|POWER RANGERS: DINOTHUNDER FINALE COUNTDOWN|
THE BEST EPISODES OF THE SEASON
|Most of the episodes this year were amazing. But 6 episodes stand out as the best:|
1. DAY OF THE DINO [PARTS ONE AND TWO]
I wasn’t expecting much before the premiere of DinoThunder. I went into the premiere thinking that “oh, this is going to be as stupid as Ninja Storm.” But after that one hour, I knew that this season was going be something special. And it was… Day of the Dino introduced us to the 3 best rangers ever, IMO, character-wise and acting wise. James Napier, Emma Lahana, and Kevin Duhaney delivered from the very first time we saw Conner kicking the soccer ball into the goal, hear Kira singing “Freak You Out,” and watch Ethan walking through the sprinklers he set off with an umbrella. Perfect premiere episodes, definitely the best introduction in PR history.
2. THUNDER STORM [PART TWO]
A high point in any PR series is the unmorphed fighting, but it is even better when its unmorphed fighting between rangers! The DinoThunder rangers fought the Ninja Storm rangers, unmorphed and it was a great scene. The action in the episode was perfect, both morphed and unmorphed.
3. HOUSE OF CARDS
All the secrets of DinoThunder were revealed in this episode, plus the long awaited fight between an unmorphed Tommy and Elsa as Principal Randall in a pantsuit, AND in front of the school and students! This episode was the perfect episode before the final episode before the finale.
4. FIGHTING SPIRIT
One of the most serious episodes in PR history. I think this was only the 2nd time in PR history that a character was shown in the hospital, and Tommy was ready to die, the doctor even told them flat out that he didn’t have much time. It was also a pretty cool flashback to Mighty Morphin, Zeo, and Turbo even though all five seasons of those teams sucked.
5. LEGACY OF POWER
This was the 500th episode of Power Rangers and we got treated to clips from all 11 seasons. It was a great tribute and was a bridge between two other great episodes “Wave Goodbye” and “Back in Black.”
