I wanted to watch something different as I had taken a break from my last show for about a week I guess.
I found season two of He-man and the Masters of the Universe not to be as good as the first season.
At one stage in a small eight-episode season, they had two to three storylines going on.
I found it a litter disorganized and could be seen as hard to follow.
Again this new version of the cartoon is not like the original all characters are younger teens and although the same level of action it still does not feel the same.
If you grew up with the original He-man and the Masters of the Universe you remember at the end of every episode there was a moral to the story and a life lesson about virtue being good and choices made etc.
We have none of that here and I feel it’s a really big piece missing in the new show. This was one of the main reasons my mum would allow me to watch the original show as it would teach you something at the end.
On the adventure to stop Skeletor in this season two from getting the sigil we meet a new character called Stratos at first Stratos and He-Man are at other ends of the battle but soon get on the same page on the side of good.
Although this season we have most characters already created and they know who they are there is a big character change and arc in the second season which on one hand you don’t want to happen but on the other hand you can see it takes the story to the next level.
Most of the season is done in Stratos’s Kingdom in the sky and it feels like a platform game that they go from one platform level to the next.
A cool little show that you could realistically finish all three seasons on one binge session if you really wanted but if you have kids you can watch this with them if they are like 8 and above with parental guidance.
How He-man and the Masters of the Universe got a PG rating and the first season of The Simpsons got a G rating is beyond me as the themes were stronger in THe Simpsons it should have gotten a PG rating in the first season.
Something to pass the time and remember fond childhood memories but it really does not feel like it references the original show in any way besides the characters’ names.
I give the second season of He-man and the Masters of the Universe a 4.5/10
