I just finished it myself. I'm... honestly not sure how I feel about it. There are places I wish it had gone.
Some good stuff, but it still felt like He-Man was sidelined a bit more than I'd have liked. And I'd also have liked to see a bit quicker change of heart from Evil-Lyn - I think I'd have liked to have seen the version where she and the others teamed up to take down Skeletor, as opposed to making her the big bad. And while she's ostensibly "good", she also nuked Preternia. Regardless of her change of heart, that's quite the act to be responsible for, unless they wanted to somehow bring it back in a future season.

Some other stuff:

- Orko was fun. Really glad to see him show back up.
- That last scene with Skeletor was... huh. Guessing this isn't going to get another season? Maybe all my gripes would have been resolved in that.
- Teela's plot arc felt a little... easy. I'm not expecting deep thoughts here, but the whole "power of my friends" stuff really feels like it cheapened the sacrifice her mother made to obtain that power.
- Super mad crazy He-Man was interesting. Kinda wild to see him in brute strength form.
- Man, they really, really screwed Beastman over. To watch Evil-Lyn use him just like Skeletor used her was just... ugh.
- Hey, finally, Adam and Teela are a thing!

Guess that's all I've got for now. Solid overall. And I admit, maybe I'm not necessarily the target audience - I wasn't a He-Man fan growing up.

Oh, and Skeletors voice actor was great. I never heard that guy, only knew the show in the German version.
If you liked that, I recommend a movie called "The Star Wars". It's a bit obscure, but if you look hard, you might be able to find it's presence online.

EDIT: Light teasing aside, Hamill has had a Hell of a voice acting career. His Joker is career redefining but he's done a ton of noteworthy stuff since and killing it.

Wait, you never heard Mark Hamill? Or are you refering to the original run of He-Man? Because that was a very very different performance.
I just don't remember voice actors, and assumed this was the same guy who did Skeletors voice in the German version. But, yeah, it's actually a name that I know (which, honestly, is rare enough).

You mean that stuff with Kirk and the guy with the pointy ears? Yeah, I vaguely remember that. :p

Hmm, I think when I recently watched the first SW movie (episode 4), I watched the German version. But certainly Mark Hamills Luke isn't nearly as over-the-top as this Skeletor was, right?

And I'd also have liked to see a bit quicker change of heart from Evil-Lyn - I think I'd have liked to have seen the version where she and the others teamed up to take down Skeletor, as opposed to making her the big bad.
I actually was pretty mad at the show, for doing that, until it gave her a reason for ending it all. Still not sure how I feel about this - seeing Evil-Lyn go full on evil overlord was pretty cool, and I liked her Sorceress and, uh, Super-Sorceress(?) costumes a lot. But, yeah, it felt a bit off, and I guess I need to think about this more.

Man, they really, really screwed Beastman over. To watch Evil-Lyn use him just like Skeletor used her was just... ugh.
I already talked about this, but it's worth repeating. Because, yeah, poor guy.

Hamill's movie career never really took off* but he is all over the voice acting scene and his top-notch performance as The Joker is a big reason why.

* Fun Fact: Hamill appeared as himself in addition to appearing as Luke Skywalker on The Muppet Show 'cuz he and they could both see he was at risk of being typecast in one particular role.
 
I liked it a lot. Sort of my fave thing is:

Lyn because the villain because she isn't a cipher. Her seeing the supposed pointlessness of existence gets her all JRPG villain. Skeletor is almost too dumb to care, and is just venal and obsessed with his confrontation with He-man,

Three episodes into Part 2, and I love that Evil Lyn just gets sick of Skeletor's nonsense and takes the sword from him and I especially love Eviler Lyn's buff new look, she is rocking that cape made of outer space, but I honestly kind of hate HOW she gets the sword from Skeletor. We really, REALLY didn't need to see that or even have the thought of them hooking up implied. There's a million different ways Lyn could have gotten the sword from Skeletor, they didn't have to resort to seduction and one of the cringiest animated kisses ever to grace the TeeVee.

I was just coming in to post exactly that.
When the trailer for part 2 dropped, I thought it was playing things a bit predictably, considering how part one shook out w/r/t MotU. I have been disabused of that opinion.

Finished now, loved part 2, and really hope there’s a part 3.

He-Man and Skeletors final battle taking the form of Skeletor refusing to accept he’s not the actual big bad, and that his conflict with He-Man being tangential to the story really sums up the whole series

The cliffhanger ending was interesting, but I wonder if it's something they can deliver on? From what I've heard, even though the series was on Netflix, it's Dreamworks that currently owns She-Ra, so they'd need to clear with them if they want to bring Etheria and the Horde on their He-Man show, even though it's a different version of She-Ra and she originated from He-Man anyway.

IP rights are weird.
