WMG: History of Power Rangers

Teaser/analysis guessing platform for future episodes

  • MMPRRemastered
    • He'll take his original video, cut it down to remove mention of episodes 33-60, add goofy effects, and post it as a joke.
      • It would be a VERY short video if he did that. Like, maybe 8 minutes.
      • More likely, he'll bring it up briefly at the beginning of the Samurai video as well as summarizing how Saban regained control of the franchise.
    • Given that RPM is coming out in March he could do this as an April Fools joke

  • Samurai
    • He'll start before the teaser addressing an unfortunate elephant in the room.
    • The fight with Negatron will be used as a teaser.
    • Linkara keeps referring to Deker as Cole.
      • On that note: calling Mentor Ji, Grumm.
      • And whenever he mentions Mike, he'll show scenes of Mike from Lost Galaxy. Any reference to the Green Samurai Ranger or Super Samurai Mode will be accompanied by footage from Ninja Storm.
    • Keeps referring to Xandred's medicine as booze.
      • Add to this, he'll point out that in Shinkenger, it was booze.
    • He'll bring up the fact that a lot of fans seem to dislike it, but point out some of the best parts of the show.
      • Though it's also possible that he agrees with some of that dislike. Several comments he's made on his twitter feed heavily imply that he'll eventually declare it to be a below-average season overall.
      • He'll likely touch on the fact that Samurai Sentai Shinkenger had an effect on opinions of this season, due to people watching that instead of the remixed MMPR that Disney put on.
      • Though considering that he said Operation Overdrive was the worst season he's seen, even after watching Samurai, he'll say that while it's an average season, he won't consider it as bad as everybody else says.
    • He'll Call Back to his Time Force review when he sees that the Samurai Rangers use their swords to pilot the megazord.
    • Following from previous mentions of swords that turn into guns, he'll note how the Fire Smasher and its cannon mode take the idea to its logical conclusion.
    • He won't be happy with how the first two episodes weren't aired for most of the season.
    • He won't be too happy with how little screentime Lauren is given near the end of Super Samurai especially since her time as Red Ranger has the rest of the team shilling Jayden.
    • He'll have to hate Clash of the Red Rangers- even if he's not an RPM fan, he'll have to be pissed at how none of the other RPM team-mates show up.
      • Given how he ripped into Once a Ranger for barely being a team up this is very likely.
      • He may even talk about how there's a even better teamup on the other side of the portal and saying something along the lines of why couldn't they have made that teamup.
    • Considering how much of a Bulk and Skull fan he is because they had characterization (He criticized a lack of Bulk in Lost Galaxy), he'll probably not like how Bulk and Spike are used, and may bring up how some fans thought Spike would be the Gold Ranger (Speaking of, he'll probably make a nod to Zeo when Antonio first appears.
      • He'll question who Spike's mother is.
    • When/if he talks about the opening credits he'll play a bit of the Mickey Mouse club intro to mock the name role call part.
    • In talking about Jayden, he'll contrast this with Nick of Mystic Force, talking about why he was so important as the original ranger on the team.
    • He'll mock the mega mode suits as useless and question why they even bothered making them if they only show up in the zords.
    • He'll be annoyed at how the theme song is just a remix of the MMPR theme.
    • He'll question the logic and limitations behind Symbol power, especially after Jayden creates a horse using it.
    • He'll make a call back to the origin story of Alan Scott when he hears Deker's name
    • He'll praise Deker's character arc as one of the stronger points of the series.
    • He'll note that Mike and Emily's romance is rather subtle and downplayed altogether, but still believable given how often they got paired together during the season.
    • 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. Another hint, unlike Operation Overdrive, he did not give warning about how he has 'words' for it at the end of the RPM episode.

