Trivia

The game that Bartosz and Jonas play in episode 5 of season 1 is called the Surge by German developer Deck 13. The game could be best described as Sci-fi Dark Souls However it does not feature a co-op mode. That was probably a tech demo provided for the show. See more »

Goofs

When characters use telephones throughout the series, the typical American "warbling" ringing tone is heard instead of the German "beeping" ring. Also, when speed-dialing is used, the touch-tones are heard in rapid sequence as in America; phones in Germany don't do this. See more »

Dark, gritty and interesting.
1 December 2017 | by sarah_czeSee all my reviews

I can't agree with the reviewer before me. They are not trying to copy Stranger Things, and I don't want to go into 'copying' at all - because Stranger Things has parallels to a few games, movies and books that have been popular before it was even in the making.

'Dark' is slow paced in the beginning, but it keeps you on the edge of your seat. It is tense, the cinematography and acting is great. There is so much more depth to it than the mentioned Stranger Things. It's not bloated with special effects and didn't have a Hollywood budget. This is how TV should be. It has got a Donnie Darko feeling to it.

I guess the majority of people complaining about the pace would also complain about Blade Runner 2049 or Interstellar...so please, just stick to Marvel movies. :)
