I thought this was going to be another Taylor Sheridan series.

Watched the first episode last night, and was totally hooked. Something is weird about it though ... I swear there are some people whose lips don't match what they say. Was this originally in multiple languages, and the non-english ones dubbed to english?

It looks like it defaults to "English - Dubbed" but there is also an "English (Original) available". Here is some more background: https://www.netflix.com/tudum/articl...-dubbing-video

There are several soundtrack options for the series. I'm listening in original English and there are people speaking in Polish, Danish, German, French, Cantonese, and possibly other languages. The subtitles provide translation for the other languages, so if you are listening in all English it is dubbed.

Really enjoying this series, binged about 5 episodes over the weekend and plan to finish it over the rest of the week. A very interesting storyline and a nice mystery unfolding so far. Looks like another win for the creators of Dark.

Finished this last night and really enjoyed it. I would be very interested in seeing where a second season went and IMDB has the cast listed as 2022- so I am sort of hoping they give this a season two. Not to spoil anything but it can wrap up and end after the last episode and it would move in a completely different direction if a second season was on offer. I really like the characters so I would for sure be on board. It's currently the number one show on Netflix so there is a decent chance they go for season two.

Well that was an interesting ending. I'm not sure I really understood it. I mean, I got what happened, but I'm still not sure why.

I'm liking this show... trying to figure out wth is going on after 5 episodes. I am not a fan of supernatural shit just happening to happen (like the bug opening doors or the boy teleporting to the cabinet). That said, I have fallen asleep - briefly - during every single episode lol. I find a lot of the middle portion of each show to be kinda boring and then we get a nice surprise at the end. Love the 70's rock songs to wrap up each episode too.

There is a reasonable and good explanation for things like the bug. It's a show with an interesting twist and a good story arc for sure.

Don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed the show and the ending, but the more I think about it, I don't know if I would say it's an interesting twist. It's kind of insulting, really.

My thoughts on the ending...
Spoiler:
The takeaway I got from the ending was that she was stuck in stasis and having trouble waking up. I think her husband IRL was already dead and his virtual self was trying to wake her up so she could start waking the crew up. The "virus" was the system being corrupted due to them being in stasis for a while and the system has been repeatedly trying to wake her up. If she hadn't woken up soon the system was going to fail imminently. Again that was what I took away from her father and other characters saying if she could not wake up she never would and all the crashed ships were previous iterations of the simulation trying to end.

That's all fine and good, but when it comes down to it, the twist isn't far removed from one of the LAMEST twists imaginable, especially after watching 7.5 hours
Spoiler:
it was all just a dream, none of this was real

I'll watch it after I'm done with "The English". Reminds me a bit of one of my slightly obscure favorites:
