    At long last something else in the Dark Crystal world.
    I guess it will be about the milking of Gelfing's life essence because the power of the Skeksis comes from the Crystal which is no secret.

    Netflix has the luxury of no rating system so their stuff can be anything from rated G up to rated NC17 if they want.
