Nightly News Recap – G.I. Joe: Resolute episodes 7 & 8 online at AdultSwim!

Right on schedule, AdultSwim.com has posted the latest two episodes of Resolute, episodes 7 & 8.  As always check them out at the Resolute video page here.

I am a bit curious, because the site says episodes 9 & 10 will be shown tomorrow, but I was under the impression that the last part wouldn’t air until it was aired on television…also thought the last part was a 10 minute finale.  Guess we’ll find out.  As far as I know, these aren’t YouTube’d yet, but I’m sure it’s just a matter of time.

EDIT: Okay, I went back through my notes (yes I have notes from Joe conventions on my computer…I realize that’s sad), and the initial report was 10 5-minute episodes with a 10 minute finale for a total of 60 minutes.  So not only does that mean we get two more episodes tomorrow night, it means there are essentially two MORE episodes after that!  W00t! 

We’re getting close to the finale…I’m excited, but bummed at the same time.  This has been an awesome ride, I don’t want it to end!  I know full well Hasbro has geared up to move on to the film stuff, I just hope this Resolute universe doesn’t just end up floating away.  It’s too cool to be treated like that.  We’ll see, I guess.

EDIT #2: The episodes have been YouTube’d!

  1. *Spoiler Alert*

    They killed Storm Shadow!!!!!!!! How do they intend to make a spin-off series without Snake Eyes most formidable foe??? The action was awesome but if they killed SS, then they might be more reluctant to kill more major Characters. CC, Duke, Baroness, Destro, Scarlett, who’s next???

  2. Well… there are hundreds of characters to choose from. And kill. So I wouldn’t worry about that. And, consider the possibility that some of the characters (like scarface Duke) are not the same person from ARAH. Rather, he has a codename that has been used by different people.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if that is how Ellis is thinking of this since it seems to be of the same continuity as ARAH & Sigma 6.

  3. Given the sheer amount of character deaths thus far (Major Bludd, Storm Shadow, Zartan), it really looks like Resolute is its own micro-continuity that began with Resolute and will end with Resolute.
