Levi says the truth and tells him that telling fibs just for fun might get him in trouble. Mick arrives saying a strange man is looking for him.

Mick tells the Rangers they have to fight the monsters. The Rangers destroy the Bashers with their bikes. The Bashers are stopping the truck with Redbot's books. Cat O Clock freeze the books so when the Rangers touch them, they will freeze. 

The Rangers destroy the Bashers and the truck goes to the school. Levi's super fan gets her free book. Victor wants to tell a story but the super fan gets him to tell one. He tells one that happens during Levi's concert, an Earthquake happens. He fibs about what happened with the girl in it. Victors says it wasn't true. Victor adds even more lies about him and Monty being heroes. She calls him out that didn't happen. The crowd starts booing. The publisher wants to know the truth. Cat O Clock arrives and freezes everyone except for Redbot who was not effected. Cat O Clock plans to steal the Ninja Stars. 

Cody runs after the monster and Rebot unfreezes the Rangers. Levi and Redbot get on his bike to find Mary who is between a train track. The Rangers face the monster and morph and fight. The train is coming and Redbot flies off and rescues her. She realizes he saved her and she calls him a hero.  Cat O Clock was going to attack but they hold him down and attack him. They destroy him. He grows. They call the Megazords. 

 They call Rumble Tusk. They make the megazord. Gold arrives and they go Master Mode. Levi updates them on Levi. They blow the monster down. Brody does Ninja Master Blade and they destroy the monster with their Final Attack. Cosmo Royale is writing his own blog, with lies like Redbot. Galavanax finds out and is angry and blasts the computer and tells him he will join Cat O Clock. Back at school, the publisher tells them he is happy they are okay and wants to recycle the books. Redbot arrives and apologizes, saying the Power Rangers are the real heroes. Mary tells them to see the TV and they have footage of Redbot saving her. Everyone applauds. Mary and Redbot hug and everyone asks for his autograph. The Rangers ask Mick about Victor and Monty---they are still frozen and are snack holders.


Review:
It is insane Levi and Mick leave Redbot from the book publisher meeting. The bad guy plot is not so bad but him having a device is obvious the device will get destroyed. Also hilarious hearing the publisher say Internet IP address as I stands for Internet.

Power Rangers Ninja Steel - Grave Robber - Episode Review



Episode Summary:
Here is the annual Halloween special. Levi is playing a song with the Rangers in the mall... I mean the school. An old lady gives some junk to Principal Hastings, one is a game Grave Robber which Calvin likes. Hayley brings the costumes. The Rangers want to play but Levi doesn't. The 5 Rangers go to shop class and put on their costumes, Sarah is some sort of unicorn, Brody is a mounty or a British guard, Calvin is Frankenstein's monster, Preston is a wizard and Hayley is a witch. Cosmo Royale traps them to sit and they can't call for help. They have to play Jumanji... I mean Grave Robber. 

There is a magic hourglass they can't stop. They have to fight villains they defeated before so they fight Trapsaw, already morphed when they touch the crystal ball. Red defeats them all. Sarah rolls 6 and finds Hacktrack, who took her cloning technology. They get some devices and enter. Hacktrack leaves. Red tracks the monster with a Ninja Kite technique using Ninja Forest Attack while the Rangers help Sarah with a device. She makes a kite as well and flies after them. Sarah blasts the monster and destroys it. The Rangers return to the game.

Preston rolls a five and find the slow monster. They surprise him and fight him. Blue and the monster fight. Blue and the others get the slow mist. Blue still tries fighting but fails. Red arrives and they all disappear and return to the board. Cosmo Royale says they lost and give them a misfortune card. Calvin rolls and gets Spinferno. Calvin goes in on his own since he rolled it. Calvin fights Spinferno in a dump and a truck goes after him and Calvin is tied by a ring to the truck. The truck driver is asleep, Yellow gets in and gets the man. They escape but Yellow misses the net and comes out of the game. Cosmo Royale gives them another misfortune card---they must go against a Skullgator.

