Just finished it September 9, 2019 Reply Kadajliger100 Grace I regret giving you my 1 viewYou're literally not worth it September 9, 2019 Reply HssA 88 lol you kidding me? This is everything we could have asked for and it was amazing , hoping they renew it for a season 2, first time checking out this channel thanks for sharing your shit review September 9, 2019 Reply Grey Johnson I love Grace and her opinion is hers. I personally loved it, it is visually stunning and was a real treat. Felt different than what I have watched recently. September 9, 2019 Reply Plastic Life Usually I thumbs up her reviews before I even watch them.. Something told me to wait… This Dark Crystal Series is soooo AMAZING!!! I wont thumbs down, but I strongly disagree with this review. September 9, 2019 Reply markos_ 74 To many locations puppets antiquated this woman doesn't have a f$$king clue it was a masterpiece ps watch her look like a fool when it wins awards for tv September 9, 2019 Reply Tobey Starburst Terrible review September 9, 2019 Reply Luke Fincher Oh Grace I didn’t think you were this type of person …. I’m really disappointed with this. This was probably the most satisfying prequel I’ve experienced in the last 10 years. Hardcore fans only?! Absolutely no way I showed a group of people who had never seen the original and they are now in love with it now and have finally watched the film. I really hope this show gets a couple more seasons because you can feel the love and passion in this series in every shot not trying to change anyone’s opinon with this though just an upset subscriber 😞 September 9, 2019 Reply WOWimTim All she did was bash the puppets. Show is great. Great story, great cast, and I was hooked from episode one. September 9, 2019 Reply Mama Sadie Man what the fuck are you even talking about? It has so much charm and heart. Go back to enjoying your films filled with cgi that have no soul whatsoever September 9, 2019 Reply Jeffrey Estaris This just proves that your reviews really have no credibilty. September 9, 2019 Reply Jeffrey Estaris Did you watch the making? The producers explored doing it in CGI. Even showed clips of how it looked like. I am glad they decided to abandoned the idea because the CGI gelflings just didn't work for me. September 9, 2019 Reply Firebender 117 I don't understand why people say it's like Game of Thrones because has a interconnecting story lines it's not like other stories haven't been told with similar ideas September 9, 2019 Reply Patrick D Sad to hear you didn’t love this more Grace 😩 I thought that this show proved that no matter the medium in which it comes in (Live action, classical animation, CGI animation, puppetry, etc.) as long as you tell a good story with characters the audience can connect with, audiences don’t really mind how it’s filmed. This show was aiming for the upper range of the PG-13 rating and it was able to appeal to adults without having to be crass like happy time murders or meet the feebles. Even if puppets aren’t really your thing I still highly recommend giving this a chance. September 10, 2019 Reply Patrick D Holy shit this has to be the one time I’ve ever seen a YouTube comment section so unanimously agreeing with one another. 😂🤣 September 10, 2019 Reply leon lacroix Grace serious question about your review… ARE YOU HIGH?? September 10, 2019 Reply Deusirae79 Your "review" made a loud thud, not that series. It's praised across the board. And there was even a moment when you thought Henson was still alive. Most pathetic review I've seen in ages. September 10, 2019 Reply No Diggity So I finished watching this show. The show is carried by the skeksis. The protagonists are garbage tier. The reason to watch the show is because the skeksis are so charismatic. Chamberlain is the best character in a show in ages. The scientist, voiced by mark hamill, is also pretty incredible September 10, 2019 Reply justin tran I remember really disliking your content years ago and i thought I'd at least watch a video from you about this show. Thankfully i was right for not watching your content. September 10, 2019 Reply Klojoost I honestly enjoyed the skesis part more than the gelfling part September 10, 2019 Reply Derek Roberts It would be very interesting to meet Chamberlain’s Mystic counterpart, they way I would imagine him, he would have the gift of understanding when others do not, whenever he thinks he would give a low humming sound while possibly even rubbing his chin while contemplating. September 10, 2019 Reply Marco Arruda This lady only enjoys Marvel-Disney and mainstream CGI movies September 10, 2019 Reply Sivianny Mauricio Prado Mena I usually love your reviews the ines that goes along with my opinions and even more the ones were we are totally opposite … in this one we are are definitely on the opposite side but is the first time that i do not feel logic to your argument ,i feel like you really missed the point of