    Dark (German Netflix series)





    Anyone here watching the new German Netflix series Dark? An article called it the next Stranger Things, so I decided to check it out. Three episodes in and I am intrigued. You can watch it dubbed in English, but I prefer watching it with the original German dialogue and English subtitles. I always disliked dubbing, the way it sounds kinda ruins the atmosphere, and I rather watch things in their intended language. But this show is sure building up to something strange.

    This is next on our list after we finish Godless....and I'm with you 1000% on dubbing. To be honest, I can't recall a time where it didn't throw me off, haha.

    I just finished watching it today and I really liked it, one of my favourite series this year.

    German+ English subtitles is the way to go

    I'm watching it again! Fuck, this is good. I can't stop thinking about it.

    also, now I'm getting the Donnie Darko influence.

    So, has anyone binged season 3 already? Friends told me it's a 10/10, but I actually give more to people's opinion on here. Wait... did I just type that?

    No that's how bad some of my friend's taste is...

    I watched it over the last few days and I very much enjoyed it. I'm not as obsessive as some fans of the show are so there's probably more valuable opinions than my own out there but I'd say if you enjoyed the first two seasons I think you'll be satisfied. I may need to let it roll around my brain some more before I give it any rating. I will say without spoiling anything that there was one moment that reminded me of a scene from "Interstellar" and I was worried it would cop out at the end like that film did but what followed made sense and didn't derail anything that came before.

    I think it may just be the best overall netflix original. Because it's in German language most people won't bother to find that out. Makes me wonder if it will end up being remade in english somewhere down the line for a wider audience. Its also another example of how important it is to have writers determine if a story is complete instead of stretching a show out over 10 seasons or canceling it too soon.
