Product Description

Five brave teens set out on an exciting global treasure hunt to track down five long-lost jewels from the Corona Aurora, Crown of the Gods. They must decode mind-crunching puzzles, embark on mythical adventures and overcome spectacular battles or Dark Forces will wear the Crown and evil will be unstoppable. The Entire universe’s fate rests in the hands of Power Rangers: Operation Overdrive.

Operation Overdrive, the 13th spin-off series in the venerable Power Rangers franchise, retains the key elements that keep kids coming back to the show--elaborate battles between robots and monsters--with a serial-style spin involving the retrieval of jewels for an all-powerful object. Adventurer and scientist Andrew Hartford's discovery of the Corona Aurora, a crown that bestows unlimited power upon its possessor, attracts the attention of two warring brothers--the ice creature Flurious and Moltor, a fire demon--who dispatch their hideous minions after its new owner. In response, Hartford assembles a team of five teens from various background (including his own son) and reworks their DNA to transform them into Power Rangers, who seek out the five missing jewels that active the crown's powers. The first six episodes of the series (including the two-part opener, "Kick It Into Overdrive") cover the discovery of the crown, the assembling of the Rangers, and the search for the first jewel, which brings them to Atlantis ("The Underwater World") and in contact with the pirate Brownbeard, who seeks a valuable bauble as well. As with all Power Rangers series, the action is the core of the show, and it's plentiful but never particularly violent (the fighting is strictly Zord-on-Zord), and the elaborate array of exploratory vehicles operated by the Rangers will delight any younger viewer who's just discovered the particular magic of heavy equipment. The single DVD includes a bio on Red Ranger Mack Hartford (played by James MacLurcan), and a multiple choice trivia quiz tricked out as a Ranger Reserve Training Course. -- Paul Gaita

For those of you who may not have heard yet, "Power Rangers: Operation Overdrive" will be the first Power Rangers series ever to have a full season DVD release across a total of five volumes. Many fans have written to Disney's marketing department complaining about the lack of full season releases in the past, and these complaints have been cited by Disney as a reason for doing a full season's worth of volumes.

That being said, the first (out of five) volume does not fail to deliver episodes on par with what fans and casual viewers of the show alike have come to expect. For the older fans, each episode has the original opening credits sequence, episode with chapter stops where commercials were, and end credits with no alterations to them. Okay, maybe I should say "minor alterations" to some of them to correct a typo in the "Adapted from" section, but this has also been corrected on episodes currently being broadcast. The quality of the DVD Transfer is on par with Power Rangers S.P.D. which up until now, has been considered the best set of five volumes to date, coming closest to a full DVD release.

For casual viewers and young fans there's a nice set of Ranger Bios which are a nice little extra, and the first level of an interactive DVD game which children will probably enjoy; future levels will be added to future discs.

Now for the few problems I have with this release. You'll notice I gave the disc four instead of five stars. This is because of the glaring typo on the episode title for the series premiere, "Kick Into Overdrive," which has been incorrectly marked on the packaging and menus as "Kick IT Into Overdrive," while this may seem like nothing, I would hope that an episode such as a premiere would be given extra scrutiny to avoid this type of mistake.
