* He'll mention how if the series had been successful, Saban would have eventually have had to have gone ''backwards'' for footage, since ''Black RX'' was the most recent ''Kamen Rider'' series, and it wouldn't be until the year 2000[[note]]the year that ''Series/KamenRiderKuuga'', the first Heisei-era KR series, began to air[[/note]] that they would have been able to use a new series. He'll find himself wondering how they would have adapted the extremely gorey ''Series/KamenRiderAmazon''. Hell also wonder how they would have explained the costumes looking different if they had kept Dex as the main character, noting that while they might have been able to pass off the suit from Black as being Dex's, they would have had a VERY hard time passing off any of the pre-ZX suits as Dex's.

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: For an unconventional episode, he'll do a review/mini-Let's Play of VideoGame/ChromaSquad]]
Because it's heavily inspired by Power Rangers, not to mention he gets a shout-out in the game. Plus, who wouldn't want to see what Linkara's Power Rangers squad would look like?

[[WMG: Guesses for existing videos]]

to:

[[WMG: Guesses At some point Saban or someone high up will find and watch the videos and like them enough to name a future ranger after Linkara.]]
* This is just something that I've had in my head
for existing videos]]a while and it would be nice.
** Well, Linkara did become a member of the "Power Force", which includes at least one person who's had a monster named after him. And "Lewis" would be a pretty good ranger name.
** Or maybe Saban will just bring him in Super Megaforce as the Green Nostalgia Ranger from the [[Series/PowerRangersTurbo Turbo]] [[Recap/TheNostalgiaCriticS6E11 episode]] of WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic.
*** 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. 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).

[[WMG: Once he reaches all seasons, we'll get a retrospective series where he counts down favorite Rangers, episodes, storylines, etc.]]
Basically, like an epilogue to the series, of sorts.
* And some of the components will include best season, most underrated season, best fight, best stand alone season, coolest costumes, best villains, best character, worst (insert thing here).
* Given that there's an unproven fact that Power Rangers is unkillable, this may never happen depending on if Saban can keep the series going indefinitely.
* Alternatively, he will do a retrospective to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Power Rangers
** In his Mystic Force review, he has said when he finishes that he'd try to do a video to correct any mistakes he had made.

[[WMG: Franchise/PowerRangers and LordOfTheRings]]
* Linkara will point out how Spencer in OO was Butterbur in the Fellowship and in RPM Dr. K's actress showed up in The Two Towers. Hopefully he'll find someone who was in Return of the King.
** He'll also point out how Master Mao in Jungle Fury had a supporting role in the latter two Matrix movies. Why? Rule of Nerd.

[[WMG: Some of the patreon reviews will be for Super Sentai seasons]]
Not all of them, but specifically the ones that either accomplished their ideas better than Power Rangers did (Goseiger, Gokaiger), were completely different (Gingaman, Go-onger), or skipped (Dairanger, Go-Busters, or anything before Zyuranger).
* Well, part of this happened -- he reviewed the first five episodes of ''Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger'' as a Patreon-sponsored episode.

[[WMG: Linkara's next [[AwesomeMusic awesomely]] [[{{Tearjerker}} tearjerking]] {{end of an era}} AMV in HOPR will be set to:]]

[[folder: Predictions for how Linkara ranks various aspects of Power Rangers]]
[[WMG: A list of Lewis's favorite Power Rangers Series.]]
ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. Here's my guesses on what are his current favorite series's are. Will be updated as more reviews come out. Feel free to post your own speculations below. -Tropers/EricW
->1.Series/PowerRangersInSpace (He stated this was his favorite season in the Time Force review with strong villains, a theme on the nature of evil, memorable fights, a superb ending and all around more epic than the seasons before it).\\
2.Series/PowerRangersRPM (A difficult call on its positioning, and the shaky cam, odd plot points in regards to the apokalypse, and the astronema parallels do hold it down, along with borderline issues with Ziggy, Gem and Gemma. But with different filming techniques, interesting and understandable rangers, a premise that is mature, epic and funny, one of the best mentors, serious stakes, and a ton of ambition, it really felt like Linkara enjoyed this series. Not as much as In Space due to that series having better villains overall, but still possibly the best standalone season).\\
3.Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder (A recommended series. Despite bad payoff over so many different ideas, and some anticlimactic final battles, there are good characters all around both good and evil, mostly fantastic action, and good humor).\\
4.Series/PowerRangersTimeForce (Despite being overblown by the fans and oodles of time travel plot holes, there are good villains, great acting, strong action, time travel themes, and almost all the characters are interesting).\\
5. Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers (despite nostalgia value, too many fillers to place it any higher).\\
6. Series/PowerRangersZeo (Triumph and another step forward with more complex magic/technology balancing, but growing pains with the machine empire, some writing issues, and of course, character flatness).\\
7. Series/PowerRangersLostGalaxy (for strong themes and character development as well as a mostly solid story after it got going, but numerous behind-the-scenes problems hit the show hard).\\
8. Series/PowerRangersSPD (A recommended series, with good character development, storylining, and villains... but not all characters got the development, and a decent bit of time was devoted to discussing technical problems)\\
9.Series/PowerRangersJungleFury (Great rangers, interesting lead villains, fantastic kung fu action and great character development with good acting. However, it still carries some technical burdens, has some writing issues, and the story while interesting wasn't as well developed as say Lost Galaxy).\\
10.Series/PowerRangersWildForce (underrated with excellent team ups and complex villains, but with a very iffy story).\\
11.Series/PowerRangersLightspeedRescue (decent with good characters, zords and a different feel, but no good villains).\\
12.Series/PowerRangersMysticForce (Like Ninja Storm, good when great, bad when bad, with less likable rangers then annoying ones, a sub-par theme song and too much focus on the world-building. Even so, Linkara gave it an overall recommendation).\\
13.Series/PowerRangersNinjaStorm (A "flawed" series that is great when good, awful when bad, and has only one good villain out of a much larger stand alone evil group).\\
14.Series/PowerRangersSamurai (A bad season filled with cultural mistranslations, bad acting, parental and ChildSoldier issues with the main rangers, a mentor InNameOnly, unsatisfying subplot conclusions, and a main villain that's even less intimidating than Lothor. However, it still has good moments such as the opening music, the HD resolution, the teamup, and the return of Bulk).\\
15.Series/PowerRangersTurbo (Until Operation Overdrive, this was, in his opinion, the worst season ever with a destruction of the old order in a horrible way with a stupid archenemy and no easily identifiable theme, but it did still have great music, fights, an epic ending, and even some ambitious episodes)\\
16.Series/PowerRangersMegaForce (Suffering MASSIVE HypeBacklash from being the 20th anniversary season, Megaforce as seen by Linkara isn't so much bad as it's lazy. With bad acting, only 1 character arc, too many continuity issues to count, poor writing, anticlimaxes, and overall, just a bad experience. Despite this though, his least favorite is still...)\\
17.Series/PowerRangersOperationOverdrive (Bad music, bad pacing, mixed acting, kallishsplosion addled fights, a horrible teamup, and bad characters, though with some redeemable qualities such as Spencer, the [=iMack reveal=] and some nice back story for the 6th ranger).

