Can the writers for this also take on the recent seasons? Maybe I'd stop flinching when I hear the words "Super Megaforce." >_>

Lol...don't hold your breath. You'd have better luck with the writers of the recent film, seeing how the tones of both are somewhat more mature than the tv series.

Well, at least we've had Dino-Charge since then, that was fun,

I've been enjoying that and Ninja Steel.

Ninja Steel is a bit more frustrating for me. They have an engaging cast (for the most part, Jordi Weber is in the "pretty but wooden" category, see also Samurai Red, Samurai Blue, and Mega Force EVERYONE), Nico Greetham is just the twinkiest twink who ever twinked (and in PR that's saying something), Kelson Henderson is a delight as their mentor, and it's nice that it's the Pink Ranger who's the tech-head.

But the overall story is just a bit of a mess, the Red Ranger has no actual story or personality beyond "missing relative" and we just did that with the Dino-Charge Red Ranger. This season's decision to have "comedy sidekicks" is painful, never mind that one of whom is played by an actor who is clearly in his early thirties (Seriously, he makes John Travolta in Grease look about the right age) and the whole Prism thing never made a lot of sense.

But it's STILL beter than Samurai or Super MegaForce ever was... how they managed to butcher Gokaiger like that baffles me.

I think that's one of reasons I harp on (S)MF more: It was right around when I was marathoning Sentai shows... and started with Gokaiger. So much wasted potential there.

I'm wondering how the this year's show is going to go... and then how Saban will handwave half the team being thieves.

In fairness, PR can be quite clever with it's adaptions.

Power Rangers in Space and Lost Galaxy aren't derived from a space-based series' (and yes that shows badly at times, but they did their best with some serious communications issues with the Japanese production team.

The slightly silly go-Onger with it's google eyed mecha became the frankly amazing "We start this series just AFTER the bad guys have won and laid waste to the planet" RPM

I'm curious as to whether we'll get Kyuranger or Patoranger/Lupinranger next year.

The upcoming "Shattered Grid" storyline is apparently drawing together rangers from the entirety of PR history

Hard to say how much focus newer teams like Megaforce will get. But it looks like Time Force will play a fairly important role

So, did anyone else hear that really dramatic, deep version of the theme they'd play at the end of a multipart episode when they read the last page?
