Peter Sorrell (English Department) gave a presentation, “‘I started to watch this show yesterday and...’: Down the Reddit Rabbithole with Dark,’ in which he discussed the popular reception of the German-language Netflix show Dark.

The English-language r/Dark community is an especially active one, given the show’s relatively low profile among viewers in the United States, so an examination of what gets said there and how it gets said should prove fruitful for establishing the tenacity of popular theories of narrative as both teleological and curative.
