I do understand you, there!
The Dark Crystal is a great movie, but the true reason why I liked it since first watch were the skeksis! (I missed watching it at the "movies" since the movie itself was released the same year I was born, in '82!
...My first watch was when I was 7 or 8 yrs old I think, and VCR's were just being "born")
I fell for the skesis instantly...and never stopped loving them!
It's awesome to know you like my take on them, thank you!
