EPISODE REVIEW: GI Joe Renegades: “Prodigal” (Episode 20)

Say, that was pretty frackin’ good!

Like 18 years ago there was an X-Men cartoon on Fox, I think. The first episode involved them introducing someone you assumed was a main character - “Morph” was his name - and then killing him off for shock value in the last act of the episode. Of course this being an early ‘90s cartoon, they could get away with stuff like that (Unlike in the 80s) but it still felt kinda’ out of place, kind of vicious, so, of course, they brought him back a few years into the run of the show.

EPISODE REVIEW: GI Joe Renegades: “The Anaconda Strain” (Episode 19)

Glen Larsen, creator of Battlestar Galactica and The Misadventures of Sheriff Lobo, is frequently called “Glen Larceny” in the industry. (Though presumably not to his face). Why? Because he’s notorious for ripping off plots from movies, filing down the serial numbers, re-grooving the tires slightly, and passing ‘em off as his own. I mean, Galactica lasted one season, only told seventeen stories, and five of ‘em were blatant knockoffs.

The hub has been jiggering its Friday night schedule around for nearly a month now, and as a result I’ve missed several episode, or caught them a bit out of sequence. Sorry about that. I’ll try to be better.

EPISODE REVIEW: GI Joe Renegades: “Shipwrecked” (Episode 16)

The show ended up getting preempted last week for crazy reasons, and I missed it when they finally deigned to show it. This is unlike the Hub, they’re generally so thoughtful of their viewers, but I’ll just take this as a one time thing, particularly as they re-aired the ep this week for the benefit of dopes like me.

And, hey, guess what: It’s a really good episode!

Ho ho this episode was awesome. I mean wow this was amazing. Yeah Jack was annoying at the beginning but by the end I understood his motives for why he did what he did. Dear people I will have to come back and complete this later within the day.

EPISODE REVIEW: GI Joe Renegades: “White Out” (Episode 15)

Republibot 3.0's picture

Some years ago Tunnel Rat, Snowjob, and Frostbite were in the same unit, and were thick as thieves. Happy, silly-named insubordinate thieves. Snowjob and Frostbite went out skiing, there was an avalanche, and Frostbite died. Overcome with guilt, Snowjob left the army, dropped out of life, and moved to a cabin in Canada, which - I would be remiss in not pointing out - is what most people do to get out of having to join the army in the first place. Snowjob would seem to have some cause and effect problems.

Flint and Lady Jaye take Zartan out of prison to help them find the Joes. Turns out Snake Eyes has been using the guy’s bike, and it’s got a GPS tracker in it.

Meanwhile, the Baroness has stolen the prototype for some experimental bio-camouflage technology, and wiped the mind of the inventor to keep him from talking or selling the tech to others.

EPISODE REVIEW: GI Joe Renegades: “Brothers of Light” (Episode 13)

Republibot 3.0's picture

Three hours of TV, six shows, four of which I have to review myself. I haven’t even gotten started and my fingers hurt, and I’m suffering the profound psycho emotional discord that comes from having foolishly attempted to watch “33 1/3rd Revolutions Per Monkee” today. We’ll see how this goes:
