* Did the people who told him about how the plots of Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger just read Ranger Wiki plot summaries of the episodes, or see episode previews, or hear about it from someone who actually watched the show, then when they explained it to him not really remember & not bother to look it up to make sure their info was correct, or did Linkara really not think to double check Ranger Wiki to make sure the info was 100% correct? During the Super Megaforce retrospective, he constantly gets Gokaiger plot synopses wrong (Shitari of Bones being in the Shinkenger tribute, when he was actually in the part of the Timeranger tribute that was reused Goseiger VS Shinkenger tribute, the ranger costumes in the fight against Lavira being from the first 5 Sentai teams in the original Gokaiger episode when they were from the last 5 teams the Gokaigers got the legendary powers from after finally defeating Basco, many of the episodes that got fused together from the original Gokaiger ones & didn't accommodate the pacing of cherry picking the scenes from each, etc.) when he could've easily fact-checked this stuff & I'm just wondering why he didn't. There's also the fact that fact checking stuff on Ranger Wiki, or even here on TV Tropes for Super Megaforce alone would've shown him that even more stupidity was abound in the season with translations of Sentai names that the writers didn't care to check to see if they had adaptation names. Not to mention that the episodes were, basically, the Gokaiger episodes verbatim with only minor changes to barely accommodate Power Rangers. It's not the first time this has happened, but it IS the most egregious seeing as he had to mention a lot of Gokaiger's plot to make sense of the nonsense because of what I just mentioned.

During the Super Megaforce retrospective, he constantly gets Gokaiger plot synopses wrong (Shitari of Bones being in the Shinkenger tribute, when he was actually in the part of the Timeranger tribute that was reused Goseiger VS Shinkenger tribute, footage from their EarlyBirdCameo, the ranger costumes in the fight against Lavira being from the first 5 Sentai teams in the original Gokaiger episode when they were actually from the last 5 teams the Gokaigers got the legendary powers from after finally defeating Basco, many of the episodes that got fused together from the original Gokaiger ones & didn't accommodate the pacing of cherry picking the scenes from each, etc.) when he could've easily fact-checked this stuff & I'm just wondering why he didn't.

It's not the first time this has happened, but it IS the most egregious seeing as he had to mention a lot of Gokaiger's plot to make sense of the nonsense because of what I just mentioned. Then there's the fact that most of the main antagonists from Gokaiger were wasted as characters & it was Basco who was the most memorable villain in Gokaiger. Stripping him away from Super Megaforce left them with the problem that the main villains were boring, generic villains that they obviously didn't fix whatsoever. Then not having new ranger characters to actually have the traits from their Gokaiger counterparts stripped away all layers of complexity that the series could've hoped to have, since without that, some developments in some of the episodes didn't make a lot of sense to have happened like they did & some other characters didn't get the development they needed as a result. Then there's the fact that Noah & Jake switch fighting styles due to the stock footage & it doesn't make sense & the fact that the planets were reversed for all 6 rangers; the main 5 are from Earth while the 6th is an alien where it was the reverse in Gokaiger. Seriously, why did Linkara not double check these things before recording the videos & avert a major case of CowboyBebopAtHisComputer?

** It's probably also partly due to the episodes being shorter when he first started. I think he was largely going on memory, only watching episodes that effected the status quo mainly and leaving out most of the filler. It was only when he got to the seasons he was unfamiliar with that he had to start watching more of the show. Since "Doomsday" doesn't really effect the status quo outside of its own episode, he probably missed it. After all he even forgot to mention Titanus, something he admitted himself in the next video.

*** Sure, but the full song isn't the intro version, the intro version is just six words no matter which way you put it. I'd say it's nostalgia instead of a legit reason why the LG intro was rushing to tell a story. If he was commenting on the music itself, then sure, I can see what he was saying, but he was referencing lyrics themselves when talking about his opinion on the LG theme.

*** He skipped over Scorpina because he forgot and took potshots at himself for it in the ''MMPR Revision'' AprilFoolsDay review and his review of the Burai's introduction in ''Zyurager''.

** Turns out, he treats it pretty much like other Sentai series: A few comments here and there, and that's it, not going overly detail about it. Which is... a ''good'' thing because watching Shinkenger first was one reason why people in general dislikes Samurai, affected with HypeBacklash.

***** Actually I agree that they should have just told them. It would have stopped them from trying to publicly out them. After all, remember what happened when they actually found out their identities? They selflessly stand up to the MotD and sacrifice that knowledge to protect the rangers. Honestly, it would have made more sense to reveal their identities after that moment.

** It extends past the theme, he complains about the background music and at one point shows a fight with one of the old Mighty Morphin' songs over it and... it sounds awful and completely out of place.
