    Nice choice of Avatar. BTW: I am the Stig because I own a shirt that says so.

    Man, that stuff is so messed up now. I didnt really ever get into Power Rangers, cause it kinda sucked. But now its even worse. They try to make a plot around 5 colored super heroes. Its not cool anymore.

    Dont be a hater. Power Rangers is still just as good as it was 10 years ago. Best kids show ever. Power Rangers isnt shown as much on TV now as it used to be, though. Kids these days have to watch these crappy shows with no super heroes.

    I like how their story lines are like a cryptic message that you have to decode
