Power Rangers RPM is the 17th season of the Power Rangers franchise.
Why It Rocks
- It is handled by Judd Lynn, who is a very creative head writer for Power Rangers as a whole.
- Very interesting backstories for the RPM Rangers, especially Dr. K, Gem, and Gemma.
- Venjix is a super intimidating threat to the RPM rangers. He is also the only PR villain that actually succeeds in conquering Earth.
- Toy sales were successful.
- It takes a silly Sentai and turns it into something dark and awesome.
- That being said, however, it still has plenty of funny moments that retain the charm of its source material.
- Great action/fight scenes.
- Great character designs, especially for the villains.
- This show aired concurrently with Samurai Sentai Shinkenger.
- The finale is AMAZING.
- It's got a direct sequel Power Rangers Beast Morphers.
- It is, by far, the best of the Disney Era of Power Rangers.
- It holds the title of the best and darkest Power Rangers season as a whole.
- It caused it's Japanese counterpart to lose vasts amounts of ratings, due to being a more successful season.
- It teamed up with Power Rangers Samurai, a very terrible Power Rangers season.
- It didn’t get to team up with Power Rangers Jungle Fury.
- The toys of the Megazords from the show are just cheap knockoffs of their original Japanese counterparts in Go-Onger.
- The theme song might be a bit irritating for some people.
- Tenaya 7 can be annoying at times.
- General Crunch is a terrible villain.
- While it's awesome, the following seasons are 2010 re-version of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and Power Rangers Samurai are poorly-received.
- This was the last season from Disney Era that was of quality until Dino Charge (first half) and Hasbro Era.
