Power Rangers Time Force is still considered one of the best seasons in franchise history, and Red Ranger Jason Faunt feels that comes down to one key thing.
Faunt, who played Red Ranger Wesley Collins, revealed his favorite part of filming the hit show, which was Time Force's real ace in the hole.
"You know I think the relationships that our cast had," Faunt said. "We were very, very close, and during the filming, ya know I haven't seen all the different seasons, but it felt like we were always doing something different. Where we filmed, our locations, but I think the closeness of the cast is what really set us apart, because they're like brothers and sisters to me today so we enjoyed that, that camaraderie."
Time Force released in 2001 but took place in the year 3000 in a utopian-like society. In that time all criminals are successfully in cryogenic prison, save for one named Ransik, and it is he who manages to free a host of other criminals before heading back in time. The Rangers follow him to the year 2001, and that's where the majority of the show takes place.
Wesley isn't actually the first Time Force Red Ranger in the show. When Ransik frees the prisoners he manages to slay the current Red Time Force Ranger Alex, leaving the Rangers down a man. When they get to the year 2001, they meet Alex's ancestor, who turns out to be Wesley, and he then is brought into the team.
Faunt would reprise the role of Wesley once more in Power Rangers Wild Force, including the fan favorite Forever Red episode that united 10 other Red Rangers from all across the timeline. He also took part in the Legendary Battle reunion episode of Power Rangers Super Megaforce.
Faunt's era of Power Rangers is also the setting for the recent Hyper RPG Saban partnership Power Rangers Hyperforce. The show features a new team Time Force cadets that end up back in the past, which turns out to be 1994 Angel Grove. Time Force Pink Ranger Jen Scott appeared in the first episode, and fans would certainly love to have another Ranger show up right?
