He shoots one of his old business partners to give his past self the guy's tech company and rewrites history so that he completely controls time travel. He blackmails a time agent to become his [[TheMole mole]] against [[TheHero Agent Jack Walker]] by again threatening to erase her family, then kills her anyway to tie up all loose ends and [[FrameUp frames Walker]] when he goes back to save her. After having arranged several failed hits on Walker directly, he sends his goons back in the past to murder the younger Walker and his wife by blowing them both up in their home.

* AdaptationDisplacement: The franchise is apparently based on a comic written by future ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|Reimagined}}'' scribe Mark Verheiden - who knew?

* CompleteMonster: In this series spun off from [[Film/{{Timecop}} the film]], [[SerialKiller Ian Pascoe]] is a time traveller from the near future who, after [[SelfMadeOrphan killing both his parents]] in 2007, has traversed time and space to MakeWrongWhatOnceWentRight throughout history, funding mob bosses, causing disasters and personally murdering countless people. In his first episode he kills the original UsefulNotes/JackTheRipper to take his place, and proceeds to work on achieving Jack's bodycount five times over. When the protagonist tries to stop him, Pascoe ties a [[ExplosiveLeash time-detonated bomb]] to a [[DisposableSexWorker prostitute]]'s neck before escaping. He reappears in 1950s UsefulNotes/Hollywood, where he electrocutes a famed actress's boyfriend before trying to crush her by tying her up and dropping a safe on her head. When the timecops arrest him, he stages a prison breakout, killing a psychologist and kidnapping the protagonist's colleague on his way out. He meets up with UsefulNotes/AlCapone in 1928 after previously having made him boss, and forces Capone back into his service. When Capone orders one of his goons to keep tabs on Pascoe, the latter murders the minion and gives Capone the man's bodyparts [[FingerInTheMail stuffed into a briefcase]]. Living solely for the thrill of murder, Pascoe's only goal was to become and remain "[[CardCarryingVillain the greatest killer in history]]."

* CompleteMonster: Senator [=McComb=] is a CorruptPolitician who will murder anyone to become an insanely wealthy despot. When time travel is invented he quickly volunteers to oversee the technology to abuse it for his own purposes. To fund his campaign for the U.S. Presidency he initially sends time agents back into the past to carry out {{Compound Interest Time Travel Gambit}}s. The people he directs to travel in the past for him and carry out his schemes are [[IWillPunishYourFriendForYourFailure threatened with having their entire families]] [[RetGone erased from history]] -- one such guy would rather be [[SuicideByCop willingly executed by the time police]] than face the alternative. He murders an old associate in the past to take over his tech company and rewrites history so that he completely controls time travel. He wants to use his power to turn the country into a corrupt plutocracy with himself at the top while letting the majority of the people starve or emigrate. He blackmails an Internal Affairs agent to become TheMole for him against the hero [[Creator/JeanClaudeVanDamme Agent Walker]] by again threatening to erase her family, then kills her himself to tie up all loose ends and frames the hero when he goes back to save her. He tries to murder Walker together with his wife before he even joined the agency by blowing them up in their home (as happened at the start of the movie), but Walker happens to survive in the original loop.

* InformedWrongness: The [[StrawLoser tech guy]] is portrayed this way. In one episode, he chronically suggests that they not time jump right away and let him tinker with the time machine to figure out why it's acting weird, and is always dismissed out of hand for not doing things "the police way". And then the time machine screws up ''again''. This happens several times.

* HilariousInHindsight: Senator McComb is running for President in 2004. He outright states that it'll be like the Reagan years again, the wealthiest 10% will flourish, the rest can flee to Mexico if they want. In 2004 Ron Silver (who played McComb) gave a speech at the Republican National Convention campaigning for George W. Bush.
