i think she-ra was a strong show on it's own... i didn't mind the cross-overs, and actually thought it was cool, but i'm glad the majority of the show was just she-ra and her friends on etheria. honestly, i'm not sure why it wasn't more successful... i LOVED it. (obviously, because here i am as an adult still talking about how awesome it was...) at any rate, that kind of role model is important for girls and is usually lacking. unfortunately, i think the show was too 'wholesome' to make it any longer. he-man, too. remember, he was already canceled by the time she-ra came around. cartoons got edgier, quicker, more-fight-scenes-less-conversation-ish.
