Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that far-fetched fantasy violence is the name of the game. Human protagonists battle monstrous enemies with oversized weapons (hammer, hand-held bulldozer buckets, water-based gun) and extreme vehicles. The only remotely realistic aspects of the violence are he physical exchanges of punches and kicks, but even they don't result in injuries that are shown. On the positive side, the Rangers exhibit excellent teamwork, and a father and son bridge their relationship with renewed respect for each other. The Power Rangers are heavily marketed to the 5+ set, but they're better suited for kids a year or two older.
All kinds of action-hero fighting, including laser blasts, kicking, punching, and explosions. Characters are banged around a lot, but no lasting injuries are shown. Some bad guys appear to break into unrecognizable pieces when they're hit. In one scene, a character is thrown into a pit of lava, but the impact isn't shown.
Violence is the only means of conflict resolution throughout the series. A father and son come to understand and respect each other. The Power Rangers rely on each other's individual strengths to battle their enemies. The multicultural cast includes Asian-American and African-American characters, and females are clearly the guys' equals.
Power Rangers merchandise (toys, games, clothes) gets a lot of publicity from the series.
