  • What's annoying is that the video says "there's more female characters and that's an improvement." 1. The original had more female then male characters so that's a straight up lie.. 2. Why does having more female characters "improve" anything? When a franchise as mostly female characters and they add more males does that "improve" things?? I doubt watch mogo would think so... go fuck yourself watch mojo..that's why I stopped watching your shit for the most part and even when I try yall just remind me why I steer clear of your videos.

  • I always thought the original dark crystal would make a better series then single movie. And while the series is absolutely amazing, now when i learned all the extended lore i believe it would make for amazing game.

  • I do respect The Dark Crystal film as a cult classic, but when I first saw it about 9 years ago, I admit, I wasn't too thrilled by the story at first. It seemed...pretty cliche to me. A prophecy, a being the last of his kind (those being elf-type humanoids) to fulfill the prophecy, parents murdered by the bad guys, a crystal at the heart of the fantasy...yeah, I'd heard all those tropes before by the time I watched the movie (I was about 20 when I saw it so that was probably why XD). But over time, it grew on me. I think maybe Jen and Kira could have stood to be more fleshed out as characters, but oh well. But I still like the characters pretty well, and the visuals, puppetry, and soundtrack are to die for! Even without Age of Resistance, it's still a world I'd love to get lost in! :D When Age of Resistance came out, I was a little meh about it at first, but once my roommates and I sat down to watch it, boy did I get hooked! Not only updated effects, which are stunning, but yes indeed a world explored way deeper, which Thra really needed! And the Gelfling race, I never knew before that they were so damn interesting! It's not just two Gelfling who are the last of their kind anymore, we get to see a whole fleshed out race of them! And of different clans, in different parts of the world, different cultures, love it, love it, love it! And so many complex characters among them, something the Gelfling really needed. LOL Anyway, yep, just me fangirling out over the show so far. Can't wait for season 2! :D

  • Isn't the show a prequel? So I wouldn't care Too much for differences cause it gives you new things and the puppets look great in the show that they don't seem like puppets most of the time skskdk also Is Chamberlin like a costume cause that's a huge puppet if it isn't

  • Did they just praise the show for having more female characters? Is that really even something that matters? There was only like two gelflings in the movie made in the 80's, why not be more fascinated with the fact that there are more than just two gelflings?

    • Its likely because the Skeksis + Mystics are all male, the entire cast of the film that had major roles except Kira and Mother Augra were male... ...Except... Neither mystics or Skeksis are actually "male", they have no gender they just choose male identifications. Except Skeksa, who identifies as female, but we haven't seen her yet.

      AngelEmfrblAngelEmfrbl3 months ago
  • "There are significally more female characters at the forefront of the story, which is a welcome improvement" What? The original had 2 protagonists one a dude the other a lady. 50 50 wasnt good enough? And seriously the series has a bunch of interesting well handled female characters , it never makes a point or lampshading it or feeling all look at us about it They are just good characters Good characters are good characters (shocker) regardless of gender . The gender of a character doesn't in itself improve the quality of a work

    Leon EvelakeLeon Evelake3 months ago
    • Its a nod to how all the mystics and skeksis are "male"... Meaning there was two female major cast members only. Except the Skeksis and Mystics aren't male... They choose to identify as male but they have no genders. Only one Skeksis identifies as female, Skeksa... She is dead by the start of the film and not yet shown in the netflix series.

  • Seeing as the Netflix show is a prequel to the Dark Crystal movie, then there should be differences. Of course there will be advances in technology but I am glad that they chose to make it in the more traditional manner, that way it doesn't destroy the magic. Well done.

  • I don’t get how nobody has realized this yet but Brea is actually Kira’s mother. If you go to the episode titled “prophets don’t know everything” Deet gets her second vision from the sanctuary tree. In this vision you see brea dressed in scarves and running away with baby Kira

  • Am I seriously the only one that sees how this show shit all over the movie so that it now makes no sense? This prequel takes a key element of the movie, the fact that the Skesies and the Mystics were once one being that split into two when the crystal was cracked, and flushes it down the toilet to say that the Mystics were always on Thra and the Skesies came from another world. Augra is an idiot in this show, oh I will totally trust these obviously evil creatures with the soul of Thra. The Gelflings are even worse, for trusting these terrifying creatures blindly, I call BS. Oh and the prophecy doesnt exist I guess because the Skesies dont swear to kill all the Gelfling so the crystal cant be healed. This show is a huge disappointment.

  • Personally I feel Brea is quite underrated. Everybody loves Deet, But they haven’t realized Brea is more optimistic then her. Brea still looks on the brighter side, even though she’s been through a lot of pain. She still could give people hugs when her own mother couldn’t give her anymore. And still tried to look for hope even when her sister died. And she’s extremely smart, She’s still optimistic even though she knows the bad of the world, While Deet is optimistic since she is nieve to the the badness. I don’t mean to thrash Deet, I’m just trying to make a point. Brea is awesome! They probably would never defeat the skesis without her. ( she found the shard ) She also hitched a ride for all of them across the desert, Which if she wasn’t there, The rest of them probably would’ve died. She also figured out the badness of the skesis on her own.
