the ending I would say was intentional. It was not meant to be a finale. IT accomplished what it accomplished. The shooting was fine. people tend to forget Duke did get shot.

When compared to the original cartoon, this was on par, if not better in many, MANY ways. In the original cartoon though, the characters were established over the course of the original 5 episode arcs (MASS, REVENGE, and PYRAMID), which allowed more time to get their cornball personalities going.
I totally agree with you on Destro. The voice actor seemed like he was headed in the right direction: Original voice mixed with Sean Connery's Scottish brogue. The thing is he had very little dialogue, and spent the time hunched over with a gun in his hand making him look like he was only a metal-headed thug.
Would have liked some kind of funeral for Bazooka, or something at the end to make it feel like more of an ending though... Hell, maybe Doc coming over the radio saying:
"Hey everyone, great news! Bazooka just came out of his death-like trance state!"
Funny thing is, my wife, who could give a damn about GI Joe, said the same thing about Destro, Cobra Commander & Zartan. She said that if CC (especially) had more airtime she would have enjoyed it far more.
I still enjoyed it though... I want more, then we can have those fleshed out characters!

9...I absolutely loved it. 10. Would of been CC winning and having Duke & SE's heads mounted on the wall in his office. Sure, it could have been longer. Sure, there could have (should have) been a higher Joe body count. (One joe died people...one joe. get over it) Sure, there is disappointment in there being no future Resolutes. But one can hope. I can hope can't I?

I voted 9. Animation is excellent, a bit anime, but still distinctly american animation which is cool. Some of the voice were good, but others fell sort of flat. Zartan for instance had a definate Aussie accent, but didn't sound as tough as the original imo. I liked Destro's old voice better as well, now it seems as if any time anyone wants a Scottish accent in a toon all the characters end up sounding like Sean Connery. Some more variety would be nice. Storm Shadow was much better however, in that he no longer sounded like a stereotypical Asian, even if he was too much of a whiny bee with an itch. I don't like deaths for just deaths sake, and hated the deaths of Bazooka and Major Blood two characters that I personally really like, but on the other hand it is a more realistic portrayal of war and people die, even those you like, sad as that fact is. Some other critiques I have are I was wondering why all the vipers/cobra troops looked the same minus the red ones who were I guess CG's and where were Hawk and the admiral of the Flagg in the whole thing?
[Shipwreck and Snake Eyes are sneaking around a Cobra base]
Shipwreck: Let's reconnoiter, Snake Eyes, and try not to attract attention. Sure. Who'd notice a wet sailor with a parrot and a silent, masked man with a timber wolf? I think we're in major trouble!

I gave it an 8.
Didn't like some of the voice selections but that really had no influence.
The main things for me were :
The Stormshadow storyline was a bit lame. He killed his uncle for not teaching him a move? That is not the character I remember.
The second thing is all the deaths. DId they really have to kill all of Moscow? Why did Bazooka and Bludd die off camera? Why kill off major characters like Zartan and Stormshadow?
Some of the other things some of the hisstank members mentioned didn't bother me at all. I have a feeling people will like this more than the movie.

Great things about the show:
1. Cobra Commander being such a lunatic - perfect
2. Cobra Troopers looked great
3. Compliments and improves upon original cartoon
4. Lots of characters
5. Left open for future stories!
Bad things about the show
1. No back story on Bludd being a traitor?
2. Although cool, too much back story on SS/SE not relevant to main story
3. Missing some of my favorites (Torpedo, Tripwire, Snow Job, Spirit, and others)
4. Cobra Troopers, Officers, Vipers, and Alley Vipers....how the hell could you tell the difference? Too similar.
Funny mistakes in story:
1. Springfield was huge with a 6 lane main street and there are no civilians anywhere? You really think a place like this could exist without anyone noticing! I was in AWE LOL
2. After Tunnel Rat blew up the Strato-lites...how the hell did Cobra Commander fire his weapon two more times? (1 at the Flagg, 1 at washington/redirected back to springfield). I understand there was a second array being used, bu the strato-lites are what made it capable of being directed anywhere in the world. Dumb editing : - )
3. Storm Shadow continued fighting like a bad ass with both of his inner forearms sliced open....ninja or not man, you'd be done. and wheres the blood?
4. Transport Planes and copters were able to land on the Flagg even though the landing deck had been blown to hell by stormshadow. Crazy : - )

I gave it an 8, and agree with most folks here. I definitely think that too much time was spent on SS/SE, and what's up with SS being such a sissy? They might as well have been using lasers as no Joes seemed to really get hit, and the only one that did, unfortunately didn't kill him (sorry, but Duke was sort of a jerk in this series). I thought the story was good also, but like others, feel that it was rushed at the end. I guess I expected a full-on battle scene where it looks like the good guys aren't going to make it but then something spectacular happens and then they do. This reminded me of the old Joe cartoons where the Joes would get their butts kicked, but then not change a single thing and come back and defeat Cobra.
Overall, though, it was cool and I looked forward to seeing each part up on the web.

I gave it an 8. Didn't dig the Duke/Scarlett relationship and thought that the Alley Vipers should have been more badass. They are elite and can't hit a thing? Other than that I really liked it and hope they can make something more of this. I would like to see the Resolute versions of a few characters that we didn't get to see, and have stories for the ones we saw, but had barely any role in this series.
