I really like Wild Force. Although my favorite PR series will always be the campy and stupid, but ultimately lovable Mighty Morphin Rangers and the hourlong drama-esque Time Force, Wild Force ranks up there with Space and Lost Galaxy. The characters and villains are very well developed and although the monsters are still stupid, they're much more interesting than the ones in MMPR, Zeo, or Turbo. I also think that the acting is really good here. Practically the entire cast is newcomers, and I think they do a good job. I hope to see them in other acting roles, especially Cole...he is very cute! All my friends think I'm insane for still watching the Rangers but oh well. I think it beats the pants off stuff like Jimmy Neutron or Rocket Power.
This was a great series especially the multiple red ranger episode. The story line was good and it had great action i am ready to see the new series and to see how they can bring these rangers back into action as they have done since power rangers in space when the blue turbo ranger got to shift into turbo one more time.
This is not the best PR show ever, but it would be 4th out of ten. Time Force being the best, then Lost Galaxy, and Lightspeed. The story is pretty good, characters are way better defined than they have been in the past, and you can see and apprecialte all the rangers as individuals as well as a whole. When going into this, I had just come off a Time Force high, and I kenw that no show could ever top that one, but this one comes close. The shinnign point is the lack of the original Gao Ranger footage. In comparison to the original MMPR, this one has come along way. As I am writting this WF is comming to the end of the season, and many plot twists, three crossover episodes( TF/Wf, and Forever Red), and an abundance of incredible and well done wire work later, I am enjoying this series and am looking forward to what will be an awesom finale.
Power Rangers Wild Force is the best season I ever saw. Ricardo Medina Jr, Jack Guzman, Jessica Rey, Alyson Kiperman, Phillip Jeanmarie, and Philip Andrew were the best Power Rangers. The best episode I liked was "The end of the Power Rangers parts 1 and 2". I also liked Power Rangers In Space, Lost Galaxy, Lightspeed Rescue. Tracy Lynn Cruz, Melody Perkins, Alison MacInnis, Sasha Williams are all hot actresses. Also I'm very upset that there won't be a Power Rangers Wild Force/Power Rangers Ninja Storm teamup.
It is rare that I make a second review on something I'll already reviewed.
However, after having seen more of PRWF, I've had a change of heart
concerning this series.
Of the episodes shown as I write this, the best ones happen to be the three crossover episodes, including two episodes with last year's Time Force group and the 10th Anniversary episode which has ten Red Rangers (each coming from a PR season) join forces to fight a common enemy. These episodes did comprised of little or no stock footage from the Sentai sources; all fight scenes were done by the American producers. To say the very least, the US-made fight scenes were very impressive and very well done. One has to wonder what a full American-made Power Rangers series would look like without any source sentai to rip off of.
The storyline is starting to improve and become more interesting. Then again, this is always the case with a PR series when it is reaching the end of its run.
I still can't stand CGI zords. I admittingly prefer grainy Japanese footage over the clean stuff, but this doesn't distract from the central product. Each year, the Power Rangers series make slight tweaks and improvements in their productions and have gone a long way from the early Mighty Morphin Power Rangers days where the show didn't take itself seriously. Ten years later, love it or hate it, the series has matured. Check the show out if you get the chance. You will be surprised.
I think "Power Rangers: Wild Force" is THE best PR season ever. The first season was of course the original, but after watching it again it seems too dumbed down. Wild Force and also Time Force are a huge step forward from the first few seasons. Great cast, better stories. Overall entertaining show.

As being a Power Rangers fan, I watched the two-parter on Fox. As
understanding the importance of Saban switching to a PR show to keep it
fresh and exciting every year, I was pleased at this beginning for a new
An orphan named Cole (newcomer Richardo Medina Jr.) is chosen by his tribe to go and venture out into the undiscovered world, as he is the "Chosen One." Upon arriving in an unchartered land, which looks like the New York or California shoreline, he goes in search of the two people in a mysterious black and white photograph. Saving a lovable golden retriever from being destroyed, Cole has a nasty encounter with the two animal control officers, which turn out to be two villains, Jindrax and Toxina.
After a restless night, Cole is abducted by four young adults--Taylor, Matt, Alyssa, and Danny (Alyson Kiderman, Philip Jeanmarie, Jessica Rey and Jack Guzman)--and taken to a mysterious floating island. There, he meets a beautiful woman, Princess Shayla (Ann Marie Crouch), who turns out to be the mentor of the four people he was abducted by, who are the Wild Force Rangers. He learns that he is had been chosen to be the Red Lion Wild Force Ranger, leader of the Wild Force team.
I will step in to avoid any spoilers of the episodes, but as it goes, it seems to be a nicely constructed beginning to yet another Power Ranger saga. Keep your eyes on this one, as this seems to be a promising PR show. But you like the old episodes (Morphin, Zeo, Turbo, Space, Galaxy, Lightspeed and Time Force), ABC Family will start airing repeats this March.
But for all Power Rangers fans, this recent incarnation is worth a peek.
Solidly entertaining (though a considerable notch below "Time Force") show
that concerns a new team of Rangers picked by a ancient Princess to defend
the Earth from ancient Org monsters. The show is bad in the first few
episodes, but vastly improves when the Zenaku saga comes along.
The show is then boosted with a superb teamup with the cast from Time Force and a special 10th anniversary episode which marks all the past and present Red Rangers teaming up to save the world from the remains of the Machine Empire.
Besides all the high points, "Wild Force" is disappointingly panned by a lot of people, just because of the first few episodes. Once you get used to it, this is a entertaining little show that gets more fun as it progresses. Tight-pacing, decent acting by 3/4's of the cast (Volok, Guzman and Jeanmarie's acting sucks), and a somewhat solid storyline help moves things along.
Followed by "Power Rangers Ninja Storm."

The good: *Well developed characters *Good acting from most of the
rangers *AWESOME costumes *AWESOME theme song *Memorable villains
*Pretty interesting mythology *A very intriguing 6th ranger despite
being poorly acted *Some great crossover episodes including the Time
Force Power Rangers in one episode and EVERY SINGLE red ranger from
every power rangers series from Mighty Morphin, to Alien Rangers, to
Zeo, to Turbo, to In Space, to Lost Galaxy, to Lightspeed Rescue, to
Time Force, and of course Wild Force in a 10th anniversary special.
The bad: *The mentor (Princess Sheila) is acted very poorly and very annoying (I know Power Rangers isn't known for it's acting, but seasons prior to this have had some really good acting (especially Time Force) *Merrick (the 6th ranger) is a really cool ranger, but his acting is wooden *The environmentalist message grates on my nerves and when the god of this mythology (in the form of a little boy) comes to complain to the rangers about how the Earth is being polluted, how mankind is evil for this, and when he takes away the rangers powers because they don't agree with him, that just came off REALLY fascist and really made me angry.
Overall the series does have some really high points to it, and some really, REALLY low lows. It's kind of a mixed bag for me, but the high points save it from being terrible.
Now that I'm able to see PR Wild Force again, I noticed a lot of
disappointments in the series, but I'm not going to count out its good
Let's start with the bad so I can get them out of the way: at the start of the series, every battle seemed the same, the Time Force team-up was sort of out of sync, and a lot of the story arcs wore a bit long.
Now the good: Forever Red was one one of the best episodes anyone has ever seen, the change of finishing weapon was appreciated, and I liked the concept of having so many zords to work with... especially when so many at one time finish off the main villain.
The series itself wasn't painful to watch, but I only recommend it in small doses.
