This DVD will include the first 3 episodes of DinoThunder and the last 2 episodes of Power Rangers Ninja Storm.
Aside from that, Power Rangers enters it's twleth (and so far, greatest) season with "Day of the Dino", a two-part epic accompanied by the two-part finale of the previous season Ninja Storm.
Establishing the main plot arcs almost immediatly with a thrilling battle between veteran Ranger Tommy Oliver and the forces of Mesegog on a rapidly sinking Island, to the introduction of Connor, Kira, and Ethan, three distinctly different people who are united form a Ranger team by fate to tame the Bio-Zords unleashed on the city by Mesegog.
The action is non-stop, the comedy is brilliantly executed ("Don't call me dude""-Tommy) references to the original seasons (Cassidy talks about Angel Grove at one point) and the episode provides the audience with more mysteries and chilling new adversaries (Mesegog is the finest P.R villain since Ransik from Time Force and Prince Gasket from Zeo)
So don't take dissapointment and MMPR preference overtake your own choices, purchase this DVD and realise that Power Rangers will continue because of seasons such as this
In "Day of the Dino Part I" a High School science teacher, Dr. Tommy Oliver begins life anew after his work with a paleontologist Dr. Anton Mercer goes horribly wry. When a robotic T-Rex attacks Dr. Oliver and three misfit students fall into a sink-hole nearby on a trip to a museum, Dr. Oliver must recruit them to become Power Rangers. This is easily one of my favorite series premiers.
In "Day of the Dino Part II" the three Teens, Connor, Ethan, and Kira receive their Ranger powers to battle the evil Mesogog who revives his BioZords, mechanical Dinosaurs that wreck havoc on the city of Reefside, it's up to the Power Rangers to tame the BioZords and turn them good again. There's a lot of action in this episode, again one of my favorites.
"Wave Goodbye" is about Connor and his passion for Soccer vs. being a Power Ranger, when faced with a major decision, Connor questions being a Ranger. This was a rather dull episode in my opinion.
"Legacy of Power" is the show's 500th episode. Here, Dr. Tommy Oliver is abducted by Mesogog and three very worried Power Rangers return to their base, under Dr. Oliver's home where they discover a video diary of his past adventures as a Power Ranger; they also learn of every Power Ranger team before them. All this was is a glorified clip show, but a very good one at that.
"Back in Black" picks up directly where "Legacy of Power" left off.Read more ›
497-498. Day of the Dino: Former Veteran Power Ranger Tommy Oliver takes a teaching job at the city of Reefside years after escaping from an ordeal with the evil reptilian monster Mesogog, and is assigned to look after three detention students: Conner McKnight (soccer star), Ethan James(hi-tech prankster) and Kira Ford (singer). During a trip to the museum, the trio stumbles upon a secret hideaway and find the magical Dino Gems. Kira rejects her Gem soon after, only to be abducted by Mesogog's forces. This is a great start to the season. A
499. Wave Goodbye: Conner resigns his position as the Red Ranger when his Ranger duties interfere with his dreams of being a soccer star and cause him to miss an important try-out. However, he reconsiders after saving a little girl from harm and defeating Mesogog's Birdbrain mutation with a little help from his fellow Rangers and the Raptor Riders given to the Rangers by Tommy. Meanwhile, Mesogog kidnaps Tommy to force him to unleash the power from within a stone. Not as good as the other episodes on the DVD, but not bad. B
There's also the 2 bonus Ninja Storm episodes.
495-496. Storm Before The Calm: The Rangers are selected to showcase their respective talents in the US Action Games. Meanwhile, Lothor prepares the final stages of a scheme set in motion by destiny itself, as he seeks to unleash the evils within The Abyss of Evil, hidden beneath the site of the Action Games. The Rangers face their greatest challenge. This is an excellent season finale. I shall definitely check out the whole season on the boxset with seasons 8-12. A+
Not a bad buy for a penny plus shipping & handling.
