News & Interviews for The OA: Season 1
Oh, man. If we take The OA exactly 1000 times less seriously than The OA takes itself, we might have found the best show of 2016.
What's most striking... is the richness of the story. It weaves in such a variety of textures and styles and allusions that it sometimes feels transparently absurd, but it's hard not to be drawn in given the wealth of different objects on offer.
I haven't seen anything quite like The OA, whose twists were gripping enough to keep me going even in some moments when I'd otherwise have been rolling my eyes.
The OA feels like a singular, focused effort, which gives it an addictive confidence... Such an aggressive reach... eventually leads to the story tripping over itself, but the imagination is to be admired more than the end result derided.
It feels like the sort of show that would be a background joke in an episode of BoJack Horseman and/or something Jack Donaghy would pitch on 30 Rock.
The OA showcases minority voices that are largely ignored in American media.
Though the show was slow going at first, its interesting narrative and beautiful visual tidbits kept me coming back for more.
The show seems oblivious to how daft it all looks, perhaps dazzled by its own profundity as it alludes to various half-baked pseudo-philosophical and mystical ideas.
[Brit] Marling and [Zal] Batmanglij have created an intriguing universe, populated with sympathetic and real characters. Ultimately rewarding, The OA makes you feel proud to be TV viewer.
At times it can feel like a term paper written by two honor students trying to cram in all of their esoteric research but the sense of possibility and ambition is infectious.
Audience Reviews for The OA: Season 1
Apr 07, 2021Captivating story telling. Hard to stop watching.
Mar 15, 2021long and boring. powered through the first season, but the first episode of season 2 was too much for me to bear. not wasting any more of my time with this.
Mar 04, 2021Dark, intriguing and a mystical slow burn that keeps you on edge while grounding you with the much recognisable teenager adventure type of show.
Feb 18, 2021I couldn't even make it through the first two episodes of season one. What a mess!. I really tried to wait for it to get interesting. Great concept and boring visualization. Im so hurt because I expected more. It left me feeling empty 😭.
Jan 20, 2021Oh what A mess. Maybe that's what the title stands for
Jan 13, 2021Got to episode 5 and my wife bailed out, just too slow and boring for her. I will persevere for a while yet though as I am sufficiently intrigued.
Jan 13, 2021It was hard to know what direction the show was going where I was ready to stop watching half way through . But I spent so much time watching it already . The ending was not believable at all and disappointing .
Dec 20, 2020This show try's to be intelligent, with mystery and humour but it is just cringe worthy and unbearable to watch. I tried to give it the benefit of the doubt and wait to pass judgement on it until after season two but season two is just as bad.
Dec 20, 2020Do not waste your time on this show. It is just a mess, runs in every direction and just never captures your attention.
Nov 30, 2020The most intensely real exploration of multidimensional exploration I've ever seen. I was often feeling full body chills through many powerful scenes. I usually avoid dark shows, but The OA explored darkness with purpose. Watching was almost like being trapped in a maze, but as pieces come together it feels as though a puzzle has been mastered. I am devastated that Netflix would axe it after 2 seasons as new revelations come to the surface at the end of season 2. I am very picky with shows and this one is a true winner. HIGHLY recommended.
