The Flop House Wiki


"In this episode we discuss G.I. Joe: Retaliation, in which the Joes and Cobra enact brutal retaliation against the audience."

Official Show Notes[]

"Despite being one of the more nothing movies we've ever watched, we somehow crap out what we believe to be our longest episode with G.I. Joe: Retaliation. It's a living. Meanwhile, Dan and Elliott explain what 'G.I. Joe' means, and develop President Ziggy, and Stuart reveals he's an evil land developer."

Movie Summary[]


The G.I. Joes are not only fighting their mortal enemy Cobra; they are forced to contend with threats from within the government that jeopardize their very existence.


In the continuing adventures of the G.I. Joe team, Duke, second-in-command Roadblock, and the rest of the Joes face a two-fold threat. Not only is their mortal enemy COBRA rearing its ugly head again, but there is also a threat from within the U.S. government: There might be an impostor in the White House. Meanwhile, Snake Eyes is on a search for inner peace but learns that his nemesis, Storm Shadow, is still alive.

  • ­I have to say this: I'm a nerd about a lot of stupid things, a lot of childish things. But a G.I. Joe nerd is a nerd I cannot respect. Let me just say that.

  • ­Guys, I don't know about you, but I love Jonathan Pryce. There is no way a man with that crazy a haircut would be elected president of the United States.
