Super Sentai is a Long-running live-action Japanese Sentai franchise by the Toei Company based around a Good Guy Group of transforming heroes armed with Massive Battle Robots.
Unlike many American shows, each season is treated as its own series, introducing a new team, new costumes, a new setup, and new mecha. Each series has a unique Verse disjoint from the others, and the teamup movies are often considered non-canon, though they appear to occupy their own side universe. The 35th anniversary series Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger is the first series to take place in this universe where all Sentai exist which I personally consider the "Canon version".
Since 1993, each Super Sentai series from the previous year has been adapted for American and global audiences in the form of a lame show known as "Power Rangers", using a multi-ethnic cast and splicing in the combat and mecha footage (often with many changes). This changed to two years after the 2010 hiatus in which a "reversion" of Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers was aired instead of an adaptation of the previous year's Sentai.
The addition of mecha to the series was made with the third installment, Battle Fever J, which was originally intended as an adaptation of Captain America.
This is actually where the "Super" in "Super Sentai" comes from; for years Goranger and J.A.K.Q. were just called "Sentai" and not counted in chronologies until the 25th anniversary with Gaoranger, Amazing really.
Super Sentai is usually contrasted with Kamen Rider, another action franchise by the same corporation, with a similar deal but no mecha and far more serious stories. The two franchises met (canonically) on-screen for the first time in an episode of Kamen Rider Decade featuring the Shinkenger team, with Decade making a brief cameo in a Shinkenger episode beforehand.
Did I forget to mention May 2012 saw the release of Kamen Rider X Super Sentai Superhero Taisen, a full-fledged crossover between the two franchises with 240 heroes joining forces. The star on the Super Sentai side will be Captain Marvelous/Gokai Red, with the other Gokaiger and the Go-Busters playing a prominent role.
