Treatment 62 – He-Man She-Ra: The Secret of the Sword

“Uh…is that your sword poking my back?” “It’s a secret.”

Everything you fondly recall about your childhood is a lie. The truth is, when you were a tiny little tyke, you had some really shitty taste. This week, we decided to revisit a childhood favorite in the form of a Filmation animated feature/first five episodes of a new series.

He-Man She-Ra: The Secret of the Sword

The secret of this sword, is that it’s a cheap knock-off of the He-Man series, but aimed at girls in the most shallow way possible! We have rip-offs of He-Man characters, only the worst traits seem the most amplified. But, don’t worry, all of your favorite old characters are still there (except Orko) to reassure you that He-Man really wasn’t much more than a giant commercial.

CRINGE…at Marc‘s Cringer impression. It’s not a bad impression, Cringer’s voice is just that hard to listen to!!!

TRANSFORM… your day, as Matt describes his favorite character, Arnold Hordvak!!!

HURL INSULTS… at your MP3 player, as Doug hurls idiotic insults in his best Skeletor voice, and Kirk does his best impression of a horse!!!

If you want to shatter childhood illusions, you can find The Secret of the Sword to stream instantly on Netflix Instant! You can also find it available for digital rental from Amazon through our store! So watch it today, and then join us as we talk about what He-Man toys we had as kids! Also, be sure to subscribe to the podcast on iTunes, and join us for next week’s episode!

Next Week: Holy shit, y’all! We are super excited that Enter the Ninja is streaming again!! We’ll talk Sho Kosugi and Franco Nero next week!

  1. My name is pronounced exactly as it sounds.

    He-Man was a pretty bad cartoon… although, its still better than Captain Planet and the Planeteers….

    I just checked out Singapore Sling on IMDb, and I see the movie also stars James Hong! Does Shannon Tweed and Hong get it on in the movie? The movie is streaming on Swedish Netflix so I can’t wait to find out!

  2. So I’m driving down the interstate yesterday as I was listening to this episode. Suddenly traffic comes to a halt. I’m a mile and a half away from my exit and I’m thinking, “Great, I’ll probably be sitting here for 40 minutes.”

    So traffic picks up again, ever so slightly and just as I get to the part in the podcast where you guys break out into your Skeletor/Hordak cake argument routine I pass the scene of a giant car wreck. And I am laughing hysterically as I am driving past car wreckage and people looking sad and shook up. I felt like such a heel, but I couldn’t help myself. It was so funny!

    Anyway, I thought you should know. Great episode, gentlemen.

  3. Two years too late too bad. I suffered through this piece of crap to laugh myself to tears at one of the funniest episodes of Schlock Treatment I’ve ever heard. Actually, one of the funniest podcasts I’ve ever heard.