* I would switch Zeo and Wild Force due to him speaking generally positive of Wild Force at the end and with no noted positivity or negativity towards Zeo. Although I could be biased as a Wild Force Fan.
** You are a biased Wild Force fan, even if he said it wasn't AS bad as fans say he still criticized it a lot. He was much less critical of Zeo.
* Zeo and Wild Force may rank higher than Galaxy due to Zeo's themes of triumph and having the added bonus of continuing the story from the previous season with returning characters whereas Galaxy had such troubled production, the first quarter of the season was noted as being slow and many of its characters received little to no development, especially Maya and Damon.
* Mystic Force will probably be No. 10.
* Seems like Turbo should rank above Samurai - while he isn't fond of Turbo, he specifically stated in his Operation Overdrive review that there is a lot of stuff he liked about it, while the best thing he's said about Samurai is that it's watchable. Also, he's stated that while he does find Time Force to be very good, it was a bit overhyped in his opinion, so it should be a little lower.

[[WMG: Linkara's favorite ranger from each season]]
Sometimes it's really obvious who his favorite ranger is and other times it's a lot more difficult to tell.
->Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers - No one is particular, he might have a soft spot for Billy for obvious reasons but he seems to like them all equally, at least the original cast. In the updated review, he says Zack is his favorite for his fun loving attitude, weird but effective fighting style, and is only one of the main five to have a story arc (trying to win over Angela's love)\\
Series/PowerRangersZeo - Same as MMPR. He didn't really start analyzing the rangers until Lost Galaxy so it's hard to tell. Bulk and Skull are his real favorites.\\
Series/PowerRangersTurbo - Cassie. He singles her out the most and is the only one of the four replacements he takes time to analyze.\\
Series/PowerRangersInSpace - Andros. He likes character development and Andros had plenty. However, this is his favorite season so he probably loves everyone.\\
Series/PowerRangersLostGalaxy - Kinda vague. Maybe Leo who became a true red leader, overcame his impulsiveness and destroyed Trakeena (the first time).\\
Series/PowerRangersLightspeedRescue - Carter. Obviously, surely by now, we all know this, he might even be Linkara's favorite ranger in the franchise.\\
Series/PowerRangersTimeForce - Katie. He says so in the review. Twice actually.\\
Series/PowerRangersWildForce - It's very hard to tell. Probably Taylor for her neat character development thanks to the team up, differing attitude to the rest of the team and strong demeanor.\\
Series/PowerRangersNinjaStorm - Cam. He likes his selflesness, despite his rudeness.\\
Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder - This is clearly in his top two/three seasons so he may love everyone equally. One of the main reasons why likes this season so much is that none of the rangers are left out in development. But if he had to pick a favorite, it would probably be Trent (for his great character arc) or Tommy (for being the awesome mentor and coming up with a neat little character arc for him despite it being fan wank).\\
Series/PowerRangersSPD - Since he likes to see characters develop and grow his favorite is probably Sky but this another favorite season of his, so he could like everyone (except maybe Syd).\\
Series/PowerRangersMysticForce - Chip. He says so in the review.\\
Series/PowerRangersOperationOverdrive - He seems to like Rose the most out of the rangers, judging from a few of his tweets.\\
Series/PowerRangersJungleFury - He doesn't really seem to have a definite favorite between Casey and RJ.\\
Series/PowerRangersRPM - Overall, Linkara liked Doctor K the most, saying she was his favorite character. Among the Rangers, while he didn't have a explicit favorite, he seemed to really like Ziggy and Scott.\\
Series/PowerRangersSamurai - He seems to like Mike the most, calling him noble despite his antics (it also helps that in his character analysis, Mike seems to have the least issue). He also praises the acting prowess of Lauren's actress. Non-ranger, he still likes Bulk.\\
Series/PowerRangersMegaforce - Robo Knight, citing that he was the only ranger to have a real arc (namely his progression from caring only about protecting the environment to valuing humans enough to make a HeroicSacrifice for one) and finding his Robocop voice endearing.

Speculation for future seasons:

->Series/PowerRangersDinoCharge - From the core 5, maybe Shelby for her ingenuity and complex and fun personality, or Ivan, calling him a lot like Chip. However, given that there's going to be 10 rangers before long, he'll have plenty of people to choose from.

[[WMG: Linkara's least favorite ranger from each season]]
->Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers - No one in particular but he does criticize Tommy for [[SpotlightStealingSquad hogging screentime]] and while he doesn't dislike the replacement rangers, he does give them grief for having little to no personality. And he also hates the Aquitian Rangers voices.\\
Series/PowerRangersZeo - Again, no one in particular.\\
Series/PowerRangersTurbo - Justin. He admits that he doesn't really hate Justin as a character, going as far to call him the only competent character in the season, just the concept surrounding him.\\
Series/PowerRangersInSpace - Zhane. He calls him an arrogant and smug bastard but as mentioned before In Space is his favorite season, so he doesn't really dislike anyone.\\
Series/PowerRangersLostGalaxy - Maya. For being kinda weird and unrealistic but he doesn't seem to hate her either.\\
Series/PowerRangersLightspeedRescue - Dana. Refers to her as the blandest of the group.\\
Series/PowerRangersTimeForce - Lucas. Probably the first ranger that he flat out dislikes.\\
Series/PowerRangersWildForce - He didn't seem too fond of Merrick, calling him the lamest sixth ranger yet.\\
Series/PowerRangersNinjaStorm - Hard to pinpoint. Even though he thinks Ninja Storm is a flawed season, he doesn't seem to have a problem with the rangers themselves. He did snark that Hunter soon became as bland as the rest of the group, implying that he may not think they develop much. Even then, Hunter at least had a bit more abrasiveness at first. So his least favorite is probably Blake for being the blandest of the team.\\
Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder - Conner. He basically and bluntly calls him an idiot. Even still, judging by how much he liked Dino Thunder, he may still like Conner and just called him an idiot because he is one.\\
Series/PowerRangersSPD - Sam. Because, you know, he's freakin ball of light!\\
Series/PowerRangersMysticForce - Nick. He is one of, if not the only, Red Ranger to actively suggest simply giving up, an attitude that Linkara can't seem to abide in a leader.\\
Series/PowerRangersOperationOverdrive - Dax. He's stupid and annoying and doesn't grow out of this. He even says so.\\
Series/PowerRangersJungleFury - He enjoys all the rangers for the most part, but he seems to dislike Lily the most with a lack of a character arc and less of an intricacy compared with the others.\\
Series/PowerRangersRPM - Difficult to say. While he mentions that Summer is underdeveloped and possibly not as awesome as Flynn who was in the same way, I think that due to the twin talk, Gem and Gemma get the bottom of the barrel, though not without their interesting components on being like children.\\
Series/PowerRangersSamurai - He mentions that Mia gets the shortest end of the character development stick. Non-ranger, he really hates Mentor Ji due to him barely being a mentor at all and how he takes Antonio's morpher just because he isn't supposed to be part of the team.\\
Series/PowerRangersMegaforce - Most probably Troy, due to his robotic acting and being the series' usual mouthpiece for shallow 'never surrender' and 'humans are awesome' platitudes. In terms of non-Rangers, he finds Gosei a useless mentor who exists only to hand out a ridiculous number of power-ups with no effort on the Rangers' part.

And for future seasons:

->Series/PowerRangersDinoCharge - Probably [[spoiler: Xenowing]], just because he arrived so late in the game.

