I was a huge fan of the original Power Rangers back when I was younger and I remember thinking that VR Troopers was a pretty fun show too.

FROM SHOUT! FACTORY
This Fall, prepare to join the action and relive the action adventures of Ryan Steele, Kaitlin Star and J.B. Reese, three young heroes with extraordinary powers enabling them to transform into virtual superheroes – the VR Troopers! On October 2, 2012, Shout! Factory, in collaboration with Saban Brands, will unleash Saban’s VR TROOPERS: Season One, Volume One 3-DVD set. Featuring the first 26 action-packed episodes from the first season,this collectible DVD set is a must-have for fans, kids and collectors, and has a suggested retail price of $19.93.
When VR Troopers premiered in 1994, it was the first children’s series to take viewers into a world of virtual reality. In this exciting action-packed live-action series, three seemingly ordinary teens face the challenge of saving the world from total domination by a powerful ruthless industrialist and his evil alter-ego. With the gift of “inter-reality travel” the teens utilize the power to transform into crime-fighting superheroes and enter the high-tech sphere of Virtual Reality. They employ their strengths, explosive martial arts skills and newfound superpowers to prevent the evil Grimlord and his mutantarmies from escaping the virtual plane and entering the real world.
I decided to watch VR Troopers with my four year old son who loves watching the new (and sometimes, old) Power Rangers.
I figured since he liked that kind of a show, he’d enjoy VR Troopers as well. As we watched the show together, I didn’t seem as into it as I thought I would be. My son did like the premise of it but soon got tired of watching the show and decided to watch something else. It was cool at first but then the same, cheesy storyline kept popping up and we both lost interest in the show.
I thought that it would have probably been fun to see some special features on any of the DVD’s but there wasn’t any. I think if it had some special features, it would make me want to buy it.
