? Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers: Season One, Vol. 1

30 episodes for $15. You can’t beat that… unless you have Netflix Instant.

There are a few Disney Blu-ray releases tday, but I feel like the one of most interest to the nerdernet is this one. It contains both Rescuers movies and a disc of extras.
Well, I hope it wasn’t like this.
A horrible ’80s movie where evil businessmans/stuffed shirt Joe “Mitchell!” Don “Mitchell.” Baker tries to shut down an arcade, which the area nerds must defend, preferably by making girls take their tops off. I’m making it sound infinitely better than it is. Seriously, don’t watch it.
The 1982 sci-fi anime classic finally comes to DVD in the States, in Japanese but also with the classic Streamline sub.
There is absolutely no way this movie lives up to its title. No. Fucking. Way.

About Author

Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
