So, is any sailor moon iteration actually good? Or did they just catch lightning in a bottle with an iconic design and an audience in dire need of content.

The original Sailor Moon anime series and its films are worth watching. Preferably subbed. I can stand the first season of the DIC dub but it just gets worse and worse as the series continues with more story changes and an entire new cast halfway through. Sailor Moon has great music [(1)](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tF4d1zhkKyg) [(2)](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QBbmqN6GE74) and a lot of cute and funny moments, particularly in the later seasons. The animation's OK, though the reused shots and the formulaic fight scenes hamper it a lot. I honestly don't like the manga that much but I could see why some might find the more standard Shoujo style nice. You're also going to want to read that fan-translated. I don't like Sailor Moon Crystal at all. It's just a worse retelling of the original series as far as I'm concerned.

Thanks for the reply, I’ll have to get around to it one of these days. My wife has fond memories of Sailor moon and Cardcaptor Sakura but I think she’s always felt that they are shows better left in the past, wrapped up in nostalgia.

Card Captor Sakura's actually even better. The animation is amazing (you have MADHOUSE legends like Takeshi Koike animating some of the key scenes) and the soundtrack is almost Prog Rock at times. I'd recommend watching that over Sailor Moon to be honest. I was skeptical I'd like it as much as I did as kid because of nostalgia too but I think it's how the dub slightly worsens the show. It's not Sailor Moon bad, but it cuts out just enough to dampen what the show's trying to do.
