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 "Colossor Awakes"...
So much happens in this one episode than happens in two or three other episodes. The script is as confusing as Skeletor's random attacks on the Royal Palace. There appears to be two or three individual stories taking place and, at times, it is hard to know which plot we are following. It appears that this confusion hits the writer too, as late in act two Skeletor and Beast Man are heading to Castle Grayskull, yet in the very next scene they are attacking the Royal Palace once more. Even though the story features the heroes and villains travelling all over the planet with no sense of direction, the sub-plot with Colossor is enough to save the episode from being a convoluted disaster. 6/10
