  • Good animation, voice acting, and interesting characters can't shield its theme

    I did give this show a chance and I do see some good factors (Duke cares about his teammates and rescues civilians, Snake Eyes sacrifices himself at one point and they are protecting society). The animation is very good for a saturday morning show and the voice actors do a great job. But the reason I'm being so hard on this show is that is glorifies war (fantasy or not) and portrays it very unrealistically with no deaths, let alone serious injury. War is hardly ever justified (I'm not a pacifist) and only three wars were in our history (Revolutionary, Civil, and WWII). Unlike Star Wars where the characters picked their battles very carefully, war is the solution and an everyday thing. Although it is worth seeing for the compelling schemes and rescues, the tiresome "plots" are about good enough to fit on the back of a postcard, giving me more reason to find better things to watch/do.moreless
  • "Now you know, and knowing is half the battle" "G.I. Joe the real American Hero." This was truely an 80's classic.

    The show was entertaining, and really not that violent considering they were always fighting wars it wasn't graphic. There always was the Public Service Announcement at the end telling you how to get out of a fire, or to not talk to strangers etc. So the show was sort of educational as well. I wasn't a huge fan, but I enjoyed watching it, I had buddies, who had alot of the action figures and vehicles, I had some, but was more into other things. I still thought this show was great and fun to watch. It will always be an 80's icon.moreless
  • Gets worse over time.

    Back in 85 when I was six I loved this show. There was Snake Eyes, Duke, Flint, Cobra Commander, Scarlet, Zartan and others. The story seemed great, the action at the time was great. I loved it when I was 6, 7, and 8. Sadly that was then this is now. GI-Joe is another show that doesn't age well with time, like Voltron and the A Team. First the animation just doesn't hold up. The story is still ok, but what really gets me is the action. You have these very well trained and no one gets killed. In some shows you have over one hundred men shooting at each other and no one gets killed or really injured. Come on this is war. I was only 6, but I knew what war was seeing it on the news. My uncle fought and died in vietnam, both my grandfathers fought in World War 2. At the time I was also watching Transformers, Voltron, Robotech, and Moblie Suit Gundam. So GI Joe has no excuse.moreless
  • Hahahahahhahahahahahhah

    I'm just kidding, I just love those GI Joe PSA's on ebaumsworld. You know, the dubbed ones. Freakin' hilarious. Favorites are: Ice, Porkchop sandwiches, the computer guy, the "mememem" guy, motorcycle guy, indian !, what am I saying, each and every one is hilarious, but I have to say the BEST one is either Ice...or that short little one where the kid falls off the cliff!! Hahahahahahahah!! It's like 5 seconds long but the last frame is his terrified face! Hahaha! You have to go to ebaumsworld and look it up. You will be crying so hard. OH OH! Don't forget the one with the robot and the fire where the robot kills the two kids!moreless
  • Funny yet Mine-less

    G.I. Joe Replaced Battle B-Daman (Better & funnier) on G4's Action Blast & Why did it replaced B-Daman?

    I mean if you want a classic to return why not "Super Mario Brother's Super Show" or "Case Closed"

    plus What happend to GOOD shows. Show like Abenobashi Shopping Arcade, Cormatie High-School, Battle B-Baman, are Colorful, all of those. Good bye G4, we hardley evre knew ya!
