Power Rangers: Dino Charge
The Complete Season
review by Bobby Blakey
In 1993 The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers took the world by storm when it debuted on FOX kids. The show was an Americanized version of the original Japanese Super Sentai series, using footage from the original series spliced together with the acting of the American cast to create something like kids had never seen. Now over 20 years later the series is still as strong as ever and kicked off its twenty-second Power Rangers: Dino Charge in February 2015 and now Lionsgate is bringing the complete season home to DVD.
The series followed a group of teenagers with super-powers left to protect the world from various monsters and villains using their martial arts abilities and mighty Zord robots. In this latest chapter in the series on prehistoric Earth, an alien entrusted powerful Energems to 10 dinosaurs, but when the dinosaurs went extinct, the Energems were lost. Now an intergalactic bounty hunter is determined to reclaim the Energems and destroy our planet. A new team of Power Rangers must find the lost Energems and use their Dino Chargers to power up an arsenal of dino-fueled battle gear, Zords and Megazords to save the world. This latest series maintains everything that has made the show popular from day one, but with the luxury of seemingly better effects and overall quality. The show knows it’s a cash cow in products outside the series as well and has worked in these crystals to inject in the varying weapons that serve up yet another perfect vehicle for toys. While it does lend itself to the products the crystals in this series actually make more sense and offers up a wider range of not only the rangers themselves, but also the stories of finding them. They have always maintained the footage of the Japanese version that has clearly been spending more money on their effects and Zord battles that both look way cooler, but are still silly and fun. Like with any of the shows as it progresses it tends to add new rangers and this series keeps with that tradition.
If you have never watched the show or looking for a chance to get back into the series then now’s your chance. This collection brings the entire season of the show together in one collection featuring all 22 episodes of the season. This collection doesn’t offer up any special features but does offer up over 8 hours of action in one set.
