Netflix's the Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance landed yesterday, it's a 10 part series of about an hour a pop so that's a lot of new Dark Crystal content all up in my childhood. The show acts as a prequel, telling you the events that led up to the original movie.

So far I've seen the first episode... it's fantastic. So beautifully crafted. A perfect blend between puppetry and CGI, this is how you make dark fantasy shows. The voice acting is excellent too; most voices for original characters are done by new actors but they manage to get really close to the originals. Mark Hamill as the scientist is great but he does get a little stuck in his Joker voice now.

Of course the show does have Prequilitis - you know exactly where things will be going which takes the surprise out of it. But who cares - puppetry is still alive and kicking and it makes me happy.
