I've always liked origin stories, and PR is no exception. Part of what draws into certain teams are how they formed, some were done nicely, others not so much. Let's talk about them, or just make a list.
My favorites are (in no particular order):
Dino Thunder - I thought this one brought the characters together in a timely manner as well as explaining how everything worked. We also had time to meet the characters and learn about who they are.
Ninja Storm - Same sorts of reasons as Dino Thunder, but in half the time. Everything was set up nicely and the character's first use of the powers was great.
Time Force - This one really hit you hard in terms of what the stakes were for everyone. Very different from My previous two. In this one it seemed more dire and the themes were a bit more mature.
There's a few more I could talk about, but hey, this is a discussion. So? What do you guys think?
Zeo: The Rangers finally shed their old uniforms and fit into something more powerful.
Dino Thunder: This is what Mighty Morphin' should have been. We were able to see how three completely different high school teens set aside their differences and banded together to become Power Rangers.
S.P.D.: Wonderful start to a wonderful season. It definitely broke away from the usual means of making people into Rangers. Having Jack and Z start out as street thieves was great.
Mystic Force: One of my favorite origins. It was nice to see more Rangers with jobs, and they had fun personalities. Udonna was very awesome as the White Ranger.
RPM: High stakes right off the bat. Earth is pretty much conquered. Need I say more? =P
MMPR: Puddles on the Moon. Sentai footage overload. Mighty Morphin' Sterotypes, Go!
Wild Force: Good season but not the strongest of starts.
Samurai: Who are these guys? How did they become Rangers? Where are the pages I can flip back to since I obviously missed something?

MMPR: Simplistic, does what it needs to do, sets the story in motion
Zeo: Epic perfect way to start a new era after 3 years
In Space: By far my favorite, set up the story and the stakes
Turbo: After a movie, it didn't need a 3-parter. Should have been a two-parter
Dino Thunder: I've never wanted to punch so many lead "heroes" in the face before.
Without any particular order my view for all first episodes
1.MMPR: So classic. I never get bored of the first episode. MMPR S2 had the best first episode ever I think
2.Timeforce: Socking start
3.Zeo: At last new powers and new suits. I was so happy about it!
4.Space: Huge mystery with Andros and the rangers in space
5.RPM: I couldn't believe this was Power Rangers
6.LG: Pretty awesome intro. Made me believe that it would be another awesome space season and it was indeed!
7.Wildforce: Reminded me a lot of Tarzan's story,cool
8.Ninja Storm: Loved the show from the start for the happy aura it had. Plus I love ninjas
9.SPD: Space police. Fell in love with it at once!
10.MF: Cool as well. I loved magic and they became pretty well rangers
11.DT: Tommy is back and is gathering rangers!
12.OO: Cool. Indiana Jones style!
13.JF: Had something of Ninja Storm with more serious style. Liked it a lot!
1.Turbo: WTH is Rocky, who is this boy? What??? I must see the movie first?
2.Samurai: It was awesome as episode but not a real first episode and this pissed me off in the forthcoming episodes
3.LR: I just hated the idea of them from the beginning

Time Force: loved how Ransik escaped and Wes had thought it was all a joke.
Dino Thunder: Loved how they were agaisnt it, then just finally became Rangers
SPD: Just an enjoyable two parter. Sky being pissed about his Ranger designation was amusing
RPM: "Can I pick my own color?" Just an awesome way to start the season
-MMPR:For the first season of the series, it's not bad, this season is my preference among the three, I will prefer them to do as Zyuranger
-Dino Thunder: For my favorite season,i love,especially when Tommy is back
I do not know if I have other because for me it is hard to find
lol ryan its not like he was searching for PR just kinda fell in. :P
RPM: Crap man dark, wth is happening,
PRis: Epicness! No idea where they go come across new powers and friends
zeo: The cc blowing up leading them underground for more powers, and the first team suit change!
NS: Pretty sweet
turbo: It could of just used one episode as the intro since the movie was the intro
RPM- Danger and attack from the start.
SPD- Sets up for a great season and lots of possiblies
Time Force- Great opening with Alex's death and the quest into the past.
Lightspeed Rescue- Introduces the rangers skills and great formation episode
Operational Overdrive- Bad Season, Bad start with the whole lets give all the rangers super powers.
Samurai- Complete Sentai cut and paste which doesn't very make sense in Western Culture
