The Hunger Games return with such a sequel twist that you can't believe writer Suzanne Collins didn't think of film when writing. Catching Fire builds up with all types of subversive messaging which is interesting but also brings into relief the limitations of the genre and film.
The show itself is similar to every Super Sentai and Power Ranger show; It features individual color costumes, zords, and evil monsters.
Tommy Oliver - The most prolific Power Ranger to date; he has been the Green, White, White Ninja, Red Zeo, Red Turbo and Black Dino Thunder Ranger. After the events of Power Rangers Turbo, he attended college at MIT and got his doctorate in Paleontology. While researching fossils, he stumbled upon 3 gems from the asteroid that decimated the dinosaurs 65 million years ago. He knew these would be dangerous in the wrong hands, so he hid them.
After college, He worked with Hayley Ziktor to create the Dino Morpher, just in case anything happened, new rangers could be enlisted. He also worked with Anton Mercer and Terrance Smith on a project that focused on Zords and other dinosaur related things. Sometime during his work, there was a terrible explosion that destroyed the island and his partners, Anton and Terrance, had disappeared.
Hoping to have a quieter life, moved to Reefside, California as a science teacher for Reefside High School. This is where he met the next iteration of the Power Rangers.
Conner McKnight - An aspiring soccer player who has been trust into the role of the Red Dino Ranger and has the power of super speed. When they find the dino gems in Tommy’s base, the red gem fused with Conner’s DNA and gave him super speed. Conner is also given the most power ups throughout the season than any other ranger, which means he is technically the most powerful ranger.
He is labeled as a “dumb jock”, because of his arrogance at the beginning, but as the show goes on, he is actually honest and means well. He is also very similar to the original Red Ranger, Jason.
Ethan James - A nerdy computer guy (similar to Billy Cranston) who is the Blue Dino Ranger. The gem gave him the power to harden his skin, which allows him to absorb a large amount of damage, and dish out damage. He is smart, outgoing, and isn’t afraid to stand up for himself.
Kira Ford - She is an up-and-coming musician who is the Yellow Dino Ranger. She has a sonic screech that the gem gave her. She expresses herself through her music and is a friendly person who has the ability to see people for what they are, not what they appear.
Trent Fernandez - The adopted son of Anton Mercer and the White Dino Ranger. His gem gave him the power to camouflage and super speed, but also turned him evil. Just like Tommy when he was the Green Ranger, he eventually broke free of this and joined the Rangers in their fight against evil.
Hayley Ziktor - Long time friend of Tommy who also owns Cyberspace Cafe. She is a kind, yet informed ally who know everything about everyone. She also helped Tommy build the Dino Morphers.
Anton Mercer/Mesogog - He is a successful and world renowned scientist who helped Tommy in his experiment. An explosion happened that caused him to transform into the evil mastermind Mesogog. His whole plan is to revert the Earth back to the age of dinosaurs.
