Jyger’s Rant – Turbo A Power Rangers Movie Review Part 05 + Next Time on Jyger’s Favourite 5

The final chapter of my analysis on this movie, what went wrong, as well as some things I need to say in its VERY small defence, it’s the Turbo Review Part 05!

Intro theme is ‘Roar’ by Treat, as always. Images and clips and whatnot are from Super Sentai, Power Rangers, Metal Gear Solid, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Final Fantasy VII, and Inception.

Finally, coming up in the next episode of my Favourite 5 series, I take a look at the bad girls you love to hate (or for some people, hate to love).

Music is from Chicago. Images are from Pokémon, Dragonball Z, Sailor Moon, Digimon, Full Metal Alchemist, and Bible Black. And finally, the title card is done by GracefulWitch: http://gracefulwitch.deviantart.com/

  1. The urban legend that Turbo nearly killed Power Rangers is a complete pile of fucking horseshit!

    It’s true that ratings for the first half of Turbo were at an all-time low, but that was from a two-year ratings decline that had been stuck on the franchise since Mighty Morphin’ Season 3 in 1995 (Zeo would’ve gotten big ratings, but Big Bad Beetleborgs was getting all the attention in late 1996). But, after the change of cast in “Passing the Torch” happened, the second half of Turbo started getting good ratings, which was good news for Saban and the Power Rangers franchise.

    So overall, is Turbo the worst Power Rangers season of all time? Nope, not even close, because for me, it’s Mystic Force by a fucking mile. I mean, like, Turbo is far better than Mighty Morphin’ Season 3 for example, and it’s similar enough to Mighty Morphin’ Season 2 in terms of episode quality. Y’know, it’s a perfectly acceptable season. On paper, Turbo sounds like it’s horrendous, maybe because of the new faces, or the massive swell of negativity, but I found Turbo quite easy to watch, especially the second half. After my two pence worth, I don’t want people to be like “Oh my god, he’s saying it’s not the worst Power Rangers season ever! Fuck this guy!” because Turbo’s maybe like, the fifth worst Power Rangers season ever, y’know, but it’s not the worst, because that honour goes to Mystic Force, like I said before.
