Oh please, RPM was not only a bad PR season, it was a failure. The ratings were terrible and the money spent on it was not justified. It was an afterthought by the time Saban Brands got on board and not the direction they wanted. Granted they lost there way for a time going back with the Tzachor approach. But they have smartened up by replacing him with Judd Lynn and a more original approach.

I really liked the concept for "Ranger Black" as well. Eddie's RPM was better than what we got in the second half. But I wouldn't say the second half was bad. And I agree, Judd did the best he could. I can't blame him for borrowing from Andros and Karone. There wasn't much time to come up with new story-lines and he had no idea what Eddie planned. You usually don't get to consult with the show-runner who was just let go. And if Disney wanted Eddie's RPM the rest of the way, he wouldn't have been fired.

The whole plot to the episode does seem a little much. I agree the finalie to RPM was a little weird. But "Ranger Black" wasn't the answer.

I think the episode would have went through a lot of changes if it was produced.

Ordinarily it would have. But it was a perfect storm since Disney was shutting the show down and DinoThundr would have been lame duck.

I really liked this concept. Maybe we can explore it in comic book form someday.

Why spend more good money after bad at that point? ™If it weren't for this "Ranger Black" likely would have preceeded pretty closely with Eddie' vision.

RPM was better for the production change. Judd riegned things in and made RPM more tolerable as a PR season. Eddie had talent but he tried to change too much too fast. I find RPM to be overrated and an example of why grim dark Power Rangers is less than ideal.

"Ranger Black" may have worked for another franchise. But for a show like Power Rangers, it would have been a disaster. Power Rangers is supposed to be uplifting. The tragady of the Rangers having to defeat a fake friend would have just not been a place Power Rangers could go. Its scary how close it was to happening and how it was almost the last episode.
you're full of it if you seriously think Disney would have approved "Ranger Black" in its entirely. Yes they gave them a lot more of a creative license but if you seriously think that they were going to approve Ranger Black being a sleeper agent that had infiltrated the Rangers and being one of the final villains that they would have to destroy then you're completely and entirely full of it and you must be pretty drunk to seriously believe it was going to happen 100% in its entirely.

Disney was most hands off with RPM..So its not a stretch to believe "Ranger Black" would have happened if it weren't for Eddie's dismissal..Eddie already got away with killing Marcus and Andrews. Not to mention having a season in a post apocalyptic world where 90 percent of the Earth was killed off. Eddie just sunk himself by falling behind on the scripts. If it wasn't for that he would have got the episode produced.

I am not saying "Ranger Black is good. I think it would have been a terrible Power Rangers episode. And really Eddie's RPM was far overrated.

I don't see what is so bad about the episode. It sounds like it would have been good actually.

doesn't matter how they were with RPM there's no guarantee they would have allowed such a plot. Killing Marcus was technically offscreen which would have been fine in any season. Yes there was the Andrews death but that means squat.

Wild Force got away with killing Cole's Parents and Master Org granted Master Org was no longer a human once he was killed.

There were no deaths in Ninja Storm but we saw the spirits of Hunter and Blake's dead Parents.

No deaths in Dino Thunder BUT Trent had mentioned how he had lost his Parents in a cave-in.

No on-screen deaths but Cruger mentioned how most of his kind were destroyed when Gruumm had attacked his planet.

No on-screen deaths but Niella lost her life during the Great Battle and presumably so did the other wizards.

Tyzonn had mentioned how most of his original team were lost due to a cave-in.

Master Mao was killed on-screen.
