The Top ten BEST seasons of Power Rangers

(A Hand pulling a card designed by Stevie Swigart with the statistics of James Faraci The Last Of The Americans while putting it into the Megaforce Morpher from the 0:00-0:03 mark from the theme from the final season of American Gladiators original run. 0:04 mark from the theme from the final season of American Gladiators shows James Faraci morphing into James Faraci The Last Of The Americans with his Black Tee-Shirt with the American flag on it, Blue Jeans and Tan Work boots until 0:07 mark from the theme from the final season of American Gladiators original run as scene cuts to James stocking up on his arsenal from the Classic Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers Morpher, a bandoleer stocked up with Sonic Screwdrivers, Ammunition for a 303 British Rifle and said rifle, The Ring Of Aeon, The Gem From the Gauntlet Malachite’s Hand, Emmalina’s amulet and the Sword Of Caliverti from 0:08-0:15 mark from the theme from the final season of American Gladiators. 0:15-0:29 mark from the theme from the final season of American Gladiators original run shows James leaping and running through moments from the 2014 calendar year of his reviews ranging from James getting hit with an uppercut by Trina Mason to James punching Dr. Plotsz, to Paulo & Rebecca Fonseca saying Groovy, to James and Rowdy running into the Happy Madison crowd, to James’ eyes turning white with blue streaks of lightning coming out of them, to James taking on the wicked then culminating in the moment when Lea Michele reveals herself to be a vampire and zooming into James’ screaming mouth until 0:30 mark from the theme from the final season of American Gladiators shows when James takes a flying leap from the darkness then cuts to every actor who played a Power Ranger looking at the front until 0:36 mark from the theme from the final season of American Gladiators original run when James lands on top of the slab while doing a heroic pose with Paulo Fonseca, John & Mike Santos and Rebecca Fonseca, Renee Miller and Eric Kurtzke on his left doing their own heroic poses on a black background the 0:36-end mark from the theme from the final season of American Gladiators original run play as the camera moves to the overhead view with the words “The Last Of The Americans” are seen before cutting to James running into the main lobby of his office building grabbing everything that isn't nailed down to barricade the front door and windows before James bends over and takes several heavy breaths before regaining his composure)

TLOTA: I'm James Faraci The Last Of The Americans and the views that I'm about to express...(A loud earth shaking thud shakes everything including James off balance for a half a second) MIGHT BE MY LAST! (Another Ground shaking thud shakes everything again before cutting to the outside of James' Office Building to see it is being dwarfed by the Dragonzord before Zooming to the top of The Head to see Jason David Frank)

Jason David Frank:  Dragonzord! Attack again! (Jason plays the Dragon Dagger's second song to arm the missiles before cutting to see James being thrown to the floor from the attack from the Missiles. before cutting to the stock footage of the Dragonzord's hand launching the missiles then cutting to James shaking in his main lobby then cutting to the door that leads to the backroom where Paulo & Rebecca Fonseca, John & Mike Santos, Renee Miller & Eric Kurtzke enter)

John Santos: What the hell is going on around here?

TLOTA: It's Jason David Frank! Someone must've slipped something into his water because he's after me!

Mike Santos: Oh gee I wonder if it was the fact you did a countdown of the ten WORST seasons of Power Rangers?

TLOTA: Look it doesn't matter,  the rest of you guys find a way hold him off while I try to do the countdown of the Best seasons of Power Rangers.

ORAC (Audio only): He has reinforcements coming.

Paulo: Well, what are you going to do?

TLOTA: Lower the shields and Open the door. (Cut to The Original, Thunder, Ninja and Shogun Megazords standing outside as The door to James' office building opens as Jason David Frank see the shield being lowered from the top of the Dragonzord.)

Jason David Frank: He's lowering his defenses, let's go Rangers! (Cut to Austin St. John, Walter Jones & David Yost inside the cockpit of the original Megazord.)

Austin St. John:  We read you loud and clear!

Walter Jones: Uh maybe it's me but isn't this overkill, I mean this "Last Of The Americans" guy said he was a fan.

David Yost: Walter, He had recasted you with Wolfie von Sharkboy from The Twilight Saga.

Walter Jones: He's gonna get a couple of Mastodon tusks shoved up his ass!

Austin: Amy, You and Karan ready to go? (Cut to see Amy Jo Johnson and Karan Ashley in the cockpit of the Thunder Megazord)

Karan Ashley: We're ready!

Amy Jo Johnson: Steve, John, Catherine you ready. (Cut to Steve Cardenas and Johnny Yong Bosch in the cockpit of the Ninja Megazord)

Steve Cardenas: We're on our way.

Johnny Yong Bosch: Oh he'll be sorry he crossed us. (Cut to Catherine in the Shogun Megazord cockpit)

Catherine Sutherland: I have to ask, is this insane?(Cut to Steve Cardenas and Johnny Yong Bosch in the cockpit of the Ninja Megazord)

Steve Cardenas: Catherine, the guy is calling himself "The Last Of The Americans" trust us, putting him down like Old Yeller is for the greater good. (Cut to Catherine in the Shogun Megazord cockpit)

Catherine Sutherland: You have a point. (Cut to Jason David Frank on the top of the Dragonzord)

Jason David Frank: What are we waiting for, LET'S GO! (Cut to see everyone jump off their respective Zords/Megazords before cutting to see everyone walk into James' Main lobby and then cut to see the door to the back room start to close.)

