Out of all the series I have watched especially on Netflix (which is a lot) if someone was to ask me what my one of my favourite series is, ‘The OA’ would definitely be one of my top choices.
What is it about?
Having gone missing seven years ago, the previously blind Prairie (otherwise known as OA) returns home, now in her twenties with her sight fully restored plus now she has severe scaring on her back which she will not explain nor does she remember how she received them.
While many believe she is a miracle, others worry that she could be dangerous.
When she is first questioned, she not only does not remember her name but anyone she meets, at least at first.
The truth is frequently never simple or easy.
The OA is a delightfully odd TV series, not at all like ‘Stranger things’ and similar comparisons that shouldn’t be made.
It is a series more similar to ‘Sense 8’ (another favourite TV series of mine), that is an oddity unto itself, drawing the viewer in to the plots of the various characters and the spooky, spiritual and thriller themed story line that keeps you guessing upon every episode.
It is a series with exceptional story telling and exceptional characters and acting with actors including….
It seems like every good thriller themed TV series or film I watch Jason Isaac’s is in it! He is a terrific actor and I cant fault his performance in this or anything else I’ve seen him in, he plays his chosen characters exceptionally well.
I watched the first season 3 years ago in just over 2 weeks and I was hooked from the outset.
This weekend I noticed series 2 was on Netflix- as you can imagine I was EXTREMELY HAPPY! 🙏🙏😍😍 I’ve waited so long! 😭😭
It is annoying that Netflix do not promote this series enough!
I binge watched the entire second season from sat-Monday and oh my word I was NOT disappointed. 😍
With this series you’re not just satisfied watching one episode it leaves you confused and wondering and wanting so much more and if you have a curious mind like me, waiting for an answer is unbearable watching another episode is so much easier. 😂
The second season of the sci-fi series – which is co-written by its lead actor, Brit Marling – was announced by Netflix way back in February 2017, but a long period of silence followed.
This is in line with the first season, which received zero promotion before dropping out of the blue on the streaming service in December 2016.
🚫WARNING SPOILERS! 🚫
This series was definitely worth the wait but….
Again its left me wanting, needing answers!
Until next time.
