New He-Man reboot has TOO MUCH LADIES in it; angry He-Babies review bomb the show on Rotten Tomatoes, wiping away tears

What’s going on?

So the angry boys of the internet are angry again, this time over Netflix’s reboot of the Masters of the Universe show, directed by Kevin Smith. What happens when the angry boys get mad about movies and TV shows? They all go to Rotten Tomatoes and this happens to the audience score:

Yep. Despite the high rating from professional reviewers, the angry boys have pushed the audience score lower than that of the He Man and She Ra Christmas Special from 1985.

So what exactly are the angry boys angry about here? Well, without giving away any spoilers, He Man is sort of sidelined in the first half of the new series, which dropped last night on Netflix. And instead we get a lot of Teela, who is some sort of cartoon lady, if you can imagine such a thing. A cartoon lady? We want cartoon man back!

Also Teela has a black lady friend who might be more than just a friend if you know what I mean. (Having not watched the show I’m not sure I even know what I mean.)

Over on IMDb, “fans” of the show are pounding out their own reviews expressing their objections to this terrible lady-centric change to a beloved show that in its original form was basically a half-hour infomercial for Masters of the Universe action figures.

Someone called AngryBaneling sputtered:

I cannot even begin to describe the level of disregard and disrespect shown toward the MOTU franchise and its fans. …

Just what is going on in the western entertainment industry? … Are men not allowed to be heroes anymore? Do we have to prop up female characters at the expense of male characters just so a couple of nobodies on social media can feel good about it?

They’ve resurrected another franchise just so they can debase it in front of a crowd. Hope the paycheck was worth it, Kevin Smith.

Yeah, take that Kevin Smith!

Someone called Jackie_Viera added:

This show is sheer woke culture crap that’s happening now in films and TV now. The trailer did a fine job in bait and switch for people who were nostalgic enough for the original 80s show. This was meant to be about He-Man and his adventures. Instead, [SPOLIER REMOVED] its Teela to sort things out.

Teela? What the hell?

If you wanted to make a show on a strong female character, you had She-ra and I would’ve been fine with it. Instead, this show has ruined a beloved childhood cartoon of mine.

Yeah, this is what happened when they rebooted She-Ra.

Another “fan” decided the show should be called She-Man : Masters of the Social Justice-verse

They completely sandbagged He-Man so they could instead focus on a more female centric story… Then why even call it Masters of Universe?…

They want to recapture the target audience by excluding them and pushing them aside for a new gender obsessed social justice demographic that would never watch this show in the first place?.

They have their crap , we have ours. …

There are dozens more “reviews” like these. Here are snippets from some of them.

None of this happened by happenstance. It was all intentional. They had a message to push and they did push it.

no one told us this was going to be a show about Teela and her girlfriends. If you want to make that show, please go ahead, but don’t hide it behind another name, that’s being a coward and a liar. If we pretend this is okay, then we’ll get more garbage remakes like we’re having since the Ghostbusters. Oh, and I’m laughing hard at the “oMg thESE iNtErNeT TroLLs hAtE wOmEn!!”, imagine taking your kid to watch the good Star Wars and they play it The Last Jedi instead.

Boy i am sick and tired of this age we are in. You had She-Ra! You could make a series about her and we would watch it with fun but no! You had to ruin He-Man with your meaningless woke culture. Yesterday was my birthday and i became 40.

I am perfectly fine with LGBT community. But this project is pretty badly produced and delivered.

If you are a He-man fan then do not watch this show. Pure wokeism at its finest. He-man got cancelled in 2021.

I will give it 2 because of good animations but -8 because He-man is side charater and because of false advertising. I was happy now i m sad.

They literally take any show that would be good and shove wokeism-lgbtq down your throat and destroy every damn show, just let kids be kids for God sake.

How does it feel to sell out your soul for a cash grab and to give Netflix board members, producers and executives along with the Obamas what they want and sacrifice art and nostalgia for this woke garbage?

Yes, angry nerds. You’ve finally convinced me. The Obamas are the one wrecking your favorite cartoons by putting too much ladies in them. I should have known. It’s all a vast conspiracy.

