I loved Mighty Morphin Power Rangers! Particularly the Green Power Ranger arc.

But have never gotten into any of the re-imaginings like Ninja Force and Samurai something or other. They were just never as good.

I still remember the day the Mighty Morphin film was released on tape. I was so excited I was running to the video shop across the road from my house and ran straight out into the road and nearly got run over by a van. Good times.

Oh yeah this was about Megaforce....

I haven't watched any of that yet. If it is similar to how Mighty Morphin was maybe it's worth a go.

OMGOSH ITS SOOOOOO WORTH IT.
no worries, i was talking about both mighty morphin and megaforce. here, ill send you the following link to the opening of megaforce"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DijccfJY_uI

even the opening song is super similar! but bascially same idea, theres a giant head (a descendant of zordon) that recruits 5 teenagers to fight evil, and he has a robotic assistant that's very similar to alpha.

the guy playing the red ranger can already fight, the blue ranger is a geek, and the black ranger fights using a soccer ball (instead of hip hop like zack) lol. but wow! so worth watching!!!!

That does look pretty good actually. Similarities to MM are uncanny there's even gonna be a green ranger!
Although I'd hate to be the guy with a shark for a Zord when someone attacks on land....

Good call, I'll definitely check it out at some point

I've watched Megaforce, simply because I'm a Super Sentai fan, and ever since Samurai (Shikenger in Japan), I wanted to see how bad they where going to butcher Goseiger (the japanese equivalent to Megaforce), and what they where planning to harvest from Gokaiger (the series those keys in the cave are from).

From a nostalgic standpoint, I'm not liking it. It's.... too campy, I dare say, worse than the original. Speaking of the original, the first episode of Megaforce? It's like Megaforce wasn't seeking it's own identity. Honestly, I absolutely DESPISE the Red Rangers in Saban's revival of the series.
Like with Jason, Tommy, Tj, Andros, etc they all had leader qualities, but they had a lot more room to improve and get a little back story. With Samurai and Megaforce, the two main Red Rangers just feel so... fake. Like they don't want to give them a personality other than "Friendship is magic" and "believe in yourself". Theres never any room for doubt with them, which I find distasteful in a leader.
A leader needs to question his/herself and attempt to change themselves.

Jason was the original leader, he always knew how to take charge, but his weakness was Tommy. Tommy was his best friend, he was tempted by evil, and prone to becoming evil again. When Tommy lost his powers, Jason blamed himself and needed to discover that "hey, he tried his best, he won't let it happen again".

Tommy... oh man Tommy, while Tommy became "perfect" during Zeo/Turbo. One of the things he struggled with is his Ranger origins (something a little reflected on in Dino Thunder, but hardly brought up), he needed to get over that there was a point in time where he was evil, and he tried to kill his friends. He's also the last original Power Ranger an needed to lead the newer generation, and show no fear, so they can learn when his time comes to retire.

TJ..... is somewhat difficult, given he was only the leader for half of a season. I'd like to think TJ needed to prove himself a leader, that he wasn't Tommy, but his way worked. At least that the best way I can think of it.

Andros was something else entirely. With the near death of his best friend, his sister missing, his mentor/friend Zordon on his death bed (In a way), and with the galaxy about to be ruled over by evil, Andros needed to lead humans he's never met before, and was uneasy working with, while at the same time, fighting with his own inner demons, distrust of other, not wanting to get close (as to not repeat what happened with the Silver Ranger), and at the same time, in love with fellow Yellow Ranger, and discovering his supposed dead sister was alive, and the Ranger's mortal enemy. Then there was the final test of killing Zordon himself, to save the galaxy, but at the cost of bringing harm to someone he cared for, his absolute mission since the beginning.

I could go on with the others, but frankly, other than Leo and his affinity for removing his shirts, and dead brother complex. I never really took the time to watch anything else (with the exception of Dino Thunder, SPD and RPM).
These new guys however... well you kinda get my point by now.

Long opinion short:
If you like the original, don't watch it. If your smoking a little something, then watch it, and be amused.

I've been watching it since the season premiered. I'm a huge fan of the original Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers, so with this as the 20th season I'm watching every episode to catch any celebratory episodes they do. I didn't really like the first episode, because it felt like they just copied the original MMPR pilot. It wasn't paying an homage, they literally took some lines from the show, as well as the Zordon-Alpha dynamic.

After a couple episodes the show got on its feet and into the classic Power Rangers feel. It had the friendship theme and the high school superhero feeling while still letting it be its own thing, which was a good thing. But one thing that bugs me is that the Red Ranger is...I don't know. He's the new kid in school, but we don't know anything about him other then that he practices martial arts. He doesn't really know the others and they seem to trust him for some reason. It doesn't make sense. And the singing Pink Ranger thing in the latest episode, even by Power Ranger standards, is pretty weird. It's overall a little too campy for my taste, but I'll check it out each week to see what they do for the anniversary.
