Mighty Morphin Power Rangers

  • From the intro to his History of Power Rangers series: "...Otherwise, this will be an attempt at serious analysis. Yes. Serious analysis of Power Rangers. I'll let that part sink in for a moment."
  • Also from the intro: "Liking a cheesy kids' show to the point that I'm actually doing analysis of it doesn't make me a freak any more than someone who thinks that The Phantom Menace was the best Star Wars movie is a freak... though that is very sad.
  • From History of Power Rangers - Mighty Morphin' Series One, his WTF moment at Zordon's request for "five overbearing and overemotional humans" to help save the world.
Cquote1

 Linkara: Are you supposed to be joking? Five overbearing and overemotional humans? Yeah...those are traits that make for great superheroes. Has someone changed the water filter in your tube lately?

Cquote2
Cquote1

  Linkara: Oh my god, Lord Zedd has access to the Otherworld of Silent Hill? No wonder he looks so freakishly awesome! ...Though he must've hired an interior decorator or something. His version of the Otherworld is rather well-lit and has a surprising amount of foliage.

Cquote2
    • Linkara's epic rant about the scene in the second series of Power Rangers with the runaway baby carriage.
Cquote1

 Linkara: "Anyway, to make a long story short, they decide it's time to "can this bitch"..."

Jason: "Time to can this fish!"

Linkara: "And defeat it. Lord Zedd takes it well."

Cquote2
    • The PWNED caption over the scene of Tommy telling Goldar "You are... out of you mind!" and then landing a flying punch on his chest before kicking his sword away.
  • At one point Linkara calls season two The Tommy Oliver Show Featuring the Power Rangers.
  • In his review of Season Three of Mighty Morphin, he repeatedly refers to the Zeo Crystal as the "MacGuffin Crystal," saying that it will never be mentioned again. It's the way he says it.
  • The teaser with Billy and Adam sticking their hands out of the ground to grab some Tenga.
Cquote1

  Linkara: "Oh my god, Ninja Zombie Power Rangers! This show is Freaking Awesome!"

Cquote2

Power Rangers Zeo

  • When going through the color changes of the season, when he gets to Tommy:
Cquote1

 Linkara: And yes, Tommy, the Native American, is now the Red Ranger. Whoops.

Cquote2
  • His knocking on the Dawson Casting when talking about the infamous episode, "There's No Business like Snow Business" (paraphrased):
Cquote1

 Linkara: This is a little uncomfortable, as she's supposed to be in her thirties, while Tommy is still a teenager. Well, in the show, anyway. I don't think anyone in the casting department has ever seen a real teenager.

Cquote2
  • "Last time on Power Rangers." *scenes of the Command Center blowing up* "Eh, nothing that important happened."

Power Rangers Turbo

  • Both parts of "History of Power Rangers: Turbo" get a lot thanks to its awfulness:
    • "Welcome friends, to Power Rangers Turbo: the series that almost ended the franchise."
    • "After a filler episode in which the Rangers almost get baked into a giant pizza...Excuse me a moment. (walks away) AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH! (walks back in, calmly continues review)" Poor guy, there's only so much he could take.
    • His response to the Turbo Zords, which can be summed up in one word: "WHY?!?"
      • "Uh, yeah, you've got cars now; they're super awesome. Here's the keys and your ranger powers- byyyye!"
    • "Tommy is suspended over the Vortex of Eternal Sorrow. I imagine it's like replaying this season in an endless loop."
    • His scathing rant on Turbo at the end of part one:
Cquote1

 Linkara: This should've been the team graduating to the next level, dealing with the harsh world of adulthood as metaphor for growing threats and more dangerous adversaries. The stakes should've been higher, the audience should've grown along with the characters, and the characters developed to their fullest. Instead, we've got a friggin' twelve-year-old driving around in a supercar, the Rangers tossing the keys to their weapons over to a bunch of untested newbies, our wise leader and quirky-but-intelligent robot buddy replaced with a woman pretending to be deep and her jive-talking faux-street robot, intergalactic empires with armies of deadly soldiers replaced with a woman whose mask doesn't fit right in a submarine along with her incompetent nephew, and her tendency to whine every five seconds because she doesn't have the good sense to set her damn explosives for thirty seconds instead of an hour, AND WE HAVE A POLICE LIEUTENANT RUNNING A FREAKIN' JUICE BAR! GAAAAAHH!

Rita Repulsa: I have a headaaache!

