Oh man, I made the mistake of checking in on the Power Rangers on Twitch marathon, and I wound up coming across the episode "Trouble By The Slice."   The one where the Rangers get baked into a pizza and the Red Ranger threatens to toss your salad!.


This is the zaniest, weirdest, goofiest iteration of the show I can remember and I've been hooked all evening.  Not just the silliness, but you know I'm a HUGE fan of all the old school effects, there's weird composite shots and model shots and hand-drawn animation, weird robot and creature designs... there's a shot where we see a real car roll down the highway, then a whip pan hides a transition to a toy car shot on a model street looking up at the robot fight, there's a stage shot of a fight that we pull out from and it's happening on the robot while the city is in flames... mooks throw up grappling hooks to climb the robot and in the next shot it's tiny little army figures painted weird colours hanging on fishing wire off the robot suit... I love that sh*t.

(Watching it in the living room was fine, up close in my room, the interlacing is f*cking killing me)
