To kinda return to Linkara being overly sensitive about stuff-in a recent review of Star Trek/Green lantern he lists almost all unfortunate implications various series had over the years(like Cisko being space Jeezus),and then blows up about Enterprise supporting genocide.Only that being one of the few Enterprise episodes I do remember(Dear Doctor),it plays out nothing like that.And really,there was no simple choice there.

He was trying to be funny. No need to take it so seriously.

No,he was pretty serious about it.Granted,the evolution doesnt really work like that,but hey,its Star Trek.
Honestly,Im not the greatest ST fan around.I saw that episode once on TV.
On the other hand,if your reviewing ST comics,dressed in Star Fleet uniform while wielding Nitpickers guide to Star Trek,you should get that the episode presented a no win situation.Which motivated the whole Prime Directive thing.

Haven't seen the review yet, but yeah, I'm sure he was being serious, since this isn't the first time he ranted about that specific thing. I read his Tumblr and he ranted about that there once.

You do have to wonder how high were Quesada and the gang when they came up with this?

Trouble is a fiasco, but ultimately a harmless one. Aunt May's done enough questionable things (like knowingly harboring an escaped supervillain in her home despite her nephew living there at the time) even without that being in continuity, and it's one of those books that would be safely swept into obscure continuity hell if not for AT4W.

Don't get me wrong, it is not by ANY means good, but Trouble is nothing compared to the likes of Sins Past and OMD.

Well,thats true.And it contradicts enough established continuity,that its pretty safe to say its not canon.

Fair warning, that IS an april fools video, so the opening is a bit odd. Linkara (and most of the other producers) has got a running gag of doing mock versions of other channel's formats, and this year was Jim Sterling.

Oh snap! I didn't see that one yet. Definitely going to have to check that one out later. I loves me some Jim effing Sterling Son.

*watches first few minutes, bursts out laughing* Oh my goodness, wearing the getup, he's a dead ringer for Jim. Bloody brilliant! I was kinda expecting him to do the accent though....OMG Z-Bots I totally had those as a kid. Awesome.

On a slightly related note, the announcement of Linkara's Exile's retrospective (which I haven't actually watched yet)_ actually got me back into the book after probably close to a decade. I'm knee deep in the Proteus arc, and man was that a great book.

A pretty good Jim Sterling parody!
I would love to see some comics reviews from Jim... maybe the 90s Dark Horse AVP stuff.

That was quite entertaining and quite accurate.  That's pretty much exactly what I said at the time.

Ironic, since that's about where Linkara fell off before coming back to the series for the retrospective.

Don't know about Linkara, since I haven't watched the retrospective, but me dropping off at about this spot wasn't due to lack of interest or declining quality IMO, but simply being distracted by other things. In fact where I am right now I feel it got a lot better due to the artist changing from Jim Calafiore to Paul Peletier.