Jason David Frank: This way!

Everyone else (In near unison): Right. (Everyone runs into the back room to see a wall filled with weapons, props and a lot of tables with costumes and everything else when Austin takes the Power sword and tosses it a mere centimeter away from James' nose and James getting nicked in the chin as in the total silence a single drop of blood hits the floor as Austin shouts out "OVER THERE!" and they all encircle around him.)

Jason David Frank: Anything you'd like to say? (James tries to open his mouth when a loud "We've got a few words" from John Santos is heard as John Santos, Mike Santos, Eric Kurtzke, Renee Miller, Paulo and Rebecca Fonseca drop from the sky)

John Santos & Paulo Fonseca (In Unison):  TROOPER TRANSFORM! (Cut to see John's, Mike's and Rebecca's right hand holding a pendant and shouting "WE ARE! V.R.!" As the trio transform into the V.R. Troopers from season one then cut to Paulo, Renee & Eric doing the same except using the Ryan Steele suit from season 2 of V.R. Troopers)

John Santos: Okay let's see which one of us had it better!

TLOTA: Time out! Guys nice try in keeping it in the Sabanverse but let's stay focused on "Power Rangers" okay? Could you guys try again? (Cut to everyone on Team "The Last Of The Americans" walking off screen before cutting to James and the Power Rangers)


TLOTA: And you guys guess what, I've never said flat out "I HATE THE POWER RANGERS" (Cut to clips of Power Rangers while James does a voiceover.)

TLOTA (Voiceover): I mean yeah technically there was a season or two that I really disliked, (Cut to the "Power Rangers Operation Overdrive" logo) One I flat out rooted for everyone involved on both sides to suffer defeat. But for the most part the Power Rangers have been a part of my life for as long as I recall as a matter of fact I think they belong with the top Echelon of Superheroes like all the heroes in both the DC & Marvel Universe. Heck even though so many people have their own way of counting down what they think are the Top ten seasons and I have my way. (Cut to James and everyone else in the backroom)

TLOTA: And for the sake of argument, I'm throwing in my two Power Coins to give you what and how I rank the top ten seasons.

Jason David Frank: Well we thought about it but, we've decided not to give you a chance to disrespect Power Rangers fans any more. Kiss your backside goodbye!

Paulo (Audio): Think again! (Cut to see team "The Last Of The Americans")

Rebecca: I think we've got it right this time. There was a crossover so this counts. (Cut to James)

TLOTA: With who? (Cut to Paulo, Rebecca & Eric shouting "Beetle Bonders, Beetle blast!" while John, Mike & Renee shout out "Data Bonders, Input Keys Beetle blast!" as they transform into their respective Beetleborgs from their seasons.)

Mike Santos: Now let's do this.

TLOTA: Okay, that was a comic, it's continuity is in question, TRY AGAIN! Meanwhile you guys can't kill me, I'm not even in front of you. (Cut to Jason David Frank and his team)

Catherine Sutherland (Audio only): Excuse me! (Tries to get next to Jason David Frank)

Catherine Sutherland: How can you say that, you're right in front of...(Cut to an empty space where James was as Catherine says "He disappeared!" before everyone looks around and David Yost asks "Where did he go?" before James drops down over the door holding a Sonic Screwdriver)

TLOTA: ORAC! DELTA LEVEL DEFENSE! (A blast of energy renders them unconscious as James tries to make a b-line to his brother in Law's car.)

TLOTA (Audio only): I hope Adam doesn't mind me having no choice but to pretend I'm in the "Fast and Furious" franchise with his car. (Just as James steps outside Nakia Burrise comes from behind James and wraps the chain from her nun chucks around James' throat.)

Nakia: Heyaaa! Guess who's gonna go bye bye! (The chain on the nun chucks gets tightened as Nakia gets a Vulcan Nerve Pinch as Eric dressed as Spock is behind them)

TLOTA (Hoarse): Eric! (Cut to Eric)

Eric Kurtzke: While it was illogical to dress like this you need to give yourself a chance to do your top ten. (Cut to James)

TLOTA (Hoarse) Thanks, this is the Top Ten Best Power Rangers seasons.
  (Cut to clips of Power Rangers as Ron Waserman's "Go Go Power Rangers" instrumental from "Power Rangers Redux" plays in the background of a beautiful blue sky as a Lightning bolt lands in the center of the sky as the title "The Top Ten BEST seasons of Power Rangers" is seen in front of the lightning bolt after the title disappears James does a voice over and the number ten appears)


TLOTA (Voiceover): Number Ten

10) "Power Rangers Mystic Force" (Cut to clips while James doing a voiceover of the clips)

TLOTA (Voiceover): This is what fans would consider the season of Power Rangers which combined either the "Harry Potter" or "Lord Of The Rings" universe with it. But on it's own this season was epically amazing. It felt as much as it was grounded in the real world, there was a sense of Mysticism in this season with the Rangers being able to invoke special abilities through spells and potions. It felt like the original series in which there was a magic vs science theme that was shown in a way the original series didn't neither as evil or good but which one could be used better for a situation. Briarwood was amazing to look at and I loved how every character even the most minute character in the cast had a moment in the season to show their worth. In addition there was such a gigantic foreshadowing in the serialization like it was building up to something fantastic that made every episode feel like if you missed one episode, you'd be thrown off by what was going on in a future episode, While there were signs that this could've been one of the worst, it is saved by a twist in the finale that if I told you would ruin the entire thing. If you haven't seen it, then you may have missed out on a great season.

