There are points here where I completely forgot I was watching puppets. Incredibly high artistry just as in the original film. Mission accomplished.
As one who saw the original Dark Crystal in the theaters as a kid, this is a breath of fresh air on all fronts. From visuals to story to masterful puppetry to score, it is a beautiful and gorgeous world and achievement for Jim Henson's legacy and Netflix. They don't make things like this anymore and it is a delight to see. You can see the cost spent up on the screen. I hope they keep making this for years to come. Brilliant. You cannot find anything wrong with this program.
I liked how many conversations you can have simply with “hmmmmmmmmm” - “hmmm!!” - “hmm...hmm!”, and “yeeeeeessssss”. Highly enjoyable, yessssss?
Stunning visuals and amazing production throughout. But it's not only for the eye as the story looks very promising as well.
This prequel series makes me want to check out the movie again. I grew up with it, yet never really got into the movie.I always found the original puppets creepy looking or ugly. I just know they didn’t appeal to me. Everything looks spectacular in this series though.The story pulls you in right away as well.
This was an incredibly BEAUTIFUL first episode, also felt so anxious for all the gelfling... o
