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.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (6 ):
Kids say (8 ):

The show will entertain young viewers but not tax them and will probably spur many requests for Power Ranger toys. The long-running Power Rangers franchise has been through many incarnations over the years, but the basic nature of the show has changed little: Athletic and appealing young people are transformed into superheroes, creating a nearly unstoppable team. The primary difference between each character is the color of their uniform, and the brightly colored costumes -- especially the bulky helmets with their opaque visors -- make the individuals seem almost interchangeable. One Red Ranger (Eka Darville, in this series) is much like another.

Power Rangers: RPM's simple structure and very basic storylines make it easy for kids to follow (an episode's plot typically goes like this: The Power Rangers encounter robots; fisticuffs and explosions follow; the Power Rangers emerge victorious), but the show is loud and action packed, which makes it a bit intense for the youngest viewers. Still, there's never much doubt about how the battles will end, and the Rangers trade witty quips during their fights, so even they seem to know there isn't much conflict in their conflicts.
