    Masters of the Universe: Revelation 6/10 - This is an adaptation 80’s kiddie cartoon He-Man and the Masters of the Universe albeit for the adult crowd. I was a fan of 80s show and was an avid collector of the toyline back in the day. This adaptation unfortunately sucks. They killed the main character in the first episode. :mad::mad: The remaining episodes focused on Teela. They should have just called this Teela and the Masters of the Universe. :mad::mad:

    I think it was geared towards appeasing millenials and the politically correct crowd. He-Man had always been heavy handed with the machismo, so I guess they wanted to balance it out without going full She-Ra. Haha!

    It was boring in some parts, because as you said, the namesake hero was missing for most of the show, but at least it shed light and back story on many of the characters that the original series never did.

    Hmm. What it did is alienated most of the fan base. Kevin Smith is being bashed online. I love the animation, it’s just not just something that you’d expect from a He-Man animation. The producers designed the story to have a season 2 but with the terrible backlash from fans, there might not even be a season 2.

    I recently finished Trese. I watched it with english audio and I liked it. It reminds me of Constantine and Grimm (the TV show). I liked the origin stories of the main characters, especially Trese's twin body guards. I wonder how they developed a taste for their tailored suits. Trese's origin story still has a lot of mysteries left unanswered. I hope they address it in future seasons.

    Mary Elizabeth Winstead looks like a dead ringer for a young Sigourney Weaver in Aliens.

    Hmmm yeah I think they're trying to be PC that's why it was focused more on Teela than He-Man. Maybe that's why also they removed He-Man from the title, so Masters of the Universe can be anyone. Then Revelation because it would be about her. (surprise!). hehe

    Hmm. Yeah. Problem is the Masters of the Universe franchise has always been associated with He-Man not Teela. If they wanted a female character as the main protagonist they should have just made She-Ra.

    I watched episode 1 just to see he-man die a bloody violent death (ala invincible). But no, it was very anticlimactic
