The divide between what people actually enjoy and what the Leftist orthodoxy is trying to force people to enjoy has become ever so apparent with the release of She-Ra And The Princesses of Power on Netflix. The cartoon reboot of the popular 1980s spin-off of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, managed to score a 100% on Rotten Tomatoes from critics while barely scoring 40% from normal viewers.
If you visit the Rotten Tomatoes page youll see that the show currently has a 40% rating from users while 100% of the critics have given it a high score.
If you click through to read the critics review, youll see a bunch of familiar outlets; IGN, The Daily Dot, The Mary Sue, Den of Geek, Entertainment Weekly.
Yes, Netflixs reboot got sterling reviews from a bunch of websites that push the SJW agenda. Its almost like state-run media claiming that the state-appointed dictator is a fantastic person.
Vivian Kane from The Mary Sue made it known that the show was designed from the ground up by its lesbian creative director for the tumblr crowd, writing
[ ] if you watched the trailer and were hoping the show would be full of female empowerment, body positivity, racial diversity, and queer rep, youre in luck! This is 100% the She-Ra of your Tumblr dreams, in all the best ways. The show was made for fanfic and cosplay. (Oh, the cosplay is going to rule so hard.)
At least two of the Princesses are presented as being in a romantic relationship, but theres also a ton of inclusive, loving queer coding, especially between Catra and Adora. They revel in the friends-to-enemies-to-lovers trope. I mean, the lovers part may not be explicitly presented in their case, but its not denied either. Theres even an entire episode titled Princess Prom that features a dance sequence and a gorgeous magenta tuxedo, after which I honestly dont understand how anyone could not be on team Catradora.
This show joins the litany of other shows that try to induce parents to allow their kids to see heroes turning away from traditional values in order to succumb to the Liberal agenda, one in which there is no future for your children.
While Entertainment Weeklys Darren Franich tries to convince parents that the show is safe for kids, the propaganda was too much for Franich to ignore gloating about, writing
She-Ras a safe-for-kids show that never even gets around to explicit romance, but Stevenson and her collaborators take the fundamental glitter-camp style as an opportunity to fit some impressively complicated emotions into the undercurrents of the Adora-Catra relationship. Undercurrents, hell. Theres a pivotal moment where Adora dances with Catra, heroine in a magenta-fuschia dress, villainess rocking a sangria-colored tuxedo with an unwrapped bowtie, club lights around them casting a particular Bowie shade of pink, and then Catra dips Adora wow!!
Yes, She-Ra has been touched by a lesbian.
Sites like Collider also joined in on the fray, attempting to convince the normal streamer and television goer that She-Ra was worth watching.
The Left-wing media and the NPCs that hang on to their every word regurgitate all the talking points you would expect from Communists, normal people were quick to point out the flaws of Netflixs fatuous reboot.
If you check the user reviews, youll see that most people are calling out the show for being little more than a vehicle in which to push the agenda of the creators.
Heck, even a feminist had to rail on the show for not being very good. Alissa D wrote
So I wanted to give this show its due process and watch it all the way through before I criticized. Just based on the trailer alone, I really wasnt impressed. But I wanted to try anyway, because on the surface, a predominantly-female and diverse cast could never be a bad thing. And this case it isnt either those calling it sjw propaganda are weak and natural selection is coming for you.
THAT SAID this show simply falls flat on its face. Feminists are often accused of having a checklist of things we tick off then call a show good. And, just what Ive gathered online, that seems to be the case with She-ra. And as a queer feminist, to me those things body diversity, racial diversity, female empowerment, casual queerness (Im specifically referencing the princess prom episode) are all well and good, but they should still be executed WELL with a story that grabs you, good animation, great voice acting and direction, and compelling characters.
She-ra, for me, doesnt have that.
Even third-wave feminists dont like the show, which is funny because it seems to mirror what anti-SJWs have said about it. As summed up by The Quartering, he didnt mince words by calling it Woke garbage.