the series… if any this series almost overshadows the original almost make me wanna wish they end up the series with a remake of the movie. … i hinge watch this series cause i just couldn't stop watching it and most of the people i have recommended the series they also loved it despite the fact that they have never watched the original so they are not even hardcore fans…. September 10, 2019 Reply Toby Fairchild I’m a big fan of the original Dark Crystal and I couldn’t agree more with this review. It felt hollow and soulless. September 10, 2019 Reply Eastside Guy When was the last time Grace shelled out a positive review for something that wasn't Marvel, Disney, or DC? I'm shocked that the words Dark and Crystal even came out of her mouth, let alone hear an actual review. September 11, 2019 Reply Mick J I finished this the other day and it was nothing short of amazing! I cannot wait for season 2!!! September 11, 2019 Reply Trevor NEWMAN This is a review that is a bit of a miss here…..Not sure if you watched the same show as the majority of people. September 11, 2019 Reply Jesse O'Reilly It’s hilarious reading these comments and seeing that no one who watched this review agreed with it at all (myself included). Lol. Looks like Grace is kind of standing on an island on this one. September 11, 2019 Reply L Chavez Don't worry, we Gen X'ers will support this series. September 11, 2019 Reply V I I think this is a fair counterpoint to the general critical acclaim that this series and movie has received. There were a lot of meaningless plots and side quests that could have been cut for time and devoted to pacing and plot details. The Skeksis were featured WAY too much and there were too many. The first few episodes were painfully sluggish and the ending battle was extremely anticlimactic. It's a fun and mediocre series. September 11, 2019 Reply Sam McLatchie I have never disagreed with a review as much as this one. I didn't particularly care for the original film, but this series is a masterpiece. September 11, 2019 Reply Chris Scorpio What a horrible baseless review. Look at the rotten tomatoes reviews, especially from fans. People LOVE this series. I knew I shouldnt have trusted this review. September 11, 2019 Reply The Red Martian I WATCHED IT ALL IN ONE DAY IT WAS ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!!! IDK WHAT YOU’RE SMOKING BUT IT MUST PLEASE YOU TO KNOW THAT BASICALLY EVERY REVIEW FOR THIS SO FAR HAS BEEN DAMN NEAR PERFECT! ILL DEFEND THIS SHOW AND MY CHILDHOOD TO MY LAST BREATH!! September 11, 2019 Reply AcidHaux This channel has become the official disney youtube channel lol, trying to make people think this magnificent netflix series is bad.. Meanwhile promoting anything from disney as the best eeeeeverr.. September 11, 2019 Reply solararias WTF. First minute and a half and I thought I was watching someone that watched The Dark Crystal, had a stroke, forgot most of it and just made something up. First Beyond The Trailer video and I will NEVER entertain the idea of watching another one of these reviews. But that doesn't mean I don't appreciate your effort, Grace. But WTF, Game of Thrones, Happytime?? I have a feeling you didn't watch it alone. Something a critic should ALWAYS do. THE SERIES IS BRILLIANT IN EVERY SENSE; audio, lighting, plot, pacing, continuity. Only one part was flawed; Skeksis retreated and the Gelfling declared victory, and even so it is key to the story which leads into the original film. Crap review September 11, 2019 Reply solararias Something more cheerful for this absolute insult of a review. If Grace was a character from The Dark Crystal which character would she be??? Comments please. September 11, 2019 Reply Daniel I watched the original movie for the FIRST time like a week before the series came out, out of pure curiosity, and thought it was okay. But I’m 100% hooked on this series and am always eager to start another episode when one finishes. The puppetry doesn’t bother me at all and I even think after a while I barely even noticed it, it was part of the CHARM and aesthetic of the production… it was also extremely impressive September 12, 2019 Reply Scifi Raptor Wtf this show was amazing! September 12, 2019 Reply Big D Adore Hup!!! September 12, 2019 Reply KJYKJY1985 At the time of posting this comment, this show's Rotten Tomatoes score looks like this:86% for criticsAverage Rating: 8.42/10Total Count: 63Fresh: 54 Rotten: 994% for audiencesAverage Rating: 4.6/5Total Count: 572 It pains me to know that some people won't watch it because they take her opinion seriously. September 12, 2019 Reply Perro Bang Yeah you know, i really don't trust your word on this one. This is probably one of the best series i've ever seen in a long LONG time. I've never seen such a passionate crew of all traditional art forms come together and make something so grand. It's something I respect so much because you can see the love they put