UNLEASH THE MOTU GEEK IN YOU!!!!
First off, I have been watching these on Hulu and up till now the episodes have been in air-date order. Not these! I began watching Part 1 of an episode from next week. D’oh! Why can’t the episodes be in order. The DVDs have them in production order, as did Netflix when they had the license. This can be very frustrating.
“Witch and the Warrior” I agree was a solid episode. The only real issues I have were with He-Man rolling up things like carpet that don’t physically do that. Overall though, this was enjoyable, and I loved seeing Teela and Evil-Lyn together. I thought the interactions between them were great, and who doesn’t love the hero and villain teaming up.

“Evilseed” I watched on the “Best of” DVD since it was easily accessible and I didn’t have to bother with the commercials on Hulu. I agree with Mike here that Evilseed doesn’t do much for me as a villain. The highlight of the episode here is Skeletor. Kevin was right for giving him the power sword. Skeletor’s dialogue was so funny. It was just great. And I also had issue with He-Man picking up a huge block of ice and throwing it and saying it should be over Grayskull in 60 seconds. Come one. That was just ridiculous. I know He-Man throwing things is common for the series, but this was a bit much. The DVD bonus features made a point of mentioning the animator for the death of Evilseed scene. They also note that Evilseed was featured prominently in the 2002 series. Rating: 3.5 Orkos mainly for Skeletor’s contributions.
“Search for the VHO” This one actually turned out to be pretty good. I didn’t expect much from it, but it was pretty good. The Kracken was awesome, and he actually threw some punches. I also liked the horned cat creature and other designs used here. Rating: 4 Orkos
See to me it makes no sense to watch anything except for in air date order and this series is a prime example. If you watched it in production order you would see character appearances completely out of order to what they were supposed to be. Plus we wanted to watch this in the order you would have actually watched it had you been a kid in the 80s – The frustration is the fact that any sites or dvds decided to put them in production order which makes no sense
“The frustration is the fact that any sites or dvds decided to put them in production order which makes no sense” Exactly. I am not criticizing you for choosing air-date order. I just don’t know why they couldn’t have been put in that order on the DVDs, Netflix, etc. too. I would prefer to watch them on DVD but it’s kind of a hassle having to shuffle around and grab a different disc for a lot of the episodes when I’d rather put in a disc and watch it through.
Agree with you 100%
