Default PR Samurai Episode 1 Discussion "No I In Team"

I wasn't overly impressed with this episode. It didn't jive well as a first episode for me. Unless they really did air the sneak peak out of order.

I don't mind them taking PR back to its pure form. But the Rangers don't seem to stand out. The acting felt like the worst we have had in quite some seasons. Jayden seems interesting but most of the Rangers really don't stand out.The whole plot with Mike and his friends was too rushed.

The villains are too generic and are hurt by the fact that there is no American Villain. We didn't get a clear definition of who they are. "Prelude to A Storm" this is not.

I liked the morphing sequence and the background music. The new weapons are cool. The zords seemed fine. I think they did a good job with keeping the action fast pace. The Bulk and Spike thing was good. But had no real set up.

But overall, I think it was a medicore episode. And if it really is the actual first episode, it has to be one of the weaker PR premieres. Possibly the worst.

I'm fine with Power Rangers being a kids show and being corny at the right times. I know they have to target the children's audience. But I don't see how the Samurai Ranger's will connect to kids if things don't improve. Ninja Storm had memorable characters that stood out. Same for DinoThunder. SPD had great characters too. And those we're the more successful PR seasons to date. But that said its only the first episode and we have plenty of episodes to go.

I wanted to see what Bulk looked like now.

He was the best part of the episode for the fact that he has gone bald.

As for Episode 1, this is Episode 1 but filmed as Episode 3.

Eh I'd don't know as premiere yeah it left a lot to be desired in terms of the story but as a sneak peek filler it I thought it was good.

I saw the first episode. I thought that I missed a few episodes of Samurai. when I learn that Bulk was going to be in the show, I thought we'll se an older and wiser Bulk. Bulk may be older, but he's not wiser.

I actually think he's gotten dumber and less graceful.
