‘A Pressing Engagement’ (MMPR) (TV)


Please feel free to comment on my review.

This is a Jason-focused episode from the ‘Power Rangers’ TV series. In this episode, Jason is trying to break a fitness record with bench-pressing. During the episode, Jason doubts his ability to succeed. His friends comfort and reassure him, but Bulk with Skull ridicules Jason for trying to beat his record.

Meanwhile, Rita has other ideas for Jason as she attempts to separate him from the other Rangers during a monster fight. Rita is a pretty petty villainess this way, isn’t she? She soon sends Goldar as well as the King Sphinx monster to fight Jason as the Red Ranger once he gets summoned into battle.

This is another filler episode for the ‘Power Rangers’ series in its first season. It’s not a great episode by any means and is not very memorable. But it’s decent enough and nice to see Jason needing the help of his friends when he is separated from them. Zordon also helps to send the other Rangers in.

There are some very weird moments during the episode used for comedic effect. One is when Kimberley’s blowing a bubble during Jason’s bench-pressing (why did she do that?!) before Zach crashes into her on his skateboard. Another is when Bulk rips open his ‘pants’ after he tackles Jason.

The Megazord fight with Goldar and King Sphinx is impressive than the one in ‘Day of the Dumpster’. In the fight, the Megazord gets to use the Power Sword and defeat King Sphinx which is good. But as in ‘Day of the Dumpster’, Goldar retreats again. Is Goldar allergic to the Megazord’s Power Sword?!

‘A Pressing Engagement’ (MMPR) rating – 6/10
