** Then Saban got it back and struck a deal to have it aired on {{Nickelodeon}} and {{Nicktoons}}. Once Saban bought out FourKidsEntertainment, they took advantage of the included [[TheCW CW]] programming block and immediately scheduled ''Power Rangers'' as part of the {{Vortexx}} launch lineup.

*** Linkara makes a point in his History of Power Rangers show highlighting potential trouble behind the scenes including a mismanaged budget. This leads him to believe that showrunner Jonathan Tzachor did not leave willingly and was fired.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Many seasons have examples of this for one reason or another, but one example stands out just for it's sheer size. In over two decades, there has been only one season of Super Sentai to be [[NoExportForYou skipped over when it came time for adaptation]]: ''TokumeiSentaiGobusters''. Amit Bhaumik, probably best known for the MilestoneCelebration ''Forever Red'', had an entire story outline prepared for it, too; one he called ''[[http://amitbhaumik.tumblr.com/post/78152321594/power-rangers-cyber-corps-aka-power-rangers-21 Power Rangers: Cyber Corps.]]''

** There's been speculation that Megaforce and Super Megaforce suffered this, due to baffling production decisions.It is known that production was delayed several months with auditions being shut down only to resume a few months later. The official statement was the series still needed work. Speculation exists that originally Tensou Sentai Goseiger would have been the only series adapted. with the addition of Kaizoku sentai Gokiager footage being used many speculate this led to many last minute decisions that heavily show.

** The most notable aversion was in ''Lightspeed Rescue''. Rhett Fisher (Ryan/Titanium Ranger) was literally the exact same age as his character, starting off 19 and turning 20 a few episodes in.

** The most notable aversion was in ''Lightspeed Rescue''. Rhett Fisher (Ryan/Titanium Ranger) was literally the exact same age as his character, starting off 19 and turning 20 a few episodes in. Interestingly, he's actually 2 months younger than Dana's actress Alison [=MacInnis=] despite being the older brother. But since both characters looked their parts (late teens/early 20s) it worked just fine.

** Amy Jo Johnson (Kimberly) actually had a gymnastics career before joining the castcast. David Yost (Billy) was a gymnast as well, and you can tell costuming had a hard time downplaying his athleticism.
** Nakia Burrise (Tanya) and Emma Lahana (Kira) both got to showcase their singing.

* TroubledProduction: ''Lost Galaxy'' got the worst of it. This largely had to do with the production team trying to figure out how to adapt a nature-themed sentai into a space opera so that it followed in the vein of the highly successful ''In Space'', meaning a lot of the series was pretty much thrown together on the fly, which probably gave the writers a huge headache. Not to mention the fact that the actress Valerie Vernon, who played Kendrix, being diagnosed with leukemia during filming and having to lead the show, leading to even more hasty re-writes as they quickly scrambled to negotiate a replacement pink ranger who could be written into the remainder of the season. Also, Cassie was originally slated to return to fill in Kendrix's shoes, but actress Patricia Ja Lee was said to have been very disappointed at being ''considerably'' lower-paid than the rest of the cast; things got even worse when she found out that she would only be cited in the opening credits as a guest-star even though her character was being brought back to be onscreen full-time. Of course, that situation with Patricia Ja Lee wasn't the only case of drama behind the scenes. *Ahem* Danny Slavin, hoo boy....
** If ''Lost Galaxy'' had it worse, then ''RPM'' was a strong second if not topping it. An adaptation meant to be geared towards an older audience going off of goofy sentai footage, by a newcomer executive producer who fully understood the near impossible task of turning this goofy material into something more serious. There were plenty of rumors about the show's production issues which may or may not have been true, but regardless, there's a very minimal amount of Sentai footage, meaning things had to be more tight, and meant there were some serious issues in how to use the sentai footage by comparison. Then the producer was fired midway through, forcing an old pro Judd Lynn to step in and help try to fulfill what Eddie had put in place, while still giving the series his own vision. And on top of all that, the executives were utterly dismissive of the show at this point, meaning they had to work with less sympathetic ears to making the show work.
