4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting and Underhyped May 5, 2008
The second and final volume of the New Adventures of He-Man marks the end of Jetlag Productions' interesting take on the He-Man franchise. I talked a bit about the fact that this incarnation of the Mattel property is often considered the black sheep of the He-Man family in my review of the first volume and while the material remains consistent here in the second, my feelings on the show as a whole are still quite positive. To clarify, this is undeniably the most different (and often strangest) use of the He-Man characters in any of the various versions of the franchise in any medium (including comic books, animation, live action films etc.) Many fans of the original Filmation show immediately dismiss the New Adventures just because it is so different from what they're accustomed to. I attempted to enter into this review with no preconceived expectations and refrained from the inevitable comparisons with its counterparts. Unfortunately, I wasn't completely successful, especially after having viewed this, the second half of the only (65 episode) season of the program that aired from 1989-1990 in daily syndication.

I heaped on the praise in the first volume of the New Adventures of He-Man for the consistency that the show's writers displayed in keeping the story congruous and the attention to detail they possessed in having small plot developments carry along into later episodes. Truly no stone was left uncovered by the end of the 6-disc set, if even sometimes requiring a patient viewer to revisit a point of confusion several episodes (or even discs) further down the line. Don't get me wrong, while the second half of the season (episodes 34-65) carries on with this tradition, the plot developments taper off pretty early on and don't return until the final disc.

3.0 out of 5 stars Got what I ordered, but it's boring as all hell October 14, 2009
Verified Purchase
I remember this series from when I was a kid. I was huge MOTU fan, and when this series debuted, I was super excited to see a new He-Man series on TV, as well as new toys to play with. The animation was pretty good, but the stories are just boring. I don't think I even bothered watching any of the other DVDs in Volume 2 after a while because I would just lose interest that quickly.

4.0 out of 5 stars A dad's perspective October 18, 2011
Verified Purchase
The New Adventures of He-Man is a fun, anime-styled cartoon. The 1984 Filmation series is an absolute 5-star classic from beginning to end. This 1990 anime styled show takes HeMan to outer space and has alot of fun nods to Star Wars. The voice casting is great and my kids really enjoyed HeMan's new sword exclaiming "It's so much more powerful then it was in the first (Filmation) show." The 1984 show plays very well to the 5 year old set while this reboot plays better to the 8+ demographic. My 5 year old likes it enough but he isn't as captivated with it as he was with Orko & company in the old show. Girls will like the Sorceress and Mara and Drissie and the great ensemble of mutants even has Critter for the girls to root or boo for. With some nice nods to the earlier animated cartoon all dads and their young'ins will have fun watching this incarnation of the He-Man verse as its impossible to not love the Galactic Guardians or their antagonists Skeletor, Flogg, and Slush-head and the rest of the mutants.

4.0 out of 5 stars This series deserves a second chance April 8, 2007
Verified Purchase
Back in 1990, I was one of the many who was turned away by the fact that it wasn't "the same He-Man as what I'm used to." I was one of the biggest critics of this series. But now, having seen the episodes, I will admit that it was all nitpicking. The action in this is pretty good, and the continuity is excellent. That makes up for it. The downside is Skeletor being turned into He-Man's answer to Batman's Joker. But it's Skeletor, at least they kept him in it, that's what counts. Him and Flogg are a pretty good team...or so Skeletor would like Flogg to think, anyway. ;-) While I still regard the original He-Man as the superior version, this version wasn't all that bad, if you take the time to watch it.
