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 "Like Father, Like Daughter"...
Right from the beginning, this episode creates a good sense of atmosphere, but it is one lacking in character emotion. After the brief moment when Teela loses her cool with Prince Adam, the cast fall into a script where they appear to be devoid of any kind of personality. Even though this episode is laced with an emotional plot, that of a daughter disobeying her father, the characters are reactionary to the scenery around them. Some of the dialogue even sounds as if it is the first time that the voice actors are recording their lines. That said, the non-stop, almost never-ending action when the heroes enter the region of Stardica is enough to keep us interested. 6/10