in this show. I've have yet to see any other series do that. September 12, 2019 Reply Gotah Gemini I DON'T like it at all! Totally agree with the review September 12, 2019 Reply Brion Ockenfels As a casual fan of the film I made the (I’ll-fated?) decision of watching Grace’s review before watching the series. Then watched the series… did Grace watch the same thing I did? Not only did the series meet expectations, it blew me them out of the water. It’s every bit as great of a show as Stranger Things or Black Mirror with no “bad” episodesOh, and Deet was probably my favorite gelfling character. September 12, 2019 Reply 525Lines The puppets weren't the best choice for some of the action scenes but it looks good. September 12, 2019 Reply Susan Storm I don't think she watched it September 13, 2019 Reply DramaKing NYC … Sometimes we really need to call into question your taste… This is you're worst review yet. September 13, 2019 Reply Shawn Campbell this show is exhausting to watch, its visuals are ridiculously hard to follow. I don't know who thought 10 episodes of dark crystal in terrible 1980s style puppetry was a good idea, but I guarantee its the nail in the coffin for Jim Henson stuff. children don't like this and there aren't enough 35-42 year olds with nostalgia to save it. excruciating to sit through. September 13, 2019 Reply MegaOldschool God this is an unbelievable review. This was a masterpiece of a series. And no I am not a hardcore fan, but I appreciate art, and yes I grew up with The Muppets. Damn this review just pissed me off. September 13, 2019 Reply Pablo Romero Lavanderos The first bad review of you lady…….mnnnn , itsa a shame September 13, 2019 Reply neni umana Wait….. what? I was intrigued from the very beginning lol. September 13, 2019 Reply Mark Valentine I’m surprised Grace didn’t enjoy the Dark Crystal. What an amazing achievement of story telling and craftsmanship. I’m personally sick of super hero movies and cgi cartoons. The Dark Crystal truly offers something fresh and unique! 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 September 13, 2019 Reply Jonathan Vazquez Started the video could already tell she was gonna talk crap. Stopped watching the video. Grace get over yourself. September 14, 2019 Reply Tim Neal Kind of a harsh review! I thought this was absolutely amazing and was a great piece of storytelling! I wasnt a huge fan of the original movie but I loved this series. I'm amazed they were able to achieve what they achieved with mostly puppets, and some cgi! Think you missed this one Grace Randolph! September 14, 2019 Reply dewberrydave I loved this series. Puppetry was so good I totally forgot I was watching a tv series with puppets. Thought the Skesis were great! September 14, 2019 Reply Drakkonahn I was totally shocked by how absurdly terrible this review was. September 14, 2019 Reply Trump plays PSVR It’s a real good show September 14, 2019 Reply Trump plays PSVR Did you really watch it? September 14, 2019 Reply Diego Ramos You are the dumbest person I have ever heard, this show is a total MASTERPIECE. September 15, 2019 Reply BlueMoon This show is a Masterpiece, I love everything about it. September 15, 2019 Reply Mohamed Fouda Puppets creeps me out, still I worked my way past episode 1 and then enjoyed the show, it’s terrific September 16, 2019 Reply Joe Blow Prequels are Trash!!!!! The puppets look like Crap!!!!! We didn't want a tv show, we wanted a sequel movie!!!!! September 16, 2019 Reply c0l1n_M4 Yes, what the world needs right now is more and more weightless disgusting CGI flying around in our faces and less practical effects that look and feel vastly more realistic. Makes sense. September 16, 2019 Reply miel the squid These puppets look more human than this girl lmao. September 16, 2019 Reply Hayden Cross I've never watched the original, this was my first time viewing anything about it (I saw one video talking about the movie and the guys experience with it as a kid, but that doesn't really count), and I absolutely loved it. Disagree with most points, especially the "only diehard fans" comment September 16, 2019 Reply Mustang Jones I enjoyed Dark Crystal. It was much better that the original. I look forward to season two. September 17, 2019 Reply 6102livesipmurt HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Garbage youtuber!!!! September 17, 2019 Reply Black Sun I like the story. It's art. September 17, 2019 Reply Juke Jonathan Yeah, it's pretty great. I WISH THERE WERE MORE SHOWS LIKE THIS! September 18, 2019 Reply Luke Frew Girl…no. Bye. September 18, 2019 Reply Socially Impaired I just watched the first three episodes last night and it was thoroughly entertaining and I can't wait to see what happens. This is an incredibly good show and I highly recommend it. September 18, 2019 Reply Ohris CG or Animated? better than nothing perhaps but that idea has nothing on puppets. Puppets all the way. The season was