Review of Revelation part two.

https://www.ign.com/articles/masters...ix-kevin-smith

Adam's got more screen time, but is still largely in a support role, Evil-Lyn and Teela are the stars. Part two sets up a potential follow-on series with a 'new system' in place

Gamespots reveal spoils one major thing and it properly freaks them out

Spoiler:
Skeletor and Evil-Lyn get horny and make out

Wow, the comments section pissbabies are out in full force again, I see. Good grief. One guy brags about going on a 20-minute hate-rant about the show, as if that doesn't make him look like a f*cking lunatic. Nerds and Self-Awareness still don't mix!

Honestly sounds pretty good, I can't wait to see the stuff hinted at with Man-At-Arms (or just plain "Duncan", whichever; he was bad-ass in Part 1 so I hope he gets some more good stuff in Part 2, especially if Teela does in fact become the new Sorceress). There's a bunch of stuff hinted at in there that I can't wait to see. But that's me.

To be perfectly fair about characters' inconsistent power levels... that's not new for this franchise anyways. In one Filmation episode, He-Man might struggle to lift a really big boulder, or shrug off a half-dozen guys dogpiling him... and then in another he might flip an entire mountain like it's a nickel.

So the inconsistency is consistent. Whatever, that's fine.

I just hope we get a disc release soon because I only got Netflix for this show and I don't wanna keep paying for it.

I hope part two is as good as reviews are saying, but from what I'm reading, they don't stick the landing and my fears about Randor and Marlena being distant are validated, so this probably won't be for me either. And that's OK. I got my fix of good He-Man with the CG show, I don't need a poorly written faux 'sequel series' that deconstructs everyone to plug that gap anymore.

Potential leaks from 4chan

Spoiler:
Marlena and Randor's marriage didn't survive the loss of Adam.

Teela is indeed gay, but she does not get with Andra or Adam, instead it's implied Evil-Lyn has a crush on her, and hints at a love story that'll blossom between both the Sorceresses of Grayskull in season two.

Evil-Lyn has a love scene with Skeletor.

The final battle is a total anti-climax.

Despite Teela not being his endgame, Adam does have a love interest, it's Illena.

The ending hints to the arrival of Hordak.

Skeletor's daughter is set up as potentially appearing


We'll find out in 24 hours if these are legit.

Pirate it. If it's continued woke $#!(, don't give them the clicks. WHY would anyone do that if they don't like the presumed direction?

If it turns out to be great, go back and binge watch it on Netflix and give them the financial reward. It's that simple.

Tomorrow.

It's awesome that you have so much time to waste that you're gonna spend it on something you already don't like, just so you can tell everyone how much you don't like it for a while longer yet.

Honest question: You hated the first half, why do you care about the second half? I hate Marvel movies, so I don't watch them, problem solved. I don't get the whole "hate-watch" mentality. I personally got sh*t to do. If I don't like something I just avoid it.

I know, I know, "Internet Law" says you HAVE to do the whole "hate-watch-and-rant" thing. I just don't think it makes any sense. I think it's perhaps THE biggest waste of time. But hey, whatever.

Something that won't make you even more aggravated, would be my suggestion. Like "literally anything else".

Like I will never, EVER be bored enough to watch Power Rangers. But I'm also not ever going to be bored enough to go around ranting about how much I hate it, either. There's nothing positive to come from that on either side of it.

If you were planning on watching it, I'd assume you also have Netflix. Pretty sure there are other things on there to watch tomorrow, things that won't annoy you.

Not your Dad, just a suggestion.

Also, a source I trust just confirmed to me that those 4Chan "spoilers" are fake. "Ridiculously" fake.

So we'll see!

He also said all leaks bar one were fake. Didn't say which one was legit though.

And I see I'm getting rail-roaded over on the .Org just for saying I don't buy toys or video games, I probably shouldn't have said it was 'silly', but with the attitudes and mentalities of those who indulge in these 'hobbies', can you honestly blame me?

Investment in a long running franchise. Not just time, but money and headspace for a beloved icon. I also like to pick stuff apart and hate dishonesty.

So I turn Netflix on and it says 'coming Tuesday', it is Tuesday... It must mean later?
Anyway, all ready to watch at some point later or tomorrow when it shows up.

I used to be all in on the "If you don't like, don't buy or watch" mindset, but how can anything improve or receive fair critique if all it has to show for it is a glad-handed nonsensical echo chamber of douchebag yes-men?[/CM Punk]

Two episodes in, not bad so far, still some teething problems and we could do without THAT love scene, don't know what the kids will make of that.

Spoiler:
Duncan and Sorceress are a couple, I've wanted that since MYP

Oh now it's up, well I now have to wait till later as I have been watching with my youngest, means there will be more time to watch properly.

I'm thinking that love scene is the icky one referred to in the spoilers? yeah I don't think too many would have been shipping that

The first form of critique is how you use your money (or your time!). Money are the best way to tell an author or a company you like or dislike their products. If you spend your money or your time (views) for something you don't like, you are nonetheless encouraging the production of more contents of that kind.
