RPM #17 "PRISONERS": Go For 'Boom Time'

Great episode. Enjoyed the plot again -- and tied in with more of Dillon's backstory only made it better.

It's moments like Ziggy stumbling to get outta the slave clothes that I really appreciate from the writers. It was cute when he and Summer both called front seat. ^_^

Shadow puppets save the day!

The only complaint has to be Saw-Bot getting defeated quickly after the core 5 had so much trouble with him. An entire episode for this (similar to some of the old ones in the later Saban years) would've been nice -- on the other hand, the more time spent on story is great too.

I kinda like Gem and Gemma always showing up already morphed, but it'll be nice when we finally see their morph and the suits case expands to include them (I'm guessing the big group shot at the at the start of the theme is from the next ep).

I just can't say enough how phenomenal it is how well this shows written and how great these characters are. 5/5.

RPM #16 "IN OR OUT": Aired Out

This episode was well put together, I thought. I liked the attack on the air supply plot.

Loved how Dr. K had something different to say to each Ranger along with giving them hugs and how awkward it was for everyone. Dillon's only there as part of a "work release agreement." Ha. Poor Ziggy. Like how they're undoubtedly building up something between him and K.

Gem and Gemma finishing eachothers sentences is annoying as hell, but I'll get used to it. It's interesting having Rangers who're basically insane. Doing their own sound effects while going over the plan was pretty funny.

I liked how Truman put his foot down with them, but ultimately they were the ones who were right. The others reactions to Gem and Gemma are good as well. No one (but maybe K) likes their attitude.

Liked the use of powers to get out of the dome.

Nice to see Summer lead another morph in Scott's absence.

Ugh, quick zord battles seem even worse when a Megazord is just there suddenly. >_>

RPM #15 "GHOSTS": The Wings of RPM

Pretty much what I expected -- a good, action-packed intro for Series Gold and Silver.

I doubt they'll classify Gem's zord as a falcon, after Flynn's joke about it being a chicken... and hey, they're clearly avoiding naming Ziggy's zord, so why name Gem's?

Perhaps we need more MOTDs with bombs -- then the explosions wouldn't feel so unnecessary. Although it's kinda nice if it's unique for Dyna-Bot.

Great fight scenes for Gem and Gemma, showing off their powers and moves.

It was a bit odd to see Shifter alongside Venjix, when there was no sentai footage which would call for it. And the death of Project Go-Onger was really cheap.

No 5/5 this time, but still a pretty good 4.