(Cut to the beautiful blue sky as Ron Waserman's "Go Go Power Rangers" instrumental from "Power Rangers Redux" plays as a Lightning bolt lands in the center of the sky as James does a voice overand the number nine appears)

TLOTA (Voiceover): Number Nine

9) "Power Rangers Dino Thunder" (Cut to clips while James doing a voiceover of the clips)

TLOTA (Voiceover): Dino Thunder was the breath of reassurance to Power Rangers fan that Ninja Storm wasn't. Having Tommy Oliver, one of the original Rangers back was a good thing especially since it got younger audiences into the Classic Saban Era and older audiences wanted to see what Tommy was up to. (Cut to James physically driving at 65 MPH down Route 17 heading down to the Palisades Parkway Plaza)
TLOTA: Keep in mind Tommy was an investing his time into being a NASCAR Driver in "Power Rangers Turbo". So how did he earn a Doctorate in paleontology and get a teaching license nearly ten years since we last saw him as a Regular on Power Rangers? (An explosion rocks the road as James looks in his side view Mirror) YOU HAVE GOT TO BE FREAKING KIDDING ME! (Cut to a familiar looking Blue Jeep with Blake Foster behind the wheel)
Blake Foster: HEEEEERE'S JUSTIN! (The scene cuts to see James in his brother in law's car being chased by Storm Chaser and Lightning Cruiser being piloted by Selwyn Ward! as the scene cuts to James)
TLOTA: OH Adam is going to have my backside if this thing looks like it just came out of a Demolition Derby. (Cut to a first person perspective as he eyes the Palisades Parkway Plaza parking lot and makes it there with ease as Storm Chaser & Lightning Cruiser miss the exit by three weeks as scene cuts to Blake Foster screaming and cursing as Selwyn says "Damn it Blake! We missed him!" on the C.B. Radio and scene cuts to James makes into a parking spot.)
TLOTA: Phew, that's a relief. Where was I? Oh yeah "Dino Thunder" (Cut to clips while James doing a voiceover of the clips)
TLOTA (Voiceover): But despite that question never fully being answered, there was a WHOLE Lot to love especially since this series contains possibly the funniest moment in this franchise's history in which Kira, the Yellow Ranger dressed up as Lady Gaga's Sane niece as part of a recording deal. The moment she first shows up in that getup STILL remains to me one of the best if not the funniest moments in Power Rangers history EVER! From probably one of the best seasons ever

(Cut to the beautiful blue sky as Ron Waserman's "Go Go Power Rangers" instrumental from "Power Rangers Redux" plays as a Lightning bolt lands in the center of the sky as James does a voice overand the number eight appears)

TLOTA (Voiceover): Number eight

8) Power Rangers Zeo (Cut to clips while James doing a voiceover of the clips)


TLOTA (Voiceover): Believe it or not this almost made my top ten Worst list but missed it by the fact that there were much better moments in here than there were in Turbo and seeing as how this was the sequel series after the Mighty Morphin era and felt like a great continuation of what the three seasons started. But what nearly put it on the worst list was one moment was the "Dear John" letter Kimberly sent him that wound up doing nothing but put him in a writer forced relationship with Kat and decided to reduce David Yost's role. He was the original Blue Ranger and they just shoved him into the Power Chamber or made him a red herring as to "Who is The Gold Zeo Ranger?" storyline and the fact the final episode and the "Turbo" movie did nothing to give Zeo the proper closure it deserved but despite that it was a great series with a lot of episodes that were amazing and one incredibly funny episode that had most of the character act like the ones in the Classic Universal Monsters Universe that remains one of the most hilariously funny moments in Power Rangers history and I'm sure a fun time was had by all during that episode's production and I felt like I was having fun watching this awesome season.

(Cut to James in the Parking Lot running towards the Mall Entrance when Erin Cahill, Jason Faunt, Michael Copon and Vernon Wells jump cut into frame over the entrance of the mall and James quickly stops)

Vernon Wells: Not so fast, Jimmy Boy!

Erin Cahill: We're here to drop you like a bad habit!

Jason Faunt: Wait, are we missing someone?

(Everything shakes as a Gigantic earthworm rises from the ground and riding on top of it is Daniel Southworth as the epic music from the movie "Dune" plays in the background)

Daniel Southworth: YEEEE-HAAA! I AM THE QUIDDICHQUIZBICMIXYESSPITLICKPICKAPACKOFIRECRACKERSISBOOMBAH! (The Gigantic earthworm starts to go back down and Daniel Southworth screams like a little girl as the worm misses everyone at the entrance of the mall by a millimeter)

Michael Copon: Well, that was pointless.

Vernon Wells: Yes, indeed it was. Wait a tic, Where's James?

(Cut to the bottom level of the inside of the Palisades Parkway Plaza as James runs and trying to evade the Rangers as he runs into the business end of Rescue Bird and the Red Lightspeed Rescue Ranger's V-Lancer and at the other end Sean Cw Johnson)

Sean Cw Johnson: Move and we both go sky high!

