1899 The New NETFLIX show by the creators of the German series DARK

They’ve been teasing this for years and it’s finally arriving next month, November 17! A dark mysterious at sea Bermuda Triangle international supernatural SciFi thriller. Miguel Bernardeau formerly Guzman of Elite is in this as well as one of the Jonases of Dark. It looks fabulous and chilling!

The first episode was FANTASTIC! The sense of mood and period are excellent with most of the episode acting as an introduction of the characters, hinting at their darker and complex backgrounds. Upper class Miguel gets flirty with a lower class guy uttering the line, “You got my attention,” so seductive. There’s a Making of 1899 mini documentary as well, I only watch the first minutes and it gave away something big so DO NOT WATCH IT until you’ve finished the series!

The show is shot in a completely new technology, which basically puts the concept of cinematography on end. The imagery inside and out is impressive, super real, but oddly synthetic at the same time, like the best possible gaming console system yet to exist. The sets and costumes are impeccably done, much of it very rich and luxurious. I did watch it in English dub, but upon reflection I wish I would have done the actual language setting, which I think adds another level of tension to the whole show with so many characters not being able to understand each other. The dub setting was already switched on when I started and I was in a few episodes before I thought about it.

The story is very fractured and like the characters you’ll have no idea what’s going on, with mystery building upon mystery. It’s not as hard to follow as Dark, there’s no conceptual conundrums to work out, but the bigger picture is only slowly revealed, but still is not completely explained until the last scenes. Much of it is like individual character studies with reveals of their backstory and unlocking of more mysteries. It moves from horror, to mystery, to SciFi as the story moves along, but there is no time travel element at all. The show I thought of the most, especially towards the end is the OA, I would say if you liked that show, you’ll like this one as well.

I’m enjoying it so far. I’ve finished episode 1 and there’s a right amount of drama, mystery, terror, and what the fuckery that’s nicely balanced. Also, a bit of homoeroticism with the shirtless boiler workers and the fancy man giving scar guy the cigarette while stroking his scar.

Watched the first episode so far and I love the set up and the constant feeling of dread. My wild guess is that it's some sort of deranged fantasy of the female lead trying to cope with the loss of her brother, creating a fantasy scenario where she rescues him. I am probably completely wrong, but to me it's fun to guess.

R23 Watch the “Making of” documentary after you’ve watched the last episode. It’s completely this new technology where they aren’t using green screen, but projecting much of the exterior and some of the interiors on specialized huge screens and the actors are seeing and immersed in the experience that we are seeing on the screen at the same time. Some Disney + show has used it and this series, and they had to build a huge setup in a Germany studio, the same one where they filmed Metropolis, to do it.

I watched the first episode up until the doctor character helped the pregnant women and then gave up in disgust.

An amniotic cord doesn’t cause pain for the mother and turning a breech baby might allow for some relief, but it certainly wouldn’t eliminate the pain of childbirth. And how could everything be all better before the (two months premature) baby is even delivered? I have a suspicion that the turning maneuver is done with one hand IN the woman, but I’m not sure and I can understand glossing that over.

Finally, I’m guessing that In 1899 a brain doctor who trained but was never allowed to practice would know less about delivering a baby than half the women in steerage. Those women would not have been delivering their own babies at hospitals or with doctors. Even if there was no midwife among them, a few would know at least a little about it.

But, based on this thread, maybe I’ll give it another shot.

R25 That video didn’t look like it, but it made me think of the movie The Nasty Girl, which ironically was German also, and how the actor’s would perform in front of huge projections to set the mood and setting, but it was done as a surreal element more than as a believable seamless thing. This first image captures it best from what I could find on the internet.it’s like a very early form of this.

Someone said this show is Titanic meets Black Mirror. I've only seen one episode, but as someone that enjoys reading about the famed old ships this one is too large for the era. It looks absolutely gigantic and the interiors alone would make it almost the size of a 90s cruise ship. Don't even get me started on a double story dinning room like they had in 1899 when such designs would likely not have come into fashion until another 15-20 years at best.

The show is far too dark.

