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.
A preview of things to come when we talk about Power Rangers Samurai
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.
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.
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.
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.
The Power Rangers movie trailer has FINALLY been released and we have a lot to say about it. We talk about what we like/dislike about the trailer, dive into news from out of NYCC, talk a little bit of Tokusatsu randomness, and finally dig deep into Ninja Storm.
