Not to be taken seriously.
6 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

Superhuman Samurai Syber-Squad was a short lived TV show in the same vein as Power Rangers. Like Power Rangers it took existing footage from a Japanese Sentai-type show and added North American characters and voices to it.

But there's a difference. Power Rangers took itself seriously, SSSS didn't or at least they didn't intend on it. Everything about the show was seeming done tongue in cheek including the cheesy acting and storytelling. Just look at the title. You can't take that seriously. When they have a computer virus that wipes out people's information online, suddenly the people themselves forget who they are. When you have a virus that affects cold as in the air conditioning it somehow turns people's "hearts" cold and makes them bad. When you have them wonder if in another universe that they all speak Japanese, you know they're having fun with the concept. It's very silly when you get down to it.

The setup for the show is very formulaic but what do you expect? Something happens to get the bad guy angry and he works with the computer bad guy to create a new virus monster. The virus monster winds up in the school, where all the action takes place, and does stuff. The heroes all transform into their SSSS electronic forms with one being the actual robot and the others as attack ships / add ons for the robot and the robot and virus fight. Robot wins, evil guy is angry and that's that.

One bonus is of course Tim Curry hamming it up as the evil guy in the computer. None of the others really went onto anything of note afterwards.

So if you're up for some cheesy fun then this might be for you. But please, don't take it seriously.
