Hay Today we got She-Ra and the Princesses of Power its SUCH a good show With an Original Ideas into the Mythology of She-Ra her self.
"Red Alert Spoiler Warning"
As I watching the Show I notice some Easter Eggs in it that's Both part of Original She-Ra and The Masters of the Universe 2002 Series. First Easter Egg I saw was from the Beginning when they enter the Temple of the First Once when Adora Glimmer and Bow approach the Door Adora was able to Read the first once Language and the Password "Eternia" in the 4th EP we See Kowl Doll in Glimmers Room. The connection I See is Adora her self and the Sword of Protection its Almost the Same Desgine as the Sword of Power the Only Different the Bottom is more Mystic and has a Crystal and also as Adora becomes She-Ra The Sword Doubles much like Adams Sword of Power in the 2002 Reboot This is why I think the Two are actually connected is some way. Who knows what Season 2 might bring for She-RA and we may actually see HE-MAN him self in second Season that would be cool or at least mentioned

    I'll stick to the original 80's series. I dont care for reboots.

    Never better than the originals, most of the time, and most animation for modern day shows are sooooo........minimum.

    It's like "Let's make the animation as BASIC as possible!". Never understood that mentality.

    I discovered it today on Netflix. The amimation itself looks super generic, it is indistinguishable from the next four animated shows you select on Netflix. The characters all look so unappealing. Plus it is hard to be in competition with the original shows that certainly lack some coherent storytelling, but are full of charme and late 70s / early 80s power ballads 😁

    The original show was done as cheaply as possible. It was, after all, basically a series of half-hour commercials for a toy line, and its success was judged not by ratings, but by how well the toys sold.

    Haven't actually watched the reboot show, but I did see a video of the transformation process on YouTube, and was impressed - the animation is much more fluid, and the outline during the process shows that her "powered up" form is a good four inches taller than her normal form, as well as being more muscular. You're no longer left wondering how a simple change of clothes, without even so much as a domino mask, is supposed to hide her original identity.

    And all the characters looked the same so they only needed to tool one basic body mould and just add different heads.

    My problem with She-ra is that she looks too androgynous.

    Have only seen bits and pieces of the new show - looks okay to me.

    However what I will say is that I refuse to view the original series through rose-tinted spectacles - and I was there when these were new. The music notwithstanding, I'm sorry, nostalgia doesn't cut it here; the original He-Man and She-Ra just weren't that good.

    This!

    I recall watching these in my youth, when they were new, and not being overly impressed and when I view them now, on YouTube, I can't help but think they're actually pretty terrible - the show was made so cheaply that almost every other scene was reused/repeated. And there was almost no action in it - both He-Man and She-Ra carried swords, but they almost never used them outside their (again reused) transformation sequences and what laughably passed as a 'fight' usually amounted to our hero throwing someone.

    And the characters had no personality either. He-man = generic hero doing good for good's sake. Skeletor = evil cackling villan who just gets equally generic minions to do his bidding.

    I've only seen a little of this new She-Ra, but as I saw more character development in one episode then I did in the entirety old series. So Rose-tinted spectacles are staying off in this case.
