Flipshot, Teenage girl Drissi and her brother Caz and Darius, head of the galactic council. He-Man sets out to defend Primus from Skeletor and the mutants. Written by
Deplorable. Ridiculous. Not even sub-standard fun. The anime style is annoying. The queen of Eternia has blue hair? Why is Prince Adam dressed like a shepherd? And as Prince Adam- the voice is SO gay. The lisps are unmistakable. No, being gay is not the problem. I'm gay but prefer Prince Adam/He-Man to be masculine, bold and strong. He is suppose to be the almighty defender after all. And Skeletor- yelch. NOT scary, not frightening. Why is his face green? And why did they have to change the chant that turns Adam into He-Man? "By the power of Eternia"? Um...it's "By the power of Grayskull" people!! You cannot make a Batman movie or cartoon and take him out of Gotham. Superman will always be in Metropolis. You CANNOT go changing a characters legacy just because you want to. BAD producers.
Other reviews on the net have said the show can stand on its own. Um...NO it cannot. It's a pathetic attempt to breath new life into a classic story that was in no need of CPR. Guess the old saying is true- if it ain't broke, don't fix it. For me this will be like the film Halloween 3. I will forget it ever happened.
BAD producers!!! Shame!!!
