I’ve been meaning to write something about the second season of Netflix’s twisty time-travel series Dark, but just haven’t found the time. (Ha!) So instead, I’ll just point you to Emily Todd VanDerWerff’s excellent piece on the show’s intricacies:
It is not a show that wants to prompt intense emotional responses in you or even a show that really wants you to understand it. It only works if you become obsessed with it and start charting out its many timelines, characters, and iterations. And don’t we all need something like that?
Filming for Dark’s third and final season began earlier this summer, so hopefully we won’t have to wait too long for some resolution of the show’s fascinatingly labyrinthine plot.
