Is it a murder mystery? Supernatural tale? Science fiction thriller? Dark, the first German-produced series for Netflix, is all of the above -- and, many agree, totally bingeable. It’s also been called a darker, more adult Stranger Things, while reviewers have cited influences from David Lynch to David Fincher
When two children go missing in a small German town, its sinful past is exposed along with the double lives and fractured relationships that exist among four families as they search for them. The mystery-drama series introduces an intricate puzzle filled with twists and a web of curious characters, all of whom have a connection to the town's troubled history -- whether they know it or not -- and supernatural elements that tie back to 1986.
A beautiful, German-made minor-key tone poem in the shape of a puzzle-box sci-fi mystery television series.
