This weekend was a phenomenal time for 1990s kids that grew up with a geeky side, as Dean Israelite's big screen reboot Power Rangers finally debuted in theaters, and it served as a genuine love letter to an iconic TV series -- complete with enough Easter eggs and cameos to drive us wild. It's been decades since Mighty Morphin Power Rangers first aired, and this movie has completely reminded us why we fell in love with the show in the first place.

However, as much as we like Dean Israelite's newly released Power Rangers reboot, it's hard to shake the feeling that it might've been better as a small screen project. On that note, we have taken it upon ourselves to compile a list of reasons why Power Rangers should've been conceived as a TV reboot from the very beginning. Check out our arguments, and let us know what you think in the comments section below. Now, without further delay-zords, let's kick this list off with what separates the Power Rangers from other superhero teams: its leader-free ensemble nature.

TV Works Way Better For An Ensemble

Although Power Rangers' big screen effort does an incredibly commendable job of balancing the sheer number of charming personalities on the titular team, the fact of the matter is that some characters do fall by the wayside as the story progresses. Jason, Kimberly, and Billy are the primary focus of the film, while Trini and Zack get only a few key moments to shine. That's an issue that a lot of ensemble-oriented superhero movies contend with these days, but as it's already been established in real life, a TV series centering on the Power Rangers wouldn't have that issue.

With considerably more story real estate to work with, a TV update could easily flesh out each of these characters over the course of a season and give the audience very specific reasons for empathizing with each of them. That's what made the original series work so well in the first place.
