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. 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. The series has been described as a more “mature” take on the franchise.
I’ve embeded the whole mini series below, so enjoy!
