22. The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance (Season 1)
In this episode, Will & Jess bring back ScreenHub film critic Eric Hanson for a deep dive into the THE DARK CRYSTAL: AGE OF RESISTANCE, the prequel series to the 1982 cult classic movie, The Dark Crystal. Topics include: Elevating the art of puppetry to a whole new level; the show's exquisite artistry; Eric's spot-on impression of SkekLach/The Collector; why the show shouldn't go beyond 5 or 6 seasons, in-depth examination & analysis of the characters, empathizing with puppets, how Age of Resistance turns classic fantasy tropes on their heads in the most satisfying way... and much more. Why is The original Dark Crystal a cult classic rather than a classic classic? What makes the writing in Age of Resistance so incredibly effective? How does the show stay faithful to the spirit of the original film, both thematically and artistically? What does it all mean for Jim Henson's legacy?
