Henshin Grid Slow Down

Hi the electricity (not internet either) went out last week and it should be back in a few days. Also I am starting school (some college classes) and I work so I know I will be too busy. I already stop posting the pictures of Sentai and Kamen Rider every weekend. I might still do the PRDSC episode reviews but not sure. This will continue until June or so (hopefully I will be back at full force in the summer). So I am not retiring but things will slow down here even more than before. This has happened before in my 16 years of doing websites and blogs.

Power Rangers Dino Charge - Forgive and Forget - Episode Review

Heckyl is at the restaurant and making bad luck for people. Burt, a old rival of Riley makes fun of him and causes Riley to touch his Energem and tells him he will go against him in arm wrestling. The energem glows and Riley beats him, Kendall berates him. Heckyl's tattoo glows and he holds it and tells Chase that a girl is out there for him. He becomes Snide and he goes out of the kitchen. Wrench takes out of the venom of Stingrage to change it so the Rangers forget who they are. Snide says they will change the plan. At the base, Kendall is going to create a new mode for their Megazords---Dino Supercharge. Outside, Riley and Burt prepare to go in an obstacle course against each other. Riley uses the Energem. Riley falls and Heckyl helps him up. Riley doesn't understand why Burt is a jerk.

Heckyl convinces Riley to join a marathon. Sting Rage arrives and throws stings at them. Riley puts Heckyl behind a wall, he fights with Snide about the new plan, saying it might work. Riley fights Sting Rage. Heckyl takes a hit for Riley. Red, Black, Pink, Blue, and Gold arrive to fight Sting Rage and Tyler and Shelby de-morph. Tyler takes the stinger out of Heckyl and Heckyl forgets who he is, supposedly. The Rangers are about to take him into the base, Kendall is against it, they say he knows who they are and he forgot his memory. Kendall shows them the two stings, with new venoms. They give Heckyl an antidote, he says he knows they are Rangers and Shelby tells them not to tell anyone about the base. Heckyl looks at the Energems.

At the ship, Heckyl explains himself to Snide who thinks he should have gotten the Energems. He tells them that when they lose their memories, he can do it. Fury and Sting Rage dump venom into the lake. At the marathon, the infected water is put in the drinking after. Heckyl tries giving water to Riley but he rejects it for his sports drink. Riley says he will win the game fair and square without the gem. Riley goes past Burt. Burt takes a drink and forgets who he is. Tyler, Chase and Koda show off their abs in support of Riley. The Rangers forget their memories too as they drank the water, Riley tells Kendall. Heckyl takes Koda's Energem. Riley takes all the Energems to the base. Kendall gives Riley the antidote, telling him to not give them the Energems yet. Kendall sprays the antidote with the Plesio Charge Megazord. The Rangers' memories come back thanks to Riley, who gives them the gems back.

Burt runs from his friends and Riley sprays him. Their friends tell Burt that he helped him. Burt defends Riley to another guy who wants to drink the water. Heckyl enters the empty base and the Energems are gone. He turns back into Snide and calls Heckyl a fool. Purple sees they are putting more venom in the dam. She sends Tyler. The Rangers fight the monsters. The five blast Sting Rage. Gold and fury fight. Red puts Armor X on and blasts back. He does a spiral attack on Sting Rage. The Rangers do final strike on him. Magna Beam makes him large as he enters the dam. The Rnager ssummon T-Rex, Raptor and Para making Para-Raptor Formation and activate Dino Super Drive mode. It gets a new sequence and the saber appears. They have no mouthplates and new accents on the helmets and spikes. 

They fight Sting Rage. They do the final strike with his saber, putting all the chargers in it. They destroy Sting Rage. Fury has Curio fill drinks and he puts the memory venom in it. Heckyl makes a toast with the jailed monsters, saying Snide failed to capture the Rangers but he managed to get the base. Together they will storm the base but he drinks the venom and forgets. Heckyl goes to take a nap. Only Burt and Riley are running in the marathon, they are the last. Burt wants him to cross and wants the slowest rate. They cross together. 

