protheproton ,

Wow!!!

I’m usually not one for commentary podcasts, but I just love The Dark Crystal so much and this podcast has so many amazing things in it, I just can’t stop listening!!! I definitely recommend it to any and all Dark Crystal fans!

SnappsterNW ,

A good show gone bad.

Social/Political alignment and promotional messages are increasingly being infused and now being featured. I plugged in hoping for a trip to Thra and ended up with more of the messaging I was expecting to take a break from.