But, DL has wonderful taste so I'll keep watching. But, the ships dimensions are all over the place.

by Anonymousreply 34November 20, 2022 2:57 PM

There is a reason that historic details are off like the baby issue or size of the boat. And any design person, which we usually are inundated with on threads, would recognize that the styles of clothing and interiors are a pastiche and not accurate to the period of 1899. Don’t get hung up on or toss this out based on its fidelity to the historic period, it is actually a clue to the bigger mystery. Again the show I think this has the most common with is the OA.

by Anonymousreply 35November 20, 2022 3:38 PM

Oh no r35, OA didn't even get to finish and was a frustrating mess. I'm now on episode 3 and it feels like a number of run of the mill Netflix mystery shows that are odd just to be odd. Everyone running from something in their past and a parent grieving over a dead child is so so played out. Every Netflix mystery seems to have these themes.

I'll carry on, and stop sounding negative, only because I trust in DL, but this is a slog. Even a handjob couldn't save it yet.

Can the bearded Ocean Line worker with the busted face and scares please fall into the sea? I'd annoying to see him when we have loads of attractive men to choose from on screen.

SPOILER QUESTION:

Are the third class folks passengers or prisoners?

Ships didn't lock people into steerage, they actually wanted them out on decks as much as possible to air out the funk and reduce sickness.

3rd class passengers were the bread and butter of ocean liners, like coach seats in airplanes. An ocean liner that locked the 3rd class up during the entire journey would lose their customers as word spread. So must be something else going on here.

Each episode shows the backstory of one of the cast members, but some intertwine so, some get more backstory than the others. Not all the main cast gets their backstory told in season one, I assume the 2nd season will do that.

In that way it reminds me more of Lost and the flashbacks.

A bit spoilery. In the early episodes I thought it was like the TV mini series Maniac dealing with patients' trauma creating some sort of simulated "safe space" to help them deal with their trauma and something goes terribly wrong, and I was pleasantly surprised by the finale that I was apparently completely wrong.

by Anonymousreply 43November 20, 2022 4:03 PM

Of course, the low class was forbidden to have access to the upper decks and mingle with the first class passengers. Certain areas, like the dining hall, were strictly forbidden for the low class passengers.

Locking them in was probably a creative decision from the show to emphasize the separation of lower and upper class on the ship.

[quote] A commentator described conditions in steerage aboard the SS Kaiser Wilhelm II in 1906:

[quote] 900 steerage passengers [are] crowded into the hold of ... the Kaiser Wilhelm II, of the North German Lloyd line[. They] are positively packed like cattle, making a walk on deck when the weather is good, absolutely impossible, while to breathe clean air below in rough weather, when the hatches are down is an equal impossibility. The stenches become unbearable... [and the] division between the sexes is not carefully looked after, and the young women who are quartered among the married passengers have neither the privacy to which they are entitled nor are they much more protected than if they were living promiscuously. The food, which is miserable, is dealt out of huge kettles into the dinner pails provided by the steamship company.[4]

I think there are decks that were accessible to the lower classes, just not the main deck and the where the first class would be. Also, I thought the door from steerage was only locked after the young girl died because they hadn’t come up with a way to tell the family. In fact hadn’t she wandered out onto the main deck when killed?

I did think the Japanese Geisha’s secret was going to be she was really a boy and not a girl.

Make sure you watch it in English (original) and English Subtitles.

Netflix has it where it goes straight to Dubbed. And since the characters speak different languages the dubbing is weird. Worse still, it stops large parts of the show from making any kind of sense.

Makes a huge difference when it’s not dubbed.

I loved it. And the ending was awesome. If you liked Severance you should like 1899. Great Sci Fi.

r24, I worked in one of those stages here in L.A. (Star Wars universe uses it all the time), and it's pretty incredible in its realism, and the ability to change the panorama instantly.

I just started the series, and the music is a bit annoying (a lot of foreign series are guilty for this)- atmospheric moody music with a crescendo that builds up to nothing. It's obvious from the pilot that she's from the future or is in a construct- there is a brief stuttering sonic sound of a skipped playback (that's the best that I can describe it)- like the intro for "Black Mirror". it happens at least twice.