  • Megaforce
    • Linkara will probably make some snarky jokes about Troy's acting being very robotic, especially after dealing with Mack and Robo Knight.
    • If the series piles on the environmental aesop, he'll probably call back to Wild Force.
    • After Samurai he probably won't hate this season too much, especially with the Legend War in Super Megaforce.
    • He'll dislike how bulky the new morphers are but enjoy the card angle.
      • As with Jungle Fury, there's a chance he'll like the morphers, since they aren't cell phones or wrist-straps.
      • He's seen using the morpher in Atop The Fourth Wall. Chances are he likes them.
    • Considering how he tends to like a lot of the Disney cast so far (SPD in particular), he'll probably get angry at Saban for barely using any, especially since most of the Disney cast still live where the shooting was happening (Depending on his opinions on Samurai and Jungle Fury, he may not like the inclusion of Casey and the Samurai Rangers). He'll probably be surprised that they got Danny Slavin back, and will be happy to see Tommy and Carter back.
    • He'll probably be annoyed at how many times they do the whole "Humans Are Special" and "For the Earth" drivel that he'll be reminded of Wild Force's "Never Give Up!" overuse.
    • Linkara will snark at how Gosei is Zordon's student and how he's been watching the Earth, and proceeds to ask where he's been the past few years.
    • He will do a side by side comparison of "Mega Mission" and "Day of the Dumpster".
    • He will make a joke about how the series ends in a cliffhanger like Turbo did.
    Linkara: (in text form) To be continued in Power Rangers Super Megaforce...
    Linkara: What's next? Super Megaforce Turbo? Super Megaforce Arcade Edition? Super Megaforce Hyper Edition?
    • Linkara will make a joke about how "pirates are in this year" for Super Megaforce.
    • He'll play clips from "Countdown To Destruction" anytime Gosei mentions this being the first time Earth has faced an invasion.
    • He will likely go ballistic when the "are you some kinda superhero" line is shown, might even declare the lady the new Dumbest person in power rangers ever
    • He will complain about the pre-Zyuranger teams that appear throughout Super Megaforce.
    • He will use audio from RoboCop when Roboknight is introduced.
    • He will point out the lack of creativity in the names, especially the whole Emily/Emma Mia/Gia thing.
    • He will question why the Megaforce suits are even needed when they are shown to be able to morph straight to the Super Mega suits.
    • He'll make a call back to Zeo, specifically the Machine Empire and how the Armada is what the Machine Empire could have been.
    • Whenever they get a detail about a past season wrong he'll ask "Did you even watch that season?"
    • Whenever a Sentai only suit shows up he'll ask "Who the hell are you?" At first in confusion but by the end in rage similar to "Shut Up Dax" from Overdrive.
      • Alternatively, he'll defend the Pre-Zyuranger suits by pointing out that there are Rangers all over the galaxy and that they have been around for centuries on Earth alone, so a group of previously unseen Rangers won't seem too out of it. However, he will wish they explained them better.
    • He will be disappointed by Super Megaforce's final episode, considering that the hyped-up 'Legend War' is nothing but a fight between past rangers and a bunch of X-Borgs. He might even compare it to the Sentai version (he did mention that he watched Gokaiger's legend war).
    • He will note how the rangers are getting savvy in 'Love is in the Air', albeit a wrong kind of savvy.
      • He will also point out Billy and an Aquitian's romance (or Andros and Ashley's) when the Super Megaforce rangers think lowly of a human-alien relationship.
      • Moreover, he will call out the rangers for being hypocrites when later it was shown that Emma had a full crush on Orion, going so far as to kiss him (on the cheek, though) before he headed back to his home planet.
    • He will point out the scenes with the villains' dead bodies (Vekar's body taken by Damaras and Vrak's body shown after being destroyed), wondering how they managed to get aired.
    • He will praise Vrak for out-gambiting his brother and the rangers.
      • He'll also praise Prince Vekar for being the Anti-Divatox. While he tended to throw tantrums like her, there were times where he showed competence as a villain. He'll also praise him for having an actual backstory, unlike Divatox.
    • He will be even more annoyed by the theme song. "Neo-Saban has done the impossible: make me sick of Go Go Power Rangers."
    • He will finish the review with a rant to rival Overdrive.
    • No matter what his feelings are for the season, he'll end up calling Megaforce a wasted opportunity.
    • Like the Operation Overdrive example below, 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.

