One of the many surprises dropped from NYCC 2016, Power Rangers was the biggest reveal released showing the anticipated reboot. The darker and grittier approach has not been a hit with fans, but it shows a new generation of the rangers. It looks like another series going down the Transformers and TMNT road of re-imagining classic shows.

Roger and Jordan hope we get better for the franchise as fans deserve better. The guys give us an in-depth talk on the trailer! With some added talk on the films potential.

A group of high-school kids, who are infused with unique superpowers, harness their abilities in order to save the world.