perfect and I hope we get another… September 19, 2019 Reply ZZM Average 9 stars for 6 of 10 episides. Oooops, Grace. September 19, 2019 Reply biff jiff This is a joke right? You don’t actually review tv/movies do you? Truly in shock. September 19, 2019 Reply The 9th Planet Uhm…No.Just.No Grace. September 21, 2019 Reply The 9th Planet This show has no charm ?F u Grace. September 21, 2019 Reply The 9th Planet I just wished they would take your essence already Grace.Your really pissing me off. September 21, 2019 Reply Bruce Lim The first review I've ever seen from Grace and now the last. September 22, 2019 Reply L3vyy This woman clearly doesnt understand the whole point of making this show September 22, 2019 Reply Monkeybash 3000 That review was a failure. The Dark Crystal series was good. September 23, 2019 Reply Takuan Soho Its awesome. The detail of the design is amazing. September 23, 2019 Reply Sakura Matou The Chamberlain plots your channel's Demise. September 23, 2019 Reply Nathan Williams In my opinion it was a masterclass in blending art and puppeteering, made by people at the top of their game and who clearly love and respect the source material. Totally blew me away, really can’t wait for more like this. But yeah it’s exactly like Happytime Murders and would of been better in cgi 😂 September 23, 2019 Reply laserwolf65 This was the worst of takes. September 26, 2019 Reply Lucas Calhoun Grace your opinion I do not share this series is amazing. It’s okay we can’t agree on everything September 27, 2019 Reply SKEKTEK THE SCIENTIST DISGUSTING JUST DISGUSTING September 29, 2019 Reply Big D I want Hup spin-off!!!!! September 29, 2019 Reply Big D Generally enjoy your reviews but definitely disagree. Love the world building and the characters especially Hup!! Hope we get a season 2 September 29, 2019 Reply Cuauhtemoc Estrada Totally can tell she did not watch the series with her full attention because she just criticizes the visuals of the film and not the story. September 30, 2019 Reply TributeOfDistrict13 When watching, I absolutely fell in love with the series and mythology of this world. Haven't watched the original film yet, but I hope to very soon! I do agree that there was too much of the Skeksis, they were quite frustrating to watch honestly, Gelfings all the way!! The music and cinematography was beautiful! September 30, 2019 Reply splabbity Now someone needs to continue the legacy of Gumby! Who doesn’t like claymation? Gumby! October 7, 2019 Reply Angelita Ellison I really loved this show. The characters were great. I love the puppets. I'm not a super fan of the original film, but I've seen it a few times and enjoyed it. The puppetry on display in the series is amazing. You can forget that they are not real. It's that same feeling I had watching Muppet characters doing interviews on talk shows. There is so much life in them. It was strange to watch the making of video and see them not moving. I don't think puppetry is antiquated. I do think CGI is overused. This series is definitely worth watching and I really hope it gets a second season. October 10, 2019 Reply Mike Claridge Wow – what an awful, disrespectful review. Comparing puppeteering to the bloody circus and suggesting that it's just as antiquated is woefully naive and borderline offensive. Watch the accompanying documentary, The Crystal Calls, and you will see what a landmark achievement of creativity, craftsmanship, effort and artistry it is. Yes, it takes a bit of time to adjust to the puppets and there's possibly a few too many episodes – but it is masterfully executed by all involved and is an absolute triumph. October 15, 2019 Reply BeldansFire Binged twice showed it to my construction worker friend and we binged it again. I felt more at a characters death than when they killed superman. October 17, 2019 Reply Domzdream As a massive Dark Crystal fan of the original I hate to agree with you , but I do. October 17, 2019 Reply fja 3 Wow, what a shallow review, the series is fantastic IMHO. Imagine all the work put into the series. October 23, 2019 Reply XAVIERCUERVO THIS SHOW IS PERFECT I WAS VERY ENTERTAINED IN EVERY Aspect this review was very disappointing and disrespectful October 28, 2019 Reply Grant Lauzon This is like the opposite of the IGN review. IGN Thought it was almost too good. October 31, 2019 Reply Rose Beauty Did we… not see the same show? November 2, 2019 Reply Jason Willey Grace as always with her empty headed appreciation for the art of cinema yet she secretly loved the 50 Shades movies because pretty naked bodies onscreen, puppets are both grotesque and endearing, imperfect yet charming, tangible and actually there on set instead of soulless nothingness made in a computer. November 3, 2019 Reply #Fun Times Anyone else think she didn’t finish the series which I feel explain most of her criticism November 4, 2019 Reply Add a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
