On the planet Etheria, Adora is an up and coming soldier for the Horde eager to defend her home from the menace of the Princesses she has been taught all her life to fear. Everything changes when a chance encounter with the mystic Sword of Protection in the Whispering Woods calls to her. Discovering to her horror the true evil of the Horde, Adora defects to the Rebellion as its foretold champion, She-Ra Princess of Power. Now, Adora and her new friends must rebuild the shattered Princess Alliance to defeat the Evil Horde. Meanwhile, Adora's former best friend in the Horde, Catra, is tasked to reclaim Adora, but her own feelings of jealousy, betrayal, and vindictive ambition lead her down a path darker still set by Lord Hordak that will hold all of Etheria in the balance.Written by

Giving it a generous 8 due to certain elements of the writing, particularly the Adora-Catra dynamic. I enjoyed it and look forward to the next season.
Worth mentioning that this show needs to change it's target audience. The kid/teen audience they're aiming at does not permit them to really portray this conflict and the effects it has on relationships. I get that it tried to be PC, but they shouldn't let that drive their demographic away from the people who really wanna watch it - young adults. It's not a kids show, and they shouldn't try to make it one.
They can change this since it's still early, but if they pidgeonhole themselves into this audience, they will stuggle to tell the story they really should tell.
