REVIEW:
I sometimes watched the original show with David Carradine. (Yes, I'm that old.) So I was stoked to see they brought the show back with new life!
I must admit, I enjoy this one better too! Could be the kick-ass female lead, but also the story has more depth to it.
This series follow a girl on her destiny, one she had no idea she even had until the moment arose that she had to be a warrior. Then all of the pieces start to fall into place. With the help of her friends and family, Nicky takes on events that are wild and unseen.
I have to say, the very last episode wasn't the best. It dragged out and it didn't bring the show together as I would hope. The only thing is it set us up for the next season, provided there is one. Will I watch it? You bet I will!

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
