Picks and Pans Review: He-Man, Vol. Xi

UPDATED 05/13/1985 at 01:00 AM EDT Originally published 05/13/1985 at 01:00 AM EDT

There are those who wish He-Man would retire from the hero business and go into selling insurance or writing body-building books. But he's still into his basic shtick: He comes, he sees and he demolishes. Then he moralizes. It's a little like being run over by a truck and having the driver shout, "Have a nice day!" as he roars away. This tape includes two more episodes taken from the He-Man and the Masters of the Universe TV series. Fans of such colorfully futile bad persons as Beast Man and Evil-Lyn will be chagrined that two newer and less amusing villains, Masque and Princess Shokoti, serve as He-Man's punching bags. (Thaddeus Novak, who often signs his name "H"—for guess who—dissents from this review.) (RCA/Columbia, $24.95)
