  • A great episode; the long Zord battle is the highlight.

    9.0
    I enjoyed Doomsday very much. The debut of Cyclopsis was built-up really well, and the Rangers are left wondering how they can destroy something so powerful.



    The "Power Rangers Day" is a nice touch, and Bulk and Skull (as usual) try to get in on the act. However, the celebration is cut short by everyone in Angle Grove being teleported to another dimension.



    Since this is a two-parter, they really go all-out to make things look dire for the Rangers. Rita brings her moon palace to Earth, therefore increasing her overall power. Then she unleashes the ancient WarZord Cyclopsis, piloted by Goldar. What transpires next is a frankly desperate attempt by the Rangers to take down Cyclopsis, which proves much more difficult than expected.



    To start, the Megazord is dominated by the Zord; it only manages to land one punch on Cyclopsis. Jason is forced to call on the Dragonzord, which doesn't fare much better. They decide to try a different strategy, and switch to Dragonzord battle-mode. They fire an energy blast which Cyclopsis easily deflects, while the Tyrannosaurus (hilariously, if you're watching this years after you first saw the episode as a child) trys to take down Cyclopsis by blowing air at it! Cyclopsis deflects this too, and is about to destroy the Rangers when Titanus turns up to rescue them.



    We get a cool shot of Titanus firing its twin cannons while moving. Cyclopsis is destroyed but Rita isn't having it; she buries Titanus underground in an awesome scene and then gets Lokar (from the \"Island of Illusion two-parter) to rebuild Cyclopsis.



    The Zords are too heavily damaged to re-engage Cyclopsis, allowing the Rangers to look on as a seemingly more monsterous Cyclopsis prepares to crush Angel Grove.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • At the beginning of the Megazord formation, the Triceratops used the Tyrannosaurus roar instead of its own.

    • This episode is one of the few times that Rita personally attacks a Zord. In "Birds of a Feather", she cast a spell on Dragonzord, rendering it useless in the battle with Hatchasaurus.

      In this episode, she blasts MegaDragonzord with her wand, preventing it from helping Titanus who was being buried underground.

    • When Dragonzord Battle Mode and Tyrannosaurus faced Cyclopsis, it appeared to struggle with a big cloud of dust as if the cloud were some kind of attack from the Zords, then sent it back at the Zords and the cloud exploded against Tyrannosaurus. What the heck was that?

    • Rita shot a beam from her wand to summon Cyclopsis. The beam was shown flying to earth from space, but her palace had already landed in Angel Grove.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Rita: You, Lokar, shall be the final ingredient in my master plan, and what a beauty, too. With your power, I can recreate Cyclopsis, and all the world is mine! So be it! HA-HA!

    • Kimberly: (Reading) "Mayor Carrington hopes that the mysterious Power Rangers will make a public in Angel Grove park, where thousands of fans will be gathered tomorrow." I have a feeling the Rangers are gonna be there...

    • Bulk: With iron chests, and fists of steel...
      Skull: We've got real superhero appeal!
      Bulk: We'll fight with all our might. Bulkster!
      Skull: And Superskull!
      Both: Will set things right!

    • Rita: A party? Maybe we should attend.
      Baboo: You think there'll be any of those little Swedish meatballs?
      Goldar: Quiet, you bubblehead! We're not going for a social visit; We're going to destroy the Power Rangers!

    • Rita: Get ready to travel everyone!
      Squatt: Ooh, should I pack a bathing suit?
