Iím hoping the reboot has a kickass theme song like Warriors as well:

https://youtube.com/watch?v=m9oX8lPNP0M

I think that might be the only theme in the franchise with actual lyrics as well (aside from I Have The Power that is).

Did he actually tweet this poo poo out explicitly, too? Because I'm wondering about all those tears that showed up on my Youtube feed about loving He-Man, and they keep coming. Main reason I'm perusing this thread to begin with. Is the peanut gallery ignoring specific context again?

The key shared factor about about all these YouTube crybabies who scream about this kind of poo poo is that they don't actually know how television and movie production actually works. Like to a comical degree. Especially when it comes to animation.

Also these people are generally just really stupid and ignorant. Normal people all unanimously really seem to like this show.

This was after that scene, when literally nobody was attacking her castle because there was nothing there to steal and no armies left.

It was "oh what if the guy we just defeated uh wants to go check if there's anything left in Sorceress's basement."

What does that matter? Teela wanted him to go there because "what if the guy we just defeated wants to attack another magical bastion just like he's attacked other places with extant magic; which he has cause to do because he's literally a zealot about technology and is attacking any magic left to prove the superiority of technology"; and guess what? He did. When they arrive at Greyskull the same guy is attacking it with a big army, and had been doing so for some time according to Man-at-Arms. So the fear was completely reasonable, and having someone else there to help protect that magical bastion is not "babysitting". What is the actual difference between having Man-at-Arms there off screen for several episodes and having him there off screen for several episodes minus one scene where his presence felt awkward and after which he leaves for the same purpose anyway?

On the other hand, I think inserting Man-at-Arms in that scene is lovely writing, and having him doing something off-screen that pays off later is simple foreshadowing.

Of course it's fine to acknowledge if that's true, but as I said, I don't think it is because I don't think that scene effectively does the thing people have said it's there for and I don't think that scene adds anything of note. I think it's poo poo not because it's doing a thing I disagree with, but because it's doing a thing I don't think is necessary and doing it badly to boot.

No but Teela and Lyn's action figures where made using the same mold. Effectively they where variants of the same action figure. They did the same thing with Merman and Stinkor.

There's a browser extension called BlockTube for Firefox and Chrome, and a similar one for Opera too. Install it and you can use the "..." menu that normally lets you report videos to either block individual videos or even whole channels from ever showing up anywhere on your browser again. Just search He-Man and use it to calibrate your block list. That's about the only effective way to do it on PC. Sadly nothing helps for mobile browsing though.

Luckily a lot of these same channels get mad over everything pop-culture related so I whacked all of them years ago when they started screaming about The Last Jedi and have never had to deal with them directly since.

You can just choose "Don't Recommend Channel" from the "..." menu beside a video on YouTube. At least on mobile. I believe the "Not interested" option on PC does the same thing. I had one video for Clownfish pop up a few days ago, clicked "Don't Recommend Channel" and haven't gotten anything since. I'm pretty sure I've selected it for other channels over the years and never seen any of them again either, so it seems pretty comprehensive from my experience with it.

There's also a small but spirited effort to talk about the 'controversy.'

I would like to see a proper peer review of the Critical Drinkerís analytical process, for example what specifically is his exact blood alcohol content while he is expressing his critical thoughts on modern popular media? How can I trust the word of a man who posits to be a perpetual drunkard if it turns out he is filming all of his content stone-cold sober? Talk about a bait and switch.

I find it quite amazing that people are thinking there is some lesbian nature between a mother and daughter.

If you know anything about He-Man Teela being the Sorceress daughter is rather common. In other words people are causing outrage for outrage sakes.

Also it's patently clear if you watch the show, this one I mean, that Teela is not at all fond the Sorceress and resents her for being yet another person who'd kept a fuckton of secrets from her her whole life and she probably won't react well if/when the other shoe drops and she finally learns Sorceress is her mother. Because she's like 20 years old now and her mom has seen her on like a daily basis and had all the time in the world to let her know and just kind of... didn't. That's why Duncan claps his mouth shut the first time he tries to tell her because he realizes "Oh, poo poo, this probably won't end well."

Also Teela has much stronger lesbian energy with Andra anyway :v:

For what it's worth, before this new Ressurection series, the most cooler MOTU stories were on the packages of the MOTU Classics figurines. Someone from a He-Man forum made a "easy"-reading timeline. And yeah, it's some cool stuff about all the Masters of the universe, and how they managed to make something consistent with all the characters.

