Thanks to the BTTE home work a few weeks ago I decided to give the New Adventures a watch for the first time in nearly 20 years.
My first opinions were that it was awful and blaming Glenn for listening to his opinion of giving the show another go, but after a few episodes it grew on me and is very enjoyable. Once you get past the fact it is a follow on to the Filmation series yet has nothing in common with it due to a completely different animation style, studio and using voice actors we know and love such as Scott O'Neil and Gary Chalk in roles we are not used too.
I was surprised that the first episode had a brief appearance from King Randor and Queen Marlena, and Teela shows up in episode 35, though looks absolutely nothing like the Teela we all know and love. While I still hate Caz and the scientists are really bloody annoying, there are some great characters in the show with Slush Head being my personal favourite.
I highly recommend that if you haven't seen this show to give it a go. I couldn't find it to "acquire" anywhere, but some kind sole has all 65 episodes on his youtube channel. So go to the link below and enjoy.
The most recent episode I have been able to watch more or less features The New Adventures take on Faker. He was a genetic clone of He-Man whom Skeletor named He-Slave, and like the Filmation appearance wasn't blue, but there is no was you can convince me that wasn't Faker.
