    To say that I am obsessed would be an understatement. I actually cry with joy watching this series over and over because it is all that my little heart hoped for when I was 8 in 1982 and wanted more.

    It is incredible how Taron engages in his roles, it is beautiful to just hear him speak and explain what he is involved in, in every way, praising the whole group. He always feels inspired, he grabs everything he sees from the project he gets into and once inspired he gives his best, not only for him, but for the project (or at least it seems that way every time he talks about what he is involved in). It is not surprising that the passion and affection that this actor manages towards his characters and projects ends in characters and projects that are very easy to connect. I hope that the Oscar arrives for Rocketman and I hope the success of this series but I have no doubt that with all this team it will be.

    Cindy Holland we want a second season! But no rush Job! You have gold in your hands...So don't let any fartbrains near it so we can be 'subverted' or because it needs to be done by a certain timeframe. We will wait patiently for it and while you're at it get some merch going. With all the beloved franchises going down the drain you probably will have all us geeks flocking to this.

    People if you like this series you need to share it and tell people how good it is so we can get a sequel. Netflix has been canceling good shows based on viewership and not that many people are watching this Dark Crystal prequel. You can tell because the people engagement is so low across the internet.

    I'm from Germany, and proud that one of the last traditional public puppet-theaters "Augsburger Puppenkiste" still exist. Now we got a Netflix Puppety-Fantasy - That's amazing, lovin' DARK CRYSTAL. 💜 CGI should never be a cheap option over practical production design. 👍🏻

    I loved this series! I have never watched the original movie until recently seeing the commercials for this. Watched the movie then immediately jumped into the series. This isn’t a CGI killer, but damn it’s a fresh of breath of air from it.

    Its a bit sad that they did not use any of the wonderful Trevor Jones Soundtrack, which is IMHO integral to the world of the Dark Crystal. The new OST lacks a bit, there are no real recognizable themes, just incidental music.

    So I just came here to see what all the fuss is about. I never saw the movie, I havent watched the nes series. All I can say is that I hate puppets with a passion because they just creep me the fuck out. I cant possibly be the only one out there, right? So I'll see if I ever watch this, I am impressed with with the work they put into this, but other than that I have no positive feelings I must admit.

    "Jim Henson often made his films quite scary. He thought it was healthy for children to be frightened occasionally" This is so true. All my favorite movies as a kid scared me to some degree (Dark Crystal, Labyrinth, Neverending Story, Gremlins). Children are tougher than you think and need to be challenged, it helps them grow. You can tell modern kids entertainment creators and some parents forgot this. Really shows how society's perspective has changed since Henson's and others' work from the 70's and 80's.

      My older brother took me to see Tales of The Crypt, a horror film meant for an adult audience when I was 8 or 9 years old and as I got older I thought WTF was he thinking because it was not something I needed to see ..

      This does not apply to SJW's and millennials as they find anything and everything offensive. And anything they find offensive is then deemed "hateful."

    This series was astoundingly good. I really hope it's renewed for the follow-up and then perhaps a feature film following the events of the original film. it will be good to see how a world can rebuild and heal itself.

    OMGODDESSSSSS HOLY WOW. What a FREAKING TREAT. Such deep appreciation in my Heart that I have no words to fully capture everything. Here is what I wrote on my FB post about it: "OMGGODDESSSSSSSSSS WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW I had never heard of the 80's move "The Dark Crystal" (can you believe it?) and tonight Michael Abramson asked for us to watch something as our relaxing evening and I turned on Netflix and the first thing that was on the screen was The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance and I just turned it on clueless what it was all about. Michael was shocked that not only had I not even seen it, in that I never even heard of it either. WOW WHAT A FREAKING TREAT to start episode 1 & 2. I AM sooooo hooked on and soooooooo freaking amazing the symbology, the names were chosen to represent Earth's Ascension, Gaia, Power of Crystals, Light Codes and the Kristos Light and the many Galactic, Celestial, Angelic & Elemental Family of Light that are here assisting us plus the dark cabal. Absolutely LOVED it. I can hardly wait to watch the rest. Here is a bit with trailer and behind the scenes. THANK YOU Jim Henson LOVE AND GRATITUDE, HoniB

    2:00 That's an interesting point about the voice acting in this series. When you can see the completed scene and your character's performance ahead of time, that probably inspires you in ways that it wouldn't if you were simply doing the voice with no context off a written script (which would be animated later). Here, you can see where everyone else is standing, what they're feeling and what you're supposed to be reacting to.

    Did we want an expansion of Dark Crystal's story? YES! But... a prequel series is kind of a boring story, like the Hobbit when you've see LOTR. Don't get me wrong, so far I love the story, it's interesting, I like the triple protagonists and the production quality is great, *SPOILERS* I just don't want to see a long drawn out fantasy epic because Netflix is a pacing killer, and a tragic tale of genocide or exodus should be short and sweet, err bittersweet. Pay your taxes.
