Lt. Stone was the best thing to happen to Bulk and Skull. Detective Stone was not, at least not in those episodes where he's on the same level as them.
But he wasn't on the same level, he was still their boss. He obviously needed them more because he was a private contractor, but dude still signed their checks.

It wasn't until the job offer in France that they were truly equals.

The dynamic is spoilt. It wasn't too much of an issue in Zeo, because as the agency struggles to stay in business, Dt. Stone becomes more like his Lt. role, regaining his 'bite' that made him work so well in S3.
The detective setup was great though. The problem was production's failure to do anything meaningful with it. Their greatest adventures as detectives happen off screen.

There was something really funny about those two slackers making Stone look incompetent. Comedy requires a certain amount of subversion, after hundreds of episodes of B&S being talked down to it was great to see their stupidity rub off on others. It's the same reason I love the Rito & Goldar sitcom.

There's a few scenes where he emphasizes with B&S, which spoils the dynamic. Like I said, it's not too much of an issue in Zeo, because he reverts back to the hard boss. In fact, those empathy scenes actually work quite nicely to enrich Stone's character and the trio's relation, which is why the final France scene is so good.

But although those scenes work in Zeo, they also clearly illustrate why a third man (who's not on their case) is a bad idea.

B&S had a clearly defined dynamic. Bulk comes up with schemes. Skull executes them, but also supports Bulk's ego, allowing him to continue despite the constant failure.

Stone works because he keeps B&S on their toes, so their roles are enhanced.

With Pheonomous, he often provides the plan. This robs Bulk of his role, but it also robs Skull of supporting Bulk's ego (because it's not Bulk's fault if Pheonomous' plan failed).

It's like those moments in Zeo, where Dt. Stone empathizes with Bulk. It spoils Skull's purpose because that's his job. Like I said, in Zeo, it's not an issue, because Dt. Stone has his hard boss moments (and there's the whole enriching thing).

But Pheonomous never has a mean boss side like Dt. Stone. He was just the wacky guy that B&S went along with. The writers should have known that this wouldn't work.

The Bulk and Skull with Boldar and Rito sitcom was so funny to watch, the all both lost there memories, and even when they revover they find Bulk and Skull was so funny to see the dynamic between them, I liked much to see Detectives plot, with the Lt.Stone which them became a Trio even they try to hind both Rito and Goldar.

Imagine alone Bulk and Skull Tv show when they meet Rito and Goldar

PR Ninja Steel ! "Game Plan","Attack Of The Galactic Ninjas","The Need For Speed"

The students of Summer Cove come under the influence of a new video game, unaware that the monster inside is using their high scores to super charge himself and trap the Rangers. Now Mick and Levi have to figure out how to get the other rangers out.

The Rangers are attacked by the new, mysterious group called the Galactic Ninjas, beginning with their leader Wolvermean when he steals Preston, Hayley, Brody and Sarah's memories of being ninja rangers.

Sarah tries to break the record for the fastest hover board by using strange, alien technology left behind by Galactic Ninja Speedwing.

Interesthing they bring the Galactic Ninjas for the Galaxy Warriors since they were much a group of Four Monters which everyone had there special ability and The Galactic Ninjas and which one use the Power of diferent medalians and Galactic Ninjas bringing bringmemories of the Five Fingers of Poison from Jungle Fury, and can is possible even the Villans really act better then the Rangers...
