His path crosses with OA, as they try to solve the mystery of Michelle's whereabouts and a house on Nob Hill connected to the disappearance of several teenagers.

The OA truly comes into its own when you stop attempting to piece together the storyline and instead submit to Marling and Batmanglij's vision.

You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll cry from laughing or simply stare blankly at the screen as some of the weirdest s--- you've ever seen unfolds...

[The OA] manages to be stranger, more puzzling and even more addictively demented than the first season.

We'll cut to the chase. The OA Part II is a bad show when Prairie is onscreen. But! The OA is a good show when it focuses on a completely different narrative, a good old-fashioned formulaic Law & Order-type story.

The willing suspension of disbelief has to be earned, and from where I'm standing, The OA doesn't earn it.

The last episode of The OA spoke to me...I felt a wave of emotion, actually moved to tears because in that moment I saw that we are all looking for our purpose...

The OA is kind of genius, while simultaneously being incredibly silly. And you know what? I love it! I love its goofy, loopy vibe.

The sequence with Old Night is what The OA does best. At first the scene is stunning, almost laughable, in its sheer oddity, but then the mood morphs, as it pulsates with existential terror and a sort of unnerving sexuality.

What makes the Nob Hill arc unique is that it offers a thought-provoking dive into the sci-fi realm, and goes beyond ghosts and jump-scares to encourage viewers to think while providing an unpredictable journey.

The OA Part II was better than one could have ever imagined, its ingenuity and trust in its audience, coupled by the brilliant execution of its power duo, brought the series to new heights.

    Each time I expected pain or violence I was met with an unpredictable amount of compassion. There's nothing like it on television.

    Season 2 was much better than Season 1 ... would have given it five stars -- but it completely jumped the shark at the end.

    This second season was jaw-dropping! It really pushed the boundaries of what reality can be and if we allow our minds and spirit to open to a different life view we can become more in tune with our higher self and what reality actually is. It opens up one's thoughts and allows people to question what is possible in this universe. Best show Netflix had and very very underrated.

    Mind bending series that I would love to see till the end of all 5 seasons.

    Absolutely amazing show. I was in LOVE with both seasons. I am utterly heartbroken that Neflix cancelled it. I hope it gets picked up somewhere else!!!

    The themes of this show continue to amaze! It is so positive and life-affirming-I'm a fan for life now. I appreciate the efforts to revive the series-Netflix blew it big time by cancelling a 5-season arc after 2 seasons.

    Best show ever written for Netflix, shame they didn't recognise it.
  • Aug 11, 2019
    So much to offer in just 8 episodes. The show has such uniqueness that no other show can ever come closer to give. loved the first and this season and patiently waiting for the next season which would also be a masterpiece and shows like this make me stay on netflix.