Cquote2

Power Rangers in Space

  • "History of Power Rangers: In Space" gives us two. One is "They remove Psycho Yellow from the Megazord by using the anti-virus technique of hitting it with a sword."
    • "There is however one good part where Raph hits Elgar" * shows clip of Raph hitting Elgar* "And I like Elgar getting hit, as a matter of fact lets see that again. * shows the clip again.* Hah! That's for Zordon's tube, you cone-headed freak!
    • "KISS HER YOU IDIOT"
    • His authentic glee at the fact that the battlizer isn't just glitter.
    • "But this isn't the last we see from Darkonda, because it turns out he has extra lives... Yeah, he has extra lives. I wonder if he also has a save file he can load from."
    • When T.J. says something about heading to the Dagobah system, Linkara says, "And hey, if Yoda can't help them find Zordon, who can?"

Power Rangers Lost Galaxy

  • "Sometime, in the not-too-distant future...we're down in Deep 13!"
  • "Wow, Power Rangers takes Science and beats it with an aluminum bat."
  • "Oh goody, beads."
  • From this episode of History of Power Rangers--where, keep in mind--Linkara only does narration, we don't see him--we have Linkara ranting about the pseudo-suspense of character death on Power Rangers, because of course they'd never kill off anyone on a kids' show. And then, abruptly, we see the character in question actually die, and for all of a second we see Linkara, shocked, almost falling out of his chair, before cutting back to footage from the show. It would've been tragic, but for some reason that half-a-second had me laughing.
    • As sad as the rest of it is, the camera briefly cuts away from the review, showing him jump backwards when Kendrix gets blasted after he rants about it all being "false drama" as if to say, "geesh."
  • When explaining that the Savage Sword grows bigger with every blow: "Well, at least we finally have an explanation for why Cloud's sword is so frikking huge."
  • PATENTED KIRK SHIRT RIP!
  • "Mike! Wait, I never met Mike. Who the hell is he?!"

Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue

  • "Thank God! We'll be saved by Clark Kent, The Pink Punk, Mega-Porn-Stache Man, The Mighty Crossdresser, and Elderly Woman!"
  • His abject glee at Carter trying to destroy a monster by running its ass over.
  • The honour of "Dumbest Person in Power Rangers Ever" goes to...the woman telling the girl that there's no such thing as monsters.
    • In the team-up, the episode that confirms that, yes, the last six seasons DID happen.
    • In a series where the Rangers DON'T have secret identities and defend the town from monsters ON A REGULAR BASIS.
  • This little bit, right after the Red Ranger runs at a giant monster with only his gun;
Cquote1

 Come on, you bastards! Take a shot at me right in the nose!

Cquote2
  • His brief comment on the Titanium Ranger's gun that turns into an axe.
Cquote1

 "Melee weapons that become guns are fricking awesome! And no, gunblades do not count since it's not a gun that transforms into a sword, it's a sword whose hilt is shaped like a gun, which is stupid."

Cquote2
  • His reaction to Vypra being consumed by Queen Bansheera: "Oh, now you learn how to act! Little late for that now, lady!"
  • Referring to Carter's direct attack on Bansheera as the "I AM A MAN!" punch.

Power Rangers Time Force

  • Starting the Power Rangers Time Force review with a clip from the original series of the Rangers optimistically hoping for a future with no suffering or war....then cutting to the villains blowing things up and kicking the asses of the Rangers.
    • Mixing up the Time Force finale 'The End of Time' with the Doctor Who special of the same name.
    • "KISS, YOU IDIOTS!"
  • This exchange:
Cquote1

 Wes: "Eric, is that you?"

Linkara: "No, it's Zordon mystically restored to life. WAKE UP, WES!"

Cquote2
  • Also this bit:
Cquote1

 "After Katie throws a driver out of his vehicle after telling Jen to be polite to him"

Linkara "That's Katie. I like Katie."

