I kinda have mixed feelings about this one. There are some good things and bad things that leaves me wondering about this recent set of Rangers.
The most significant improvement is the fact that the Japanese footage has been cleaned up to the point where it blends nicely with the American footage. Sometimes it is often hard to tell which is which, although there are still the little differences.
The storylines are so-so. Although it is not up-to-par with "Time Force" or "In Space", it's not "Turbo" quality either. We'll see what the rest of the show has to offer.
My only complain is the CGI zords (the giant robots). They do not fit in a Power Rangers show and are more suited for a Transformers show. Also, even though the Japanese footage has been cleaned up, the visual effects now look somewhat weak. It could have been liked this before, but it's kinda sad now.
The final verdict is: watch it once and see if you like it. I watch it once in a while, but not enough to follow it. Chances are you'll like it or you'll hate it. It's worthwhile for a sample viewing at least.
