OA - Netflix Original

Post by Ahso! »

OA is a new series on Netflix. I binge watched it and found it to be quite interesting.

I think OA might make for an engrossing discussion. Has anyone else bothered to watch it?

I'd rather discuss it instead of tell you about it. Google sources do a better job than I do at describing shows and movies.

The OA

I went to Netflix and looked episodes descriptions and it is an interesting concept but not something in my taste. I'm sure I can find 71 minutes in my busy schedule to watch the first episode.

So, I guess you are referring to "The OA"

Interesting.

I just started a series called The Travelers

Will have to put The OA on my list.

What does the title stand for?

It's on my list to watch at least the first episode, but there are a few things ahead of it.

I'm watching 'The Crown' on Netflix & loving it! No, OA I must put on the shelf for now, too much TV to view! Thanks for the recommendation, ahso.

The OA is the protagonists label I think.

There appears to be a lot of symbolism in the show. The series is fantasy but the concept and symbolism is fun to think about. I found myself very engrossed. I only gave it 3 stars immediately after watching but I'm going to change the 3 to a 5.

Leaving ratings allows Netflix to understand the kind of stories you're interesting in watching so they can make recommendations.
