Editorial Reviews

When a spy mission against Cobra Industries goes awry, a group of young G.I. JOEs is forced to hit the road as fugitives. Now the team members (Duke, Scarlett, Roadblock, Tunnel Rat, Ripcord and Snake Eyes) must use their wits and elite training to prove their innocence to the world before being caught by the authorities, Cobra or another elite military team called the Falcons.

With exciting, action-packed storytelling, spectacular animation and incredible voice talent (including appearances by Clancy Brown (Carnivàle), Michael Emerson (Lost), Phil LaMarr (MADtv), Peter MacNicol (Ghostbusters II) and Lee Majors (The Six Million Dollar Man) G.I. JOE Renegades is guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat

5.0 out of 5 stars A great show, too bad it's dead January 15, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
GI Joe Renegades recasts the core characters of the franchise as a modern infiltration outfit on the lam against Cobra Industries, an all-encompassing multinational that is secretly building assets to undermine the governments of the world. Although this seems like a pretty huge paradigm shift from the 80s cartoon, it actually goes a long way to enabling MORE over-the-top adventures. In classic GI Joe, Cobra was a terrorist cartel that somehow kept building huge snake-themed temples in the middle of America, while here it makes sense that an omnipresent business would dwarf the resources of a handful of commandos.

Renegades wears a veneer of dark seriousness, but at its core it is a logical extension of the show we grew up with. If anything, it feels closer to how most kids ended up playing with their Joes- Snakeyes, who was criminally neglected in the Sunbow program, gets plenty of awesome ninja action scenes here, and the smaller cast in general permits the other characters to similarly shine. Duke and Scarlet's personalities, which were kind of generic before, have been replaced with dry acerbic wit in this pilot, but as the show goes on, they become more rounded and likeable. I personally lament the serious spin and limited screen-time they gave Shipwreck, but we can't have everything. And the program does a great job of working in familiar characters in more varied ways- for instance since Cobra is already a giant evil corporation there is no need for Extensive Enterprises so Tomax and Xamot are now cult leaders. It sounds odd, but it totally works.

So to the title of this review. After a great first season, Renegades was put on hiatus to avoid conflicting with the second GI Joe movie (I'm not sure how that would work exactly but whatever).

"G.I. Joe: Renegades" is the latest action series from Hasbro Studios.

And similar to their successful "Transformers" series which features the main characters in different storylines with each series release, Hasbro Studios follows a similar trend after the TV series "G.I. Joe: Sigma Six" and the more adult-themed series "G.I. Joe: Resolute".

While G.I. Joe has been a successful toyline since 1964 with its 12 -inch figure lineup, it wasn't until the "G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero" 3.75 action figures were released that many children would flock to the toys and purchase the action figures, vehicles and playsets, thanks in part to the Marvel Comics comic-book series and the animated series which would begin in 1985.

Possibly the most unique aspect of G.I. Joe, unlike it's Hasbro counterpart with "Transformers and "Star Wars" is that, while those series continues to attract a demographic of all ages, "G.I. Joe" is one of the most unique series where its collectors are adults who grew up with the "G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero" toys from its 1982 release or its re-appearance in the '90s.

And while those who grown up with the toyline have introduced it to their children, many adults continue to show their passion for the toys and the animated series on forums and even a convention dedicate to G.I. Joe fans.

And with the second live action movie, "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" about to make its release (including the toyline), what better time than to get the children acquainted with the series and also get excited for the movie by releasing "G.I. Joe: Renegades" on DVD. Shout! Factory will be releasing the first half of episodes "G.I. Joe: Renegades: Season 1, Volume 1″ in June 2012.

"G.I. Joe: Renegades" is possibly the most unique G.I.

This was such a great take on GI JOE, and I would love to watch another season. Like Transformers Animated, G.I. Joe Renegades was getting better and better when the first season ended. Maye a kick starter is in order? I think this is the best GI JOE series ever made.

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING, what GI Joe is all about. June 2, 2013
By Dominic
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
FYI, I grew watching GI Joe : a real american hero and was a big fan of the toys also.

I had heard of Renegades, but I never watched it. I bought this blu ray and just finished watching it with my son. OMG what a great show! It was a new take, a prequel kind of thing. I am stunned at how good it was.

The main characters were, slightly, reinvented and fresh. The idea of introducing secondary characters was great. If you were a big enough fan and read the filecards that came with the action figures you could quickly recognize their real name before the codename was mentioned.

Artistically speaking, the drawing were amazing, a unique style that separated the show from the others.

It's really too bad they didn't come up with a season 2, they should have waited for DVD and Blu ray sales. They should have considered that 40 year old kids like me would maybe not tune in every week, but would definitely buy it later. Oh well...

Perfect for any GI Joe fan, don't hesitate to buy it, you will love.

5.0 out of 5 stars First time GI Joe viewer April 23, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
A little background:

This is my first GI Joe animated series. I am not familiar with the famed 80's cartoon, although to my knowledge this series is a little more serious and less cheesy.

I enjoyed the story of the Renegades. It is told from a less-cheesy-but-not-too-dark frame and features decent enough plotlines for an animated series aimed at kids (most notably, the Joes realistic weaponry is replaced in this series by futuristic laser weapons). The main plot revolves around the Joes being accused of a crime against Cobra industries and being pursued by both Cobra and the military, although several subplots are explored. (A notable subplot being the two-part backstory of Snake Eyes)

The Blu-Ray visuals look sharp with good contrast and saturation. It isn't particularly mind-blowing, but it looks great and serves the purpose. The sound really shines with a 5.1 DTS-HD MA track that really punctuates the action. I suspect it sounds a great deal better than the DVD or TV versions in this regard but I cannot comment completely. The season is separated onto 3 discs and several commentary tracks are included.

I bought this Blu-Ray as a deal of the day blind buy after seeing only the pilot, and I am glad I did so. It's a great add to my collection as a 24-year-old fan of animated action series.