In the Beginning

Before the beginning of time the Gods of the multiverse convene in the Hall of Power to create the Five Dimensions Ė the Dimensions of Eternia, Despondos and Infinita, the Timeless Dimension of Trolla and the Nameless Dimension
After the completion of creation the Gods cast their aura - the Power of the Universe - across the universe as a great wave of raw creation power, giving rise to all forms of life and intelligence.
Before they leave the universe the Gods hide their magic in the form of a star Ė the Star Seed Ė deep within the core of a small planet at the center of the Dimension of Eternia Ė the planet Eternia
The immortal four-armed giant Procrustus is tasked to guard the Star Seed and the Godsí Magic within Eterniaís core
Over millenia the Godsí Magic slowly seeps out, blessing many wise Eternian wizards with the power and wisdom to control and tap into these great magic energies for both good and evil
The Overlords of Trolla on the other hand start to harness the Aura of the Gods also known as the Power of the Universe
The Overlords of Trolla use the Power of the Universe to become immortal and vow to maintain neutrality in all Five Dimensions
Sensing how dark the Dimension of Despondos is, the Overlords of Trolla use the Power of the Universe to create a being of formless light Ė Light Hope
The Overlords of Trolla send the being of light to Despondos to bring hope to those trapped there
The being of light settles on the Planet Etheria, turning the small planet into a lush paradise and protecting it with magic against an otherwise dark dimension
The Unnamed One tries to steal the Power of the Universe
The Overlords of Trolla therfore hide and contain the Power of the Universe inside of a great Sword, the Sword of He, after the Trollan word for Power.

A hybrid of three cold-blooded alien races, the Snake Men are spliced together and bred by the Unnamed One to serve as loyal foot soldiers in his ever-growing army.

For what it's worth, before this new Ressurection series, the most cooler MOTU stories were on the packages of the MOTU Classics figurines. Someone from a He-Man forum made a "easy"-reading timeline.

Kind of wish Catraís ability to turn into a panther was kept for SPoP honestly.

Cowl, Broom and Madam Razz all felt like they were vying for the space Orko had on He-Man, maybe a little for Cringer's spot too seeing as Swift-Wind couldn't talk in normal horse form. That wasn't so much needed on the new show.

I do enjoy the fact that they kinda-sorta touched on the fact that Cringer, a *sentient being* is never given a choice as to whether he wants to become Battle Cat. They *clearly* have Flash Gordon-style rocket bikes in this show.

They covered it nicely in SPoP insofar as Swift Wind *stayed* Swift Wind, wings and all. And everyone knows Adora is She-Ra...when the sword *lets* her be She-Ra.

I forget, does SPoP ever really go into what Grayskull actually is in the context of that series (since that version is largely divorced from the He-Man side of things) or does it just keep the transformation call and not really bring much attention to it otherwise?

That makes sense, though Iím not sure why the sword would be activated by the name of Maraís rebel group since in this universe it was created by the First Ones.

I forget, did Mara also say ďFor the honor of GrayskullĒ when she transformed into She-Ra in the past as well?

But otherwise yeah, her changing the activation code for the sword into something that honors the memory of her comrades would make sense considering what Mara ultimately chooses to do with that power.

My mother is a fish.
Finally watched Revaluation. Its good. The first episode nails the feeling of dumping out a toy chest and waging epic battels with your action figures. The voice cast is a murders row well cast fan favorites. Casting Sarah Michelle Gellar was deliberate and what Princesses of Power hit a feed back loop with magic school girl anime, Revelation hit a similar loop with chosen one narratives. Other thoughts, who ever was directing Tony Todd asked for Candy Man, cool, and I would like series about king Greyskull fighting a two front war against King Hiss and Horde Prime, Dennis Haysbert was really good and I liked the scenes with him.

edit: Frank Langella is still the best Skelator

I really hope King Greyskull and the other heroes of Preternia show up again in Part 2. I need more Dennis Haysbert in my life.

Also maybe it's just me but it seems like in the intervening week since its release the majority of the white hot hatred for the show online has kind of burned itself out and given way to people who actually really like the show gushing about it. Which, if I'm not mistaken was basically what happened with She-Ra too, wasn't it?

Yeah, that small edit war on Wikipedia over MotU:R to talk about the "controversy" which included the amazing phrase 'establishment of feminism' is now over, it having been scrubbed and instead has reviews from places like the AV Club and Daily Beast and not, you know, the Quartering and the Critical Drinker. They also talk about the review-bombing. I'm sure we'll get more 'content' over it but it's mostly a Dennis Nedry "See, nobody cares" situation now.

Today I saw that He-Man cartoon without a lot of nostalgia for the old stuff.
Things I liked: Some character designs, the animation, some musical scores.
The plot just felt incredible trite and had way to much pathos. Nothing I really liked there.
She-Ra was way better, since that one at least had something to say.

Imagine trying to say 'because somebody called the Critical Drinker said it was bad!'

I like how the wikipedia editors are really merciless with emphasizing just how small and insignificant the creators and audience of rage-bait rumor mill youtube clickbait channels are.

They really are too - in spite of them flooding youtube with rage-bait vids attacking the series and Kevin Smith, most people enjoy the show. The people raging on youtube and in comments sections about this series are incredibly itty bitty.

Best-case scenario in part 2 of the series is there is nothing for the antiwoke ragebait youtubers to really go after with Prince Adam / He-man getting more screentime, so the fake ginned up 'controversy' just kinda peters off and gets forgotten.

But there will probably be some clever Kevin Smith twist that sends them into a frenzy.

Or they'll just make something up to be mad about. Who cares with these fuckin psychos.
