I think Power Rangers are my newest special interest.

The actor who played the Green Ranger recently died, sadly.

Whenever the subject of Power Rangers comes up I'm tempted to go into a tirade about how all the footage of when they were in suits was taken from the Japanese show Kyōryū Sentai Zyuranger and the yellow ranger was actually dude. Japan already had shows like this since like the 70s, Super Sentai, a genre of tokusatsu about super hero teams that would transform and have designated colors, etc.

I'm sure you knew that though, it's probably the first piece of trivia anyone who learns the backstory on Power Rangers will discover. I'm tempted to watch the Japanese show.

The actor who played the Blue Ranger was also bullied for being gay.

I think there is a Netflix documentary that talks about how the show was adapted for the American market.
