*** Jossed regarding the Super Megaforce cameo; Super Megaforce aired, and not only did Turbo not get a tribute episode, Linkara didn't make any cameo (although considering how he felt about that season, it's probably for the best). However, Saban HAS said that they are OK with the videos being made as long as Linkara uses footage from legit sources (hence the reason why, even though Dino Charge has finished airing, he is waiting for the [=DVDs=] for the series to be released).

* He'll compare Kit Taylor to Peter Parker, both because the two are young heroes who are finding their ways in the world and know that With Great Power ComesGreatResponsibility, [[spoiler: and both gain a black suit to temporarily replace the red one]].
** Tying into this, when he sees Wrath's Time Vent card, he'll wish that he had it in real life [[RunningGag so he could undo]] ''ComicBook/OneMoreDay''.
* While he might not have a problem with how short [[StarterVillain Incisor]] appears, he might dislike that Camo has such a short appearance, since his Final Vent, Advent Beast, and his Copy Vent[[note]]his most powerful card - in ''Ryuki'', Copy Vent allowed Camo's Ryuki counterpart, Verde, to copy his opponent's appearance and abilities; if the Wii game is to be believed, Camo has this ability, but he never uses it in the show[[/note]].


Added DiffLines:

** If his updated review of ''Turbo'' is anything to go by, it doesn't bother him as much in this series as it did in Turbo, since it was established from the beginning that the heroes were kids in ''Beetleborgs'', whereas Justin was a kid hero brought into a series about teenage super heroes. However, there's nothing to suggest how he feels about it.

->1. Lord Zedd/Rita Repulsa. Likes Lord Zedd's design, and notes together they had more victories against the rangers than any other villain. Lewis actually confirmed in a PO unboxing video that his favourite villain was Zedd.\\
2. Astronema. Loves her no-nonsense attitude, plans, and her story arc throughout the season after her [[TheReveal reveal]]. And the fact she returns next season to become the new pink ranger is also well handled.\\
3. Heckyl: "A delight." Intelligent, patient, manipulative, wonderful acting combination, and a nice character beat before his redemption.\\
4. Venjix. He likes his voice, his robot bodies, and calls him "The darkest and most effective villain in the series history" since he almost won before the series even began.\\
5. Trakeena: Complex, emotionally "deeper" by comparison, had a great sendoff with her father, and a solid final battle before the team up.\\
6. Sledge: Great Design, an interesting character dynamic with Poissandra, a great base, and he's a different kind of villain in the sense of him being a simple minded brute with great power compared with so many of the others.\\
7. Mesogog. Menacing, dark, with great work on his jaw, and the first villain definitively motivated by racism.\\
8.Dai Shi/Jerrod. Always growing, willing to take on the rangers himself, and an interesting duality between who Dai Shi could be and who Jerrod turned out to be.\\
9. Emperor Grumm. Legitimately dark, with a serious empire and actually blew up planets. But a little boring, with some issues in storytelling, and not even the biggest bad of his series. But on the other hand, he's among the most effective villains in the series, with diversionary tactics to gain things he wanted and almost accomplishing his plans.\\
10. Ransik. Despite some interest in his motivation, his love for his daughter and his power, not nearly as sympathetic or interesting as some other villains.\\
11. Master Org. Psycho, but with an interesting backstory. Mystery in his development, and an awesome final battle with his overwhelming power.\\
12. The Machine Empire: Due to growing pains, never quite made the impression they needed to for Zeo.\\