[[WMG: Linkara's main villain scale]]

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. Astronema. Loves her no-nonsense attitude, plans, and her story arc throughout the season after her [[TheReveal reveal]].\\
2. Lord Zedd/Rita Repulsa. Likes Lord Zedd's design, and notes together they had more victories against the rangers than any other villain.\\
3. 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.\\
4. Mesogog. Menacing, dark, with great work on his jaw, and the first villain definitively motivated by racism.\\
5. Trakeena: Complex, emotionally "deeper" by comparison, had a great sendoff with her father, and a solid final battle before the team up.\\
6.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.\\
7. 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.\\
8. 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.\\
9. Master Org. Psycho, but with an interesting backstory. Mystery in his development, and an awesome final battle with his overwhelming power.\\
10. The Machine Empire: Due to growing pains, never quite made the impression they needed to for Zeo.\\
11. The Villains of Overdrive: A bit on the weird side. He notes that he likes Flurious the most for waiting until the end when everyone else is gone, and like the sibling rivalry between him and Moltar. However, he found Kamdor and Miratrix's motivation odd, and dislike the Fear Cats for being evil for evil sake. He concludes the main problem with the villain faction is that each of them lacked depth.\\
12. The Master.\\
13. Queen Bansheera. Boring and needlessly cruel, though at least somewhat intimidating.\\
14. 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.\\
15. Lothor. Finds his comedic preference terrible, and disliked how many dumb moves he made. Although he did praise him on his fighting skills.\\
16. 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.\\
17. 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.

[[WMG: Linkara's favorite mentor scale]]

->1. Zordon (MMPR-In Space). The classic talking head. Zordon was a wise, CrazyPrepared mentor yet he was genuinely concerned about the Rangers who pulled a HeroicSacrifice at the GrandFinale to save the world.\\
2. Dr. K (RPM). Linkara did not mention her mentoring capabilities (he probably did not expect much from a TeenGenius with NoSocialSkills), but he praised her tragic backstory, her CharacterDevelopment, and her actress' performance.\\
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.\\
4. Tommy Oliver (Dino Thunder). Linkara questioned Tommy's dinosaur research but he ultimalely liked how he had grown since his Mighty Morphin' days. Linkara also liked Tommy's subplot involving him being a ShellShockedVeteran.\\
5. Doggie Kruger (SPD). He wasn't as well developed a character as the above characters, and not showing the PTSD as often as he could. But he was still wise, patient, awesome and willing to get tough with others when needed (most of the time).\\
6. Udonna (Mystic Force). Showed her stripes by teaching magic to total novices, and often pushing her students, with some interesting character beats.\\
7. Captain Mitchell (Lightspeed Rescue). Sometimes got a bit evasive with his instructions to the rangers at first, but he got better, and despite having to follow on the tails of Zordon, proved to be a capable mentor with personal connections to rangers and the mission.\\
8. Andrew Hartford (Operation Overdrive). A shady mentor who sometimes kept unnecessary secrets. However, Linkara liked how Hartford was willing to join the team as the Red Ranger. Linkara also liked the subplot involving him creating iMack.\\
9. Sensei Watanabe (Ninja Storm). Bizarre mentor for Linkara, and the whole Guinea Pig thing didn't exactly help.\\
10. Princess Shayla (Wild Force). TheLoad.\\
11. Mentor Ji (Samurai). An uppity, snobby dickhead who rejected Antonio because Antonio did not come from a Samurai heritage. He contributed less to the team than [[PowerRangersOperationOverdrive Spencer]], a ''butler'' and his advices were crappy and inconsistent.\\
12. Gosei (Mega Force). A glorified plot device with no characterization. Gosei only existed to provide exposition (which he ''failed'') and pull random power ups out of his, uh, mouth.

[[folder: Predictions for looks at Power Rangers-esque series]]
Linkara has stated that if he reaches the goal on his Patreon account that he will look at series in the same vein as ''Power Rangers'' (i.e., ''Masked Rider, Beetleborgs, VR Troopers''), so, fellow tropers, let's hear it - make your predictions for these similar series.

[[WMG: Predictions for his look at ''Series/MaskedRider'']]
* He'll mention how if the series had been successful, Saban would have eventually have had to have gone ''backwards'' for footage, since ''Black RX'' was the most recent ''Kamen Rider'' series, and it wouldn't be until the year 2000[[note]]the year that ''Series/KamenRiderKuuga'', the first Heisei-era KR series, began to air[[/note]] that they would have been able to use a new series. He'll find himself wondering how they would have adapted the extremely gorey ''Series/KamenRiderAmazon''.
* He'll mention other times that there were rumors about Saban attempting to adapt ''Kamen Rider'' a second time - the first time being around the time that ''Samurai'' aired[[note]]Shinkenger, the Sentai that ''Power Rangers Samurai'' was adapted from, had 2 episodes that were a crossover with ''Series/KamenRiderDecade'', and Saban had reportedly bought those episodes[[/note]], and the second time being when ''Dino Charge'' was announced[[note]]The trailer had a [[Main/FreezeFrameBonus blink and you'll miss it shot]] of ''Kamen Rider Wizard'', which caused people to wonder if Saban had renewed the ''Power Rider'' license and planned to adapt ''Wizard''[[/note]].
** When he mentions the first example, he'll note that the rumors about what the ''Power Rangers Samurai'' counterpart of Decade were that he would either be Dex Stuart himself (who would have become the king of Edenoi after Count Dregon was defeated, and the Masked Rider suit changed to reflect his position as Royalty), or Dex's son (who would have inherited the powers from his father, and the rider suit would have also transformed into new powers).
* He'll mention that, originally, Kamen Rider's English title was ''Masked Rider'' (i.e., ''Masked Rider V3'', ''Masked Rider Black''), but the official name was changed to ''Kamen Rider'' to avoid association with this series, and how when Steve Wong produced the [[Series/KamenRiderDragonKnight other American Adaptation of Kamen Rider]], he had to convince Ishimori Productions to let him keep it as ''Kamen Rider'' instead of use ''Masked Rider'', like they wanted him to.
* He'll recreate the Masked Warriors scene using various other members of TGWTG, and have them screw up their names on purpose[[note]]for example, he'll have The Nostalgia Critic introduce himself as Bennett the Sage, Bennett introduce himself as the Cinemasnob, The Cinemasnob introduce himself as The Rap Critic, and so on[[/note]].
* Ferbus will make him miss Lerigot.
* If his review of ''A Friend in Need'' is anything to go by, he'll be negative towards the series, but not to the same degree as his reviews of ''Turbo'' or ''Operation Overdrive'' - he'll probably be about as negative to this series as he was towards ''Samurai'' and ''Megaforce''.
* He'll bring up how ''Black RX'''s [[Creator/ShotaroIshinomori creator]] did not like the adaptation, and basically prevented Saban from adapting any more Kamen Rider series in the future.

