    Season 1 talkback and discussion - *CONTAINS SPOILERS*

    Its on Netflix now!

    ***MOD NOTICE***
    You all are more than welcome to create episode-specific threads! This is what we did back with the 2002 cartoon.
    But since Netflix delivers the entire season at once, and since many of you binge watch, we also offer this general talkback for the entire season.

    So I'm watching the first episode. Not The Secret of the Sword by a longshot.

    Oh my stars and planets! New She-Ra is here and I can't wait to watch all the episodes! Of course, I have my writing and editing work to do and lots of fantasy/science fiction TV and movies to watch, books to read, and music to listen to, so it will take me a fair while to get through all 13 episodes, and I'm bound to love it, and I will let you guys know what I feel about each episode, or at least the first few at a time. Don't worry, it will be positive.

    In the photo clip for Episode 7, In The Shadows Of Mystacor, I'm wondering if the lady in blue with the ring around her head is Castaspella. I hope so.

    I just watched the first 2 episodes and they were ok. Totally different from the original Filmation She-Ra story tho.
    I still wish we got something more like 200X He-Man series or similar.
    I'll keep watching coz there are some tiny stuff I like.

    Spoiler Ahead...


    What I really don't like is that everyone just keeps finding out Adora is She-Ra including Catra.
    Even Catra knows?
    The Evil Horde can't know her secret that's just crazy.

    So does it have an opening theme or do they just dive into the show with credits over the opening scenes?

    I've only watched 1 episode so far. I have to confess that I cried several times, had goosebumps and smiled watching first episode. The backgrounds are gorgeous, the animation is very smooth, the music is very good. I still think that the art style is too simplified, not beautiful and always reminds me I'm watching a kid's cartoon and some character designs are very questionable to say the least (looking at you, Shadow Weaver), but somehow it all works in motion and is indeed watchable. I'm kinda afraid to continue watching, because it's been good so far and I don't want to be disappointed.
    P.S. I was surprised that Queen Angella did have a chest, because I was convinced no one was allowed to on this show.

    I'd say Entrapta's introduction was easily the worst of episode of what I've seen so far, while I get what they were going for with it being a lighthearted episode before a few much darker ones, I think it's the only episode were the humour felt obnoxious and took away from the story rather than added to it.

    Otherwise decent stuff so far.

    Wow, I hadn't seen
     
    Razz yet! People said she looked awful, but I think she looks great! I always envisioned her becoming more like a crazy cat lady, or like that witch from the bugs bunny cartoon (that runs and the hairpins fly off her head).
    Looking forward to seeing her in action!

    These redesigns are a bit too much.

     

    Both Glimmer and Bow are essentially Trans.

    Is there a reason they can't be gay in this new take on POP?
    Hope to see you at Power-Con 2020!

    Iíve only watched through episode 5 (where you meet Scorpia and Seahawk), and iím wondering where you got that they were gay?

    Not that I have a problem with varied orientations (in fact Iím all for diversity), I didnít catch anything that defined them as gay. Yes, Scorpia was amazon-like, but she was also quite butch in the original series ó remember that voice? And, Seahawk is flamboyant, but flamboyant does not equal gay. Especially when he referenced riding in the Love Tunnel with Mermista.

    Again, being flamboyant or butch is totally fine, and so is being gay, I just wouldnít automatically assume one means the other.

    Or do they discuss this more in future episodes?

    We have about 4 episodes left to watch. Overall I really like what Iím seeing so far, and my daughter loves it. I will say that I found my attention wandering during the Entrapta episode.

    I would like to see them go into a little more detail as to why Catra was raised in the Horde.

    Just finished episode 11.
    I'll have to save the last 2 for tomorrow.
    I really like it.
    TBH, I think it would be great for kids 5-10, yet, parents can totally watch and even laugh.
    Bow is hilarious. He really is the best part to me.
    I like Glimmer's character better in this show.

    one of the things i like about this show is Sea Hawk. mainly the parts about him lighting boats on fire. (is that a sign of pyromania?)

    Mermista is that kind if woman I would get into trouble with
    Gosh how much I dislike girls like her.
    She truly is totally unsympatic.


    All in all this is very much for girls and their problems ...less mystic and magic

    Watched the entire season! And I must say WOW...it was fantastic! Some real funny moments and some moments gave me goosebumps! Especially when they discuss the 1st ones. I hope this show lasts for at least 100 episodes
    Awesome new Fantasy RPG 5E/D&D magazine coming and you can pre-order at the link below!

    this series just isn't for me.

    Episode 3. What the hell did they do to razz?

    it feels like someone said 'remember yoda's first meeting with luke? lets just copy that'......only they made razz into a crazed old hermit with no real sense about her. complete with 'flies' buzzing around.

    the voice is ok, but the design is horrid. No character in broom anymore. Lookee and Kowl are reduced to art and plushees.

    they are taking all the other worldly stuff out of this series. at least 'she-ra' is allowed to talk in episode 3. not just a mindless automa ton.

    I also don't like how the power only seems random, or when needed. she can't call on it at will.

    Catra did not earn her force captain badge. it was given as punishment for someone else. part of this generations 'trophy for everyone regardless of quality' mentality.

    ugh.

    she ra deserves better than this mess.

    except for her last line of 'who was that girl?'

    would seem she's a little crazed due to age. if she is a first one....

    there is nothing in this series that gets me hooked. the old one, even without he-man at least had interesting designs and music and effects and voices and..

    I think it was less "everyone gets a trophy" and more "You promised me a force Captain so you better have spent equal time on both the candidates" thing aimed at Shadow Weaver. It honestly feels like Hordak was already getting tired of Shadow Weaver resting on her laurels when it comes to his orders.

    Razz is addled, this is true, but she's also clearly concealing more than she's letting on, especially with what Entraptra shows off later in the season. That obelisk started glowing when she touched it doing her parkor berry picking mission. Something is up with this sweet old lady. I have my theories, but we don't have a thread for discussing wild mass guessings.
