Just dusting off this old thread - someone posted this up on an Ain't it Cool chatback (yes, I know, the most reliable source of information in the world), but it piqued my interest. All-new Thundercats?

Not nearly gay-enough.

They should keep them as a bunch of muscle marys.

As long as they always start the episode arguing about something trivial, fight something, then end up laughing for two minutes at the end to fill up time, it will have captured the essence of the original series.

I am curious as to why Liono appears to be a heroin addict now, though.

He's too scrawny. And suffers from a bad case of unpedicured feet.

Nurse, the sander?

Maybe they have updated the show to tackle modern day issues, in much the same way as the original was a subtle critique of unchecked imperialism, both political and economic, sweatshop labour, and a protracted dissection of the machismo and underlying homoeroticism that was the 1980s.

These new ThunderCats are unsure of themselves, they are fighting a war that they no longer believe to be just, and have lost a sense of cultural identity and direction. Some tackle this through violence (Panthro) whilst others use drugs as a means of escape, and attempt to give themselves a new identity (Liono).

I reckon Snarf will be a crackwhore.

Like Apocalypse Now but the surf boards can fly and there's a bit house shaped like a cat.

I was thinking it would be more like the new Battlestar Galactica, but more camp.

I think the old Liono could well beat up the new one.

So why did She Ra's sword have a clitoris?

It's like the ultimate sex organ.