14. Lord Archenon: Has some power, is the guy who set things in motion, and his ending scene seems to imply some kind of weakness in his character that adds a slight bit of interest.\\
15. The Master. Unfortunately despite his presence behind the whole show, he didn't do much until the end. Imperius had the most potential out of the villains, but didn't go anywhere.\\
16. Queen Bansheera. Boring and needlessly cruel, though at least somewhat intimidating.\\
17. Emperor Mavro: He prefers his son, Prince Vrak, and considers Mavro to barely be a blip on his radar. He does admit to being impressed by the Emperor being able to fight Troy and Orion while still seated.\\
18. Snide: Aggressive, Impatient, and kinda dumb.\\
19. Lothor. Finds his comedic preference terrible, and disliked how many dumb moves he made. Although he did praise him on his fighting skills.\\
20. Divatox. The one he hates the most out of all the villains. Whines a lot, has a confusing reason for taking over the world despite being a space pirate, and is frustrated that it's her that ends up destroying the Power Chamber and beating the Power Rangers. However, he at least found her intimidating, and she did get her comeuppance in ''In Space'', which leaves the bottom spot to...\\
21. Master Xandred. Of all the villains, he's called the most boring/generic. Even if he hated other villains, at least they had some intimidation factor, but Xandred gets the bottom of the pile.

13. The Villains of Overdrive: A bit on the weird side. He saidthat he liked Flurious the most for waiting until the end when everyone else is gone, and even liked the sibling rivalry between him and Moltar. However, he found Kamdor and Miratrix's motivations odd, and dislike the Fear Cats for being evil for evil sake. He concludes the main problem with the villain factions is that each of them lacked depth.\\

*** He'll address the fact that the ranger uses a guitar as a weapon. Either he'll start adding a second RunningGag to his show related to ninja electric guitars (in this case, he'll say "Modern Ninja Electric Guitar") or he'll retire the Ancient Ninja Electric Guitar RunningGag.

*** He'll bring up Saban skipping ''Zyuohger'', and speculate that it might be Saban falling behind due to Nickelodeon's "20 episodes per season" rule that results in them having to skip sentai series; and ''Kyuranger'' probably got picked because the 2 space themed Power Rangers series are more well liked than the 2 animal themed ones. He'll bring up Bandai of America being involved with the source material, and note that the cube gimmick from ''Zyuohger'' wasn't seen as feasible.

** Regardless of which Sentai gets adapted, he'll note that this is the third time in a row that Power Rangers is using a previously used team theme for the third time - if it's ''Zyuohger'', it'll be the third non-dinosaur animal themed team (the first being ''Wild Force'', and the second being ''Jungle Fury''), and note that if they had adapted ''Go-Busters'', this would be the fourth team with animals as a motif; if it's ''Kyuuranger'', it'll be the third space themed team (the first being ''In Space'', and the second being ''Lost Galaxy''), but note that this is the first time Saban is adapting a sentai that's also space themed[[note]]''Megaranger'', the sentai ''In Space'' was adapted from, was video game and device themed, while ''Series/SeijuuSentaiGingaman'', the sentai ''Lost Galaxy'' was adapted from, was a nature themed series[[/note]]. He will also note that this is the first time Power Rangers has had an orange ranger.

definition of a "Sixth Ranger", due to the fact that the rangers who are the sixth members to join the team (the PR! Counterparts of Balance/Naga Ray) are part of the core team, whereas the one who joins after the core team is assembled (the PR! counterpart of Shou Ranpou) is the 10th ranger.
*** He'll note that due to the way the Zords can be configured, the PR! Kyuren-Oh has the most combinations of any Megazord in the franchise[[note]]1,680 combinations - and that's from the core 9 alone; if Koguma Skyblue's voyager is included, the total rises to 3024, and when combined with the Ryutei-Oh into Kyuren Ryutei-Oh, the total is '''60,480'''[[/note]], and understand why they don't show every combination. He'll note that it gives a bit of motivation for fans to actually buy the Zord toy, noting that if there's a specific combination they want to see, they can just make it themselves.

* He'll wonder why they call the show what it's called, noting that they aren't even called "Alien Fighters" in the show, and they are usually called "Galactic Sentinels", wondering why they didn't just use that name, noting that it at least sounds better than the mouthful the actual title.


Added DiffLines:

** He'll contrast this series with ''Tattooed Teenage Alien Fighters'', noting that the two are the only entirely American Tokusatsu shows.
