Comments:
  • Horses on the moon.. interesting
  • It was kind of disappointing that it wasn't explained how some of the Rangers got their powers back, but understandable, being only a 22 minute episode.
  • The scale of the CGI Serpentera was way off.
  • That was totally bogus how Cole single handedly defeated Serpentera. A team effort would have been preferrable.
  • Jason was sure cocky...
  • Big Bad Beetle Borgs?
  • For such a well researched mission, they sure waited until the last minute to strike against the Machine Empire.
  • Additional appearances by former Rangers included Archie Kao voicing General Venjix, Catherine Sutherland voicing Tezzla, and Walter Jones voicing Gerrok.
