You asked for me, Leena.

One of the best action scenes ever to grace the She-Ra series occurs in the season one episode "Just Like Me". In order to save Leena, She-Ra must walk a thin rope, in high heels, and position herself below Leena who is hanging for her life on a broken bridge. This is the perfect scene for director Tom Tataranowicz! He shows Leena clinging for life above, with She-Ra below, her hair flapping in the wind and her feet standing on the weak support of a string. Even further below She-Ra we can see the far-off river. This type of direction is usually reserved for feature films, not typical bridge scenes in cartoons!

Though I must say, Bow is useless! He just stands there arguing with a little girl whose about to fall to her death! lol

Linda Gary's outstanding voice acting for Leena was well executed, for this scene, especially when she cries out for help ... Wonder how many more times Leena would have stated to herself, "She-Ra wouldn't be scared," had the bridge not collapsed. :)

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...

Fantastic scene!
Thank you for posting it. You need to post more Tom-goodness on your blog.

Leena was a bit annoying but this scene played out really well. :)
