MY THOUGHTS

I had heard of this cartoon but I don't think I have ever watched it. I am a child at heart so I decided to review this one.

I was pleasantly surprised because I liked this and I thought it was well done. The cartoon is well made and the voice acting fantastic.  I think I watch this for hours on end on the first day I got it. Very entertaining and not annoying at all like some other cartoons I have seen. 

I highly recommend.

I give this 4 out of 5

Deep in space, they discover the Astro Megaship, the mobile base of operations for Andros, a Power Ranger who grew up on the distant space colony of KO-35. Joining forces, they draw power from their new Astro Morphers to take their fight against evil anywhere necessary and to find Zordon before it’s too late. Fighting a union of all their past villains, led by the monstrous Dark Specter and his trusted captain Astronema, the Rangers are in for the biggest fight the universe has ever seen!

MY THOUGHTS

I have review other DVDs of both these shows before and these are just like the others.  The story is cheesy and acting not all that great but there is a lot of action,  it is interesting, entertaining  and I know children love it.

I give this 3 out of 5

Both of these are now available in stores
