how are these screens in HD if the show is on AS? I don't have a HD version of Cartoon Network and I live in Atlanta!

It’s really hard to take issue with G.I. Joe Resolute when comparing it to previous incarnations of G.I. Joe—it is by far the best version of G.I. Joe, comic book, video, game, live action movie, or animated feature. Nothing else comes close.
I appreciate what Mr. Hama has done for G.I. Joe fans around the globe, but I think he allowed himself to become too attached to the characters, thus hindering the overall development of characters and story. Commission Warren Ellis (a non-fan) to write a show was the best thing Hasbro ever did for us fans. No fan would have had the balls to kill off Bazooka or Major Bludd. No, sir. We would have seen Chuckles on the table and Crystal Ball lying in front of Lincoln. And what about his offing Storm Shadow and Zartan?
My biggest gripe, though I don’t know if it’s really Mr. Ellis fault at all, are the accents given Storm Shadow and the Hard Master. Those aren’t Japanese accents at all. I don’t speak Chinese, so I can’t say this with certainty, but they sounded like Chinese speakers of English—they reminded me of terrible kung fu dubs.
Japanese speakers of English have difficulties with V/B, TH, W, and L/R sounds. Plurals and articles are also killers for Japanese speakers of English. Vowels in the Japanese language only have one sound, which usually always results in Japanese speakers of English pronouncing words and names in quite differently from native speakers of English. Japanese speakers also tend to add unnecessary vowels to words, as their own language is a combination of consonants and vowels; consonants cannot function without vowels in the Japanese language. There are other areas that cause trouble, but the ones listed above are the most common. I bring this up only because, Mr. Ellis (or the voice actors) felt the need to make them speak English as though it wasn’t their native tongue—don’t half ass it; go all out!
I like episodes 5 and 8, but its hard for me to enjoy them as much as I would like due to the poor voice work. Storm Shadow and his uncle try so hard to sound Japanese, but in the end they sound anything but :( It’s too bad they couldn’t have spoken only Japanese—we can all read and some of us can understand Japanese. This show was made for the older fans anyway, so what’s wrong with subtitles?
The other gripe I have, though it’s not that big of a problem really, was how death in combat became less of an issue toward the end of the Adult-Swim run. The lack of blood during the ninja and Snake-Eye's breaking a Japanese sword with his HANDS *really?* made the scene a bit unbelievable. I'm still waiting for an American show to portray ninjas as extremely skilled combatants, and not supernatural beings. There is no ninja magic!
Here’s hoping to a kick @$$ finale. I hope Cobra Commander survives it all, as I don’t care for Serpentor one bit…

Watch the premiere of "G.I. Joe: Resolute" Saturday, April 25 at midnight on Adult Swim."
Is what it reads on Adult Swims page just below the first 10 clips.
I'm a bit confused about all this, as it midnight, 12:00am, isn't Saturday, but Sunday.
