New German series on Netflix

I thought I would just mention there is a new series on Netflix (at least in the US) named Dark. You can switch the language to English - or leave it in German.

December 1, 2017



The Guardian review calls it “a classy, knotty time-travelling whodunnit”. Here is the link to the review. Personally, I am intrigued.


I'm watching it right now, it's so good! And I'm glad they're coming out with a season 2 next year.

I still have to watch it with the English subtitles, since my German is not quite fluent yet, lol. But already I hear a lot of words I can recognize, which is really encouraging!


Also, here's a free extension that adds bilingual subs, pop-up dictionary, and improved playback control: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/lln-language-learning-wit/hoombieeljmmljlkjmnheibnpciblicm


I have already seen so many in german :) Almost everything I click on has german audio and subtitles. Not sure if it is the same for US.

Ja, nicht das Gleiche.


That is great news, thank you! I've been looking for a German TV series to watch on Netflix for so long now! (Der Tatortreiniger didn't really work for me.)

Have you caught the new Netflix original series Godless? It is dubbed in German and really well done. You can put English subtitles on and audio in German. I watched the entire series in German audio and it didn't seem like a dubbed movie. The series gets better as it goes along. I was impressed.

Another mini-series on Netflix that was good and you can watch with German audio and English subtitles is Alias Grace. It was very good with a good story and surprise ending. The German dubbing was very easy to listen to and after awhile I found that I wasn't even reading the English subtitles.


Were you watching on Netflix or on on the ARD site? I've watched an episode there, and it was great with the German subtitles turned on.



Tatortreineger is genius. Better than most English-speaking shows I've seen. I highly rate it and recommend it to anyone who hasn't see it yet. Those with a European background might appreciate the humour more ;-)


There's a movie called Land Of Mine, it's a great movie too!


I've only watched a few episodes. I thought the first episode to be dull. The second one improved. The third got me hooked.

Love the photography. But the editing seems sort of strange. For example, one moment there is a heavy downpour, but a few seconds there wasn't any rain. Then after that scene - same time of day - no sign of the downpour.

But these editing problems seemed to have disappeared in the third episode.


That's awesome, thank you!!!


An added language bonus to this series, there is some DGS (German Sign Language).


Seit ich Deutschland 83 geschaut habe, habe ich gesucht, nach einer Serie, die auf Deutsch ist. Danke für die Empfehlung!
