Top Customer Reviews
The final 32 episodes include some of the best written episodes and well loved episodes of the series. Fans of the series can look forward to owning the episodes "Not So Blind," "Teela's Triumph," and "The Greatest Show On Eternia" on DVD for the first time among other fantastic season two episodes.
Ink and Paint once again held back nothing when it came to a He-Man release. This final installment of episodes from the original series is of the highest quality. The set includes two collectible cards, one drawn by Dan Brereton and the other by Mike McKone. In addition to the cards, the set includes plentiful bonus features.
Believe it or not, they managed to produce more brand new documentaries. The first documentary is titled "The Stories of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe." It's an interesting documentary where various people involved with the show speak about the final 32 episodes. Much of the conversations are about the episodes "The Greatest Show in Eternia" and "Not So Blind." It is mentioned that the writers and people involved with the show knew before production started that despite good ratings this would be the last season due to decisions from financial backers. It was also mentioned by one writer that the show had pretty much run it's course. By the show being episodic in nature, everything had to be wrapped up by the end of each episode. If they could have had continuing storylines the show may have had potential to last longer.
He Man and the Masters of the Universe Season Two Volume 2 is a must purchase to complete your He-Man DVD collection.
Keep an eye out for She-Ra Princess of Power Season One Volume One due out in November, for He-Man crossovers as well as the Princess of Power herself, She-Ra. Let the power of He-Man return one final time!
I forego the conclusion that if 2 of 2 is out then all previous volumes must also be...How Nice! I had found the last, first! The following day I watched the entire volume in 12 hours. Then within 3 weeks I had the entire collection. Thereafter, I disciplined myself to watch one episode a day, it was not easy.
I would have been happy if the dvds were less than perfect, but I could not believe how much meticulous attention each episode got, with pristine quality due to BCI Eclipse. It was more than I wanted. Thereafter that, it just did not stop. Some of the most landmark cartoons of the 80's are in retail!...YES!!!
Despite the fact that there is an unmistakable sadness that taints the viewing experience (after all, we realize that this is goodbye), the show's writers managed to break out of the slight slump that they apparently fallen into during the first half of the season. Unlike the first half, where additions to Mattel's corresponding toy line meant the introduction to several new characters (save Roboto), the second half works more closely with the formula discovered in the first season: the plots are bit more lesson-oriented but with slightly richer animation quality.
At this point in time, the Filmation creative machine was changing gears for the upcoming She-Ra: Princess of Power series but their efforts in closing out He-Man were a worthy farewell. Those expecting some kind of closure or finale may be disappointed to learn that each and every episode of the 130 was designed to be a stand-alone plot (with resolve) and # 130 is no different.Read more ›
