Netflix, 3:00 a.m. ET

 
SERIES PREMIERE: This 10-part German series is produced, imported and presented today by Netflix, as part of its quest, in TV entertainment terms, of literal world domination. It’s a moody mystery genre thriller – think The Returned in global TV terms, or Twin Peaks: The Return closer to home – and is set in two distinct time periods: the very near future (2019) and the fairly distant past (1986), with a third time frame (1953) thrown in for good measure. And in a remote German village where the nearby woods are the stuff of classic fairy tales, those two time periods intersect, like a Venn diagram of time-traveling weirdness. Wilkommen, bienvenue, welcome… For a full review, see David Hinckley’s All Along the Watchtower.
