He better not come back for another series
I was almost going to stop watching Power Rangers because I thought we could be stuck with Justin, but the ending made me wonder what the next series would be. So I stuck by Power Rangers as they went into space. I'm glad I stayed too because Space is still my favorite PR series. As a kid I loved how they looked back to some older series with Adam coming back and actually using his powers and with Zordon being kidnapped. They did have an episode where they met with Justin again and that was a good episode I have to say. There was that TMNT crossover which was dumb imo, but oh well it was only one episode. Space was a darker series too and it did that much better than Turbo. The series did start the Battlizers which can vary for me, but its not a big deal. The story was good with the enemy being related to the team in someway. It made for good writing and good twists for the series. My favorite part of the series was the ending though because you cannot forget it when you say it. I will spoil this sorry about that, but Zordon dies! The series took a big move with this showing its finally time to completely move on and do what sentai does with having new team memebers in each series. Also the episode showed some quick characters from other series and ended the Zordon era with a big bang!
With this new move the franchise started the Lost Galaxy series and it was good, but it was trying to be like Space at times imo. It was another dark series and I respect that, but it was another space theme because Lost in Space reborned the series. As a kid I liked it, but now I'm on and off because the series wasnt all that original. It did take somethings from Gingaman like with their KuroKishi, but did somethings different like killing off a character! She just comes back though for some reason in the final episode, it was weird. Also from a sentai view now it seems odd that a sci-fi theme is going with a sentai that was about nature. Rescue Force for me was good as well mostly with their own sixth ranger, but kinda copied GoGoV. Time Force had a great cast and a great villian, but it suffered from copying Timeranger. Then came another series I disliked, Wild Force. Its shares the same problem with Time Force, but a lot worse. First the red ranger did change, but it was bad change as Cole is one of my least fave red rangers. Also this is the first cut and copy pr series imo because it does mostly everything Gaoranger did! Ninja Storm didnt copy too much from Hurricanger, but big points were copied expect for their sixth ranger which I liked that change it was a good idea to have Cam become a ranger.
Why did you have to come back?!
Another great series saves the day though with Dino Thunder having mostly completely different villians, cast, and plot points. Dino Thunder brought back Tommy for one for go as a ranger of his own because he is just that awsome. I didnt like their sixth though it was similar to AbareKilller, but worse mostly with the character Trent, at least he had a good bond with the main villian. Now we get to the parts I hate the most about Power Rangers, the dork era. It first started with SPD and wow I hated this series the villian was good and having a rivalry with a hero was a great idea, but it suffers so much from other cast members. This is my least fave cast because they are cut and copy or they are changed to much. Also they were just annoying expect for Doggy he was fine, but Bridge........ yea skip that there will be too much rage then. SPD also had the worst team ups imo because they were implausable and boring like the whole series. Also barely any original ideas just copy the episodes it should be fine. This continued for a while as we had Mystic Force which had an ok cast, but it copies Magiranger, it was as bad as SPD though.
Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr... Stay Away From Power Rangers
Now we are at the series that everybody hated, Operation Overdrive..... AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!! I mean wow even as a kid I hated this series back then when I was a kid the past two series still had some good moments imo because I didnt know about Sentai back then, but OO was just plain bad. I even hate it more because I love Boukenger its my favorite sentai series. It suffers from copy and paste and when it does somthing different its the worst move possible mostly with you know who being a robot! Even the team up was a fail because even with Adam we had Bridge! Also some other people I didnt really like at least Blue from NS and Yellow from DT were there I liked those two. The series even failed with the villians with replacing a good villian with two dumb ones and having everyone else be dumb as well. Even the other rangers were a pain in the ass, pink was boring, blue was a really bad actor, yellow was plain in the worst way possible, and black is.... well he wasnt the best at acting and he cannot compare to Bouken Black an ok character. The Silver was just bland as well nothing special about him, but nothing to get enraged about. Now with that fail of a series what was next.... oh yea.... Jungle Fury.... ANOTHER COPY AND PASTE SERIES!!!!!!!!!!! I mean what was going with the franchise were the writers dead or something so Disney just half assed it. I dont want to talk about Jungle Fury, please leave me with some happiness.
GO F*%& YOURSELF!
Next was Disney's last Power Ranger series and I was so happy because after those series I thought it was dead already. Now I did see Go-onger before so when I saw the beginning of RPM my jawed dropped! RPM was a really good series, it was original using a comedic series, but making it dark. Even with some annoying characters like Gem and Gemma they had some good moments and werent the worst characters ever, but Ziggy was close. Still this was a great improvement from what we have been seeing for the past years. Now there is Samurai (I know there was the MMPR remake, but I never saw it because I didnt want my inner child to die!) and we are back to Operation Overdrive NOOOOOOOOOOO! The worst part is that Saban got the franchise back and its this bad already. Sure there are two good characters Mike and Antonio and there is Jayden who is improving with his acting at least. Mostly though Samurai has no original ideas and you can see what I think from one of my first posts.
Thank you RPM
So I dont hate Power Rangers completely, but there are SOOOOO many series I hate and there is only five I really liked. The only sentai I had so much anger with so far is Goseiger and thats only one out of like 15 series I have saw. There are ok ones as well with PR, but the bad ones really stick out and it changes people's opinions a lot. Also there is the fact that I hate people just calling japanese live action series Power Rangers when they havent even seen it! So in the end I will always remember my childhood with Power Rangers and I will stick with it hoping for another original series.
I will always remember it
