My 10-year-old son enjoys the Power Rangers, but he had never sat down and watched an extended number of them all in a row. According to him, this was the best way to do it.

This collection contains the first six episodes of the Power Rangers series from Toon Disney and ABC Kids. Power Rangers is the story of three kids trying to save the world. Lily (Anna Hutchison), Theo (Aljin Abella) and Jarrod (Bede Skinner) train at the secret temple of The Order of the Claw and have been chosen by Master Mao (Nathaniel Lees) to enter The Forbidden Room because they have been revealed to have animal spirit powers. Jarrod mistreats a younger student and is not allowed to enter but replaced with Casey (Jason Smith).

When they enter The Forbidden Room, they learn that thousands of years ago, an evil spirit named Dai Shi wanted to get rid of humans and replace them with animals. Dai Shi has been imprisoned in a casket since it was captured. Master Mao explains to Theo, Lily and Casey that they must master the art of Kung Fu to protect the world in case Dai Shi escapes. Surprise, surprise - Jarrod is furious that he has been replaced and gets into a fight, knocking the casket over and setting Dai Shi free - who then inhabits Jarrod and kills Master Mao.

Master Mao tells the students that they must find their new master at a certain address. The address leads to a pizza restaurant and their new master, surfer R.J. (David de Lautour). He teaches them how to become Power Rangers to help save the human race.

Overall, Jungle Fury is enjoyable and entertaining. I even got into watching the shows along with my son, because the humor is great and draws adults into the series. A ton of action makes for an exciting show, and cliffhangers at the end of each episode keep you tuning in for more. Power Rangers: Jungle Fury - Into the Jungle (Volume One) is a great show, especially for the boys in your life, but girls may find enough humor and action to be engaged as well.
