/analysis guessing platform for future episodes
Guesses for existing videos
- Something regarding Bridge's over-analysis.
- "No one gets inside our circle!"
- The "you'd be psyched to be the Pink Ranger" bit, which he mentioned in the commentary for his Power Rangers Zeo comic review.
- I think in the teaser he'll show that scene from RIC where the Monster of the Week presents Grumm slime and Linkara voices in a pitch that it'll make his bones sheen.
- MEGAZORDS ON MOTORCYCLES!
- Sadly Jossed, though he did use the "you'd be psyched to be the Pink Ranger" thing as The Stinger.
- Mystic Force
- Linkara getting in on the whole "Who's Madison?" trend.
- Conversely, Madison will get the largest amount of character analysis (behind Nick).
- Or giving everyone but Nick one sentence, and after covering Nick, who has ten paragraphs, does a long and lenghty rant about how unbalanced this is and how it makes for a bad season.
- None of the above- Nick had a longer character study, but Linkara was mainly noting that Nick was mostly useless and tended to give up the most. The "Who's Madison?" meme didn't come up at all.
- Commenting that Nick looks nothing like either of his parents and offhandedly saying that he looks more like Daggeron before realizing the Unfortunate Implications and quickly changing the subject.
- He'll note that the magic creatures for the zords seem to be In Name Only, as they're all pretty humanoid.
- In regards to some of the more implausible aspects of the Mystic Force powers, he'll respond by saying it's magic, you don't have to explain it.
- There has to be a mention of the chessboard cockpits! Even if it's just a Flat "What.".
- Or he loves it.
- Nothing about the cockpit outside of wondering why there was one when the Rangers otherwise became their Zords.
- He'll groan when it's revealed that, on top of Mystic Force not getting a team-up episode with SPD, the only character from the latter series to even make an appearance is Piggy, his least-favorite character from SPD.
- While its inclusion in the review is yet to be determined, he did end up tweeting about this moment as he was watching it. He was downright gobsmacked by Piggy's random cameo, his reaction being closer to a Big "WHAT?!" than a groan.
- He was more calm about it in the review, admitting that Piggy's cameo was alright as it helped a character develop.
- While he's not the kind of person to make gay jokes, I could see him at least pointing out the odd look of agreement Vida gives to the "Leelee's mom is hot" line.
- He didn't comment on it, but he did show the clip in full.
- Operation Overdrive
- The Strange Minds Think Alike scene from "Once a Ranger".
- The scene where Mac shows up to a fight wearing various 'good luck' items from his team mates over his suit and getting run over by a boulder out of nowhere.
- "Will! Do not steal anything on your way out." from the College Humor sketch will be The Stinger.
- Maybe a minor comment about that unfortunate case of Life Imitates Art.
- He doesn't make a minor comment: he fully explains about the banner-stealing and says Benta can go to hell for it.
- He'll make at least one reference to the Miser Brothers.
- He'll complain about the villain pile-up.
- He'll either have a mild dislike of the theme song, or rip it apart.
- He's commented in a few places about hating the theme song.
- He doesn't just hate the theme song, he absolutely DESPISES it...
- Aside from "Once a Ranger" and maybe Mack's storyline, he'll completely hate this season.
- This is all but confirmed at the end of his Mystic Force review, when he remarks that Operation Overdrive is probably the worst that Power Rangers has to offer- even worse then Turbo, Linkara's personal least favorite season.
- But how can he say that when he's only seen one episode? Is he basing his opinion on the fact that several fans don't like the season?
- I believe that he once said that before making the videos, he also makes sure to watch through the *next* season, so he knows what to look out for once he starts analyzing that one.
- This only used to be the case- he stopped doing it because it was just slowing things down.
- He hated Once a Ranger and outright called it the worst team-up (he even says it barely qualifies as one), but he did praise Mack's storyline for its very well-done Foreshadowing and the good acting and writing involved.
