Even so, I think I'll still dream of one day somehow becoming a "power rider".
No one ever dreams of becoming an 'alien', but 'Power Rider'..... that's a whole other realm!

"Lil Johnny, what do you want to be when you grow up?"

"A 'Power Rider' daddy!"

You mean 'Power Ranger', right Johnny?"

"No daddy, a 'POWER RIDER' like that Depress in a Coma guy!"
