That's Just Wrong.

Geekery alert:

Sick at home, working on a test here. The Mystic Force Power-Rangers show is on for background noise.

Green Wizzerd finally gets his special new spell, "Strong as a Tree" - which makes him grow hugely muscled.


Well, not quite. They don't touch his LEGS. The upper body inflates, but without legs, he just looks like a kid wearing a Superman Inflatable Muscle Suit.

You know, I gave Mystic Force a chance. I really did. But I just couldn't keep watching it. After SPD, I realized that of all the bad things in your typical Power Rangers Sabanization, the one I really couldn't stand, even over the cheesy sidekick comic relief, was the secret identities.

Not just that the kids HAD the secret IDs. Not just the "grab a Lois Lane plot from anywhere in the 1950s and rip it off" aspects of hiding the IDs. But the total banality of those identities. Making Saved By The Bell look like high art. They're a 50 year old's view of what a 7 year old thinks must be cool about being 16. Gaaah. SPD wasn't the only "no secret ID" season, but it's the first one I seriously paid attention to...and the contrast with Mystic Force is jarring.

Agreed, the contrast makes my head bleed.
