  • Part two of the season premiere.

    By the second part of this episode I was really getting into it. I mean, it’s far from a brilliant series, but is highly enjoyable and I’d classify it as a guilty pleasure. I like the storyline they are going with this season and some of the new Rangers grew on me in the second half. I really like the Pink, Yellow and Red Rangers so far. The butler is pretty funny at times too. Overall, I am glad I had a chance to see where one of my favorite childhood shows has gone 13 years later. I am excited to see the rest of this season and will tune in weekly most likely.moreless
  • Good Premiere, but it wasn't the best, First Impressions: Lightspeed Rescue meets Indiana Jones

    This Review BTW covers Both parts

    # There is a great plot this year with the main villians, both are brothers one uses the element of fire, the other uses the element of ice, the 2 deadly element, both can do segnificant damage to the other. whats also interesting is that they're both brothers so they know what they'll do, and now their bitter rivals.

    # Notice how the 5 jewels of the Corona Aroura resemble the 5 classic ranger colours: Black, Pink, Blue, Yellow, Red. I'm not sure if it has anything to do with the OO rangers since they're powers are man made, but for something thats thousands of years old it's worth keeping an eye on

    # What the Hell, a Hip Hop theme? not only was it a bad idea since it doesn't suit PR, but the song itself is crap. (Hey Disney, this could do with a DO OVER)

    # "Let's Ranger up" Aww man Not again

    # Once again the opening Zord battle is rushed,

    # The Acting with these new guys is terrible, mainly Rose and Mack, not only that but if these Rangers are supposed to be from around the world how come they all have American Accents? The Girls in particular should have had a British and Italian accent respectively.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Lava is very very hot, at about 300 degrees it's hot enough that if you were to stand close to the stuff the heat alone would kill you, the faster the lava the hotter the temperature is.

    • The steering wheel was on the wrong side of the car, when Mack was rescuing the woman and her baby from it.

  • QUOTES (10)

  • NOTES (9)

    • Moltor's giant dinosaur is designed, in terms of upper body, after MMPR's Titanus.

    • This is the first time since PRDT that the Rangers have actually received/used their Zords in the premiere episodes.

    • Mack is given his enhanced genetic ability at last, which is Super Strength. The emphasis Spencer makes to Hartford about "specially" setting the machine for Mack will be elaborated upon starting in "Out of Luck", and coming to a head in "Things Not Said".

    • Debut of the Drive Defender (the Rangers' side arm, it has a sword and a gun mode).

    • Debut of Mack's morphing sequence. In the episode prior, he just morphed instantaneously without a sequence.

    • Debut of the S.H.A.R.C. (Special Hydro/Aero Recon Craft).

    • While they have not been fully introduced, during scenes in the Zord bay, you can easily make out Zords 6-9, the drill, shovel, mixer, and crane. This makes Overdrive the first series to have auxillary zords right from the start.

    • Debut of the DriveMax Zords (Red's Dump Driver, Black's Speed Driver, Blue's Gyro Driver, Yellow's Dozer Driver, and Pink's Sub Driver), and their combination of the DriveMax Megazord. Not to mention, the Drive Digger and its Saber Mode.

    • Debuted on Toon Disney on its regular day but a SPECIAL time of Monday Night at 8:30pm E&P. Just a few hours prior, it also made its debut on the web on ABC Kids debut date: Saturday, March 3 at 12:30pm ET/11:30am PT.