- I get the feeling that he might try to marathon this season, to get it over with as soon as he can, making this episode come out sooner.
- He'll rant about Mack being another case of the Spotlight-Stealing Squad and being a God-Mode Sue given how easily he beat Flurious when he got the Corona and the jewels after the rangers spent the whole series trying keep the villains from getting them.
- While he doesn't rant, he does complain about how easily Flurious is defeated and how Mack gets more-or-less all the character development.
- Not to mention the scene in Once A Ranger where he beats a monster unmorphed... You all know the one...
- He'll express annoyance with Flurious being the Final Boss. In past he's ranted about ineffective villains, and of the 4 sets of villains in Overdrive, Flurious was the least active and effective, and only got his hands on one of the jewels because Norg stole them.
- Jossed, he praises Flurious for playing the waiting game, since doing so left him the last man standing.
- Commenting on how it's a bit disturbing/creepy that Andrew Hartford built himself an adult aged son.
- He probably won't say anything about it, but he probably will imply that he thinks it's odd, because most fans don't really need the concept to be explained.
- He will dislike Once A Ranger for being a poor and weird team up. He will also dislike the music and morphing sequence they use for Adam.
- He disliked OAR for many reasons but he didn't dislike the music they used for Adam, he just lamented that they couldn't use the original.
- In a massive twist of faith (Since Linkara hasn't seen anything from Overdrive outside of the team-up), he'll love this season.
- Judging by his tweets from the few episodes he's watched so far, Jossed
- Oh so very Jossed
- Linkara will probably either hum "When You Wish Upon a Star" or make a Pinocchio joke when Mack is made into a human at the very end.
- Jossed, although he said that 'Mack is a real boy now'.
- Saying that Spencer seemed like the mentor figure to the Rangers while Andrew Hartford was more like a financial backer.
- Not in as many words, but he does say that Hartford was shady and sneaky, while Spencer was the better mentor figure.
- He will start the episode with an absolutely epic rant aimed at the fans for dissing him and essentially demanding he make more episodes, reminding them of what his rules were at the start of the series.
- Jossed, he instead rants about how it is merely his opinion on how much he hates the series. No mention of the fans whatsoever.
- The Stinger will be a quote from Alpha or Sentinal Knight in Once A Ranger; or even better from Thor...
- Jossed, it was a Spencer clip.
- Jungle Fury
- I think that the theme of the season will be about putting our faith in others which after giving it thought happened a lot in the series.
- Either that, or about escalation and hope.
- He will speculate about who this "guy who knew a guy who had an uncle" who gave RJ the morphers is.
- One of RJ's early training sessions.
- Confirmed, he does go into the whole three-legged stool lesson RJ gives to Theo.
- He'll go into some detail over how Casey is treated like a rookie much harsher than other rookies like Wes and Cole, and probably incorporate that heavily in the character section.
- Semi-confirmed. While he doesn't go into detail over how harsh Casey was treated, he does discuss how justified Casey's situation and overall character arc is in this season.
- He'll mention the Eel monster as a teaser moment, on him "being a freak" and Linkara says, "No comment." as part of the monster being Getting Crap Past the Radar.
- In light of some of the Arbitrary Skepticism displayed in previous seasons, the scene where the rangers first get their morphers will win a lot of points with him. Reason being that, when RJ asks the team if they've heard of the Power Rangers, Casey immediately responds with "Yeah, who hasn't?".
- Confirmed. And he snarks about the teams who haven't heard of them even though their presence on Earth had been well established previous seasons.
- Given his track record with the handheld morphers, he probably won't like the Solar Morphers.
- Debatable. He has voiced a preference for morphers that are unique, and he has said that he has grown tired of both wrist-strap and cell-phone morphers, so he might enjoy them based on novelty factor, if nothing else.
- He might mention that the morphers in the original sentai were the Battle Claws and voice his thoughts on if that. I know he doesn't bring up the Sentai often, but this would seem like one of the times for him too.
