' I could have used a distraction, but the Netflix puppet show about a mystical world filled with elfin-like heroes and adorable furry creatures offered no relief.

Instead, I saw reflections of these real-world nightmares, including deceit, environmental destruction, and death.

Was I reading too far into it, my mind warped by the onslaught of tragedies presented by cable news?

As I interviewed the cast and artists behind the show, I told them about my view of it.

Co-executive producer and writer Jeffrey Addiss had the most succinct answer:

"We wanted it to be upsetting."

Mission accomplished. '

' In the new series, set long before the original 1982 movie, the elfin Gelfling are being tricked by the ruling Skeksis, a small cabal of giant, snot-filled, vulture-esque villains. The Skeksis' mostly hands-off dictatorship begins to turn when their sniveling scientist discovers they can grow more powerful and even approach immortality by draining and consuming the "essence" of the noble Gelfling. The first episode ends with what seems to be one of the two Gelfling protagonists having her essence drained, a torturous process that has her screaming until she turns to dust.

To a person, everyone I spoke to, from Addiss and his creative partner Will Matthews to director Louis Leterrier and star Jason Isaacs, laughed when I mentioned how striking it was to watch this innocent puppet be tormented and mutilated. Many said that in the writers' room and on set, they had a shared mantra: "This ain'tΒ The Happy Crystal."

It's a fun show, no doubt, with fanciful creatures and gorgeous new sets, but those things only serve to make the dark parts even scarier. Leterrier says that he saw the original film, which was directed by Jim Henson and Frank Oz, when he was far too young, and it left him "traumatized." It also inspired him to be a filmmaker, and so he sought to bring back bothΒ the classic puppetry techniques with which the original film was madeΒ and its macabre and downright sinister undertones.
