The OA is a mystery drama that will take you back to when you were most innocent. The different aspects of life this show touches upon are vast and the individual struggles are apparent. What happens to us when we die, where does our soul go? How do we come back and what do we learn? All questions the peek everyone's interest and all questions that are developed during this series. This show is an odd one, but one worth delving into for the mystery fanatic.
Beautifully inspiring... I'm not sure if it was the time of my life I watched or the simplicity of the show that really touched me. For every 10 persons who believe you are crazy, there will be at least one that will not!
After watching the first season of this show my first impression was "WTF was that?!?!" and not in a good way. Admittedly, after the first episode I'd pigeon holed it into a show that I could stream in the background of my house while I was doing chores and listen to while multitasking. When season 2 took forever to come I'd forgotten what season 1 was like so I watched the very final episode and found that I wanted to re-watch season 1... then the weirdest thing happened... I fell in love with the show. I watched season 2 and it was awesome (as was the first on second watch). This show does require your full attention when watching in order to see the big picture and I do wish it wasn't cancelled as you can see from the ending of season 2 that season 3 would have been amazing.
It seemed to have great promise. As the show progressed, I got the idea much of it was taken from old mythology and mixed with new science and too much pharmacology.
As far as the acting - WOW! excellent work all around. This was a show I couldn't stop watching until the end. Which was VERY confusing and seemed like they either cut it short or had different writers. Something switched in the style of the presentation. Where the story seemed too drawn out, it suddenly finished before I was ready for it.
So I managed to survive my stupified reaction to the stupid 'movements' of the first season. I brought myself to watch the second season and was thrilled that the writers moved away from 'the movements'. Instead I got a giant freaking octopus that speaks to her with an Asian accent thru a weird ritual while on stage. It is beyond me how this show gets such high ratings! Fire the writers for god's sake!
