Hello again all,
I was rewatching my DVDs of the series recently and I was thinking, although the show is still as entertaining and witty as it was in it's prime, I can't help but think the characters could have benefitted from a more serious treatment. Maybe not anime serious, but something along the lines of Batman TAS.
The Negaverse and return of Taurus Baulba would have made some great arcs, I did like in the Steerminator how DW was injured, can you imagine how that would have been with more drama...Taurus Baulba is back for revenge and is looking for Gosalyn, and how can Darkwing, injured and in a wheelchair protect her against his most deadly adversary? The humor would of course still be a part of the show, I love that moment in Twitching Channels where Megavolt is gravelling for DW to take them home and DW smacks him and says "Get ahold of yourself! You don't want to ruin your reputation as a villian do you?!" Moments like that are part of what makes the show so great.
