Review this tv show
Jan 29, 2014This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. When a franchise has been going on for as long as Power Rangers has, at least some shoddy series are inevitable—and that’s exactly what Power Rangers Time Force is to the Power Rangers franchise. Time travel can be a difficult thing to handle in a children’s TV show, and since it is, after all, intended for children, some slip-ups are to be expected, but Time Force handles it atrociously. They’re almost 1000 years in the past, and though it is distant, they can’t let anything affect their future. That’s just how time travel works, at the simplest level. Time Force, however, ignores this almost completely, almost never bringing it up, not allowing the Rangers any second thoughts to what they’re doing at any point. Even if it is a children’s show, this is the basis of time travel, that even children can and should understand.
The other major sin of Time Force is the fickle villains, Ransik and Nadira—particularly Nadira. The series begins with Ransik being in trial and condemned to being cryogenically frozen forever, and it’s constantly brought up how evil he was and how difficult he was to capture. From the very beginning, we know that he’s a very evil man, and that he’s going to be a force to be reckoned with. His daughter, Nadira, helps him escape, and is constantly doing a lot of the field work. She knows what she’s doing, but she keeps doing it because, like her father, she hates humans. Toward the end of the series, Nadira helps delivering a human baby, and has a sudden change of heart. Suddenly, all the hatred she had for humans disappears. All the terrorization and hatred that had been instilled in her by her father have suddenly disappeared. This is a children’s show, however, and such slipshod writing is to be expected. The part that makes this terrible, even for a kid’s show, is when Ransik nearly kills her by accident, which suddenly makes him decide to abandon all of his work, the work that he escaped prison for, what he’s been working his whole life toward, and surrender to the Rangers. Even for a kid’s show, that’s transparent writing. Although his daughter is the only thing he seemed to ever care about in the series, to abandon everything he’s been doing up until that point so suddenly without trying to think of some other alternative, is all very sketchy.… Expand
Dec 1, 2012First off, they do not make shows like they did in the 90's. Here is the clincher, 90's shows by today's standards are for adults I mean look at the crappy shows they make now. I love this show. Not only does it show a good difference between good vs. evil but, it really brings me back to all the best shows of all time. Anyone who says you have to be a kid to appreciate this is ignorant of growing up during this time. Please support this show. It is on Netflix instant queue watch it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!… Expand
Mar 1, 2012i remember as a kid watching power rangers. the awesomeness and the coolness emitting from the episodes of power rangers, i was loving it. i had to be obsessed with PR, but maturity caught up with me. after a certain point i lost interest due to continuous replays of the show in the TV. when everything went back to normal PR was just plainly stupid. a show only to appeal to kids. PR was plagued by repetition with all episodes ending the same way with some variety until the end, but nothing big. the plot was mediocre while the acting could get bellow that. effects, costumes, fights, all were bellow average. the only good there is left, is the memories, the nostalgia, the lack of a mind of a kid incapable of criticizing. in the end Power Rangers mighty morphing should be left just that a memory, never to be touched by a mature self and lose its value as a good memory and turn to thoughts like " how in the aging blazes did i liked that?". stay away from it.… Expand
