Also, for the first time in thirty years, JHC are working on two shows at once! Disney+ is bought Earth To Ned, a late night show that looks vaguely like Farscape meets Space Ghost: Coast to Coast.

I liked how it was a cult classic movie with a twist ending, was completely self contained, and never got any sequels or prequels EVER.

>Self contained

On which planet? The movie literally was Additional Reading and Background Lore: The Movie.

The director's cut was tons of bits the director had a story about but didn't film for time.

Never saw it, but I saw the Robot Chicken parody. Not a big fan of that but I respect it.

The very definition of Low Concept concept. Basic monomyth hero plot that was going around at the time but the practical effects was the highlight.

The series is basically high concept, provided you have seen the movie.

That's what made me stop watching the film in the first place.

BUT THEN YEARS LATER I TRIED AGAIN AND HAVE TO TELL YOU........ you're wrong. The ending makes it all worthwhile.

Could you elaborate on that? I mean Jen goes on a journey, sometimes there is magic, he has supernatural guidance, it's pretty step for step.

The series has a lot of developments but it basically can be summed up with, "Zombie birds eat midget elves to live. Midget elves find out. Midget elves try to rebel from zombie birds."

Once you understand that Jen is NOT who the story is about, that the story was about the Mystics and Skeksis all along, THAT is the twist that makes the boring slow first half worthwhile.
