Episode Summary

EDIT
What seems to be a normal, uneventful day turns out to be something far more sinister, when it repeats not once, but twice! Tommy (thanks to his recent brain-tampering) is the only one to notice the continuous loop, but his awareness may be too late, as he and the Rangers discover it's all been a plot by Prince Gasket and Archerina, using a time-device called Chronosapios and guarded by the Protectron monster, to give them enough time to amass a huge fleet of Quadrafighters above the city.moreless

  • Difficult to pull off in 20 minutes

    7.5
    The 40 minute format seems to serve this plot idea better. Star Trek TNG did a fantastic job of it, and of course Bill Murray in 'Groundhog Day'. In this case the cycle repeats three times and although effective, it never has enough time to really analyze a scene, like the card game in Star Trek. The same can be said for the battle at the end. Oh, how i would have loved to see the Gold Ranger duel it out with the Prince, but there simply wasn't enough time. Perhaps this episode would have been better constructed as a single scene playing out repeatedly instead of an entire day. Also, in place of the stock Zord battle, the one on one fight with the Prince would have been better.



    Despite these problems, the episode is still enjoyable. Certainly there is nothing here that you would typically find in the dud episodes. Therefore the B grade seems fair, but will bump that to a + because the developing ingenuity seen throughout the Zeo season is present here. It's good entertainment.moreless
