3 deep & I'm not too impressed. It's like fantasy for spinsters with cats, easily digestable & not too challenging. How in the hell were all these Gelflings taken over by these shell-less turtle & Vulture characters who all seem slow & dimwitted. Also, at least for me, you never don't see Muppets. It's like watching all those old Gary Anderson' Supermarionation' Puppet people. I can't get past it. I remember thinking the same thing when I saw the original Dark Crystal at the movies & nothing's changed.

Have you ever imagined a world with no hypothetical situations?

The gelflings look pretty bad IMO. Kira and Jen were much more realistic looking and performed better too. Guess that’s he Jim Henson and Frank Oz magic for you.
Some of the voices they cast are just annoying and hard to get through the one female Skeksis. Yikes.

Several of my friends have watched this and loved it. I haven't watched and probably won't. As a kid watching the Gelflings get drained of their essence really F'ed me up. The Skesis are things of my nightmares.

I know, it's nuts that it freaks me out this much as an almost 40 year old, but it just does. I love(d) the hell out of JAWS as a kid, but give me creepy puppets that eat souls and I'm scarred for life.

I'm three episodes in and thus far love it. I think it looks absolutely beautiful on my 4K television. I've paused multiple times to marvel at the art and puppets.

I have no complaints and very curious how the story goes as it takes the inevitably grim conclusion.

Ok, just finished it. It does get good, real good at times. You have to get through the first two episodes. That last half is where itís actually really intense.

I am still very disappointed in the score though. The original movie has so many wonderful themes. They played the crystal theme just twice in the new series. Thatís it. While there are some other new themes which are ok, the score just pales in comparison to Trevor Jones original.

Thatís my biggest complaint. The show is good though.

I finished it the other day. I like what they did with the mythology and production value is through the roof but the overall story for the first season is rather thin for 10 hour long episodes.
