Episode 23: Evil-Lyn’s Plot

Evil-Lynn with Coridite

You know you’re in for a good episode when it involves ore and smelting. Skeletor heard tell that the Widgets – a society of dopey gnomes – are guarding a powerful ore called Cordite, the same material from which He-Man’s harness was forged! With a little of that ore, Skeletor believes he could defeat his…


Episode 22: The Peril of Whispering Woods

Prince Zed and Hordak

What a rich episode! This one has everything: a petulant princeling, a dunking booth, world lore, and even overt political overtones about chemical warfare. You may need to consult your encyclopedias to keep up. Along the way, we discuss morality and switching sides, as well the power you can access through long glorious hair. Show…


Episode 21: Masks of Power

As Rebekah reminds us in this episode, it’s basically never a good idea to go hunting for ancient objects of power. They’re pretty curse-ed. But, I guess nobody told that to Sorceress. She’s sending Prince Adam on an errand (along with Man-at-Arms and Orko) to collect the Masks of Power from some old temple. Folks…


Episode 20: The Prisoners of Beast Island

The horde is ramping up its campaign of domination – with new equipment, an emboldened Catra, and the recruitment of Rattlor – but the Great Rebellion has a secret weapon: an unconfident, inexperienced dragon named Sorrowful. She-Ra (with new ice powers) and her new princess pal Castaspella thwart an attack on Bluestone, but Sorrowful is…


Episode 19: A Friend in Need

Well, we’re talking about a popular cartoon in the 80s, so we were bound to encounter an anti-drug episode. Ileena, an old friend of Teela’s, drops by, and after a close call on her robot horse in the geyser fields (yes, it’s as crazy as it sounds), she starts looking for a dose of bravery….


Episode 18: The Missing Ax

Thad an Kyle - The Missing Ax

This episode was a fun one for us. We follow young Thad and Kyle, a couple of first-rate liars who almost get Bow killed with their nonsense. Of course, it’s all kind of their father’s fault since he let them borrow his ax. Lucky for everyone, She-Ra knows a fib when she hears one. We…


Episode 17: Dragon Invasion

We learned a lot in this episode about teamwork, pet care and controlling others. Skeletor catches some sass from Beast Man as he gathers too many dragon-related artifacts, Orko really wants his friends to work together, and Teela is a dragon whisperer. We also have some time to discuss ole-timey photography and what to do…


Episode 16: The Red Knight

A mysterious red knight beats bow at running and throws him into an existential crisis, but She-Ra is on-hand to give some pat advice. In the meantime, Hordak and the Horde take advantage of a rather conspicuous Rebels’ Fair – and he brought along his bubble blaster. Along the way, we discuss winning things at…


Episode 15: The Time Corridor

In this episode, He-Man charges into the past to battle Skeletor, and we’re pretty sure he doesn’t really understand anything the Sorceress has told him.. Along the way, we meet the snake and ape clans, plus some new henchmen. Meanwhile, we learn all about milk break. Your choices are chocolate, white or spider milk. Show…


Episode 14: The Sea Hawk

In “The Sea Hawk” (S1-E7 of She-Ra: Princess of Power), She-Ra and Swifty take to the sea. Some pitiful little elves are confused about a sea monster, and a hunky pirate considers joining the rebellion (mostly because no one mentioned anything about Madame Razz). We also catch up with Grizzlor and Catra, who is in RARE…
