It Was a Thing on TV: Episodes 423 & 424 + Live Show 45 – Gracepoint/Class/Power Rangers (1993) Premiere Episode Live Show

This week on It Was a Thing on TV we honor two anniversaries of popular shows.

First, We start our celebration of the 60th Anniversary of Doctor Who by looking at this American adaptation of “Broadchurch”. Adapted from the ITV drama created by future Doctor Who EP Chris Chibnall the American version brought back the Tenth Doctor himself David Tennant in the lead role. Did this limited event series find an audience on FOX in 2014 or was it another victim of Lost in Translation?

Then, our tribute to Doctor Who continues with an entry that picks up where it all began. Join the students of Coal Hill Academy as they team up with an alien prince and the teacher/warlord he’s psychically tethered to as they protect the school from otherworldly threats for all of 8 episodes. “Class” is in session.

Finally, in honor of the 30th anniversary of the Power Rangers franchise, Greg and Chico in this live show recorded back in September go back to 1993 and take a look at where it all began with the premiere episode of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers in this special live show.
