Left me wanting more
2 April 2019 | by JHeez15See all my reviews

There are some things in life that you cannot explain. One of those things is my deep love and connection to this show. I remember telling my neighbor to watch the OA. When I saw him again he said that he didn't like it and preferred Stranger Things. I thought to myself, "you missed it".

It may have been the time of life I was in when I initially was captivated by the first season of the OA. My wife and I had recently learned that we lost our first child due to a miscarriage. We were broken. This show is full of broken people.

There is so much to consume nowadays. It is rare to find the diamond in the rough, but this show was one of those times for me. I rewatched the first season in anticipation for this season and again was drawn into the deepness of the story telling. The final episode of season 1, especially the ending, is so powerful to me. When they recognize each other in the midst of a horrifying situation, and act out of courage, it truly touches me.

I thought the first episode of this season was dark, mysterious and original. For those disappointed that they didn't see the old familiar place they were expecting, well that is just it isn't it? We are on the other side now, in a way. I think about one of the greatest shows I have ever seen, The Wire, and how the second season "departed" from the first, but the final product was a dazzling masterpiece with a POINT. There was a purpose for why it was put together like that.

I am so happy they took 3 years to write this. This is a story that needs time to develop and not rushed like so much else on Netflix.

This show is special. It truly is. I want to binge the whole thing but I promised my wife I would wait for her. I am looking forward to episode 2 tomorrow night.
