The format of the show makes it really heavy-handed at foreshadowing, but okay. Juhyeuk is quite honestly my favorite shitlord because he made Neo-Deboss pay him in a pyramid of gold ingots PLUS a dish full of gold coins...and he still had the balls to tell them that they only paid enough to contract him to FIGHT the Rangers, not to actually kill them. I love it.

There was also ridiculously obvious CGI...but I'm okay with it for one reason--it made the zord battle more interesting. See, the zord battles have always been the part that bored me the most in Power Rangers and Sentai. All respect to the art and to the stuntmen in those bulky suits, but they need to design them in a way that can move more easily. Look at Ultraman--those are simple suits for the heroes and heavier ones for the monsters. Figure out how to make a detailed suit that will allow the kind of acrobatics we get there. The CGI helped a lot to convey that King Ptera Brave completely outclassed them. You felt every hit. He was too strong, too fast, and altogether too skilled. THIS is how you introduce an evil Ranger. The Dino Force never landed a hit. I don't want to see the suit acting disappear altogether, but if this helps every once in a while to convey a brutal attack, then I'm okay with it.

Also, props to them for trying to think their way out of this bad situation. Purun reasons that if Juhyeuk is a mercenary, then because he's obscenely wealthy, they could try paying him to change sides. But Sechang is hesitant--not because of any moral problem, but because he's worried about how it will look for him if his fans find out that he paid off a mercenary to stop attacking him. Admittedly, these characters need some serious work to get out of their very archetypical personalities, but hey, that debate was good to see.
