In the last episode during the legacy battle the Red Turbo Ranger makes an appearance with the rest of the turbo rangers, but the only two actors who portrayed the Red Turbo Ranger were Sewlyn Ward and Jason David Frank and they already make appearances as the Green Mighty Morphin Ranger and the Blue Space Ranger. So the Red Turbo Ranger in theory should not have been there. See more »

Well, what's to say? Back in 1994, the internet was in it's infancy. I was working on the Power Rangers movie in Australia, building zord cockpits. Yes, a mad fan of the show, working on the show and surrounded by Power rangers. Hence my handle (Zordmaker), a handle I have now held since the movie came out in 1995.
Today I sat down and watched the first two episodes of "Power Rangers Megaforce" with my 9 year old daughter, who'se name (naturally) is Kimberley.
Before that handle I was known on the 'net as "Paul MMPR Forever". Others would jest at me and my handle, saying that Power Rangers was a fad and would never last. Who'se had the last laugh now eh? "PR Megaforce" does justice to 20 years of history with the show coming home to roost with it's original producers but still filmed in NZ. The first ep is deliberately formula and essentially the same as the 20 year old fossil.
As with the original, there's a long way to go yet for Megaforce. It has a the same problems as it's more modern predecessors (Samurai & back to about Time Force) in that there's simply too much smash and bash action and not enough time to tell a story.
But story was never a strong point with Power Rangers. That's why when we see some (as was the case with the first series back in 1993-94) we covet it so much. My satisfying feeling is that Megaforce might be more than just a 20 year homage to the original.
Give it a chance. Especially if you're an old fan of the show, have drifted away and might want to come back. I've never really liked everything that Jonathan Tzachor did (that second PR movie was a low point) but hey, without him there would be no PR - and now (it would seem) no Megaforce.
Go for it, team. Well done! Zordmaker
