Critic Reviews for Dark Season 2

All Critics (28) | Top Critics (5)

"Dark" is a rewarding investment in time spent in untangling the family trees and timelines. It's also an intriguing experiment in how looped events and themes of determinism can play into growth and evolution.

I will not say "Dark" was over-hyped; until the last four episodes of the second season or so, I was entranced by "Dark's" imagination.

"Dark," the German time-travel thriller, is often compared to the Duffer Brothers' nostalgia trip. But in its second season, its ambitions are closer to "The Wire."

Jul 16, 2019 | Full Review…

Perhaps the best way to enjoy "Dark" is just to let it pass over you, as weightily satisfying as the thunk that the doors of the show's many German station wagons make when they're shut.

If you can take the morose vibe, the series is beautifully filmed in grey/green hues, and maintains its mood of impending doom rather brilliantly.

An ambitious and revelatory season. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jul 31, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

What an amazing piece of work! The best sci-fi series of the 21st century. Everything is too good to be true.

Nov 19, 2019 | Full Review…

Dark's second season more than delivers on the series' characteristic and circuitous time-travel action.

Jul 9, 2019 | Full Review…

It takes the traditional beginning, middle and end story structure and tears it apart to build something brilliant and entirely unpredictable... But if you thought season one was a wild ride, the second chapter went to places even we weren't prepared for.

Nov 18, 2019 | Full Review…

An intelligent and complex series that doesn't talk down to viewers, this is one of the most intriguing shows out there, with a second season that maintains the high quality of the first.

Nov 18, 2019 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

Dark takes this quintessential time travel paradox and cubes it, adding so many paradoxes and logic wrinkles that keeping track of them all can give you a headache. But there's something entertaining about the intellectual rigor all the same.

Sep 6, 2019 | Full Review…

The second season of Dark shows that it is one of the most original and ambitious Netflix shows to date, without even being an American production. [Full Review in Spanish]

Audience Reviews for Dark: Season 2

    HOLY SHIT!!!!!!! This show is mind-blowing. Dark is making it's way to being one of my favorite shows alongside Fringe, Halt and Catch Fire, The Leftovers, and Game of Thrones. Just when you think that things can't get any weirder, they somehow manage to throw a curveball at you. Every episode is an adventure. Unlike a lot of TV shows these days, Dark has True Tone and character. It's an understatement to say that the characters change and evolve over time. The interactions between the same individual at different points in their life is amazing. The writers, the actors and the directors jointly do an amazing job on every single front. I particularly enjoy the musical montage at the end of every episode. It feels a little cliche, but definitely adds a lot given how many different moving pieces there are at any single point in time. I also really like the ominous choice of music at the end of every episode, which is surprising given how much I hate the intro sequence. I realize there is a lot of messed up shit going on, and that everyone in the show is German, but I do feel that the characters are a little too serious most of the time. You barely every get to see any of them smile amidst all the madness. It's really interesting to see how so many people manage to accept the fact that they play a very small role in the grand scheme of things. Only Jonas/Adam are truly key to everything, and I honestly still can't make up my mind about Adam. The only thing that bothers me about the interactions between Adam and Jonas is why Adam is being so secretive. It shouldn't have been a surprise to Jonas that there is a "parallel world". Why did middle age Jonas tell him about it? Why didn't Claudia tell him about it? This is the only "loophole" that bothers me.

    Finally a german production without having that weird feeling when watching. Characters should be in the foreground and not the actors. Dark 1 + 2 were very cool, excited for third and last season.

    This show unfolds diving deep into what's about to happen in the upcoming episodes and the new season coming, this season shocked me with its characters and story in general, introducing and making many new characters to dive into, this show is truly mysterious and I love it

    Best TV Show of all time ????

    I am amazed that season 2 didn't completely destroy anything from season 1, and it also managed to fill in plot holes (spoiler alert) like how Gretchen was somehow able to get through the cave into a different time period, and why Mikkel/Michael didn't ever travel back to 2019. My favorite show yet.
