Dark (2017)Created by Baran bo Odar and Jantje FrieseThis weekend, I finished watching the 10 episodes of this German show, made for Netflix. "Dark" is a blend of dark family drama, science fiction and horror. The core plot line of the show concerns the disappearance of a 12 year old boy in the sleepy town of Winden, which mirrors events from 33 years ago. We are introduced to four families from the town – Nielsen, Tiedemann, Doppler and Kahnwald – whose stories span multiple time lines, where past, present and future influence one another. Knowing more might actually detract from your enjoyment of the show. You have to pay attention and follow the characters, to the show's credit, whenever you experience a feeling of confusion, there'll typically be a flashback or insert shot to help you understand.I enjoyed the show greatly. The ending is open for future seasons, and while the themes aren't exactly something never been done before, it's inventively packaged. The production values are fantastic (the gorgeous cinematography is on the Alexa 65), the music and soundtrack is great as is the acting. IMDb says the show has a Dolby Atmos sound mix. Certain exposition heavy scenes called attention to themselves otherwise the tone is spot on. I watched it in German with English Subtitles. There is an English dub available but I prefer listening to the original language.You might hear comparisons with "Stranger Things", to me, the shows are very different. This show reminded me more of "Donnie Darko" and "Back to the Future" than anything else. If you've just finished your recent binge watch and are looking for something to fill the void, go for "Dark" – it's a really good show. This is a drawing of one of the characters from the show. I don't want to mention who it is, because part of the experience lies in letting the show gradually reveal things to the audience, and I wouldn't want to come in the way of that. It was drawn with @prismacolorPencils, 0.5mm 2B pencil, and a white gel pen on Canson paper. I think this is one of my best drawings till date, I'm really pleased with the way it came out. #308 / 11-Dec-17
