Strange Things are Happening at Netflix
16 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

The OA is a delightfully odd TV series -- a show that is built for binge-watching. No, it's not at all like Netflix' Stranger Things, and comparisons shouldn't be made. Actually, The OA is a series that's more akin to Sense 8 -- although that's not a fair comparison either.

The OA is an oddity unto itself, one that draws the viewer in and doesn't let go easily. I'm not commenting on plot or characters, since any description may be too much of a spoiler. However, I will happily report that The OA is a story about storytelling. The cast is very good, and Brit Marling is outstanding -- both as actress and storyteller.

Netflix didn't do too much to promote The OA, but I'm glad it found it. And, I'm even happier that so many strange things seem to be coming from Netflix lately.
