** Explicitly averted in his ''Series/PowerRangersOperationOverdrive'' review, where he not only goes out of his way to note when the season (which he considers the weakest in the franchise) does something right, but retroactively admits that he feels he was too hard on ''Series/PowerRangersTurbo''. Later, he does the same for ''Series/PowerRangersSamurai'', despite having an even lower opinion of it.

* MorePopularSpinoff: For some, HOPR is in a lot more demand than Linkara's main video project, ''Atop the Fourth Wall''. Even so, Linkara has said ATFW almost always takes priority over HOPR (helped by the fact he can only make HOPR episodes when new seasons have been released with their official [=DVDs=]).

* DearNegativeReader: In the ''[=RPM=]'' examination he quotes a critic/troll on the forums who mocks him for spending so much time looking for deeper meaning in a lighthearted kids show, and he points out the truly dark and deep elements this season has while still being a fun, overall lighthearted kids show.

** Other fans claim HOPR really came into its own at Lost Galaxy, as Linkara's NostalgiaFilter was finally officially off the table, and with the lack of Bulk and Skull, Linkara instead focused more time to individual Ranger analysis, which many fans thought was sorely lacking in his previous reviews.

* DramaticIrony: Example of this applying to him instead of the show during his review on ''Mystic Force'', where he comments that zord combination sequences look like "somebody took the sentai footage and hit the fast forward button." Anybody that watched Magiranger would know that is more or less the case.

*** Speaking of his review for ''In Space'', he notes that the promotional materials Saban had been given for the sentai showed a space-themed series...but the sentai they '''ACTUALLY''' got, ''Series/DenjiSentaiMegaranger'', was a video game and device themed sentai. If Saban had just waited 20 years, they would have gotten [[Series/UchuuSentaiKyuranger a Sentai]] that WAS actually space themed.
** He says a couple of the Rangers suits from ''Jungle Fury'' look too much like track suits, apparently unaware that they actually were designed by a sports company in [[Series/JuukenSentaiGekiranger the original sentai]].

** He also reviewed the first 5 episodes of ''Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger'' from a Patreon request, same as Zyuranger, which allowed him to gain some insights on the differences and similarities between it and Super Megaforce and see why people like it as well as how it's far superior to Super Megaforce, as well that Super Megaforce copied Gokaiger wholesale for a lot of its episodes without very much reason or meaning behind the adapted episodes.
* ValuesDissonance: One of his biggest problems with ''Series/PowerRangersSamurai'' is the lack of care in adapting the Sentai show's heavy focus on uniquely Japanese cultural values, such as PillarsOfMoralCharacter and familial honor being put on children to drive them to inherit the family business, so to speak, for a more global perspective. It comes to a head during his discussion of Antonio's post-introductory episode, with him regarding Antonio as the most heroic of the Rangers, since he willingly chose to become a super hero of his own free will despite the risks and worked his ass off to do it, while the script is steeped in more-traditionally-Japanese notions of obligation and deference.

** In the wrapup for RPM he makes a meta joke about Ziggy and Dr K's actors getting married. They broke up in early 2016.

** Any time he complains about the Megaforce rangers getting too many Zords is this if you've seen ''Goseiger'' and know that there were Zords that weren't adapted - said zords are the Exotic Brothers, Mystic Brothers, and Datas Hyper[[note]]Exotic Brothers was only used once, and Datas Hyper wasn't used, since Tensou looks different from Datas; although it's never been revealed why Mystic Brothers wasn't used[[/note]].

* HarsherInHindsight: When he got to Billy leaving ''Zeo'', he said he hasn't been able to find much information on why it happened, but he's heard it was because David Yost was hard to work with. Shortly afterwards, Yost finally did reveal why he left: he was constantly subjected to shocking verbal abuse over his homosexuality. In the next video to go up, Lewis confirmed that he'd seen the interview and will add it into the ''Zeo'' review in the future (which is now likely to be whenever he re-edits or re-records it for YouTube).

* CanonFodder: While Lewis doesn't directly engage in this for the show overall due to it being a serious review show, he does do this for Power Rangers as a whole, with speculations about the existence of Scorpius's forces if Zordon's energy wave was suppose to "destroy all evil", the physics and length of a year for the Power Rangers universe, why Aliens came to be accepted on earth so easily in less than 20 years, where [[PowerRangersJungleFury RJ got the morpher technology from]], and other matters that crop up thanks to having a shared universe.
