"THINGS NOT SAID" (PR-1525): Clever n' Creepy

Yep, doesn't take much to sum up this one...

We finally see that Mack -- the best Red Ranger we've had in years -- is not human, but rather an android Hartford created. Seeing him malfunction and his head detached was pretty creepy. It is great the show is doing this, though. We all knew it was coming, but the youngins may not get it...

Unlike Time Force, there's a decent excuse for why there's no mother this season. Even Hartford admitted he couldn't get a woman. Mack's response about him "making one" was funny.

Why is it always the Dark Shadow monsters that PR zips through? -_-

Eh, for a second I thought the ninjas would actually keep the jewel. Darn Ronny's super-speed.

I'd say this was the best battlizer episode since "SHANE'S KARMA, I and II." The way it was written -- with Rose having developed technology that was going to be used to add power to zords and that it couldn't be used by a normal human -- was pretty cool. And it doesn't look bad either, although Sentinel Knight talking was weird as hell. Spencer and the Rangers were great too.

And Mack was definitely about as sick of Hartford as we were by the end of the ep. Seriously, how much was Bruce drinking when Rod Lousich was casted? ...And again when the character was developed? O_o

Even though this wasn't a bad ep, I'm really realizing that I've enjoyed the show way too long and have been giving it too much respect...

"RONNY ON EMPTY, I and II" (PR-1523-1524): Halloween Havoc

Part I was pretty decent, but I didn't think Part II was as good and could've been better.

I liked how the Rangers fought the FearKitties and Moltor -- and Ronny and Will were captured.

The intro for BattleFleet was just okay... Nowhere near the importance the mecha gets in sentai. And the new Megazord looks sweet. One of those times I wish I had seen the sentai first (which I absolutely plan on doing with Geki/Jungle Fury).

Oh, how I hate Hartford. >_<

Norg "helping" Will... Oh boy.

Ronny regained her energy awfully quick, as did Sentinel Knight returning to normal. Meh.

That egg just... came outta nowhere.

While I thought Halloween was a bit odd for an episode subplot, the party scene at the end was great.

And Mack is a robot. Check.

Part I: 4/5, Part II: 3/5
