It looks so great, but it is going to be heartbreaking by the end. Because we all know how it must end, for the orignal movie to begin


MmmmmmMMmmmmmmm

Wonder if other parts of the lore such as Aughra's son will appear


Philip,

I doubt it.

Mostly I'm okay with this in the sense the pre-quel might help set up a sequel down the road...

I REALLY want to watch this series. It feels less like a pre-quel though...

My boy and I watched the first episode yesterday (after watching the original movie). I liked it. Visually stunning. An intriguing bunch of plot points, a little different from what I was expecting, though. The voice cast is awesome. The expansion of the world, especially focusing on the Gelfling culture and various clans, was really cool.

As you watch you also see Skesis culture as well. Its rather interesting.


I am up to episode 7....it is great. Though I dont think it is for young children....which is okay.


Dark Crystal was never for small children - the Skeksis have always been complete nightmare fuel.
We are up to the Hunter/Archer Epdisode and I like it, even though I still have a Problem with the Gelfling Aesthetic.
My favourite is the Podling Paladin - and I fully expect the series to kill him off in order to make me cry.


Watched the first half hour alone... did not find it interesting. Told myself that it must be for kids. Played it again for my kids. They didn't last 10 minutes and showed no interest.


Found the first episode a bit slow, mainly because they had a lot of worldbuilding to set up. 2nd episode was much better, world building is out of the way so on to the plot.

and a little reminder of just how horrible the Skeksis are even to each other. Horrible nasty things all dressed up in silk and gold. The contrast of that is just perfect. Almost feel bad for the scientist

and I love how they think so little of the Podlings they don't even care that the little buggers over hear every evil plan they have.


HMMM MMMM MMMM yes MMMMMMMMMmmmmMMMM

Did you do it in his voice?

With Episode 3 they have opened the door on the idea of multiple timelines, which means the series need not be on a collision course with the origiinal movie. That was probably the one thing about the series that bugged me, for the movie to happen the end of the series had to be bad. Now the Movie may or may not be the ultimate end for the story.

Also Poddling Paladin FTW!

Two episodes to go. It's pretty decent so far. The Podling dude is cool, but my favorite characters so far are the exiled Skesis and Mystic. They reminded me of an old, married couple.

Finished watching the season. It was....interesting. I liked seeing the origin of the Garthim, but I wonder how they can make more. I recall the earlier revelation the two Gruenaks were the last of their kind. One got thrown into the shaft of fire, and they used the other to make Garthim #1. So, unless they have more hidden away somewhere, they'll have to come up with some other way to create more.

I'm left wondering which of the gelfling characters are meant to be the parents of Jen and Kira. I actuallly hope the answer is...none. Might be more interesting that way.


Aughra said something about 'Many paths' so the movie might be the worst case scenario with the genocide happening.


The Garthim reveal was ok, I had actually forgotten about the guys. The one thing bothering the wife an me was - how do you go from spider plus frog guy to giant crab with caterpillar feet? And the additions do not look very mechanic. But it was a suitable gut punch mirroring the success of the first stages of the Rebellion.

It is strange that I connect way better to their muppets than to the Gelflings. Both Hup and the Gruenaks stirred more emotional Response in me than any of the Gelflings. They do great work with them, but they are still too uncanny valley for me.

The twist:
I did love that the Arathim, your standard hive mind baddy, actually switched sides. It makes sense from their lore, but taking something so inhuman and make them allies is cool

Also, my wife really liked Deet having two Daddys, just as a random aside. That kind of inclusion is the best Kind, not annoying anyone and still making a point, even on Thra :)

Still wary about how they want to go from here (and if they should). This ended on a generally positive note, and we know that in the Long term the Crystal will be healed, but... Do they really want to go into the whole genocide thing and expect people to get their happy end from the movie? That would be harsh.


I have to say I like the Hunter. He shows what the Skeksis could have been, had they not been obsessed with finery and decadence. A fairly terrifying murder machine.


They all play their roles. Which is one of the really great elements when you compare them to the Mystics counterparts. This is something I would love to see more of (maybe in S2) - how do the other mystic roles compare to the Skeksis?

What is a good Chamberlain like? A good Emperor?

Yes. He was one of my favorite new characters.


The thing that made me wonder

About the Hunter/Archer:
Why the Archer started fading away before he hit the ground?
