    I watched Dark over break and wow, what a fantastic show. I loved it. I went in thinking it would be a crime thriller about missing kids but it had a significant twist early on that surprised me and shot out my expectations in a good way. It's been awhile since I've seen a show that challenges the viewer to think like this. Dark, great directing, cinematography, music, acting, great drama and great suspense. I'm already thinking about when I watch it again.

    It's getting a lot of comparisons to Stranger Things (missing kids, 80s flashbacks), but I think I like it better. Dark is what Stranger Things would be after years of hard living.

    Either way, Dan really did die in the story, so I'm not really sure how they are explaining John Goodman's return. I'm fine with making believe the final season never existed.
    I think that's pretty much what they will do. The last season was all a dream or something like that. I've read before that the show was supposed to end one season sooner but the studio insisted on going for one more so Rosanne decided to just go wild and crazy for the last season.

    I'm looking forward to the new season but I'm curious if they'll address the 4th kid Rosanne had in season 8. Haven't read anything about him. I remember they named him Jerry Garcia Conner.
    Yeah, I heard that too. I also remember hearing that they needed a way to make sure Goodman wasn't going to be on the show because he was off shooting The Big Lebowski.

    I thought it was great, too. Challenging at times because I had a hard time matching up the characters at various ages, but altogether very well done.

    I did too. I had the wiki character guide on my phone that I'd look at when I didn't remember or didn't know their younger selves or who they were related to. I think my one negative of the show would be that it introduced too many characters at once.

    I think this was compounded by the fact that none of the actors were familiar to me, something to latch onto, plus shifting between watching and reading subtitles, although subs were far better than overdubs.

    Yeah, I think so too.

    And I don't know if there's a setting for this, but each new episode would revert back to English dubbing, so I had to keep switching it back to German.

    SOA spinoff 'Mayans MC'

    So apparently they are going forward with this sometime this summer or fall. I enjoyed the original SOA series but would've much rather Sutter went with a prequel series that focused on the first 9. I'll check this out when it airs but I don't know if I'll like it or not.
    Hearts are tough, she said, most times hearts don't break, and I'm sure that's right . . . but what about then? What about who we were then? What about hearts in Atlantis?

    I love the John Wick franchise, so I'm interested in this one. I think there's a lot they can do. Keanu Reeves is a big part of what makes the John Wick franchise so good, so they need to do a good job of casting the main character.

    Seriously. It's insane at the frequency at which they add quality content.
