    So! In under a week the She-Ra cartoon will drop on Netflix and I'm SO HYPE YOU GUYS. so hype. i am so excited for this tale of a goober ex-evil soldier and her still-evil maybe ex-best friend catgirl and her new best friends/found family.

    Also I'm loving all the character material we're getting ahead of the launch, including the twitter profiles (which i had to break into two) and all the videos and. gosh.

    i am in extreme love over the fact that catra apparently went 'ok. i need the perfect outfit to either seduce adora back to the dark side, show her i'm totally over her and she's missing out, and either way show up ever single other person at this fancy princess party.'

    'Maroon suit with the sleeves rolled up, undone bowtie, fingerless gloves. NAILED IT.'

    Well, technically they're The Rebellion, and the core of the Rebellion is the Princess Alliance, which I THINK is some kind of mutual-aid pact between the various magical monarchies. or something? i admit i'm a bit fuzzy on the political scene of this cartoon.

    Aaand we have a Hordak profile!

    also I love Glimmer's interior decorating. of course she hung a bunch of seats from the ceiling that are only accessible via teleports. and a ton of targets pinned to the walls. that is perfect.

    edit: oh dang they leaked Angella's profile early!

    Omg I forgot all about this!! I still wish they were adults but those clips were so good, it's definitely piqued my interest. It's just so cool seeing all the characters I remember and love with these neat modern designs... Talk about your nostalgia blast. I literally grew up on the original show, I LOVED She Ra so... This will be interesting to see what they do.

    (I hope Flutterina shows up eventually, she was my favorite beside Entrapta... who wouldn't love a character who's only trait is literally having butterfly wings)

    I think they rebooted Entrapta... quite a lot, but her personality in this seems REALLY COOL

    and I'm ALSO just - wow, Angella is immortal. How old is she?? Did she know the First Ones? IS she a first one? and her husband! was he just an ordinary human? Because imagine that - you're immortal, and you fall in love with a human - and you know, going into this, that it'll be temporary, humans die and you remain, but you love him fiercely and unreservedly, and at least even humans can live for a while, long enough to see your daughter grow -

    and then he's killed.

    Okay, one thing I remember from the He-Man cartoon is Adam bitching about how he's forced to act like a lazy screwup to protect his secret identity as He-man. She-ra also had just a few people who knew about her dual identity. I saw a trailer where she told everyone that she's She-Ra, so that should be interesting.

    Yeah it doesn't seem like they're even bothering with the secret identity thing. This is more straightforward anyways.

    Watched the first episode last night and I wanted to binge-watch but decided not to. (Didn't realize I'd stay awake through an entire episode of Drop Dead Diva.)

    OMG, I forgot that SheRa could talk to animals. Now I want her to go find Spirit/Swift Wind.

    Because my thoughts are pinballing around, I remember watching a documentary about the HeMan toys where they decided to re-tool the tiger from another toy-line. I don't remember why they painted him green, but "the scale is off, he'd be as big as a horse" so "put a saddle on him."

    The show looks great and I LOVE Catra, but every time I see the name Adora, my mind goes to Adora Belle Dearheart from Discworld and it is very much a different mental image.

    Okay, I think I'm on episode 3... Between this, Dragon Prince, and maybe Trollhunters... I think that Netflix economy is kinda changing shows where they can stretch the pilot for somewhere over an hour as long as they put enough interesting moments in.

    Oh my deary my, I hated Madame Razz back in the day. This one is still cloudcucoolander, but has moments of being self-aware and even being Rafiki-wise guru-thing.

    And Broom, and Lutki... OMG, there probably isn't a morality-segment because "not the 80's" but I really want Lutki to be something like maybe an ancient forest spirit that has his in-universe moment like in the show. I mean, in the original show, Light Hope was like this non-thing that I never understood.

    I just love how it starts off all awkward with Adora not understanding what the waterfall is for. I guess it's for staring at, like how we have lava-lamps. In the end, they give her a hard mattress instead of that squishy thing and volunteer to sleep with her until the lack of people is her only problem with her own room.
    She's like, "I'm only letting you stay because Glimmer vouched for you," but she obviously doesn't trust Glimmer's maturity level, and instead is relying on recognising that Adora is the legendary SheRa. I think she was using a tactic, or just a bit of identity fracturing.

    Just, there has to be a trope where you get the pacifist to stop justifying things as an excuse to sit on their ass and be pacifists and they scream "I never felt so alive" while finally doing something about their shitty situation.
    In my own situation, not just accepting things has gone on a worse outcome. I mean, I think I hate the trope because it just seems so easy for someone to point out the problem and they stop letting people walk all over them. I'm not going to put the doubts into words unless poked or I think about it.
