I still can't believe that She-Ra: Princess of Power is actually out on DVD. I absolutely loved this show as a little girl. I pre-ordered this from Amazon as soon as I found out that it was due to be released.
The picture quality is great. The packaging is very attractive and inviting. It comes with 2 collectible art cards & a booklet that lists each episode & it's summary. There are 6 discs. The first 5 contain the actual episodes and the 6th is the special features. Some of the special features require DVD-rom on your computer. I haven't tried those out yet. Apparently there is a She-Ra coloring book on this disc. I'm guessing you can print out the pages. The documentaries & commentaries are very interesting & fun to watch.
If you were ever a fan of this series, you won't be disappointed in this set. I recommend this for all little girls or people who enjoy fantasy & animation.
For all of those boys that loved He-Man and the Masters of the Universe as a kid and figured She-Ra was just for girls, then I highly suggest watching an episode or two. It's a lot darker than He-Man, and having the main characters in hiding from the villain is a nice twist from He-Man...

Joe, Transformers, the Silverhawks and Bravestarr for the most part; you know manly shows full of action and misfired lasers that never seemed to hit anything more important than rocks and the odd robot. There were a handful of shows that … more
Time for a confession: As an animation-loving kid in the 1980s, I didn't care much for She-Ra. Don't get me wrong, I gave her obligatory respect for being He-Man's twin-sister and all but I would be lying if I told you that I was glued to the set for She-Ra's adventures in Etheria the way I anticipated He-Man's romps through Eternia. Blame it on poor timing. After all, She-Ra's meteoric rise into culture coincided with my own "all girls have cooties" phase. What's worse is that most of my cartoon … more
