[What follows is a list of all episodes of Power Rangers: in Space. I took the episode descriptions straight off the back of my VCD's and they do contain spoilers. So don't read if you don't want to spoil the surprise! On the other hand, if you ever intend to watch the show and just want to know what happened, you should get a pretty good idea by reading below.]
[Additionaly, a few seconds of bloopers were shown at the end of each episode of Power Rangers: in Space, alongside the credits. Unfortunatly, around the time I started to watch PR:iS, the Fox Network began to replace the bloopers with ads. However, lucky for us, there are people out there who watched the show from the start. What follows below this introduction are their reports. Thanks to them, I now have all of Mel's Bloopers from PR:iS (at least I think I do -- if anyone knows of one i missed, please let me know). I've been trying to get them online so other fans could enjoy them forever, but never had the space. Fortunatly, a friend of mine agreed to host them on Kazaa (a Peer to Peer file sharing system).]
[A few notes on that. You'll have to download the file sharing software before you can get the bloopers. Files are only online as long as whoever has them is online (and the number grows with each new person who downloads them). Right now it looks like there are only a couple people with them all, so you might have to keep an eye out. A good time to find them online seems to be around 4PM CST. You should search for "Melody Perkins" and "melbloop" to find them all. There are 20 small files and 1 big one (18 of the small files in one). Small file names are "melbloop01" to "melbloop18" as well as "evilizer" and "whenpush." The big one is called "pris bloopers." Good luck finding them and enjoy!]
[Final note for those interested; the VCDs have two episodes per CD (except for the Special Movie Edition, which has three) and the first is always missing it's bloopers. (Other than that and a slight -195ms lipsynch delay, the VCDs of PR:iS are great quality and alot of fun ot watch!) If anyone has more info or the bloopers themselves, corrections, additions, etc ... I'd greatly appreciate your getting in touch with me. Now onto the Episodes! :) ]
From Out Of Nowhere - Part 1

She was nice enough to put all these on tape and send them to me all the way from Australia! Thanks Ash!! And hey, she's got her own Melody website chock full of pictures, check it out.]
[Blooper from Ashley.]
Astronema tries to keep a straight face, but couldn't help bursting out laughing. The other double Astronema steps out, looking really confused (to me anyway)
The red ranger was giving Astronema the morpher and Astronema held onto his hand for too long. Andros goes "You can let go of my hand now!" and Astronema lets go, blinking at him sweetly as he walks away. I think she looked really embarrassed!
Survival Of The Silver

The LunaTick monster attacks the Megaship. He attacks again with Hideons, causing a malfunction in Zhane's healing chamber. Zhane is alive and well, defending the Megaship against the intruders.

The Rangers are in danger, forcing Zhane to delay his date to help his friends.
[Blooper from Ashley.]
Astronema was lying down on the ground, looking up at Zhane I think, and she rolls over, laughing.
Then she reaches for this piece of fruit or something and says "Should I have not done that?"
Astronema was wearing this basket looking funny hat, sunglasses and doing this funny dance.
Then she takes a piece of cake (it looks like) and she and the crews burst out laughing.

[Blooper from Ashley.]
Astronema whirls around, looking very cross and says "the red ranger, my brother? what a fool he takes me for!" Then Ecliptor saying something like "I'll make mince meat out of it!" and Astronema goes" and he'll pay dearly for it, I promise you." She stops for a sec then mutters "Forgot my line."

The Rangers use their three Megazords to try and change the asteroid's course, but they just aren't strong enough ….

[Blooper from Ashley.]
A voice of Dark Specter starts off. "You are my most capable servant, yet you are unable to find who is draining my powers." Then Astronema says "I assure you Dark Specter, my armies are searching tirelessly for the traitor that drains your powers." Her last word catches in a cough and she bends down to cough. Then she straightens up and says something in a laugh.
Astronema was walking towards the Psycho Rangers and just doing her lines. When she reached Psycho Red, he starts talking to her in a different language. Then she says that she didn't understand a word he said.
Five Of A Kind
As the Ranger teens try to figure out how to defeat the Psycho Rangers, TJ realizes that as long as the Psychos fight the Ranger of his or her own color, they'll beat the Rangers every time. If all the Rangers are the same color, how will the Psychos know who to fight? This ploy is used in the next fight with successful results.
[Blooper from Ashley.]

Ghosts In The Machine
The Rangers locate Astronema's Secret City under a distant alien ocean. She has a new device that dematerializes people and turns them into Data Cards. She plans to use this machine to capture and destroy the Rangers once and for all. When the Rangers become Data Cards, the Psycho Rangers reappear to destroy any record of them.
[Blooper from Ashley.]
A data card comes out of the machine and Astronema reaches to get it. But the data card was sucked in again and out and in and then Astronema goes "Stop!" in a squeaking voice.
The Impenetrable Web
Astronema lures the Rangers to Forza. Once the heroes leave the vessel, she surrounds the ship with a web of lasers, so the Rangers cannot get back on board. Zhane comes to the aid of his friends in his new Silver Galactic Rover. Red Ranger uses his Battelized Ranger armor to burst through the web surrounding the Megaship.
[Blooper from Ashley.]
Ecliptor starts of by saying "you guys, what are the magic words to get this internet connection working?" Astronema turns around and says "Activate the web!" and bends down laughing. When she stands up again, Ecliptor goes "UH...don't you have some laundry to do?" (I'm not sure if it was Ecliptor was Dark S.)
I think Andros says this "You can keep your wig if you can blink your right eye." Astronema blinks her left instead and says "wait, let me try again please!" in a laugh and tries again.
A Line In The Sand
A weird tank-like monster, Tankenstein, attacks the Rangers and transports them to a vast desert. The Rangers join together to defeat the creature, but all the Ranger's weapons combined are no match for the evil monster. Zhane shows up in the Silver Galactic Rover and saves the day.
Countdown To Destruction Part 1

The Alien Rangers, Gold Ranger, Phantom Ranger and Blue Centurion are all captured by the forces of evil. Astronema and Ecliptor declare their victory to the people of Earth.
[Blooper from Ashley.]
Astronema clutches her face and covers it with her hands, looking really weak (as part of her act) then she says "I'm not evil." When she said EVIL, her voice echoed into this really weird voice like a ghosts and she turns around immediately.
Then she spins around saying "Move in, lets take earth once and for all! ... Oops! ... sorry!" and hops back.
Countdown To Destruction Part 2
Andros goes to the Dark Fortress, hoping to find Astronema and convince her not to destroy Earth. He breaks onto the Dark Fortress and finds Zordon, who tells him he must destroy Zordon's tube and release the good energy stored within it to defeat the forces of evil. When Andros hesitates, he is attacked by Astronema and Ecliptor. Andros manages to destroy the tube, and the energy turns the minions to sand and the evil villains into beautiful people.
[Blooper from Ashley.]
Astronema pushes the red ranger REALLY hard (since she had to according to her act) and she couldn't help laughing. Then she throws Andros really hard onto the ground and she waves her hands in the air crying, "YAAAAY!!"
Then she stands on top of a building next to Ecliptor, saying "Destroy them all!" to the angel grove people. She points her wrath staff at them but lowers it and starts giggling about something. The she says something to the crews, still giggling.
Finally, she sticks her tongue out at the camera ... like she was really tired.
