Now that I have Netflix my life is sadder than ever. The Power Ranger’s movie was recommended to me and a a faint memory of one of my childhood favorite shows led me to watch it. Watching this movie made me realize that at 23 years old I have in no way gotten over my intense feelings for Kimberly Hart. If you were alive and male in the 90’s, you probably had a raging crush on the Pink Power Ranger. I mean, what’s not to love?
a. She’s smoking
b. She’s a GYMNAST (i’m already sold but i’ll continue just because i can)
c. Her name is kimberly (my mom’s name. it was a turn on when I was 4 cause I was still going through my Oedipus Rex stage)
d. Her dinosaur was the coolest- the pterodactyl, she can effing fly
e. She made pink look good
f. She rocked 90’s bangs better than anyone (even, dare I say… Kelly Kapowski!?!??!?!)
g. She could kick butt one minute, and the next be the damsel in distress- for men, she’s independent, but you can still be her hero!
Sigh. I’m sure I’ll think of more reasons why Kimberly Hart played by Amy Jo Johnson was the first woman who taught me the true meaning of love. Until then, I’ll simply gaze into those beautiful eyes on the screen and curse the fates for making me 4 years old when she was 18.
