Does it take a while to pick-up?  Because, based on this thread, I gave it a go.  The first episode was garbage.

Rotten Tomatoes and IMDB both gave it good ratings too...so I was a bit shocked how slow and boring episode 1 was.

Just STFU and keep your attention to the screen.

In his, or anyone's defense, the show draws you in more and more each episode.  Good show.  By the end of it, easily in my top 5.

First episode was a bit slow. I knew a bit where it was heading so I was drawn in. But that second episode is where it really picks up. Bu the third (the reveal of who is who at the end) I could barely stop watching to head to bed.

You need to watch 12 Monkeys.  It's exlusive to stream on Hulu. 

Or here for free: http://putlockers.la/watch/vkr6W9Ad-12-monkeys-season-1/episode-1.html  But watch it on a big screen.

Took me about 3 episodes to start to figure out who everyone was and then it gets a lot easier.

I watched with german dubbing, which was surprisingly good.  Hats off to anyone who can follow while reading subtitles (although, that may have made it easier to recognize names and get to know the characters).

I can’t do shows without the native language. The inflections and music don’t line up.

DARK was excellent. I have questions. But it was excellent. Time travel and wormholes hurt my head.

I stopped reading this thread here...because the last sentence made me put Dark in my queue and I don't want to see what happens.

 

I am in the middle of season 2 of Travelers and it is pretty good. I am also in the middle of season 6 of Star Trek: Voyager and they have more "time travel" episodes than any other Star Trek series, so it is interesting.

Timeless on regular TV is really good right now, on season 2, ESPECIALLY if you like history.

I didn't think it was that noticeable a lot of the time.  I thought it was very well dubbed, but then I don't think I've ever seen a dubbed film that wasn't kung fu or godzilla.

Just reporting in for the good of the order, here.

Gut - 12 Monkeys is nowhere close to Dark.

I only just watched the trailer after seeing this thread. Is the whole thing in German I take it?

Subtitles? No English version?

The show is in German. Watch with English subtitles

If you go with the English overdub version, you're doing it wrong.

Bah, probably moves this down my list of things to watch.

I've watched it twice with English overdub.  I thought it was just fine, however, the subtitles don't always match.  I haven't watched the German version, so I can't compare.  But to me, the English overdub was sufficient.

English overdub just doesn't feel genuine. German is an odd language and I feel you lose emotion when you watch with the shitty overdub. I tried the first episode with it, lasted 10 min. 

I guess I'm in the minority, but I don't mind subtitles, even with shows/movies in English. I always have, but even more so now. My gf isn't a native English speaker, so we watch subtitles with everything. 

Money Heist is next in my queue, in Spanish, set in Madrid. I've heard good things.

I agree with you... El Chapo and Narcos I could not do the overdub.  Had to be español.  Perhaps the 3rd time I watch Dark, I'll do the German.

I watch Dark in German with no subtitles. I just taught myself German overnight.
