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.

Sorry that you were forced to re edit all your previous HOPR I know that must have added a lot to your work load on top of the regular show and any other projects your doing.

I think he’s always had plans to re-edit his earlier works. With HOPR on hiatus until the end of Dino Charge, he’s probably now got the chance to do so.

When Power Rangers was new, was it common knowledge in America that it used footage from a Japanese show? Because I’m pretty sure that wasn’t known in the UK, we thought it was just a straightforward American show.

I can say that I had no idea it was using footage from a Japanese show. But then, I was also like four years old when it came out, so my mental faculties weren’t quite developed enough to be able to figure it out without being told.

It was common knowledge among a certain crowd, but not amongst the kids who watched it.

I didn’t find out until i was in college. I hadn’t watched the show since i was ten or twelve or whenever, and when wikipedia first came along, i was browsing random articles and saw the PR article which mentioned the thing with the Japanese footage.

First time you had mentioned kamen rider, that I had heard anyway. Not sure what your problem is with that, considering it has jackshit all to do with power rangers. I mean you can just skip the movie and specials that have crossovers with sentai if it upsets you that bad. But if you’d rather watch shit like kamen rider dragon knight, ok. There again you’re getting paid for this so whatever. Of course, you mention toei getting your videos shut down. So I’d assume that would leave a chip on your shoulder about anything they make, including kamen rider… Read more »

Not only does he not hate the Super Sentai, he’s reviewed a part of Zyuranger and said he’d be okay with finishing out the storyline there.

Also, I may have found the what I’m going to support on Patreon with Tattooed Teenage Alien Fighters. No one remembers that show. I watched it when PR was on repeats.

The color/race thing seems a little too much to be just coincidence. I did some searching and found a video where they guy who played the black ranger said that nobody noticed until the new actress for the yellow ranger showed up, but then he started talking about how hip hop was a prerequisite for his character audition.

I also found a Reddit thread that was admittedly cherry-picking several other examples (like comparing the colors to flag colors), but it does seem like an oddly large amount of points to be completely coincidental.

Well, the thing is, there’s the original Yellow Ranger from the pilot who wasn’t Asian, and an entire other group competing for the roles that didn’t line up.

At first I was confused but then I read the description.

Excellent video Linkara, cool to see you cover new material for these earlier rangers seasons, glad you were able to get these up on youtube, sorry you had to deal with that copyright claim nonsense ): I do have two minor nitpicks though, to each their own though, I respect your opinion, just wanted to throw my own two cents in lol. At any rate…. 1) Even though Goldar was referred to as a flying monkey insultingly once or twice I think, his costume design is actually that of a reverse Griffin, so he always looks more like a winged… Read more »

You had to re-edit? 🙁 I haven’t watched this as yet but I just wanted to say it’s great to see this up in a format that can stay up without fear of it being taken down. Brings back such good memories: I knew 0 about Power Rangers until my brother and I binged watched several of these on a computer hooked up to a TV. Is it weird that the sort of childhood nostalgia I feel in hearing the name Power Rangers is not in the show itself but a retrospective about it? Anyway, going by an above commentator,… Read more »

I never really understood why a black guy in black, Asian in yellow, etc-etc… was considered ”racist”.
What, they can’t ever wear ANY color that might be vaguely close to their skin color ?
Honestly, this is just so very silly(stupid) for me. -_-

It’s not about wearing the colors. It’s about those being their official colors. It’s not complicated. You try it some time: tell all the Asians they get to be on the yellow team and the black people they are on the black team, and see how it goes.
