POWER RANGERS RPM: THE FINAL EPISODES

POWER RANGERS RPM: THE FINAL EPISODES

Reviews
Well, that's it. Power Rangers just aired its last new episodes for the foreseeable future. These episodes were not only the conclusion to a year-long arc, which many fans had felt was one of the better seasons we've ever had, but it also brings the entire franchise to a close, effectively ending a 17-year saga. That's more than half my life! Expectations were understandably high for the series finale, but how much did it live up to the hype that was generated in the gulf between the show's recent hiatus and now? Ultimately, the finale remains true to what made the show what it was this season, though the execution of its major story elements may have fallen short in some areas. "Danger and Destiny" begins immediately after the events of the previous episode. Dillon looks as tho...

Dr. Tristan of HeroPower Well, here we are, at the end of the year-long season of "Kamen Rider Dragon Knight." We got here a lot faster than I was expecting to, considering the show was basically cancelled only weeks before the finale would have aired. In an unanticipated move, 4Kids released the final four episodes of the series all in one shot. Which is how I chose to watch them. And as I try to separate the feeling of loss associated with ending another American toku show, from my overall critical sense of how well the episodes were made, the strongest thoughts the show has left me with are a desire for more.   When spoilers from the spanish-language dub of the show came rolling into the fandom, I avoided all of it, but could not help but notice complaints about the show'...

 That's right, kids. "Kamen Rider Dragon Knight" may be over, but the Riders are crossing over into the world of "Power Rangers RPM!!!" ... Well, not really. But hey, I can pretend. "If Venjix Won" marks the triumphant return of what I would call one of the best seasons of Power Rangers ever. Sadly, it was the first of only four episodes that remained before the end of the entire franchise (remastered reruns aside). But putting all bitterness about the show's demise behind, I was delighted to see the show again. In many ways, I had forgotten how to watch this thing. It may sound like an odd comment to make, but it had been so long since the last time I had seen it, I found myself struggling to remember different plot points and character dynamic...

So um... Yeah, that was easily one of the best episodes of the entire series. It was another giant action episode. So much so that we didn't even see Kit's face the entire way through. But for what it's worth, I thought his vocal performances were surprisingly good. In fact, both Lunsford and Mullins have stepped it up for these last couple episodes. Last week pretty much screamed at us that this was going to be a major episode, and I am so very glad that it made good on its promise. Len's vow to take out Strke actually succeeds, and it happens in a very satisfying way. I love the way the Survive Mode was used. In Power Rangers, there's this tendency to introduce a cool new gadget and then pretty much just show it kicking ass non-stop until the end of the episode, in order to make it ...
