A new German series has recently landed on Netflix and if you haven't checked it out yet, you should!
I'm only a little way into the series, so cannot give a huge review on this yet, check here for one from wiki. All I can say is Dark is aptly named. Creepy music plays throughout each episodes along with atmospheric sounds. It rains a lot in this series helping to create the "dark" tone. Lots of scenes are shot at night or are shot in dimly lit places, giving this series a very eerie feel.
There's affairs, suicide, lies, betrayal, secret agendas, kidnapping, murder, oh and a bit of time travelling thrown in to boot!
It's being described on many review sites as being like Stranger Things. Well, for a start, the cast is older. Some of the main charterers are aged around 16 (the actors look at least 18) rather than the squeaky kiddies from Stranger Things and this is a adult drama with sex, violence and a wandering granddad in pyjamas. It's weirder too than Stranger Things.
I will post other reviews soon of other stuff I'm watching, but if you've seen The Kettering Incident, it has a similar-ish feel to that.
By default, the series comes with English dubbing, but I can't stand that, so I turned on the original German audio with English subtitles which is available in Netflix's settings.
When I've seen more episodes, I'll post more, but check it out if you can, it's available on Netflix right now.
Here's a trailer to wet your appetite:
