So, I totally died off on this meme for a while, and have been doing TWENTY DAYS OF CATCHING UP. However, my personality dictates that I backdate all the entries onto their appropriate days, because... well, because. So my solution for not being rude and making you open twenty tabs of me yammering about children's television, I'm collecting ALL of my answers here and adding the bonus Day 31 [livejournal.com profile] second_batgirl did as penance for falling behind on her meme. If you've been following as I posted, start at Day 11 if you don't want to reread.

Day 30: Favorite Finale

There's a lot to be said for Countdown to Destruction, but if we're going by strength of emotional response, The End of Time hit me SO MUCH HARDER. I cried during Linkara's recap of it, you guys. The story being told in those episodes may not have reached back as far as CtD did, but it reached a whole lot deeper into human experience and emotion, in my opinion. Both were equally epic in scale, but the latter was, for me, thematically heavier, and that scores a lot in my book.

Day 29: Favorite Storyarc/Episode

Favorite Storyarc? Psycho Rangers. I know I've already pointed out during this meme that their arc totally interrupts the season, but I don't care. It's an extremely entertaining interruption, and the extension of the arc into Lost Galaxy worked incredibly well and produced what would be the best teamup if not for Reinforcements From The Future. TJ got to show off his tactical mind, Zhane got to show off his trolling skills, and if not for the Psycho Rangers, there would be no character available who could credibly pull off the kind of threat needed in order to kill Kendrix when Valerie Vernon's health called for it, at that point in the season.

Also, the arc itself was one of the better paced arcs in the show, even if it put the season on pause.

Favorite single episode? Doctor K. Hands down. It's probably the best distillation of the way that RPM refused to treat kids like idiots throughout the run of RPM, and it's just a good episode, besides that. Powerful in and of itself, advancing the series arc, and providing some meaty dramatic irony for the next few episodes, it's just... good.

Day 28: Favorite Under A Spell

It's a tie between VIDA IS A VAMPIRE and the episode of Zeo where everyone hates each other over holidays. Different kinds of fun, but both very enjoyable. The latter is also full of camp (largely supplied by Tanya), and we all know how I love camp. Plus, any appearance by Raymond is Good Times.

Day 27: Favorite Morpher

The OO Trackers, partially because of their major functionality compared to most other morphers, but mostly because the wheel gimmick is awesome and one of the few things that OO didn't fuck up.

Day 26: Favorite Morph Call/Sequence

"It's Morphin' Time!" will always be my favorite morphing call, but I think SPD has the best post-call sequence. The backspring is totally unnecessary, but just plain cool, and it's not like it's happening in the in-show IRL. It's all pretty and technology and yeeeeeah.

Day 25: Favorite Uniforms

Samurai Rangers. They're simple without lacking identity, like the Alien Ranger suits. There's not a disconnect between the suits and the helmets, like in LG. They're not SUPER BUSY like Turbo, and they're not just kind of stupid like the RPM suits.

They're a stylized samurai's robe with a symmetrified kanji on the helmet to tell you their element. All the information you need is there, and none of the useless frippery that sometimes happens. Plus, the powerup looks pretty awesome and feels more like something of the uniform than something on it.

SPD is a close second, tied with MF.

Samurai Rangers also win the unmorphed uniform, because ARMS.

Day 24: Favorite Zord

I have a soft spot for the RPM Ultrazord. Partially because it's a giant clusterfuck of WHUT at every stage, partially because YOU GUYS YOU GUYS I OWN IT.

My actual favorite though, has probably been the Super Zeo Zord, ever since I first saw it. I mean, conceptually, "Hey, it's a bunch of shapes!" is really stupid, and not at all threatening to one's enemy. They just look REALLY COOL.

Also, all Zords with flaming swords get bonus points.

Day 23: Favorite Non-Earth Location

Onyx. Partially because you knew that if Onyx showed up, plot was going to happen, and partially because the idea of not just a Wild West Planet, but a Wild West Planet inhabited only by the bad guys strikes me as pretty awesome, despite the necessity of bad guys to make it work. It was an amazing place, and I hope someday Saban can visit it again. The Gokaiger adaptation is probably the soonest it can sensibly happen, though. Sadface.

Day 22: Favorite Earth Location

Just Angel Grove as a whole. Life there is so (mostly) endearingly strange that I would love to live there, six years of monster attacks and all. Plus, the economy runs on martial arts, and there are people all over the place essentially teaching you HOW TO MINT YOUR OWN MONEY, in light of that. Good times.