- Jossed with the whole Won't like the Solar Morphers bit. Linkara has said that he doesn't mind the Solar Morphers a whole lot. He finds them a bit goofy, but he does praise the Disney-era Power Ranger seasons for trying new things out, like the morpher types.
- With how bad Overdrive's theme song was, he will enjoy this one.
- Alternatively, he'll hate the theme song for being an Expository Theme Tune.
- Or he'll say that it's a breath of fresh air after the horrible hip hop and rap, but not have the same energy of themes like Wild Force or SPD.
- So far, he's said that it's much more enjoyable after hearing Overdrive's but didn't elaborate on how good it is in comparison to other seasons.
- He'll at first criticize the initial three suits for having hardly any white in their designs, and then criticize the Super Mode for having too much white.
- He might also complain about how they (the initial three suits) look rather cheap compared to most ranger suits.
- Or he'll think they are unique and praise that.
- Jossed with the whole Criticizing the initial three suits and their Super Mode bit. Linkara states that he rather likes the suits, but finds it weird that the initial ones have White around the collar when the main colors are the ranger-color and black and that the Super Mode suits have Black around the collar, when the primary second color was white.
- He also said that, while he is kind of pleased that we have the first Purple Ranger in the series, he finds the Purple Ranger's suit to look a little too too-many-parts-at-once and almost looks like a track suit.
- Noticing the naming scheme of the Pai Zhua masters and wondering why RJ is the odd one out.
- Or he might theorize a justification for RJ's name, for example it kind of sounds like a wolf growling.
- Commenting on Theo gaining about a foot in height whenever he morphs and, to the people who were annoyed about it, pointing out that something like that is nothing new.
- He'll talk about this season being like the last 2 seasons in terms of villain structure, but done differently, what with a Big Bad who starts off weaker than many, and having his growing strength being the framework of their actions.
- On the same note, he'll call it a combination of Ninja Storm, Mystic Force and Wild Force. Also, like Wild Force, he'll call this a severely underrated season that was overlooked just because it was between a really bad series and a really good one.
- Semi-Confirmed. He does say that this season is really underrated and gives it praise.
- He'll comment that for the first time in a long time, the supporting cast for the rangers is reduced to being either mentors, or Fran. For that matter, he'll talk about Fran as what Cassidy and Devin should have been. Growing in character, learning the rangers's identities, and even providing support in a limited fashion.
- Confirmed, Linkara said they could've (and actually should've) done this with Fran.
- He'll grumble about how after all the wonder of New Tech City in the Future, the mystic realms and traveling the world, being stuck at a pizza parlor with the headquarters upstairs in a city with only the hills around them will feel like a big step down.
- He'll wonder if the Jungle Fury rangers are younger than other rangers due to their rather childish fears from being taught by Masters Rilla, Lope and Gwen.
- Jossed. Though he does comment on how ridiculous their fears are.
- In talking about the villains, he'll have trouble distinguishing between Jarrod and Dai Shi due to the difficulties of the demonic possession and the confusing ways that people like Carnosaur tried to train him.
- He does bring up the Jarrod/Dai Shi distinction during his character analysis, saying that it wasn't always clear how much of what was seen was purely Dai Shi and how much was a mixture of Dai Shi and Jarrod.
- He'll mention this is the first time a traitorous villain actually held onto power for a while, and talk about how this played well into Camilla's arc for her Undying Loyalty.
- He'll call this a hybrid season between the Kalish era and other seasons, with the same multiple villains, explosions and the like, but also a focus on martial arts and stronger characterizations than the last couple seasons.
- Confirmed in a way. He notes that Jungle Fury does share several elements with Operation Overdrive (serial episodes, multiple villain factions, etc.), but further notes that Jungle Fury used them much more effectively.
- He will despise Flit the second he shows up.
