1. Dark S02: Netflix’s Time-Travel Masterpiece

Dark’s season 1 made its debut on Netflix way back in Dec 2017. Now, after almost two years of wait its season 2 has finally arrived, and unlike Game of Thrones season 8, it’s totally worth it!

Dark is set in the fictional town of Winden in Germany and revolves around the lives of four families – their relationships, secrets and deceits.

 

Make no mistake, it’s not your usual family drama, there are twists and turns at every step and the fate of the world is at stake. Will they be able to prevent it? Only time will tell.

“Yesterday, today and tomorrow are not consecutive, they are connected in a never-ending circle. Everything is connected.” – The Stranger (Dark, Season 1)

What’s New?

Intricate storyline: Dark’s season 2 spans across 5 timelines, introduces us to a new character and ends with a plot twist that leaves us with more questions than answers. 

In doing so, it successfully delivers a plot that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Blink and you will definitely miss out on something important. 

Mini spoiler alert: The question isn’t ‘when’ anymore. 

Great soundtrack: Ben Frost’s chilling soundtrack sets the tone perfectly for all the mysteries that are unravelling in the town of Winden. Earphones recommended.
