** The season not only constantly uses footage of Sentai-only teams, but the teams are never given an explanation for where those powers come from. They also name the teams inconsistently when morphing into them in different episodes. This despite the fact in scenes where the Rangers each morph into a member of a different team, if one of them was in a Sentai-only costume originally it was often digitally edited to be a Ranger from an English season.

He also points out that if they ''had'' to keep them in, the franchise provided plenty of opportunities to turn it into WorldBuilding they could have easily used but didn't.

* PropRecycling:
** Notes that the Mut-Orgs from "Reinforcements From The Future" were actually from old costumes, even noting by that point they were reusing old costumes by that point.
** Linkara does not hide the fact that the Machine Empire Gen reals from "Forever Red" used the suits from ''Series/BigBadBeetleborgs'', even reffereing to them as the Beetleborgs for that episode.

* GrowingTheBeard [[invoked]]: Discussed. He states that since the days when the original ''MMPR'' was on the air, children's television has become a lot more sophisticated and ambitious, tackling more mature themes, creating more complex characters, and striving to create legitimately emotional and heartwarming moments. This includes ''Power Rangers'' itself, which since then has had more substantial stories and characters compared to the often bland and goofy writing from ''MMPR''. He cites this as one of the big problems with both Megaforce seasons, which mostly focus on spectacle and having as many action scenes as possible in lieu of actual depth or compelling storytelling, meaning it can't compete with shows like WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse or WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender which have a lot more to offer.

** In Space and Lost Galaxy are both Space Opera's and both deal with the GreyAndGrayMorality of villainy. In Space focuses on what makes someone evil, while Lost Galaxy focuses more about the NobleDemon side of evil and chivalry.

** For as much as he hated Operation Overdrive, Linkara does admit that the story-arc with Mack's RoboticReveal brought up some identity crisis in the final act.



** Samurai was about family responsibility, although he points out it's mostly shows how negatively some of the rangers are affected by it.

** In the Season 3 remastered review, Linakra notes that in ''Kakuranger'', the rangers started with the Shogun Zords firsy and then had the Ninja Zords later on while in ''Mighty Morphin Power Rangers'', it was the other way around. Linkara doesn't mind it however, even stating that starting with the more humanoid Shogun Zords would have been a big departure from a show that had animal based Zords by that point.
** That isn't to say that it came without problems however. In the beginning of Season 2, they still had ''Zyu2'' footage to use, so the earlier Thunderzord battles had obvious cuts into the footage, and the monster costumes from later seasons were limited to said Zord footage, or stand alone footage from the Sentai (that's if they couldn't get the costumes overseas).

** At the end of the review, Linkara states that ''Wild Force'' was supposed to be the final season as Disney bought the rights to Power Rangers, and intended to end the show with the previous season played as reruns with a lot of other Saban based projects Disney bought. As we know however, the production crew convinced Disney to keep the series running if they moved production to New Zealand.

*** 2) During Zeo, Rocky gave Jason back the damaged Tyrannosaurus Power Coin when Jason came back as the Gold Ranger. Jason would then find a way to repair the coin (as hinted back from ''In Space'' when Adam used the damaged Mastadon Power Coin).
*** 3) The official confirmation by Amit Bhuamik is that Jason got a new Power Coin from one of Lord Zedd's Dark Rangers that appeared in the comic book series. Linkara does admit though that may not be plausable given the circumstance of comic continuity to the show.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation[[invoked]]: Theorizes that Doctor Hartford, due to his familiarity with Zord and Morphing technology, as well as his personal wealth, may have helped with the various ranger groups in ''Lightspeed Rescue'' and ''SPD''.

** He actually criticizes her about this later on, near the end, when she ''does'' fight back when a kidnapping attempt is made on her, claiming that she's not weak. He does this since, well, why would she suddenly be competent ''now'' when all those other times would have been really useful for her to not be kidnapped?

** Linkara also shares a distaste for the Team's mentor, Sensei Kanoi Watanabe. In particular, he questions the generic "wise sayings" that Kanoi gives out as advice. He also remains confused as to how Kanoi was turned into a hamster in the first place (or how one of Lothor's blasts changed him back to human, for that matter).

* SpotlightStealingSquad: Notes that the side characters have more focus than the rangers, aside from Nick. He goes further to say that the ultimate conflict between good and evil here is nearly superfluous to the Rangers themselves, and just feels like "All the people who fought the last war trying to get together to finish what they started."

** He also sometimes goes into details about certain rangers that he likes over the rest of the team, so far having done Katie in ''Time Force'', Cam in ''Ninja Storm'', Chip in ''Mystic Force'', RJ in ''Jungle Fury'', Antonio in ''Samurai'', Gia in ''Megaforce'', and singling out Zach as his favorite of the original ''Mighty Morphin'' in his Remaster of Season 1.

* AdaptedOut: Discusses how fans were fans seem disappointed that in Season 2 the Rangers continue using the suits of ''Zyuranger'' as opposed to the ''Series/GoseiSentaiDairanger'' suits. For the record, Linkara says he's personally not a fan of the ''Dairanger'' suits aesthetically, but also thinks with Season 2 overhauling the Zords and the main villain, it was a good call by the show to ''not'' change the suits as well, as too much change to the status quo could have alienated existing viewers.
