"Power Rangers RPM Vol. 1: Start Your Engines" is must-own item for any Power Rangers fan, or any fan of the Sci-Fi/Dystopia genre. In the premiere, we're introduced to a barren and desolate Earth, one where a sentient computer virus has succeeded at taking over the entire planet with the exception of the domed city of Corinth. If the goal of every previous Power Rangers team was to prevent "the end of the world," then the goal of this team is to "survive the end of the world." RPM takes the idea behind Power Rangers and turns it on its head, creating one of the most memorable and unique seasons to date. It should be noted however, that most of the show takes place inside of Corinth's dome, rather than outside where radiation and villains rule. Dillon (portrayed by Dan Ewing) and Ziggy (portrayed by Milo Cawthorne) Grover are easily two of the shows most likable characters, and fans of all ages will quickly grow to like them.

Because Power Rangers RPM is broadcast only on ABC Kids, many people are unable to view it for a variety of reasons--it's noon time-slot on Saturdays doesn't help things either, which again, makes this a must-own for many fans.

From a technical standpoint, this disc is almost perfect. The episodes have the opening credits, "dips to black" where the commercials would be, and for most episodes, full ending credits. The reason that I say this disc is almost perfect is because the fifth and final episode on the disc, "Handshake," does not have full ending credits. Instead, the credits to "Handshake" are shown "ABC Kids style," that is, they're rolled over the end of the episode itself. Aside from this obnoxious flaw, in the fifth episode, the Disc is perfect, with excellent picture and sound quality.

All in all, this DVD is highly recommended to Power Rangers fans both young and old.

Not for several years have I seen a Power Rangers series worth dragging in non-fans for. This is hardcore post-apocalyptic sci-fi wrapped in spandex and made child-safe without pandering to that audience.

I won't waste time going into story details laid out in the synopsis except to say this is a real break in style from even pre-Kalish PR. This show does not deserve to be shown at 6:30 AM or left off the schedule like it is in some markets. So you owe it to yourself to buy this DVD. Support what may be the curtain call for Power Rangers.

The catches? No special features at all. Nothing. And as a previous reviewer mentioned, we got the ABC Kids version of the credits for Handshake. But hey, that's life.

The mind spins with thoughts on Power Rangers RPM. For one, its the final new series of the Power Rangers franchise for the foreseeable future; maybe that's for the best because they set the bar almost unreachably high in this one.
Whether it was for the fans, whether it was just a new style of making the show - the RPM year is the first since 'Dino Thunder' that I have felt eager to watch. Taking influences from everywhere - from sci-fi, like Terminator, the world created is one post-judgment day where only a shielded city survives.
It seems the showmakers are big 'Lost' fans - RPM is dressed up a lot like it in style [not counting the god awful theme tune] with character origin flashbacks planted throughout the opening run of episodes, throwaway lines throughout every ep building up the mythology subtly and in a way only older fans will notice. Each episode even ends on a teasing cliffhanger before the text title card 'Power Rangers RPM' flashes across the screen like it does in Lost.

Repeated viewing of the series throws up all the (potentially purposeful) references to previous versions of the show; the zords are very much the spirit of the 'Zeo' zords dressed up like the 'Turbo' ones. Fans of the 'In Space' year will find a similar storyline to Astronoma/Karone in Tenaya 7. Storylines involving the city of Corinth is not unlike the ones based in the 'Lost Galaxy.'

But everything is just done so much better than before - the acting, stunts and writing are top notch. Being 'self-aware' like the beginnings of 'Ninja Storm' runs throughout the series. The start of one episode sees the Rangers asking such questions as whether they really need to call out a Morphing call and what's the deal with the big explosions behind them everytime they morph?

In sum, RPM is a great finish to the show's epic run, and one fans should feel proud of.

This DVD was delivered on time- about the middle of the 'expected delivery' dates. It was a good value for the price, and even with shipping, it was MUCH cheaper than going to a store. The only thing of note was that since I bought this from a library, there were library stickers on the front, back, and spine of the DVD.
