In defiance of every obstacle you could throw in front of it, Netflix and The Jim Henson Company‘s The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance prequel series is one of the most incredible things to film or TV in 2019. It’s a marvel of production design, a miracle of technical filmmaking, a triumph of tone-blurring, genre-defying dark fantasy storytelling, and maybe the best “nostalgia revival” work Generation X has yet been gifted. To the degree that anything can be, it’s as close to perfect as something like this can get.

This is The Big Picture with Bob Chipman, talking about The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance.
