How was everybody’s weekend? Cool. Cool, cool, cool. Welcome back to another exciting rewatch on the Car JoeMez channel. It’s a basic channel, no premium payments needed…for now.
We’re continuing along in our series rewatch of the 2002 Mike Young Productions’ He-Man & The Masters of the Universe and I’d say so far, so good. The changes and differences from the beloved original have made sense and helped improve the presentation and the storytelling is light-years ahead of the original which was a victim of its time where these shows just didn’t feature a conjoined story across multiple episodes – forget about a full season – unless it was some kind of special like “The Secret of the Sword” movie that introduced She-Ra that was then broken up into five episodes for television or the two-part Supermarket Sweep episode of Married…With Children that will be forever beloved in my house.
OK, so we’ve got improved storytelling, changes that have been positive and animation that takes advantage of the advances in the system to give a sleek, action-packed finished product. I’d say we’re doing pretty good so far. Which makes this a great time to start week 2 of the rewatch. Let’s go.
