Yeah, I really do wish amazon had an option to upgrade packaging for an extra buck or something. I hate their bubble mailers

@  Benbot : (17 October 2019 - 07:17 AM)

That's how it works. I just hope my order from Amazon doesn't arrive crushed because they idiotically stuffed it in an envelope.

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

"WE have a princess problem!" That about the best take away from that trailer, I'm not super excited for this but I will watch it at my own pace, the reason why I'm not so excited is how the first season ended, it just felt like it was more of a MEH end, the princesses have united but where is the stakes? I mean Voltron Legendary Defender its first season ended on a cliffhanger where they escape the cluches of Zarkon only to be hit by Haggar's magic and then scattered across the universe so the heroes fate was up in the air and you want to know what happens next. With She-ra its pretty much, good guys have won and the bad guys driven off, princesses have united, nothing more, story over, sort of, what seemed to be the driving force of the series was to unite the princesses and Aorda and Catra relationship. I think there isn't a lot of room for growth in the second season or to drive the story forwards, it could well be that Mattel having seen the scripts and animation, just think this is not worth the time and effort to make a toy line and instead are focusing on (aside from stay afloat) the live action Masters of the Universe movie that said to be in the works and producing products for that.

Well I rewatched the first season before season 2 hits later this month, my favourte characters are Entrapta & Catra, Entrapta because she has a no fear yet extreme curiousty personalty makes her enjoyable to watch, while Catra just really grows on ya and I kind of found myself rooting for her as she goes from being in Adora's shadow to taking Adora's rank and stuff before taking over Shadow Weaver's procession, within the time frame of about a week if Swift Wind is to believed.

 

Having rewatched the series, things I sort of didn't really pay attention to the first time around or really notice:

Glimmer seems to have a crush on Bow, thou I'm not keen on Bow's personalty, it feels to far out to be taken seriously

The resistance seems awfully short handed if Bow is reporting what the spies are saying and despite some soldiers around, there seems to be none in the Battle of Bright Moon, but it is kind of made out to seem like this war has been raging for a long time with the forest being the only thing stopping the Horde forces from reaching Bright moon

 

As I watched, one question that kept popping up in my head in regards to Shadow Weaver, why is she so obessed with Adora and why was she always over looking Catra and the other cadets?

 

Overall, its not bad but I do feel that they could of done more in some of the early eps, I mean the story doesn't really get going until the All Princess Ball after the first couple of eps, thou I still kept thinking about a confrontation between Shadow Weaver and Adora, in some ways Shadow Weaver is sort of Adora's mother (one of the worse mothers ever). The first season does have a few mysteries yet to be resolved, like Hordak's motivations and goals, then there is Adora's past or rather her connection to She-ra and the First ones.

 

One thing I kind of wonder, will Entrapta build a weapon that empowers Catra and give her similar abbilties to She-ra, I know Catra is skillful and fully capable of doing things Adora can't do but I just think she could use a weapon to battle on par with She-ra, that and combined with her skills would make her a very dangerous foe to Adora.

Yeah, I'd like to see more of Shadow Weaver's side, as she was the mother to Adora.

Catra getting a power up... I hope it's not technological but something akin to discovering that she's also a Princess of Power. Somehow.

Entrapta is still the best Princess.

I mean they pretty much said Adora is genetically linked to the Ancients that stopped the Horde the first time (which is why she can be She-Ra)..   Maybe Shadow Weaver knew that and hoped to use Adora to get all that power for herself.

Its also stated that the line was broken and for a thousand years there was no She-ra and Adora is the first one in a thousand years, so something happened with her predecessor, thou its kind of hinted something to do with attachments that was her downfall, I guess that's why Light Hope was telling Adora to let go of Catra.

I just figured that the Ancients are actually old Eternians that visited Etheria in the past.  Adora, because of her lineage, would be able to access it, especially if King Greyskull or someone like him, is in canon of the show.

It could be Empress Greyskull? At this point we don't exactly know what Greyskull is in this series let alone who, but speculation is GOOD!!

Went to watch season 2...only to discover a family in Ecuador had stolen my Netflix account. One assumed my profile and renamed it (so now Netflix thinks I like porn, horror movies and racist documentaries) and there are 4 other profiles added.

 

Netflix customer service luckily resolved it quickly but what a nasty thing to do. Hoping I can delete the offending content from my profile since you can't just outright delete the primary profile.

I felt the season was just to short, that final ep, I think that could end up being banned in some countries because it depics a same sex couple with a child, while I see nothing seriously wrong with that, other parts of the world, its rather questionable to say the least in their eyes, so when the series gets to Kids TV, I can see that being banned unless its overhauled to make one of the two a female.

 

Anyway, I think its safe to say that much of us like the bad girls trio of Catra, Entrapta & Scorpia, they just seem better than the heroes

 

My thoughts on Hordak's possible origins and motives:

 

Spoiler

 

I hope when the next season comes, they give us some insight into Adora's origins and maybe her predacessor, how did she loose control of her powers and cause havoc?

I'm hoping that this is something akin to what they did with Voltron - half a season now, the other half in a couple months.
