Turbo felt like it should have been on TV, to me. The production values weren't that much better than the series that followed. The plot wasn't dreadful, it just didn't really go anywhere to me. Divatox was definitely the highlight.
It seems to work well enough for Japan, with the Sentai movies basically just being oversized episodes.
I didn't necessarily mean the TV feel as a bad thing. As for the sentai movies, some of them aren't even oversized.

While I didn't dislike Ninja Storm (even if it was Hurricanger-lite) I do think PR does better when it exercises some originality. Plus, it'd be nice to have put a bow on the previous seasons. For those reasons, fanwank or not, I like the basic Hexagon premise.
