    Netflix's CGI He-Man show

    Yeah, Netflix has made two He-Man shows. One is Revelation, the other is a complete remake of the series starring younger versions of He-Man, Teela, Ram Man (now reimagined as female) and Man-At-Arms. Some thoughts (warning for spoilers): * I like the concept of . * The voice acting was...
