    Teela was supposed to be the main interest, but they rarely did much with that. Some of the proposed sequel ideas would've had them married, but obviously those never happened.

    I'm going to take a guess that he gets more flirty in She-Ra's show because it's aimed more at girls, and girls are supposed to like romance more than boys do. (Hey, I don't choose the stereotypes...)

    It's hilarious how obviously uncomfortable he is with Frosta.

    Rarely ≠ never

    They're pretty flirty in "Into the Abyss" and there's also this little moment in "The Rainbow Warrior" that would be pretty easy to miss.

    But when they're together most of the time in almost every episode, you'd expect to see a lot more chemistry a lot more often. At least for a primary love interest anyway. Again, I'm gonna attribute that to "it's for young boys, they don't care about the mushy stuff."

    Yeah I wasn’t saying you are wrong quite the opposite you are correct on all counts. I just threw that up because it’s probably the most outright nod that he loves her. And it’s about as low key as you can get. James’ commentary is pretty solid on that post as well. He’s a lot on fun on the Filmation commentary.

    Noted. I'll finish up WFC soon to see if it ends badly. Thus far it's been ....tolerable. Nothing about it has been an extreme turn off.

    Admittedly I don't follow Transformers closely which is why I asked how it was received.

    The moment when I learn that He-Man was in fact an isekai harem protagonist...
    I think the same, probably a significant part of the audience was at an age when they would have gone "aww, gross" if they saw lovey dovey stuff. I was that way for several years as a kid.

    It's it just me, or does Morningstar look like a for-serious version of Trogdor?

    There was that one time Adam said, and I quote, "I wonder if I can attract Stratos."

    Well they spent more money on that than I was expecting. Pretty sure my daughter will love that.
