  • The recap for the previous episode incorrectly stated that the first wish was used to make the Blue Senturion evil and the second for Elgar’s hairdo. (00:10)
  • Wild Weeder’s introduction in this episode did not match his introduction in the last. (01:29)
  • When Wild Weeder threw his seeds at the first group of citizens, they made the same exact response motions after each dose of seeds, except from a different camera vantage point. (02:35)
  • In some shots of Evil Blue Senturion, the round, black spheres on his chest appeared to be flat. (05:00)
  • Storm Blaster didn’t have the Turbine Laser on it in the US footage, but it did after the switch to Sentai. (11:18)
  • There was Japanese writing on several walls downtown as the Rangers fought Wild Weeder. (11:39)
  • Robo Racer in car mode, driving above ground in Angel Grove, raced through a tunnel that looked identical to the one through which the Turbozords would drive to travel up from their subterranean holding bay. (12:50)
  • When the Rangers summoned the Rescuezords after being shot at by Robo Racer’s cannon, there were four Ranger-colored smoke explosions in the desert before the Rescuezords were shown driving in with multiple non-colored explosions behind them on a city street. (13:56)
  • After the torpedoes had struck around him, Wild Weeder’s face grew red, and he blew steam out of his mouth before growing. (17:02)
  • After the torpedoes had struck around it, the mutant bee’s face grew red, and it blew steam out of its mouth before growing. (17:03)
  • When transforming to form the Rescue Megazord, Siren Blaster and Wind Rescue started from modes that were somewhere between high stance mode and vehicle mode. (17:47)
