I'm serious enough to be totally excited to get a whole season of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers for my little Ranger to watch while I cut a few extra Z's on a Saturday morning!
