Episode 37: The Search

In one of the most important episodes of the series, He-Man and Skeletor race to find the Starseed, a chunk of cosmic matter that created the universe. And, wouldn’t you know it: the Starseed is located in the core of Eternia, which itself is located in the center of the universe. We’re learning this history…


Episode 36: The Unicorn King

Oh, to glide beneath the rainbows, to prance among the clouds, to whinny at the heavens. It’s great to be a unicorn and make your home among friends on Unicorn Island – as long as a cybernetic strongman doesn’t invent the planet’s first submarine and discover where you live. When danger comes calling, the Unicorn…


Episode 35: The Taking of Grayskull

It’s a big day in Eternia – it’s Orko’s birthday! But no one seems to have remembered. They’re too busy trying to figure out why Castle Grayskull has disappeared. It seems as though Skeletor has toted Sorceress and her castle off to a dimension on the other side of a white hole. Now He-Man and…


Episode 34: Book Burning (Lightning Round #3)

This week’s episode explores the dangers of controlling information. Naturally, Hordak would try such an insidious tactic. He’s trying to encourage obedience to the Horde by burning all the books in Etheria that are critical of his regime. To execute his censorship campaign, he has enlisted the help of Tung, Rattlor and Cory – a…


Episode 33: Prince Adam No More (the Halloween Episode)

It seems as though He-Man has had enough of his alter ego, Prince Adam. When King Randor shares his intentions to take He-Man on the royal tour instead of Prince Adam, He-Man realizes that playing the goober for so many years has come at maybe too great a cost. At the same time, Beast Man…


Episode 32: The Crystal Castle

How did She-Ra find the Crystal Castle? The 1985 children’s toy market wants to know. But who are we kidding? We’re grown, and we’re still dying to find out! And, thank goodness we got an explanation, because the last time we met Light Hope, She-Ra was shooting the breeze with the guy like they were…


Episode 31: Evilseed

When a new villain threatens Eternia, the Masters of the Universe must fire up the party line and recruit Skeletor to their cause. During the adventure, we get chummy with “Rammi,” save some gnomes, revel in the depths of Skeletor’s selfishness, and have some thoughts about an odd word choice in an era before Google….


Episode 30: The Stone in the Sword (Lightning Round #2)

While Hordak is flying up, up and away in his beautiful Doom Balloon, Adora must complete a trial to repair her sword – so she can turn into She-Ra again and rescue Bo from a Horde prison. For the first time, we get a good look at Light Hope (who is much harder on Adora…


Episode 29: Dawn of Dragoon

Is this the best episode of He-Man? Opinions vary, but one of them is correct. At last, we get too see Orko’s homeworld. In Trolla, everything is backwards: fish fly, trees are upside down, and He-Man changes back into Prince Adam! But not everything is whimsical in this magical land: Trolla is under siege from…


Episode 28: Enchanted Castle

It’s a regular who’s who in Etheria this week. Queen Castaspella is throwing a Freedom Celebration at her castle (resisting Olive Garden joke), and the whole gang is there (even some brilliantly colored friends that we won’t properly meet until later). What’s a Freedom Celebration, you ask? Adora recounts the whole story to Kowl. We…