Cquote2

Power Rangers Wild Force

  • His growing confusion over the narrator in Power Rangers Wild Force. "Seriously, Mr. Narrator, who the hell are you?"
    • "Yes, this is the new Red Ranger... and he's talking to a monkey." (technically a chimpanzee, but that's aside)
    • "Oh boy, here we go..."
    • The vicious caption riffing on the backstory of the Animarium. "Sewer systems hadn't been invented yet, but the animal/human peace was what was important."
      • "His CGI was toxic to nature!"
    • His reaction to Jen's Fetish Fuel outfit - "Holy crap, Jen. THAT'S special assignment gear for Time Force?!"
    • When Taylor punches Cole in the stomach and "drafts" him into the Rangers, he imagines how it would've been if Zordon had done things that way. "You have been chosen to form an elite group of heroes to fight Rita. And if you don't join up, Alpha will kick your asses until you do."
  • His interpretation of Danny's pantomiming in The Teaser: "Actually, it sounds like it was about a kissing booth run by witches who pray to their god, Danny. The townspeople forced to write up their wills and drink themselves to sleep in fear. But, hey, props to Max for understanding any of that."
  • After the flashback of Shayla and Merrick singing to the deer zord, Linkara shouts "Do you people begin to understand why I miss Ron Wasserman so much?!"
  • His reasoning for thinking about why Bulk and Skull respected Tommy so much in Forever Red.

Power Rangers Ninja Storm

  • From Power Rangers Ninja Storm, the inevitable response to the Rangers getting a bee weapon.
    • His complaining about Ninja Storm not taking seriously the fact that Power Rangers are real, and that in several seasons, important public events should be proof enough that the Power Rangers are real. Just the way that he almost whines in angry frustration makes it absolutely hilarious.
      • "This stuff happened! You can't deny it!" It goes on to the point where you think he's dealing with the PR-verse equivalent of 9/11 truthers.
      • "There was a freakin' alien invasion!"
    • The demonstration of how similar the theme song is to "Help Me Rhonda".
    • "Anyone else looking at the color-coded Ninja academy uniforms and seeing Slifer Red, Obelisk Blue, and Ra Yellow?"
    • The caption on when Sensei Guinea Pig is explaining how he was transformed.
Cquote1

  THAT IS NOT AN EXPLANATION.

Cquote2
    • The growing amount of times he says, "Because...uh...I have no idea"
  • "And now it's time for another edition of Weirdest Martial Arts Techniques EVER!"

Power Rangers Dino Thunder

  • "Oh yeah, and there was that period where time kinda reversed and we all became children and a bunch of aliens took over for us and Aisha remained behind in Africa in the past except she became a teenager again when time was restored and her family moved over to Africa too and this girl named Tanya joined us and...well, I guess all of that wasn't important. Also, Kimberly dumped me."
  • Ninja Staring Contest.
  • "Zeltrax gains a new Zord and-HOLY CRAP, HE JUST BLEW UP A MOUNTAIN!"
  • Doing his best to build up what the franchise did for its 500th episode, before admitting it's a Clip Show.
  • He refers to Tommy's sacrificing the Zords as "The T.J. manuever."
  • Linkara has a surprisingly philosophical idea about why Tommy goes through what he does in this season, such as being locked in morphed form, stuck as invisible, or fighting his former Ranger selves in the depths of his mind... before admitting that he's probably just rambling.
  • This gem...
Cquote1

 Mesogog: Launch an aerial assault. The citizens of Reefside will think that idiot Lothor has returned.

Linkara: Heh, I like Mesogog already. :D

Cquote2
  • His disbelief at the silver stripe on the Green Ranger's helmet, pointing out that, as the suit was featured in the Clip Show, they really shouldn't have made such a mistake.
  • Pointing out the suggestive line from the first episode.
Cquote1

 Elsa: My master calls me Elsa.

Linkara: Gee, Mesogog is into some kinky stuff! :3

Cquote2

Power Rangers SPD

  • The first time the Omega Ranger & Battlizer-equipped Red Ranger strike dramatic poses, the screen flashes up "Crotch Shot" thanks to the camera being positioned directly inline of their crotches.
  • Go Go Power Sexism!
  • "I am Omega. Physics for losers."
  • Snarking about how Jason David Frank not returning for the second Dino Thunder/SPD crossover, even in voice over form, works out great since it just means that all we see of Tommy is his morphed form & that was how he was seen for a large chunk of Dino Thunder anyway.
  • "Sam... Has no Character Development. He is a ball of light. Moving on."
  • His slight befuddlement at the series' lackluster titles for its opening episode and finale. ("Beginnings" and "Endings", respectively.)
  • As truthful as it is in regards to its overuse, is actually kinda hilarious hearing his complaining about the abundance of explosions this season and how it make both heroes and villains look like poor shots.
  • "There. Happy, now? I made a Room joke in this. Moving on."
  • At the very beginning of the series, mentions the EPIC way the show starts with Grumm blowing up a planet, followed by him commenting earnestly, "And there's your nightmare fuel kids!"
