to:

** He might feel a bit..uneasy that power rangers tackles homelessness in the first season, since it's technology to the rescue for it, skipping over the complexities of the problem.
*** On a related note, he might like that for the first time in years we have an alien monarch who's not a conquering maniac. Maybe even theorize that KO-35 is in the Lion Galaxy given the "human alien" trope.

Since we've been taking time to think about Linkara's favorite rangers, let's now ponder who his favorite (and least favorite) villains are. Post your guesses below. Due to sheer numbers, lead villains only, though you're welcome to guess favorite underlings in a separate WMG too.

->1. Lord Zedd/Rita Repulsa (MMPR): 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 (In Space): 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.\\

15. The Master (Mystic Forc): 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.\\

->1. Reinforcements From The Future (Series/PowerRangersWildForce - Series/PowerRangersTimeForce): The best definition for a team up according to Linkara. It gives development for both seasons, has great fight scenes (morphed and unmorphed), and contains great foreshadowing for a anniversary team up. The one tiny flaw he has with this team up is that Time Force's theme song isn't anywhere in the episode.

->3. Forever Red (10th Anniversary): Loves the fact that there are 10 previous Red rangers fighting together, it answered all the big questions that were left hanging for awhile, and that it shows the love for a franchise that has reached it's 10th season. Though he admits there a few plot holes there (regained powers for instance) it was heavily burdened by Disney's ExecutiveMeddling, and doesn't like the ProductPlacement at the end.

->5. History and Wormhole (Series/PowerRangersSPD. - Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder): It's a tough one to describe. He likes the story on History having the main three Dino Thunder rangers return and fight with the S.P.D rangers, while in contrast, he prefers the fights in Wormhole since they aren't restricted in a quarry like the rest of the Disney ones. However they don 't have that much impact when compared to other team up episodes.
->6. Time for Lightspeed (Series/PowerRangersTimeForce - Series/PowerRangersLightspeedRescue): LOVES the fact that the teams spend more time together, and also that the teams work so well. Only real complaint he has is the theme songs they used, wishing that they had used the more orchestral ones.

**** He'll despise Victor and Monty for stealing time and focus from the rangers.




to:

** He'll question why multiple episodes have previous theme songs playing during Megazord battles instead of Ninja Steel's theme.
** He'll say that Mick is one of the better mentors for actually mentoring the Rangers at times.

*** Following that, he'll note that despite having an early debut, they take time to introduce the sixth ranger's megazord, and even more time until it combines with the main megazord.

*** He might ask why Levi has a habit of taking selfies with the monsters, asking if the Gold Ranger has his own Instagram account.



*** In addition, he'll may argue that the Red Robo Zord, Dragon Zord, and Kodiak Zord can be considered ninja like, but ask why a truck and train are there if they aren't even close to ninja like.

*** Regardless on whether or not he likes it, he'll at least note it isn't another cell phone morpher, and that it feels similar to the Dino Charge Morphers.

->Series/PowerRangersDinoCharge - It's hard to tell, but it's possible that he liked Shelby best for her complex personality in regard to her background, early relationship with Kendall and gets "quite a bit of development."

Series/PowerRangersDinoCharge - Linkara doesn't exactly hate any of the 10 rangers, although he does admit the extra rangers get the shorter end of the development (most notably Xenowing and James).

3. RJ (Jungle Fury). A funny, friendly guy who the Rangers could easily relate to. His EccentricMentor tendencies set him apart from the more serious mentors. Despite this he was genuinely wise and badass and his advice actually worked.\\

->10. Legendary Battle (20th Anniversary): The ultimate example of wasted potential, noting how the battle feels so underwhelming for all the build-up that it had, due to the fact that it focused more on just showing that "this part of Power Rangers Existed" instead of giving it more depth.

** On that note, he'll aslo mention that the actor playing Orion was also from SuperHuman Samurai SyberSquad

* Will openly wonder if some of the aspects from Beetleborgs (kid heroes, the Mega Blue Beetleborg) inspired Saban to add these features to later Power Ranger seasons.

to:

* He will probably start this review by explaining that there are rumors that VR Troopers would have used the suits as a continuation, but Saban decided to cancel the other series and use the B-Fighter footage for a new series.

* Given his love for comic books, he'll love that the powers were from a in-universe comic book series.

* Will note that there was plans for a second season, but the budget had to go to Lost Galaxy. Whether or not he'll like that choice is up to debate.
** He'll contrast this series with ''Tattooed Teenage Alien Fighters'', noting that the two are the only entirely American Tokusatsu shows.

* He might comment that the "evil family member" plot of this season is interesting in that it's done in reverse. Instead of the family being introduced as a villain and revealed to be the sister/brother, this time they start out seeming normal, only to be revealed to be [[spoiler: working with Madam Odious]]
* He might find it refreshing that we have a traitorous villain again after 4 seasons without one in any major capacity.
** On that note, depending on how the series goes, he'll comment on whether he enjoys Odious or Ripcon are the more interesting villain.

**** The morpher has been brought over, in the form of Levi's camera/camera phone. He may poke fun at it a little for how they had to justify the stock footage of the Gold Ranger's finisher.

*** He'll note that if ''Toqger'' hadn't been skipped, he would be looking at the first orange ranger, something he will be doing in his review of whatever comes after ''Ninja Steel''.



*** Alternatively, he'll be annoyed not by the fact that it's being used for the third time, but rather, that it's being used for a ninja themed team, pointing out that ninjas rely more on avoiding attacks[[note]]he said that he liked the idea of the Mega modes in Samurai because it made sense that Samurai would have armor[[/note]], pointing out that while he could overlook the Battlelizer in Ninja Storm for being a franchise staple, the same can't be said about the Mega modes in Ninja Steel.

** He'll compare the plot twist of Levi being [[spoiler: Brody's brother Aiden]] to that of Nick Russell being the son of Udonna - either he'll say that he likes it here since they actually using a different family relative this time, or he'll complain that it was just as obvious here as it was in ''Mystic Force''.



7. Keeper (Dino Charge). Nothing special, but solid, helpful, capable of fighting, and not using platitudes for cheap writing.\\

Added DiffLines:

**** He doesn't outright say so, but he does say it's a very good show, minus the ending, which he states is a total MindScrew.


Added DiffLines:

**** He doesn't ''hate'' the ending, disliking it because of how much it messes with continuity, but he states that the build up is insane and he likes that aspect.

* 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]].