[[WMG: Predictions for his look at ''Series/KamenRiderDragonKnight'']]
* He'll give a rather positive review in comparison to his ''Masked Rider'' review.
* He'll mention that the producers originally wanted to adapt either ''Series/KamenRiderBlade'' or ''Series/KamenRiderFaiz'', and speculate what it would have been like if ''Dragon Knight'' had been successful and they had adapted other KR series, looking at clips of both series. And he'll be irritated when he sees that in ''Faiz'', the TransformationTrinket is a cell phone, but then happy when he sees that in ''Blade'', it uses cards.
* He'll snark at the fact that the transformation phrase is "Kamen Rider", and show clips of various Power Rangers transforming that he's dubbed over - first he'll start off normally, simply saying "Power Ranger" when they transform (using a clip of a season he loves or likes but is aware of it's flaws), and he'll use a few more, dubbing over more goofy lines (maybe ending it with a ranger he dislikes, and instead of saying "Power Ranger", he'll say something insulting - bonus points if he ends with Dax, and says "Guy who needs to shut up").
* He'll note that if the company responsible for ''Dragon Knight'' had adapted any series made after ''Series/KamenRiderKiva'', they could have worked with Saban to adapt the crossovers between Super Sentai and Kamen Rider[[note]]with the exception of ''Series/KamenRiderDouble'', which did not crossover with ''Series/TensouSentaiGoseiger'', the sentai series that aired alongside it, either in movies or TV specials[[/note]], and note that ''Power Rangers'' and ''Masked Rider'' crossed over first. He'll also wonder how they would have handled the crossovers between ''Gobusters'' and ''Fourze'' or ''[=ToQger=]'' and ''Gaim'' if ''Fourze'' or ''Gaim'' had been adapted, since the Sentai series in those crossovers were skipped by Saban.
** He'll also wonder if any of those other adaptations would have had a character watching an episode of ''Series/PowerRangersTimeForce'' as a call-back to the scene in that series where one of the villains watched an episode of ''Masked Rider''.
* He'll note that the last few episodes were posted online instead of aired on TV, and note that it was only because of the CW's rule at the time[[note]]Said rule is that new shows start in January, and end in December; and ''Dragon Knight'' didn't finish it's run by New Year's[[/note]], saying that the network did actually really like the show, choosing not to cancel it despite it's low ratings, but then wonder why they didn't just marathon the show's last few episodes instead of releasing them online and leaving TV-only viewers in the dark.

[[WMG: Predictions for his look at ''Series/VRTroopers'']]
* He'll most likely mention the Cybetron pilot, and how it was originally suppose to star Jason David Frank.
** Additionally, he'll bring up that Brad Hawkins was originally was suppose to be the White Ranger in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, but Saban decided to bring back Tommy.
* He'll be confused as to why Saban decided to use two (later three) different Metal Hero (Series/ChojinkiMetalder, Series/JikuuSenshiSpielban, and Series/SpaceSheriffShaider) series to adapting VR Troopers when their group appearances are limited to American footage.
** Bonus points if he ends up using that to take a cheap shot at ''Megaforce''/''Super Megaforce''.
** On that note, he'll mention that the footage looks old because all three of the Metal Hero footage was released in the 80's.
* Will hate the Battle Grid fight scenes since they look terrible and cheap.
** Might mention that the helmets are the MMPR Red Ranger repainted.
* Might not like how the series ended on a cliffhanger, and notes it will be a recurring problem in other series
* He'll make at least one Code Lyoko reference.

[[WMG: Predictions for his look at ''Series/SuperHumanSamuraiSyberSquad'']]
* Will give a brief mention that Matthew Lawrence would later appear in Series/BoyMeetsWorld.
* Might like the design of Xenon and Drago as Megazord Esq figures, and how they can convert to armor for Servo.
* He'll make another Bill and Ted reference when discussing how Sam uses an electric guitar to morph.
** He'll also bring up Ninja Storm's electric guitar morpher again.

[[WMG: Predictions for his look at ''Series/TattooedTeenageAlienFightersFromBeverlyHills'']]
* He'll cram it full of as many references to ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'' as possible. For the stinger, he'll use the clip from episode 19 and go "Huh, that's a real show''.
** Bonus points if he gets the entire cast to narrate it, only using his regular voice during the introduction, and only reading a few lines using the same voice he used for the elder Namekian in episode 16.
* He'll make a joke about ''Power Rangers Megaforce'' at least once when talking about Orion.
* Will most likely mention that WebVideo/MarzGurl did a review of this already, but he's going to do it anyways for a more inclusive analysis
* Might mention that DIC also created SuperHuman Samurai, which aired a month before this series
* Might reference Operation Overdrive, and call this team more obnoxious and selfish than that team.
* Will call this the worst Power Rangers-esque series ever.

[[WMG: Predictions for his look at ''Series/BigBadBeetleborgs'']]
* 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
* It's a toss up on how he feels that kids are the heroes. He'll either hate the idea in the first place, or be the same neutral stance as with Power Rangers Turbo (not a bad actor, but bad concept).
* Given his love for comic books, he'll love that the powers were from a in-universe comic book series.
** He might even like that because of it, the kids know what the monsters are and their arsenal in the start.
* Will definitely mention the "Curse of the Shadowborg" multi parter.
* Might make comparisons on the "Metalix Rising saga" with Power Rangers Zeo's "A Zeo Beginning" in terms of new powers.
* Might bring up Sam from S.P.D. again when he gets to the Astral Borgs.

[[WMG: At some point Saban or someone high up will find and watch the videos and like them enough to name a future ranger after Linkara.]]
* This is just something that I've had in my head for a while and it would be nice.
** Well, Linkara did become a member of the "Power Force", which includes at least one person who's had a monster named after him. And "Lewis" would be a pretty good ranger name.
** Or maybe Saban will just bring him in Super Megaforce as the Green Nostalgia Ranger from the [[Series/PowerRangersTurbo Turbo]] [[Recap/TheNostalgiaCriticS6E11 episode]] of WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic.
*** 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. 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).

[[WMG: Once he reaches all seasons, we'll get a retrospective series where he counts down favorite Rangers, episodes, storylines, etc.]]
Basically, like an epilogue to the series, of sorts.
* And some of the components will include best season, most underrated season, best fight, best stand alone season, coolest costumes, best villains, best character, worst (insert thing here).
* Given that there's an unproven fact that Power Rangers is unkillable, this may never happen depending on if Saban can keep the series going indefinitely.
* Alternatively, he will do a retrospective to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Power Rangers
** In his Mystic Force review, he has said when he finishes that he'd try to do a video to correct any mistakes he had made.

[[WMG: Franchise/PowerRangers and LordOfTheRings]]
* Linkara will point out how Spencer in OO was Butterbur in the Fellowship and in RPM Dr. K's actress showed up in The Two Towers. Hopefully he'll find someone who was in Return of the King.
** He'll also point out how Master Mao in Jungle Fury had a supporting role in the latter two Matrix movies. Why? Rule of Nerd.

[[WMG: Some of the patreon reviews will be for Super Sentai seasons]]
Not all of them, but specifically the ones that either accomplished their ideas better than Power Rangers did (Goseiger, Gokaiger), were completely different (Gingaman, Go-onger), or skipped (Dairanger, Go-Busters, or anything before Zyuranger).
* Well, part of this happened -- he reviewed the first five episodes of ''Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger'' as a Patreon-sponsored episode.