  • Dino Charge (Feel free to add as the season progresses)
    • For the teaser he'll use the scene where Rexie charges in out of nowhere and tosses Iceage and the aftermath.
    • He will talk about how Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters, the season before Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger, was skipped and bring up the theory that it was because of how poorly Gobusters did in Japan.
    • He will compare the season to SPD. Both seasons have a higher number of Rangers than the usual six (with Dino Charge having ten if it goes by the Sentai footage). Also, if Torin is given a PR counterpart, then it will also have the non-human mentor that eventually became Rangers.
    • He will be very impressed with the casting choices.
    • He will bring up Lerigot and E.T. after looking at Keeper, and might point out that he is what Lerigot should have been.
    • He will point out the necessity to use ranger weapons instead of mundane ones when fighting a monster, as demonstrated by Tyler's poor shovel.
    • He'll theorize that given what happened in the last dinosaur series, there's a chance the dinogems contain some energem energy, and that mixed with the asteroids that fell demonstrates that the powers found this season are among the oldest in the whole series, since they predate the dinogems and other powers are more ambiguous in their creation/attatchment to the morphing grid.
    • He'll call Tyler the new Cole, in that he's searching for a parent again, and unfortunate casting will mirror his situation that he can never see him again.
    • Upon watching the role-call less opening of Dino Charge and the vast improvement of the theme as compared to Samurai and Megaforce, we'll get this:
    • He's gonna have a field day when he sees Tyler single-handedly destroy a Vivizord on his own. He might compare it to Carter and Mack.
    • He will compare Sledge and Poisandra to Zedd and Rita. For bonus points, he might compare Wrench to Baboo and Fury to Goldar.
    • He'll be tired of Koda's caveman speak quickly.
    • He'll call Kendall kind of like Cam in being Mission Control, smart but also rude and condescending as well.
    • He'll say that Tyler went to Carter Grayson's school of ranger tactics when he sees him ramming a monster with his jeep.
    • He will joke about Wrench sounding like Abridged Tristan Taylor. He'll probably even use the My voice gives me super strength sound clip in one of his fight scenes.
    • He will compare this season to Jungle Fury, since both seasons have a megazord that is comprised of 3 zords with red as the major component and is controlled via motion capture, rangers that work at a fast food restaurant, and a Mission Control that eventually becomes a violet ranger.
    • He will not be happy that pretty much everything the Rangers do has a Super Smash Bros. Narrator announcing what they are doing. He may harken back to other mysterious narrators we've gotten.
    • He'll have a flashback to the infamous stroller chase during Episode 5.
    • He'll talk a bit more about how fandom now considers Judd "Chip" Lynn to be the best of the series producers, on his previous involvement in the franchise, and he'll comment on whether his presence here has any of his fingerprints for how things have or haven't changed for the show.
    • He'll note that this is the first time Power Rangers doesn't have a yellow ranger.
      • Following that, he'll note how the suits, weapons, and zords have plenty of yellow anyways.

  • The Power Rangers adaptation of Ressha Sentai Tokkyuger
    • He will point out the Megazord's Unfortunate Character Design (where the forward section of the red Ressha lowers, making it resemble an erect penis).
    I think I got one of The Cinema Snob's porn parodies by mistake.
    • He will joke about Greeta's PR counterpart looking like the Grimace in drag.
    • He will cut to a clip of SPD when the first ever orange ranger appears.
    • Given his er... distaste with the car theme of Turbo, the train theme of this season probably won't go over well.
    • He will bring in Crazy Train sometime in the review.
    • He will dislike the megazord design, and might point out how there are better train megazords in previous seasons, even the one that is comprised of 5 zords.
    • There most likely will not be any of this since Saban may or may not adapt Tokkyuger.

  • The Power Rangers adaptation of Shuriken Sentai Ninninger
    • He will be taken aback by the sheer absurdity of StarNinger and the concepts surrounding him.
    • He will snark about Cam making his own ninja ranger team judging by the costume design.
    • He'll be confused about the differences in the zords and try to come up with a theory behind it.

Guesses for existing videos
  • SPD
    • 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.
      • 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.
      • Confirmed
    • 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.
      • Jossed.
    • 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.
      • Jossed.
    • 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.
      • Jossed.
    • 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.
      • Jossed.
    • 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.
      • Jossed.
    • 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.

