People are instantly put off watching Dark by the most ridiculous of stigmas - subtitles. Entirely produced in German, viewers use the feeble excuse of "I don't like reading and watching at once" as a valid argument for why they don't watch something like this. I will say now, that if this is your reason for not continuing with this show, then you are an idiot. Dark is some of the most gripping, most shocking and most amazing television I have ever seen; to compare it to another show, it gives me the same feeling of anticipation as Game of Thrones did back in the glory days. The only reason I haven't given it a 10 is because the third and final season is yet to be released, but I don't think this show can put a foot wrong.The story starts simply enough, but it spirals and develops like nothing else: in the small German town of Winden, the disappearance of a child rekindles memories of a similar incident 33 years before. Embroiled in this story are four main families, each with their own secrets to hide and motives to act. At the centre of it all is a mysterious cave, a nuclear power plant, and a time-traveller who brings more questions than answers. This, however, is not a sci-fi heavy, pothole-riddled story, but a genuinely brilliant drama about family ties, and their effect on the past and future.Time travel is often overwrought in cinema, struggling with clashing alternative storylines and people's actions not making any sense. Dark is magical in that this isn't an issue, and altering the past isn't something the show leans on for shock factor. Instead, the real mysteries are all in the present, and people's backstories are crucial in understanding the overarching plot. No character is wasted, and no conversation or action is not carefully considered in the grand scheme of things.The acting is phenomenal, and arguably the best I have ever seen in a large-scale production. This German cast should be internationally renowned, as every character (from the children to the elderly) is exceptionally cast and portrayed. My personal favourite would have to be Oliver Masucci (Ulrich), an unwavering but troubled policeman at the heart of the issue, but completely without answers. The resemblances between future and past selves is uncanny; the person responsible for casting each character should be given a knighthood, as this quality creates a cohesion between time periods that is so often unattainable.One of the most underrated qualities of Dark (and an issue that American/British productions are routinely guilty of) is that the characters themselves are not annoying. Let me reiterate this: when one character has information that another would benefit from, or if there's a general consensus that for safety, people should know something, they tell one another. Mother knows something dark about their husband? They tell their kids. Police officer working outside the parameters of the job finds a lead? They let their partner know. This is what's necessary to elevate television from decent to truly believable - scriptwriting that makes sense.The music, cinematography and period clothing is amazing, but almost goes without saying, given Dark's overflowing quality. No timeframe looks inconceivable, and the devoted set design means different iterations of buildings and characters look as you would expect. There are two integral pieces of music: one a piercing violin piece for the shock factor, and the other a Eurotrash record that becomes foreshadowing background noise. The production does use some CGI, but sparingly, a mercy that several other big-budget pieces could have learned from. By not overusing the effects, they are spectacular when you do finally see something revelatory.Dark should be Netflix's giant killer show alongside Stranger Things, but the stubborn nature of the average audience member means this show has become under appreciated. Regardless, I defy anyone to not enjoy this programme for its brilliance; I am yet to see something alternative that would rival what I have just watched. The final season arrives in 2020, and I firmly believe it will be some of the best television ever broadcast. Personally, I cannot wait.
