They should have kept going and did MMPR season 4, 5, and 6 instead of the spinoffs.

Continuing MMPR would have been for the best

The changes in season 2 were actually pretty great though.

Tommy was at his best as White Ranger anyway.

Tommy jumped the shark when they created his charactsr. Just never should have been on the show to begin with.

Power Rangers needed Tommy. As well as the love story between Kim and Tommy. Which is why I fell in love with the show in the first place. As well as most fans I would think.

Anyway, MMPR season 4 with Kat as the new main villian would have been awesome! Kimberly would have been brought back to claim her rightful place as Pink of course. But Tommy would have to fight to get her back to make up for spending so much time with Kat.

Zeo was a great season! No way I'd want to take that away. Tommy and Kat ended up being good together anyway.

Katherine had her slip-ups as "good." I honestly believe she was more herself when she was evil. The true reason why the spell lasted so long was due to her jealousy of Kimberly and her crush on Tommy. I also noticed when Tommy was alone with Katherine even while Kimberly was still there he would flirt with Katherine which angered me. It showed he still had an evil streak inside.

I honestly think Jason is better for Kimberly anyway.

As far as the discussion about the show itself, I do think some seasons are just badly written and some are better than are being given credit for.

By far I feel two of the worst seasons IMHO are Turbo(not just because of Justin either) and Wild Force.

Here is an interesting view on the whole Jason and Tommy thing. They represent the "YING VS. YANG" style which I honestly think took me awhile to see. Its why they originally butted heads in a few episodes. Both had leadership qualities. Jason was the squeaky clean Army type who led by example and always did the right thing.

Tommy on the other hand lived for the moment and made decisions without looking at the consequences. Its why he would slip up now and then and make rash decisions. Its what made him easy prey for Rita. Its also why it was never meant to last his relationship with Kimberly. I get that now.

I think Kat's jealousy and Tommy crush did influence her behavior. But it wasn't really her fault because the spell took away her ability to control herself. If she wasn't under an evil spell her conscious would have stopped her from acting on her negative feelings.

Tha's is a good way of describing Jason and Tommy. It makes a lot of sense.

She proved it she still carried her crush on Tommy even after she broke the spell which also proves her jealous of Kimberly was still there. In one episode of Zeo, she nearly told Tanya about her crush but stopped herself for some reason. I believe this was only because Tommy was upset and not due to any other reason.
