Rose is pretty, haven’t seen the rest of her to make a full judgement tho. Yellow ranger chick looks blah.
I don’t have high hopes at all for this season anymore. The only good things so far are Rose, and the design of the 2 main villains. Everything else is a step down from previous seasons.
Worst theme music not only in PR history, but possibly the worst theme music ever for a tv show, just generally speaking. I can’t even think of anything worse at the moment. There’s english dub One Piece, but at least it’s so bad it’s funny. Operation Overdrive is just pure terror. I wonder how many kids instantly changed the channel this year when that bullshit came on?
The fighting and action. What the hell happened here? This is a big step down from the action we saw in Mystic Force, and definitely not on par with anything in SPD or Dino Thunder. It’s empty…devoid of any kind of style or visual pizzaz. Did they lose the stunt/choreography team that was on previous seasons? It sure seems like it, because nothing about the action has been memorable at all so far.
Plot, and concept —plot really isn’t THAT important for a PR show, but O.O. isn’t really grabbing me so far on this point either. The entire concept for the season is just so “blah”. Compare to past seasons that had magic, future/high tech, and ninja themes…what does this have to offer in comparison? Archaeology? Nigga please.
Previous seasons have had me eager to see what’s going to happen in the next episode. Since ABC Fam lost Jetix, I’d occasionally download Mystic Force because ABC Kids is so goddamn slow in getting the episodes. I’m finding it really hard to care in the same way for Operation Overdrive. It’s not even a priority…I can already see the day when abc kids inevitably drops to several weeks behind TDisney’s schedule, and I’ll think “eh, whatever.” So far, I’m really just tuning in to check out Rose. Shit, just a few hours after seeing Saturday’s episode, I already forgot what happened, or what it was even about in the first place. That’s definitely not a good sign. There’s not much to look forward too either…as some of us have already seen this season’s extra ranger, and he looks silly and stupid. Omega from SPD was possibly the worst extra ranger of all time…but at least he still kinda looked cool. This season’s “Mercury” ranger doesn’t even have that going for him. It’s bad when the normal suit design is superior to that of an “extra ranger”. The “extra” dude is always supposed to be the cool and interesting one that joined later(usually after being evil for awhile and beating the hell out of the original team)
This is terrible…I already want to just fast forward to next season.
Power Rangers would be more awesome if they didn’t do the giant robot bullshit, and people got hurt in ways that “needing to rest” or just morphing wouldn’t fix i.e. broken bones or getting cut or SOMETHING. Even just a black eye.
Damn, I just watched a hour of this today, this has got to be the worst PR cast acting I have ever seen. Granted I missed a number of the PR series after LG, but the corny levels and just overall stiffness is apparently being taken to new levels.
I think thats why I only downloaded the first few episodes of gekiranger. the action and pacing and characters are all likable…EXCEPT GEKIRED. fuck gekired. hes too peppy and acting like a cat with that annoying ass voice dont help him either. he makes me miss boukenred
-why did they change the plot completely? boukenger was about finding ancient treasures (with wacky consequences) and there were separate groups of villains who would join forces with the help of the monster of the week. but in OO all the lead villains have been turned into lame henchmen for some ice pussy who wasnt even in the original. weak. instead of finding treasures they have to find a few stones for a crown, weak.
I gave up on OO after the theme song. but I lost hope in it forever when they befriended a p-p-pirate ghost! (it happened, oh jesus god in heaven it happened)
Bounkenred was some UBER-serious commander type guy IIRC…
heh, I was thinking about bumping this thread. Today’s 2-parter was surprisingly good, imo. I’ve hated this season, but the intro of the Mercury Ranger was goooood stuff. The fight he then had with those two resurrected “Fearcats”(?) was quality. Unfortunately his costume still looks goofy though…yes, goofy even by Power Ranger standards.
Still, Rose = x100000000000000000000.
This probably deserves it own thread, but they are making a Power Rangers: Super Legends game.
Also coming to Wii, PS2 and PC. Only DS screens are available so far. Can’t wait to see the console versions, this could be very cool if they do this right.
haha @ the fucked up size difference. Wtf is lord zedd 9 ft tall?! dudes taller than the door entrance.
lol…thats some mortal kombat upper right there. lo.
Fixed for truth and emphasis.
Oh yeah, and Ashley (Yellow Ranger from said show) was hot.
Been watching this on Family since I’ve been getting up too early on weekends. This, Oban Star Racers, and WITCH are completely making up my Saturday morning TV lineup. Oh, how far I have fallen. :sad:
That said, Mercury Ranger dude is cool, and those two Wildcats freaking KICKED ASS. Not since Goldar in the original series did I think to myself that one of the Power Ranger badguy monsters was cool, let alone these two dudes. The fight scenes with 'em was tight.
Green Ranger (Tommy) vs. Wildcats would be too good for words. :nunchuck:
I watched some eps of Boukenger a while back and it was cool… Dunno why I stopped, I should pick it back up one of these days. The japanese stuff is most certainly better than what disney’s put at us.
What I really want though are Zyuranger episodes… I saw like three subbed eps on Youtube and never saw anymore :sad:
Have they killed off Luba yet? She let herself be killed by Nerissa in the comics to both make up for being such a bitch to the girls and endangering the heart of Kandrigar, and to buy time for them to escape.
Sentai question: are there any non-morphed characters in japan that are as popular and idolized as Tommy Oliver?
I just want a 3d-fighter…:sad:
That game has such strong potential. I still think the best possible thing would be a blatant rip of the Viewtiful Joe action.
…and what’s that…? My precious Oban Star Racers is still on? I thought the show had a definite ending that aired late last year. I haven’t seen it since ABC Fam dumped Jetix.(I will probably hate that particular network forever because of that)
Yeah, Fearcats and Mercury Ranger have managed to save Overdrive for me. The show is actually a bit interesting now. I’m no longer watching it just to check out Rose.
I have to ask: What was the best season for me to catch up on after the original? I have just seen Mystic Force and I was hooked, and I just recently rewatched Lightspeed. I’m trying to catch up on Dino Thunder and I heard really good things about Time Force. Any suggestions?
And Overdrive is actually interesting. For some reason, the whole 5 different factions going after the crystals thing is interesting to me.
In JSG, i was hoping the evil villain would bite into a yellow bell pepper and say
That would have totally made my day.