  • RPM
    • Starting off snarky after emerging from "the Kalish era" on this big new series, only to see the doom, death and HSQ clips, saying finally, "OK, that's interesting. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Power Rangers RPM!" (Kinda in the style he did Time Force which he had great respect for as a "very good series.")
      • Alternately, he will do the inversion of his Power Rangers Turbo review opening. While in Turbo he opened by showing the show's more epic parts, he will open RPM by showing the show's sillier and funnier parts.
      • The first few minutes of "Ranger Blue".
      • Or the beginning of "Ranger Yellow, Part 1".
      • He ends up going with The Fridge Cannon.
    • I think except for Dr. K he'll go over the character episodes when he analyzes the rangers and their character development at the end of the episode, though he'll go over plot points from those episodes such as new zords.
      • He might include her episode alongside the others, since she is a very important part of the season.
      • Confirmed, though he does have a character recap at the end as well.
    • Linkara will go on a tangent like he did in Turbo about the zords being animal/vehicle hybrids.
      • He'll likely reference how in Go-Onger (the Sentai that RPM is based on) the Zords (called Engines there) were sentient and could speak, whereas in RPM they were just machines and thus it makes no sense to omit their voices and personalities while retaining both the animal designs and the moving mouths/eyes. And then remind us that he has no interest in the Sentai.
      • Or he won't mention the Sentai at all because, as he's established, he's had no interest in mentioning the Sentai unless he really has to. More than likely he'll give a short laugh at the Lampshade Hanging Dr. K gives about the Zord's eyes.
      • Confirmed about the zords having a difference, but he doesn't give the "no sentai" speech again.
    • He will probably like the abundance of helmetless shots and unmorphed civilian fights present in RPM, but probably won't like the shaky cam recording (and given how he pointed it out in Mystic Force he might have a full rant for it like he did for the back explosions) additionally he will probably like how the Military in RPM actually works with the rangers on several occasions and isn't just in the background waiting for the rangers to defeat the monster like it is in most PR seasons.
      • Shaky Cam is indeed an issue, though he does mention surprise that the military's actually working some, but not doesn't focus on it too much.
    • He will probably like Dr. K given that she seems to be the type of mentor he is constantly pushing for: she is usually very open with her team, doesn't waste time giving vague instructions or having the rangers solve a problem she knows the answer to when the city is under attack, nor does she ever needlessly put them in danger just to get a point across, and also monitors the fight as it happens and gives advice to the rangers as it happens.
      • He does one better. He calls her the best character in the entire series. (whether this is the whole of power rangers or just RPM is never explained).
    • He will probably like how almost all the rangers get a backstory that takes place a few years before they become rangers allowing us to get to know these characters better and making sure that all of the characters get a chance to shine and don't feel left out despite some getting more focus than others.
      • Confirmed, though he does say summer and flynn were underdeveloped by comparison.
    • Will probably mention the bizarre choice of using a baby carriage as a weapon when the baby is still in it, as well as how the heck a shielded city is broken into so often, and likely won't like the fact that it takes place in a different dimension (might even try to retcon it somehow)
    • His review might be similar to DT in that he praises RPM for having pretty good writing, acting, genuinely funny jokes, great fight banter and pretty good characterization however he might criticize that while RPM is good at building things up it doesn't always have a very good payoff such as how Dillon's virus is resolved rather quickly with Dr. K just conveniently coming up with a cure, or how the hybrids barely do anything in the finale despite that chilling scene where they're all activated.
      • Confirmed, though he actually doesn't do the direct dinothunder comparison.
    • Will also likely draw comparisons to In Space with Dillon and Tenaya's story, which was very similar to Andros and Astronema (whether this will be a good thing or not is still TBD)
      • Confirmed.
    • He will mention that while the demo theme song is pretty good, it doesn't really fit the season and notes that what we did get was okay (lyrics aside).
      • Alternately, he'll agree with the above comment but still hate what we did get.
      • He said that what we got was rock overload, and that even though it didn't fit the tone, the theme song should stand on its own.
    • He will probably like the Nitro Blasters as they are guns that fold into swords which he has stated is awesome on several occasions.
      • Not mentioned.
    • Whether he likes the ending or not he will likely point out and praise that Dr. K only took the morphers but not the jackets like Shayla did in Wild Force.
      • He does make a joke about it, but doesn't seem pleased one way or another.
    • When he gets to the scene of Ziggy commenting that he dreamed that he was on a date with Dr. K, he'll mention that after the season wrapped the two actors started dating and are now married.
      • That wasn't mentioned, but he does bring it up at the end when Doctor K. and Ziggy go to start a school together.
    • He'll bring up the Venjix from Forever Red. Either in passing or as part of a theory.
    • He'll dislike the narration before each episode like in Ninja Storm

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)
4.Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers (despite nostalgia value, too many fillers to place it any higher)
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)
9.Power Rangers Wild Force (underrated with excellent team ups and complex villains, but with a very iffy story)
10.Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue (decent with good characters, zords and a different feel, but no good villains)
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.
      • Jossed

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 Lightspeed Rescue-Carter. Obviously, surely by now, we all know this, he might even be Linkara's favorite ranger in the franchise.
Power Rangers Time Force-Katie. He says so in the review. Twice actually.
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).
Power Rangers Mystic Force-Chip. He says so in the review.

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.
  • 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.
Power Rangers Samurai - Despite the limited amount of screen time she got, Lauren or maybe Mike.
Power Rangers Megaforce - Robo Knight or maybe Orion depending how his story plays out

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 Zeo - Again, no one in particular.
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 Lost Galaxy - Maya. For being kinda weird and unrealistic but he doesn't seem to hate her either.
Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue - Dana. Refers to her as the blandest of the group.
Power Rangers Time Force - Lucas. Probably the first ranger that he flat out dislikes.
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 S.P.D. - Sam. Because, you know, he's freakin ball of light!
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.
