Beast Morphers: Episode 02 - "Evox's Revenge"


Evox's Revenge
Airs: Saturday, March 9th @ 08:00 AM on Nick

And here I thought "______'s Revenge" titles were saved for much later in a show's run.

---Standard Episode Discussion Rules---

1) Do NOT ask for downloads. Hasbro does not want us posting episode encodes here, so you're not allowed to talk about them at all. You will be warned at first, but repeated asking will result in an infraction. Episodes go live legally on Nick's app in the US, and can be watched there.

2) The thread will remain closed until the episode finishes airing. We do this to prevent play-by-play discussion. You'd be amazed to see how large a thread can get when everyone and their mother decides to post about each individual line dialogue or action of an individual. They threads can be tricky to navigate and we don't need them to be even trickier with tons of extra pages at the beginning. Rest assured that within a couple of minutes of the credits rolling the thread will be opened for all.

Note: If two new episodes air back-to-back there will be one thread opened at the conclusion of the second episode.

3) Do NOT start another thread. There is one thread for each episode. It will be created by a moderator and stickied to the top of the page prior to the episode airing so that it can be quickly opened for discussion. In the off chance that we are late or you're just too antsy to talk about the episode, please do not start another thread. It will be closed immediately and you will most likely receive an infraction.

4) Expect Spoilers It's going to happen folks, it's an episode discussion.
Spoilers are to be expected for Beast Morphers episodes, summaries, descriptions, cast list, and more. What we get about Power Rangers Beast Morphers is fair game.
However if you wish to talk about what happens in Go-Busters episodes not yet adapted by Beast Morphers, then you need to go use the Super Sentai of the Past thread to do so. No bringing up episodes that have only aired overseas, either. Use the international discussion thread for that, and stick to this episode.

If there are any further questions by all means ask away.

They brought back... previously on Power Rangers instead of narration? I am VERY okay with that.

This was another good episode. We had some conflict that wasn't because of some spell or something. It was actually just rangers having a disagreement, even letting it get in the way of their fights. And the ending was predictable, but it was enjoyable and it made sense. Devon and Blaze's rivalry is so great after last year's "Rivialry" kind of sucking. ("How about another another karate lesson?" "There's plenty I can teach you" Was such a good exchange) And Devon actually earned his leader title. That's a really good thing to add it. It's not automatically "Red=Leader"

They actually kept the weaknesses, and I like that. They changed Devon's from chickens to dogs, which is a little less goofy, and it has a good reason. They made them all come out at once in a way that went pretty smooth. Evox corrupted them enough to cause glitches. Devon freezing when he sees dogs because he has cat DNA is thinking I can appreciate. Just like carrots refueling Zoey instead of candy.

I already love the Beast Bots. All of them have good voices, and I wanna see more of them already. And I also like the new villain. (Scrozzle?) He seems interesting. And I wanna see who he's running from. I wish Blaze had some kind of Morph Call or a sequence like the others, but his morph was still pretty cool. He and Roxy actually got their keys used in the show.

And once again, I actually do like Ben and Betty. They do their best to help, and they're just not good at it, no matter how hard they try. It's also a good thing that they're not JUST security guards, they do odd jobs around the base. That makes sense.

I was hoping Kelson would be a certain other Beast Bot, but him as Cruise is great too.

Good follow up episode. Not quite as great as last week, but still good.

Dear Hasbro,

What are you doing? Two weeks in a row and two good episodes? Don’t you realize that you’re supposed to create terrible episodes?

If the remainder of the season is half as good as the first two episodes, it’ll still be twice as good as Ninja Steel. And that’s not an exaggeration.

Anyway…

1.) I laughed at Ben and Betty. A comedic duo which… is incorporated into the story? I’m absolutely shocked.
2.) Those unmorphed fight scenes had great choreography. Was that all American footage? (It’s been a while since I watched Gobusters).
3.) I don’t like the voice of whatever Nick’s American name is. However, I much prefer the Beast Bots voices to Robo Knight’s metallic, Robocop light’s voice.
4.) Ravi is still the weakest actor. Devon and Zoey continue to amaze.
5.) Blaze does the evil ranger right. Even though we’re only two episodes in, probably the best we’ve ever had on that front.
6.) I’m surprised they didn’t edit out “Enertron” in the zord cockpicks. Minor quibble.
7.) Why would a cheetah be scared of a dog? That… doesn’t make any sense. Might as well kept the chicken.
8.) What happened to the MOTW? Unless I missed something, he wasn’t destroyed. He just… disappeared?
9.) You can tell the Gobusters footage is old. It seems Hasbro tried to shy away from some of the CGI, which is good.

