Power Rangers are back. Officially they’ve never gone away since they first appeared on TV back in 1993. They’ve morphed through numerous versions over the year. Now they’ve become Power Rangers Dino Charge. This is different from Power Rangers: Dino Thunder. Dino Charged features powerful Energems featuring the spirit of various dinosaurs. You can see the Energems at Toys ‘R Us. The new Rangers are kids who were working at a dinosaur museum in various capacity. Power Rangers Dino Charge: Unleashe contains the first four episodes of the 22 made for the series.

“Powers From the Past” sets up how “The Keeper” was holding the ten special Energems. Sledge, a bounty hunter and his outlaw crew track him across the universe. The Keeper ended up on prehistoric Earth where he hid the Energems. A few years later at the Amber Beach Dinosaur Museum, the staff finds the Keeper and the Energems. This transforms them into the new Dino Charged version of the Power Rangers. They have to battle Sledge to find the remaining five Energems. “Past, Present and Fusion” brings together the new unit. “A Fool’s Hour” teaches the new kids that they must work as a unit if they want to survive the attacks from Sledge. “Return of the Caveman” has Koda learning to adjust to the modern world. The Raptor Zord and the Dino Cycles arrive.

Josie has already bought the updated Pink Ranger outfit for Dino Charge. Here’s Josie’s take on the new collection:

The video is 1.78:1 anamorphic. The transfer looks fine. The image has that shot in New Zealand gleam. The audio is Dolby Digital Stereo. You will hear the dinosaurs charge. The episodes are Closed Captioned.

Power Rangers Dino Charge: Unleashed brings even more dinosaur and Power Ranger action to the screen.

Lionsgate presents Power Rangers Dino Charge: Unleashed. Starring: Sela Ward, Swoozie Kurtz, Patricia Kalember, Julianne Phillips. Boxset Contents: 24 Episodes on 6 DVDs. Released: January 19, 2015.
