Intelligent, twisting, gripping, well written and well acted. Definitely worth a watch. Netflix gives you options - mine was the original German with English subtitles. That’s my recommendation.
Absolutely fantastic. I will admit that I hesitated at first, but then I thought why not give it a try. Gloomy and eerie, but good at it. The music throughout the series is really well chosen; it fits perfectly well. The writing is also top notch, as is the acting. You can either have it in English sound or in German sound with English subtitles. Honestly I wasn't bothered at all with the English sound, so if that's your thing you will be able to enjoy the series just fine (maybe you'll also be slightly less distracted as opposed to reading subtitles). Personally I chose the German sound, as it felt more natural.
Honestly, give it a try. Might very well be the best series I've watched this year.
Altough I'm german I rarely check out german TV shows. The last one was Deutschland 83 and that was like two years ago. Germany just hasn't figured TV out yet but that's another discussion.
When I heard Netflix was producing a german show I just had to check it out because Netflix has a great track record so far and Germany does have talent infront and behind the camera. But overall I think this show just fell flat. Good, but nothing great.
Fantastic visuals that shot very beatifull, the actors IMO are mostly great and the music/score can be beautiful but often gets obnoxious. But unfortunetly all of the characters are just bland and boring. None that I really cared for or found interesting/engaging.
The story was confusing at times (mostly because of the sheer amount of characters) and it heavily sets up future seasons without answering a lot of questions about this one and just left me unsatisfied at the end.
Still worth watching tough IMO and very bingeable similarly to Stranger Things.
But if you do watch it and then choose the subbed version. I checked out the dub really quick and it sounded horrible.
Watching the trailer it seemed like a really interesting show. Unfortunately the show itself was not as good in the end. There's too many characters you have to keep track of and you constantly get confused who's who now as people look so alike sometimes. All the scandals, time travel and so on makes you dizzy. Some parts of the story seem really involving but then they kind of screw up and it's not as amazing anymore. Most annoying was the music… the same "thrilling" sound effect for every single scene… even if it's not even remotely thrilling…
When I heard about this new Netflix series I was excited about watching it, until I realized it was in German...I don't know German and am not interested in missing the entire series while trying to read the subtitles. No thanks. :(
A German Lost, but way less interesting. A writing so poor that they have to explain everything three times. To hold up this nonsense plot they had to make characters so dumb it takes them 5 episodes to get anything.One more in a long list of Netflix' garbage
Extremely good show, just finished re-watching season 1 and I will probably re-watch again soon.Highly recommended to watch it in original German audio with subtitles. The English-dubbed version is just terrible.
Overly convoluted with characters that are difficult to keep track of and very little by way of payoff at the end of the season.
Very well done visuals in combination with good music choice . The series shows a very complicated plot. You have to listen carefully and follow throughout every second to fully understand what is happening. The end leaves options. The choice of actors was very well! Especially Noah.
Being married to a german man I've seen my fair share of international movies dubbed to german and it is absolutely obnoxious. I am very pleased to see that that hasn't been done here.Germany isn't exactly famous for producing good tv shows or films - with a few brilliant exceptions - and I was, if not intrigued, then at least interested to see how this turned out. So far I've only seen three episodes and it's not bad. A bit too heavy on the amount of characters one has to keep up with and it gets close to impossible when one then has to keep track of them in two times simultaneously... but so far I find it interesting. Might have to come back to this and update - for good or for bad. Wir werden sehen...
Time for an update and I am very pleased to say that this is good. This is actually VERY good. It does get even more confusing, in a way, when even more time lines are introduced, but by then I had a pretty good idea of who was when and where... and after ten episodes I am hooked. Pretty, pretty please - produce some more of this show... because after all, those last seconds were a mighty cliffhanger indeed.
Be a 10 if the words matched the mouths lol the voices they chose kiiiiiilllll me sometimes wtf
Just give me the season 2 dammit
When I first started it, my expectation was low. But man, did I love it? Recommended
I love this series... thank goodness it has been renewed for season 2, although with netflix we most likely will have to wait another year before it's released. Germany does pump out some very good film and television, the next I'm looking forward too is Deutschland '86.
Basically it's a huge paradox and Noah's story doesn't make any sense. The show has its moments, but I had higher expectations to be honest.
If you thought Stranger Things was great... this is even better!
What a mindfvck series. I hope season 2 will be available before 2019.
Fantastic series! It's a little hard to keep track of all the characters, but that's part of the fun. It makes you think and pay attention. The photography is beautiful and the soundtrack matches the mysterious and creepy vibe of the show. I'd recommend watching it in German with subtitles because then the performances are much more believable. 10/10
Don`t be put off by this being a foreign language tv show. Its really worth the time. A really good show about time travel.
Dont be put off by watching a foreign language show. This show is really good. Ive heard comparisons with Stranger Things. There certainly are parallels, but its really a very different show. Equally as good. If you like time travel, give it a shot.
t be put off by watching a foreign language show. This show is really good. I
I need the second season like right now! :D
Loved it! Well made! Looking forward to season 2!
this is precisely the type of mindfuck i like
Basically, Dark is the Futurama episode Roswell That Ends Well...
I really love this show. Hope there will be a 2nd season!
worth watching 10/10 from me i liked it all
How about changing the dubbing language to english? ;)
Well...just finished the first episode and do have to say that you shouldn’t let the language matter close your mind! Very impressive series actually! ;)
