If you liked the Dark Crystal movie, this is more of that. I think it looks great with a very good voice cast.

For me, the show takes itself too serious, no comedy and I think some scenes are overly disgusting. I'm not going to continue watching.

Hello snowy,

Just rewatched the DVD movie and redeemend a 15 € voucher cause I was simply too curious. :)

You are right; very close to the movie with respect to both story telling and voice acting. I think they found the right  balance between puppet show and modern CGI productions, but it definitely feels like Jim Henson's work from the 1980s with lots of details.

I have watched now 2.5 episodes and can confirm that the tone in general is (as in the movie) very serious, but at least episode two and the first 20 minutes of episode three include some funny things as well. The background story with the seven Gelfling tribes is also very promising.

The bitter pill is:

Knowing the prologue of the 1982 movie, I am afraid that this cannot have a good ending. :(

However, thank you for the information.

      Happy birthday to me!
      Yes, today's my birthday and as much as I want to play The Dark Mod, I won't until it's late Autumn, where it should be a bit chilly in my place and there's some wind too.
      For now, it's time to enjoy my birthday, if any of you want to play a great fan mission in my honour...Well that's asking too much, just play the mission because it's fun, not because of me, enjoy it yourself! 💪

      Took a break from TDM until I got my backlog under control. It's been months and it's still not "under control". Damnit.

      I sleep well at night knowing the player will never see the absolute nightmare that is my sealing brushwork outside the playable area. Only the pointfile can judge me now.

      Somehow I admire the fact that the material from Dune has now been filmed for the third time. Personally, I could never do much with the material, but as a child of the 80s, I of course know the David Lynch movie...and that movie was at least funny!
