    Stevenson honors the basic plot layout and the birthday-cake radiance of old-school She-Ra. But the original cast of characters has been casually diversified, and newly illustrated to boldly suggest human beings have all shapes and sizes.

    oh, and if you are trying to ruin it for your kids, yammering on about identity politics, entrapta would like to take a look at your brain!

    The controversy of the tomboy nature of the lead character or the raging at the shows political correctness shows a tone-deafness to the original series, as well as the need for such shows in this day and age.

Not even she liked it. For my part, I found it really tried to shove its tiresome ideology down your throat in every scene to the point I wanted to scream. We switched over to Bob's Burgers quite quickly.
