G.I. Joe: Renegades Episode Twenty-Five added to Episode Guide

The beginning of the end is here.  Over the past several months we’ve seen these characters evolve, seen the story play out (some would say a bit too slowly) and we’ve been through a roller coaster ride of ups and downs.

Ups as we saw the great growth of characters like Major Bludd, Zartan, and Destro…. ups as we got great cameos by Wild Bill, Barbecue, and Law & Order.  Downs as the Bio-Vipers made appearance after appearance, and downs as Ripcord turned out to be a lot less dead than previously believed.  The biggest down, of course, came with the announcement that Season One would be essentially the only season of G.I. Joe: Renegades before an ill-timed “hiatus” to give them a chance to retool for the movie sequel.

Through it all, I’ve been here, staying up way too late, and while many folks consider Friday and Saturday nights a time for letting loose and partying, I glued myself to the computer and encoded, then uploaded video.

I’ve had people actually ask if me I was sort of glad the series was ending, just because I wouldn’t have to spend several hours every episode posting a review.

Hell No.

I’d trade that time for G.I. Joe: Renegades continuing.  In a heartbeat.  This show got the short end of the stick, and it is a shame.

Enough of that.  Onward and upward.  As this universe ends, the G.I. Joe movie sequel begins, and hey, it could be worse…it could be 1995.  So, time to sit back and watch this stage of A Real American Hero fade into the ether, and see where things go from here.  Check the Episode Guide, or click the link below to go there directly.

  1. This episode had what was, to me, the funniest moment of the season/series- Snake Eyes escapes the Cobra Lab, stops, puts on a helmet and drives off on a golf cart dealie, crashes, tosses the helmet, gets on his motorcycle that was hidden a few feat away… and puts on a DIFFERENT helmet. I understand that he can’t go around on high speed vehicles unprotected for censor/content reasons… but that he actually swaps helmets was ridiculous to me.

    I get the feeling that the “mutual friend” mentioned in this episode will end up being Abernathy, if they have time to actually deal with that next week- With the show ending in one episode, their really isn’t much time left to actually get to the “Joes clear their names and form a new unit under Hawk, along with the Falcons and the various one-off characters” ending that would have made so much sense.

  2. The videos sent to Scarlett from Snake Eyes were a little too convenient, I thought. Too many of the camera angles that were just right to explain everything in the scenes between Snakes and Prof. O’Hara. Other than that, a Really good episode! Loved it!

  3. Oh yeah, the Falcons. Lady J and Flint. They haven’t been much of a presence for awhile (they’re even cut from the opening now that Ripcord is back). What’s going to happen with them? Is it going to be like DistantFred mentions? Oh well. I’ll enjoy the last episode either way, I’m sure, and will miss Renegades when it’s gone.

  4. I kind of thought the same thing, but figured it was more the video starts, a flashback takes over, then it fades back to the actual video. Yeah, it was convenient, but it needed to be in order to tell the story.

  5. Me as well. I do wish the Falcons were a larger part of the season finale, as that might indicate a movement towards forming the “real” G.I. Joe team. But knowing the writers had this series planned out for a few years, they couldn’t really wrap it up in Season 1. Considering there is absolutely no sign of Flint, Lady Jaye, or any of the military folks in the promos for the last episode, that seems to be one loose end that will not be tied up. Pity.

  8. I agree with the thoughts on Abernathy. That certainly makes sense, and Scarlett seemed to have some sort of fringe connection with him during the season opener.
