Lady Razz says that Mera has some relation to her (her daughter?), IIRC, but I'd have to go back and watch it again.


Stolen from the Steven thread.





She is pretty great!

I feel that the most important question about the show is who is the best princess and why is it Scorpia?

In many species of Lizard the females are bigger than the males, since that Lizard person in in Catra's squad is the bigger than the other ones in the horde, it's probably female. Also Hordak's imp is cosplaying as Bakugo.

No no, I meant that he was very obviously a gay pirate.

While I feel it would be very progressive for them to include a non-heterosexual character in this show, having them be the only one would be a touch odd, perhaps this can be rectified in season 2.

SUPERMAN'S GAL PAL posted:

Binged the entire show tonight with my sister who is a decade younger. Followed up by showing her Flowers for Hordak, a later episode from the original series and easily one of the best. There are multiple elements from that single episode that appear to be huge inspirations for the whole season, the biggest being Shadow Weaver using a “dark ruby” to destroy the Whispering Woods. Frankly based on that alone any fascist whining about ess-jay-dubbayahs “ruining” the original show have not watched or studied the show, at all, period.

There are a couple nods and deep cuts in there, like when Razz mentions Loo-Kee and his face shows up on a folding fan, or early in the prom episode the Star Sisters are mentioned, three minor characters that were shown off for the toy line but never produced.

While it’s very subtle I feel like there’s a distant Jack Kirby Forth World feel to the show, especially with how Adora and Catra are forced to confront their relationship. In another world we’d have the same beginnings but with Scott Free and Kalibak, or Big Barda and Lashina.

I just watched Flowers For Hordak and the skeleton's have ruined the show with their dark and gritty reboot which over focuses on realism compared to the original.

I'm not going to say no to a 1930's noire episode where Scorpia wears a suit and fires a tommy gun while standing up in a convertible while Catra drives it wearing a fedora and shades.

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.

Just because two ladies really like each other as roommates, buy a house, live together for 40+ years and adopt kids; sometimes that's just about keeping good company while you're looking for Mr. Right and totally not gay.

Anecdotes are not data, but this was my experience as well. My friend legitimately holds the original She-Ra's design as some kind of feminine ideal, so she never came around to new-She-Ras's look. But she fell in love hard with the other princesses. Especially Glimmer ("you don't ever see girls with her body on shows").

She also went hard for Netossa and Spinerrella and was angry we didn't see more of them.

I'm not sure why this is the show a certain class of people have chosen as their hill to die on, but there you go.

Someone put up an hour and half video about how much they hate they show, but in the first minute they say they only watched ten minutes of the first episode.

Open Source Idiom posted:

Fairly high I'd imagine. You know how they say cartoons affect people so strongly because they bypass certain incredulous parts of the brain? Which means that people are more likely to cry at a sad cartoon than at a human being's simulation (or genuine expression) of pain/anguish/despair? I reckon that's the same thing going on here, and that the rage these idiots feel is partly affected by the way cartoons can just get under their skins in a way that Ghost Busters or Rey or Fish loving Mooney could not.

Speaking of...

My girlfriend loves these cartoon feel good shows and I can stand to watch most of them, but new she-ra is aggressively bad.

Has there been any scuttlebutt about the possibility of a Horde Prime, like there was in the original series? I think it'd be interesting if it turns out that Etheria is just one (albeit important) colony among lots of others, and that Hordak is Horde Prime's brother, and that Horde Prime ordered Hordak to take care of the Rebellion on Etheria because he needed his most powerful general overseeing the defense against the insurgency. At some point, Horde Prime will send his son, Prince Zed, to Hordak, so that Hordak can do the whole feudal lord thing where you take in the royal nephew and show him how to be a man and stuff, etc, but then Prince Zed just totally loving defects to the Rebellion because he's the gayest one of all

I'm more concerned about them being trapped in the Despondos dimension. I want to know more about why Mara did that.

I'm actually sort of glad that the initial backlash was so swift and vehement, because now She-Ra will not fall prey to the cancer that metastasized in the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic fandom, where all the toxic cis-het dudes got in on the ground floor and royally hosed up the fandom with pony porn and gangstalking voice actors; because post-Gamergate ~discourse~ now demands that angry internet men immediately declare their enmity towards any media property that even tangentially involves people who are not horribly irredeemable people, nobody with bad intent is going to touch the She-Ra fandom with a ten foot pole, leaving it a perfect and unsullied fully automated luxury gay space communist utopia.

You're gonna be slightly disappointed - the ECCC panel Noelle was on for She-Ra confirmed this upcoming season only has 7 episodes. 52 episodes total is still accurate but it's gonna be broken up into more seasons, presumably because Netflix is loving weird.

As a fan of Steven Universe, I appreciate the releasing of these new episodes at such a break neck speed.
