Dark Netflix Original Show

What to Watch: Dark: Season One (A Netflix Original)

Arguably, Netflix originals are some of the best content to watch. For me, not having the same stories retold over and over with different actors like the Hollywood reboot machine likes to churn out is a refreshing breeze.DARK Netflix original - The Millennial Exclusive
