With the clink of champagne glasses, we begin our newest entry into the long-running Super Sentai franchise.

After achieving some success by mixing up their well-worn formula with the previous series, chief among my hopes for their latest endeavor was that they'd continue to reevaluate and reinvent their style, which sometimes felt a bit old hat. It's fitting then that we kick off the new story in a casino, as Lupinranger VS Patranger is in a gambling mood this premiere week. Let's zipline into the first action-packed episode and see if it paid off.

Cloak & Dagger follows the story of tw...

It's been a wonderful season for tokusatsu. From the colorful, high-flying adventure of Uchuu Sentai Kyuranger to the intense, take-no-prisoners action of Kamen Rider Build, the world of special effects television has rarely been so exciting.