As He Man himself might ask: What’s going on?

And if you’re 40 and are having fits over a cartoon aimed at people 20-30 years younger than you — mostly CHILDREN — then you are a sad little man-boy who needs to evaluate where you’ve failed in life.

Worth noting that while these guys are sad, and their complaints laughable, the new cartoon in question is in fact aimed at 40-somethings, specifically those who watched the original as children.

I can’t help but think that “Gaytina” sounds like some kind of mixed drink.

I remember that mostly because I know Dolph Lundgren is in it.

Watched the first three episodes. Episode 1 was OK, episode 2&3 were better. Favorite part so far was Evil-Lyn giving the solid advice to not pine after dangerous men. Not that the ladies take it, mind you (“what was I expecting from someone named Evil-Lyn?”). Teela still seems to be hooked up on Adam/He-Man.

I love Golden Gaytime.

@Allandrel
That makes much more sense.

Not all cartoons are automatically aimed at kids.

They also managed to make Orko less annoying than in the original, and actually sort of poignant.

@Moon Custafer: I watched the entire show and was not prepared to actually like Orko. And yet that happened. Skeletors incel justification doesn’t make sense but I figure he is trolling. Yeah, solid 7/10. Still don’t know where these jackasses get the impression that Teela is gay. The hair and muscles and not pining hard enough for a man I guess.

Yeah, especially with Evil-Lynne *right there*

I’m really wondering how much of this is organic and how much is astroturfing by Netflix. Advertising your product by actively pissing off these types and letting them give you free advertising by complaining about whatever you’re trying to market is just a standard marketing strategy now. Even freaking Nascar does it.

I got curious, so I watched the first two episodes. It has a bit of the style from back then, but less annoying (agree on the Orko comments). I love the stupid one-liners. That’s very much in the style of kid’s cartoons that I remember. It’s quite decent, so far. Good use of original characters, without letting it get in the way of the story.

Teela taking the main role kinda makes sense. After all, He-Man suffers from much the same problem as Superman; he isn’t actually that interesting. He’s the title character but he’s not a main character. Focusing on someone more normal is a good writing choice, I think.

I’d say 7 out of 10, so far. Good setup. Enough to make me want to watch one more episode, at least, so job done.

I came across an extremely delightful review of the show from someone who isn’t a man-baby. Spoiler-riffic, but contains such gems as:

—————————
Good GOD I just got to type the words “sickly, traumatized Orko.” Sometimes this gig loves me back.

Plan your shit better, Mer-Man.

Let me repeat that: the green-and-yellow-striped cowardly tiger is the most emotionally mature character on the show.
If you’re going to make a choice like that, I’m coming with you on your quest, television show.

Believe me, I’m just as confused by all these sentences as you are.

—————————–

All of which punctuate a very serious essay/analysis from someone who is a big fan of the old series, has an MFA in creative writing and works as an editor.

It made me actually LOL, and there may have been some feels too.

As usual, the comments are not so good, except for the guy who explains how Filmation was always super-SJW, including the factoid that the founder’s dad claimed to have punched a young Hitler.

That’s right, fascist man-babies, your precious original show was exec produced by a Jewish guy who was raised by a Hitler-puncher.

GSS Ex-Noob: IIRC the writing team of the original show had feminist ideals that they also tried to implement into the show. So yes, definitely what these idiots would call SJWs.

In related man baby new, GI.Joe creator Joe Hama has to tell them that Snake-Eyes race doesn’t matter as they protest him being non-white in the new movie.

I don’t care about the man-babies’ whining about GI Joe characters, but that Henry Fielding is one fine looking chap. Be a shame to put a mask on him.

Hey boys — you might be able to get a lady to attend the movie with you on the strength of Fielding’s hotness!

..A ninja character? Created by a Japanese-American comics legend? Being ASIAN? BLASPHEMY AND HERESY!!! Unhand our precious little childhoods!

(And I promise you that no one’s ever rounded up the family to gather around the television set screaming, “WHITE DUDE ON TV!”)
