While the first half of the season released prior was groan inducing (Is it me or did someone forbid DIC from having a single punch thrown and connect onscreen?) with stories and characters that didn't inspire the same sentimental feelings that the prior episodes had. I understood these were largely different characters but OK. Then came this second half of the season. Spoilers somewhat ahead:
Many of the G.I. Joes I grew up with returned. Grunt, Zap, Scarlet, Stalker, Snake Eyes, Duke, Mutt & Junkyard, Lowlight, Lady Jaye, Flint, Wetsuit, Hawk, Roadblock, and more. Too bad Scarlet is now a shop-a-holic airhead. Hawk is clueless. The stories are contrived or preachy. Gone is the charm of the original G.I. Joe cartoons.
I would only recommend this set to die-hard G.I. Joe fans who want to see anything close to the toons they watched growing up. And when I say "anything close" I mean heavy emphasis on ANYTHING. Oh well. Still beats the G.I. Joe Movie from 2 years ago.
Gone is the familiar "A Real American Hero" theme song, which is replaced by one that mentions America once instead of several times. The "A Real American Hero" tagline is missing from the show's logo as well. This was obviously done to sell the show easier to other countries.
The picture quality is probably the best Shout Factory could get using the original video source material. It still looks a lot better than any video cassette copies enthusiasts have been watching up until now. The audio is mono but has good clarity. There's been no fake stereo conversion performed here.
I'd recommend people buying this set either used or later
