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 Curse of the Spellstone"...
This episode has many good things going for it; best of all are the two storylines that run concurrently. We feel a real sense of danger as those in the Royal Palace are threatened by one of the best plot devices in the series in the Creeping Horak. And the action-packed adventures of the Heroic Warriors as they battle Skeletor's Hover Robots and the Fire People is executed to perfection. At times the script is a tad haphazard, switching locations just as we are getting settled. There is little to no character writing in this episode, but that does not matter. This episode revels in the fact that it is an entertaining action-adventure episode. 7/10