- More to the point, he'll call him the next Jenji, only more annoying since he has to talk over the megazord battles. Even with his bit on being a prisoner of Camile won't win him enough points to count him as bearable, but he will mention that it does make him more sympathetic than Jenji since it wasn't his fault he got stuck as a fly.
- Jossed. He just says he's flat aside from it all. Although, he does mention that it was annoying to have flit talk over the fights.
- He'll get annoyed with the constant use of new power levels among the villains, often with no foreshadowing or mention before the reveal.
- Saying that this season is pretty decent, especially coming off of Overdrive, but had the bad luck of happening at the time where Disney just stopped caring about the show and ended up being overshadowed by the following season.
- In the final episode he'll go for the joke on how "Dai Shi reveals his ultimate form...King..Ghidorah. Huh. Well, considering that the monsters Power Rangers fight all inevitably turn into Kaiju, I suppose the beast leader would be something like this, though perhaps it would make more sense if he turned out to be Godzilla instead."
- Jossed, though he does make a King Ghidorah reference with him.
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 Turbo episode of The Nostalgia Critic
A list of Lewis's favorite Power Rangers Series.
Exactly What It Says on the Tin
. 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. -Eric W
1.Power Rangers in Space
(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.Power Rangers Dino Thunder
(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.)
3.Power Rangers Time Force
(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.Power Rangers Zeo
(uncertain about this, but overall didn't seem to leave as much of an impression on him compared to many other seasons)
6.Power Rangers S.P.D.
(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)
7.Power Rangers Lost Galaxy
(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.Power Rangers Jungle Fury
(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)
11.Power Rangers Mystic Force
(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)
12.Power Rangers Ninja Storm
(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)
13.Power Rangers Turbo
(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)
14.Power Rangers Operation Overdrive
(Has already said in his Mystic Force review that this is "The worst Power Rangers has to offer." He followed this up on Rangerboard by saying he had "words" for it)
- 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.
He'll like one of the Kalish-era series much more than the fan base does.
- Probably Jungle Fury, since it does have some parallels to Power Rangers Wild Force (his current choice for most underrated season), has one of the better theme songs of the Kalish-era, and there are fans who regard this series as finally starting to make a comeback.
- All good points. Plus it has the first Violet Ranger, and partially deconstructs the Rookie Red Ranger trope with Casey and his insecurities about being the leader yet also the least experienced Ranger. Plus there's Fran.
- Confirmed, he liked SPD, though granted that was already by far the least-hated and most-liked Kalish season.
- He gave Mystic Force a recommendation, but noted there was a lot of flaws. In particular, he liked the Stranger Within and Dark Wish arc.
He'll come up with his own "Once a Ranger" team, and it won't be the same as the one that was used.
- We'll have a better idea of who he'd replace when we get there.
- Of course, we can speculate... Its likely that Carter is going to replace Bridge as the team's Red, and either Jen or Katie taking a Girl spot of the team. T.J. might be put in as the Blue Ranger, Adam kept as the Black Ranger, and possibly Karone as the pink (for weirdness factor) or Kat/Tanya (replace with whether he picks Katie or Jen respectively). Or for comedy reasons, Green Ranger Tommy, White Ranger Tommy, Zeo Ranger 5, Red Turbo Tommy, and Dino Thunder Tommy.
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.
- 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.
He won't like RPM
- Citing the Darker and Edgier plot, and the season's Lampshade Hanging on some of the clichés that the show uses.
- But, on the other hand, he doesn't exactly have a problem with Darker and Edgier as two of his favorite seasons are In Space and Time Force which are certainly darker than the average season. What's important to him is that the story makes sense, moves logically at a good pace, and has good characters. As for the Lampshade Hanging, that might be something he's not as fond of, since that kind of humor is kinda similar to Ninja Storm which he didn't like as much. Regardless, I expect him in talking about Power Rangers RPM to bring up Power Rangers Turbo and compare them on whether or not they're any different in adding silly material to a serious story.
