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 "Evil-Lyn's Plot"...
Although we are introduced to the Widgets, the first quarter of this episode is nothing special in terms of storytelling. However, when Evil-Lyn reveals her plan to Skeletor at Snake Mountain the episode really begins to shine. In their scenes together Squinch's innocence is played perfectly against the wicked beauty of Evil-Lyn. The story manages to run two plots side by side at this point with He-Man racing to stop Skeletor, and Squinch making the effort to redeem himself. Paul Dini knows how to write classic episodes and this time does it by introducing the Widgets, using Evil-Lyn to her full potential and providing an even match between He-Man and Skeletor. 8/10
