SYNOPSIS: Amelia goes hunting for ghosts, but finds Void Knight’s latest monster instead.
By Rob Siebert
Amelia’s Pop-Pop: “I worked at Area 62 – saw all kinds of crazy stuff.” File that away in the back of your mind. Something tells me that little detail will come back to haunt us…no pun intended.
“McScary Manor,” the episode’s title, sounds like a place you’d find Ronald McDonald around Halloween. Like in one of those commercials with the Hamburglar, Grimace, etc.
Amelia’s fascination with the ghosts and the paranormal has been a nice, consistent character trait. The characterization on Dino Fury has been pretty good, thus far. Everybody seems to have their ground to cover.
Nice little fight sequence with Tombtress and Amelia. Having her hands restrained made for a nice twist.
Javi: “I just love how good at posing we are!” Dino Fury is pretty good at self-referential humor. Not quite as good as R.P.M. was, but still pretty good.
When the Rangers are at BuzzBlast, Zayto is discreet when he tells the others there’s been no sign of Tombtress. I appreciate that, as it seems like one of the few times the Rangers have actually tried to protect their secret identities in this series…
So now we know that not only does Amelia live with Pop-Pop, but her parents were lost in some “pretty mysterious circumstances” when she was a baby. Yet another detail to file away.
I knew Tombtress sounded familiar. She’s voiced by Kira Josephson, the actress who plays Jane.
Always keep an eye on those end credits. You never know whose name is going to pop up. Case in point: Jason Smith, who played the Red Ranger in Power Rangers Jungle Fury, voiced a monster earlier in the season.
This was a good episode, particularly for Amelia. Not only did we get some great character stuff, but she got to pilot the Megazord and lead the team in saving the day.
