As skekTek says the line, "I will need to find a much stronger source of connective tissue to augment the fibroblasts", his voice starts to sound the way it does in the film. See more »


Puppeteer Kevin Clash could be fully seen operating one of the Gruenaks during their fight scene in the original release. The mistake was later edited out by Netflix. See more »


[Deet unleashes the power of the Sanctuary Tree on skekLach. They convulse and wail but then the power dies down]
The Collector: That wasn't so bad.
[They chuckle, but then their pustules explode, and finally their head explodes like one giant zit, splattering the other Skeksis with pus. The Skeksis gag and spit]
The Scroll-Keeper: Oh, it's in my mouth!

Doesnt line up with the movie at all!
16 September 2019 | by garabedian123See all my reviews

Not a bad show...but not the dark crystal...I never loved the movie so its not like I needed it to be perfect. But it didn't line up to the movie at all...not even close. And had I never seen the movie I probably would not have cared. But Aliens???...Aliens don't even make sense in this universe....They defy the logic of its own story. How did they arrive? Do they have a space ship? Where is it? Why will they not return to where they came from when they die..and why not Thraa?

And really my biggest issue....Okra knew the skexis were the evil halves of the mystics the entire time? Then why did she give them the crystal...and if Okra is god and made the earth...where did the rest of the universe come from.?