TLOTA: Nothing less from Sean Cw Johnson who played Carter Grayson, The Red Lightspeed Rescue Ranger a. k. a. The Chuck Norris of Power Rangers (Cut to Sean smiling as a green screened image of an American flag and fireworks exploding in the background are seen and the "AHCHUCKANORRIS" voice does "THECHUCKANORRISOFAPOWERRANGAAAAARS!" before cutting to see Sean)

Sean Cw Johnson: Wow, that is the best compliment I've ever gotten about my character. The Chuck Norris of Power Rangers. I now regret having to blast you into non existence, I...I truly do.. I (Cut to see no one on the business ends of the Rescue Bird and V-Lancer and Sean screams AW SON OF A BITCH! before cutting to Sean's face) None of the other Power Rangers on the Convention Circuit is ever gonna let me live this down. (Cut to James hiding in an arcade when Melody Perkins has her Astronema staff on his throat)

Melody Perkins: Put your head between your legs and Kiss your ass goodbye James Faraci The Last Of The Americans!

TLOTA: Over there some fan of your work outside of Power Rangers!

Melody Perkins: Where? (James bolts to the nearest elevator as Melody Perkins is not far behind as James forces the doors shut as the doors are hit with an energy blast as he gets in and hits the third floor button and James turns to his left to see Paul Schrier and Jason Narvy on his right and a muzak version of "Bulk & Skull" playing in the background.)

TLOTA: Hey guys.

Paul Schrier & Jason Narvy (In unison): Hey James

TLOTA: You guys wouldn't mind if I did some work here do ya?

Paul Schrier: Nope

Jason Narvy: Not at all.

TLOTA: Thanks for being so nice to me.

Paul Schrier: No problem

Jason Narvy: Always ready to be of help to anyone.

TLOTA: Number seven
(Cut to the beautiful blue sky as Ron Waserman's "Go Go Power Rangers" instrumental from "Power Rangers Redux" plays as a Lightning bolt lands in the center of the sky as James does a voice over and the number seven appears)
7) "Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue" (Cut to clips while James doing a voiceover of the clips)

TLOTA (Voiceover): Lightspeed Rescue was an amazing season with great kick-ass action, great episodes including the two filler episodes around Chad and a Mermaid. Yes, I really liked those episodes. While there were great episodes the biggest thing that made this season was Carter Grayson The Red Lightspeed Rescue Ranger a. k. a. The Chuck Norris Of Power Rangers! (Cut to Sean smiling as a green screened image of an American flag and fireworks exploding in the background are seen and the "AHCHUCKANORRIS" voice does "THECHUCKANORRISOFAPOWERRANGAAAAARS!" before cutting to the clips of Lightspeed Rescue with James doing a voiceover)

TLOTA (Voiceover): He was the anchor that kept the Rangers in the realm of the Bad-Ass land and possibly one of the best ideas this season had was Ryan, The Titanium Ranger. He was THE first North American based Power Ranger because the Sentai this season was based on didn't have a sixth ranger and when he started off in the same way Tommy did starting off as an Evil Ranger but became not just one of the best Rangers but possibly as great as Andros or Jason or Billy ever could be. Yeah villain wise Queen Banshera, Diabolico, Vypra & Loki (Pronounced Low Kai) weren't on par with the likes of the Alliance of Evil but they were menacing enough to be a threat to the Rangers save for Vypra who sounded vocally the same as Tommy Wiseau trying to be human. But despite the lack of truly evil villains that were on par with Power Rangers villains of the past this season was the Bad Ass season that truly and fully started off the Post Zordon Era of Power Rangers. 
(Cut to the beautiful blue sky as Ron Waserman's "Go Go Power Rangers" instrumental from "Power Rangers Redux" plays as a Lightning bolt lands in the center of the sky as James does a voice over and the number six appears)
TLOTA (Voiceover): Number six
6) Mighty Morphin Power Rangers season one(Cut to clips while James doing a voiceover of the clips)
TLOTA (Voiceover): The reason it doesn't make the Top five is because this was the season that started EVERYTHING off and to say it had it's ups and downs during those sixty episodes is an understatement while it. But it set the bar with "Day Of The Dumpster", the "Green With Evil" saga, "Doomsday", "Return Of An Old Friend", One of the episodes had them taking on "Frankenstein's Monster" but there were a few dumb moments that slipped through the cracks for example the fact that the parents dressed in the same colors as their parents in "Return of an old friend" or say having Zach trying to bribe a girl to date her. But this is where the good outweighs the bad even after it got a "Star Wars: Special Edition" remake in 2010 can't erase all that the TRUE first season of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers did for a generation. (Cut to James, Paul Schrier and Jason Narvy on the elevator and a muzak version of "Bulk & Skull" playing in the background.)

Paul Schrier: So why isn't it in the top five?

Jason Narvy: Well? Answer him. Why isn't Mighty Morphin Season one in the Top five?

