About Linkara

Atop the Fourth Wall is a show about bad comic books. Linkara finds the surreal and the stupid and breaks them down page by page. You'll know why they're idiotic and how they can be improved.


  1. I don’t think that the theme song was that good. However, I wasn’t watching Power Rangers during this season so I don’t have much to say.

  2. I’m reasonably sure the reason that the Zeo power didn’t remain is the same reason they didn’t use the Mighty Morphin suits all the way into space. Budget constraints and Sentai footage. Sure narratively they could have handled it better, say maybe the Zeo powers became unstable from use and had to be remolded and filtered into the Turbo powers, but any reason besides narratively? It’s kinda obvious.

    • I’m going to be really annoying by making a reply each time because I have so much to say between every point I have, so apologies in advance…for the first time in ever.
      They probably had to adapt Carranger because otherwise they’d have a gap. Unlike these days on Nickelodeon where they’re restricted to the seasonal format and are thus “forced” skip certain Sentai or adapt them poorly as some mixture between two series, Saban during the Fox age, and Disney, produced Power Rangers at a REALLY quick and reasonable rate, that allowed them to pick things up without the clear poor budgeting going on these days. The only reason they DIDN’T adapt DaiRanger is because it had references to drugs and the sentai footage was MUCH more violent including blood and such- it didn’t lead off well from Mighty Morphin. This is opposed to why they didn’t adapt Go-Buster or ToQger which is just them taking TWO YEARS to make a show that under any other system would have taken just one. But yeah when Fox was in charge? No way they were skipping a season of Power Rangers and just letting there be a year of NOTHING, it would have sunk them.

    • He’s not asking out-of-universe. He’s asking why Zordon and the Rangers had to use new powers. He’s saying they should have explained it better in-universe.

      They could even just have said that the Zeo Crystals wouldn’t work in that place. It makes as much sense as when evil Alpha sent them to that theater where their powers didn’t work.

      Or maybe just that they used the Zeo crystals to make new suits that were better than the old ones.

      Point is, they didn’t say why. It shows how little they cared about the franchise at this point.

  3. The Mysterious M

    I grew up in the Zordon era (Mighty Morphin’, Zeo, Turbo, In Space). After it, I watched the various series to varying degrees (I watched Lost Galaxy and Time Force completely, and tuned out of Lightspeed Rescue and Wild Force for example).

    Turbo may be my least favorite series of the Zordon era, but Divatox is one of my favorite PR villains. She’s not the best or anything, but I’ve always found her (even to this day) hilarious.

  4. Are you ever going to do any Buffy the Vampire Slayer with it being the 20th anniversary of the first episode of the show?

  5. Are you sure that even if a chimpanzee would have the motor control that is necesarry to write, even if he was mentally able to?

  6. April Fools idea: HOPR for Emo Rangers on the BBC. How awesome would that be? XD

  8. Haha, I just watched the entire retrospective this last week while I found myself suddenly hospitalized (Gallstone lodged. Had to get my gallbladder removed. Ow.) and with nothing but my phone to keep me entertained for a full week mostly spent laying in a hospital bed.
