| (updated 7/26/20) AUGUST 16 UPDATE: Still no word as to what's on the schedule for that first weekend in September, which should shine the brightest light on when new episodes will resume.|
We get "Beast King" on the 23rd and then the sports special "Boxed In" on the 30th. For eight Sundays in a row, they've gone in episode order. Every logical notion would lead one to think they'll finish the nine-episode run with "Secret Struggle" on Sunday, Sept. 6, perfectly opening the door for a Saturday, Sept. 12 premiere showing of "The Evox Snare." And YES -- I'm convinced enough that it's going to happen that way that IT IS NOW a full-blown Official Burg Prediction!
In the past week, we've had an eight-episode marathon of Season 2 Beast Morphers added for August 28 -- the 27th Anniversary of the debut of Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers. The only episode not in the marathon is the sports-themed "Boxed In."
You know what? I goofed in my timing of when to start my jump-the-gun watching of the remaining episodes. The tri-Dino teamup isn't the fifth episode of the resumption -- it's the SIXTH! Why? Because just like "Boxed In" (ep #21 but eighth in show order), the episode "Making Bad" is ep #22 but goes 14th in overall show order and has plot implications that clearly put it as the episode before "Grid Connection." So, how to I make up for my scheduling hiccup? Easy! One episode on Aug. 28, then one on the 29th!
Maybe after that, I'll scale back to an episode every other week, who knows?
COMING IN 2021
POWER MORPHICON 7 OR RANGERSTOP?
The final COVID-19 domino fell a little more than a week ago. Rangerstop, which was scheduled for November in Orlando, Fla., was called off. This comes well after the same decisions were made for Rangerstop & Pop in Atlanta (which would have been in June) and September's Power Morphicon 7 in Pasadena, Calif. Stop & Pop is rescheduled for March 2021 and PMC7 for June 2021. Rangerstop Orlando is an annual event and they'll just move on to the next one in November 2021.
That pushes what I still think is an one-or-the-other decision to 2021. Stop & Pop remains an unlikely option. The June date for PMC 2021 DOES open the door for my usual roommate to attend (right, KentuckyJAM?). But, PMC still sits on my bad side with their decision to not offer refunds. Does that affect my thinking? We'll see how things are in January and/or February, when any sort of convention decision and monetary planning would have to be made.