TLOTA: It was at times too goofy and too preachy for it's own good but being too goofy or preachy does not make a bad season. Besides... (Elevator dings and the doors open to show the Power Rangers Dino Thunder & Power Rangers Megaforce/Super Megaforce with their ultimate combined weapon cannons aimed right at James as it cuts back to see Paul Schrier & Jason Narvy do some comedic shtick as the two decide to shove James out and close the doors behind them and James runs into the multimedia place where Jason David Frank & Austin St. John are looking for James as he runs in and the two see James and tries to outrun the duo as the two see a preview of "Survival's End")

Austin St. John: I really did my best work in this since Power Rangers.

Jason David Frank: You know I believe this is gonna get some awards. This is gonna be amazing.

TLOTA (Audio only): If I survive, I plan on buying this on Amazon on DVD the moment the movie is available.  Whoops!(Austin and Jason look around until the two see James next to a cardboard cutout of the Twelfth Doctor and Clara trying to stand still.)

Austin: Blade Blasters?

Jason: A man after my own heart! (James uses his Sonic Screwdriver to shatter the glass behind him and run right back into Dino Thunder and Megaforce/Super Megaforce on his left and Austin & Jason ready to blast him on his right. James fumbles around until he finds the quick cut to a commercial break device)

TLOTA (Audio only): I know I shouldn't use this but... (Cut to Austin & Jason)

Austin & Jason: FIRE! (Cut to Dino Thunder & Megaforce/Super Megaforce)

Megaforce/Super Megaforce: FIRE!

Dino Thunder: FIRE! (All of them fire their Weapons/Cannons as the combined blasts  head towards James)

TLOTA: SCREW IT! (James hits the button taking the review to a commercial break when the mouse on screen goes to atopthefourthwall.com as a video with Linkara happens as he scats his theme song)

Nimue (Audio only): Alert, Incoming blast!

Linkara: From where?

Nimue (Audio only): Confirming, several sites over! (An explosion happens outside of Linkara's apartment door and James comes busting through landing on Linkara and Linkara pushing James off.)

Linkara: Hey James, Are you alright?

TLOTA (Disorientated): Under the spreading chestnut tree the village smithy stands. The Smith a mighty man is he with strong & sinewy ...(James collapses and says "HANDS!)

Steve Cardenas (Audio only): OVER THERE! (Linkara pulls James up)

Linkara: Before things get more crazy and my video gets interrupted by Power Rangers you better tell me what's going on!

TLOTA: Well, back in July I posted the top ten worst seasons of Power Rangers. "Operation Overdrive" was the Number one worst season with the Mighty Morphin 2010 "Star Wars Special Edition" season coming in at number two and "Ninja Storm" in the middle.

Linkara: Can't argue there.

TLOTA: Put "Turbo" in there closer to the bottom along with "Wild Force".

Linkara: Okay

TLOTA: Put season 3 of "Mighty Morphin" somewhere in the middle along with "Lost Galaxy".

Linkara:  I'm beginning to understand why the Power Rangers want to go with Bennett's plan to overthrow The Nostalgia Critic in "Kickassia".

TLOTA: Listen, I'm sorry for putting you into this situation but I've got to hide. (James runs into Linkara's closet as every ranger comes rushing into Linkara's apartment.)

Jason David Frank: Hey, I remember you from a few years ago at Power Morphincon. (Turns to the camera) Coming August 12-14th 2016 in Pasadena California. (Turns back to Linkara) Your name was...

Linkara: Call me Linkara and I am aware of the situation and I think a fan isn't just someone who blindly screams oh we love you unconditionally that's part of it. Another part of being a true fan is knowing the fandom you are a part of has failed in one way or another and you're going to stay true to it and hope it gives you better and for James to say why he "Didn't think a certain season was really bad, he didn't like it." is because he knows certain seasons are other people's favorites. Heck there are people who are fans who like "Operation Overdrive" for some unexplainable reason. Heck, there are episodes of "Doctor Who" that I found I disliked yet other Whovians love.  So what do you say... Are you gonna give James Faraci, The Last Of The Americans a break? (Everyone looks at each other for a minute before they all say in unison "NO!") Well I tried, RUN! RUN YOU CLEVER YET CRAZY INTERNET REVIEWER AND FINISH WHAT YOU STARTED! (The Rangers turn to see James jump into another site as James looks to see he's on Cinemassacre waving hi to James & Mike in the middle of a "James & Mike Mondays" video and waving Hello to the two of them, then cutting to James landing on a Youtube video flaming him and James saying to the hater "You have every right not to like me but you will only inspire me to do better because I will ignore the haters and try to improve my work so those who do like my work can enjoy it better." then cutting to see James on Channel Awesome just as Mike Michaud appears on a "Behind The Scenes of Nostalgia Critic" video and James grabbing him, drags him into the bathroom and thunderous thuds are heard and James walks out to say "THAT'S FOR MY FRIEND THE ROWDY REVIEWER AND EVERYONE WHO WAS ON CHANNEL AWESOME YOU SCREWED OVER FOR YOUR SHORTCOMINGS!", then cutting to James on a Facebook page before hiding in a Photo of him as The Rangers look then run past him)

TLOTA: Okay I've got some time now to recuperate and work on the countdown. Number Five
(Cut to the beautiful blue sky as Ron Waserman's "Go Go Power Rangers" instrumental from "Power Rangers Redux" plays as a Lightning bolt lands in the center of the sky as James does a voice over and the number five appears)

5) Power Rangers SPD (Cut to clips while James doing a voiceover of the clips)

