‘Dark’: Here Are 8 Easter Eggs You Might Have Missed Amidst All Those Time Travel Shenanigans

[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from “Dark” Season 2.]

Netflix’s sci-fi series “Dark” requires intense concentration to watch, and not just because viewers have to put down their phones to read the subtitles. Created by Baran bo Odar and Jantje Friese, the German-language series packs in a dense story about the small town of Winden, whose residents harbor secrets spanning generations, including the abduction and murder of young boys. On top of that, frequent time travel makes it difficult to keep storylines, genealogy, and even concepts of spacetime straight.

Therefore, viewers could be forgiven for missing smaller details amidst all of this insanity. But just as the creators are fond of meticulous plotting, so too are they about including hidden meanings and jokes throughout the series. And yes, “Dark” is funny, even as everyone’s lives are at stake. Really, what’s funnier than finding out that your daughter is also your mother?!

‘Chasing the Moon’: Watch Civil Rights Protest at 1969 Moon Launch in Rare Clip — Exclusive
Robert Stone’s upcoming three-part documentary series on PBS, “Chasing the Moon”, celebrates the 50th anniversary of the moon landing and reimagines the Space Age as a mix of scientific innovation, political maneuvering, media spectacle, and personal drama. Oscar and Emmy-nominated filmmaker Stone aims to rethink the race to the moon for a new generation, invalidating much of the accepted legend surrounding the effort.

With a treasure trove of previously overlooked and lost archival material – much of which has never before been seen by the public – the film features a diverse cast of characters who played key roles in these historic events, including astronauts Buzz Aldrin, Frank Borman and Bill Anders; Sergei Khrushchev, son of the former Soviet premier and a leading Soviet rocket engineer; Poppy Northcutt, a 25-year old “mathematics whiz” who gained global attention as the first woman to serve in the all-male Nasa Mission Control; and Ed Dwight,

‘Game of ‘Thrones’ Cast Reunite to Watch Season 1 Set Footage, and They Are Mortified — Watch

‘Game of ‘Thrones’ Cast Reunite to Watch Season 1 Set Footage, and They Are Mortified — Watch
Game of Thrones” came to an end with one of the most polarizing final seasons in television history, but if there’s one way to start winning fans back it’s with this epic reunion video. The full cast reunion, hosted by Conan O’Brien, will be included on the “Game of Thrones: The Complete Collection” Blu-ray set. The advance clip HBO debuted finds cast members Maisie Williams, Sophie Turner, Kit Harington, and Isaac Hempstead Wright reacting to Season 1 set footage. To say they are mortified by what they see would be an understatement.

Williams started production on “Game of Thrones” when she was just 12 years old, so watching her react to her baby-faced self is quite memorable. Nothing tops the casts’ reaction to young Harington, who is seen in his early 20s talking about how excited he is to take on the role of Jon Snow. Harington himself lets

Netflix’s ‘The Office’ Loss Proves Original Content Is Key For Streamers

Netflix’s ‘The Office’ Loss Proves Original Content Is Key For Streamers
R.I.P. “The Office” on Netflix. The acclaimed sitcom will be leaving the streaming platform after 2020, and the Dunder Mifflin squad will find a new home on NBCUniversal’s unnamed streaming platform when it launches in 2021.

The move, which NBCUniversal announced Tuesday, is sure to disappoint Netflix subscribers—the show is one of Netflix’s most watched series—but is hardly a surprising one. As entertainment businesses gear up to release their own streaming services, many legacy films and television shows are being scooped up by their producers, who will release them exclusively on their own platforms. The only way streaming services can guarantee to have content in perpetuity is to produce it themselves.

The case of “The Office” is particularly indicative of the issue. Although the series finale aired six years ago, “The Office” is still an incredibly popular and influential show and the network with rights to the show reaps the benefits.

Politics Is Entertainment and NBC’s Democratic Debates Will Be a Worthy Spectacle

American politics has become an entertainment spectacle, and Episode One of the 2020 election season will air in a few hours.

NBC will host the first Democratic primary debates, split over Wednesday and Thursday evening at 9 p.m. Et/6 p.m. Pt, and millions of viewers are expected to tune in to learn about the 20 candidates who will be taking the stage. The unprecedented number of Democratic presidential hopefuls required the first debate to be split into two nights; 10 candidates will take the stage tonight, with another 10 following tomorrow. Of course, this is hardly a bad thing for the network: Two debates over two nights means twice the commercials, after all.

Although it may be difficult to determine the precise viewership numbers for the two-part Democratic debates, since audiences will be tuning in on a wide variety of mediums, it’s certain to draw a massive audience. The debates will air on NBC and MSNBC,

Discovery Faces Backlash From Unscripted Producers After Shift in Series Payment Process

Discovery Inc. is facing a backlash from the unscripted production community following a shift in the cable giant’s protocol for paying for programming.

During the past year, Discovery has implemented a new system that calls for the company to pay producers for shows after all episodes and related material for a given season have been delivered to the network. Previously, the payment schedule for episodes was subject to negotiation and typically spread out across the timetable of production after key milestones were met.

The change requires producers to have enough funds on hand to cover the production costs for
