 Top Critics Review on 1899!

  • While the essentials are present, Dark lacks the lightning in a bottle that made it so compelling (at least not yet). And without that, every shortcoming of this subgenre is blatantly obvious.
  • The show succeeds in creating a spooky atmosphere, but at the sacrifice of interesting conversation and character development.
  • Despite 1899’s painfully slow beginning, there are enough plotlines present for us to hope that things quicken up as the mystery surrounding Prometheus becomes more complex.
  • The problem is that they arrive and depart quickly with little to say as some of the mysteries are solved, leaving only the characters’ humanity.
  • We dare you not to keep pressing play thanks to its captivating cast of international characters and their developing personal stories, the eerie production design, and the brilliant cliffhangers.
  • The secrets and mysteries of 1899 might seem a little predictable to fans of Dark.
  • Although [the series] still leaves many mysteries unexplained, it should be far simpler for laypeople to grasp the story than Dark was.

1899 Review: Watch it or Ignore it

An overview of the “1899’s” plot would be like to describe what a glob of paint looks like when it’s millimeters from your face. It is difficult to argue for something in an exhibit without being able to see it as its whole. You can explain the color, the texture, and perhaps even something about the way the light hits it as part of a portrait.

In other words, “1899” is a tale that occurs on the Kerberos, a ship cruising the Atlantic in the final year of the 19th century. I could discuss Maura, the exiled doctor escaping the demons of her past (Emily Beecham). I could argue that the captain of the Kerberos, Eyk (Andreas Pietschmann), and a large number of other passengers, from plush suites to the cargo hold, are all acting in unison.

However, “1899” is organized in a way by its authors Jantje Friese and Baran bo Odar which makes the series more of an experience, making such facts less significant on their own. “1899,” like their earlier program “Dark,” virtually solely deals in grandiose ideals.

More than a name on a list, every person on board the Kerberos is a potential. Watching each new episode flip a new card and see what precise type of drama is waiting on the other side is one of the appeals of the show. A quick glance at “1899” will reveal to anyone observing that all of these motorcyclists are running away from something.

One thing to keep in mind is that “Dark” worked best as a whole. The full value of “1899” is in its story arc, which is thought to span several seasons and still feels unfinished on purpose.

Season 1 is like a prologue in that it sets up the pieces before showing the room, the table, and the board on which those pieces sit. So “1899” has a lot of ideas but not many answers, setting up a situation where success or failure depends on who sets sail. Watch the trailer below:
