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…


Episode 13: The Curse of the Spellstone

Can Evil-Lyn just focus? She’s got some good ideas, but she has trouble following through. In this episode, we’ve got a sprawling tentacle growth that suffocates people, and a stone (a SPELL stone) that controls the weather, plus a lot of impressionable villagers. Also, we have a chat about super powers and how Attak Trak feels…


Episode 12: Duel at Devlan

This week, we find out once and for all whether a nine-foot-tall party robot with a face in his stomach can make up for insufferable doofy woodland creatures and Madame Razz pancakes. I won’t tip our hand but … it was close! The good news is – all the foolishness makes for a good show….


Episode 11: Teela’s Quest

Yay – it’s another Paul Dini episode! And it’s a good one. Finally, Teela gets to whoop up on some folks. However, it must be said: this is the clearest case of Hashtag-Tell-Teela that you will ever see. If you can get past this fact, there’s a lot to enjoying, including a barn burner performance…


Episode 10: Battle for Brightmoon

Our five-part pilot mini-series for She-Ra: Princess of Power has been building to this moment. It’s finally time to confront Hordak and take back Bright Moon. This will require dire bear telepathy, sneezy arrows and awareness that Skeletor may be disguising people as a catering staff. Meanwhile, we try not to be too depressed about…
