The OA (Season 2) Never Watch
MY BRAIN MELTED
The second season came and went,
and I felt like one of few people who noticed it’s release, and watched it right away.
Let’s make this clear right now: The OA season 2 was a masterpiece.
… And now Netflix has cancelled it.
Likely because of the poor reception.
AND IT’S A GOD DAMN SHAME
Look, I know. This show can be hard to get into.
Additionally, it gradually descends down a rabbit hole from a relatively believable premise, to absolutely batshit crazy.
Yet, the characters remain rooted in reality, often times facing backlash from friends and family that think they are all insane.
Which, makes sense.
It’s worth sticking with it. It runs in the same vein as Dark and Stranger Things, revolving around a tight-knit cast of kids and adults dealing with supernatural forces. The stakes are higher here though, as not all characters don an impervious plot armor.
With that said, this season makes up for everything wrong about season 1.
Additionally, the finale this time is nothing short of mind-melting.
This is among the best television of the year.
Watch it, and enjoy.
Additionally, if you haven’t already seen the precursor movie to the OA, I encourage you to check out ‘Sound Of My Voice‘.
