Oh good, "Evox's Revenge" is not "Trakeena's Revenge".

The important part of the episode is reimagining Go-Busters elements, because they're going to come up semi-frequently. Having it tied to Evox's corruption of the DNA retains the thematics of having it be part of an innate weakness that goes with the laws of the universe not necessarily being helpful to humans, while also presenting a plausible explanation. As for Blaze and Roxy, it could mean anything - their weakness might be tied to the dependence on their original bodies, or it might be their visual glitches of avatars. The other part is the Zords, not having them combine yet, and instead having them work as separate mechanical units as the team comes together.

On that point, the issue of leadership was handled well. Thinking of leader as a glorified title instead of a role of responsibility is what was the primary cause, and interacting with the team members' less-than-perfect personalities actually created some drama - Ravi's seniority and pride versus Zoey's visionary attitude and naivety clashed. Whereas Devon took a cool stance and actually led, so accepting that when the others came to their realization was organically handled.

Then there's the bots. The Best Bot voices are on point, and having them in their support role is a good compensation for the weaknesses. The other robot, Scrozzle, fulfills a different role, and certainly has ambitions, being a sort of competitor for Blaze and Roxy.

Nate's made himself important to the story, and even if he isn't joining in on the final scene with the team-building group hug, he does his part with his analytical mind. Ben and Betty deserve their positions, even with their comedic goof-ups, they are well-intentioned and did something positive for the team.

I don't know why it's such a big deal that Devon's weakness is from the cheetah being scared of dogs. Cheetahs are actually very nervous animals that get anxious really easily. It's honestly not that big of a stretch that the DNA would react like that. If you guys wanted to be picky and bring real-life biology into this, you should point out how carrots actually have very low nutritional value for rabbits, lol.
A cheetah would massacre a dog in real life.

Just watched it, im really satisfied so far. However it still does have some of the stench of neo saban that bugs me.

The good:
-Rangers have conflict without being under a spell? Sign me up.
-The sentai footage.. specifically the zords.. are awesome! How did bandai think this was unsellable?
-The commander is bad ass. Love her.
-the beast bots are funny and have great personalties so far.
-I guess ravi really doesnt like expressing emotions. Flawed characters? Yes!
-Yellow Ranger is a ball of energy.
-Devon is pretty cool.

The bad (just my opinions)
-The music is still crap
-The monster voices are horrible
-The instamorphs are nice but give us a proper morphing sequence.
-It’s morphin time needs to die. “Activate beast power” & “unleash the beast” is fine and more than enough.
-Ben & Betty. They Just seem unneeded to me but whatever
-When we can see the insides of their helmets. Dont really need that either unless it’s a real serious battle. Hope they dont overdo it like they did in ninja steel.
-A cheetah would not be afraid of a dog.



Can’t wait for ep 3!

So "Virus eliminated" is our new victory catchphrase?

It has familiar vibes like "Monster extinct", short and works with theme of the season.

Sigh... It's so nice to actually ENJOY Rangers again. I mean, Dino Charge wasn't BAD, but it could have been better. Samurai played it safe. The less said about Megaforce and Ninja Steel, the better.

Finally, the first truly awesome season since RPM. GOD, it's been a while.

By any chance you're not confusing the guy from The Middle are you because those are two different people in you were.

I don't know man, my house keys give me the ability to open doors. If that's not being a super hero I don't know what is.

The show isn't trying to claim all keys have the ability to make you morph built into them. It's trying to say a real life animal must be afraid of another real life animal because animal 1 is related to an animal that is. It's like saying sharks are afraid of penguins because they eat fish.

I was in the same boat too even looking on Wikipedia until I looked on imdb and figured out what was going on.

The African wild dog is a natural enemy of the cheetah and they chase the cats from their kills. Cheetahs can't afford to get injured since they need to be able to run at top speed to hunt so they typically flee from the dogs rather than attack them.

Which is where "it's a kid's show" argument comes in.

I know that's not an excuse for everything, but in this case it's a reasonable. It's not that huge of a problem. Power Rangers isn't supposed to be completely believable.

It's not even saying a real life cheetah is scared of dogs, it's saying that the cheetah DNA in Devon's system is causing him to freeze at the sight of dogs. If they had an actual cheetah being scared of an actual dog and running in fear? Yeah, it'd be more of a problem.

I don't know why people are hung up on this cheetah/dog situation. Logic went out the window in PR since Day of the Dumpster. I'm just satisfied they bother explaining why Devon froze at all because we could've gotten

Devon: Why did my suit freeze?

Nate: There's a simple explanation for that

BOOM!
