Mighty Morphin Power Rangers 2010 - Switching Places - Ep Review

UPDATED 7/16/17

Squatt fools around with Billy's machine to read minds and it makes Kimberly and Billy accidentally switch bodies, it also does it to Bulk and Skull. Meanwhile, a Genie is sent to fight the Rangers.


This was one of my favorite episodes way back when, when they first aired. But it always bothered me that when Billy and Kimberly transformed, there was no difference in their personality and when they morphed, they used the same footage. In the revision, they use this horrible dissolve on Rita (Above left).


On scene where Kimberly as Billy is teaching a kid how to use a computer and blows it, the boy's voice is dubbed, much like the 'little girl' in 'Big Sisters' (that aired last week). It always made me wonder why they did that. It could be possible it has something to do with SAG, where Saban didn't hire anyone that was on SAG, and maybe if they had to record his voice, then they had to pay him, so they had to do something.

They didn't change the hearts on the Pink Ranger and the star on the Blue Ranger, it's like the revisionists were not paying attention. It would have been nice if they put the hearts on Blue Ranger as she was Kimberly and the star with the Pink Ranger as he was Billy.

CUTS:

They completely removed this scene with the teens getting the lamp!

Some shots of Trini looking at Skull and Bulk were cut out.


"I, Eye Guy" airs next week, "Foul Play in the Sky" plays the next after that.

MMPR 2010 Toys: Rita-Gipped again

There are these figure sets, two each, the six Rangers released with Lord Zedd and Alpha. Alpha comes with Blue Ranger and Lord Zedd comes with the Pink Ranger. Many have complained on how Lord Zedd has been available in two sets already but no Rita. And Rita Repulsa is the lead villain of the first season which is airing and Lord Zedd is not even seen! But Toys R Us has a special set box that has all eight figures, including two stickers on the plastic of a Putty and Rita Repulsa. So with this sticker, many fans see this as a middle finger, a tease tat we will never get a Rita figure. I think it is a tease that we will. But shouldn't it be the other way around? Shouldn't Rita be the regular figure and Lord Zedd as the surprise bonus. Maybe toy shops don't want a female villain in this day and age and rather like Lord Zedd better as a villain because he is male. Maybe they think Rita won't sell. But, uh-ho, they will! Boy golly they would!
