Here's my live post...
* Antonio is unmotivated to fight and scared of his Barracuda Blade
* Decent Mooger fight
* Golden Age of Antonio
* Enter Serrator
* Jayden has a fear of spiders, Mike hates closed spaces
* Mia kisses a frog
* Cat in the tree...is that the same cat from last episode?
* Kevin eats Mia's cooking for Antonio
* Mentor Ji reveals the Light Zord
* Ranger Roll Call
* The Rangers meet Serrator
* Serrator defeats the Rangers
* Symbol Power Light!
* Red Ranger..Super Samurai Mode!
* Gold Ranger shows off the Light Zord lantern
* Light Zord Mega Mode
* Lame End Scene!
We see Mentor Ji walking hardcore towards the audience...and all he does is stuff a fish in his mouth. Talk about wasted potential. The overall episode was decent.

Antonio's afraid of fish. I have to agree with Mentor on this one: Seriously?
Serrator. I think I may actually like this villain.
I like that fear therapy. Jayden doesn't like spiders (nor do I), Mike hates enclosed spaces. And Mia, the fairy tale Princess, hates frogs. Wonder what Kevin's, Mentors, and Emily's is?
Kevin eats Mia's cooking. Nice
The Light Zord? Lantern zord sounds a hell of alot better.
Very nice battle vs Serrator
Why didnt Jayden use the Claw Armor Megazord?
Mentor finally does something, and we don't even see it until the end of the episode, and he just stuck sushi in Antonio's mouth. Waste of a scene.
Hit him in the butt?
All in all, a HORRIBLE episode. Serrator is the only thing that made it interesting.
2 out of 10

I enjoyed this episode. Antonio's fear of fish was pretty irrational but the fact that Ji and Kevin gave it a "wtf" reaction makes it seem a little better to me. I loved Serrators debut. In two episodes he's already become the best PRS villain. I think he will end up bringing a lot to this season. Also, I liked the comedy in this episode. It didn't feel as forced as last weeks trading places episode. The solution to Antonio's fear of fish was stupid and the light zord debut seemed rushed but overall this was a really fun episode so I voted "good".
It's worth noting that Antonio's element is Light, and LightZord belongs to him.
Now That I have HD... the show looks so pretty.
I liked how Antonio's fear seemed more like PTSD and less like an excuse for comedy like it was in Shinkenger. Even the other rangers' fears seemed more realistic, though funny we never saw Emily's, when showing Antonio how to overcome them seemed to have been her idea.
They did the impossible and made DaiGoyo not annoying. I approve.
This episode did a good job of making me dislike Antonio. What a tool this guy is. Seeing him break down and shed mantears over such a non-issue was pathetic.
--So Antonio's fear of fish makes him scared to even morph? Scared to even be a Ranger? This guy is officially on drugs.
--Looks like Kevin still has a grudge against Antonio being a Ranger, even after they spent a WHOLE episode loving each other up.
--I have to hand it to Samurai. The Aversion Theory scene was actually very funny, especially the scene with Kevin's fear. Samurai had me laughing, bravo.
--It took only one episode and Serrator already has 10x more personality & intimidation than Xandred. Xandred's now 3rd in command, behind Octoroo as well.
--The ending scene was beyond lame. Ji just shoves a piece of lobster in Antonio's mouth and he's back to normal? Unreal, what a simpleton this guy is.
Overall, this was actually a pretty good episode by Samurai standards. I enjoyed a lot of it, especially the Aversion Theory scene. But Antonio was just embarrassing. Seeing him whine and moan over a complete non-issue while the rest of his team is being beaten within an inch of their life doesn't do his character any favors. Combined with the fact that he came off as a complete drug addict.
I for one thought the episode was awesome. Takeru's fear was a haunted house [Precisive Match # 1-shinkenger], whilst Jayden's fear is spiders. I knew the lantern would come into play. At first it looks like one of those lantern you use for camping, but then changes into a chinese lantern. It was funny how Bulk and Spike were stuck in a tree. That does look like the same cat from 'Switching Places'. I rated this episode awesome, cause I enjoyed every minute of it.
At first when I saw Antonio's "fear" i wuz lyk "what the shitaki mushrooms???" that is possibly the weirdest fear I ever ever seen. Overall, the episode was good. Here's my likes and dislikes column:
-The therapy everyone did. I thought it was hilarious.
-Jayden and the spider...so cute! I loved how Mia gave it to him. See? They're already acting like a couple!!!
-Mia and the frog...gross, but funny!
-Mike and inclosed spaces...aw, but I have to say, I don't like enclosed spaces either!
-The Light Zord, it looks like a soda can! So cute, yet so cool!
-Serrator made a pretty cool entrance, I thought it was so epic when he turned that paper into a cool Nighlok!
-That sushi mentor put in Antonio's mouth, I love sushi!!!
-Antonio's fear (Sorry, but I thought it was really lame)
-How they solved his fear (Mentor with the sushi? REALLY?!)
-How Emily didn't seem to have a fear (COME ON!)
-Bulk and Spike's scenes (Kinda useless)
-The ending, it was just too rushed
I thought this episode was very humorous and different. I just think Antonio has gotten a lot wimpier since the 2nd season. Again, I'm disappointed because there is yet to be a full episode about Mia (or the Jaymia thing hitting off). Hope it happens!
Couldn't keep a straight face during this one, with Antonio crying haha. Not that bad, and I agree Serrator looks good. Decent episode
