TV-14...... Not TV-PG

The dark crystal is a very interesting show. The story is very good. But it is a little bit disturbing. The creatures are terrifying, or at least they would be for a 10 year old. Also, in one of the episodes a character is tortured by getting his eye ripped out and then eaten. The show has mild violance other then that but I still would not suggest it to any 10 year old. This show jusy barely skimmed the TV-PG rating in my opinion.

A thrilling adventure, but has some nightmare fuel

This series has a lot of things to enjoy about it, but some scenes are very intense with disturbing images(for small children). Their are torture scenes, though they’re very vague. But this show has an impressive amount of heart and care put into it. Though, the most impressive aspect is the cinematography and digital effects. Overall a very interesting show with a lot of things to like.

Satisfying For Fans of Original, Not For Kids

First thing you should know about The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance is that it is a prequel to Jim Henson’s classic movie The Dark Crystal. The original movie is notorious for it’s dark atmosphere and sometimes disturbing visuals.
Age of Resistance is masterfully created: Its puppetry and scenery even more impressive than the original. Also, the ability to use CGI makes the action better and allows seemingly impossible puppet movements.
But, with better graphics comes the issues of violence. Age of Resistance whole-heartedly embraces the original’s dark tone, and even adds some violence. Several scenes (such as when one antagonist beats a protagonist to death, causing blood to spatter on the walls) actually push the TV-PG limit. Aside from the dark atmosphere and several bloody and disturbing scenes, this show is incredibly inspiring and visually beautiful. Of course it depends on the child, but mostly 12 and up could handle it.
