5 Things: Inflation | Unvaccinated People | He-Man | COVID-19 Surge | Vaccine Mandate

We watched Kevin Smith’s He-Man cartoon over the weekend and it was pretty good, so feel free to ignore the woman-hating incels review-bombing the cartoon and bitching up a fit online. They’re just mad because Teela has actual lines and real clothes.

Masters of the Universe: Revelation was fun and interesting and funny and jam-packed with absolutely terrible puns. Just awful. Excellent stuff. It was very reminiscent of the original cartoon, but with, y’know, actual stakes, better animation, and a fantastic voice cast. I’m looking forward to the second half of the season.
