Still living the dream
Join Date: Jun 2009
I lived and breathed G.I. Joe as a kid, I spent hours every day playing with the toys and watched the show religiously. Fast forward to today and I got the boxed set of DVDs and was so excited to relive my childhood so I sat down to watch them all... I loved that show but honestly I can't watch it now, it is so corny. I wanted to like it again but even nostalgia couldn't make it enjoyable. Sad cause I wanted to enjoy it but I just can't...

It works best if you watch 2 or 3 episodes a day, it's not necessary to have a marathon of episodes, I know from my experience I start to doze off.
And while some may find it hard to enjoy some of the shows cornyness I'm the opposite, I can watch any episode and still find myself remembering lines, humming the background music, etc. I think it stems from the fact that I held on to all my VHS tapes while others have just recently re-discovered the show through DVD.
G.I.Joe and Transformers are two shows that supposedly made just to sell toys but the writers on them came up with rich characters and storylines that for me were pretty deep for a childrens show and still hold up.
I've tried watching other 80's like The Centurions and M.A.S.K. and they are painful to watch because each episode is the same and in this case were obviously made to feature the toys and forget about characterization.

Maybe the DIC series will make it to Netflix some day.

Also notice not a whole lot of concern for decompression sickness. These Joes and Cobra soldiers are STRONG if they can easily go from flying jets to deep sea diving and back to flying in one mission.

I have owned all the Joe and Transformer sunbow cartoons for years, and every so often I'll watch them all over again. Sure there are a few episodes that weren't very good, but for the most part, there are a lot of gems. If any one hasn't watched them since they were a kid, give them a chance again. Nostalgia is a wonderful thing.
