She-Ra and the Princesses of Power - Roll With It TV review

“Roll With It” is an amusing episode from the Second Season of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power as a planning session to take a tower from the Horde becomes an out-of-control table-top roll-playing adventure with each character offering “help” that gets further and further away from reality. There are two running gags in the various scenes shown. First, Bow (Marcus Scribner) manages to die in every last one of them. And second, Adora discovers that her friends have very distinct (and often quite humorous) impressions of Catra (AJ Michalka).

She-Ra and the Princesses of Power - System Failure television review

“System Failure” introduces my favorite of all of the princess supporting characters showcased in the First Season of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power. Unlike the other princesses, Princess Entrapta (Christine Woods) exhibits no special powers (unless you count her wild hair acting as an extra pair of hands when needed). Instead, the manic Entrapta offers a character thoroughly invested in technology, experimentation, and robots, which gets her in trouble here when some incompatibility between her robots and First Ones’ technology leads to all the robots in her maze-like kingdom going berserk. When the virus infects She-Ra (Aimee Carrero) as well, it falls on her friends to save the day. Entrapta’s experiments here, and later in the series, show us that the line between magic and technology is blurry on Etheria which relies on both for its very survival.

She-Ra and the Princesses of Power - The Sword television review

Originally introduced as a spin-off to a television series created for the sole purpose of selling Masters of the Universe toys, She-Ra gets a reboot in the new series from DreamWorks Animation and Netflix. With more of an anime feel, She-Ra and the Princesses of Power introduces us to the orphaned Adora (Aimee Carrero) as the most naive solider in history whose eyes are opened to the Horde‘s evils when she ventures out beyond the Fright Zone and meets her first princess. Although Hordak is present in cameo roles, the main villains for Adora are her former friend Catra (AJ Michalka) who remains with the Horde and the evil sorceress Shadow Weaver (Lorraine Toussaint) who hopes to bring Adora back where she belongs. After discovering the Sword of Protection and seeing the Horde’s rampant destruction, Adora is forced to leave behind her best friend and set out on a new path as the protector of Etheria.
