Kamen Rider Dragon Knight

So right around the time that Power Rangers RPM had started, over on the CW we were graced with America taking another crack at the Kamen Rider franchise. What we ended up with is Kamen Rider Dragon Knight which was based off of Kamen Rider Ryuki. While Dragon Knight kept certain stuff from Ryuki it also brought some original story ideas in as well. What you end up with is a surprisingly decent adaptation.

Power Rangers RPM

So we finally make it to the final Disney era Power Rangers season and boy did they go out with a bang. Much like with Power Rangers In Space, RPM was a season where clearly the writers had tons of leeway to do whatever show they wanted. Disney at the time was investing heavily in Marvel so the Power Rangers license was whatever to them. What we end up getting is easily one of the best seasons of this franchise.

Power Rangers Jungle Fury

Coming off of Operation Overdrive, Disney was coming to a crossroads with the franchise. They had just bought Marvel and the writers strike was on the horizon. So in comes Jungle Fury which despite the outside issues managed to become a very underrated season. Much like Mystic Force, it manages to tell a very condensed story and get straight to the point. It has its issues but it doesn't take away from the entertainment this season provides.

Power Rangers Operation Overdrive

Called one of the worst seasons of Power Rangers, Operation Overdrive had potential to be a really good season. The problem is that you're given characters that you don't care for(save for 3 of them) and bad guys that don't really do anything worth of damn except for Moltor. So yeah what you have is 32 episodes of just blandness and thats even with the anniversary teamup.

Power Rangers Mystic Force

What happens when you mix Power Rangers with the magic sensibilities of Harry Potter? You get Power Rangers Mystic Force. What we have is a season that is written very tight with not much leeway in terms of character depth mainly because this season was only 32 episodes. So while some characters got some shine, others didn't. Not a bad thing but it would've helped. Overall its an enjoyable enough season to watch.

Power Rangers SPD

Much like TimeForce, Power Rangers SPD was a police theme season. While we did get a solid season that had some great moments, the season also made some questionable decisions with certain characters that contradicted what was setup during the run.

Superhuman Samurai Syber Squad

Much like Power Rangers, Superhuman Samurai was riding the wave of shows that were Americanized from Japanese shows. In this case it was a show that was sort of like an Ultraman side story in Gridman. Superhuman Samurai is a mixed bag of a show. So good stuff and some questionable things as CJ and Prime sift through all of it.

Power Rangers Wild Force

Wherein we talk about the Power Rangers toy and movie news then get down the nitty gritty talking about Power Rangers Wild Force. A season that was the end of the OG Saban era but also the beginning of the Disney era. That change over alone had an impact on Wild Force.

Time Force was the first time in the Power Rangers franchise where a show pretty much follows the sentai beat for beat. Other than some minor tweaks, we were given a show that had a story that was interesting and captured your attention from beginning to end. So sit back as CJ and Prime chat it up about this show.

Big Bad Beetleborgs

Much like VR Troopers, Big Bad Beetleborgs was another Saban side project that was a success. Taking the footage from another Metal Heroes series called B-Fighter, Beetleborgs was essentially a very kid friendly version of that series with the added bonus of having interaction with the Universal monsters sort of. Its definitely different than VR Troopers and Power Rangers if only because the focus is more on the kids than anything.

Lightspeed Rescue

Up to this point, every Power Rangers season the characters obtained their powers through magic or existing tech from another galaxy. So here we have a season wherein we have a scenario where the military develops there own Power Rangers tech which gave us a very cut and dry season. While the good guys are fun to watch its the bad guys who end up being the best part of the season. So sit back as CJ and PrimeGundam talk about all things Lightspeed Rescue.

VR Troopers

So at the height of Power Rangers initial success, Saban optioned to spread his wings and do American adaptations of other tokusatsu shows. One of those shows being based off the Metal Hero franchise. In comes VR Troopers which did lots of things that made it different than just another show like Power Rangers. Sure the characters transformed into suited heroes but these characters were different.  They were young adults instead of teenagers and they had actual lives. The show overall was interesting and certain ideas from it was implemented into the Power Rangers franchise for the better.

Power Rangers Lost Galaxy

Its amazing what happens when plans don't work out. Long story short, the huge success of Power Rangers In Space made Saban and Co. reconsider continuing the show. Lost Galaxy was the start of each Power Ranger season being self contained and further pushing the mythology of the franchise. Great characters, solid storyline and arcs all combine to make an awesome season. Definitely worth the watch especially if you're getting back into Power Rangers.

Power Rangers In Space

This season is what happens when the writers backs are against the wall and its assumed a show won't be coming back. Initially, Power Rangers In Space was supposed to be the last season of the franchise. With that, the writers went all out this season. Lots of plot points from previous seasons were addressed and closed out. On top of that, we got a very engaging story, great characters, and awesome action. Definitely worth a watch with a season that was the end of the Zordon era of Power Rangers.
