I've watched this episode several times, and even when I like it, I find some things that I don't like and some others that don't make sense and that, by changing them, the ep would have made so much more sense (alas, like so many other eps in the series). The chosen villains I'm ok with Safari Joe and Spidera, maybe even with Ratar-O. But why Slithe? A foe that has provesd to be so inoffensive against Lion-O. I know MummRa chose him foir that fear gas or whatever, but if he wanted fear, he could have gone with Mongor. Other possibilities were Ta-She, Demolisheror, Shiner or even Charr-Nin. Even more, imagine just one big portrait of every enemy the Tcs have defeated together. Lion-O's curiosity and arrogance It speaks for itself... not so much for an already anointed leader who has gone a long way into adulthood and maturity (this was one of the latest eps in season 1, not one of the earlier ones). The ThunderCats'division There were 4 portratis and 4 TCs (if we team the kittens together, as it usually happened). So why not the TCs entered one portrait each? The kittens could have entered Safari Joe's, Panthro in the tank into Spidera's, Tygra to Ratar-O's and Cheetara to Slithe's (or any other combination). Even more, if they wanted to check two portraits at a time, why having the kittens go alone against Safari Joe while the three adults went together to fight Spidera? So three adults together go against one enemy and leave two kids to fight another? Wouldn't it have been better of one of the adults accompained the kittens? Even more, going on with the idea of one single portrait with all the enemies together, it would have been great to see the TCs entering it and dividing to fight them. The final segment I didn't like the TCs thanking Lion-O and ackowledging how heroic and good friend he is because he went for them and didn't let them die in those portraits, and Lion-O just taking it and bloating and gloating on it. In the first place, it's what a leader should do. In the second place, the TCs wouldn't have got themselves in that predicament if not for trying to help Lion-O in the first place, so some "No, thank you, guys", wouldn't have come bad. And finally, and related to the previous point, it was so submisive the way the TCs thanked him, as if they did nothing for him. I didn't like that part of the episode. "Oh Lion-O, you're such a good friend and so smart and brave. You're the best, our hero" rather than "Hey, we got there to help you in the first place, so how about some aknowledgment to what we did and some gratitude?" Any thought?
