Unfortunately, I have not seen the Power Rangers RPM Volume 1, and I need to point out from the beginning that you really need to see those first five episodes in order to understand what is going on with the series.

This disc contains episodes 6-10, in which the Power Rangers are trying to save the world from an evil computer virus named Venjix. Tenaya 7 (Adelaide Kane), their lead robot, is set to defeat the Red, Blue, Yellow, Black, and Green Rangers, led by their leader Dr. K (Olivia Tennet).

These episodes seem to have lost the intensity and spark the series used to carry. The Jungle Fury Power Rangers were exciting, each episode full of action. It's difficult to believe that these actors enjoy their work at all; everything feels cheesy and lackluster. The storylines with each episode are okay, but either my ten-year-old son is getting too old for Power Rangers or he is just unimpressed with the direction the series is taking. His main comment about this disc and these episodes: "boring."

Overall, it might be a decent rental if you have a Power Rangers fan in your home, but unless you've seen Volume 1 either on television or on DVD, you will probably be quite lost in the narrative.
