Dark is a Netflix original thriller focuses on a small German town shaken by the disappearance of two boys. But when a body finally turns up in the woods, it is the perfectly preserved body of another boy who went missing in the eighties, who's case was never solved. Almost frustratingly slowly, the show unravels the interconnected trauma of three generations of three families forced to reconcile with the hurt they've dealt each other and themselves. This is Stranger Things' sinister German cousin, and if you're anything like us here on the Xeno team, you'll find yourself on the other side of it in three days, reeling and demanding more. The good news is, the second season *just* came out. But a warning—it may be a good idea to grab a notepad and a pen to keep track of who is who and what is what in this fantastic, twisty show.
