Warning: incoming rant.
I consider 5 to be the worst episode of the show. It's not without moments, I mean it has the first Gai vs Grey, first role call, and the firebird attack. That's all cool. However, I HATE Kaori and this episode is why. Okay, hate is a bit strong because she does grow into an acceptable character, but in these early episodes she is quite possibly the worst female ranger ever. In hindsight, that probably was the point of the character, but that doesn't change the fact that's she is useless in the entire series. This episode is when Kaori has hit rock bottom in her uselessness and unlikableness (Not sure those are real words, but I'm going with it).
Okay, picture time! Decided on 3 images each for these episodes. Just because.
I might not like Kaori, but I just love expression on her face in this shot.
Common image, but it looks so good.
From days of long ago comes a legend...
I said good stuff is in this episode. I really like Gai's and Raita's poses in the role call. Gai looks like he's posing for the cover of People.
This makes up for the flying brick mode.
Can Grey be anymore epic?
I really enjoy this episode (even if there's a huge flaw). The first thing that's awesome is the monster. House Dimension is just ridiculous and unique. There's plenty of monsters in this show that's equally original.

I'm not familiar enough with Mazinger Z to make a joke, so...FALCON PUNCH?
