The Good: Every episode of the Megaforce incarnation of Power Rangers is very much in the style of the original Mighty Morphin seasons, which isn't a bad thing...for the most part. In these episodes, the Rangers use more than just brute force to defeat their enemies, though their Zords and blasters still come into play a lot. The action is enthralling, and the special effects are fun, if not blockbuster movie quality. As usual for this series, a lack of sexual content and profanity was a bonus.
The Bad: As much as I loved the action, I did think it was a bit brutal at times, especially for a show that will likely be seen by kids as young as five or six. Also, I was rather disgusted by a scene where a monster passes gas. A regular annoyance with this season is that the teenagers dress like cartoon characters; every time you see them in "unmorphed" form, they're wearing the same clothes. Even if they wear their Ranger colors every time, they don't have to wear the same outfits.
- Sex: None. 5/5
- Nudity: Girl in short shorts. 4/5
- Language: Occasional usage of euphemisms, i.e., "Gosh darn it!" and name-calling. 4/5
- Violence: Though not bloody or graphic, the violence is rather intense, and every episode ends with the villain--a monster of sorts--being killed. 2/5
- Drugs: None. 5/5
- Frightening/Intense Scenes: The monsters are a bit scary-looking, and their voices are creepy, too. 3/5
- Other: A monster passes gas. 4/5
