Many centuries ago, the android Peebo and the Bio Robo came to Earth from the fallen Bio Star. The Bio Robo showered five people with the Bio Particles, which would be passed on to later generations. In the present day, Doctor Man and his Shin Teikoku (New Empire) Gear threaten the world. Peebo must find the descendants of the original Bio Particle-showered five to form the Choudenshi (Super Electronic Squadron) Bioman.
For a "kiddie" show, Bioman was ahead of its time in almost all aspects. Although part of the long running sentai (battle team) series, Bioman stands out for being a pioneer. The first sentai to have two female members and no standard "finishing move", Bioman's quantum leap from the previous year's Dynaman in terms of costumes and SFX quickly made it a fan favorite in Japan and around the world. The show in general has a mature (for kiddie shows) tone, although a few episodes DO degenerate into kiddie fanfare plots. Still, long before Power Rangers (which can never be described as "ahead of its time" or "mature"), it was Bioman that introduced a whole generation of fans (especially in France and in my native Philippines) to sentai..., no, to Japanese tokusatsu (special effects) superhero shows in general. Even if you hate Power Rangers, (which is basically kiddified sentai), you might find something to appreciate in Bioman.
