Default The darkness of Timeranger

I was chatting with MattEmily today about how much darker Timeranger was to Time Force. So I thought a thread about it would be cool.

I've heard a little about Timeranger and from what I have read its worse than Time Force. Way too dark for PR.

I really wish they brought even more of the darkness over. Obviously there is some stuff they couldn't do. But they could have kept FatCatFish killing Yuri/Jen's family. Eric dying like Naoto would have really added to the character. I like how they took Alex in his own direction though. Since his initial appearance didn't fit the Captain of Timeranger. I am also glad they went with Ransik over Gluto and his counterpart. But thats another story,.

This is why I hate Sentai, it just isn't suitable for children.

I think Time Force actually got a lot right. But like Codfish says they could have done even more. But I realize there are certain things they couldn't do. Its hard for me to complain. Because this is one of the best Sentai translation the show has ever done. Sometimes I felt like I was watching Timeranger. Which is a good thing. Since in my opinion, Power Rangers should be as close to the Sentai as possible.

Funny since Ransik seems a lot darker than Gluto being the main villain. Which was what I read they did in the Sentai that you guys always talk about. I would guess Gluto was one of the darker elements?

I am going to actually disagree with my Sentai brother. I think the Alex stuff would have been a lot better if they followed the storyline with the Timeranger Captain. But I agree about TF being one of the best adaptions. But Power Rangers always leaves at least a little to be desired.

Time Force already copy and pasted too many elements from Timeranger.

Timeranger is definitely very dark even moreso than Time Force itself.

yea it would've been nice if they kept some of the elements from Timeranger in there like Fatcatfish killing the family for example since Jen wanting to kill him just because he attempted to murder her and Alex while it made sense since she was too consumed with anger however I don't think someone attempting murder on her or her boyfriend would've caused that much anger.

I can't blame them with Eric since it's something Fox Kids didn't allow.

I'm definitely glad that they went with Ransik instead of Gluto.

Nope although Gluto did commit a lot of heinous acts based on word but really he wasn't that dark in Timeranger.

Too bad Fox Kids were a bunch of sissies. I've been watching Timeranger the past few days and its quite good.
