This was an interesting series. It was quite different from the standard "group fights a bad guy who wants to take over the world," since the villain has already won.

This version of the long running Power Rangers franchies goes where no Power Rangers season has gone before. It takes place during a post apocalyptic setting, after most of Planet Earth was decimated by a computer virus known as Venjix. However, there is one place where survivors can live. That place is the domed city of Corinth. However, this safe haven is not invincible, and every so often, Venjix will send Attack Bots to destroy the city. That is where the Power Rangers come in. They are the protectors of the last human city on Earth. In short, a lighter, more kid friendly version of Terminator Salvation. Definitely one of the best Power Rangers seasons since Disney bought the franchise back in 2002, but the violence may be a little too much for anyone under the age of 11. It also may be hard to explain to your seven or eight year old when they ask, "Why are they out in the middle of the desert?" When the answer is because Earth has suffered Nuclear Warfare and that's all that's left. (Though Nuclear Warfare is not mentioned, it is implied do to an explanation by Dr. K. that Venjix took control of the world's defense systems. Plus, it is also mentioned that radiation exists outside the dome, but no one seems to suffer from radiation poisoning.) Overall, although serious at some times, it is a very fun and comical show and should be a nice refresher for returning Power Rangers Fans as well.

As good as Power Rangers will ever get

I honestly really like it. This show is better than the previous seasons of power rangers, which I've been watching on and off for the past 17 years. I hope that this show's ratings increase and get power rangers back to being popular among children again. It's got an interesting story, great characters (who are NOT interchangable in this season, like in others) and the writing and cinematography have never been better in Power Rangers.

One of the best shows on television

What an incredible show this is. The acting and dialog are much better than the typical fair that's been put out. The storyline isn't episodic, you're drawn in, not wanting to miss any of the following episodes.
The soft spoken sterness of Rose McIver's "Summer" character plays off Dan Ewing "Dillion rough edges like Logan and Jean Grey. Anyone who has even hinted at not liking PR and really love a good sci fi rush should check this title out.
