"I got a Spell on Blue"
It is a basic carbon cop of the Shurikenger episode, Jayden and Kevin spare and the Rangers think Kevin is best, but Jii says it is Jayden. A monster has the Tiger Zord and he puts a spell on Kevin. Jayden decides to fight Kevin on his own and is able to break the spell using a special disc. The others are bummed about Jayden fighting Kevin on his own, a mysterious stranger (Rick Medina in the same Juzo clothing!) explains even though it looks like Blue is winning, it is actually Red. Deker then disappears. Red fights the Tiger in his Lion and is able to conquer it. The four Rangers take down the monster and then the Tiger Samurai Megazord destroys the foe.
At the end, Emily, Mia and Mike play with their Zords on a board. Jayden and Kevin give a pep talk that is to be wise but they don't seem to be able to get it. Oh and Bulk and Spike have a subplot of camping in the forest and bump into the MotD.
I was waiting and waiting for Rick Medina would appear on screen and screamed when I saw him in the Juzo outfit. Juzo is his Shinkenger counterpart. The puns are rampant here and even Jayden's dialouge is infested with it. 'cool cat' and horrible lines like that. The monster is the most annoying, his lines and voice acting is deplorable. Being that it is the same exact plot of Shinkenger, the Shinkenger actors did better with the material. It's like having Filet Mignon and then having public school meat loaf. I can't really access Rick's acting right now though. The Zord game looked great though. I do give them points for alluding to killing Blue twice (the monster and Dayu), just like the counterpart, you'd think the censors would have gotten them for that.
There didn't seem to be a 'Next time on' preview, they said there is new episodes every Sunday and showed clips of what seem to be the first and second episode (of Shinkenger) that we have yet to see. According to scheduling, the newest episode that premieres Tiger, Kabuto and Swordfish getting together in April.
