    Some of you may know, this coming Saturday marks the beginning of the 20th season of Power Rangers! So far, things are looking as if the new season wont be a straight copy and paste of it's Japanese counterpart (*cough* Samurai). For the first time in eight years the Rangers are high schoolers and there seems to be a lot of throwbacks to the original "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers". MEGAFORCE premieres on Nickelodeon at 1pm EST, Saturday.

    Samurai is fairly "meh". It's VERY market focused with Mega Mode, Super Samurai modes, HD and all but compared to an awesome season like SPD, it pales in comparison. The one redeeming quality of Samurai is Emily, the Yellow Ranger

    I take in Power Rangers like its Star Trek Jr. If you have already watched Mighty Morphin to Lost Galaxy and then Time Force and Dino Thunder then go ahead and lump SPD and the comming MEGAFORCE with those. Those seasons make up the expanded Power Rangers multiverse. As for RPM, its a prime example of how a Power Rangers season should be. The executive producer for the first half actually gave a damn... before he got fired by Disney. :P

    Power Rangers is still a thing? Uh, neat, I guess.

    I don't know, I'm kind of hoping it sucks - then I can go around calling it Megafarce like it's nobody's business.

    As long as they explain whether its RPM or Samurai that's in the alpha timeline, I will be very happy. IMO Samurai would be harder to explain since their story says that their ranger powers come from Japan and has been passed down from parent to child giving Zordon and the MMPR team a big ol Frak You.

    I agree, there is a Zordon vibe but hey, the guy died at the end of Power Rangers in Space. I'm disappointed in the Johnny 5 looking robot but im sure it will grow on me. If they use the Aka Red character from Super Sentai, hopefully they make him the spirit of Zordon.

    Saban got the license back for Samurai. Seems like they're banking heavily on nostalgia this time. I swear that "They said the morphers would give us power. Let's use them!" was a near exact line from the Mighty Morphin' Pilot. Heck they've even got an Alpha 5 style robot.

    Also noticed that the cards they use to morph have the Sentai ranger names on them "Gosei". Personally I'll watch Power Rangers next season. Why? Pirate Rangers and Saban having to explain them having access to all the pre-Mighty-Morphin era Sentai powers.

    They're editing out the pre ZyuRanger series and Gokaiger is season 2 of MEGAFORCE so you might as well start watching the show on Saturday.

    The RPM season was really good throughout, I did not even notice that the executive producer was fired halfway through. It really set the standard for the Disney made seasons, with Dino Thunder and Ninja Storm tied for second and Mystic Force 3rd. Now that this is a new generation of Saban produced seasons, I'm just counting that Megaforce be better than the standard that Samurai set. It just needs better dialogue, new sound effects (the ones that have been using since after Wild Force make my ears hurt), and better emotions and reactions from the actors.

    The story behind the executive producers is a funny and sad one. Eddie Guzelian was the first producer and while he was working on the show, he would give Disney footage of the show and they would approve it mostly because A ) RPM was slated to be the end of Power Rangers B ) Disney wanted to go out with a bang and thought the premise was cool. Eventually they started to bitch about the budget and fired Eddie over that even thou they told him that everything he was doing was great. After episode 18, a long time Power Rangers guy, Judd Lynn picked up things and was able to make the second half seem as if everything was all gravy. The biggest change from the first 18 episodes to the others is more usage of Japanese footage and that one behind the scenes episode.

    As for the transition from Samurai to MEGAFORCE, I just like my Ranger shows to feel as if they are a part of a greater Rangers universe. Sure, they added Bulk and Spike but Bulk was no way near the version of himself presented in >in Space - Lost Galaxy<. It also pissed me off that Skull ends up being rich and Bulk can barely hold a job. I call bullshit on that! Seriously, long time friends who have been through as much as Bulk and Skull, just don't leave each other hanging. At the very least, Bulk should have been somewhat successful while Skull went big-time. Also, they made Bulk such a punk ass bitch. Seriously! THIS guy helped saved the Earth from a all out invasion in the last two episodes of "Power Rangers in Space" as well as saved the Rangers multiple times and you're telling me that he's still whimpy when it comes to monsters?! I REALLY REALLY hope that MEGAFORCE explains Samurai to be in the Beta universe.
