Cry Havoc Part 2

He-Man and The Masters of The Universe
S01E10

This one wasn't as exciting as the last episode but it was a good ending to a great 1st season.

The chase for the havoc staff was good. Skeletor showing the Dark Masters who is boss was good. I like him putting them in their place. i like that Randor softened up on his stance against the power of Grayskull. I would have liked a hug between Adam & Krass.

The fact that He-Man's sword can be broken is just a really stupid mistake, writing-wise. Man-At-Arms just re-forged the Kirbinite like it was nothing. 

New Adventures! It would be awesome if season two is on Primus! Seeing New Adventures characters with this animation would be incredible. Then they could return to Eternia in season 3 to all sorts of craziness & more masters that were conscripted while they were gone.

Cry Havoc Part 1

He-Man and The Masters of The Universe
S01E09

This is what I always wanted to see! He-Man & Skeletor fighting each other like the old paintings. Plus all the other characters fighting each other. I don't need some complicated plot or scheme. Just a lot of action with cool poses, camera angles & explosions. I don't like that everyone has magic, but if it means more of this action, I will accept it!

The Menacers of The Universe or Dark Masters, I'm not sure which one the show is going to continue using for the bad guys but they had really great transformations. I think Beastman's is the best because it was shocking to me.
 
I wanted Evil-Lyn in a helmet like the original & I got it plus head wings! like Devilman Lady, Morrigan, Satanika) plus she got her own special power, Wings of Horokoth which is from the DC comics! black Teela had her Wings of Zoar.

I hated that Skeletor was able to break The Power Sword. It would have been better if he was just able to disarm He-Man. They better have a good resolution for that in the next episode.

The Calm Before the Storm

He-Man and The Masters of The Universe
S01E08

So glad, that Adam transforming into He-Man isn't a secret. I always said that there was no need for it. The secret never protected anyone. The royal family was always a target.

Usually kid show jokes aren't funny but that sand witch joke was really funny and it's more funny when you think about shokoti.

I'm glad they showed us the death of the black Sorceress, I guess she isn't black Teela's mom. She's dead so there is no reason to keep that a secret either.

Even though he tried to save his subjects, Randor is stubborn & unreasonable. I see why people don't like him & his guards are bad at their job.

He-Man the Hunted

He-Man and The Masters of The Universe
S01E07

It was weird to see Beastman be introduced as some human instead from a tribe of beastmen. I guess Skeletor will transform him. I'm glad they told Ork-0 that he's not the original wizard. Hopefully he won't be so annoying from now on.

Krass was super annoying in this episode. I get that she's jealous of black Teela & Adam's new destiny but she was being selfish. Her putting her hand on Adam's face in the net wasn't funny. Are they calling their spaceship the Wind Raider?

Orko the Great

He-Man and The Masters of The Universe
S01E06

I never liked Orko, but I liked how he was introduced here, but it doesn't make sense that this drone is so powerful. I liked the kids training. Ram Ma'am's elastics are a good way for her to slingshot around.

I liked that they introduced Collosor. It's interesting that Tuvar & Badrha start out as royal guards. I don't know why they are making the guards so incompetent though. It would have been better if the guards were just over-powered because they are human.

I really liked seeing He-Man hack away with his sword at Collosor, but that slow-motion scene with him getting hit in the face by his own sword was annoying. I didn't like the introduction of the word flarkin either. Also Krass saying that she had to rescue He-Man again was stupid, she didn't even rescue him once. We went 5 episodes without He-Man being incompetent or the butt of the jokes, hopefully it won't continue.

We Have the Power

He-Man and The Masters of The Universe
S01E05

Are they going to tell us more about Krass's lavender-skinned race? I guess He-Man has a new Lightning Strike power. They seem to have taken ideas from Power Rangers in order to re-use footage. I'm ok with the footage re-use, but I don't like He-Man shooting energy, NA He-Man did that too. It's a sword, not a gun. I'm not a fan of Battle Cat shooting energy from his claws either. No sir, I don't like it.

Stratos & Mer-Man are coming soon! Will we see Hawke or Delora? Will there be a heroic Aquatican? Mermista? or Princess Nami? Will Mer-Man start out good then turn bad? I'm also waiting for Skeletor to share the havoc with Evil-Lyn & Kronis so they turn into their regular selves.

Seeing the royal guards was cool, but them screaming like girls was not funny. It might have been funny if they were the bad guys, but so far King Randor isn't really a bad guy. Krass using her helmet as a chamber pot was also not funny, it was gross.

The Champions of Grayskull

He-Man and The Masters of The Universe
S01E04

I loved how they introduced Panthor! I'm not sure why they made him disappear though. Ram-Ma'am is such a cringe inducing name. I hate it. I like her character but I hate that she isn't someone new. Black Teela being the new sorceress was good.

I love that Man-at-Arms is no longer upstaging He-Man, the way he has done in every other cartoon. He was never the "most dangerous man on Eternia," he isn't Batman. He was never supposed to be the older mentor character. I really like that Battle Cat has that role instead now.

I like that Skeletor mentioned the Snake Men. Good way to set up things for the future.
