Remember G.I. Joe: Resolute? The awesome, R-rated G.I. Joe cartoon written by Warren Ellis, featuring copious deaths that Hasbro has been talking about forever? No? Then watch this:
Yes. G.I. Joe: Resolute. Pretty much the awesomest thing ever. The eagle-eyed kids of The Terrordrome spotted Resolute on Adult Swim’s schedule for April 25th at midnight. Also, it looks like AS is going to run the entirety of Resolute, as it’ll be on for an hour and a half. That meshes with the hour of content we’ve heard Resolute was going to be, plus commercials.
Make sure you mark your calendars. Resolute might be the only thing keeping some of you hardcore Joe fans from committing suicide when the live-action movie comes out. You probably don’t want to miss it.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
