A lonely figure...

No video post today; but hopefully FOUR cartoon posts will entertain you all! :)

"The Price of Freedom" from She-Ra's season one is easily one of the greatest episodes of the entire He-Man and She-Ra series, mainly for the fact that the heroes actually lose their battle against evil! One of the best scenes in the episode is not He-Man being defeated by the Evil Horde, but his self-sacrifice allowing the villagers of Dryl to escape as he holds up a collapsing mine! She-Ra desperately searching for the most powerful man in the universe finds our hero, now a lonely figure, supporting the mine roof. Back in the days of the Episode Review Website my partner in crime Zadoc Angell once said it appears as if He-Man is in deep mediation. Bob Forward compliments the scene as She-Ra quietly whispers "Adam" bringing the whole brother and sister reality into a new light.

Fantastic to see a Blog entry taken from this classic episode, and I hope to see many, many more entries based on "The Price Of Freedom," in the future ... Way to go, James! :)

This was a nice little scene, with She-Ra coming to He-Man's rescue, and He-Man thanking She-Ra for helping him out. :)

Yes, I remember that observation about the way He-Man is sitting ... I also like the way the ("conveniently placed") wooden beams, that She-Ra uses to relieve He-Man, are featured as part of the background, rather than an animated overlay, for this shot ... Another cool cave-like setting for the He-Man and She-Ra series!

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...

Yes! One of the most original episodes because we rarely see the good lose the battle. And this is the "heart" of the rebellion ... keep fighting, stay united. And this is also reflected in twins: is very emotional to see She-ra worried about her brother, see Swift Wind with a tear and She-ra calling He-man as "Adam"...to her beloved brother. Is a combination of emotions. Thank you for sharing this picture!

Zadoc's comment sounds pretty spot-on. He-Man does appear to be concentrated like in deep meditation.

It's really great use of She-Ra referring to her brother as Adam.
I don't remember if the characters overall talked to He-Man, while using "Adam". I think Duncan did so in the "Arena" :)

That's probably one of my most favorite moments I wish they did that more:)
