that would be indeed neat, here's hoping.

I think the mid season break hurt this for some. There is an arc for Lyn, Adam, Teela, and Skeletor that was satisfying for me in its resolution. Everyone got a moment to shine and it felt fun. I could have used a little more suspense, but over all I am happy where it ended up even if I had concerns in the middle parts.

Part 2 was like Part 1 for me. Hits and misses throughout but it built enough momentum toward the finale that I was very satisfied by the time it ended.

100% agree. Second part closed some loops from the first and it would have greatly benefitted from a 10 episode release. They did a good job laying ground work on lore about the power (I do hate how that?s how it was constantly referenced) and how Adam truly is special and unique. There have been other champions but Adam as He-Man is THE guy. I?m satisfied with what we got, but have no desire to see more. Once again Lena absolutely crushed it as Lyn, and Gellar was again weak as Teela. He-Man and Duncan actors were solid, and no fault of his own I can?t buy Hamil as Skeletor. I just hear the Joker.

That mid-season split certainly hurt this for me. It killed a lot of momentum for the storytelling and my excitement for this particular version. It didn't help that a far superior MOTU was released between these two Revelation halves.

But yeah, overall it was fun and worth the watch. I hope they get another season and hopefully they release it in a better way.

Ends on what ought to be a pretty agreeable note.

Having that said, some of the writers' choices really betray the tone they were going for (the scene where Evil-Lyn comes onto Skeletor) and make the show feel like a hodge-podge of different sensibilities, many of which have no place in MOTU. In that regard, I think I enjoyed Part 1 more than Part 2.

It's not bad, but it's nothing special either. The 2002 series remains my favorite by a country mile. Mike Young Productions did everything Kevin Smith tried to do, but better. More audience-appropriate, more consistent in tone, more lore, and it was all tied together with a great look.

I think making out with a skull would not be...the most enticing prospect.