The 5 Rangers call their Megazord to fight the Skullgator. Cosmo turns RoboRider evil and it goes after the Rangers. Robo Red goes out to fight Robo Rider while Preston calls the Astro Zord to replace the Red one on the Megazord. They destroy the Skullgator. Robo Rider shoots the Megazord. The Rangers fall out. Cosmo Royale sends another Skullgator. Calvin  and Hayley use their zords. Levi and Mick talk. Mick states the obvious, Levi learns his Aseop and goes to the auto class. He finds the door lock and pries it open. He finds the game. He touches the ball and enters the game. Cosmo Royale arrives and is mad. 

He doesn't play by the rules and saves the Rangers. Robo Rider stops the Skull Gator. The others celebrate. Bullrider Megazord is formed. All 6 Rangers enter the cockpit. They destroy the monster. Gold has the hourglass and all the Rangers blast the hourglass and escape the game. They are happy they can stand again. Levi apologizes by spoiling their game. They get an alert so they go trick or treating because it is night now. 

Review:
Best Line-- Presto: "Magic Hourglass? I have to get me one of those." Nice to  have Cosmo Royale involved but he's not a fighter so they didn't have a hand to hand combat. Not a bad Halloween special, sort of reminds me of the Megaforce one since they had to sit around a crystal ball. Nice to sneak a lesson in there for Levi though.

Power Rangers Ninja Steel - Royal Rumble - Episode Review

Summary:
Drillion is about to crush them when the Lion Ship blasts him. He leaves. Galavanax shoots her ship down. Drillion returns and threatens Madame Odius. Galavanax tells him to make sure the Princess was destroyed. Odius takes Drillion with her to make sure the Rangers go down. Viera finds a floating piece of wood with a gravity crystal. She says it is damaged. Redbot and Mick are fixing the swords and stars. The others arrive and ask how they are going to destroy Drillion. Hayley has a lion pendant that becomes Princess Viera. She needs another source of power for her zord. Mick is not so happy, his planet was destroyed by her kingdom. He hasn't seen her parents in 20 years.

Viera wants to change her kingdom. They see the ship in the nexus. They have very little Ninja STeel left to make a new star to make the ship become a Megazord. Victor is being pulled by Monty on a rickshaw. Victor wants toi be more popular and finds a rock floating with a gravity crystal. Monty pulls it out and the rock falls on their feet. Victor wants to use the crystal. Back on the ship, Drillion has been powered up. Back in school, Victor passes out flyers for a weight lifting thing he is doing. The Rangers detect a monster near the Lion ship. Drilion has indeed arrived.

The Rangers face Drillion and morph. Crystals hit the Rangers. Red goes down. Mick throws the star in the nexus and it hits Viera's armor. Red gets a new morpher with a star. He spins it and Viera's armor disappears. Red gets the armor in turn. He becomes Lion Fire Red. Mick tells her that he didn';t think she changed but now he believes she has (that's pretty quick). Red beats up Drilion. Gold attacjs abd struikes lighting on Drillion. Red does a slash and makes him go down. His upgrade is gone. Red puts the star on his sword and does Flame Strike attack and destroys him.

A Kudabot makes him grow. Mick gets a new star to make a megazord and throws it the zord. Red enters the zord. He energizes the zord and makes the Megazord. He fights Drilion. Drillion spits out projectiles. The other Rangers watch. He becomes Lion again and Red gets on top and does a final strike, destroying Drillion. Back at the hideout, they thank Viera. Viera promises to change things for the better in the Lion Galaxy. She has a surprise for him---his parents via video phone. They ask when he will come home. He promises but says he has important work with his friends. The Rangers giggle. He thanks Viera. She then leaves on her ship. She says to be called if needed. Back at school, the Rangers see Victor try to break the record. Preston sees Monty put the crystal on the weights. Victor lifts it up. Everyone applaud. He goes to get the trophy and the weights stay floating. It shocks everyone. He grabs it---he is called a cheater. The crystal is removed and the weight drops down the floor. Monty and Victor fall and the others laugh,

Review: 
I liked some backstory on Mick but the character development between Mick and Viera was solved pretty quick by the Dues Ex Machina machine Nexus fixed things again. Just by Viera's armor taken away by the Nexus does not resolve the issues between Mick and Viera---well it shouldn't. If I was writing this, I would had something go wrong and Viera offer her armor, hence showing she is willing to be a sacrafice.
