mighty morphin power rangers

power rangers

Mecha TV series such as Power Rangers give us unrealistic expectations for problems to end in a given, finite time. Did you watch it when you were a kid? Rita Repulsa 'n Crew created a problem, five (or six, in latter episodes it's always six) rangers appeared, battle ensued, battle intensified, things were being supersized, battle was won by the rangers, all in one hour time lapse.

Or did you watch Kamen Rider Black RX? Same thing. It ends in one hour or one hour and half, depending on how many advertisements your TV station got.

But who can honestly, in their right adult mind, pointing to his/her problems and say, this problem will end in a week, that problem will end the day after tomorrow, that problem over there will end next hour?
