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 "Evilseed"...
This episode is a triumph throughout. Not only is the dialogue first class, but the visuals in this episode by Bob Arkwright are at times creatively stunning. Barney Cohen writes a superb Skeletor, crafting a villain that is evil, without being over the top. We get to see how his mind works as the plants begin to take over Eternia, and he patiently waits for his opportunity to strike. As for Evilseed, there are not that many guest villains in this series that make as big an impact as he does. In truth, all that Evilseed does during the episode is stand around; but his dialogue, voice, and look are fantastic. A traditional story that unites good and evil, but that is executed beautifully. 8/10
