  • Wes Learns About the True Nature of Ransik's Evil! :idea:

    10
    Recently, I got into watching "Power Rangers" episodes again as every single episode of every single show is now available either on Netflix or as a re-run on Nickelodeon Nicktoons channel. However, a marathon of "Time Force" episodes was too good to pass up, so I decided to find out for myself what this season was all about. As it turns out, the fight between good and evil in the future (and/or the past, depending on the standpoint), isn't as black and white as previously thought of by the new Time Force Red Ranger Wes. The dangerous mutant named Ransik reveals to Wes that there's a dark side to the utopian future laid out in the time of Time Force. :shock: Through decades of research, scientists finally found a way to give all newborn children the exact traits and features that their parents would pick out for them. But one day, an accident inevitably happened. A can of DNA fell into the sewers, meaning that one less person would be born. Or so it would seem. But organisms have a tendency of wanting to survive, and Ransik was created! Mutated by the toxic effects of the underground sewers, Ransik was deformed from the moment he rose out of the filth. :( Shunned, victimized, and humiliated just because he did not fit in, Ransik found other mutants with defects, and organized them to get revenge on the world who treated them like outcasts! :!: Wes tries to tell Ransik that yes, it was wrong for the future world to shun him just based on how he looks, but revenge is never the answer! However, Ransik has not traveled back a 1,000 years in the future to listen to a lecture by a Ranger. So Wes and the other Rangers are stuck with the task of capturing all of Ransik's mutant cohorts, and trying to catch Ransik himself, in order to return Ransik to his normal place and time! :D This is a very philosophical episode, with moral questions to make even older viewers think about what direction they want to see the future go towards. 8) This is a great episode and season for this series, and I can't wait to see what else this season has in store! :idea: Enough said, true believers! ;)moreless
