I voted ok even if it was tie between ok and poor:
-Nice mix of american and japanse footage
-I like the reference to the past episodes (kevin with a tutu, kevin is the expert of zord combinaison)
-It seems like the plot will progress a bit since Dayu and Deker are back
-It's always nice to know a bit better the ranger
-Mia had 2 lines wich make her look like a real "Mother of the team".
-Bulk & Spike were more useless than usual
-What Kevin did at the end is not allowed in the competition i think
-Urasama was made by Serrator, well it's a bit confusing for me but let's pretend it's normal.
-Gigazord is ugly.
-The way they use the shogun mode is confusing.
-The blue samurai ranger suit actor looked more like Ryunosuke than Kevin.*
-So take the shinkenger episode and remplace Ryunosuke by Kevin and natation and you have that Úpisode....--'
-Bulk a lifeguard? Since when
-That scene where they put Kevin in a shinkenger scene was lame.
At first I thought that lifeguard thing was a nice continuity reference. It SOUNDED like something Bulk had actually done. I used Google and searched through the Writer's Guide though, and nothing turned up other than Bulk being saved by a lifeguard. Did he actually do it, was it just a meaningless little line, or was it a total failure of a reference?

The Final scene of the episode it as much cool for this one Jayden and Mentor Ju speaking with Kevin and we see that scene from the Musical Clip with the Music of the episode of the Last Week and well now they have the Samurai Gigazord a great Ultimate and Massive Megazord for the Samurai Rangers.
Since the Super Samurai starts we have been see always Power-ups debuts but now they have all Megazord configurations(Clawarmor Megazord,Samurai Shark Megazord,Bull Megazord and Samurai Gigazord)with many modes during the season Super Samurai.
Great episode of Super Samurai
I honestly, thought he was referring to Changing of the Zords Part 1 where he and Skull had the black and white striped bathing suits on and tried to rescue the kids that weren't drowning.

the differences between sentai and pr footage seemed even more obvious today to me... it was a decent episode but lacked a lot of the originality we saw last week. And for everyone complaining about the lack of Kevin missing swimming... would you really want it to become as annoying as the running Mia thinks she can cook but cant gag?
Even if Mia gets the worst lines I still Prefer her to mOst of this cast.
The episode was good okay not my favorite.
You shouldn't swing from one extreme to another. There's are degrees between not mentioning something for over twenty episodes, and bringing it up unnecessarily in every episode.
People don't like Kevin because the character is so decidedly empty, shallow, and boring. I mean, is ANYONE willing to step up and say that they like this character? Someone who, if questioned, can produce a reason other than "just because?" Kevn does not act like a three dimensional person. Aside from a couple isolated moments, his characterization has stayed within a very narrow range of being jerk with a stick in his butt, who doesn't want to do anything but train. T
The show doesn't do ANYTHING with this. And I don't just mean angsting over his abandoned swimming career. There's no exploration of the relationship that he had with his father, who must have been an incredibly tough disciplinarian. The desire to live up to, and gain the approval of an authority figure who someone doesn't even like very much has been the basis of many stories in far better shows. Samurai allows Mike to make brief jokes at Kevin's expense in quite a few episodes, but the relationship doesn't develop beyond that.
"The Tengen Gate" claims that a previous pair of Blue and Green Rangers rubbed against each other similar way, but ended up becoming the best of friends. That was obviously supposed to reflect Kevin and Mike's relationship. Except that they aren't really great friends, because Kevin never gets to do anything more significant with Mike other than being the butt of his jokes. NO ONE in this season gets significant alone time. Not Jayden and Antonio, who are supposedly great friends despite never doing anything with each other after age five. Not the two girls, who should naturally relate to each other better than they would with the guys, and seek each other's company from time to time. Emily and Mike had a few scenes alone together, but their relationship is shallow as well. They find each other cute and don't even really act on it. Getting back to Kevin, he SHOULD have a really close relationship with Jayden. They have the same exact dedication to the job, but Jayden is a more much friendly person even though he grew up with even more social isolation. The reasons for that could be interesting, but the subject isn't even touched. The only time I can even remember Kevin and Jayden affecting one another was in "The Ultimate Duel," when the two trained alone together, and when Kevin stepped up as team leader in Jayden's absence. That's it, really.
Where's the story of Kevin riding Emily hard during practice and putting her down? Which would lead to Emily growing into a stronger person who can stand up to bullying (instead of just trying to ignore it), and Kevin learning to lighten the hell up? Where's the story of Mike taking Kevin and Jayden out to town, and having to teach those two weirdos how to have fun and socialize? Where's Kevin's father, who is aSamurai himself and therefore doesn't have an excuse to never show up at the Shiba House?
There's SO MUCH they could be doing with these characters, but aren't. Nobody on this show interacts in a meaningful way.
