Hardcore sci fi fans will love this cerebral show that tackles time travel paradoxes head on. Casual fans might not like how hard it is to follow. The dubbing for English isn’t great and diminishes the show a bit, so watch in German it you don’t kind subtitles.

This is another overrated TV show. Coworkers recommended me to watch it. Dark has quite good reputation and rating on the Internet as well. So, I started watching. Watched whole first season and now started second one and all I can say it's very slow, confusing and uninteresting. Characters are boring and shallow, plot is also very simple and uninteresting - just about time travelling. Some characters jump from present to past or future and that's it. There's no tense or anything that would leave you attached to it, having a desire to watch episode after episode. I can't wait when second season ends, so this boredom ends. The only thing I like about this TV show is it's main soundtrack.

A delightfully supernatural treat. Dark has been added to my list of favorite shows. There's an English dubbed version out there but I fully recommend getting subtitles and watching the original German.

In the town of Widen, young boys begin to go missing. Everyone in town has dark secrets they are hiding. The lights flicker, dead birds fall from the sky and there is something unusual in the caves out in the forest.
All the weird stuff going on is similar to events that took place back in 1986 and even before that in 1953 in Winden.
As both the towns and residents secrets are revealed, the story takes on a truly sinister and disturbing outcome.
This show is full of mystery, secrets, suspense and even time travel. It has a Stranger Things vibe to it, but more of an adult version with a time traveling aspect instead of a monster from another dimension. Every episode will have you on the edge of your seat and contains clues to what is to come.
A shocking truth is revealed in episode #5 and things only spiral more out of control from there. There are many cheating couples and lots of getting it on, especially in the first season. While I was able to guess the strangers identity before it was revealed, most clues are well hidden and hard to catch unless you rewatch after finishing.
The second season ends with a huge cliffhanger that has me anxiously waiting for a season 3.
Dark is definitely a binge worthy show worth checking out!