- Whether he ultimately approves of it or not, he's almost certain to get some Hype Backlash like he did with Time Force.
- And, similarly, even if he likes it, he'll most likely point out that having a 'darker story' has nothing to do with whether it's good or not, seeing as that's something that comes up on AT 4 W all the time. While he may ultimately like it for its strong character development, legitimately funny jokes, interesting plot, explaining Ranger technology and for having its own identity, expect him to qualify his praise with a statement along the lines of, "And, no, it's not because it's 'dark'. Making it 'dark' does not make a story better. That's not how storytelling works."
- Alternatively, he'll love the Darker and Edgier stuff, but criticise the humour. As much as he claims that Power Rangers is "supposed to be cheesy", he tends to be quite critical of the more comedic aspects of the series, such as Turbo and Ninja Storm.
- He could be mixed on the different types of humor though. For example, he may like meta humor that pokes fun at the show, but not any of the other humorous bits like Ziggy's schtick.
- It should probably be noted that he DOES like self referential humor, as he did say in one of his MMPR videos that he loves those bits and then showed the "What is it this time, a monster that blows itself up?" bit from Zedd. It seems likely he didn't like the humor in Turbo because it was a 100% mood whiplash in the earlier parts of the season, and didn't like it in Ninja Storm due to his dislike of Lothar (who made a good chunk of the lampshades) as a villain.
- When has Linkara's overall opinion (not individual things like liking Carter which he made a thing) strayed that FAR from the fan consensus? He hated Turbo but commented it got better and (retroactively said) it had a great finale, Turbo isn't a popular season but even fans who hated it said it got better in the second half way before Linkara.. He loves In Space, Time Force, and Dino Thunder all popular seasons. He said Lost Galaxy started out slow but got better which is the general consensus. His "So Okay, It's Average" feelings toward Lightspeed, Ninja Storm, and Mystic Force which is pretty much how the fandom feels about it. He loathed Operation Overdrive, which most of the fandom already did. He really likes SPD and SPD was a well liked season by a good ton of the fandom. Perhaps his most unpopular opinion on a season overall was liking Wild Force but he still noted its problems and really the fandom was warming up to it before he got to it because Overdrive and Samurai happened. At most RPM will get some Hype Backlash from him ala Time Force (how can he not when most of the fandom touts RPM as the greatest thing since sliced bread?) but he's still really like it.
He'll love RPM
- He loooves Power Rangers taking itself seriously so he will probably dub RPM one of the best Power Ranger seasons
He's been saving up an epic rant for Operation Overdrive
- He keeps alluding to the infamous parts of "Once A Ranger" where the Rangers give up their powers, pretty much from the earliest episodes of HOPR saying that "I'll get into this again in a later episode" or that something similar will be relevant in a later season, which makes me think Linkara will compare the scenes from "Once A Ranger" where all the Operation Overdrive Rangers give up on their quest and no longer have any intention of helping out in any way at all with the scene from Mighty Morphin Season 3 with Ninjor, Lightspeed Rescue's Cyborg Ranger episode, Billy in Zeo and other examples of previous Rangers expressing every intention to keep doing the right thing and keep helping out even if they no longer have Ranger powers and criticise this episode for making the Operation Overdrive Rangers look at best like they're inferior to the other Rangers who showed up and at worst like they're just in it for the glory. He'll probably also assess that this kind of behaviour and how it influences fan perception of later Rangers is one reason why these episodes and seasons aren't as beloved as the more idealistic earlier seasons. He'll also comment on the EXPLOSIONS and the over-the-top civilian powers all the later Rangers have.
- Semi-confirmed in Mystic Force and with follow-up on Rangerboard- Linkara hasn't seen much yet outside of Once A Ranger and the opening, but he's already made it clear that he hates the theme song and the costumes, and he has "Words," for Overdrive.
