oh but seriously I posted:

got obsessed with the concept of skeletor and so i watched this very gay children's show. p. good, favourite moment was the <1 second shot of the imp kicking hodark in the shin and expressing "ffs man, don't be a dick" in a worldless shriek

The best part was that Hordak 100% got the wordless shriek message :allears:

Very pumped for the new season, plus it looks like there will be more swift wind so that's awesome. My daughter loves the show. Most of our friends with kids aren't white and she goes to a korean daycare so there is very little white representation in her life (this will obviously change when she gets.older) so she freaked out when she saw Adora
She kept pointing at Adora and then at herself and saying "me!" It was a powerful case for inclusion in.media.

I thought they were all already made up until episode 50 or something? So technically this schedule is pretty slow.

Gotta admit I have a few complaints mostly with the tone, which I think has been mentioned; it's not clear how seriously we're supposed to take the threat of the Horde and how much peril people are really in day to day. That the Horde is shown with clearly dysfunctional and incompetent leadership at least explains a lot. It might be one of those things they can settle on later, at least. I feel a bit spoiled by Avatar.

Other thing is that a lot of characters outside the Horde and the Best Friend Squad, mostly the other princesses, are pretty underdeveloped. And in the case of the ice princess at least, inconsistent, it's a little hard to square her original appearance with how she came back and was suddenly Ice Toph.

I suppose they can probably fix both of those later on if they can pick a tone and stick with it, and give the other characters enough focus to develop a bit more. Comes off as a bit too much like throwing in extra characters to make sure their toys are advertised, but the toyline might not even be a thing yet.

Ah, gotta love perfectly cromulent advice given creepily. If anyone else had said "You've got the potential to be greater than your parents, but you're not them and you need to take the path that suits you" it would have been just fine.

I mean, it's pretty well established that Shadow Weaver has absolutely no concept of healthy relationships, given, y'know, Adora and Catra. She does slightly better with Glimmer because she actually has a similar enough skillset that Shadow Weaver can give direct advice and tutelage with, but she still only really knows 'creepy manipulative supervillain' mode.

I get the impression that Shadow Weaver is a character who is solely on her side. So long as it benefits her more to remain within the Alliance--and it does, since her bridge with the Horde has been fairly burned and she is being given the chance to play vizier from a lack of options--I think she will.

I was gonna say pretty much that, Shadow Weaver is on Shadow Weaver's side. It depends on what Angella figures what to do with her; indefinite imprisonment might honestly be the best option presuming she doesn't do executions, since releasing or banishing her would probably bite them in the butt in the long run. And you'd think a Catra's Horde would be just as hostile to her as Hordak's, but say it with me everybody...

They're written, and voices recorded, until episode 52. That's the end of the order and probably the show. They're releasing them as they finish the animation.

Shadow Weaver is a definite "the ends justify the means", but while we're drat sure what the means are, we have only hints at what her ends truly are.

She's damned good at putting the viewer through the ropes and it's kind of my favorite sort of antagonist, the kind you need to keep close while knowing it will hurt you in the process.

My thoughts on the three episodes I’ve watched so far, which were the last three:

- Entrapta :3:
- Jumanji Micah
- Hordak crying when he found out Catra played him hurt me
- Double Trouble killing it in those heels
- Prime looks like Hordak hosed the twins from Matrix Reloaded
- seriously why is his face like that
-While I acknowledge she is a well-written and complex character GOD I HATE CATRA

Thank goodness I have tonight off because I marathoned all of s4. This series just has such well writen and compelling characters. No one is wholly good or evil.

Except Scorpia.

Also I want a real Spinnerella/Netossa kiss, Dreamworks you cowards!
