I'm late to the game. I just checked out the first three episodes of Power Rangers Samurai
. You guys were right, it is
a step backward. It's not as engaging as Jungle Fury
. Those shows tried to take Power Rangers to a new level with a little more complexity and sophistication, which made it fun for children and adults alike, but Samurai
is a lot more simplistic and kid friendly. I was also surprised to hear the original Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers theme. It was a little awkward with the attempt at different lyrics. And the villains are pirates. Now I can see why they didn't want to jump into a Pirate-based Power Rangers series right after. On a more positive note, having Bulk back was a nice touch.
