Started watching this a few days ago, really cool time travel mystery show. It's German, and translated for you on Netflix. Highly recommend if you're into scifi, 80s, German, etc. Very similar to Stranger Things, but the German version.

I never even heard of it till the other day, but it's definitely up there at the top of the list of best shows out right now.

We watched season 1 when it first came out, it was real good. Tough because you can't be doing anything else while watching, because subtitles. It gave my fiance' a chance to brush up on her German. She said the subtitles were off a lot.

Been putting off getting back into season 2, but we'll get there eventually.

There are no subtitles in the one im watching, you can stream it right from netflix in English.

They do occasionally translate a sign or something like that during episodes.

Ya but the show wasnt shot in English....I hate dubbed over shows.

All foreign netflix shows have an english soundtrack...from what Ive seen at least...and they're typically not very good.

Yeah sub>dub for the most part...for anime I rather have a dub, because the mouthing never matches anyways. But for live action, dub bugs the ever living shit out of me...subs is the only way to go

Finished season 2 last night. Man this show is so good and yet such a mind fuck. Trying to keep up with all the timelines is getting hard. However I think season 3 is the last so hopefully most things will get answered.

Also this show puts GOT to shame with the amount of unknowing incest lol

Wife and I REALLY regretted not watching season 1 over again. There were quite a few things we were lost and confused over that I think would've been cleared up with just watching it over. We are just so hesitant to watch things with subtitles because all of our focus is on the TV.

FINALLY started this over b/c Turk Turk started watching it. I dont know why I stopped in the first place. I'm on episode 6 and the writing and acting is just so brilliant.

Also, I'm starting to find that I like foreign shows WAY more than most American shows....subtitles and all.

Mook Mook Thanks for bumping this! I totally didn't even realize they came out with a new season like a month ago, now i have something to watch for a few nights.

First two seasons were great, very mind-trippy.

We loved this show for the first season, the second season was cool, but we kind of lost track of everything because we didn’t start over so we’re kind of lost, and just have avoided the new season(s). The subtitles are just too exhausting

This show has/had so much going on, it's almost a must
I actually started the first episode of the newest season and stopped because I was confused on all the happenings.

so who watches subtitles vs dubbed voices?I can’t handle dubbed over shows

I actually watch with dub. To me its easier to follow because I can pay attention to whats happening on screen instead of reading. Obviously the lips are off but I get over it.
