As I’ve mentioned before my sons are huge Power Rangers fans, especially my five year old.  Since we don’t have cable television they had only heard of, but not actually seen the new series Power Rangers:  Super Samurai.   This new twist on the classic, was my boys idea of awesomeness.  They were highly thrilled to actually have a chance to watch this new show.

The basics of the Power Rangers are the same throughout all the seasons, though the theme and colors vary along with the villains.  With each new series the special effects improve, as the technology enables.  Yes, there is violence in Power Rangers, a lot of kung fu action.  If you don’t want your children to watch this sort of thing, then this probably isn’t for you.  Trying to keep fighting away from boys is like trying to stop a bird from building a nest.  It’s just what they do.  However, it is important that this degree of violence is tempered and controlled.

I personally find Power Rangers to be the perfect mix.  The boys still get the action they crave, but they see goodness as well.  Case in point,  as they were watching the show, my two older boys each picked a particularly colored Ranger to represent them.  My eldest was red and my youngest was blue.  As the Red Ranger was being overcome by the villain my younger son the Blue Ranger stated as his character appeared, “I’ll help you Red Ranger”.  Then as a team they both helped to defeat the bad guy.  After the scene was over my boys high-fived each other and said, “Good job, we did it together with team work”.   How sweet is that?!

It might be unexpected, but truly Power Rangers has reenforced to my boys the power of working as  team.  What mother wouldn’t love that?!
