Pretty Good
19 April 2002 | by See all my reviews

Now that I look back at this, I think it was a pretty good show. It was something like Power Rangers, but not as good. especailly the Power Rangers series today. They are 10 times better than this. But I was never happy when a show had a kid as a hero, but this show pulled it off with 3 kids as superheroes. I think if the japanese version "Metal Heroes" continued in Japan, Beetleborgs would probably have gotten better just like Power Rangers.
