Indeed. Adored Season 1. A full rewatch is next once I’m done with the Ozark.

I finished Dark Season 1 last night, cannot wait for work to be over so I can dig into Season 2. 

 

I think watching it from the beginning is really key to keeping it all together + who is who. I can't imagine watching 3 cold after a year gap.

Are there only going to be 3 seasons?  I watched the first but was terribly lost.  If there are no more coming it might make it easier to just binge it all at once.

Third season is the last.

Yeah three seasons telling a complete story arc from beginning to end. It needs no more.

netflix has a cool companion site showing the family trees + histories, with a summary of key moments for each person, where you can tell it which episode you've watched up to so it can filter out spoilers + changes, really cool.

Awesome.  I'm definitely going to make use of that.

You'll need it. It's a web of characters, motivations and well I can't get into why it becomes confusing without spoiling things. The first season was in serious danger of collapsing in on itself because of how much it had to juggle but its a testament to how good the show is that they were able to pull off what they did in the first season. I can't wait to dive into a rewatch and continue the viewing. I just finished S3 of the Ozark last night so I'm good to go to start!

 

...and for god sakes, put the show in its native German with subtitles.

I just finished watching Dark S2 again in anticipation of starting S3. I did the same before watching S2. It really rewards a re-watch like few other shows, simply due to the subject matter and how you flip around in time. But it also reveals the mastery of storytelling at another level. 
 

I’m not sure when I’ll start 3. I’m not in a huge rush. As I was watching 2 again, I realized how “real” these characters had become, and how I will genuinely miss experiencing the emotional rushes this show can bring alongside the intricate clockwork of a story.

Oh, and I keep forgetting to call out the stunning work of Ben Frost on the soundtrack to Dark. Perhaps what is most impressive is how seamlessly the visuals merge with the soundtrack. I think one of the reasons I consistently forget to bring it up is because the music blends in so well, it feels inseparable from the existential angst of the story. I've been a fan of his for for over 10 years, his earlier work is a bit more in-your-face, but conveys the same unsettling feeling of dread that is all over Dark.

 

Also, as long as I'm talking about audio, the 'clock tick' transition sound is a tiny little stroke of genius.

I finished watching “The Business of Drugs” which is a fantastic documentary series on Netflix hosted by Amaryllis Fox - a former CIA analyst. It looks at the drug trade and war from a socio-economic standpoint including market drivers, sales strategies and much more. It’s a very unique take that I found seriously compelling and she makes for a great host. She knows her shit and applies years of experience to explaining the issues. She also gets some amazing access to everything from low level dealers to distribution and much more across a variety of landscapes/locations. 
 

I can’t recommend it enough.

Same. I started last week and watched ep 4 a few days ago. I like how it steers clear of moralizing and sensationalism (for the most part) and focuses on the reality on the ground, both for manufacturers, dealers and law enforcement. Delving into the ethical and economic issues at each step. I really appreciate the global scope of the show too, not really focused on the US, but internationally. Although the set of issues covered are really universal.