MY THEORY When Maura wakes up, Elliott and Daniel are the only ones not in pods. IMO, Daniel and Elliott are not alive but their consciousness uploaded into the system. Maura was trying to forget a trauma; could it be her husband and child died together in traumatic deaths? Also, the space travel may not be real, it could be another simulation and they've advanced to another level.

I made it to episode 5 only by sheer endurance. This show was so needlessly convoluted and mysterious and was so vague that I became annoyed and irritated. I liked it up to the the point when the Kerberos crew went onto the Prometheus and found the boy, but after that, it was too much thrown into an already puzzling mix: the creepy boy, crawling into ducts in ship, the dude with the square device tapping into some control panel, time slowing down when the female lead was shot at, the lead female and her flashbacks. all the other flashbacks from captain and black guy, etc. I got a little more interested when the passengers threw themselves overboard, but then it was back to more vagueness and mind games.

I bailed after episode 5 cause I felt the ending would not be satisfying enough to have endured hours of BS.

That's funny, Episode 5 is when I think it really took off.

R67, I think that's absolutely the case with D and E--it's one of the reasons that Maura has to wake up, D can't fix things in reality.

I'm undecided about your second point--it's certainly possible, particularly with the relatively primitive interface we see, but there's a number of ways the story could go if it's some version of reality.

I have a lot less patience for TV due to being burned so many times in the last few years. There's so many hours that I got cheated out of watching shows and hoping that the ending made up for the previous X hours. These are some of m=the recent shows that left me hanging: The Sinner w/Bill Pullman, The Patient w/ Steve Carrell, Open Range w/Josh Brolin, The Midnight Club by Mike Flanagan, Pam and Tommy, and the list goes on.

It's a little intriguing and a little slow.

The one thing I hope the show explains but I expect it will not is why all these people continually speak their own languages to others who don't speak the language, and never make any effort to actually communicate. One person speaks Polish, the other speaks Cantonese, the blabber on to themselves and never make any effort to translate. And then in this episode, one of the crewmen made an announcement in German to everyone in steerage, including Danes and Poles and others, and everyone seems to have understood what he said. Hrrm.

So when they were on the ship, the scene begins in the dining room. The other characters are seen and introduced or described. The show progresses, they find the other ship, there’s a mutiny, passengers start jumping overboard…is all this supposed to be one (very long, very surreal) day?

The weather is uniformly gray. They’re at sea with no landmarks. It’s supposed to be disorienting but the French woman was wearing the same dress with the insect embroidery at the neck throughout. Most of the other characters’ clothing was indistinguishable, I was reading the subtitles, but hers was really obvious. Knowing how the season ended and their efforts to find out what was really happening to them, it’s interesting that none of them came to that realization.

One pod is empty, so it could have contained Daniel, but that doesn't make sense given that he tells Maura that she has to wake up and save things--meaning Daniel can't. I think both Daniel and Elliot are AIs--uploads of people that have died or, at the very least, aren't around.

I couldn't tell who was who in the pods either, but Reddi says Maura is next to Eyk and Virginia (brothel madame, who's an interesting character. We didn't see her backstory, but she's the first model in the opening credits). Krester and his family are there, but minus his youngest sister. Li Ting (?) and her mother are both there.

I could see the brother holding his nephew hostage in some form (fully alive and conscious, or in stasis) and Daniel hiding to find some way to fight his brother-in-law.

If they don't bring back hottie Maciej Musial, I'm done.

I don't understand why Krester or Olek or anyone else who "died" going over the side of the boat would be in the pods. Why wouldn't it just be those eight people who were left on the ship after the lemming leap who were running all around it trying to escape the spreading black metal filings from that kid's game where you put them on the face of the guy to give him a beard and/or hair.

R96, Because the simulation reboots after every days and in the previous simulations everyone has died. Basically, you relive the simulation over and over until you survive it or find a way to break out of it. That's why Maura unlocking it matters--she created it, though she no longer has control over it, and can presumably stop people reliving the nightmare over and over.

I know it’s pronounced ‘Ike’ but every time I see Eyk written my brain says ‘Eek’. It won’t stop.
