Cuts made to episodes before they were shown on UK tv.




Samurai 2 - "Origins - Part 2"

UK Premiere Airdate: 2 December 2011

Watch on YouTube

During the opening this close up shot of the red ranger's mega blade has been covered up to remove sight of the blade. It starts with the ranger's arm coming round but before you see the blade they replay the same part again but in reverse. The following shot of him spinning the disc also starts as a freeze frame before playing the shot as normal, This was just to fill in time so no audio would be lost. Looks like this edit will be done on all episodes, but it has been missed a few times.


During the morphing sequence this shot of the five rangers pointing their spin swords at the camera was removed.


Blade extends out the top

The green ranger's forest spear was trimmed to remove sight of the blade extending out the top. This cut also removes the audio of the green ranger shouting "Forest Spear". Looks like this shot will be removed every time.


Walking next to fire.The start of a shot of Scorpionic's feet walking next to fire was trimmed. This cut also removes the start of his dialogue "ahh.." right before he says "..there goes the neighbourhood".


When the five rangers attack Scorpionic with their spin swords then individually attack him, the complete shot was played in slow motion so it would cover up the following close-up shot of all five spin swords after the rangers destroy Scorpionic. Removing this shot here is so funny as it appears in the short "Centuries ago in Japan.." intro at the start of this episode and almost every other episode aswell.


During the Megazord combine sequence the shot of the neck-strap attaching was edited, they played the eyes lighting up in slow motion to cover up the part which showed the ends of the neck-strap joining together then tightening around the neck.


While in the megazord the rangers are about to destroy Scorpionic with the Samurai strike, the shot of the camera panning along the megazord's sword was played in slow motion so they could cut away before showing the end of the blade.


Not really a cut, but the very last shot of Mike dancing fades to black as he is moving into this pose. In the US version the screen pauses on this shot for a few seconds then fades to black.
