There appears to be some interest in this beautiful series, so here’s a thread.



I love them so much. So sweet.

Heretic and urGoh were really fun to watch. There’s so many great characters in this show. Don’t know how I feel about Seladon, however. Not sure if she redeemed herself fully yet. Her change of heart happened so quick, but I guess getting totally ridiculed by a bunch of bird-lizards does that to you. I liked seeing her turn to the “dark side” though, was interesting.

Like, I understand Seladon's resentment towards her family, being the eldest and all,
but at the same time she's a ****ing idiot for blindly trusting the skeksis the way she did lol. Even after they murdered her mum?? Right in front of her????


What episode are ya up to, BlueFox?

Oh, I finished! I watched it a while ago. To pass time, I’ve started reading the book tie-in series. Only on the first book so far; it’s called Shadows of The Dark Crystal. It’s from Naia’s point-of-view at the moment, which is really cool, since she didn’t do too much in the show. Nice illustrations, too. Do you know about skekSa? I think the Skeksis mention her at one point. She’s pretty...

Yeah, Seladon’s...not smart.

There's a turn-based tactics game coming out in "2019" on Steam based on this IP. Looks very interesting, imo. I'll have to give the show a watch, as I don't see as much Jim Henson stuff as I should (I think the last thing was the old PS1 game Rascal.... *shudders*)

It was deliciously cruel. I was glad she finally woke up.

Ya’ll ever just remember that all of these Gelflings have to die? It’s like when I remember Order 66 happens and my faves from Clone Wars are more than likely dead. It sucks. I like these characters more than I did Kira and Jen. They’re toast unless they scooch around it, maybe some Garthim slacked off on the job.

Incoming graphic novel material. Next on my list.

In case you’re hungry for extra lore, like I am.

I've heard the sequel comics are trash, the new comic so far is much better

I'm sure everyone's already seen this, but there's no harm in rewatching it. It is a masterpiece, after all.

I am liking it more than the film. The pacing is better, I found the film somewhat slow (common in older movies).

Kind sucks how they're all going to die. And with only two gelflings left you can't repopulate a species because of the limited gene pool. Gelfling society will never return. It's not really a happy ending!

This isn’t the case in the sequel comics, which I’ve seen purported to be canon and are listed in the timeline of the official website.

Quote:
After being entrusted with the Crystal by the urSkeks, Jen and Kira regenerated the Gelfling race and established the Gelfling Nation


So not all hope is lost. But the Age of Resistance gelflings are likely going to get axed, because this series doesn’t pull any punches. The Garthim Wars will be brutal. I’m really worried about Deet, what with the ending and all.

I still need to watch the last episodes. It's just finding the damned time!
But seriously, I'm absolutely loving this revival.
Thank you Blue for making this topic. ;~;

When I finish the series I am definitely picking up the books. I needs all the content.

No problem. The last few are intense.

I always thought this piece of concept art was cool. It's a Skeksis in their heyday. I want to see one in action.
