Power Rangers

Bosch is best known for his role as Adam Park in the show Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, for which he was cast in July 1994. In 1997 during Power Rangers Turbo he was kicked off the show due to Jason David Frank and Catherine Sutherland wanting to leave the show in addition to Saban's decision to retire Johnny's and Nakia Burrise's characters.
