Trivia

In "Quest for the Crystals" (#1.2), Skeletor falls into a bottomless pit, filled with water and emerges and says "Some days. Nothing goes rights!" That scene was written as a nod to the 1987 film "Masters of the Universe". In the film, Skeletor fell into a bottomless pit filled with red water beneath Castle Grayskull, after the final battle with He-Man and after the end credits, Skeletor popped his head out of the water and said "I'll be back!!".

Not a bad series
16 August 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The New Adventures of He-Man is not the best of anything to do with He-Man but I didn't think it deplorable either. I watched the series with intrepidation because I remembered disliking it as a child, but as an adult while there are flaws it is not as bad as I remembered. The pilot episode was on the uninspired side and the animation quality is uneven, a lot of the time it is colourful and unique but there are also times where the character designs are jerky and the backgrounds lack life. However, the music is catchy and cool, the action sequences are choreographed well and compel you at least and the transformation sequence was the one I remembered always really liking and that is still the case here. The writing does have some stilted moments but is often funny, intelligent and with a sense of conflict, the story-lines are thought out well and interesting and the characters whether heroes or villains are engaging. The voice acting is very good. All in all, The New Adventures of He-Man is not bad, better than I remembered. It will never be one of my favourite shows but compared to some of the awful animated shows of the past decade or so it is deserving of a better reputation. 7/10 Bethany Cox
