"Karate Robo Zaborgar" on Temple of Bad

This time on Temple of Bad, we tackle Karate Robo Zaborgar. What is KRZ? It's the 2011 big budget, big screen adaptation of a well-loved 1970s Japanese kids' show. If you know The Power Rangers, you know the shtick. Inanimate objects turn into robots and fight monsters. But the filmmakers gave us some surprising twists and meta-commentaries in their adaptation/update. Imagine if the first Star Trek film had been half remake of "Space Seed," and half The Wrath of Khan. Not that there aren't robots wearing thongs in this film . . . 'cause there are. Have a listen here.