Not as good as last week IMO, but still a solid episode.

Keep 'em coming, episodes like these. Where I can just watch 'em and I'm pleasantly surprised.

THEY ADAPTED THE WEAKNESSES AND MADE THEM FIT THE ANIMAL NARRATIVE! So good! It was gonna cut out a good chunk of footage if they didn't.

...Ben and Betty have contributed and added to the show more than Victor and Monty did. I know, hurr durr low bar, but they HELPED. And the shock thing was kinda funny!

The Beast Bots, love 'em, they're basically like the Japanese counterparts so far.

And the best thing about the Cheeta Blaster? Literally a second of footage. <3

Just...keep at it, Beast Morphers. Stay good, consistent PR pls.

Evox's Revenge.

This was great from beginning to end. Amazingly, for once, the Rangers actually let the comic relief characters tag along, even though they're not part of the team. Also, it didn't take very long for them to find out the Rangers' identities. Others had to wait until near the end of the season. When Nate handed Zoey the carrot, and she nibbled it, I thought, "If she says, 'What's up, doc?', I'm leaving." Thankfully, she didn't.

This series looks to be the greatest one yet.

Things just keep getting better.

- The focus was mainly on the leader aspect and it worked pretty well
- Zoey and Ravi's fight was clearly predicted from us
- The more I see Ben and Betty, they remind me of Boom and Clare and they actually interact with the team, showing that there's more to their characters then just comic relief, even though that was clearly the dimensional remote from DiD
- Blaze and Roxy in the other dimension remind me of Drakken and Shego, so far their acting could improve the most
- Scoggle has the exact same voice as Frax
- I thought it was funny how a dog scared Devon at first and the actual reasoning for why they acted so differently was done pretty well since the animal DNA was corrupted
- The music was done pretty well, although some scenes could've been better
- The morphing sequence was beautiful and we didn't see the grey zord room

Overall, the episode was great and it has room for more potential. 4/5

Campbell Cooley is Scrozzle
Kelson is Cruise
Charlie McDermott (Bigs in Megaforce as well as several MotW) is Smash
Emmett Skilton (Professor Strickler, Dreadwolf, Stabberous) is Jax

I'm so happy to actually look forward to Power Rangers again! Beast Morphers episode 2 was great! The comic relief proved themselves so well!

And that was a nice way to adapt the weaknesses.


Calling it now, the robot guy mentioned will either replace Evox or become his body.

Simple "Cats are scared of dogs" logic. It makes more sense than the chicken, really.

This is why I'm glad they kept the Go Busters cockpit. (Even if it does give Devon a Zyuoh Elephant helmet. )

If they keep it like that, I can live with zord footage again.

Ben and Betty are my favorite part of the show by far, I think they have great on screen chemistry and they mesh well in almost every scene, I found myself wanting to see more and more of them.

I'm glad they changed Red and Yellow's weaknesses the way they did. Dogs and Carrots make more sense than Chickens and sweets.

Episode was amazing. "Previously on" instead of a narration? Yes, please, yeeeees.
Conflict between the Rangers? Oh, yeeees.
Devon being a natural leader and solving problems while Ravi and Zoey were fighting? Yes.
The weaknesses? Oh, when I say Devon frezzing because of a dog I was like: "Noooo, oh my God, YEEEEES, they kept them!".
They barely used sentai footage in the Tronic's fight scene. I only saw it when Ravi went bananas (pun intended) and in the zord battle (and when they deployed the zords too, cause in the background they left the "GT-02" and that.).
Ben and Betty being helpfull? This is how you do it. And they really made me laught. Kristina's acting was better than last week. More natural.
Jazz's acting is still the most weak of all of them.

5/5 for me. Better than last week.

Yup! But done so much better, IMO.

Sans Blue's overheating, but we need more episodes to see how far they'd take it.

I get what they were going for, but a cheetah has no reason to fear a dog.

The two don't normally interact, and a dog isn't going to prey on a cheetah. If anything, it's the dog which would be scared of the cheetah, as more than likely the cheetah would consider the dog a nice source of food.
