So with how bad most of the Neo-Saban era has been (sans Dino Charge) for me and many others, when we heard Hasbro bought the rights to the franchise from Saban, we were all hoping we would see improvement. A lot of great shows have come from Hasbro such as Transformers Prime, G.I. Joe Renegades, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Littlest Pet Shop, and various others, and considering how good the action shows especially have been, I knew better could be done, but I also saw a lot of the same crew from Ninja Steel (which for me and it's Super half is the worst series of Power Rangers I have watched) would still be on board, so I was worried. Thankfully, the first 4 episodes I have seen so far have put those worries to rest.
The plots and goals are well thought out, things are not written as childishly as I have seen in Neo-Saban seasons, I'm seeing actual citizens in danger, acting while not top notch (this is Power Rangers after all) is decent enough, and the characters are pretty likable.
Within the first 4 episodes and what I saw would be happening, I had some concerns like rangers not being allowed to be a couple which considering we've seen ranger couples before, I was hoping this was a workplace rule within Grid Battleforce since that I can understand, and thankfully episode 4 proved it was. I was worried on the plot of choosing a leader in episode 2 when I read that would be the case, but considering two of the rangers were not even chosen but got caught up into the war and choose to stay on, it's understandable that there could be issues on knowing who is right to lead in this case over just Red automatically being the leader. And while of course, we know Devon being the red ranger would be the leader, it was a well written story of egos clashing and one member focusing on the main goal of protecting people. In the same episode, I also like that quirks of the rangers from the Go-Busters sentai we re-written here to be a side effect of the animal DNA fusion which considering all three rangers have some massive extreme to them with these, I think to take these issues more seriously was a good idea.
If I have anything to still wonder about, I want to know what created the Evox virus and I am hoping an explanation comes up down the road if at all (We got one for Venjix in RPM and it was important, so I would like one here as well). We of course are told this takes place in the future in promotional material, but exactly how far in the future since a lot of tech I see such as smart phones, vehicles, and more seem to still be pretty modern, and considering SPD, shouldn't we see more alien life living with humans as well at this point since we are near the year SPD officially took place? I'm doubting the SPD thing will be addressed, but we'll see.
If I also have one mixed feeling in terms of episodes, the 3rd episode was pretty standard Power Rangers environmental fare, but at least unlike some in the Neo-Saban era, it was well written and well thought out by enough to make an okay filler episode. Now I know due to how Power Rangers work and with Saban and some of his crew still being around and having involvement, stuff like this is still going to be included, but as long as these episodes have decently thought out writing like this one did, I can live with it, and I know there will likely be some bad episodes here and there.
With all this said, I'm glad Power Rangers Beast Morphers has been fun to watch and I hope to keep seeing more quality as the series continues. Also, for one more wish, I am REALLY hoping Hasbro does not put SUPER into the season season of Beast Morphers, though rumors and possible sources are showing that thankfully may be the case and they will stop with Saban's horrible idea of making the titles goofier and stupider each time the second half of a show comes up.
So with that said, as always, till next time, everyone!
