My Top 5 Super Sentai and Power Rangers Seasons

So there’s a thread at Rangerboard asking people to list their top 5 seasons of Power Rangers and Super Sentai. Here’s my list which I’ll also post here/ =)

SUPER SENTAI

I only started watching Sentai with Shinkenger.

1. Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters – Amazing. It featured a strong, dramatic, emotional storyline, but didn’t forget to have a little fun to help put things into perspective. It had legitimate and truly surprising twists that kept things exciting. The tweaked formula helped the season feel fresh. It had a large group of likeable characters (human and not) and a deliciously crafty and slick villain. It had a great, talented cast. But maybe, most importantly, Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters started a journey and satisfyingly concluded it. And that conclusion couldn’t have worked without having plenty of heart and emotional connection. Continue reading

What Disney Did Right with the Power Rangers

Hindsight is 20/20. That’s why I do Hindsight Reviews. What you thought at first may not be what you think weeks or months later.

After two and a half years of the the 2nd Saban Era of Power Rangers, many fans are now fondly looking back at the Disney Era of the franchise. That’s amazing considering the way fans felt while we were actually in the Disney Era. Continue reading

So What’s the Big Deal About Power Rangers RPM?

You have to be a die-hard Power Rangers fan to know a season called RPM even existed. Even (so-called) fans never heard of it.

But for a season that was meant to be Power Rangers‘ last gasp and a season that didn’t even air on television in half the country, RPM has drawn a lot of praise and is held in very high regard by fans who actually saw it. For some, it is a standard they’d like to see Power Rangers hold up. For many, it was a different style and approach that was great to watch. Continue reading

Recap and Review: Power Rangers Samurai: Clash of the Red Rangers – The Movie

DryedMangoez Presents Television That Defined My Decade


The 2000s have come and gone. A new decade is about to begin and lists of the best movies, music, television, paint colors, boy band, furniture, light fixtures, etc. are pouring in. As we close out 2009 and the 2000s, I thought about my own list. But my list of television shows aren’t necessarily “the best,” but the shows that defined my decade. The shows that meant something to me the last ten years, shows that left their mark in my mind and in some cases my heart as well.

Power Rangers RPM – 31 and 32: Danger and Destiny – Finale


The Rangers get out of their cars after the magnetic wave has shut off all power inside Corinth. Hybrids are walking towards them and they get ready to fight, but Summer reminds them they’re still people and they can’t hurt them.

The Rangers try to go another way instead as Venjix begins broadcasting across the city. Corinth is now under his control, anyone who resists will be killed and no one can save them; not the guards, and soon not the Rangers. Hicks and Vasquez are standing on either side of Venjix as Grinders hold Col. Truman.

Ziggy is worried about Dr. K and runs back to the base. The Rangers follow but are met by an attack bot. They morph, except for Dillon, who is feeling the effects of the activation. He leaves.

Auxiliary power is up and Dr. K gets to Continue reading
