>>123687286>Watch only a few of each season. You'll get the gist pretty fast. It's fun, but it's not made for binge watching. Maybe someone should do a list of the few ones that actually explore a bt of the lore and the past of the character, but I couldn't tell you right now.
I'll try to help:
Optionally "Diamond Ray of Disappeance", the pilot episode (sometimes listed as #4 though).
"Teela's Quest" explains that Adam's mother is an astronaut from Earth, Teela is the Sorceress of Grayskull's daughter and why she had Man-At-Arms adopt her.
"Creatures from the Tar Swamp": origin of Orko
"The Dragon's Gift" is a really good episode that establishes the lore of dragons for the setting and that Man-At-Arms is an ancient title
"The Witch and the Warrior": Teela and Evil-Lyn are forced to work together in a desert, and she says she's just using Skeletor, not loyal to him.
"Golden Disks of Knowledge": secrets of Snake Mountain and the now-defunct Council of the Wise, connected to the Cosmic Enforcers.
"Origin of the Sorceress": an Evil Horde scout ship finds Eternia and awakens Morgoth. 15-year-old Teela-Na found Castle Grayskull in a desperate attempt to save the world. Tied her origin to the upcoming She-Ra series.
"To Save Skeletor": the best of numerous episodes where Skeletor gets inside Castle Grayskull.
"Battlecat" tells the title character's origin.
"Search for the Past": the rescue of Adam's grandfather, missing presumed dead since Adam was just weeks old.
"The Problem with Power" is the deepest exploration of what it means to be He-Man you got in the old show.
