The Synopsis: As the Gelfling race on the planet Thra become aware of the fact that their customarily worshiped overlords, the Skeksis, are exploitative, taxing essence-suckers who are destroying their world, three Gelflings — Rian, Brea and Deet — inspire a rebellion after discovering a horrifying secret behind the Skeksis’ power that threatens their entire planet.

Piercing Ken Thoughts: Sadly I never managed to see the original film once more before taking a look at this one so that is going to keep me from being an early binge-watcher. I did enjoy those trailers thoroughly and feel that the series will be to my liking. I think somewhere in the Great Beyond, the spirit of the late great Jim Henson must be smiling at the notion that his creations are returning so many years after their introduction in 1982. He was truly a genius at such things and with that being said I wonder if you plan on binge-watching this series or are you taking a pass. Chime in down below in the comments section when you have a moment.