- When did he say he hated the suits? Sorry, but this troper cannot see how in the name of hell anybody could hate those suits.
- It was during a Super Sentai/Power Rangers podcast where they were discussing all the suits from the beginning until now. He commented that for the main team, the combination of the chrome, the white to color ratio, and the large chest symbol just rubbed him the wrong way and for their sixth ranger, said that suit had too much going on with having four colors and having siren lights as shoulderpads seemingly slapped onto it.
- But does that necessarily mean he hated them?
- He outright stated that he did during that podcast when they got to the Overdrive suits.
- Confirmed. Oh so beautifully confirmed.
He'll include Megaforce before he even gets to Mystic Force.
- Let's face it: he's been putting out videos less and less frequently since it began, and the gap between Dino Thunder and SPD was over 9 months. It's been about 8 months since the latter, and Megaforce airs around February or January of next year. Which means that, at the rate he's going, he'll release the review for the next season then at the earliest.
- This is most likely the case since Megaforce is set to air February 2nd and Linkara has commented that he hasn't been able to get further than the first few episodes due to his schedule.
- In January 2013 he put up a post stating that he would attempt to review all the series from Mystic Force through Super Samurai by the end of the year.
- Confirmed. As of his Mystic Force review, Megaforce footage appears in the opening theme. (Though the original poster probably meant that there would be a video covering Megaforce before the Mystic Force video, which proved not to be the case.)
- As an add-on, maybe including bits of Super Megaforce in whenever he gets to Overdrive.
Samurai will get 2 videos like early seasons did
It did have two seperate seasons
- Doubtful, if only because it's one continuous story with the exact same characters stretched out over two years, rather than being two separate stories working into or playing off each other.
- Linkara mentioned on Rangerboard that Samurai and Super Samurai would be separate videos, similar to how MMPR was three parts. However, since the seasons are half the length of an older season, they likely won't take as long to make, and he might just put them up on the same day as if they were two parts of one review.
- Recently he's mentioned that he'd most likely combine the two seasons since there just isn't enough story/material to have them be separate but might have more than one video if it ends up running long.
Linkara's favorite ranger from each season
Sometimes it's really obvious who his favorite ranger is and other times it's alot more difficult to tell.
Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers
-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.
Power Rangers Zeo
-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.
Power Rangers Turbo
-Cassie. He singles her out the most and is the only one of the four replacements he takes time to analyze.
Power Rangers in Space
-Andros. He likes character development and Andros had plenty. However, this is his favorite season so he probably loves everyone.
Power Rangers Lost Galaxy
-Kinda vague. Maybe Leo who became a true red leader, overcame his impulsiveness and destroyed Trakeena (the first time).
Power Rangers Wild Force
-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.
Power Rangers Ninja Storm
-Also a little vague. He might like Cam just like everyone else. He may also be partial to Dustin, or to Shane.
Power Rangers Dino Thunder
-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)
Power Rangers S.P.D.
-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).
Interesting, If I were to speculate for future seasons
Power Rangers Operation Overdrive
- well there won't be a favorite here probably just a ranger he hates the least (I guess that would be Mack)
- Lewis seems to like Rose the most out of the rangers, judging from a few of his tweets.
Power Rangers Jungle Fury
- Probably RJ since he is a pretty good mentor for the most part (despite using Zordon's methods of endangering the city to get a point across from time to time), and additionally the character is just so entertaining.
- Either that or Casey for his evolution from a rookie to the hero.
Power Rangers RPM
- Maybe Ziggy, in the past Linkara seems to like underdogs (part of why he likes Bulk and Skull so much), and Ziggy is basically the definition of Underdog (and what would have happened if Bulk or Skull ever became rangers), he's surrounded by highly competent rangers while he became a ranger by accident and lacks any real form of training, however he still tries his best and actually came up with plans that saved the day on a few occasions, plus he also crossed the entire Mafia (Before he became a ranger) to get medical supplies to an orphanage, which i think will go over well with Linkara as he has stated "its one thing to be brave when you've got power, good looks and the uncanny ability to do 15 things at once and be loved by all, but its an entirely different matter to be the underdog not the smartest or best in shape and STILL stand up to evil."
