Masters of the Universe & She-Ra – Now on Netflix Streaming

For those of you with Netflix, you can now watch any episode of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe or She-Ra via streaming. That’s right, any episode.

Kinda makes me wonder if I should start a regular episode review feature…

  • Awesome! I believe its on Hulu too. An episode review feature would be great. I've been wanting to go back and revisit these episodes (again).

    Its been some time since the dvds were released by BCI/Eclipse. I want to say I heard that the complete MOTU will be released in one box set soon.

    Maybe as a weekly (bi-weekly?) feature, for those that want to follow along watching the episodes as you're reviewing them.

  • I would love to see you review these Poe. It would also be nice if you had a corresponding thread on your forum so your Poesters could comment more in depth on your reviews too.

    I'd love to see this.

  • I was watching them last night, it was easier than flipping through the dvd sets to find the episode i wanted.I can finally watch the She-ra's i never saw as a kid…Since she was a girl i didn't watch her cartoon..lol weird huh?

  • Awesome. I had been pretty peeved that only She-Ra was available for instant view and He-Man was by DVD only. This just made my day.

    All us MOTU fans should hope that this is the sign of bigger things to come with the 30th Anniversary about roll out in the new year.

  • I had known about She-Ra a while back. (My daughter really likes that show.) He-Man was a recent discovery for me, though.

    I didn't know about Bravestarr. I may have to check it out.

    I second that movement. I'd be thrilled to read your episode reviews of the Filmation stuff, Poe.

  • I remember buying a DVD for my brother a few years ago of the "best of" He-Man and it was all so homoerotic and terrible.

    I tried to watch the first episode tonight while my GF played on her laptop, but about halfway through I was just so embarassed I turned it off. It's just terrible. In a lot of old cartoons there's moments that make you cringe, but they can still be enjoyed on some level… He-Man is just sort of nothing but cringe worthy moment after cringe worthy moment.

    And watching it now, you can see why it so clearly has a huge gay fanbase these days.

    I'll stick to my reruns of Thundarr.

  • Watching this old series rap…er, I mean ravaged my childhood and killed my nostalgia.

    I should’ve stuck with the biased memories.

  • No offense, but I caught an old episode on some weird channel while on vacation and it was just unwatchably terrible. My wife even commented on it’s awfulness.

    Any reviews would have to be done in a mocking way or by a 6 year old.

  • Ion television has been playing episodes of he man late night, and last night I watched 5 minutes of one.
    It was awful. As a kid I loved the figures, didn't really watch the cartoon. Because it sucked. Seriously it was really bad.

    *edit: and everything Newt said as well.

  • @ jumper11:

    REALLY?! I'm always watching random movies and re-runs of Criminal Minds and Without A Trace on ION. I haven't seen He-Man on there yet. I'll have to check the TV Guide GUI. I'd get a real kick out of watching that on broadcast.

    Agreed. My girlfriend and I ended up "MST3K-ing" 3 episodes as otherwise they were pretty maddeningly dated. I think this is why I loved the MYP series so much– the same concepts but a much more serious tone.

  • Yep Tear- it's he man and she ra back to back at around 12 or so. Oh and also the bumwipe fake ghostbusters.

  • Gotta go with Newt, Flash III & the others. I tried to watch these a few days ago when they popped-up on the instant, but I couldn't get through it. Maybe I'll give them another shot one of these nights after the family goes to bed. I have no problem watching some of the other Filmation stuff; I love the Groovie Ghoulies, Fraidy Cat, M.U.S.H., etc.

    PS. I forgot He-Man has a friggin echo on everything he says. Very weird. Must be all that "power" he keeps talking about.

  • @ jumper11:

    Hey, the live action show was on back in the mid 70's with my homeboy Larry Storch. So they ARE the original Ghostbusters. Not the best ones by any stretch of the imagination, but they are the original.

    I don't know anything about the live show. This is the cartoon with the monkey and the car, chitty chitty bang bang. Is that based on the show?

  • Maybe I'm in denial or just looking thru nostalgic Coke bottle glasses, but I still enjoy the Filmation series. Sure its cheesy and maybe a tad homoerotic, but its still fun. It reminds me of being a kid and watching in my living room on the floor, or when I went to work with my mother and watched it on the little tv we brought with us… If anything now I'm a little more critical of the rampant use of stock animation, some of the terrible voices (sorry Lou) and the generic SFX.
