/ G.I. Joe: Resolute

My friend Mathieu pointed me to a new mini series of G.I. Joe videos called Resolute. Being a fan who watched the cartoons religiously during the 80s, this series blew me away! This is how G.I. Joe was always meant to be. People actually die! Not that I’m a fan of death or anything, but a show about battle just seems so much more genuine when there’s actually a threat of people getting killed.

Wikipedia describes the series as follows:

G.I. Joe: Resolute is an animated series based on the G.I. Joe franchise. It was written by Warren Ellis, directed by Joaquim Dos Santos, and produced by Sam Register.[1] The series debuted on the web at Adult Swim Video April 18, 2009, with a Content Rating of TV-14-V, and premiered on U.S. cable television on Adult Swim April 26, 2009. Resolute departs from recent depictions of futuristic technology, adopting a more realistic aesthetic.[2] The series has been described as a more “mature” take on the franchise.[3]

I’ve embeded the whole mini series below, so enjoy!
