People all over the world are doing their best to stay home and keep away from crowds to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus, and as a result, many are looking for entertainment they can enjoy from their living room. If you happen to be a Power Rangers fan, you're actually in luck, because there is quite a bit of Power Rangers entertainment to find online or at least that can be shipped to your house online, and we've collected some of our favorites in one place for you. That said before we get to some of the bigger franchise things we wanted to shine a spotlight on a few other community-driven projects that you might want to check out.
The first is a series titled Power Rangers Unworthy, and it puts a darker twist on the franchise and a unique spin on the Lord Drakkon Shattered Grid saga. The premise is that a figure known as the First Ranger has reawakened because of Drakkon's crimes against the grid, and is pretty much throwing out everyone for the bad apples. A team of Rangers has assembled to take him down, and you can check out the full series here.
Another project to take a look at is Crimson Vision Studios' Rise of the Ninja, which features Brody the Ninja Steel Red Ranger (played by William Shewfelt) traveling the galaxy to learn from other ninjas, including Ninjor. You can check out the full teaser for the project here.
Last but not least is a series titled Life After Power Rangers from Noah Baron, featuring the Green Ranger adapting to normal life after his hero days are done. It's a comedic take on the franchise that is delightful, and it even features some appearances form the original cast, including David Yost and Walter Jones. You can find the full series can be found here.

Power Rangers Comics
It's never been a better time to be a Power Rangers fan, and you can credit a big part of that shifting tide to BOOM! Studios. BOOM! launched their Mighty Morphin Power Rangers series during a lull in the franchise, but slowly built up a fanbase with character-rich storytelling and gorgeous visuals. Since that launch we've had one of the biggest events ever in Shattered Grid, which has been followed by storylines like Beyond The Grid and most recently Necessary Evil, not to mention Mighty Morphin's companion series Go Go Power Rangers and the series of one-shots and graphic novels.
Most recently the franchise has grown again to produce Mighty Morphin Power Rangers/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which you should absolutely give a shot because it's amazing.
