As with other Power Rangers collections – Shout Factory has put together the entire series (40 episodes) contained in professional packaging. What’s missing is any bonus material from the DVD set and the quality of this particular season lacks in many ways. The main cast of Power Rangers Wild Force is pretty weak but the villains are all pretty memorable especially Toxica and Master Org.
This was the very first Power Rangers series to air on ABC instead of Fox, after Disney's acquisition of Fox Family (now ABC Family) - which included Saban Entertainment (now BVS) and the Power Rangers franchise - from News Corporation and Haim Saban. Though, ABC aired season two of Power Rangers Wild Force (2002) after its previous season on Fox.
Power Rangers Wild Force has the usual formula – teenagers who morph into Power Rangers and fight against evil Orgs and other types of villains. The original four members (yellow, black, blue and white ranger) are already friends and members of the fighting team – they soon meet up with Cole who eventually becomes the red ranger. Cole is from the jungle and tuned into animals so that gives the show a bit of a ‘backbone’ on the whole Wild Force angle. What’s strange is how clueless the original four rangers are in combining their fighting tactics before Cole joins them and somehow he instinctively knows how to combine their weapons and help form the Wild Force Megazord.
A crossover with Power Rangers Wild Force (2002) was planned as stated in an interview by producer Jackie Marchand, but due to production relocating to New Zealand and that it would be too expensive to bring in the cast, it was scrapped.
