Can Never Replace The Original!!!
I may be among a small minority but I ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY, HATE THIS SHOW! While it was not nearly as bad as "The New Adventures of He-Man" from 1990, this latest incarnation of He-Man is still a joke. Dolph Lundgren's "Master's of the Universe" was better than this. As with alot of these newer shows (but old in Japan) like Pokemon, Digimon, and Yu-Gi-Oh, this one is too chock full of drama and/or corny jokes. Less emphasis is put on the actual action vs. the non stop action of the original. I really don't care how Adam of Eternia evolves as a person. I just want to see him fight the forces of evil. I know they are trying to sell toys again but it's like they were trying too hard or something. I am a fan of Japanese Anime just like the next guy, but I do not like this new style of bright, soft and colorful Japanese animation that you commonly see on Fox and WB. The older style seen in everything from Gundam Wing to Akira is more visually stunning. One good thing about this mockery is that all of the characters from the original He-Man are present and the dialog is better. Cam Clarke is the man but I can't help picturing Leonardo from the Ninja Turtles when Adam is speaking. However, the sequence when Adam and Cringer become He-Man and Battle Cat does not even come close to the wonderful effects of the original. In addition, why is it that people cannot come up with original ideas anymore. I am sick and tired of seeing these rehashed versions of older cartoons. First, they butchered the Transformers with the travesties that are "Transformers: Robots in Disguise" and "Transformers: Armada." Now they have destroyed He-Man and TMNT is being ruined in '03. What's next, are they gonna mess G.I. Joe up? If they are going to show anything, show the originals. I guess maybe I am showing my age but I prefer the jerky animation from the original Filmation production from 83. I watched the original show religously in the 80s and would still prefer it over this crap. I saw a kid with a T-shirt based on this new junk and I almost threw up. There is no more appreciation for history. They need to start an 80s toons channel. DIC (except for G.I. Joe Extreme), Filmation, Sunbow, Ruby Spears, and Mirage Studios all Rule!!!
