"Abridged", you say? Well, if every series was filled with eps like "Abridged", then the quality of eps would never be in question.

Oh, right. Shrinking down the seasons...I'll give this a look...

As co-creator of the third episode I took the liberty of rescoring it as well as retooling the sound effects. I think it came out rather nicely.

The guy who introduced the Ranger fandom to the concept of "Five-Minute" parodies, aka Fivers, says... Well done!

Aside from the music, this didn't really grab me. It seems more like a children's parody or something South Park would create.

I do like some of the jokes you have though. The mentioning of the zords not all being dinosaurs was clever and the clothes matching the powers was funny, as was Jason morphing by saying "Belt Buckle". but the rest was very bland. You have too many moments of silence and not enough foley work.

Good shot though, you have a knack for voices.

It feel like its missing some sounds i some parts like when Green Ranger jumps while fighting the Megazord a "Hya" or something would have been nice.

It was real fun working on this one. Just try to cut down on the fight scenes, will ya? It's a pain editing all those sound effects. Though I did have fun with the final Dragonzord/Godzilla battle, hehe.

Great job with Scorpina, Manos. Her delivery was perfect, especially with the "Oh my God. I have a tail. I hate everything!" line.

I crack every time I watch Tommy pop in the Megazord's cockpit and yells, "I didn't wash my hands!" before assaulting the other Rangers.

Never, ever watch Abridged. It's like one of those awful parody films where someone dressed up as a recent movie character says they're a recent movie character, farts, and then scampers off camera. One episode actually has just 45 seconds of black screen set to the "The Bad Touch". Mike could fart into a microphone and paste it over Jason and it would be basically the same thing. (Episode 5 idea?)

Great job with the dialogue in this episode, Manos. I love the banter between Squatt and Baboo in the opening scene. Trini's lines were great, too.

"Eighty nine cent cheesy double beef burrito!"

On my side of things, I'd planned on the "DragonZord = Godzilla" joke only being for Episode 4, but I figured what the heck, this is a spoof, why not make him Godzilla for the whole thing?

Fun fact: I actually do Squatt and Baboo in the same take. I think that's why they flow so well.

Great job with the dialogue as usual, Manos. Love the disclaimer at the end.

Not too bad, just not overly interesting...... As a Gamecocks fan and Stanley Kubrick fan the first song was a great start. Honestly all the music was good, I just didn't dig the material. Just me. Still cool you did that though.
