Re: Dark on Netfix

Crazy show. Definitely has a Primer feel to it.

Only real complaint: Everyone has a time machine. Everyone going back and forth and somehow it's all kept secret.

Re: Dark on Netfix

Season 2 was hard to binge because there was so much to take in. I felt like a needed a break after each episode. Episode S2E6 was my favorite and probably the best of the series. Can’t wait for tomorrow. If they can nail the ending this will go down as a top 10 show.

I finally read one of those guides. Godamn so worth it. I was at 75% understanding and this took me to 100%. There are so many little sneaky things this show does where they show you a character in the past for like 2 seconds and the guides help there.

Re: Dark on Netfix

I'm halfway through S3, and will finish next weekend.

Overall, so far it's not quite the standard of S1 and especially S2. My main problem is the introduction of new characters and storylines in what is essentially the third act. This is a mistake in any narrative. Meanwhile, other more established characters/storylines are given little screen time or sidelined.

In addition, there are a couple of story threads that just don't appear to be going anywhere relevant. This is largely a problem of pacing, as with only 4 episodes to go we should be building a momentum to the finale, but a lot of it is still very pedestrian.

Iím through 5 episodes and I agree. Though it does start picking up in episode 5.

Strongly disagree, I'm not sure there is any character introduced in S3 that doesn't matter to the bigger picture.

I found the ending very satisfying and the Netflix Dark site to be invaluable:


https://darknetflix.io/en

It allows you to select your insertion point into the series so you can poke around without spoiling anything.

Just finished it. GOAT show. Best ever time travel tv/movie ever created.

Definitely need to rewatch the season now that I know where each piece belongs.

The ending was very satisfying

That's sort of my point. If they mattered to the bigger picture, they should have been introduced earlier than s3. It just felt like the main plot ground to a halt for 4 episodes while they had to go around the block fleshing these characters out.

Re: Dark on Netfix

I suffered from some Dark fatigue while watching all three seasons in a row. It's a lot to take in and was mentally exhausting at times. I really didn't like the 3rd season that much. I think it was a combination of being tired of thinking so hard, the show going a little over my head and season 3 being uneven. Season 3 felt slow to get going and then episode 7 was rushed with it jumping time periods non stop. The ending was what I expected and really the only way I thought this show could go out. I need to take a break from TV for a while after watching this.

Re: Dark on Netfix

Started season 1, enjoying it so far. The overall cinematography and soundtrack fit this story really well. Still a little confused overall but I suspect some of the characters/story are going to be explained as this continues. A lot to think about with each episode for sure.

If I could go back and start over, I'd check this site a ton, like ~once per ep probably. Seems like a great resource to follow along with.

ok good to hear. I binged S2 like a savage. At S3 I've paused most of the way into episode 3 because I'm frankly a bit bored. But I'll wait till patio season is over and give it the attention it deserves. Cold winter months are good for Dark.

Re: Dark on Netfix

My brain really hurt a lot thinking through a lot of the events of Season 3. I feel like the show would benefit from a rewatch greatly if there was some sort of director's edit with a panel on the side of the screen telling us what characters are being shown, their parents/kids names (if relevant), and what year they are from, what year it is, etc. And this was WITH me rewatching S1+S2 over the course of 2-3 days immediately before going straight to S3.

Overall an amazing show though. Insane thinking that (Series ending + S3 spoilers)

Just finished. I absolutely love this show, but even after a rewatch, the first 4 episodes of S3 are a grind.

However, it does indeed pick up from there, and I agree it's a satisfying ending to a show that was always more about the journey than the destination.

It's definitely an all HoF show, but I stand by my original comment about the introduction of the OW and new characters at such a late stage. However, S2 was flawless viewed as a standalone, and I wouldn't want the OW stuff bogging that down either. My reaction at the end of S2 when they introduced the OW was meh, so maybe I just didn't really care for that idea as I was too invested in the original characters and story.
