You are twisting my words. I never said the first scene was "amazing", i said that it captures you right away.

From the start, the show doesn't shy away from its tone and atmosphere.

It's bleak, depressive and unlike most series out there, so it stands out.

Obviously if you know what the main draw of the show is, then you will be captivated from the start.

But keep in mind that 99% of people who go in blind think this show is a crime drama

Yeah well I turned it off after the first scene. Didn't seem like a show I would like. Mind you, I had no idea what the show was about.

And then I gave it another try a few months later.

Both Dark and Chernobyl have a similar opening scene, where a character commits suicide. In fact, in Chernobyl it's the main character who does it

And I thought both times it was a great way to start the show, I really wanted to know why they were doing that

Your reaction to that scene is probably because you weren't in the right mindset for such a scene or maybe you personally can't stand anything like that
