Episode analysis
at Revisiting Power Rangers


  • Jeff Deckman’s writing credit misspelled his first name as “Jeffery”. (01:42)
  • After Jason said, “Let’s finish these Putties,” he continued bobbing his head as if still speaking (07:28)
  • After being teleported back to the Youth Center by King Sphinx, Kimberly was no longer wearing shoes (07:50)
  • Kimberly and Zack rushed to Billy’s garage to give Billy and Trini urgent news rather than contacting them with their communicators (10:10)
  • Though Zordon had told the teens to power up their Zords, the other Rangers didn’t appear until Jason had thrown their Power Crystals into the air (11:22)
  • The sack in which Alpha sent the Power Crystals to Jason initially bore a circle containing the familiar Z symbol, but once Jason had retrieved the sack from the cliff face, the circle contained what may have been the group symbol of the Dinozords (12:14)
  • The red Power Crystal was somehow in the sack as well, yet Jason hadn’t been shown summoning it (12:18)
  • Although the Red Power Crystal seemed to have Red Ranger’s Power Coin at the base, there was also a Power Coin in Red Ranger’s Morpher at the time (12:22)
  • In the overhead shot of the Megazord cockpit, the three symbols in front of Jason were not the Red Ranger and Tyrannosaurus symbols, but instead the Green Ranger and Dragonzord symbols (15:54)
  • Jason referred to the Megazord’s Power Sword as the “Mega Power Sword”. (16:48)