[[folder: Predictions for how Linkara ranks various aspects of Power Rangers]]
[[WMG: A list of Lewis's favorite Power Rangers Series.]]
ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. Here's my guesses on what are his current favorite series's are. Will be updated as more reviews come out. Feel free to post your own speculations below. -Tropers/EricW
->1.Series/PowerRangersInSpace (He stated this was his favorite season in the Time Force review with strong villains, a theme on the nature of evil, memorable fights, a superb ending and all around more epic than the seasons before it).\\
2.Series/PowerRangersRPM (A difficult call on its positioning, and the shaky cam, odd plot points in regards to the apokalypse, and the astronema parallels do hold it down, along with borderline issues with Ziggy, Gem and Gemma. But with different filming techniques, interesting and understandable rangers, a premise that is mature, epic and funny, one of the best mentors, serious stakes, and a ton of ambition, it really felt like Linkara enjoyed this series. Not as much as In Space due to that series having better villains overall, but still possibly the best standalone season).\\
3.Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder (A recommended series. Despite bad payoff over so many different ideas, and some anticlimactic final battles, there are good characters all around both good and evil, mostly fantastic action, and good humor).\\
4.Series/PowerRangersTimeForce (Despite being overblown by the fans and oodles of time travel plot holes, there are good villains, great acting, strong action, time travel themes, and almost all the characters are interesting).\\
5. Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers (despite nostalgia value, too many fillers to place it any higher).\\
6. Series/PowerRangersZeo (Triumph and another step forward with more complex magic/technology balancing, but growing pains with the machine empire, some writing issues, and of course, character flatness).\\
7. Series/PowerRangersLostGalaxy (for strong themes and character development as well as a mostly solid story after it got going, but numerous behind-the-scenes problems hit the show hard).\\
8. Series/PowerRangersSPD (A recommended series, with good character development, storylining, and villains... but not all characters got the development, and a decent bit of time was devoted to discussing technical problems)\\
9.Series/PowerRangersJungleFury (Great rangers, interesting lead villains, fantastic kung fu action and great character development with good acting. However, it still carries some technical burdens, has some writing issues, and the story while interesting wasn't as well developed as say Lost Galaxy).\\
10.Series/PowerRangersWildForce (underrated with excellent team ups and complex villains, but with a very iffy story).\\
11.Series/PowerRangersLightspeedRescue (decent with good characters, zords and a different feel, but no good villains).\\
12.Series/PowerRangersMysticForce (Like Ninja Storm, good when great, bad when bad, with less likable rangers then annoying ones, a sub-par theme song and too much focus on the world-building. Even so, Linkara gave it an overall recommendation).\\
13.Series/PowerRangersNinjaStorm (A "flawed" series that is great when good, awful when bad, and has only one good villain out of a much larger stand alone evil group).\\
14.Series/PowerRangersSamurai (A bad season filled with cultural mistranslations, bad acting, parental and ChildSoldier issues with the main rangers, a mentor InNameOnly, unsatisfying subplot conclusions, and a main villain that's even less intimidating than Lothor. However, it still has good moments such as the opening music, the HD resolution, the teamup, and the return of Bulk).\\
15.Series/PowerRangersTurbo (Until Operation Overdrive, this was, in his opinion, the worst season ever with a destruction of the old order in a horrible way with a stupid archenemy and no easily identifiable theme, but it did still have great music, fights, an epic ending, and even some ambitious episodes)\\
16.Series/PowerRangersMegaForce (Suffering MASSIVE HypeBacklash from being the 20th anniversary season, Megaforce as seen by Linkara isn't so much bad as it's lazy. With bad acting, only 1 character arc, too many continuity issues to count, poor writing, anticlimaxes, and overall, just a bad experience. Despite this though, his least favorite is still...)\\
17.Series/PowerRangersOperationOverdrive (Bad music, bad pacing, mixed acting, kallishsplosion addled fights, a horrible teamup, and bad characters, though with some redeemable qualities such as Spencer, the [=iMack reveal=] and some nice back story for the 6th ranger).

* I would switch Zeo and Wild Force due to him speaking generally positive of Wild Force at the end and with no noted positivity or negativity towards Zeo. Although I could be biased as a Wild Force Fan.
** You are a biased Wild Force fan, even if he said it wasn't AS bad as fans say he still criticized it a lot. He was much less critical of Zeo.
* Zeo and Wild Force may rank higher than Galaxy due to Zeo's themes of triumph and having the added bonus of continuing the story from the previous season with returning characters whereas Galaxy had such troubled production, the first quarter of the season was noted as being slow and many of its characters received little to no development, especially Maya and Damon.
* Mystic Force will probably be No. 10.
* Seems like Turbo should rank above Samurai - while he isn't fond of Turbo, he specifically stated in his Operation Overdrive review that there is a lot of stuff he liked about it, while the best thing he's said about Samurai is that it's watchable. Also, he's stated that while he does find Time Force to be very good, it was a bit overhyped in his opinion, so it should be a little lower.

[[WMG: Linkara's favorite ranger from each season]]
Sometimes it's really obvious who his favorite ranger is and other times it's a lot more difficult to tell.
->Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers - No one is particular, he might have a soft spot for Billy for obvious reasons but he seems to like them all equally, at least the original cast. In the updated review, he says Zack is his favorite for his fun loving attitude, weird but effective fighting style, and is only one of the main five to have a story arc (trying to win over Angela's love)\\
Series/PowerRangersZeo - Same as MMPR. He didn't really start analyzing the rangers until Lost Galaxy so it's hard to tell. Bulk and Skull are his real favorites.\\
Series/PowerRangersTurbo - Cassie. He singles her out the most and is the only one of the four replacements he takes time to analyze.\\
Series/PowerRangersInSpace - Andros. He likes character development and Andros had plenty. However, this is his favorite season so he probably loves everyone.\\
Series/PowerRangersLostGalaxy - Kinda vague. Maybe Leo who became a true red leader, overcame his impulsiveness and destroyed Trakeena (the first time).\\
Series/PowerRangersLightspeedRescue - Carter. Obviously, surely by now, we all know this, he might even be Linkara's favorite ranger in the franchise.\\
Series/PowerRangersTimeForce - Katie. He says so in the review. Twice actually.\\
Series/PowerRangersWildForce - It's very hard to tell. Probably Taylor for her neat character development thanks to the team up, differing attitude to the rest of the team and strong demeanor.\\
Series/PowerRangersNinjaStorm - Cam. He likes his selflesness, despite his rudeness.\\
Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder - This is clearly in his top two/three seasons so he may love everyone equally. One of the main reasons why likes this season so much is that none of the rangers are left out in development. But if he had to pick a favorite, it would probably be Trent (for his great character arc) or Tommy (for being the awesome mentor and coming up with a neat little character arc for him despite it being fan wank).\\
Series/PowerRangersSPD - Since he likes to see characters develop and grow his favorite is probably Sky but this another favorite season of his, so he could like everyone (except maybe Syd).\\
Series/PowerRangersMysticForce - Chip. He says so in the review.\\
Series/PowerRangersOperationOverdrive - He seems to like Rose the most out of the rangers, judging from a few of his tweets.\\
Series/PowerRangersJungleFury - He doesn't really seem to have a definite favorite between Casey and RJ.\\
Series/PowerRangersRPM - Overall, Linkara liked Doctor K the most, saying she was his favorite character. Among the Rangers, while he didn't have a explicit favorite, he seemed to really like Ziggy and Scott.\\
Series/PowerRangersSamurai - He seems to like Mike the most, calling him noble despite his antics (it also helps that in his character analysis, Mike seems to have the least issue). He also praises the acting prowess of Lauren's actress. Non-ranger, he still likes Bulk.\\
Series/PowerRangersMegaforce - Robo Knight, citing that he was the only ranger to have a real arc (namely his progression from caring only about protecting the environment to valuing humans enough to make a HeroicSacrifice for one) and finding his Robocop voice endearing.

Speculation for future seasons:

->Series/PowerRangersDinoCharge - From the core 5, maybe Shelby for her ingenuity and complex and fun personality, or Ivan, calling him a lot like Chip. However, given that there's going to be 10 rangers before long, he'll have plenty of people to choose from.

