1899 (2022): The Next Big Web Series On Netflix

The multilingual mystery box 1899, from the authors of Dark, follows an excessive number of individuals on a journey to America. The series establishes early on that not everything may be as it seems in the opening narration by Maura Franklin, who talks about the human brain’s many abilities before it is revealed that she is a patient in a mental institution. Then all of a sudden, she finds herself on the steamer Kerberos with no memory of how she got there, scars on her wrists, and a cryptic note in her luggage.

THE PLOT

1899. A migratory steamer departs the old continent by sailing west. The passengers, who came from various European countries, were united by their hopes for the twenty-first century and their plans for the future. But when they come across another migrant ship drifting on the open sea, their trip takes an unexpected turn. They will discover something on board that will make their journey to the promised land a terrifying nightmare.

THE GOOD/THE BAD

Obviously, some stories are more memorable than others. Additionally, you choose your favourites fairly early on in the season. As the heroine Emily Beecham wanders through riddles and physically impossible events scene after scene, she serves as the viewer’s eyes on this warped vessel. However, when the writers keep increasing the tension, it does start to annoy after a time. The atmosphere becomes tight as the music becomes eerier, darker, and darker. However, the reward is gradual and the revelations are subtle.

To be honest, the actors don’t really stand out. No particular performance comes to mind that justifies a stand-alone notice. But overall, the performers did a good job of making the audience feel claustrophobic. Although a collective effort, there is room for growth in the second season. Because it keeps its cards close to its chest, 1899 succeeds. The surprises and twists are not as shocking as in Lost and Inception since audiences are more accustomed to this type. Still, it catches you off surprise. In an age of internet detectives, 1899 manages to be novel. Its greatest achievement is that.

MY THOUGHTS

1899 is a superb television series that makes a great contribution to the mystery subgenre. It combines the essential elements that made Dark such a sombre film with a hodgepodge of ideas. You shouldn’t miss this show, and after you’ve seen it through to the end, you’ll be eager for season 2!
