TVAD Writers Room: A final verdict for Netflix’s Dark!
We’ve seen a large increase in the number of Netflix originals in recent years. The shows and movies they’ve produced have been extremely varied. While the quality of the shows and movies have also varied, they’ve also produced numerous critically acclaimed series. Their latest sci-fi series, Dark, is a German-produced time travel show. TVAD recently reviewed the first four episodes and we were highly impressed.
“Think of Dark like the frustrating mystery box you can’t unlock but secretly don’t want to. It’s very much a slow-burn process yet so much happens in its stead that it’s remarkable the end-product is so clean-cut.”
Coming Soon: Fox unveils new trailer for The X-Files and Ronald D. Moore is developing a new space-based series!

Ronald D. Moore, known for his work on Starz’s adaptation of Outlander and the reimagined Battlestar Galactica series for Syfy, is developing a new show for Apple TV. Very little is known about the series at this point but it will mark Moore’s return to a space-based project. The series will explore what the world would be like if the global space race had never ended.
