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.
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.
