Will Judd Lynn's Downright Crash Be With Power Rangers Ninja Steel?
Writer's burnout is inevitable. Just think about how long Lynn himself was involved. He took over the second half of Power Rangers Turbo. He made his debut as the head writer of Power Rangers in Space. Then he continued on with Power Rangers Lost Galaxy, Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue, Power Rangers Time Force and took over the second half of Power Rangers RPM. Then he's assigned to Power Rangers Dino Charge. You can compare that situation to how Hirohisa Soda was an innovative writer from Goggle V up to Fiveman. After seven seasons of pretty good contribution he burned out during Turboranger and Fiveman was a flop. Toshiki Inoue burned out pretty bad during Kamen Rider Kiva. Yasuko Kobayashi burned out pretty bad during ToQGer. For the good they did for their genres they burned out so bad they undid themselves.
Right now, it's best to keep a low bar for Ninja Steel. Dino Charge started showing signs of Lynn no longer in top condition. It's almost like how Liveman's later quarter was losing its edge. Next year, it's best to expect him to run out of good ideas on how to keep the script going. As said, be ready for eventual declines in just about everything!
I guess it's time for me to be glad that Kayla Coffland didn't make it. Ninja Steel but become Ninja Rubber anytime soon with Lynn no longer in top condition. Just think... Fiveman nearly canceled Super Sentai. ToQGer's ratings were lower than its predecessor Kyoryuger and Ninninger's not doing any better. Kamen Rider Kiva is already considered hit or miss. Will Ninja Steel soon be that era that will cause a fan favorite to eventually burn out so bad he'll undo himself?
