Well after I have seen how much more polished Shinkenger Arc in Kamen Rider Decade, I wanted to bring out this major flaw in "A Friend in Need" in MMPR. Now MMPR started the experiment of actually bringing KR/SS crossover from the stage to the TV set. The stage shows were very mixed... this one tried to narrow down the concept but... the major problem was that Kimberly was sick. If Amy Jo Johnson saw the Decade/Shinkenger crossover, she's most likely going to comment that bad writing was one reason why she left the series.... and I'd probably do the same in her place!
What was terribly wrong? Aside from BAD EDITING, all the terrible cheesy acting and Saban's Masked Rider was terrible, TERRIBLE and TERRIBLE and unfortunately, Decade IMO is just as terrible and neither show deserves to be rewatched IMO. Now, I'd like to point out the whole Kimberly is sick scenario... which renders her helpless and almost useless. In short, the crossover is filled with bad writing and Kimberly being sick is one of the many reasons why it's horrible! Plus, the crossover was full of loose ends too. Shuki Levy is really Saban's own version of Shoji Yonemura! And I mean, please don't even let these two meet at all!
