James is 17 and is pretty sure he is a psychopath. Alyssa, also 17, is the cool and moody new girl at school. The pair make a connection and she persuades him to embark on a road trip in search of her real father.
Having gone missing seven years ago, the previously blind Prairie returns home, now in her twenties with her sight restored. While many believe she is a miracle, others worry that she could be dangerous.
Year 2019. Events take place in a small German town called Winden. Two months ago, Jonas returned to the school with his father committing suicide. A couple of weeks ago when he came back, he learns that a child is lost in the town. Days of searching have remained unsuccessful and the whole town is on the thorn. With the disappearance of one of the children who have gone out to have fun together in order to get away from the tension of their parents, things get mixed up in the town.Written by
The show was greenlit by Netflix in February 2016. The second season was ordered in December 2017. See more »
When characters use telephones throughout the series, the typical American "warbling" ringing tone is heard instead of the German "beeping" ring. Also, when speed-dialing is used, the touch-tones are heard in rapid sequence as in America; phones in Germany don't do this. See more »
I can't agree with the reviewer before me. They are not trying to copy Stranger Things, and I don't want to go into 'copying' at all - because Stranger Things has parallels to a few games, movies and books that have been popular before it was even in the making.
'Dark' is slow paced in the beginning, but it keeps you on the edge of your seat. It is tense, the cinematography and acting is great. There is so much more depth to it than the mentioned Stranger Things. It's not bloated with special effects and didn't have a Hollywood budget. This is how TV should be. It has got a Donnie Darko feeling to it.
I guess the majority of people complaining about the pace would also complain about Blade Runner 2049 or Interstellar...so please, just stick to Marvel movies. :)