[[WMG: Linkara's least favorite ranger from each season]]
->Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers - No one in particular but he does criticize Tommy for [[SpotlightStealingSquad hogging screentime]] and while he doesn't dislike the replacement rangers, he does give them grief for having little to no personality. And he also hates the Aquitian Rangers voices.\\
Series/PowerRangersZeo - Again, no one in particular.\\
Series/PowerRangersTurbo - Justin. He admits that he doesn't really hate Justin as a character, going as far to call him the only competent character in the season, just the concept surrounding him.\\
Series/PowerRangersInSpace - Zhane. He calls him an arrogant and smug bastard but as mentioned before In Space is his favorite season, so he doesn't really dislike anyone.\\
Series/PowerRangersLostGalaxy - Maya. For being kinda weird and unrealistic but he doesn't seem to hate her either.\\
Series/PowerRangersLightspeedRescue - Dana. Refers to her as the blandest of the group.\\
Series/PowerRangersTimeForce - Lucas. Probably the first ranger that he flat out dislikes.\\
Series/PowerRangersWildForce - He didn't seem too fond of Merrick, calling him the lamest sixth ranger yet.\\
Series/PowerRangersNinjaStorm - Hard to pinpoint. Even though he thinks Ninja Storm is a flawed season, he doesn't seem to have a problem with the rangers themselves. He did snark that Hunter soon became as bland as the rest of the group, implying that he may not think they develop much. Even then, Hunter at least had a bit more abrasiveness at first. So his least favorite is probably Blake for being the blandest of the team.\\
Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder - Conner. He basically and bluntly calls him an idiot. Even still, judging by how much he liked Dino Thunder, he may still like Conner and just called him an idiot because he is one.\\
Series/PowerRangersSPD - Sam. Because, you know, he's freakin ball of light!\\
Series/PowerRangersMysticForce - Nick. He is one of, if not the only, Red Ranger to actively suggest simply giving up, an attitude that Linkara can't seem to abide in a leader.\\
Series/PowerRangersOperationOverdrive - Dax. He's stupid and annoying and doesn't grow out of this. He even says so.\\
Series/PowerRangersJungleFury - He enjoys all the rangers for the most part, but he seems to dislike Lily the most with a lack of a character arc and less of an intricacy compared with the others.\\
Series/PowerRangersRPM - Difficult to say. While he mentions that Summer is underdeveloped and possibly not as awesome as Flynn who was in the same way, I think that due to the twin talk, Gem and Gemma get the bottom of the barrel, though not without their interesting components on being like children.\\
Series/PowerRangersSamurai - He mentions that Mia gets the shortest end of the character development stick. Non-ranger, he really hates Mentor Ji due to him barely being a mentor at all and how he takes Antonio's morpher just because he isn't supposed to be part of the team.\\
Series/PowerRangersMegaforce - Most probably Troy, due to his robotic acting and being the series' usual mouthpiece for shallow 'never surrender' and 'humans are awesome' platitudes. In terms of non-Rangers, he finds Gosei a useless mentor who exists only to hand out a ridiculous number of power-ups with no effort on the Rangers' part.

And for future seasons:

->Series/PowerRangersDinoCharge - Probably [[spoiler: Xenowing]], just because he arrived so late in the game.

[[WMG: Linkara's main villain scale]]

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. Astronema. Loves her no-nonsense attitude, plans, and her story arc throughout the season after her [[TheReveal reveal]].\\
2. Lord Zedd/Rita Repulsa. Likes Lord Zedd's design, and notes together they had more victories against the rangers than any other villain.\\
3. 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.\\
4. Mesogog. Menacing, dark, with great work on his jaw, and the first villain definitively motivated by racism.\\
5. Trakeena: Complex, emotionally "deeper" by comparison, had a great sendoff with her father, and a solid final battle before the team up.\\
6.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.\\
7. 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.\\
8. 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.\\
9. Master Org. Psycho, but with an interesting backstory. Mystery in his development, and an awesome final battle with his overwhelming power.\\
10. The Machine Empire: Due to growing pains, never quite made the impression they needed to for Zeo.\\
11. The Villains of Overdrive: A bit on the weird side. He notes that he likes Flurious the most for waiting until the end when everyone else is gone, and like the sibling rivalry between him and Moltar. However, he found Kamdor and Miratrix's motivation odd, and dislike the Fear Cats for being evil for evil sake. He concludes the main problem with the villain faction is that each of them lacked depth.\\
12. The Master.\\
13. Queen Bansheera. Boring and needlessly cruel, though at least somewhat intimidating.\\
14. 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.\\
15. Lothor. Finds his comedic preference terrible, and disliked how many dumb moves he made. Although he did praise him on his fighting skills.\\
16. 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.\\
17. 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.

[[WMG: Linkara's favorite mentor scale]]

->1. Zordon (MMPR-In Space). The classic talking head. Zordon was a wise, CrazyPrepared mentor yet he was genuinely concerned about the Rangers who pulled a HeroicSacrifice at the GrandFinale to save the world.\\
2. Dr. K (RPM). Linkara did not mention her mentoring capabilities (he probably did not expect much from a TeenGenius with NoSocialSkills), but he praised her tragic backstory, her CharacterDevelopment, and her actress' performance.\\
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.\\
4. Tommy Oliver (Dino Thunder). Linkara questioned Tommy's dinosaur research but he ultimalely liked how he had grown since his Mighty Morphin' days. Linkara also liked Tommy's subplot involving him being a ShellShockedVeteran.\\
5. Doggie Kruger (SPD). He wasn't as well developed a character as the above characters, and not showing the PTSD as often as he could. But he was still wise, patient, awesome and willing to get tough with others when needed (most of the time).\\
6. Udonna (Mystic Force). Showed her stripes by teaching magic to total novices, and often pushing her students, with some interesting character beats.\\
7. Captain Mitchell (Lightspeed Rescue). Sometimes got a bit evasive with his instructions to the rangers at first, but he got better, and despite having to follow on the tails of Zordon, proved to be a capable mentor with personal connections to rangers and the mission.\\
8. Andrew Hartford (Operation Overdrive). A shady mentor who sometimes kept unnecessary secrets. However, Linkara liked how Hartford was willing to join the team as the Red Ranger. Linkara also liked the subplot involving him creating iMack.\\
9. Sensei Watanabe (Ninja Storm). Bizarre mentor for Linkara, and the whole Guinea Pig thing didn't exactly help.\\
10. Princess Shayla (Wild Force). TheLoad.\\
11. Mentor Ji (Samurai). An uppity, snobby dickhead who rejected Antonio because Antonio did not come from a Samurai heritage. He contributed less to the team than [[PowerRangersOperationOverdrive Spencer]], a ''butler'' and his advices were crappy and inconsistent.\\
12. Gosei (Mega Force). A glorified plot device with no characterization. Gosei only existed to provide exposition (which he ''failed'') and pull random power ups out of his, uh, mouth.

[[folder: Predictions for looks at Power Rangers-esque series]]
Linkara has stated that if he reaches the goal on his Patreon account that he will look at series in the same vein as ''Power Rangers'' (i.e., ''Masked Rider, Beetleborgs, VR Troopers''), so, fellow tropers, let's hear it - make your predictions for these similar series.

