My favorite part of all this is that they don’t even bother to hide Adora’s powers and she uses them just whenever.

Like the common introduction is “This is Adora, she turns into She-Ra sometimes who is a terrifying giantess” and the people they meet just roll with it.

Didn't Mermistra blush when looking at she'ra pretty hard? Also the "this lady can turn into a 8' tall amazon with a sword and I want her on my team."

Catra is the one that gets me because of how openly transparent it is. Between sleeping at Adora’s feet, showing up to the prom in drag, being the only person in the episode to use the word “love” (talking about Entrapta), and her dances with Adora, they couldn’t make it more obvious if they used a big gay foghorn.

Entrapta seems to me like the type to go "hey guys, what's up" then just keep on hacking like nothing happened when Adora & co have to go back to the the Fright Zone.

Entrapta only cares about tech.
Lead with “we found this new First Ones tech deposit in XYZ” and she’ll follow you out the door without a second thought.

I''m a 34-year-old man who watched this because of liking He-Man as a kid, and I loved it. I would be absolutely okay if the She-ra team made a MOTU cartoon for Netflix, if they can get the green light to do so. That movie has been in development hell for years, let it go.


....also make Orko just be Taako from The Adventure Zone, complete with Justin McElroy voicing him (or Griffin)

I am a 38 year old man, and watching it has turned me gay. Everything I do now is fabulous. Thank you, Dreamworks.

Finished the series. After getting second-bested by Adora AGAIN, Catra’s isn’t coming back. Her sole goal now is Hoardak’s big chair.

Also don’t listen to online comments on shows you goobers! These are the same idiots that rage-quit Doctor Who because Thirteen is a ~female~.

God this show fuckin owns.

I'm kind of in love with how they handle themes of abuse and manipulation, and escaping abusive home lives, and the differences between children who escape vs. those who stay behind (or get left behind) and how they adapt. They do an amazing (and tragically accurate) job of depicting those themes, especially how the abusive parent will always have a favorite/golden child that is used as an emotional cudgel against the others.

Shadow Weaver makes my skin crawl and seeing Catra fight back against her in the end while saying "this is what you trained me for" really hit home for me and made her my favorite character.

This show didn't turn me gay because I was never straight :v:

The art is perfectly fine. Strangely I don't really care much for the Catra and Adora conflict, because we all know Catra isn't in a place where she is going to do any good or learn. Not this season anyway.

Scorpia though will 100 percent turn against Hordak at some point. She is just too great not to.

Also I want to see more of her skills of an artist. She makes drawing fun!

Eh I feel like that's a bit harsh. The Catra, Shadoweaver and Adora thing is great and would be even if Catra and Adora weren't hyper gay.

I also like Glimmer a lot more than most seem to. She has a good solid arc. It'd still be a pretty good cartoon even if it wasn't gayer than a tree full of monkeys.

Is Adora, though? I kept getting the vibe that one of their huge issues is that Catra fell in love and Adora was an oblivious friend.

Right panel’s great, I don’t know what they’re looking on in horror about but if it means more Scorpia/Entrapta interactions then hell yeah

I’m interested in how Catra is going to treat Entrapta next season. Right now she’s the new crush but Entrapta is married to SCIENCE and it seems like a rebound relationship anyway

Also their first time on screen together at princess prom and Catra jokingly asking Adora "Is this what love feels like?" Catra's doing things to get under Adora's skin, but she's also doing it there by just being friendly with someone who's getting along with her pretty easily.

On that note the Catra/Scorpia outfit montage in that episode is one of my favorite scenes too.

Really on the whole part of my issue with the early part of the season was not finding most of the good guys quite as interesting as I later found Catra and her trio.

Reminds me of Avatar:TLA where in season 1 it was the stuff regarding Zuko that really got my interest in the series.

Catra rocked that tux so hard it was ridiculous.

Nimona had a pretty nuanced view of being designated good guys or bad guys and being labelled as a monster for reasons you never had a choice over. But this is a cartoon for kids so they'll prolly just Zuko Catra and all at some point when Hordak decides to go for being the biggest baddest bad against everybody.

Just watched the whole thing since season 2 is soonish and yeah it was pretty alright. Could be gayer though.

I love everything about this show. I love Scorpia crushing over Catra while she’s obsessing over her ex. I love the pathos I feel for Catra from growing up in a household with an abusive bpd mother and that she’s so complex a character I like her as much as the good guys if not more. I love Entrapta bc Entrapta.

How did they make a goofy kids cartoon from the 80s into this? And after this and Voltron, how the gently caress do we get Dreamworks/Netflix to reboot Tranzor Z for the Chokes childhood hat trick?

Entrapta remains the fuckin best.

Heroes need to embrace the cold hard sciences and lure her back over... though that's gonna be tough considering what Hordak has to offer.

my favorite part of the season is still her monkeybarring around a metal bridge with her hair over an insanely deep drop while yelling about not knowing what she's doing

it's great because she's very clearly amoral and following the tech and everyone else on the good guys' side think she's misguided or brainwashed.

Still has the problem where despite how adorable the best friends trio is the villains are 100% more interesting and I kiiiinda just want a Fright Zone show that happens to involve Princesses of Power fuckin their stuff up, but now that we're past season 1's 'we have to introduce everyone and have Adora's journey and all that jazz' stuff the story is really able to stretch its legs.

It also bothers me that you never see him giving orders to other Force Captains. Like there’s gotta be more than two but you don’t even see him giving orders to a bunch of nameless ones along with Catra and Scorpia.

I think it’s been mentioned before but this show is good at personal interactions but not so good at making it seem like the Horde is enormous and an actual threat.

Psst.

Outside of Shadow Weaver the Horde is a clown show run by a guy who’s only scary because he has a bunch of rickety tech from his home world hanging around.

If he didn’t have access to an instant win lever Scorpia would eventually crash through a wall koolaid man style and kick the poo poo out of him for hurting her wildcat. :killdozer:

She’s an abused product of her environment that’s colossally in over her head and will ultimately be saved by the love of a good insectoid :hai:
