Uchu Sentai Kyuranger – Episode 44 Review

I love that this episode started with a message from the alien pop star guy, confirming that there is some sort of organised galactic resistance going in the background. I’d have hoped to see an episode based around this resistance coming together, Star Wars Rebels style, but that’s not really a priority of this show. Still, I’m glad we got something, even if it was a little too ‘tell’ rather than ‘show’. If nothing else, a Star Wars Rebels style episode about the rebellion coming together would have been moreRead More

Uchu Sentai Kyuranger – Episode 43 Review

The opening of this episode was pretty damn slick, from some unmorphed fighting to almost a full-team henshin to the logo followed by a really cool shot of the rangers silhouetted in their colours. It really feels like we’re in endgame territory now. The fight with Aslan had some good choreography, which was helped a lot by his suit being something the actor could actually fight well in instead of being a bulky monster costume. That said, I wish there was a little bit more to Lucky’s dad turning goodRead More


Uchu Sentai Kyuranger – Episode 42 Review

This episode mainly revolved about Lucky’s big trolley problem: his father or the universe? Unfortunately there was never any real tension in this question because it was being asked in an episode of Super Sentai, a show that routinely solves trolley problems with “Why not both?” The thing is, I’m not entirely convinced that’s a bad thing. It’s bad in the sense that conflict is at the heart of all stories so a story without conflict is kinda boring, but at the same time Super Sentai‘s ability to let theRead More