[[WMG: Predictions for his look at ''Series/MaskedRider'']]
* He'll mention how if the series had been successful, Saban would have eventually have had to have gone ''backwards'' for footage, since ''Black RX'' was the most recent ''Kamen Rider'' series, and it wouldn't be until the year 2000[[note]]the year that ''Series/KamenRiderKuuga'', the first Heisei-era KR series, began to air[[/note]] that they would have been able to use a new series. He'll find himself wondering how they would have adapted the extremely gorey ''Series/KamenRiderAmazon''.
* He'll mention other times that there were rumors about Saban attempting to adapt ''Kamen Rider'' a second time - the first time being around the time that ''Samurai'' aired[[note]]Shinkenger, the Sentai that ''Power Rangers Samurai'' was adapted from, had 2 episodes that were a crossover with ''Series/KamenRiderDecade'', and Saban had reportedly bought those episodes[[/note]], and the second time being when ''Dino Charge'' was announced[[note]]The trailer had a [[Main/FreezeFrameBonus blink and you'll miss it shot]] of ''Kamen Rider Wizard'', which caused people to wonder if Saban had renewed the ''Power Rider'' license and planned to adapt ''Wizard''[[/note]].
** When he mentions the first example, he'll note that the rumors about what the ''Power Rangers Samurai'' counterpart of Decade were that he would either be Dex Stuart himself (who would have become the king of Edenoi after Count Dregon was defeated, and the Masked Rider suit changed to reflect his position as Royalty), or Dex's son (who would have inherited the powers from his father, and the rider suit would have also transformed into new powers).
* He'll mention that, originally, Kamen Rider's English title was ''Masked Rider'' (i.e., ''Masked Rider V3'', ''Masked Rider Black''), but the official name was changed to ''Kamen Rider'' to avoid association with this series, and how when Steve Wong produced the [[Series/KamenRiderDragonKnight other American Adaptation of Kamen Rider]], he had to convince Ishimori Productions to let him keep it as ''Kamen Rider'' instead of use ''Masked Rider'', like they wanted him to.
* He'll recreate the Masked Warriors scene using various other members of TGWTG, and have them screw up their names on purpose[[note]]for example, he'll have The Nostalgia Critic introduce himself as Bennett the Sage, Bennett introduce himself as the Cinemasnob, The Cinemasnob introduce himself as The Rap Critic, and so on[[/note]].
* Ferbus will make him miss Lerigot.
* If his review of ''A Friend in Need'' is anything to go by, he'll be negative towards the series, but not to the same degree as his reviews of ''Turbo'' or ''Operation Overdrive'' - he'll probably be about as negative to this series as he was towards ''Samurai'' and ''Megaforce''.
* He'll bring up how ''Black RX'''s [[Creator/ShotaroIshinomori creator]] did not like the adaptation, and basically prevented Saban from adapting any more Kamen Rider series in the future.

[[WMG: Predictions for his look at ''Series/KamenRiderDragonKnight'']]
* He'll give a rather positive review in comparison to his ''Masked Rider'' review.
* He'll mention that the producers originally wanted to adapt either ''Series/KamenRiderBlade'' or ''Series/KamenRiderFaiz'', and speculate what it would have been like if ''Dragon Knight'' had been successful and they had adapted other KR series, looking at clips of both series. And he'll be irritated when he sees that in ''Faiz'', the TransformationTrinket is a cell phone, but then happy when he sees that in ''Blade'', it uses cards.
* He'll snark at the fact that the transformation phrase is "Kamen Rider", and show clips of various Power Rangers transforming that he's dubbed over - first he'll start off normally, simply saying "Power Ranger" when they transform (using a clip of a season he loves or likes but is aware of it's flaws), and he'll use a few more, dubbing over more goofy lines (maybe ending it with a ranger he dislikes, and instead of saying "Power Ranger", he'll say something insulting - bonus points if he ends with Dax, and says "Guy who needs to shut up").
* He'll note that if the company responsible for ''Dragon Knight'' had adapted any series made after ''Series/KamenRiderKiva'', they could have worked with Saban to adapt the crossovers between Super Sentai and Kamen Rider[[note]]with the exception of ''Series/KamenRiderDouble'', which did not crossover with ''Series/TensouSentaiGoseiger'', the sentai series that aired alongside it, either in movies or TV specials[[/note]], and note that ''Power Rangers'' and ''Masked Rider'' crossed over first. He'll also wonder how they would have handled the crossovers between ''Gobusters'' and ''Fourze'' or ''[=ToQger=]'' and ''Gaim'' if ''Fourze'' or ''Gaim'' had been adapted, since the Sentai series in those crossovers were skipped by Saban.
** He'll also wonder if any of those other adaptations would have had a character watching an episode of ''Series/PowerRangersTimeForce'' as a call-back to the scene in that series where one of the villains watched an episode of ''Masked Rider''.
* He'll note that the last few episodes were posted online instead of aired on TV, and note that it was only because of the CW's rule at the time[[note]]Said rule is that new shows start in January, and end in December; and ''Dragon Knight'' didn't finish it's run by New Year's[[/note]], saying that the network did actually really like the show, choosing not to cancel it despite it's low ratings, but then wonder why they didn't just marathon the show's last few episodes instead of releasing them online and leaving TV-only viewers in the dark.

[[WMG: Predictions for his look at ''Series/VRTroopers'']]
* He'll most likely mention the Cybetron pilot, and how it was originally suppose to star Jason David Frank.
** Additionally, he'll bring up that Brad Hawkins was originally was suppose to be the White Ranger in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, but Saban decided to bring back Tommy.
* He'll be confused as to why Saban decided to use two (later three) different Metal Hero (Series/ChojinkiMetalder, Series/JikuuSenshiSpielban, and Series/SpaceSheriffShaider) series to adapting VR Troopers when their group appearances are limited to American footage.
** Bonus points if he ends up using that to take a cheap shot at ''Megaforce''/''Super Megaforce''.
** On that note, he'll mention that the footage looks old because all three of the Metal Hero footage was released in the 80's.
* Will hate the Battle Grid fight scenes since they look terrible and cheap.
** Might mention that the helmets are the MMPR Red Ranger repainted.
* Might not like how the series ended on a cliffhanger, and notes it will be a recurring problem in other series
* He'll make at least one Code Lyoko reference.

[[WMG: Predictions for his look at ''Series/SuperHumanSamuraiSyberSquad'']]
* Will give a brief mention that Matthew Lawrence would later appear in Series/BoyMeetsWorld.
* Might like the design of Xenon and Drago as Megazord Esq figures, and how they can convert to armor for Servo.
* He'll make another Bill and Ted reference when discussing how Sam uses an electric guitar to morph.
** He'll also bring up Ninja Storm's electric guitar morpher again.

[[WMG: Predictions for his look at ''Series/TattooedTeenageAlienFightersFromBeverlyHills'']]
* He'll cram it full of as many references to ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'' as possible. For the stinger, he'll use the clip from episode 19 and go "Huh, that's a real show''.
** Bonus points if he gets the entire cast to narrate it, only using his regular voice during the introduction, and only reading a few lines using the same voice he used for the elder Namekian in episode 16.
* He'll make a joke about ''Power Rangers Megaforce'' at least once when talking about Orion.
* Will most likely mention that WebVideo/MarzGurl did a review of this already, but he's going to do it anyways for a more inclusive analysis
* Might mention that DIC also created SuperHuman Samurai, which aired a month before this series
* Might reference Operation Overdrive, and call this team more obnoxious and selfish than that team.
* Will call this the worst Power Rangers-esque series ever.

[[WMG: Predictions for his look at ''Series/BigBadBeetleborgs'']]
* 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
* It's a toss up on how he feels that kids are the heroes. He'll either hate the idea in the first place, or be the same neutral stance as with Power Rangers Turbo (not a bad actor, but bad concept).
* Given his love for comic books, he'll love that the powers were from a in-universe comic book series.
** He might even like that because of it, the kids know what the monsters are and their arsenal in the start.
* Will definitely mention the "Curse of the Shadowborg" multi parter.
* Might make comparisons on the "Metalix Rising saga" with Power Rangers Zeo's "A Zeo Beginning" in terms of new powers.
* Might bring up Sam from S.P.D. again when he gets to the Astral Borgs.

