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.
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.
