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 "The Region of Ice"...
From the moment He-Man and Orko enter Snake Mountain this episode shines, as the pair are played more like a comedy double act; their dialogue wonderfully playing off one another. Each and every action scene at Snake Mountain is cleverly thought out, with the villains given scenes just as entertaining as the heroes. Patrick Duncan succeeds greatly in crafting a story that effortlessly weaves action and comedy together with some terrific moments of character interaction. He-Man and Orko are the true stars of this episode. Even Snowflake seems to be enjoying herself. An episode that relies this heavily on physical comedy should not work, but this one does. Better than most. 8/10
