  1. Am I the only one who is noticing the audio being really weird with NC’s voice?

  2. Oh my god, that cameo at the end made this 100 times funnier!

  3. The only way the review could have been better would have been making Nostalgia Critic doing the Fake dick thrust Great Saiyaman does in the DBZ movie Battle of Gods during the Bingo tournament/Hostage situation, am I right?

  4. The urban legend that Turbo nearly killed Power Rangers is complete horseshit!

    It’s true that the first half had low ratings, but that was from a two-year ratings decline that had been stuck on the franchise since Mighty Morphin Season 3 in late 1995 (Zeo would’ve gotten huge ratings, but Big Bad Beetleborgs was getting ALL the attention in late 1996).

    But, after the change of cast in “Passing the Torch” happened, the second half of Turbo started getting good ratings, which was good news for Saban and the Power Rangers franchise.

    On top of that, the old Power Rangers (Tommy, Kat, Adam, and Tanya) were becoming adults. Yes, teenagers DO have some responsibilities and problems, but nothing compared to adulthood, which means real responsibilities such as getting a job and paying bills. These are things a teenager lacks, which makes them ideal Power Rangers. If there’s a monster attack, they don’t have to make up some random excuse and risk their jobs to step out. It’s possible for them to go into space and leave their seemingly non-existent parents behind. Teenagers makes sense. Not terribly much sense, I’ll grant you, but we all get the logic.

    And honestly, the replacements (T.J., Cassie, Carlos, and Ashley) are no worse than the first team of Power Rangers (Jason, Zack, Trini, Billy, and Kimberly) were when they were chosen by Zordon. Hell, Billy couldn’t even fight for shit back then, and they still picked him up.

    So overall, is Turbo the worst Power Rangers season of all time? Nope, not even close, because for me, it’s Megaforce by a fucking mile. I mean, like, Turbo is far better than Mighty Morphin Season 3 for example, and it’s similar enough to Mighty Morphin Seasons 1 and 2 in terms of episode quality. Y’know, it’s a perfectly acceptable season. On paper, Turbo sounds like it’s horrendous, maybe because of the new faces, or the massive swell of negativity, but I found Turbo quite easy to watch, especially the second half.

    After my two pence worth, I don’t want people to be like “Oh my god, he’s saying it’s not the worst Power Rangers season ever! Fuck this guy!” because Turbo’s maybe like, the fifth worst Power Rangers season ever, y’know, but it’s not the worst.
