“Power Rangers Dino Super Charge:
The Complete Season DVD Review”

June 22, 2017



With the home release of the Power Rangers Movie quickly approaching, it’s important to remember that the movie is not the only Power Rangers release coming on June 27th. The complete season of Power Rangers Dino Super Charge will be coming to DVD on that same day too. Sadly however, the season set is not actually complete.


POWER RANGERS DINO CHARGE: THE COMPLETE SEASON OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION

The Power Rangers continue their search for the Energems after Sledge’s defeat, but soon learn that his most dangerous prisoner, the evil Heckyl, survived! In light of this new threat, Kendall creates a powerful new Dino Charger that unlocks the Red Ranger’s T-Rex Super Charge mode! It will take every Zord, Megazord and Dino Charger in the Power Rangers’ arsenal to finally unite all ten Energems and save the universe!





PACKAGING, ARTWORK & DISC

This complete season release combines the previous two Dino Super Charge Volumes into one set. The set has a normal slip cover. The artwork for the cover looks nice, but I have to admit that it looked better when it was first revealed online. I’m not sure why, but now having it in hand, the cover artwork just looks bland. It’s okay with various Zords around the season logo, and the five core Rangers in Dino Super Drive Mode at the bottom. But I just feel like the front cover is missing something. The back has more design to it as it shows off the Red Ranger and the other five Rangers in their Dino Super Drive Modes, as well as other Zords on a battlefield, with the usual logo, description and listing of episodes. The disc cover art is good a bright, each one showing off the Rangers, Zords and weapons.


MENUS

The Main Menu for each disc mirrors the cover art for that disc, along with the DVD logo and menu options. The instrumental version of the Dino Charge theme song plays in the background of the menus.


EPISODES

Now to the sticking point here. This set claims to be the “complete” season of Dino Super Charge. It is not. It has all twenty core episodes of the season. However, it does not have the Halloween episode “Trick or Trial” or the Holiday episode “Here Comes Heximas”. This is disappointing since the complete Dino Charge DVD set did include their Halloween & Holiday episodes. So in this set you get the main twenty episodes that follow.



#1 When Evil Stirs

The Rangers believe their work is done after they’ve defeated Sledge and his evil monsters. Unbeknownst to them, an even more powerful monster is picking up where Sledge left off and is closer to the Rangers than they think.



#2 Forgive and Forget

Snide plans to contaminate the city water with venom that makes you forget who you are in hopes that the Rangers will be infected. Meanwhile, Riley has a score to settle with an old rival at the Amber Beach Marathon.



#3 Nightmare in Amber Beach

Shelby receives a pillow from an unknown sender. When she uses it to take a nap, she starts living a nightmare. The Rangers suspect this must be from Snide so they all make sure to stay awake, but that proves to be harder than they thought.



#4 A Date with Danger

Chase tries to impress his new girlfriend, Kaylee by showing how talented and accomplished he is. But when it becomes more about him and less about her, Kaylee starts to fall for the Black Ranger instead.



#5 Roar of the Red Ranger

Tyler tries to master the new T-Rex Super Charge Mode, but after Heckyl plants a virus in Kendall's computer, the T-Rex Super Charger malfunctions and makes Tyler go wild! Luckily, the Aqua Ranger is able to step in before it's too late.



#6 Forged Under Fire

Tyler looks forward to catching up with his dad after not seeing him for the past 10 years. When Tyler's Energem becomes cracked, he is forced to mend it by placing it in Hot Lava and prove to his dad he's not a kid anymore.



#7 Home Run Koda

Kendall creates a new Victory Charger that requires the core 5 Energems. But when Riley becomes Koda's coach on the Amber Beach Earthquake baseball team, he has a hard time pulling himself away from the game to help the other Rangers.



#8 Riches and Rags

When Ivan mistakes a thousand year old suit of armor as a training dummy, he finds himself in debt after destroying it. Heckyl sends in a hybrid monster named Spell Digger to spread greed to anyone who touches his gold coins.



#9 Besties 4Eva!

Shelby's lifelong friend Erin starts to take credit for a song that Shelby wrote when they were kids. But when Erin starts to take credit for the work of the Pink Ranger, she quickly realizes how dangerous it can be to claim ownership of someone else's work.



# 10 Gone Fishin'

The Silver Ranger contacts Kendall from the far reaches of space to let them know where the location of a new Zord. When Singe and Fury intercept the message it becomes a race to see who can get there first.

The Rangers discover the cave where Koda and his family once lived. Questioning the wise words of his Grandfather, Koda opens a section of the cave he was told to never enter, allowing an ancient monster to escape.

The Rangers become disoriented when they fall victim to a body switching monster. But they must find a way to come together in their new bodies to defeat a pair of monsters reanimated by Wrench.

A new exhibit comes to the Amber Beach museum: Worg the robotic caveman. But things take a turn for the worse when the Rangers are turned into zombies by a trumpet-playing monster.

The Rangers find themselves needing help in their toughest fight yet as they do battle with Snide one final time, and Sledge's eggs hatch across the four corners of the Earth.



#20 End of Extinction

The Dark Energem creates a black hole that takes the Rangers back in time, as they must go to a prehistoric age for their final showdown with Sledge and Fury.


BONUS FEATURES
The set does not come with any bonus features.


FINAL VERDICT

This set is okay. Dino Super Charge was an all right season for me, so the episodes were either hit or miss. If you have a young Power Rangers fan that doesn’t have the previous Dino Super Charge volumes, then this is a good buy for them. If you are a collector, like myself, who strives to have every episode on DVD, then this is a good pickup. I only wish that Lionsgate had included the two extra episodes to really make this set complete.

The Power Rangers Dino Super Charge: The Complete Season DVD is available starting June 27th, 2017, wherever DVDs are sold. It should cost $15 to $20, depending on the retailer.
