Drop What You’re Doing and Watch DefunctTV’s Jim Henson Special

A very convincing plea from Stubby the Rocket over at Tor.com.

We have just under three weeks left until The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance hits Netflix, and what better way to prepare for the long-awaited sequel than a six-part ode to its creator? On Sunday, DefunctTV uploaded the last episode of their miniseries on Jim Henson’s “life and works,” and we’re not hyperbolizing when we say you should drop whatever it is you’re doing and go watch the whole thing right now.

Over the course of three hours, broken down into ~30-minute chunks, DefunctTV takes viewers through the legendary puppeteer’s first Muppet show, Sam and Friends, to Sesame Street, The Muppet Show, Fraggle Rock, Muppet Babies, and finally, the ill-fated The Jim Henson Hour and Henson’s untimely passing.
