Default One thing that bothers me in DinoThunder

Tommy as a Palentologist? It just seems so out of character and out of left field. Last we saw him he was trying to become a rac car driver. Which kinda didn't fit either and if he is such a big palentologist.... What is he doing teaching at a High School?

Billy leaving for Aquitar didn't fit either... so we really can't say anything about Tommy's career choice in Dino Thunder.

I still say it was all a cover for a Hexagon operation. Tommy didn't have a real doctorate and was just waiting for the right students to get chosen by the Dino Gems.

I always though Tommy would start his own martial arts school. Like JDF actually did.

I lke to think that Troy was mentored by Tommy. He taught him martial arts as a kid but Troy didn't know he was a Ranger until the SM Finalie.

Well maybe Tommy changed his mind sometime after he left. The storyline was made up to impress fans who stopped watching the show during the Turbo season.

That's pretty realistic. Plenty of people change their minds when they get older plus we never saw Tommy have much of a career path outside of race car driving. Tommy's time as a Ranger probably inspired him to become a palentology major.

Tommy doesn't strike me as the type to study Palenthology or earn a doctorate.

He was mainly studying morphology. Palentology was just a related field partly due to the Power Coins and Dino Gems plus he had to know about the Energems.

Yeah it was kinda weird and seemed a little much. I would have rather have seen Edward Payne be in the role. Tommy could have been a guest star if they wanted him back so bad. I don't think it was needed since DinoThunder was at its best in the episodes that didn't focus on Dr. Oliver.