However, you would probably never think that the show is bad based on all the adulation heaped upon the Netflix reboot of She-Ra from all the social media users. Any criticisms of the show from promoting lesbianism to kids, to promoting obesity as a good thing, to promoting the emasculation of straight males is immediately dogpiled by Twitter and Tumblr users who are unhappy with their own lives.
As you can imagine, the thread kind of goes on and on and on.
Nevertheless, the majority of normal people have spoken, and they dont like the new She-Ra.. not one bit.
My 9 year old daughter stumbled upon it, gave it a solid 5 minutes and dumped it. She resumed her Sharknado marathon.
Thus, my in-house expert gave it the thumbs down.
Add to this the reboot of the newest Star Trek franchise which has unenthused their fans by going in the same direction. CBS & Viacom had hoped that ST:Discovery would be a driving force for the new CBS All ACCESS service but that seems to have crashed against the rock of fan antipathy if not hostility. Apparently this has also caused such financial problems that even the Star Trek movies are losing their stars.
Another example of the social/entertainment war being waged between the perverted and normal people. Normal people need to push back even harder against this radical minority trying to “normalize” destructive madness. Netflix is firmly in the enemy camp.
It’s a show designed for 24 year olds that still want to act like they are 11, so the show is full of kid characters, drawn in that annoying “Cal-arts” style, engaged in clumsy humor and randomness, that is supposed to be an “adventure” show.
Contrast that to She-Ra and He-Man from the 80s, that was a kids show, with adult characters, drawn in a non-frivolous style, where the cast engaged in serious adventures against defined bad guys, where a real moral lesson was learned at the end of each episode.
It was for kids to admire the virtues that would come with being responsible, mature, moral, selfless, and heroic adults....and also to sell toys.
“She-Ras a safe-for-kids show”
No, no it’s not. If it has blatant hints at homo, it is NOT “safe”.
Neither are movies/shows safe that push The Environment(TM), Diversity(TM) and all their agendas, or those that constantly engage in potty/sex humor. Which means these days, 99% “kids” FAIL.
As a (some what) mature adult I throught Netflix did a good job with Voltron...but it’s safe to say I’m not exactly the target audience for She-Rah
Those were among the worst cartoons of all time.
It’s hard the believe anyone would reboot them.
But people in the business today have zero creativity which make sense because they’re only interested in socio-political radical propaganda.
Why would they create anything?
Even the beyond absurd but entertaining MASK tried to inject a little history here and there or so I read.
Such super smart villains with zero sense. Figure out the kid with the robot is that keeps showing up and voila, the head of MASK.
In my opinion cartoons of the 80s were generally garbage because they had insipid brain numbing messages. The older adventure cartoons from the 70s & 60s were better because they were all about the action with no robotic teaching, just entertainment for kids.
This she-ra garbage sounds like the worst ever, just lib messages with no redeeming anything.
Your post is the only thing that makes sense here.
The original article had me confused, because for a second...
... And let me channel my “vanilla sky” Tom cruise scream...
I thought we were talking about A F***IN CARTOON!”
Toward the end of the 80s, animation started going downhill.
A few exceptions:
Pinky And The Brain
Batman / Superman TAS
Sounds like a toxic mixture!
“Even third-wave feminists...”
There’s such a thing as third-wave feminists? What the Hell is that?
Man, I am checked out of this culture. Happily.
Get Woke, Go Broke.
They need to bring back the original politically incorrect Johnny Quest.
Yeah most of those were decent, maybe because the main point wasn’t to sell toys. The writing was better as well. The Hanna Barbera action cartoons of the mid-late 60s like Jonny Quest and Space Ghost didn’t sell toys on a big scale, but the writing was very simple.
If they chowed Haji charming a snake now there would be mass outrage because of the cultural insensitivity and micro-aggressions. Pence kind of looks like Race Bannon, ha.
