On Friday, Cartoon Network showed the pilot movie for their new He-Man
series, to start regular running later this month.  The animation
production values are higher than the old show.  The writing wasn't too
bad, either, though it's hard not to cringe at the obligatory "I am H-Man,
defender of Eternia!"  It's a remake, not a sequel.  Even so, most of the
old characters are back with only minor changes.

Are you involved in any way with this show?  If not would you have any
desire to be?  Would you even want to watch it?  :-D

it last night in my sleep.  Apparently I used gindrogac - highly unstable!
I put a button on it, yes?  I wish to press it, but I'm not sure what will
happen if I do..." - Gune

No, I'm not involved with the new show.  I watched the first ep out of
curiosity, and it felt like a high school reunion of people you never thought
you'd see again.

Funnily enough, while at comiccon, I went by the booth advertising the new
He-Man series and mentioned to one of the folks there that I used to write for
the show.

Not having any idea who I was, he looked at me with something akin to pity in
his eyes, as if this was the one big thing I'd ever done and I had come by to
relive that moment of accomplishment...and he asks if I did anything after 
that, and I said Babylon 5...he didn't have a clue what it was and said, "So,
did that work out okay for you?"

If he hadn't been sitting in a chair I would'e hit him with it.
