Netflix viewers reckon under appreciated series is actually the 'best ever' made

Netflix viewers reckon under appreciated series is actually the 'best ever' made

The German sci-fi thriller has set tongues wagging

2024 is finally upon us, and that only means one thing - a multitude of brand new binge-worthy boxsets and unmissable movies have started landing on Netflix.

Harlen Coben's latest spine-tingling thriller adaptation Fool Me Once starring Michelle Keegan has already set tongues wagging since dropping on New Years Day.

And viewers of Money Heist's newly-released spin-off Berlin have had their minds blown by its tantalising plot line.

Sci-fi thriller Rebel Moon - also known as the most expensive film of 2023 - has also landed on the streaming service after months of anticipation, and 'hidden gem' Black Sails is already said to be giving Game of Thrones a run for its money.

But there's another - and apparently 'under-rated' - brand new series that has seemingly got Netflix users all over the world talking.

In fact, many audience members have been left enraged that this latest addition to the streaming service's catalogue isn't getting the appreciation it deserves.

A German thriller that has dropped on Netflix has set tongues wagging.

German sci-fi fiction thriller Dark was first brought to viewers by co-creators Baran bo Odor and Jantje Friese back in 2017, with it continuing to run for three series up until 2020.

Despite debuting over six years ago, the series has only now been granted the recognition it deserves from Netflix users.

The plotline of this nerve-shattering 26-parter follows residents living in the fictional town of Winden, Germany, who are attempting to uncover the truth behind a child's shocking disappearance.

The connections between four estranged families are investigated in connection with the crime, before a stomach-churning time-travel conspiracy spanning across several generations begins to emerge.

Dark is a sci-fi thriller.

As such, this riveting hit delves head-first into the existential implications of time, as well as its affect on human nature.

This thriller stars high-profile German actors including Louis Hofmann - who has recently hit headlines for his stellar performance in Netflix's historical fiction All The Light We Cannot See - as well as Lisa Vicari, Gina Stiebitz and Oliver Masucci.

Dark has been given an almost-perfect score of 95 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, and a multitude of Netflix viewers have this week taken to social media to express their shock at the under-appreciated series.

"Reminder that if you haven’t, you should definitely watch Dark on netflix!!" one audience member tweeted.

The German thriller has received high praise from viewers.

A second added: "People don’t talk about Netflix’s DARK enough"

Sharing a snap of the cast, another wrote: "Remember these faces? One of the best series ever in history of netflix. #dark".

"Sorry but Dark is on another level than not just Netflix shows but almost any other show in history," a fourth went on.

Another gushed: "Dark [on] Netflix is one of the best series Netflix has ever produced. Ever"
