The Tamers dub was a big step up from the Adventure dubs.

One big problem with the Adventure dubs is that they seemed to be absolutely terrified of letting a moment be silent, even if it was silent in the JP version. Everyone was constantly chattering, yapping, tossing out jokes - there's no pauses for comedic or dramatic effect, except, like, once.

The music didn't help, it was all loud and poorly used. The Adventure Dubs weren't bad, not at all, but I can at least see why someone would prefer the original VA over that.

Is there any way to watch Digimon Savers online without having to resort to files? I have spent a while looking for it but netflix dosnt have it and neither does hulu, and the only thing I have found is low quality youtube videos.
The dub changed the name to Digimon Data Squad, try looking for that?

Though you might wind up with, you know, the dub.

I don't understand how someone can watch digimon without the dub. The dub is what makes it Digimon.
The first few seasons, definitely, but Savers has the protagonist and his agumon calling each other ANIKI like they're no good delinquents and that alone is worth watching the original for

Nothing tops the episode where Ken gets kidnapped and tortured in the back of a semi. That was dark as poo poo.

As someone who has never watched the US dub and everything he's read about it makes him sick, I have to wonder why people defend it so much. I have to defend my own Latin American dub though, directly from the Japanese version and masterfully dubbed, though with a bit of confusion over which names to use (they always stuck to the same, but it was a weird mix of original and dub names). Apparently Savers was dubbed from the US version, but by that time I was already watching subs anyways.
The English dubs for adventure and 02 forced in some lame jokes and awkward music cues, but the Tamers dub is actually really good and treats the source material with respect. There's still some added lines, but it's nothing that ruins anything, and a lot of the jokes actually land.

And the dubs for the first two seasons aren't really bad. They have problems, but they were faithful where it mattered, for the most part. poo poo, they were even pretty upfront about the fact that Wizardmon was dead as a doornail, from what I remember.

That song was poo poo, but the theme song was boss. The later series' dubs not using it (is it a rights thing?) is a tragedy.
It's not a rights thing, it's that the Latin dub was made independent of the US one, directly from the source material. They adapted from Japanese > Spanish, not Japanese > English > Spanish.

That seems like a nice way of saying that it won't be repeating stock footage and the bare minimum of animation, like mainline digimon series.

Also that it might not be 50+ episodes, either. I could see it just being one or two cours.

There was a blu-ray remaster of Adventure 01 as part of the marketing for Tri. You can see the difference in this video:

adventure and adventure 02 had some bad moments but Tamers treated the material with a decent amount of respect. There were some jokes added in the dubbing, but only in the goofier moments, and they generally worked.

The dub of Tamers is pretty good. They only add lame puns where they can get away with it - more comedic scenes, scenes of the characters interacting, whatever. There's no random puns thrown out during dramatic moments like there were in adventure/adventure 02.

This is also why episode 21 looks loving amazing. I honestly would love an entire series of Hosada-Digimon, I mean he's expressed a dislike for the Digital World so it would all be based in the real world, and it would probably be amazing.

Just a small story I want to post.

Back when season 1 was airing on Fox Kids, my friend and I made our own Digimon partner, crest, etc like little kids love to do when they pretend (We were in ether 4th or 5th grade by that point). The interesting part is that we also decided to make up our own different ways of digivolving. She came up with fusing with her digimon (bio-merge) to be a different level. I decided it would be cool if I could digivolve as well (Spirit evolution). So I always get a laugh when watching Tamers or Frontier just by the fact we came up some of the methods before the show did.
so she watched dbz and you watched magical girl shows

Does that mean Savers' protagonists are the strongest? Because Gotsumon brought a bunch of Okuwamon into the real world and they got beat up (I think all by Masaru and Agumon/RizeGreymon?)
yes, but not because of whatever the gently caress you just said, but because the main dude punches things that are on fire

It cannot be overstated how much I do not like season 2. I really, really do not like season 2. If anything proved to me, personally, that it's not just an act I put on for comedy, it's how disappointed I was at being reminded of season 2 for a brief moment by TK's digivice. I really wish they just went all the way and ignored season 2 entirely. It would make a lot of things make a lot of sense.
It's been 13 years, man. Move on. 02 had issues but it wasn't the worst thing to ever happen in the history of man.
