  • This episode proves that the rangers need Kimberly!

    Kimberly takes flying lessons with her sweet old uncle. But those bastards from outer space slip him a potion that causes him to fall asleep, 15000 feet off the ground! Kimberly's capability takes a new step as she manages to land the plane (with some guidance from Alpha 5 and Zordon). Kimberly flees the plane, morphs, loads her power bow, and fires away at the monster leaving him completely lifeless. After saving the rangers' asses, she turns down some more lessons from her uncle. I would just like to say that this was a flawless episode, except for the one percent thrown off by Bulk and Skull, who were completely stupid, moronic, useless, and caused the show's regression into a down-ward spiral! My rating: nearly flawless.moreless
  • Kimberly and her uncle Steve go flying in a plane over Angel Grove. Squatt pus something in her uncle's drink that makes him fall asleep. Kimberly had to land the plane while the other 4 rangers are on the ground battling the Snizard.moreless

    This is a great episode. I wasn't really a fan of Power Rangers before I watched this episode. This episode made me a big fan of the show and of Kimberly. This has to be one of my favorite Kimberly-centric episodes.This and Power Ranger Punks show that Kimberly is strong fighter since she was the only ranger left to defeat the monster.

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Strangely, Alpha tells Kimberly she should just "morph out" of the plane if she's in trouble and doesn't know how to fly. Wouldn't it crash and endanger lives then, even if there was nobody still on the plane? Besides, Alpha knew what to tell Kimberly to do to land it safely anyway.

    • When Kim has the flashback of the first time she morphed, she and the other Rangers were wearing different clothes and there were two putties present, one of which scratched it's head in confusion. This flashback did not contain footage from "Day of the Dumpster," but rather from the unaired pilot episode.

  • QUOTES (5)

  • NOTES (4)

    • No Zord action whatsoever in this episode.

    • Snizzard will return in "Zedd's Monster Mash," "The Wedding" 3-parter, and "Countdown to Destruction". His suit will later be repainted, wrapped up in some parts, have it's zapper apple removed, and have a hood added onto it to form the Cobra Monster in "The Cobra Strikes."

    • Originally the plot of this episode was to be very similar to its Zyuranger counterpart. Kimberly was supossed to take a bite out of a poisoned apple and fall into a deep sleep ala Snow White. The reason for the change in plots is unknown but some scenes made it into the aired version. In the command centre Zack is kneeling on the floor beside Kimberly who can not be seen. As Alpha walks from the veiwing glode you can just see Kim lying down at the bottom of the screen. And finally when Trini says "Alpha take care of Kimberly." she points down to where Kim is lying.

    • This episode features the first appearance of Angela, Zack's only on-screen love interest.
