It almost takes one on a nostalgic trip to their childhood or adolescence, when everything was good. And why wouldn’t it? It is a part of childhood for those born in the 70s and 80s. It was a daily staple at the time that is still remembered with reverence today.

Masters of the Universe: Revelation: About the Show
Masters of the Universe: Revelation is the sort of show that you don’t really see nowadays. The sort of glamorous and pretty out there characters and themes that it possesses are really one of a kind. They’re a gentle reminder of the origins of the show. Stemming from the Mattel toys that toy collectors loved and cherished, the character traits reflect the sort of absurdism that one would expect.
The new Masters of the Universe series takes place in the same universe of Eternia as the original. From what we can see in the first episode of the series, not a lot has changed for Eternia, and the show creators have managed to keep the roots of the show alive. However, Masters of the Universe is anything but a copy of the original series. The series does away with a lot of the characters and storylines of the original and establishes its own. The first episode solves a lot of the issues the original series left in the minds of the viewers and sets up the premise for Revelation.
The show carries on through the perspective of a character that wasn’t a huge part of the main series, and shows the series in entirely different ways. It reveals how a lot of the things in the original show were actually false and lies told by the characters. And carries on with an entirely different story of its own.
