As many of you will know, in 2010 I published The unofficial cartoon guide to He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. At 300+ pages the book features 700+ pieces of trivia, 460+ deleted scenes, 360+ examples of animation reuse, 380+ quotes, 50+ abandoned episodes, and a LOT more! It is the book that NO fan of the Filmation series can live without! BUY IT NOW!
As an incentive, here is my brief review and rating (as they appear in the book) for "She-Demon of Phantos"...
Although Skeletor is written perfectly in this episode, almost every other character is not. The biggest offender by far is He-Man, who is not only given some awful dialogue, but on numerous occasions uses his muscle instead of his mind to solve problems. Even the Sorceress seems aloof in her giving of information. The basic premise is good, but the way in which the action is staged borders on the ridiculous. Things happen during the course of the episode that make little sense; He-Man is trapped in a photanium body cell, at which point all the villains leave to tell Skeletor, prompting He-Man to escape. This is just one of many examples of how this episode fails to deliver. 3/10
