The New He-Man 'toon...

I dunno, I've watched the 90 minute movie and two of the episodes... it just isn't doing it for me. The opening has shades of original opening, but it mucks that up *which is the point... but dammit, you do not FUCK WITH THE ORIGINAL OPENING!*. Cam Clarke *or is it Smith? I forget* is really good as Adam... but his He-Man lacks the oomph that John Erwin gave the character almost 20 years ago. And Skeletor... no one can touch Alan Oppenhiemers Skeletor, whoever the hell this new guy is tries... and he's alright as Skels... but let's be honest, the first skeletor is the supreme skeletor. Teela is millions of times hotter this time around, it's really because her hair is a lot longer... honest. The Villains make me laugh, which is arguably the strongest point of the show, especially Evil-Lyn she's pure comedy. I saw Buzz-Off in the episode I just watched... it made me happy. My biggest complaint is that when Adam says "By the Power of Grayskull... I have the power" it just isn't cool... that is easily one of the most recognized phrases in the history of cartoons... it has such power, such feeling... or at least it did. I shudder to think what Adora's "For the Honor of Grayskull" would sound like *And if they don't put She-Ra in this series at some point they will incur my wrath*. Orko and Duncan piss me off... not that Duncan was ever cool, but Orko was funny back when, now he's just there taking up space. And since when does Stratos have to sound like some 3rd rate Sean Connery impersonater? Huh? *Sigh* When are the original episodes going to be put on DVD so I can buy them and see what the cartoon was... one of the greatest shows ever. There is a plus side though, apparently Skels is after Grayskull now, which was practically the entire point of the series before... it should get better *crosses fingers* here's hoping...
