  • One of the better early Power Rangers episodes.

    9.0
    There is an undeniable disparity in budget between Power Rangers Zeo and its Japanese counterpart. The English production can never produce a technical product of the same level, but benefits from a strong cast of characters. When the plot is meaningful and the Sentai footage well used in harmony, a tremendous result is usually the case. This trilogy hits all the right notes.



    It's curious that multi-million dollar programs don't have the budget to go out on location, and yet this small shoestring crew was able to go out on location at a ski resort. Certainly nothing previous in the series is as ambitious as this, but the scenes are never overcomplicated either. The Rangers went snowboarding and snowmobiling with cameras. This creates several excellent montages of awesomeness that's far more classy than the hammy school scenes from lesser episodes.



    Powering this is a plot surrounding tommy moving on from his relationship with Kimberly. It's believable and makes him a more human character. Placing the actors out in the mountains for filming instead of a studio schoolroom set also seems to bring out stronger performances from everyone.



    Being that this is a 3 episode arc, the fight scenes are not rushed as is sometimes the case in the stand-alone episodes. The pacing is strong and the quality as ever excellent. Although it is not as dramatically tense a story as 'Green with Evil', this series of episodes hits all the right notes. If you're looking to be selective about which episodes you watch from ZEO, you can't go wrong here.moreless
  • This is the best know as Kim's guest staring role and Heather as well anyway, to get over is lost love Kat and Billy take Tommy sking and they meet Heather. However, Mondo sends 2 monsters in this 3 parter and the rangers beat both of them. Eventually thamoreless

    7.5
    Besides what I said the spark between Tommy and Heather was short live and after an failed atempt, Kat's dinner for Heather and Tommy becmae her and Tommy's instead. As for parts 1 and 2, not much exepct Billy, Tommy, and Kat while at the ski resort, saves Heather after some Cogs removed somee warning signs, and causing Heather to land at the cliff.



    Overall: 7.5 out of 10