TLOTA (Voiceover): While there was probably enough explosions in this season to give Michael Bay an inferiority complex. I found it to be the only real problem in a kick-ass season which had the Rangers act like humans even though they had special abilities, The Rangers themselves all went through arcs that gave them depth and like so many other great seasons this season was bolstered with great writing, acting and Production value. Then we have the villainous Grumm, he was as dark as Lord Zedd and as bonkers for banana balls as any Gary Busey character plus the fact he did get a few minor victories against the Rangers. Then there was the "A-Squad" vs the "B-Squad"  in the finale. The "B-Squad" were the Rangers that we followed through out the season, The "A-Squad" were gone throughout most of the season and in that interim legitimately turned on SPD and proceeded to sell out their boss and the battle they had was freaking epic. And like other great seasons the fact so many character outside of the Rangers were great. Doggie Cruger was a great mentor, Cat Manx was superb as the Science and technical advisor to the Rangers. Even Boom was a great partner to Bridge Carson the Green Rangers as much as he was an assistant to Cat. An amazing season from start to finish and if I didn't put this in the top five I would be guilty and placed into a card with the Criminals SPD captures.

(Cut to the beautiful blue sky as Ron Waserman's "Go Go Power Rangers" instrumental from "Power Rangers Redux" plays as a Lightning bolt lands in the center of the sky as James does a voice over and the number four appears)


4) Mighty Morphin Power Rangers season two (Cut to clips while James doing a voiceover of the clips)

TLOTA (Voiceover): While season one was amazing and set the bar for the entire franchise. This season raised and even changed the bar. It brought new elements like Lord Zedd who with his first monster disabled the Rangers' Zords and nearly destroyed them only for the Rangers and Zordon to use the remaining parts and pieces to form the Thunderzords, then Zedd proceeded to slowly rid himself of The Green Ranger only for Zordon to make Tommy The White Ranger. Plus I liked how Bulk & Skull were doing more than just being bumbling bullies. They were working towards a goal, finding out who the Rangers were. Heck, the episode they do discover who the Rangers are, and this is after the whole Jason, Zack & Trini departure and trade for Rocky, Aisha and Adam as the replacements by the way, instead of going through with what they wanted to do which was expose them the two stand up to the monster reverses the polarity of the Neutron flow of that Monster's special ability which happened to be scrambling memories and save the day. Heck in the few episodes between the time Tommy had lost his powers and wasn't on the show and he was back as the White Ranger, Zedd did more Psychological damage to the Rangers than he did when Tommy was The Green Ranger in fact the Three Episodes I consider the first half of the second season finale, the other half being "A Friend In Need", which had Tommy The White Ranger take on Tommy The Green Ranger! YOWZA! With all that happened in this season, it's no wonder that so many people consider this a great season. It set what would happen for the continual evolution to keep the Power Rangers Franchise alive to this day. No wonder this is the best Mighty Morphin season of all three of them.

(Cut to the beautiful blue sky as Ron Waserman's "Go Go Power Rangers" instrumental from "Power Rangers Redux" plays as a Lightning bolt lands in the center of the sky as James does a voice over and the number three appears)

TLOTA (Voiceover): Number three
3) Power Rangers Time Force (Cut to clips while James doing a voiceover of the clips)

TLOTA (Voiceover): I give a lot of credit to the people who worked behind the scenes and to the cast for this season. The Rangers are amazing as is the villain Ransik, the Silver Guardians and their leader Eric The Quantum Ranger were meant to be equal to the Rangers but you discover quickly that the Guardians and The Rangers are anything but the same. Jen and Wes I believe co-commanded the Rangers. Though knowing her once dead fiancée looks like him and was The Red Ranger before Wes is all different levels of cuckoo. It makes everything in the Space Time continuum feel all, How did the Doctors put it? (Cut to the clip of the Tenth & Fifth Doctors from the Doctor Who minisode "Time Crash" in which the two say "Wibbly Wobbly Timey Whimey!" before cutting to James doing a voiceover.)

