The heart attack advisory episode... Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers: Rita's Pita Episode mini-review (Power Rangers Day 2015 Special)
OK since I did this thing for 2 years in a row, It's becoming tradition, I reviewed a MMPR Episode once for the franchise's 20th anniversary and again a year later when it became old enough to drink, Now in honor of Power Rangers' 22nd anniversary, we take a look at a weird one, from season 3. I admit season 3 for the second 2/3 of it was pretty normal for the most part, with epic 3 parters, and the alien rangers saga didn't divulge into the weird really either, sure there are exceptions like the episode showing of Bulk and Skull's musical skill, but honestly it was pretty much not as weird as previous seasons, which is perfectly OK, because Power Rangers tells 3 types of stories, epic storyline driven stories, Normal life made abnormal by monsters stories, and WTF Type stories. This episode falls into the 3rd type, so indulge yourselves into the Diabetes driven episode of Rita's Pita...
SO THE EPISODE BEGINS AS ALWAYS WITH TONS OF CLIPS FROM THE SHOW THROWN RIGHT YOUR WAY, AND REMEMBER THIS IS AT THE POINT WHERE KIMBERLY LEFT AND WAS REPLACED BY KATHERINE, ALSO GO GO POWER RANGERS!!!!!!! THE ACTUAL EPISODE STARS WITH TOMMY AND THE KID OF THE DAY TRAINING, THE OTHER RANGERS NOTICE, AND TOMMY AND TOKEN KID #151251 ORDER VEGGIE PITAS, RITA, ZEDD AND EVERYONE ELSE GET READY TO PLOP A MONSTER FOR TOMMY WITH A SPECIAL "PITA FROM RITA"!!!! KAT, ADAM, AND BILLY TALK ABOUT HOW MUCH OF A NOOB SHE IS RIGHT NOW, BULK AND SKULL ORDER THE HEART ATTACK SPECIAL, AND THEN FINSTER INTRODUCES THE RAVENATOR, LITERALLY A GIANT MOUTH ON A BODY, THEN AGAIN THIS IS THE SAME FRANCHISE THAT FAVE US A MONSTER WHO CAN TAKE OVER THE WORLD WITH PIZZAS. THE MONSTER SHRINKS WITH MORE BAD PUNS!!!!! KAT HEARS RITA PLOT AND THE VILLAINS ARE UPSET ABOUT HER KNOWING, SO THEY TAKE SOME TENGAS DOWN TO EARTH!!!!! KAT MORPHS INTO HER NINJA RANGER FORM, AND FIGHTS WHILE AN INSTRUMENTAL VERSION OF TENGA BYE BYE PLAYS!!!!!!! THE MONSTER ENTERS TOMMY'S PITA AND HE EATS IT!!!! TOMMY STARTS BINGE EATING, AND THE KID CALLS HIM OUT IN IT!!!! AFTER THAT MORE FIGHTING, ALSO DID I MENTION KATHERINE WAS KIND OF A NOOB AT THIS POINT OF THE SERIES!!!!!! EVERYONE NOTICES TOMMY EATING LIKE A PIG, ALSO KAT TELLS THE OTHERS ABOUT THE PLOT CONVENIENCE FROM EARLIER!!!!! THE RANGERS TALK ABOUT THE RAVENATOR, AND THE RANGERS HEAD TO THE JUICE BAR THEN THE BAKE SALE BULK AND SKULL ARE HAVING!!!!!!!!! THEY DRIVE AS MUCH PEOPLE AWAY FROM THE BAKE SALE AS POSSIBLE!!!!! TOMMY EATS THE MAKE SALE AND HAS TO PAY FOR WHATEVER HE EATS!!!!!!! THE RANGERS TAKE TOMMY TO THE PARK AND WE SEE THE ICE CREAM TRUCK PLOT DEVICE!!!!!! THE RANGER EXPLAIN TO TOMMY OFF SCREEN THE MONSTER AND THEY ORDER A HUGE SUNDAE!!!!! THEY STOP TOMMY FROM EATING THE SUNDAE LETTING OUT THE MONSTER!!!!! THE RANGERS MORPH AND FIGHT THE TEETH MONSTER WHILE DELIVERING INSULTS TO EACH OTHER!!!! THE MONSTER GROWS AND THE RANGERS GET THEIR SHOGUN ZORDS COMBINE AND FIGHT POWERED BY THE POWER RANGERS THEME!!!!! EVEN IF THE ACTION SCENE IS BRIEF, I CAN STILL ROCK OUT THE MMPR THEME ALL DAY!!!!!! THE MOSTER TURNS INTO A SPIRIT, GOES TO THE HEAVENS, AND EXPLODES!!!!! ZEDD AND RITA BICKER AND THE KID STARTS PLAYING ROYALTY FREE GAME SOUNDS!!!! TOMMY TALKS THE KID BACK INTO DOING KARATE, AND BULK AND SKULL FALL INTO A FOOD COMA FROM EATING ALL THAT BAKED GOODS!!!!!!! Lt. STONE GATHERS WHAT FUNDS THEY HAD, HE OFFERS THEM A SUNDAE AND WE END WITH THE OBLIGATORY END OF SHOW LAUGH!!!! OH WE GET A BLOOPERS MONTAGE THAT A CAN BE MIXED WITH EAT IT FOR AN EXTREMELY WELL FIT!!!!!
This episode is weird, probably weirder than a similar episode known as Food Fight. But It is cute, has a good message, and half the fun of Power Rangers is seeing how weird things can get... I give this episode 2.75 Super Large Ice Cream Truck Plot Device Sundaes out of 4.
Get ready because next year, we GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO ZEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEOOOOOOOOOOOOOO for Power Rangers Day 2016!!!!!!!!!!!!!
