Why Power Rangers Super Megaforce doesn't work

So I was going to post another round of Rider Battle last week (and the week before...) when a certain show appeared on my radar. Now I can get annoyed with certain shows but for Power Rangers Super Megaforce, I was angry. Mostly because ...

 
 
 

Rider Battle: Shattered

Normally this is the part where I say something exciting and intriguing. But after watching this week's episodes of Ryuki and Dragon Knight, I can't really do that. Not that the episodes are bad, they're not. It's just some really, reall...

Rider Battle: Time Stamp

So since I had work today, Rider Battle took a slight delay. Just to give you an idea I'm going to put up time stamps when I wrote each segment.  That out of the way let's see how Dragon Knight and Ryuki fight it out this week on Rider ...

 
 
 

Rider Battle: TORQUE!!!

Super Hero War Zzzz + Future Roster

I like many others watched Super Hero Wars/Taisen. A Kamen Rider/Super Sentai crossover film? Ok I'm down. While I wasn't bored, I wasn't impressed either. My thoughts are pretty much in line with Sal's when he reviewed it his Superhero T...

About Sideshowone of us since 2:34 AM on 07.22.2012

Hi, I'm Sideshow.
And if it's tokusatsu and anime,
I know where to go!

Born of Dragon Ball Z and Pokemon.
Cultured by Monkey and Power Rangers.
Then corrupted by a shed load of anime.
And finally arose from the likes of Kamen Rider, Super Sentai and Garo.

I'm here to share my obsession of tokusatsu and just a pinch of anime.

Process to becoming obsessed with tokusatsu shows:

Power Ranger => uses stock footage of Sentai => Wiki search for Super Sentai => Gokaiger, Kamen Rider W, Garo

...or something like that. :/
