    Cool!
    A new He-Man television show by Kevin Smith !!!
    This looks way cool.
    And the animation being made by who made the Castlevania animated series is another thing that makes this a must watch new television show.

    Kinda sad they won't cross paths ... and not much of a fan of the old series continuity or Smith. " The most metal designs" has me hopeful, though! Netflix has done a good job with their kids 'toons as a of late, so I'll give this one a chance.
    I don't see a crossover with She-Ra. The new She-Ra show is produced by DreamWorks while this new masters of the universe will be made by Mattel TV. They most likely use the classic She-Ra. I doubt they will be able to use her while the DreamWorks show is still airing.

    So first thing he'll likely do, cast himself and Mewes as the voice of some random characters.
    Grizzlor & Leech? Who?

    The original audience for this are well into our late 30s and 40s now. I'm curious as to what sort of storytelling sensibility will be put in play here.

    I mean it's He-Man so I'm watching it, but that "hook" seems kind of odd to me. Unless they really mean stuff like "ever wonder what Zodak's deal was?" Or "ever notice whenever Clawful appeared he was opposite Orko? What's their beef?" stuff like that.
    The whole "following continuity of the old show" line is so some forty-yr olds won't get their panties in a bunch anticipating some kind of "that's not MY He-Man" reboot. They're just trying to get ahead of that nonsense.

    I do hope they follow up on Adam's mom being from earth though...

The original series, like most 80's cartoons, was very episodic and outside a cool vehicle, weapon or new character almost nothing carried on from one episode to another plot wise. I mean sure, we never saw the final show down between He-Man and Skelitor but who really expects to see that?

    As for Smith as a serialized writer I mostly agree, but I recently re-read his Daredevil and found that to be pretty excellent so if we got that Smith it'd be decent but I suppose that's not really a huge deal as his role seems more of a steward than writer.
    "Left off" could simply mean coming up with some sort of finale to the original show. Skeletor somehow gets the power of GreySkull, He-Man somehow defeats him once and for all, etc etc.

    40 minutes long, but somewhere in there Smith basically says Teela will be the hero/audience surrogate.

    Oh and Kevin Smith is 100% a writer on this show not just a showrunner. He already turned in his script for episode one. He talls all about it in Fatman on Batman

    Edit. I mean fatman beyond
