  3. In preparation for the upcoming show, "The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance" on Netflix, Will & Jes delve into the 1982 classic that started it all: Jim Henson's "The Dark Crystal." What makes the story so powerful? How well does it hold up after 37 years, and why? What's it like to watch it for the first time, as a child, in the current age of the MCU and ubiquitous big-budget blockbusters? Why are the Teletubbies as frightening (yet infinitely worse entertainment) as the Skeksis? How is "The Dark Crystal" like "The Catcher in the Rye"? How does the film appeal to both kids & adults in a totally different way than more modern "kids movies" like Toy Story, etc.? What makes the movie's themes so relevant and timeless? How could the prequel show on Netflix deal with Thra's past? Join us to get the answers to these questions -- and much more!
