Re: What TV programmes have you been watching lately?

Just finished Dark; still pissed off at that ending. Still got to watch season 3. Is it not worth watching then? Still worth the watch, mate. A lot of people loved the ending so make of it what you will, seems like a completely subjective one. Just personally wasn't a fan of it. Good series overall
