I finished the series but, uh---no. I still like the puppet work, the body language and physical performances of the Skeksis and Aughra are stand-out, but my opinion on the show hasn't changed an iota. I found the finger puppet segment with the Heretic and his Mystic pal the most emotionally engaging and interesting segment to watch out of it all.
I am the same way. I was so looking forward to this ever since I saw the trailer, by I have now tried three times to watch it. I get through the first episode and then fall asleep. I am so bummed! I will try again but I just find I cannot get into it.
