My goodness, what a week makes.

I am sincerely convinced that the COVID-19 will be dominating the news for the very near future, and we are not sure what’s in store in the days ahead. We are genuinely in unchartered territory.

As an introvert with 39 years of experience, I can safely say that I’ve been preparing for this moment all of my life. However, it’s not all gloom and doom. We’re going to try our best during these next few weeks to offer up a different recommendation each day of something that you can watch to pass the time.

Though we do recommend that you take this time to get to know your loved ones more, we know that you’ll still be looking for things to do after say, like three days in quarantine.

So we’ll use our ecliptic taste in storytelling for you to maybe try something new.

Maybe we’ll even take a day to blog about something that we’re just experiencing. Either way, life is what you make of it.

You can be scared out of your mind, or you can use what is presented and experience the creative minds in this world. We’re choosing this as a chance to enjoy the arts.

First up, let’s talk about a show that sounds crazy if you’re learning about it now. Dark, which can be featured on Netflix, is a German-language series (though you can enjoy it in bad English dubbed) is about when two children go missing in a small German town, its sinful past is exposed along with the double lives and fractured relationships that exist among four families as they search for the kids.

It’s all relative when it comes to the plotline. A series that doesn’t take its audience as a bunch of idiots, Dark is like a puzzle for someone who is just learning how to use their fingers.

It’s imagery – don’t close your eyes or you’ll be left in the Dark – to the Hitchcockian treatment of children will leave you feeling uneasy and curious. Giving a show like this takes time. And it’s an investment that will only compound in value the more time you put into it.

The complicated relationship between the philosophical profanities that is put on the practical Physics. Dark is a mystery. Sensational science fiction. It’s a rural love sonnet.

Stories that really can’t be placed into one category is a testament to its creators

It’s a show that will unite the posterior parietal cortex and the occipital lobe. (Parts of the brain that function for the understanding of the arts and the sciences).

It’s not an easy series to understand, trust me. A second viewing of the first two seasons is highly recommended because I was amazed at how much that I didn’t pick up the first time that I watched it. But that’s OK with me.

Sometimes, I need a show like Dark to challenge my way of thinking and how much I enjoy entertainment.
