    1899 Review (Spolier-Free): Season 1 – A Series Full Of Mind-Bending Mysteries

    Last Updated

    1899 Review – The scifi masterpiece series DARK creators Jantje Friese and Baran Bo Odar are back with another engrossing Netflix thriller. 1899, the most recent and one of the most popular Netflix shows at the present, is a puzzle with full of mysteries right from the start.

    This eight-episode mystery series requires your complete attention.  The plot alternates between flashbacks, hallucinations, strange visual patterns, and jaw-dropping cliffhanger turns, and its large ensemble of characters all speak various languages.

    Any viewers who are not native speakers of German, Spanish, French, Swedish, Polish, or another language should have their reading glasses on hand. 

    I’m sure the above section gave you a good idea of how this series will play out. In order for you to go through the same anxiety, uncertainty, and what the heck moments as me, I’ve also made sure to keep this review spoiler-free. Ready to hear more? Let’s get started with the review.

    1899 REVIEW NETFLIX – season 1

    Maura (Emily Beecham) and Eyk (Andreas Pietschmann) are the show’s ostensible leads; Maura is a doctor searching for her missing brother, who may have been on board the Prometheus, and Eyk is the captain of the migrant ship Kerberos, who is dealing with the tragic loss of his entire family in a house fire.

    As the title suggests, we are in the year 1899 aboard the Kerberos, a steamship travelling from London to New York and carrying a diverse group of migrants seeking a better life. Midway across the Atlantic, they start receiving messages from the Prometheus, another ship from the same ship company that went missing four months ago.

    The captain of the ship Kerberos, Eyk (Andreas Pietschmann), decided to change course to determine if the signal was from the lost ship Prometheus. Unsurprising, It came from Prometheus, which is floating aimlessly in an abandoned state in the middle of the ocean. To find out what happened to that ship, the captain and a few others board the Prometheus, only to find it in absolute chaos, with no passengers – living or dead – to be found, except for one young boy who was trapped inside a cupboard.

    Eyk, who had apparently gone insane, chose to tow the Prometheus back to land for no apparent reason but to not waste the tonnes of steel. haha!  That’s when things start to go crazy.

    As is common in these kinds of series, the characters seems like they don’t have much in common at first, aside from the fact that they’re running away from something — and they’re all hiding an important secret. The first three to four episodes are painfully sluggish, but do not take your eye away as each episode begins with a flashback to a specific individual, giving you some insight into who they are and why they’re aboard the ship.

    Things quickly become bizarre after the fourth episode. It won’t be long until you notice triangles and pyramids popping up everywhere. Like everyone else, I portrayed some of them as heroes, others as villains, and some as useless as I had a sense they would die after a few episodes, but the creators decided to give some what the heck moments throughout the episodes. 

    Unsurprisingly, the eighth episode is one of my favourites as it’s just full with more mysteries and brought more new openings to the story. All I can say is that it’s worth watching just for the final few minutes of the eighth episode.

    It’s difficult to say too much without giving too much away, but I can confirm that I was frequently puzzled as to where the show was headed, which was refreshing and more interesting to watch. In a nutshell,
