   Okay, first off, I can't believe they dug up SSSS and used anything from it. I mean, we're talking about a series where the transformation sequence was based on the protagonist strumming a power chord, the female lead saying something that made you think the character wanted to be a cheerleader, and the third character saying a non sequitur (until he was replaced by a generic airhead surfer.)

Really, the live-action visuals and characterization felt like they were leftovers from an 80s high school show.

I think it would have to be. It sounds like they didn't have much to work with, so they built on the weakness until it was a strength.