TLOTA(Voiceover): I know it seemed like a bad cutaway clip but it served a point about how the time space continuum we hear about how the future is all getting rewritten because of The Rangers and Ransik but we're never see it, maybe the time shadow and the fact that Jen's fiancée and former Red Ranger survived the supposed attack by Ransik. Other than that, the future sees very little difference.  Regardless of some hiccups this season has some of the strongest writing, best acting and amazing action and add to the fact it was the season AFTER "Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue", this season could've been one of the worse but instead so many things that made "Lightspeed Rescue" amazing went into making this season one of the finest ever.
(Cut to the beautiful blue sky as Ron Waserman's "Go Go Power Rangers" instrumental from "Power Rangers Redux" plays as a Lightning bolt lands in the center of the sky as James does a voice over and the number two appears)
TLOTA (Voiceover): Number two
2) Power Rangers RPM (Cut to clips while James does a voiceover of the clips)
TLOTA (Voiceover):While the canonicity towards the main universe is still up for debate by the fans, I consider this season the "Could be the connection between the Time Force team of 2001, SPD team of 2025 and "Time Force" of 3000" season. Because it starts with the end of earth and we are probably led to believe that the Rangers from the past 16 seasons were destroyed as well save for Jen, Trip, Katie & Lucas in "Time Force" and possibly the SPD Rangers. So this could've been a great clean slate to refresh the series. Speaking of the series, The Rangers themselves are 150 trillion times better than the "Operation Overdrive" season, save for Gem & Gemma who could make Dax run straight into a vat of acid head first after listening to a few lines of the "One Twin finishing the other's sentence" bit. But they're a minor misstep in this season. Then there is Doctor K, she was a victim of "Alphabet Soup" and to combat them she created the villainous Venjix virus that obliterated the world who is the Chimera and then created the Bellerophon to fight it off in the form of The RPM Rangers.  The Drama portrayed in the series was better because I'm sure at this point in time the showrunners decided to ignore the notes from that soulless talking head who did everything to fix it and fix it and fix it until it was broken and the result was one of the best seasons save for the episode "And...Action" which like Gem & Gemma, is a minor misstep. The finale was amazing as well, yeah it's no "Countdown To Destruction" but at this point, I think everyone wanted this thing to end anyway. But if This season was anything it is how Disney SHOULD have treated the Power Rangers from the get go blending Drama with Action and Comedy. The fact the series had started with one showrunner and by midseason he was fired for another showed how little Disney cared to see one person finish their work and to give the series another Kick in the Buckler, ABC Family by this point had dissolved their weekday & weekend kid programing and Toon Disney which was the home of the Power Rangers  in the Cable market by this point in time morphed into Disney XD which decided NOT to include The Power Rangers. I think a fan posted this on Facebook with a pic of Tenaya  saying "Disney made their best season ever & decided not to renew it".But in spite of this, RPM is the series that Disney used as their Trump Card which should've convinced them that Power Rangers was still viable. But things turned out the way they did and what we got for the Power Rangers Swansong of the Disney era was one of the best.
(Cut to the beautiful blue sky as Ron Waserman's "Go Go Power Rangers" instrumental from "Power Rangers Redux" plays as a Lightning bolt lands in the center of the sky as James does a voice over and the number one appears)
TLOTA (Voiceover): And the Number one DWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! (James flies over the number "one" and lands in his office building as he is flung around like a pinball in the other hallway in his office building eventually stopping on his feet as the image of the disembodied head of Deng Xiao Ping used in "Hong Kong 97"  is  tripled as is the music loop used in "Hong Kong 97" is tripled in the round with a half second delay per head spinning for about thirty seconds before James falls face front onto the floor)
TLOTA (Disorientated and muffled): What fool put a carpet on the wall?! (A Circle of Power Weapons circle around the back of James' head before cutting to all the rangers)

Jason Faunt: Any last requests? (James muffles the words "Scan Me" as the words are subtitled after cutting to the Rangers looking down at the subtitles.)

Matt Austin (Audio only): I've got this!  (Cut to James getting propped up in his chair before cutting to Matt Austin pull out his SPD Morpher)

Matt Austin: You are being charged with Hating the Power Rangers, tearing it a new one, and totally destroying The Power Rangers like so many in your Profession. (The SPD Morpher goes into Judgment mode and once the judgment of James Faraci is made) Uh guys according to this, he's innocent!

Everyone else (In unison): INNOCENT? (Cut to James in his chair)

TLOTA: Exactly, When have I ever at any point said "I hate The Power Rangers"? (Cut to clips of different incarnations of "Power Rangers" while James does a voiceover)

TLOTA (Voiceover): Power Rangers have been a part of my life since I saw the preview episode in 1993. Even though I should've fazed out of enjoying the series a LONG time ago, I still give The Power Rangers the benefit of the doubt Every season even in the season that is without a shadow of a doubt the WORST season, I held on to a little hope that something from the better seasons shine through. Why do you think I broke character when I talked about that bad pile of Garbage that dared to title itself "Power/Rangers" during the crossover with my friend The Rowdy Reviewer on "Fox Kids"because I cared about the true Power Rangers Franchise to honestly say what I needed to say Out of Character because that is how much Power Rangers means to me. Power Rangers remains a great part of my existence because it continues the Joseph Campbell Mono myth and that sometimes it's never gonna be easy but eventually good WILL win out! My nieces when they were so three maybe four years old described the whole of concept so well that The Power Rangers are the good guys and their job is to stop the Bad Guys. Something so wise yet so simple that it came from my twin nieces before they even had a concept of what true Good and Evil is. That is something that reminds me why I love it as well. (Cut to James and The Power Rangers actors in the same area.)

Jason David Frank:  I get it, Oh man did I overreact.

Austin St. John: We all did.

TLOTA: Listen, there's only one season left and since we all know what that season is so why don't we all talk about it together.What do you say?  We do this together? (James extends his hand before cutting to Jason David Frank and everyone else looking at one another and all of them shaking their heads in agreement and they all reach their hands towards James' and he is picked up out of his seat and embraced by all the Rangers.)

TLOTA: Okay and now....(James collapses)

Jason David Frank: Whoa! What happened? Help me get him up! (Everyone pick James up  and everyone oohs in shock as they see the damage they did on his backside)

Austin St. John: He took a hell of a lickin'.

Erin Cahill: And did his best to keep on tickin'.

Jason David Frank: I think we owe it to James to have him sit this one out.

Austin St. John:  Good Idea, let's finish this list for him. All right everyone ready.

