    The franchise has been wrong ever since Saban bought it back. They did it as cheaply as possible, with mediocre actors and writers, and it's been dumber and more superficial than it's been since the earliest seasons. Bringing Judd Lynn back to produce Dino Charge is a good sign, though.

    As I rewatch, I'm finding that, his own ridiculous personal opinions on the franchise aside, there's actually not all that much about Jonathan Tzachor's approach to the season that is all that distasteful or mishandled. Even if the story is almost beat-for-beat from the Sentai, it still works by-and-large in a 'Westernized' context and offers everything that I like in a Power Rangers season: good action, interesting villains, likable characters, and decently paced progression and escalation.

    Red gets his own "command chair" and everyone else has to stand up.

    I think that's inevitable. It's the only incarnation the general public really remembers and is nostalgic for.

    Can't watch the full ep from Canada. Will be patient.

    Question - is the samba dancing thing from Kyoryuger still in evidence?

    No.

    The episode was great, after four years of crappy PR the show is finally back to being good. Thank god Tzachor is fone, what a hack! So much potential wasted by that guy.

    Oh, if only it weren't on Nick.com. Their video player doesn't get along with my computer -- the picture lags behind the sound.

    The first episode of Dino Charge was awesome. In one episode it had better writing and acting than any of the last two shows (I only count Samurai and Megaforce as two). The characters were likeable, and the villains seem interesting. If it keeps going like this, it should be great, and not just compared to Samurai/Megaforce.

    That was great. 100% original footage, characters with actual personality, some legitimately funny scenes, and good action. A huge step up from the disaster that was Samurai and Mega Force.

    ^All original? No Sentai footage at all? I assume that will change once the Megazords show up, right?

    Since Nick.com doesn't work well for me, I'll have to check whether this is out early via On Demand.

    What browser are you using? Perhaps you could try a different one to see if the same problems occur?

    ^I'm pretty sure I tried it with at least a couple of different browsers and had the same problem. I think the issue is with my laptop's speed or memory or something. It's a few years old.

    I suppose I could try watching it on my smartphone, but it's got a pretty small screen.

    I can't confirm that the premiere was 100% original footage, but that's what the posters are saying in the episode discussion thread at Ranger Board.

    I'm really not feeling the love for Powers from the Past, as my review - which you can see below - makes clear:
