Mark Hamill as Skeletor? Yes please!

Interesting that it's a continuation of the 80s cartoon and not a total reboot

I hope they keep the gay porn vibe in the new version.

Netflix did a She-Ra reboot, and it was the gayest show I've ever seen. And I mean that as a compliment. It was really well done with a diverse character set that does not feel forced or trivializing.

I kind of wish they kept that vibe and set the He-Man series in that same universe, but that is not the case with this.

I'm reminded of the later seasons of Xena: Warrior Princes. There was always kind of an undertone and hint that Xena may be gay, but by the later seasons, it was full on out. I've always wondered how much that helped gay people get more acceptance in society. It's the first show I recall with openly gay women.

I was plesently surprised by how good She-Ra is. Since this is a Kevin Smith gig, I've got my hopes up.

Well, they certainly have the soundtrack down to perfection.. haha..

Seriously, this looks like fun. I was thinking about cancelling Netflix. If I do, it will be after I binge watch this.

Looks good

Maybe Kevin Smith will do a G1 Transformers series next

That would be nice, but Netflix already has a Transformer series (which is average IMO) so I don't see them doing that.
