The Power Rangers have reinvented themselves so many times it's hard to imagine a creative distinction they haven't already explored, but incorporating animal spirits is a welcome change to the norm. Each Ranger is linked to an animal whose traits complement his or her own fighting style, lending greater definition to their own personalities and individuality to their costumes. What's more, the Zords have their own personalities, and their interactions with the Rangers offer some touching moments of self-discovery.

Power Rangers Wild Force maintains continuity with its predecessors in most every other aspect of the show, bringing together five strangers to create a team powerful enough to ward off a rotating cast of comically costumed villains episode after episode. Things don't always go according to plan for these newbies, tempers flare, and differences of opinion arise, but the players are in it for the long haul and stay true to their sense of duty. Plus there's the ongoing drama surrounding Cole's quest for the truth, which keeps kids guessing along the way. Yes, the whole "costumed crusaders" platform is still a little hokey, but all in all, Wild Force isn't a bad pick from the Power Rangers smorgasbord.
