Based on my limited knowledge of the series, changing the casts with every season was kind of a necessity. It probably made it easier for new fans to jump into the franchise if they didn't feel the need to rewatch previous seasons in order to follow along with the new one. It might have made it easier to use the sentai footage if they didn't have to create new explanations for the cast to get new powers too.

I'm sure that the decision was still a turnoff for a lot of fans, but I think that it probably helped to keep the franchise going instead of keeping the same characters around all this time.

The actors age as time goes on and they can also get bored of their roles making them move on to something else.

I've always preferred it that way once they started doing that, although I like how the first seven seasons were connected by having most of the cast members carry over into the following season. A part of that has to to with nostalgia I guess.

I remember watching Power Rangers as a kid but overtime I got really bored of the show. Just so easy to move on from the series and never return to it.

Is it possible for posts to end up on the wrong thread? Or would that just be due to carelessness? I noticed that happened with one of mine just moments ago, and remember a similar incident not long ago.

Another family emergency update (long story short):

After charging in and out of the hospital a few more times, my mother had to do a colonoscopy earlier this month and they detected colon cancer. So yesterday, she underwent colon surgery and is now 100% cancer-free.

Now she's in the ICU due to very low blood pressure, still in the process of recovery.

Why does society keep devolving for the last century or so, why is America 50 years behind where it should’ve been? And anybody who tries to makes things better will be swept under the rug or get screwed over by cancer or disease.

I hate to get political here especially but for what happened today I can’t help
Just sending out hearts and hugs to anyone who needs them on this awful day. You're not alone.
