Dino Thunder--Dunno what it was, but it was just really fun for me.

SPD--*shrugs* Loved Deka, and SPD didn't let me down.

It's definitely MMPR. Closely followed by PRiS. Both are great series, while iS has the better story. I dunno, I like em all up through Wild Force.

First season of Power Rangers for the same reason some people today still watch the original B&W Godzilla movie (Cheese factor anyone XP )

And SPD because it had something, something that made me want to see it again only with a better writer... And then I did when I saw Dekaranger ^^

MMPR & DT
& if you ask me as much fan service as we had in DT they really messed a great opportunity to really bridge the the seasons with an MMPR team-up. But i guess that's what are fanfics are for :)

The actors can't stay young forever. JDF was lucky, his looks and physique hadn't gone down the drain too much by '04, but some of the others are mere shadows of their former glory, and Thuy Trang, of course, is deceased. Things like "Forever Red", "Legacy of Power", and "Once a Ranger" were the best approaches to things like that.

JDF was also the youngest of the cast at the time, which has probably added to his longevity.

MMPR 'cause it started it all, and as a kid it was just fantastic.
PRiS, it practically was the Seires finale to Power Ranger in my book. C2D, best episodes ever.

i supposed so, but since it's in the Americanized stuff, it should be okay. right?

the best series for me would be the original MMPR, followed by Zeo, and In Space after that.

definitely Wild Force
Partly because of the Mecha/equipment (those thingies look really really great) and partly because of Zen-Aku/Master Org. While Zen-Aku is a little bit more on the generic side (but still quite awesome) Master Org has to be the greatest PR-villain ever.
Second would be Lost Galaxy and third Ninja Storm (I don't know why but I love Ninja Storm).

Well, it does say "To keep this kind of stuff off the regular forums" right on the front. It'd be false advertising to get rid of this.

I like MMPR because of the nostalgia, although looking back on it now, I can see it was kind of scrambling for ratings near the end. With sergeant chimps, amnesia plots, and other zany shenanigans, I can't watch the tail end of the series with a straight face.

I think SPD is my favorite now. I like how they linked it to Time Force (my other favorite), although It's too bad they had to kill off Wes for it. But someone needs to tell Disney to lay off the wire-fu. Not everyone has to spin 16 times before they hit the ground. Cheapens the effect.

Last I checked SPD wasnt linked with Time Force, 'cause Sky's dad wasnt Wes contrary to popular belief. They just recycled the Timeforce Costume just like they recycled the Space costumes for A squad.
