August 6, 2019
The beginning of 'Dark' is very worth watching, both for the excellent atmosphere achieved and for the ideas it plays with. [Full Review in Spanish]
May 30, 2019
Having Stranger Things withdrawals? Tune in to the eerie supernatural German Netflix show that will make you think twice about stepping into caves.
March 26, 2019
With Dark, Netflix related a complex world of time travel with the intricate symbolism of alchemy and the foundational principles of greek tragedy. [Full review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 8.7/10
December 3, 2018
This could be because it's very complicated, following three different time lines involving multiple characters at different ages, but take it from us, there are serious rewards for the patient.
October 18, 2018
Its historical vision is distinctive, a past and present filled with angst and cynicism triggered by unsolved disappearances and public corruption.
July 9, 2018
The Netflix series plays with temporary trips and their paradoxes to effectively tell the mysteries and secrets of a small town. [Full Review in Spanish]
June 21, 2018
Dark feels like a version of Lost folded in on itself, in which the action on the magical, spacetime-traveling Island and the secret-revealing, surprise-laden, character-driven backstory flashbacks all occur simultaneously.
June 19, 2018
The sci-fi series is deeper and far more evocative of Twin Peaks, weaving a twisty tale that revolves around four interconnected families in a small German town.
March 29, 2018
If Stranger Things is a big bowl of macaroni and cheese made with that lurid orange cheddar you can only get in America, Dark is a gamy Old World stew ladled out from a pot that has been bubbling away for centuries.
March 26, 2018
But Dark, while being a good series, and having some truly intriguing aspects, doesn't have enough of an emotional hook to make it a truly standout show.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
February 27, 2018
Minds blown yet? Mine is too. Not to worry, though. Dark has already been renewed for another season, and thankfully, they're looking at a full year from now for its release.
February 14, 2018
Dark is a masterfully filmed series that slowly and grippingly explores the labyrinth of secrets in a deeply troubled town.
January 22, 2018
Dark is one of those shows that stays with you long after you've finished watching.
January 4, 2018
Dark stumbles, with no small amount of self-importance, into the same erroneous belief as Westworld, The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones: That the twist in the story ... is enough to sustain a narrative that lacks the scaffolding of strong characterization.
December 29, 2017
Dark is compellingly moody with some interesting sci-fi ideas and questions about fate. But you may be hitting "pause" a lot, trying to clarify who is doing what, and when.
December 26, 2017
Is it the new Stranger Things? I don't know, but I'm intrigued enough to stick around and find out.
December 21, 2017
Dark is a serious, serious affair, and once the curtain has lifted over the mystery in this plot-heavy narrative, all that is left is a bunch of humourless and unremarkable characters.
December 19, 2017
It feels safe to say Dark may be one of Netflix's strongest shows to date.
December 11, 2017
Dark doesn't have the nostalgia hook of Stranger Things, and so may not have the same broad appeal, but it's every bit as gripping and arguably spookier.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
December 8, 2017
Dark encompasses all the connotations that come with its title, for better or worse. A German fairytale about humanity's reach and our desire to exceed it, the series can go lots of exciting places if it lands a season 2.
