Not much has changed since this season came on the air back in 2011. There's like nothing spectacular about this season at all. The only things that are positive about Power Rangers Samurai are Mike's character, Rick Mendina as Deker, Paul Schrier returning as Bulk and Grant Macfarland as Daisuke in the episode, "The Tengen Gate". But other than that, I don't think that Samurai is really that good of a season. It's just kind of dull, in my opinion. But, if you liked it, fine. Whatever. Me?! I am never gonna bother rethinking about this season again, I am just gonna forget about it. Sorry.
But what do you guys think about Power Rangers Samurai as a season? Good or not?
I enjoyed Samurai. Might be in the minority but I had fun with this season. Cool story, decent actors imo, okay to just plain boss characters, and a decent anericanization of a foreign concept. Same thing with Super Samurai with Serrator added on to make that season even more awesome. Plus, the four part finale from The Tengen Gate to The Ultimate Duel was well paced, action packed, emotional for Daiyu and Deker, and fun.
If you're not going to bother rethinking about this series and just forget about it why are you making a thread for it and Super Samurai?
Because, there are other people out there who might actually this and Super Samurai for what they are, even if I am not a fan of these two particular seasons. I can't just keep going around and ruining the experiences for others who might actually be interested in them. I am not some whiny, butt-hurt purist fanboy or whatever. I am just a guy who trying to give out my opinion about the seasons, but I don't have to be a fan of them. All I can do is just respect the fact that Samurai and Super Samurai are as much part of this established history of Power Rangers as any othe season that came before them and that there are others that might enjoy them for what they are and let their opinions speak for themselves. That is what it means to be a human being, and as a fan, in my opinion. Otherwise, we're just setting really bad examples like Doug Walker (The Nostalgia Critic) did in his older reviews thinking that our opinons only matters and no one else's do. We're not gods. We're just like everyone else. Okay?! That's all I gotta say.

My problem with this is jt wanting a total copy paste sentai season. Without making enough changes to fit us audience the writing and acting suffered from this and season was a real dull for me. And reading the story editor articles from old board you can really see jt really was stupid.

To me the issue is this. We know jt is a lover of the dental shows. We have heard many stories he wanted x show to just be a copy paste of the sentai. In the past that didn't happen cause jt wasn't only guy in charge. Other folks kept him in check and we saw the added original stuff that makes x shows there own thing. But when we got jt in charge by himself and not being kept in check he just lousy copy paste show and didn't make enough changes to make it work for western fans.

Was there any footage of an explosion behind the 6 rangers posing when they defeat a monster or do a roll call, or was that footage from the Sentai? I'm asking because Kadam's Edits has footage like this in his old 3rd Samurai opening and I want to use the footage for my 3rd Fan opening to Samurai:
What do you guys think the chances of Hasbro adapting Samurai and Super Samurai into an actual movie? And would you be interested in seeing it with an actual Asian-American actor playing the role of "Jayden" Shiba?
