Dark Crystal is dark

I'm not sure if you actually saw the Dark Crystal Age of Resistance, but it is VERY dark. The core characters are standard heroic types, but corruptibility is at the heart of the character of Celidon. The crystal itself is corrupted through the corruption of the Skesis and the Gelflings.

Anyway, i think it shows that it is possible for a good television show to be made which respects the source material / world and vision of the original creators.

The series started getting a bit hand-wavy and plot hole-ish toward the last few episodes, but overall it was so beautiful and had such a lofty intent that it is hard not to give it a pass and appreciate the artistry and spirit of the world of Henson, Oz, and Froud. Bodes well for LOTR the second age series, I think and hope.
