Power Rangers (Saban Era-Disney Era, Hasbro Era-present)
Power Rangers is a long-running American Entertainment and merchandising franchise built around a live-action television series featuring teams of costumed heroes. The television series takes much of its footage from the long-running Japanese tokusatsu series Super Sentai, produced by Toei Co. Ltd.
The Saban and Disney Eras were both well-received from the fans and critics. The Saban Era was aired on Fox Kids, and while The Disney Era has been aired on the Disney-owned networks (ABC Kids, ABC Family, Toon Disney, and Jetix). The Hasbro Era currently airing on Nickelodeon.
Why It Rocks
- The concept of having an American version of the popular Super Sentai is interesting and executed really well.
- The Saban Era was one of the greatest 90's that they ever made, while the Disney Era was truly epic!
- Zordon Era (1993-1998) was an amazing continuation story very well, while Post-Zordon Era was great.
- Memorable characters like the heroes, allies, and the villains.
- Awesome fight scenes.
- It even had crossovers, such as To the Tenth Power, The Power of Pink, Forever Red, Thunder Storm, History, and Once a Ranger (despite the awful team-up).
- Most of the seasons have very great finales.
- Great seasons, such as Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Power Rangers Zeo, Power Rangers Turbo, Power Rangers In Space, Power Rangers Lost Galaxy, Power Rangers Time Force, Power Rangers Wild Force, Power Rangers Dino Thunder, Power Rangers S.P.D., Power Rangers Mystic Force, Power Rangers Jungle Fury, Power Rangers RPM, and Power Rangers Beast Morphers.
- The franchise has recently redeemed itself during the Hasbro Era.
- During the Neo-Saban era Seasons, it was not well-received and went downhil. Thankfully, as stated in WIR #8, the franchise started becoming improving again once Hasbro bought the franchise.
- Lightspeed Rescue & Operation Overdrive weren’t well received either.
- Overuse of Kalishplosions in the Disney-Era, mainly Operation Overdrive. Even RPM made fun of this.
- Vypra, Gluto, Choobo, Marah, Kapri, Mora, and General Crunch are unlikable villains.
- Mighty Morphin Alien Rangers only lasted 10 episodes.
- It's spin off, Masked Rider (an adaptation of the also popular Kamen Rider), was not well received.
