It’s the 20th anniversary of Power Rangers, a momentous occasion in the history of franchise which fueled our childhood.

As this year has been full of fail in terms of planning for San Diego Comic-Con 2011, me, Deb, and Rams were lucky enough to catch Power Rangers Samurai panel at the very least.
The panel started with introduction of the moderator, THE BULK himself, Paul Schrier. On the way to the podium, Paul tripped over (a little physical comedy) and laughter mixed with applause ensued. Paul then began to talk about his involvement with Power Rangers Samurai, and how it’s been wonderful to him. After the brief statement, Paul introduced the first (un-aired) episode of Power Rangers Samurai. The first episode introduces how the Samurai Rangers united to fight against Nylons Nylogs.
