Overall Opinion: I remembered watching and loving Power Rangers when I was really young. The whole costumed superheroes fighting monsters, aliens, and sorcerers which resulted in a final battle between a gigantic robot and a rubber-suited monster all over the tiny models that are meant to represent a small-sized city. The last Power Rangers show I was still into was Jungle Fury which combined the typical Power Ranger scena"
Better Supporting Cast?
Regarding only the regular appearing characters, I'd go with Jungle Fury. Miki was just your basic retired hero, while Fran eventually played secret keeper to the heroes. And then there's Mao who could kill Shafu with one finger. (That's not a Chuck Norris joke. He actually poked someone and they flew across the room.) With the other six kenma/masters, it gets a little interesting. The first three masters in Jungle Fury could astral project themselve"
"Somebody bring me some food!"
"Uh, welcome to Jungle Karma Pizza, can I help you?"
"Which part of 'bring me food' don't you understand?"
"The part where you were yelling at me."
Note: Jungle Fury scores pretty low on the Bechdel Test, as there are a total of TWO passing conversations that I can remember."
"I can't help but feel that anytime Haim Saban or Elie Dekel gives an interview about Samurai returning the show to it's roots, that this is what they should be going for. It really does have the classic feel, without having to go back and rehash the High School aspect yet again.
The Master-arc was great (I'd still count Good Karma, Bad Karma, if only for the hilariousness of the MOTW) and the final episodes were terrific. Add in the Spirit Rangers and you've got a pretty good season.