[[WMG: A list of Lewis's favorite Power Rangers Series.]]
ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. Here's my guesses on what are his current favorite series's are. Will be updated as more reviews come out. Feel free to post your own speculations below. -Tropers/EricW
->1.Series/PowerRangersInSpace (He stated this was his favorite season in the Time Force review with strong villains, a theme on the nature of evil, memorable fights, a superb ending and all around more epic than the seasons before it).\\
2.Series/PowerRangersRPM (A difficult call on its positioning, and the shaky cam, odd plot points in regards to the apokalypse, and the astronema parallels do hold it down, along with borderline issues with Ziggy, Gem and Gemma. But with different filming techniques, interesting and understandable rangers, a premise that is mature, epic and funny, one of the best mentors, serious stakes, and a ton of ambition, it really felt like Linkara enjoyed this series. Not as much as In Space due to that series having better villains overall, but still possibly the best standalone season).\\
3.Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder (A recommended series. Despite bad payoff over so many different ideas, and some anticlimactic final battles, there are good characters all around both good and evil, mostly fantastic action, and good humor).\\
4.Series/PowerRangersTimeForce (Despite being overblown by the fans and oodles of time travel plot holes, there are good villains, great acting, strong action, time travel themes, and almost all the characters are interesting).\\
5. Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers (despite nostalgia value, too many fillers to place it any higher).\\
6. Series/PowerRangersZeo (Triumph and another step forward with more complex magic/technology balancing, but growing pains with the machine empire, some writing issues, and of course, character flatness).\\
7. Series/PowerRangersLostGalaxy (for strong themes and character development as well as a mostly solid story after it got going, but numerous behind-the-scenes problems hit the show hard).\\
8. Series/PowerRangersSPD (A recommended series, with good character development, storylining, and villains... but not all characters got the development, and a decent bit of time was devoted to discussing technical problems)\\
9.Series/PowerRangersJungleFury (Great rangers, interesting lead villains, fantastic kung fu action and great character development with good acting. However, it still carries some technical burdens, has some writing issues, and the story while interesting wasn't as well developed as say Lost Galaxy).\\
10.Series/PowerRangersWildForce (underrated with excellent team ups and complex villains, but with a very iffy story).\\
11.Series/PowerRangersLightspeedRescue (decent with good characters, zords and a different feel, but no good villains).\\
12.Series/PowerRangersMysticForce (Like Ninja Storm, good when great, bad when bad, with less likable rangers then annoying ones, a sub-par theme song and too much focus on the world-building. Even so, Linkara gave it an overall recommendation).\\
13.Series/PowerRangersNinjaStorm (A "flawed" series that is great when good, awful when bad, and has only one good villain out of a much larger stand alone evil group).\\
14.Series/PowerRangersSamurai (A bad season filled with cultural mistranslations, bad acting, parental and ChildSoldier issues with the main rangers, a mentor InNameOnly, unsatisfying subplot conclusions, and a main villain that's even less intimidating than Lothor. However, it still has good moments such as the opening music, the HD resolution, the teamup, and the return of Bulk).\\
15.Series/PowerRangersTurbo (Until Operation Overdrive, this was, in his opinion, the worst season ever with a destruction of the old order in a horrible way with a stupid archenemy and no easily identifiable theme, but it did still have great music, fights, an epic ending, and even some ambitious episodes)\\
16.Series/PowerRangersMegaForce (Suffering MASSIVE HypeBacklash from being the 20th anniversary season, Megaforce as seen by Linkara isn't so much bad as it's lazy. With bad acting, only 1 character arc, too many continuity issues to count, poor writing, anticlimaxes, and overall, just a bad experience. Despite this though, his least favorite is still...)\\
17.Series/PowerRangersOperationOverdrive (Bad music, bad pacing, mixed acting, kallishsplosion addled fights, a horrible teamup, and bad characters, though with some redeemable qualities such as Spencer, the [=iMack reveal=] and some nice back story for the 6th ranger).

* I would switch Zeo and Wild Force due to him speaking generally positive of Wild Force at the end and with no noted positivity or negativity towards Zeo. Although I could be biased as a Wild Force Fan.
** You are a biased Wild Force fan, even if he said it wasn't AS bad as fans say he still criticized it a lot. He was much less critical of Zeo.
* Zeo and Wild Force may rank higher than Galaxy due to Zeo's themes of triumph and having the added bonus of continuing the story from the previous season with returning characters whereas Galaxy had such troubled production, the first quarter of the season was noted as being slow and many of its characters received little to no development, especially Maya and Damon.
* Mystic Force will probably be No. 10.
* Seems like Turbo should rank above Samurai - while he isn't fond of Turbo, he specifically stated in his Operation Overdrive review that there is a lot of stuff he liked about it, while the best thing he's said about Samurai is that it's watchable. Also, he's stated that while he does find Time Force to be very good, it was a bit overhyped in his opinion, so it should be a little lower.




[[WMG: Megaforce will be the final History of Power Rangers video.]]
With how the Power Rangers seasons are nowadays, I don't think Linkara will bother waiting two whole years just so he could review one entire series' storyline.
* Jossed He has [[http://atopthefourthwall.com/october-2015-trailer-and-state-of-the-wall/ mentioned]] that he already plans on doing videos for every series, even though they will be far apart since the seasons will be spaced out. In fact he even mentions being open to doing more "History" style videos via his Patreon for copycat series.

[[WMG: Some of the patreon reviews will be for Super Sentai seasons]]
Not all of them, but specifically the ones that either accomplished their ideas better than Power Rangers did (Goseiger, Gokaiger), were completely different (Gingaman, Go-onger), or skipped (Dairanger, Go-Busters, or anything before Zyuranger).
* Well, part of this happened -- he reviewed the first five episodes of ''Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger'' as a Patreon-sponsored episode.

*** He'll comment that in general, most of the villains's plans are pretty good. He'll especially like how Sledge used the rangers desperation at the beginning of the show to almost find their base in only the 3rd episode.

** He'll mentions that many of the monsters get an EarlyBirdCameo due to how the prison is set up.

Added DiffLines:

*** He might also wonder if there was some sort of behind the scenes stuff that got in the way, particularly since Judd Lynn seemed to be supervising all the episodes, so he'll wonder if he was forced to take his hands off that resulted in quality issues.

** When he mentions the first example, he'll note that the rumors about what the ''Power Rangers Samurai'' counterpart of Decade were that he would either be Dex Stuart himself (who would have become the king of Edenoi after Count Dregon was defeated, and the Masked Rider suit changed to reflect his position as Royalty), or Dex's son (who would have inherited the powers from his father, and the rider suit would have also transformed into new powers).

** He'll also note that if the company responsible for ''Dragon Knight'' had adapted any series made after ''Series/KamenRiderKiva'', they could have worked with Saban to adapt the crossovers between Super Sentai and Kamen Rider[[note]]with the exception of ''Series/KamenRiderDouble'', which did not crossover with ''Series/TensouSentaiGoseiger''[[/note]], and note that ''Power Rangers'' and ''Masked Rider'' crossed over first. He'll also wonder how they would have handled the crossovers between ''Gobusters'' and ''Fourze'' or ''[=ToQger=]'' and ''Gaim'' if ''Fourze'' or ''Gaim'' had been adapted, since the Sentai series in those crossovers were skipped by Saban.

** Ultimately he'll say that ''Dino Charge'' and ''Dino Super Charge'' should be taken as two separate shows, due to the noticeable dive in quality in the second half of the series.
