I think this line's mostly filler.

YMMV, but I suspect if you continue, you'll be surprised. It gets quite dark. It has plenty of muppety moments scattered throughout, and some very muppety voices (Simon Pegg duplicates the original Chamberlain voice quite well), but once it sets the cutesy fantasy scenes in the beginning, everything starts to go wrong.


But if you don't have any nostalgia for Henson and the original Dark Crystal, maybe it's too hard to get past the muppetiness.

I also enjoyed Carnival Row, but there was something about the plot where, even though it did resolve the overarching season plotline, it felt like it was just the beginning. Or a sort of tour through an amazing feat in worldbuilding*. Luckily, it has been renewed already, so maybe it will get a chance to be a bit more plot-forward.


* ETA: The worldbuilding is so extensive I had to double check that it isn't based on a long series of novels.

Started Sherlock this a.m. on NetFlix.

Watched, and recommend, Retribution.

Also watching Mad Men. Meh, but I keep looking at it, for some reason.

Wrong thread, but I'm watching Justified on dvd. Starting the last season tonight.
