    Found this after finishing Altered Carbon. Amazing show, had to turntoff the American dubs and just watch it German subtitled though.

    I don't think the comparisons to Stranger Things are accurate, though this show is stellar in its own right. Cant wait for season 2.

    Was recently talking about the grandfather paradox to the Mrs before we seen this.

    Definitely worth the watch but i wouldn't call it binge-able. Its a bit heavy/dark for that.

    Man theres so much choice! I'd consider myself caught up on whats great and new (I'd prioritise comic stuff like Punisher and Preacher due to my own bias) but I'd get lost in the amount of good series out at the minute.

    Havent even started Peaky blinders.

    As @Fontaine said, best way to watch this is in German with English subtitles

    Watched 10 minutes with it dubbed and thought “this is *” :56: far better the proper way

    Great programme btw.

    Thought it was quite good. Definitely worth a watch for sci-fi fans. Interesting idea.

    Watched this over the last few days. Have to say it's absolutely fantastic and already on it's way to being one of my favourite TV shows.

    Gripping with a number of interesting characters and a bit of a mindfuck of a plot. The visual style is top notch as well. Gutted that season two is still a while away.

    The comparisons to Stranger Things are somewhat understandable - small town, kid goes missing, some of it is set back in the day etc. But that's where the comparisons stop. This is much more sci-fi and mature. Saw someone saying it's like Stranger Things meets Lost. Think that's pretty accurate.

    3 episodes in. It's every bit as good as you'd expect.

    Just watched the first three tonight - honestly don't get why this show isn't more hyped. The writings brilliant.

    Think I’ve got one or two left of season 1 but seems season 2 is phenomenal again.


    Think the fact it’s German, and it’s in the same era as Stranger Things which is Netflix’s crown jewel.
