So I finally got to see something I've been wanting to see for a while, and I have to credit my friends over at the Smash Fiction Podcast for giving me a good excuse.
The He-Man and She-Ra Christmas Special. Man... that was something else. Can I say it was amazing? Well, yes. Yes I can. But it's definitely not Oscar amazing. It's just... I don't know. I hesitate to say this as a writer, but I lack the words.
It's delightfully campy. It's colorful and filled with all the deus ex Christmas you'd expect from an '80s Christmas special staring He-Man and She-Ra. If you like the new She-Ra on Netflix, well, you probably won't recognize this. Still, it's worth a watch.
From Skeletor trying to fight the urge to enjoy Christmas and be kind to He-Man and She-Ra communicating solely in puns. How does any of the plot come together? I mean, I just watched it and I'm not certain I could tell you. And that's just one more reason to experience it for yourself. Every Christmas movie watch list needs that "What the Hell?" entry, and this is it.
So do yourself a favor and give the clip below a quick glance. You can find the full thing on YouTube and other sites.
Keep your eyes open for my debut novel, The Paladin.
