Don't let the title fool you
Don't let the word "VS" in the title and the narrator's "Which side do you choose" fool you, this season doesn't have a fair competition between two team as you would expect from a "versus series". There's no equal footing between two teams or even a concrete rivalry.
Instead, one team keeps gaining more and more advantages, while the other keeps struggling to even complete their mission. One team obviously has the central role in the story while the other serves as a pseudo-rival / obstacle for them to either overcome or eventually team up with. Basically, you can take out an entire team, replace them with common people doing their job and the story and its structure wouldn't change much.
All in all, as a season where there are one "main" team who get most of the relevancy and a sub-team who gives minor rivalry and will eventually teams up with the main team, this season is slightly above average in the Super Sentai standard (this is a compliment).
As a "versus" season where two team should have equal advantages and compelling rivalry, however, this season falters and falls on it knees.
