Episode 49: Anchors Aloft

Admiral Scurvy here, with his excellent companion, Squall, was the highlight of this week’s episode of She-Ra: Anchors Aloft, which was a two-parter! Oooh. It was filled with high stakes on the high seas, hijinks from hi-ding mice, and mi-hi-ghty questionable ethics from our favorite sea scalawag, the Sea Hawk. Basically, Adora gets captured at…


Episode 47: Magicats

Rrrrow! You aren’t allergic to pet dander are you? Well, that’s tough – because you shouldn’t have fallen through a rift in the ground and landed in the secret city of cats! Such is She-Ra’s predicament when the episode begins. After working her way through an underground labyrinth, our hero discovers that Catra has already…


Episode 45: Of Shadows and Skulls

The only person happier to see Skeletor in this She-Ra episode is old bonehead himself. Much like one of Thin Lizzy’s boys who are back in town, our favorite villain is reveling in his glorious return. And we have Shadow Weaver to thank for his appearance. Still stinging from a harsh rebuke after a failed…


Episode 43: Loo-Kee Lends a Hand

A long time ago, Dennis the Menace invaded The Donna Reed Show. Then Batman joined forces with the Green Hornet. And now … in the great tradition of ill-advised crossovers, Loo-Kee will meet the Masters of the Universe. When Hordak freezes time in the Whispering Woods, Light Hope wastes no time spilling the beans to…


Episode 41: He-Man & She-Ra: A Christmas Special

Your Christmas list appeared to us in a vision, and after a farcical quest to locate your most coveted gift, we found something just as good. That’s right: This week, we’re reviewing He-Man & She-Ra: A Christmas Special, also known as the animated 1985 Sears catalogue. Broadcast only once (on Christmas of that year), this…


Episode 38: Into the Dark Dimension (Lightning Round #4)

Is there a scarier phrase in the English language than “group project?” She-Ra’s patience is tested this week when she teams up with Hordak, the cybernetic tyrant of Etheria, to escape an inter-dimensional world or risk enslavement in this strange place by someone called the Dark One, who looks suspiciously like someone else we met…


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…
