    If you have netflix and you like stories that are complex and difficult and challenging AND in german.

    Watch Dark.

    Unbelievably good.

    I have Netflix and I like all that, but I don’t speak German. Are there English subtitles? I am fine with subtitled foreign films.

    Couldn't bring yourself to say "Ja"?

    I may try this one. I'm currently watching Justified on Prime.

    Dark is great, although I haven't watched S2 yet. I still need to skim back through S1 to refresh my recollection of the somewhat complicated plot. Fair warning -- it is not a show that you can passively watch in the background and still follow.

    ¡es verdad!

    we freeze it pretty often to verify who just spoke and who is in the room. I'm mad at myself for not naming one of my kids Higgs Boson... Higgs is an awesome name.

    Absolutely. Assuming that we have similar tastes in shows, try "The Rook" on Starz. It starts slowly but kicks into a higher gear at episode 4. It's another cool show that I sense no one is watching. It got a bunch of bad reviews--people complained that it's too slow and brooding. But I like slow and brooding--ala "Dark."

    I've been recommended Dark by a co-worker a few times. When I get my wits about me again I'll give it a go. I've been having cognitive issues lately so reading has been on the back burner.

    In the meantime the new Mindhunter season just hit.

    I've seen both season, read much details on the internet, studied the family tree, have listened to podcasts and still am confused. It's so AWESOME !! Planning a rewatch.