- Alternatively, he may go for Flynn instead for similar reasons. Not so much for being an underdog, but because he has a strong heroic streak, connected to his love of superhero comics. Linkara might be drawn to him like he was drawn to Chip in Power Rangers Mystic Force.
- Doctor K may get an honorable mention if he likes her training methods or her character development.
Linkara's least favorite ranger from each season
Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers
- No one in particular but he does criticize Tommy for 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.
Power Rangers Turbo
- Justin. He admits that he doesn't really hate Justin as a character, just the concept surrounding him.
- He called Justin the only competent character in Turbo. Doesn't sound like hates him.
Power Rangers in Space
- 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.
Power Rangers Wild Force
- Cole. Like every other fan, he really doesn't care for Cole's acting.
- He didn't seem to fond of Merrick though (calling him the lamest sixth ranger yet), and he did say he liked bits of Cole's character arc.
Power Rangers Ninja Storm
- 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).
- Hunter at least had a bit more abrasiveness at first though. So his least favorite is probably Blake for being the blandest of the team.
Power Rangers Dino Thunder
- 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.
Power Rangers Mystic Force
- He doesn't seem to like Vida or her music and leaves out some notable stuff on her character(her hatred for pink, being the first masculine Pink Ranger). Also, he isn't very partial to Nick.
- Most likely it would be Nick. Nick 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. Vida may be bland to him, but Nick is a weak willed jerk, and Linkara hates that.
Power Rangers Operation Overdrive
- Dax. He's Stupid and annoying and doesn't grow out of this. He even says so.
- No pretty sure it's Will
- That one's jossed, Lewis has no problems with Will the character. His actor, on the other hand, well he deserves every lambasting Lewis lashed out at him. And even then, he didn't deliver the lambasting as rageful as he's cursing Dax's existence... (Guess that's just because he knows this is nothing to joke about)
Power Rangers Jungle Fury
- 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.
And for future seasons:
Power Rangers RPM
- Summer for her tendency to be too perfect at everything making her come off as a bit Mary Sue-ish to him or Gem and Gemma for their behavior and how it endangered the rest of the team and the city on several occasions.
Power Rangers Megaforce
- Troy for various reasons and commenting that there was a lot of potential for him, his prophetic dreams for example.
Similar to Wild Force, he'll like Samurai but see it's problems
- If memory serves, while Samurai was airing he had commented somewhere he was enjoying it. He'll probably say his beef with it like the show telling traits about the Rangers but not showing them, Ji being a horrible mentor, and the insufferable puns and Lull Destruction but he'll mention his enjoyment of Bulk returning (even as a peripheral character), the story or at least concept, maybe Deker and his story with Dayu, and aspects of Jayden's arc. He said several time he doesn't care about the Sentai so he won't take issue with it being Shikenger USA like half the fandom does.
- This I can see happening. The Hype Backlash given to Samurai was because after RPM, Disney gave the re-cut of Mighty Morphin and disappointed many fans enough that they turn towards Shinkenger and started liking it, so when Samurai actually aired, they have been spoiled by Shinkenger and they hate it. Given that this is Linkara we're talking about, more likely that he didn't even watch Shinkenger during the Mighty Morphin re-cut era, so he's probably gonna give a fair review untainted by watching Shinkenger. If anything, he may even PRAISE the fight scenes, even if it's taken from Shinkenger, a lot of it looks awesome.
Like the Operation Overdrive example above, Lewis has words for Gosei.
- If the nature of the reference in the Jungle Fury videos is anything to go by, Lewis'll probably make mention of how helpful Gosei is as a character.
