    Watch a few episodes of Lightspeed Rescue - especially any with a lot of Vypra. You will never complain about bad acting on Power Rangers again.

    Oh it was a fine season. One of the better finales, I've always thought. But that doesn't change the fact that most of the cast couldn't act their way out of a paper sack.

    Weird coincidence, Shinkenger did the same thing this week too LOL!

    But I love this series, with the wird stuff they had to work with from Go-Onger, this series is turning out well! I dont know how many times I watch each episode but I cant get enough of it.

    Ziggy, Best Ranger ever! And Flynn, I just love listening to him talk :lol

    Ziggy is fucking hilarious.

    "He's in a box."
    "...he can't get out..."
    "Oh..now he's...uh.."

    And of course, the now infamous:

    Ziggy: What the--
    Dillan: --fo?

    Kickback im gonna take yer word for it and give it a shot but only cause I loved the show as a kid and since this is possibly the last season of it I feel im obliged to watch it die the horrible death it deserves :) 

    EDIT: yea I DLed and watched episode 1 not bad for the first bit but my god the fight choreography sucks always has though and all the effects still look lame but not as bad as some others ive seen ill watch episode 2 3 & 4 just to give it a shot but if there no better than 1 then I say its crap lol

    and I know that once that Zord shows up ima hate the show that thing is not only ugly as hell but an abomination to all Power Rangers and the designers of it really need to be shot seriously and the same goes for the Ranger suits themselves

    EDIT2: ok I watched the other 3 ill admit the show isnt bad like the other incarnations but the fighting is still bad and the Zords are still ugly as hell but ill watch more of it why not its one of the only thinga half way decent on TV anymore lol

    Keep in mind that all the suits and zords are imported from Japan's "sentai" series. Not always the easiest thing to try and adapt ... rumors were that Go-Onger in Japan (what RPM is based off) was made to be more "Japan-friendly" with the sillyness and abstract ideas because Disney had informed Japan that they were done with Power Rangers, and then Bandai went ahead and started production of Power Ranger toys for the United States, and then someone reminded Disney their contract with the New Zealand studio still had a year left, and thus they were forced to do RPM.

    Hence the silly Japan zords (with eyes and such) that would make no sense in most English countries.

    The old EP (who's name I forget at the moment) proposed the idea of making it more mature, before seeing any Go-Onger footage. He mentioned that he checked some out on Youtube and pretty much went "What the fuck!? This is what I said I'd make a more mature show out of?!"

    I can't wait to see what they do with Shinkenger.

    I know what the Zords are from but cmon they couldve modified them to remove the eyes and stuff it makes the megazord looks like a moving totem pole lol imo the best Zords were the originals, those train ones, somewhat SPD, and the Turbo zords all the rest are pretty much crap imo

    and I kinda wish it wasnt so obvious that the Rangers arent hitting anything when there fighting theres some shots were you can clearly see them swinging/kicking air and enemies flying everywhere lol though it is kinda funny

    Yeah, that's what gets me about this series. It goes from trying to be darker and more mature(according to Kicky) in the normal part of the show, to beyond silly when they bust out the Zords with the cartoon eyes, and that actually talk!

    It's like trying to mix oil and water.

    Another awesome episode. Don't think that, other than the Zord fight, they used a single piece of Sentai footage. Ziggy continues to be win ... though I'm confused. Dillan's zord appearance was built up ... and Ziggy just gets his? Even though he "isn't Ranger material"?

    Eh, I guess you do what you have to do with Sentai footage.
