Many centuries ago, the android Peebo and the Bio Robo came to Earth from the fallen Bio Star. The Bio Robo showered five people with the Bio Particles, which would be passed on to later generations. In the present day, Doctor Man and his Shin Teikoku (New Empire) Gear threaten the world. Peebo must find the descendants of the original Bio Particle-showered five to form the Choudenshi (Super Electronic Squadron) Bioman.
"Chodenshi Bioman" is one of those tacky Japanese shows that seem to exist mainly to blow things up. And that's it, really. Stuff gets blown up all the time, while Japanese actors run around and scream hysterically while blabbering some nonsense about robots taking over the world. But that adds to the sheer fun of the show. An episode passes with the speed of a bullet, thanks to some flashy (if incoherent) editing, tons of sound effects and, you guessed it, explosions. It's weird, but in a good way, and this show was an obvious inspiration to the better-looking, but ultimately crappier "Power Rangers". That said, Chodenshi Bioman can best be compared to the early Toho-Godzilla movies. Check it out if you can, even though it may be hard to find.
