Why We’re Obsessed With ‘Dark’
At the center of Netflix’s first German-language series is a group of high school teens (and their families) dealing with the disappearance of a classmate in a small town nestled next to a nuclear power planet. There are even dark tunnels that lead to even darker places. And it’s packed full of nostalgic visual cues. Sound familiar? Yes, the show is garnering lots of comparisons to Stranger Things, but don’t let that fool you. Dark is a much darker, more complex mystery about interconnected families with secrets going back decades. In fact, if you were to compare it to anything, set your references to the likes of Twin Peaks, David Fincher stories (hey, Mindunter is also streaming on Netflix), The Returned or season one of Top of the Lake. Either way, spend the weekend taking in this mystery-box series that comes complete with revelations, twists and cliffhangers.
Dark is now streaming on Netflix.
