SFF69: The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance



Even though we’ve covered plenty of science fiction, fantasy, supernatural, and horror shows on Sci Fi Fidelity, we’ve never reviewed anything quite like The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance. Billed as a prequel to Jim Henson’s 1982 film of the same name, the Netflix series wowed us with its artistry, its worldbuilding, and its impressive slate of voice talent. Although there is some debate in the podcast about the appeal of puppet-based storytelling, there was no doubt about its compelling mythology and enjoyable characters.As usual, the podcast centers around the first two episodes of The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance with a “spoiler zone” towards the end of the discussion for those who have seen the whole thing. This allows for plenty of critiquing of the premise of the show and of the effectiveness of having three protagonists while also setting aside time to speculate on what the ending means and where the series might be headed in season 2.  See for priva
