In contrast to the original series, Adora / She-Ra is extensively rewritten to make her origin a result of her own initiative and heroism. For instance, rather than have her twin brother come to Adora's world and free her from a spell making her loyal to the Evil Horde, Adora in this series is simply naively acclimated to that life as the only one she's ever known. When Adora is finally exposed to the evil of the Horde and its manipulations, she herself fundamentally has to make the profound moral decision to take a stand against it and join the Rebellion as She-Ra. Furthermore, a major character arc for Adora is her struggle to earn the trust of the Rebellion, who are logically suspicious of a former soldier of the Horde who still wears her uniform with a reflexive military bearing.

Giving it a generous 8 due to certain elements of the writing, particularly the Adora-Catra dynamic. I enjoyed it and look forward to the next season.
Worth mentioning that this show needs to change it's target audience. The kid/teen audience they're aiming at does not permit them to really portray this conflict and the effects it has on relationships. I get that it tried to be PC, but they shouldn't let that drive their demographic away from the people who really wanna watch it - young adults. It's not a kids show, and they shouldn't try to make it one.
They can change this since it's still early, but if they pidgeonhole themselves into this audience, they will stuggle to tell the story they really should tell.
