    Honestly, I don't know why I even bothered turning up...
    Quick note: Things are going to be super busy for me IRL for the next two or three weeks, and that's before I can even think about the festive period. So I may not be able to make the regular episode posts during December...and quite frankly given how disappointing I have found Zi-O I may not be rushing to get caught up in the new year. So if you wish to discuss an episode and there isn't a thread, please pick up the slack and hit that "Post New Episode" button.

    This week: Sougo comes back from three days in the future and somehow this enrages both Tsukuyomi and Woz even though every story in this series completely messes up the timeline anyway, Woz allies himself with the Time Jackers, I must admit having oranges drop down onto their heads is a pretty good nod to Gaim, a tiny melon mecha, silent slapstick, bikes are still the key to transporting between Helheim and Earth, Kaito is returned to both Earth and life, Geiz remembered the chicken, and the future looks both orange and magenta!

    Episode 12:
    I am still very confused. They didn't do a very good job of explaining why Sougo needed to go 3 days into the past, nor why he needed to keep his reasons for time traveling a secret. If I am understanding things correctly, he knew that Woz would try to betray him, so he had to mislead Woz about what he was doing. Though I will say, I got the biggest belly laugh of all time when I saw that little watch trying to beat up Schwartz, only to get tossed in the portal anyways. And poor Kouta, so underused in this episode. His godhood self and Kaito had a bigger part in these 2 episodes than anything. Quite the change in direction for Toei, if you think about it...

    GOKAIGER: You gotta EARN it before you can use our Super Sentai powers!
    ZI-O: Oh, you need this watch? Sure! Go ahead, it's all yours.

    What did I just watch?
