Ok, serious question folks, how in the hell have one of my fellow geeks not written about this show yet?!?! We’re seeing more and more reboots and remakes these days, so I had low expectations for this prequel, especially since capturing Jim Henson’s perfect puppets and the feeling you got watching them as a child is hard to replicate, but somehow, they did it.
Welcome back my slimy reptilian followers. I spent awhile scratching my head with my claw this week, thinking what would be a good topic for the month of December here at your favorite monster adoring weekend column. Star Wars has loads of species we could talk about, The Southern Vampire Series has many more monsters than fangers, and Middle Earth is crawling with creatures we could discuss, but for some reason the holiday spirit made me think of Jim Henson. So folks, this month I am dedicating my posts on this column to creatures designed and imagined by the infamous Jim Henson, a mastermind in the world of fantasy. Today we start with your favorite antagonist from The Dark Crystal: Skeksis.
