Episode analysis
at Revisiting Power Rangers


  • Tommy was able to tell the time by glancing at his communicator, which had no displays with which to show the time. (05:27)
  • After the basketball rolls to a stop, Squatt and Baboo are shown along with Shellshock, who smacks away two daggers flying at him. (07:47)
  • After the Rangers morph, Squatt and Baboo are again shown along with Shellshock, who smacks away two daggers flying at him. (08:06)
  • During their talk with Goldar, Squatt and Baboo were shown walking in front of the Monstermatic, which is in another room. (09:36)
  • After Rita had woken up to talk with Squatt and Baboo about their monsters, Goldar was shown on the balcony quite angered at Rita’s praise for the two’s monster. Rita, Squatt, Baboo, and Shellshock all should have been seen in the background. (09:58)
  • Upon leaving the Command Center, Jason shouted “we need Dinozord power, now!” despite he being the only Ranger present. (11:46)
  • Tommy was practicing alone in the Youth Center, despite earlier telling the other teens that he was “late for karate practice.” (12:22)
  • As Trini jogged along the Mountain of Hope to find the Deandra flowers, the ground was far less steeply inclined than it had been in the shot of the complete mountain. (12:59)
  • Zordon sent the Sabertoothed Tiger Dinozord, in the form of a translucent image, to assist Trini; she was to call upon the Zord’s power to lead her to the Deandra flowers, but it seemed as though she found them without the Zord’s help. (13:34)
  • Jason was awkwardly calm when he asked Tommy for help against Shellshock. (14:06)
  • When Tommy first appeared on the roof of a building to assist Jason, he didn’t appear to be morphed, but wearing puffy white pants and some sort of brown vest. (14:15)
  • Yellow Ranger called out to the Red and Green Rangers, calling them Jason and Billy. (15:10)
