At a guess, one of the copious number of commentators who seem highly invested in making the show fail, given Netflix famously don't release numbers.

Besides, only morons and toddlers rewatch stuff this quickly?

It is a show with very little rewatch value, being only 5 episodes.

Or you know, if you are really invested in a show. I lost count of how many times I rewatched She-Ra and the Princesses of Power. And to give some credits to the haters, Revelation is not a show that got me really invested.

I didn't hate it. but I didn't love it. It is an okay short half-show with great animation and voice acting and mediocre writing. I will watch the second half, but I don't have high expectations.

EDIT: Ok, there were something I did like a lot, and it was Evil-Lyn and Orko's side-plot.

That seems a bit unnecessarily antagonistic but I agree that most people don't immediately rewatch things that quickly, even if it is something they liked.

I believe he's referring to the show falling out of the top ten viewed shows you see every time you log into Netflix just a few days after release. It's not numerical ratings in the sense of it saying how many people are watching it but rather its relative popularity compared with other recent releases. Unless it behooves them like with a runaway hit ala Stranger Things, Netflix doesn't typically reveal actual watch numbers. Whether or not it's normal for a show to drop out of that a few days post release binging, I have no idea as I've never paid serious attention to it. Also, I don't believe rewatches contribute significantly to that ranking in the initial week of release but rather initial viewings but that's just my gut instinct and not some sort of double super secret insider info. Regardless, I'll watch the show next month.

I’ve watched Deep Space Nine (the best sci fi ever) perhaps 7 or 8 times, end to end. And that’s been out for decades.

The only things I immediately watch again have been the marvel shows. There tends to be a lot densely packed in there that you can easily miss first time around.

Otherwise the only shows that have been watched and rewatched over and over again are my going to bed shows. Shows I have seen so many times and are so light that I don't need to pay attention.

The issue isn't with rewatching things but revolves around rewatching them immediately. There are shows, several of witch Lance845 listed, and movies I have watched multiple times but none of which I finished then started right over again.

As I said about Part 1, I think its biggest problem is releasing it as half the binge model rather than either all at once or weekly.

This trailer is good, but spoils WAY WAY WAY too much in an effort to damage control part 1.

Seen a fair amount of talk suggesting that the 'spoilers' are (another) bait and switch. I'm personally still expecting a heel-face turn from Lynn. Or maybe just hoping that there's more to the villains than just chewing scenery for a boring power grab and lack of motivation at the level of power=kill everyone.

It mostly looks like nostalgia product placement (there were a lot of flyby cameos). With an extended intro from the Joker (again).

The odd thing is this is happening the same year as the other MotU reboot, which despite being Sentai He-man Beastwars with kids, it feels a fair bit deeper and less gimmicky.

That both follow behind the She-ra reboot (and on the same platform) and are a major step down in quality says a lot about the creators involved. A lot more thought, love and care went into She-ra, especially the psychology and motivations of all the major characters, and jettisoning any 'setting logic' that was based on 'just screw it, sell more toys.'

I was kind of ok with the new series, i mean yeah it was woke, but it didn't really tear down anyone, and that's the thing i hate about most woke revisionism, it's not about building up some people as much as it is tearing down, basically, white males.

I can't be anti woke, because i'm a lifelong trekker and TOS was woke AF. For that matter science fiction has been woke for a long long time too.

But that was classic woke, it was about inclusiveness and building up underrepresented people. Modern woke too often seems to be "Gak on whitey".

The real thing i've noticed is that back when woke was new and valid, it was dangerous. I mean a comic company was put out of business for doing one story that was very woke for its day.

https://www.cbr.com/judgment-day-ec-comics-code-authority/

That was an example of being woke when it was dangerous, now it's sort of dangerous not to be woke.

Anyway i'm looking forward to the new season, I mean from the preview it[s pretty obvious mark hamill is going to do skeletor just like the joker basically, same amoral philosophy, same maniacal laughter, etc. And yes, Evil Lynn's sudden but inevitable betrayal is clearly going to happen.

Super late to this party, but signed back up to Netflix because I thought it had Supernatural. It doesn’t, but I’ve paid my tenner so getting my monies worth.

This show is…..ok, I guess.

Not particularly gripping, but nothing particularly awful. Nearly finished the first half.

I was entertained by it. Different style from the first half, which is more episodic adventure of the week, while this is more one long continuous thing with a few brief lulls in the action. Skeletor is less Joker than I feared he would be. You can certainly hear the Joker in the tone there at times, but it’s usually different enough that it didn’t bother me. Lots of great one liners in there. Fisto and the other guy whose name I can’t recall or find off hand got done dirty.

I’ll stand by my opinion that this would have been. Lot better released differently though the first half is still forced and laden with pacing issues. Part 2 feels like the kind of pay off that was sorely lacking and while it’s best not to think too hard about any of it, it’s fun again while still having plot behind it. I’d be up for watching more if it’s done taking itself seriously.

On the second half, and I still don’t quite know what to make of it.

I mean, it’s quite good fun and I’m glad it’s not trying to be the original.

But somehow it just feels less than the sum of its parts.

Part 2 was much, much worse than part 1. Cringey dialogues, inappropriate quips, seemingly trying to skirt some line between being Avengers and being a modern Cartoon Network show for 10 year olds, at times self aware and at times not. Senseless plot with everybody switching character as required for the scene making for zero believability.

I think I just figured out what it is.

It’s a Fan Fiction. I don’t mean that in a nasty or inherently negative way. But it feels like Fan Fiction. The sort of thing that gets uploaded to YouTube. Competent enough, but more one person’s head canon.

The look of it is right. You can tell the team had a genuine love for the original toys - but it doesn’t really feel the full shilling,

If it was a fan fiction, I think folk might view it more favourably as an ambitious project.

But for a fully funded studio effort? It feels kinda cheap and rushed.

The funny part is that there is some legitimately good fan fiction out there, so while I think your assessment is correct, it's not even the GOOD kind of fan fiction. It's like the amateur hour of fan fiction with self inserts and the typical newbie writing pitfalls.

I think Netflix didn't do this series any favour by having the second part released right after the full season of Arcane, as the comparison is... striking.

I thought the first part was good enough for what it was, but this one was... not so.

Every single line from Randor is pretty cringey. Smiths love of characters explaining themselves to one another isn’t quite as bad as Part 1, but fanfic is certainly an apt description. Part 2 is thankfully just a lot less mean spirited about it.

Its made by Kevin Smith. The guy who wrote a terrible Batman comic (Cacophony) that is regularly criticized for being Kevin smiths fan fiction that somehow made it to print. So yeah. Fan fiction is an apt description.

I just finished part two. I am not a big He-Man person, but the trailer seem neat and I decided to give it a try. To be honest I am easily entertained so I enjoyed the entire series, though I think they would have been better served by a weekly release instead of having two parts of 5 episodes.
Motherboard seems neat so I am hopefully they get to do something with that. I am guessing that Motherboard is a separate thing created by this series?

I don’t know about Motherboard by name, but at the very end there that symbol is flashed above its head I recognized as Hordak, a big time He-Man/She-Ra villain.

Never watched the original show when I was a kid and watched the two parts back to back. I thought it was entertaining and pretty fun. It was very cheesy, but it was completely voluntary and very self aware. The animation was pretty darn good and so was the voice acting. All in all, I would give it a 7 out 10. The soundtrack has buried in my skull though and it did left me with one massive question:

How the feth can Skeletor actually kiss someone? He has no lips and no tongue (or any other facial organ). Then again, he hears, sees and talks without any problem so I guess it works on magic too.