Everyone (United): RIGHT! The Number One Season of Power Rangers is...

(Cut to the beautiful blue sky as Ron Waserman's "Go Go Power Rangers" instrumental from "Power Rangers Redux" plays as a Lightning bolt lands in the center of the sky as The Rangers does a voice over and the number one appears)

1) Power Rangers In Space

Selwyn Ward (Voiceover): And for good reason, it tied up all the loose ends from everything that had happened in seasons past.

Jason David Frank(Voiceover): Though I do wish those who were Rangers in the past were there in the finale to emphasize that better. In addition there was better emphasis on not only Character development but better storytelling.

Melody Perkins (Voiceover): And you know you've got to give it up for the villain for that season and the development they gave her. Wink Wink. (Everyone else groans)

Austin St. John (Voiceover): And lest we forget the Red Ranger of Andros who possibly went through so much. To say what he went through was Greek Tale of pain and heartache of being a refugee who lost his home due to war and destruction is an understatement.

Vernon Wells (Voiceover): Then there was the saga with the Psycho Rangers who pushed the Rangers to a point where they thought the only way to win at one point to take themselves out with The Psycho Rangers.

Jason Faunt (Voiceover): Then there was The brief albeit poignant romance between Zhane The Silver Ranger & Astronema that was the first time we saw that there was the other side of her. And considering the twist for Astronema, the only way I can phrase it is that it showed a human side for lack of a better term.

Melody Perkins (Voiceover): I actually find that remark Apropos.


Daniel Southworth (Voiceover): Then there is the finale and how freaking glorious it was!

Johnny Yong Bosch (Voiceover): Part one was pretty much evil is taking over and the heroes we knew were being trampled under foot.

Steve Cardenas (Voiceover): Chaos and Destruction throughout the galaxy as the United Alliance Of Evil trampling over everything.

Michael Copon (Voiceover): Dogs & Cats living together, Mass Hysteria! (An audible thwack is heard as is Michael shouting "OW!")

Walter Jones (Voiceover): And just to add lemon juice to the wounds the Delta Megazord and The Mega Voyager were demolished in the episodes leading to the finale and the Mega Winger was decimated by the Velocifighters and instead of Zordon's pleas getting through to Astronema, it instead Galvanized what happened to her in the two part episode "Dark Specter's Revenge" and sent her completely to the dark side.

Paul Schrier (Voiceover):  Then came Part Two of The finale in which my character and Jason Narvy's character had what will remain the moment Bulk & Skull had their finest moment. The two leading the charge having ordinary people join together against the forces of evil to fight alongside The Power Rangers.

Jason Narvy (Voiceover): Not too shabby for two guys who got detention for failing a mid-term exam.

Karan Ashley (Voiceover): Then came the final battle between Andros & Astronema which had Andros on the ropes throughout the entire battle and it was a ricochet that takes out Astronema.

Sean Cw Johnson (Voiceover): With no other option, Andros is forced to sacrifice Zordon in order to save the Universe.

David Yost (Voiceover): No wonder many people considered this two part episode the best episode of Power Rangers.

Amy Jo Johnson (Voiceover): Or why this series is the best of the entire of the franchise.

Jason David Frank (Voiceover): Well it's obvious why. Because it felt like it all the series before this series was building everything up to this crescendo, to see that through sacrifice and determination and a little bit of luck Good WILL triumph over evil. "Power Rangers In Space" The number one season for a reason. (Cut to James coming to in his office)

TLOTA: Ugh, What the Sam Hill happened? (Cut to the Rangers outside James' office doorway)

Austin St. John: Well you were about to explain why "Power Rangers in Space" was the Number one season but with all we did to you, well we felt  you needed to sit this one out.

Jason David Frank: But we used your notes and did the work for you. (Cut to James in his office)

TLOTA: Thanks but you didn't have to...(Cut to the Rangers outside his office doorway)

Nakia Burrise: James after how we nearly decimated you, you needed a break.(Cut to James in his office)

TLOTA: Well, thanks again and I'm glad you were finally able to see I'm not the bad guy at all...

Rebecca Fonseca (Audio only): Okay James, I'm ready.  (Cut to the Rangers outside James' office doorway where Rebecca now dressed as Rita Repulsa is trying to squeeze next to the Rangers)

Rebecca Fonseca: You're going down, Power Rangers.

Austin St. John: Whoa there Rebecca, We made peace with James.

Jason David Frank: And I'm surprised no one on the rest of James' team told you. We told the others but you weren't available.

Michael Copon: Probably looking like what Madonna would wear if she was Cosplaying a Queen Amidala from "Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace" if it came out in 1992. (Vernon Wells smacks Michael in the back of the head and Michael turns around) Who's doing that?

Rebecca Fonseca: So all of what we went through, was for nothing?! (Rebecca slams Rita's Magic Wand to the ground and proceeds to flip off everyone of the Rangers)

Rebecca (Sounding like Rita Repulsa as she's being dubbed by James Faraci with a half second difference): SCREW YOU POWER RANGERS! YOU THINK YOU CAN GET AWAY WITH THIS! WAIT UNTIL NEXT TIME! I DON'T BELIEVE THIS! OF ALL THE RACKING FRACKING, COCK & BULL, I HAVE A HEADACHE!
