Oh man, this is such a great show. I watched the first two seasons early in the beginning of Covid land. I never watched the first two when they were released - will this be released in full, or one episode at a time?
Imma have to watch that season 2 recap to remember what happened and it's only been a couple of months. Can't imagine trying to remember all the intricacies if I last saw it a year ago.
also one of the most compelling and consistent time travel stories I've ever seen
*sits on couch, head bowed*
Outside of Lost, I’ve never worked that hard on a tv show before
I actually wish that I attacked this show like I used to consume Lost (and all the side content)
Weirdly the denser the plot got, the more passive I became with the story
Season 3 I tried podcasts, tried reddit
at some point I just realized I was either going to rewatch s1&2 and have a Charlie Kelly conspiracy board or I was just going to let it wash over me
I opted for the latter
Still enjoyed the heck out of it and agree it’s the best time travel story told
It's hard for me to isolate season 1 from the rest of the series since I've watched it in its entirety. I do remember having a thought of "well that was a whole lot of nothing" in regards to a conclusion, but not even close to feeling it's a dumb show or that there's wasn't some universe building with constructive plot elements. I loved the story being told about the relationships and character motives.Finished S1. What a dumb show. Cool concept. Good writing. Excellent acting. But
How you gonna have a whole season one happen and explain nothing and the finale ends with nothing changing whatsoever. So frustrating to watch episode after episode where nothing actually happens.
“hey you watched all 10 episodes? Congratulations. Nothing mattered at all. Nobody won. Nothing is saved. Hope you enjoyed your waste of time.”
just awful. By the end I wouldn’t have cared if everyone died and the whole town got wiped off the map just so something actually happened. I don’t think I‘ve got the time for season 2. Baseball and basketball are back and I don’t have endless time to waste on this nonsense.
Even “time is a flat circle” S1 of True Detective had the decency to actually have some

I also had the luxury of not expecting much from a German Netflix show and being pleasantly surprised before it picked up some hype. If you didn't like season 1, then I wouldn't bother with the rest of the series. For me, this is a show I want to watch from beginning to end once more.
s3 definitely resolves the storyFinished S2. Starting S3. The first episode is called déjà vu. And I’m experiencing it. I’m having flashbacks to LOST. It really feels like it’s not sure where it’s going. I hope im wrong. But it just feels like how can we re-twistify what’s already been twisted in an even twistier way. And the series becomes about the twist than working toward a coherent conclusion.
I haven’t had this much angst over a series in a long time. I want badly to like it but the series makes it really really hard to.
