A brief review #050 - "Temple of The Sun"

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 "Temple of The Sun"...

The plot of this is episode is relatively simple. However, the fantastic character interaction between the heroes, and exciting and well-directed action scenes throughout the story, help make it an instant hit. The episode effortlessly mixes mystery with drama and action with comedy. Patrick Duncan somehow manages to turn average scenes with a familiar cast of characters into some of the most memorable scenes in the series. An episode in which Cringer can justifiably stop his transformation into Battle Cat with a logical and amusing argument has to be good. This episode is not one of the series' best, but it does have moments of high drama and laugh out loud comedy. 7/10

Now, may I ask; what is YOUR rating?