Heckyl is a delight and Snide is kind of boring, just a grumpy voice guy. But Heckyl calling himself Heckyl to the Rangers is stupid, he should had had an alias. Or maybe he doesn't really care. Also, the Rangers letting Heckyl in the base was also idotic. I wish more people were on Kendall's side. Or even Keeper show up, where the heck is he? (Pun intended). Heckyl entering the base and his intentions are deliciously smart but the execution is questionable. Heckyl has only know the gang for a few episodes and he already knows how to manipulate them. Also, I wonder if we will ever find out how Heckyl and Snide became one as it seems they are too separate entities and not the same guy.

Power Rangers Dino Supercharge - When Evil Stirs - Episode Review

[My computer has been lagging and the power went out in my house and won't be back in a week or two. I am currently uisng my niece's wifi at her house while babysitting her kids.]

"When Evil Stirs" 
We open to Tyler summarizing the last season in his journal. He says they returned t their normal lives. He misses his Energem. In Sledges ship, Snide says it is his turn and tells the Viviks and Blueheads that he is the boss now. He destroys a Bluehead. Snide becomes Heckyl, who apologizes for his other half. He can see Snide through a watch. Snide becomes Heckyl and he tells the Viviks to release the monsters (some being re-used suits from Mystic Force and Ninja Storm). Posandra cries for Sledge and then is okay for the snacks. Wrench brings up that Poisandra broke up with Sledge. Snide tells them if they don't side with him, he will destroy them. One tries leaving and is destroyed. Meanwhile Koda eagerly awaits letters from Chase and Shelby.

Shelby is in college trying to become businesswoman. Kendall interviews a new waiter, which turns out to be Heckyl, who she recognizes as the guy who saved her. Kendall excuses herself and he spies and sees where Shelby and Chase are. Hyde wants to attack Kendall for her gem. Kendall hires Heckyl. At that college, Colonel Truman... I mean Shelby's dad tells her he is proud of her and should stick to her studies. She is attacked. The other Rangers such as Chase in New Zealand, Riley on the farm and Tyler in his jeep are attacked. Tyler calls Kendall before being attacked. Kendall is worried about Tyler but Ivan isn't but they all decide to check on him anyway. Kendall, Koda and Ivan arrive at the site and they get frozen, except for Koda who discovers it was Ice Age. 

Ice Age freezes Koda's jacket as he escapes. Koda goes to the hideout (having driven badly) and tries calling Shelby. Tyler arrives. Koda says he was scared of the ice because he was trapped in ice for many years. It is shown how Kendall and Chase found him trapped in ice. Chase took him out with the Dino Blaze charger. Keeper greets them and tells Koda it isn't his fault, the other Rangers are safe because of the gem. Tyler has an idea. Koda and Tyler run to the monsters, seemingly transform and get frozen. But it was all a rouse, Snide finds just their uniforms inside. The real ones use Dino Blaze free the others. Tyler gives them their Energems. Snide introduces himself. They all morph and fight the villains.

Snide is about to transform, so he ducks and hides, changing into Heckyl, who can't show his true identity so he runs away. Purple Ranger attacks Ice Age. The Rangers call the Dino Spike and combined with Gold's attack, take down Ice Age. Jekyl demands the beam to be shot. Ice Age and Vivizords grow and the Rangers call their Megazords (T-Rex and Plesio). Dino Drive is activated, they use Plesio first with Pachy. They then call T-Rex and mix it with Plesio making Plesio Charge Megazord Rex Formation. They destroy the monsters. The Rangers return to the base happily. Koda saying they are his family. Phillip arrives and Keeper says their mission is to get the other two energems. They think Aqua Ranger is out there as Ankylozord was activated. 

Ryan (Heckyl) continues to do a great job but there is still a lot of questions as to why everyone thinks Sledge is destroyed because there was no explosion. Also, Kendall's first transformation is a non issue, Also it is was cute that it was a Koda episode. Still interesting how the Rangers mention getting the Energems but nothing about the new villain Snide nor having to defeat the bad guys.
