“While I love this season, and have watched it numerous times, my most recent re-watch has changed my outlook on the overall product.
While most fans have no problem saying that Lucas, Katie and Trip are shafted in terms of character development, they are not alone. While the main story arc is good, it's still Wesley's story. He is the one that decides who is relevant. Also, while his journey into manhood is great, he is still childish and I can't help but agree with whoever is knocking him down a peg, no matter whether they are supposed to be in the right or not.
Then we have Jen, who most fans will say is the real hero. No, she isn't. She's set up that way in the premiere after her fiance is fridged, but then she just becomes someone for Wes to defrost. She has no real” read more
"This is the season that has the best use of a sliding scale of silliness vs seriousness, without giving the viewer a serious case of mood whiplash. IMHO, that is what makes everything so great.

Timeranger's main story tends to split off into individual character stories, while Time Force pushes half of the main cast back so that Red and Pink's stories are the main story. Yes, it's"
“This seems to be everyone's go-to season for comparing Power Rangers to a prime time drama, like Smallville. Yes, it does have mature elements like death; but so did just about every other season in it's own way. In fact, one of my favorite episodes is "Movie Madness," which is one of the silliest episodes in the history of the franchise.
If anything, what this season does best is weave together the silly and serious stuff so well that you don't feel any mood whiplash. And that's why I love it so much. You'll have a two-parter that is filled with some of the most absurd things that you could think of, then immediately follow it up with a Ranger being stalked and brainwashed. But it works.
Sure, this season has it's flaws; what season doesn't? Especially one with a” read more
