* Since using ATM machine and credit cards would make it easier to track the Joes, they probably just use bills. So where did they get all that money from?

* Where did the Joes get all their money to survive for so long? Wouldn't the authorities had frozen all their bank accounts and canceled their credit cards since the early part of the series?

** Because tracking down 'the prototype' (AKA Ripcord) was a motivation for COBRA to step up their pursuit of the Joes, as well as to shake up the dynamic of the team a little.

*** Teaser trailer for [[GIJoeRetaliation Retaliation]] just came out. Looks like the premise is similar to Renegades. The Joes are on the run.

* So they made Lady Jaye a Latina. Now, I could care less about a character's race (especially if the change is of a [[TheSpectacularSpiderMan minor]] [[Series/{{Smallville}} character]]), and I know that "too many whities" can make a show stale and not seem inclusive. Yet when they take a main character from the original cartoon and change her race entirely, it just seems like a [[ExecutiveMeddling cheap attempt]] to make it look like they're globally sensitive (see ''Rise Of Cobra''). I understand how it can be a positive influence on a young viewer who sees a bit of him/herself in the character, when so many heroes are portrayed as white...I get that. Yet if they really wanted a fiery Latina on the show, wouldn't it have been more poignant to make an ORIGINAL character that was entertaining and interesting in her own right that happened to have that heritage, rather than just altering a pre-existing one? (I'll grant, there could be a rights issue I don't know about.) It isn't a single aspect that ruins the entire show for me. Heck, she may even grow on me over time with her accent and improper grammar. Right now, though, it just seems...unnecessary.

*** That's basically giving in to their demands while the whole message is that a writer (or anyone in the creative arts) shouldn't be restricted to telling stories solely about their ethnicity. It's kind of like lambasting QuentinTarantino for making ''Film/JackieBrown'' or ''Film/KillBill'' because he's telling stories about cultures he is not a part of.

* Why is TheHub putting this show "on hiatus" due to a Live Action Movie, despite being perfectly fine having TransformersPrime air ''during'' Transformers: Dark of the Moon's blockbuster summer? [[TemptingFate Don't tell me the 2012 movie has "Renegades" somewhere in its title?]]
