Anybody watching?

Loved the original movie when I was a kid.

Quoted from jedimojo:

Don't beat me up guys, but I remember watching the original Dark Crystal and have a soft spot for it. So, the other night my wife and I and the 13 year old son sat down to start the new series on Netflix.
I recognize the wonderful craft put into this new series but to be absolutely honest it just didn't connect with me. My son hated it and my wife was indifferent.
Maybe I hate happiness? LOL.
I was disappointed that I didn't enjoy it the way most of my friends do.

How far into the series did you get?
It took about 4 episodes for it to really come together for me.

Finished watching it today and really liked it.
Hopefully they will do a second season since it seams there is still a lot that transpires between the end of the series and the movie.

My thoughts without giving away any spoilers.
It does start out a little slow which is probably necessary for character build up and bring you up to speed on back story.
After about 3 or 4 episodes it comes together and by the end I felt I wanted more.
I really loved how true they stayed to the original movie with their artistic design by still using puppets and set miniatures.
At the same time the CGI that was used was done very tastefully and doesn't make the new series seem too modern and not fit the original.
Anyhow, I thought it was great explained a lot of the backstory leading up to the movie in a well thought out way.
