Amazing show! Wonderful characters! Awesome animation! Wonderful homage to past classics!
She-Ra and the Princesses of Power captured my heart. I was told about this show by a young girl who I teach martial arts. It certainly started out as a kids show, but I did like the "Last Airbender" so I kept watching and was soon hooked. The complexity of the characters and their diversity was a real joy. The search for the meaning of life and love by all the characters is amazingly present in this show. I loved the subtle and not so subtle references to other SciFi/Fantasy classics, and even some film noir. Kids will not know where that stuff came from, but it adds a lot for older viewers. The original Star Trek attempted to address controversial issues episode by episode, but She-Ra creates a real world as a single long story with continuity across the five seasons that maybe does an even better job of showing how we can achieve a better society thorough love and tolerance. As a married man in his 60's and father of a boy and girl, I am recommending this as my favorite show this year to everyone I know. Also, who could resist a cool girl with a sword!
