I fell MMPR was one of the best shows of all time. It was the starter for the hugely successful series which would last well over the next 10 years. But, i feel the original series was one of the only decent one, which gave way to trash like space and lightspeed rescue. I mean, what a spin off. They cannot even compare with Mighty Morphin’. But kids these days are being dragged into the newer versions, with all their fancy CGI, what happened to good old-fashioned butt-kicking? The old characters were there for a good time, or so it seemed. They always looked there on the set for fun, and the comedy and carelessness gave the series the edge. But now you get dino thunder (HUGE spin off of MM, like dinozords etc) and spd. There is no fun in those. No obvious enjoyment. And the bad guys are a joke, i mean seriously what happened to good old rita repulsa and lord zedd? Now we get a gut with a skeleton head where you can even see the actor’s face under the mask, and goldar has been replaced by a posh little girl who does nothing but draw monsters all day. I mean seriously. Get MMPR, which will give you a true perspective of what Power Rangers truly is.
Go Go Power Rangers
I’ll admit I’m a Power Rangers fan, I first saw the Power Rangers when I was about 10 and I’ll admit I really had a fun time and made going though the weekdays before or after school not so bad. I personally was aware and have a fascination of Super Sentai shows, I was a fan of the “Ultraman” and even the “Infra Man” movie, seeing that we were finally going to have Super Sentai shows in America was a dream come true for me.
Watch it now as an adult I still have fun with it, it’s a bit of a guilty pleasure now because as fun as it was it’s was kinda flawed, from a plot line that doesn’t really develop, some moments are really cheesy and stupid, the list goes on but in a strange way those flaws I feel are what give the show a charm. The whole show is one of those ones you pretty much simply turn your brain off and have fun and that’s not a bad thing.
There is just a lot I always liked about the show from the costumes which I thought were awesome and are still my favorite Power Ranger design; my favorite one is the White Ranger costume it just has some sophisticated warrior quality to it. Mainly it was those helmets I really liked as each of them were unique and had a animal charistic etched to them. They even had cool weapons each were of a different specialty and vehicles called Zords that can combine to form a giant Mecha, sort of like with the anime “Go Lion” (a.k.a. Voltron).
And of course the music which is great especially the theme song which is one of my favorite theme songs ever, it is just so darn catchy.
I like the characters, they weren’t deep characters (Well it’s a kids show and each episode was about half an hour what do you expect.)All were colorful and unique.
The villains Rita Repulsa and Lord Zed, those two are great, their villains you love to dislike. Both are really live action cartoon villains over the top to a tee, each of their schemes are like Pinky and the Brain schemes as their always scheming to take over the world but failing miserably, though sometimes they just cause chaos for no reason or because their bored. I even like it when both characters interact with each other which makes it all the more funny.
Bulk and Skull these two always crack me up, it almost feels at though both could have a sitcom show of their own. Both are lovable characters because their really not bad people their hearts are in the right place, their just well fools. I like that sometimes they sometimes try to cause some grief for the Rangers only to have the grief backfire on them. Though most of the time they have get rich and fame quick schemes which are always fun. One scheme I liked was seeing Bulk audition for some Martial Arts Commercial and it is just fraking hilarious as the guy doesn’t know jack squat about Martial Arts he’s practically just imitating what he probably saw in martial arts flicks.
And of course the Rangers themselves are solid. My favorite one of course is Tommy whom in a way is sort of like the Dick Grayson of the bunch. Just as Dick Grayson has had more hero roles in the DC verse from “Robin”, “Nightwing”, “Batman” and now is current a secret agent, Tommy has had more hero roles in the Power Ranger’s verse from being the Green Rainger, White Ranger, to even the Red Ranger in Zeo which is awesome and isn’t something I’d like to see happen with hero/superheroes more often. But I really like him as a character he’s just got cool charisma, fire, let alone kinda a bad ass as he not just can kick ass as a Power Rainger but also as his regular self, and the actor Jason Frank really is a martial arts and a good one at that, shame he didn’t get to do action movies afterward.
Second favorite is Kimberly the Pink Rainger. Yeah, I had a crush on the actress Amy Jo Johnson myself, she is just hotter than hell to me she is just one of the hottest women on the planet and a capable actress to boot. She’s energetic, tough, and has a certain sweet charm to her. Both Tommy and Kimberly they were sort of the first romance couple in the franchise and they were solid, I really liked the back and forth between them it really felt like both had genuine chemistry.
But of course we’re all in the show for one thing the action and it delivers really well, it basically plays out like a live action shonen anime as they are never dull they go at a good fast pace and have two rounds that are different types of battles. The fights are well choreographed and the effects are on par. From see the rangers fight the Puttys or any other nameless faceless monster henchmen. Down to the Zord battles which to me were always the highlight, really liked the model designs of the zords and the costume of the Mega Zord. As well as the costume and make up designs of the monsters of the day that were always unique. Just like with the “Godzilla” and “Ultraman” battles it is always fun seeing super sized foes fight each other.
If your a veteran fan then it’s worth taking a nostalgia trip, or a Rockie or current fan of the franchise then this show is a good history lesson to see where it started.
Power Rangers still has the power.
