Finally caught up on Go-busters!!!!!!!!!!!!
I did it! I didn't think I could, but I did it! I've managed to catch up on Go-busters! And wouldn't you know it -- a new episode aired today! NOOOOOOOOOOO! Go away, Go-busters! Go away!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The show started off like molasses, and then, thankfully, Akibaranger came on and distracted me from Go-busters. I liked Akibaranger, and it's the show Toei should have aired as 2012's Sentai, but didn't have the balls to. Focusing on Akibaranger caused me to get behind on Go-busters, and episodes kept piling up, and jumping ahead to episodes like the TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE Gavan-Fake crossover didn't exactly inspire me to keep up with Go-busters. But, you know, I wanted to have it done and finished by the new show (and/or Akibaranger's second series), so I've been trying to finish it...
And. It. Was. SLOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW going. Actually, there's a brief period where Go-busters gets tolerable, but then it has its first "finale," and from the Gavan crossover on, the show becomes work and a test of patience; it's like watching somebody read a book about paint drying, in slow motion. No stories, no interesting characters, no entertainment -- just mecha. Just mecha, mecha, more mecha, and then more mecha, and mecha, and mecha, and mecha and then that horrible ending song.
The cast sucks, they've always seemed to me like the B-Team, like whoever Toei really wanted to cast all turned the show down.
Messiah, Enter and Escape are the most boring, useless, boring and awful "villains" of the Sentai franchise. Enter's basically like if the only villain in Maskman was Anagumas, and then the show decides to add another character, just the female version of Anagumas.
Parents must love this show, because not only is it an easy way to get a kid to fall asleep, but it can be used as punishment. "Hey, you better behave, or I'm going to put in a Go-busters episode!"
This show just might overtake the likes of Hurricanger, Boukenger and Go-onger as my least favorite Sentai show.
