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 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 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 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…


Episode 24: The Laughing Dragon

Remember how the first Sorrowful the Dragon episode made it seem like we had missed something? The production and broadcast order was a mess-around this time, so we’re just now seeing Sorrowful’s origin story. Don’t worry – Sorrowful’s not the important part of the story. The part we care about is Imp (who likes to…


Episode 22: The Peril of Whispering Woods

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 18: 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 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 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 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….
