Just wanted to let y’all know that the guy who plays Ben also voices the Robotron in this episode
Watching the scene again, it's kinda cool seeing Cosme do VA work. Maybe he can earn more roles doing VA in the future series.

Good debut for Gold and Silver. Steel is already on his way to being my favorite character.

Some good gags, good action. A good episode. It's going to be a long wait.

It goes without saying that a scarab isn't a stag beetle either. Other than that, it looks like we're entering the hiatus on a good note.

Would have been nice to have a Thunder Rangers call back and just call them stag bettle and insectazord since they're the same bugs the Thunder Rangers had.

You know, if I had to pick my two favorite zords, they'd be

The Falcon Zord

That's why I can't help but love RPM in cases like this.

Bandai tried to call it a falcon for the toys but in show they immediately said, "No, it's a chicken."

*sighs* Mantis? Mantis? Whoever came up with this needs to be fired.

Anyway!! Wow!! Gold and Silver's debut got to be the best ever. Best 6th Ranger introduction ever in a long time. Steel is awesome.

Ben and Betty were pretty useful in this episode and how they handled pretty good, using the track so the Rangers will be able to find and rescue Nate.

I would definitely watch this over and over.

Best episode and I would have to give this 5 stars.

So, officially the damn fucking long hiatus has started. UGH.

While Steel may be a Stag Beetle or a Mantis, from the way he acts, he mostly reminds me of a Tick. Which isn't far off from how J acted, so it works.

Nate isn't meek and passive at all, though? He's made it very clear he hates being seen as weak and not being taken seriously, and he's not afraid to let that known (even yelling at Commander Shaw for insisting he can't leave without a buddy). Or when he was firm about Ravi not using the neutralizer gadget to make Avatar Roxy good again. The only time he's really been "shy" is regarding his crush on Zoey, and even then that could just be interpreted as him trying to get around the "no dating rangers" rule. Just because he's the smart guy doesn't automatically make him a doormat.

And honestly, I don't understand the vitriol over changing the bug at all. It's really not that big of a deal. Especially since, in my opinion, the "horns" of the gold ranger helmet can easily be seen as a stylized mantis head (they both have that triangular shape).

Fantastic episode, and so satisfying after all the drama regarding Blake. And I already adore Steel.

Yeah there’s no way that suit or zord could logically pass as a mantis.

Made worse by the fact that they literally showed a Mantis in this episode, which further showed they look nothing alike.

Maybe to you, but as I said, I personally can see a mantis head in the gold helmet's "horn." It's a stylized version, sure, but I can see the correlation between the triangular shape of the horns and the triangular shape of a mantis head.

As for the Zord, I don't think the Zord really looks like anything, mantis OR beetle, lol.

If one day Steel will learn some ninja techniques of fight, then will he want to call himself Ninja Steel?

Maybe if we get a Ninja Steel crossover (which is unlikely), but it would be funny.

Hmm, pretty good overall. But really? The Mantis thing was bad enough, but they felt the need to change Stage Beetle to Scarab too? What goes on in the heads of the people behind PR?

Hearing Nate's dialogue over the top of Jin's mannerisms was weird, especially the casual sword toss before the finisher, but I guess I'll get used to it.

Steel's voice is alright, but I was hoping for a deep deadpan one like J. J's delivery was part of what made his dialogue fo sunny. Still, Steel's OTT action hero voice is fitting in its own way.

The twist with Nate's DNA was interesting, and a good explanation of why Steel can morph. I do wonder what their full morph next week is going to look like. Are we going to get roaring bug heads? Are they going to keep Steel's armour flying on to Nate like in GoBusters?

Yeah, I'm also interested to see what their morph sequence looks like, and how they'll use the keys in their morphers. (If they do?)

But we're in the hiatus now, so it's gonna be a long wait to find out.

Mmm... sushi and donburi... that restaurant sign in the background is totally a hint!

Contrast Nate with Ben and Betty here. The latter pair gets to run amok in the city even during times of danger, but the former requires a protective escort. I guess Commander Shaw really knows the value of the boy genius while the General subconsciously doesn't have as much confidence in his children. Or just doesn't know. Or just doesn't care. But this episode did justice to the twins' antics: even when they didn't realize it, they were being helpful with their inadvertent tracking device (and their acrobatic balancing act... really, with that athletic ability, they should be capable of something).

Whereas Nate? He's getting K-lite syndrome (fortunately, very lite) after being locked away and wanting a family. The episode showed, not just told, the real necessity for Nate needing protection, as Blaze and Roxy targeted their "daddy" (and Blaze was getting a bit hands-on...). It really came together with Nate turning his desires into action and taking advantage of a bad situation. Great pair, though brothers aren't always what they're cracked up to be - they're already doing the J thing, with Steel getting in Nate's way, and exaggerating that self-glorified dialogue. Robots, gotta love 'em, right?

As for Scrozzle, brilliant use of his planning, with things he's stolen in previous episodes building up to his Evox Return plan. (Even with parts of Steel's body visible in previous episode backgrounds.)

IMO worst new Ranger debut in PR history, Steel has a generic robot voice, the explanation for Steel Morphing is Lame, Nate just doesn't work as a Ranger, Worst Beast Morphers episode yet 1 star

How? He's literally the only Beast Bot without a generic robot filter on his voice.

Again, how?
