Does anybody watch this?

I am almost done with the third season. This show is fascinating and well acted and compelling… And I do not have much of a clue regarding what is going on, except in broad strokes.  It’s a pretty unique experience for me; normally, if a show is difficult to follow, it’s due to poor writing.  Here, I feel like everything makes sense, I just need a flowchart and multiple rewatchings.

Haven't seen it but have considered it, because I heard that it's pretty intriguing, but for some reason I've thought it was in German with subtitles—is that true?

There’s a dubbed version, but they did a really good job with the dubbing.  Normally I find dubbed films to be unwatchable, but somebody knew what they were doing on this one.

Now you got me intrigued, I gotta check it out.

Very vaguely:  It starts out as a missing person story, and morphs into time travel related to a nuclear apocalypse

I watched last night the 8th episode from season 3 and I feel exactly the same way... I have no idea what's going on but I can't stop watching.

It seems like an advanced improved version of lost  that makes more sense. It is not for everyone (my wife hates it) but it worth a try.

I've been contemplating starting this as well. Seems that it is getting some great buzz. They dubbing turned me off a bit so it is good to know that it isn't a big distraction.

Watched first episode last night, thanks, Roy. I'm running out of stuff to watch. (My wife and I just blazed through Line of Duty (British series) and Hidden (Welsh series).

I like the complicated set up of characters/situations. Not sure if I care for the sci fi aspect to it. Will give it more before judging. Reminds me of Lost, which I liked the first couple of seasons but increasingly got tired of its lack of direction/resolution.

Dark is pretty good. It's a show that is more fun to watch a second time as you are now clued in more and see more hints.

I tend to get Netflix only during the winter so haven't seen season three yet. Hope it will be as interesting as the first two.
