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 »

Incredible, complicated drama knotted by Time Travel...
13 August 2020 | by Rabh17See all my reviews

Gritty. Complicated. emotionally bare knuckled.

That's just the drama involving several families in the ill-fated town of Winden as they deal with the strange disappearance of several children. You have the normally twisted mess of a small-town where everyone knows everyone else and how they all end up making bad choices and try and keep sordid secrets from one another...

...But then you add to the mix the fact that their squabbles span at more than one Time zone. And they don't even realize it!

As an American Viewer, I am awed at the performances of every actor. And I am in awe of the tenacity of the Writers and Producers for even attempting to tell a multi-phasic drama convoluted by Time Travel.

What makes it work masterfully is NOT the Time Travel aspect... It's the wrenching personal dramas of ordinary folks who aren't even aware just how screwed up their world actually is because of interlocking causalities that keep folding back on themselves...

That's the amazing Puzzle for the Viewer. You will find yourself just PAUSING the show as you sit back and try and connect the dots: Who is with Who and WHEN?

Warning! You will Need to KEEP TRACK OF ALL THE CHARACTERS!
