I'm a bit surprised this series has not been mentioned. I think it's great -- kind of Stranger Things meets Twin Peaks meets Back to the Future. This is one of the best shows I have watched in a while. The biggest problem is that the default setting for Netflix is for the dubbed version, which sucks. English speakers need to change to German and turn on English subtitles.

I absolutely love this show and have already watched it twice. I HIGHLY recommend it to anyone who likes Stranger Things and Counterpart (or at least is intrigued by the apparent concept of Counterpart). There's even a touch of the OA about it for those that watched that series. Its a real mind bender. I didn't think the English dubbing was all that bad but I didn't try the German with subtitles version as my wife doesn't want to "read" when she watches. Before you reach the halfway point, you'll wish you had taken notes on all the characters and who is connected to whom, etc.

Watching any show with a dub when subtitles are available is a sin.

My brother said that about Dark. Started with dubbed, then switched to subtitles and it was 10x better.

Thought there was a thread dedicated to this show and I feel compelled to bring it to the fore. We are through 6 eps of the 8 episode 2nd season that just dropped last Friday, the 21st. This show is mind boggling and absolutely awesome. I cannot speak highly enough about it. I think it is my favorite show of the last several years now. How the writers have kept things straight through all the complexity of the plotlines is beyond me. But it is riveting! Fantastic performances all over the cast and the casting choices to show the same characters at different ages are right on the money. How this show isn't garnering more attention is impossible for me to fathom!

Don't give up! I get it; my wife doesn't want to "read" to watch a tv show. My daughter and I would prefer the German version with subtitles. If you MUST, watch the English dubbed version and then watch it with the subtitles the 2nd time. Being able to run through seasons 1 and 2 straight through will definitely inspire/require a 2nd watch. At least! By the time you get halfway through S1, you'll wish you'd been taking notes.

Finished Ep 1. Very much a Stephen King/Stranger Things vibe with maybe some IT mixed in. I mean IT is King Iím just thinking itís more of a direct line to it possibly with this 33 yrs stuff.

You will learn who the Stranger is (among several other things!) in Ep 4. You will also see why, if you don't already, I wished I had been taking notes by then!
