    Default Power Rangers RPM

    After 16 years of making a kids show, Power Rangers gets darker and edgier.

    I came upon Power Rangers RPM on my normal crawling upon TV tropes and decided to start watching it. And have been blown away by every episode. And if you haven't heard of it here's a link to the page that sparked my interest.

    I wanted to see if anyone else is enjoying this guilty pleasure. Come one speak up, people won't make fun of you, (I hope).

    This thread is also open to general discussion of the series. (Past power rangers and RPM, although I've only watched RPM, and Mighty Morphin Power Rangers when I was 8 )

    Can't say as I do.

    Back to RPM though, it's a very defferent beast.

    It starts with 95% of the human race destroyed and the entire world except one city held by the enemy. And the second episode has a prison fight. In Power Rangers! A prison fight. And Dillon is bad ass.

    Power rangers of a new breed. much more serious season then the previous 16 seasons. earth is defeated and the remnants of humanity now live in a dome which the rangers must defend. the season features great character development and a compelling storyline which has been solid. it is still power rangers and still suitable for kids.

    disney has aired 15 eps and this is probably going to go down as the best season of the series. and don't forget the great lines of dialogue flynn's "scottish line. all the funny ziggy moments

    dillion's back story is very interesting and is connected to Tenaya 7 and will eventually come full circle. with ep 15 we finally got the whole team together all 7 rangers i do find it intersting how 7 rangers are going to liberate earth assuming the team can beat venjix at all.

    the season is a stand alone season and has also used very little go-onger footage like previous seasons. hell the writers even brought up super-sentai in the actually series. which hasn't been done before.

    after 16 season it's a deep breath of fresh air.

    season 2 way back in 1994 15 years ago being tommy back was great but he'll never be as cool as he was when he was the green ranger.

    power rangers in space "countdown to destruction" ironically the actor died not to lone after that

    zordons death marked the end of what i like to call the "super natural era" a era were the rangers powers made sense. since his death excluding 'light speed rescue" the explanation of the rangers powers has been stupid to say the least. jungle fury Rj just explains his reasons for the powers " i got theses from a friend who knew a friend" lol operation overdrive Andrew hardford if memory serves made the powers himself using the resources from his company i hated that.

    zordon was the last link the back story which was never explained how and why did ninjor create the original power coins and how were the other rangers powers created.

    i think someone should re-boot the series and dive into this ocean of potential material and explain some things better

    Don't forget "Ranger blue" where Flynn uses that flame that comes out behind them when they morph (presumably for dramatic effect) to kill dozens of grinders and beat Tania 7.

    The thing that's going to be really fun, is Engine Sentai Go-onger had 12 zords that all formed a megazord, and from what I read in RPM they will be piloted by 10 Rangers. Holy moly, That's going to be bad ass.

    I think Tania 7 might end up as a ranger later. She seems to have enough contempt for Venjix to switch sides.

    My TV tropes research tells me that he died and was revived in the movie (which isn;t canon) and died for real on the series in the finalle of season 6 "Power Rangers in space"

    i highly doubt it dr. k only made 7 ranger series suits. the final zords will be controlled by ziggy and dillion (fuel cell 6) go-onger only had 7 rangers.

    i would be very disappointed if judd lynn introduced more rangers. if you remeber the team was having trouble finding someone to use the ranger series green never mind adding 3 more rangers.

    as for Tenaya 7 she is the girl ranger series black was supposed to protect and obviously failed. i don't want her to become a ranger or switch sides .. hell i would be happy if she died at the end. as death is apart of this season.
