Set in parallel worlds where different versions of its characters shift through time, the final series of Netflix’s German drama is twisty – and totally brilliant
Halfway through the third and final season of Dark, it becomes – to all but the most dedicated student of the show – impossible to follow. It’s simply not feasible for the average viewer to keep up with two parallel worlds, each of which features multiple versions of the many characters, travelling through time. By any normal measure, it’s a messy folly.
It is, however, where the German sci-fi series really gets going. It passes through a dramatic wormhole, hits the storyline singularity and floats frictionlessly in space, shifting at a million miles per hour. It’s quite a ride.
