Watched the first 8 episodes today. Very, very good, similar to a lot of European crime drama in the isolated setting and intertwining lives of the people. Reminds me of Stranger Things but that wears off after about 5 episodes. The show has a bit more to get your head around than I had anticipated but it's really interesting and they help you to connect the dots through the use of photographs.

Yeah, my wife and i were watching this because she had heard about it and it just felt like a Stranger Things rip off. I mean, ridiculous. Even 80s music and whatnot. So I quit after 4 or 5 episodes. It was really well done and all, I just lost interest.
I got that vibe at first, but it has worn off by the 4th episode. It has stuff in common in terms of trying to tap into nostalgia and the 80s, but the plot of dark becomes far more complicated as it goes on.

Yeah I like all the intricacies and twists that are set up and hinted at for episodes beforehand. This show is great so far, though it has no fun factor to break away from the constant bleakness (which is a plus for me).
Also, this show isn't all that similar to Stranger Things at all IMO.
