Although I sympathise and somewhat agree (echoed in the opening paras of my review), if it helps, this second season is an improvement and has much less interpretive danceThe single worst thing that Netflix has ever done. Utterly laughable dross. How in hell did this get a second series?
What was an excellent notion for a tv series reduced to interpretive dance nonsense.
It could have been a superb, exploratory feast of fine ideas and extrapolation and became instead a whining teenage cac fest.
And despite his excellence, even Jason Isaacs couldn’t rescue this gooey garbage.
Completely agree about taking a chance, it’s mighty important in order to make film and tv increasingly enjoyable, entertaining and, when possible, thought provoking; I was seriously looking forward to this one.I admired the all out unrepentant bonkers ambition of this show; and enjoyed most of the first series trying to work out what on earth was going on. Looking forward to this.
I always feel like an apologist for these sort of derided shows. Same with Altered Carbon or Sense 8. But without people taking a chance we'd just have procedural crime shows wall to wall.
I think you mean 'Another Earth'...?Brit Marling is awesome, and I like her ideas. She also wrote and starred in a film called Another Planet, which is certainly entertaining and thought provoking.
Chill, man. Its an internet forum not a classroom.I think you mean 'Another Earth'...?
I find it really difficult to take opinions seriously when people can't even get the name of the movie right!!!
"Another Planet" might be a Freudian slip... it's where you might be?
As the intended 'recipient' of the "pole" comment, I thought it was hilarious too and totally deserved on my part. Kudos to @Paul7777x for such a great comeback.the pole insertion comment was funny but out of line on an enthusiasts forum like this one surely?
pole well taken sirAs the intended 'recipient' of the "pole" comment, I thought it was hilarious too and totally deserved on my part. Kudos to @Paul7777x for such a great comeback.
I don't need anyone else to tell me what's appropriate if it's directed towards me. That's for me to decide. And I think it's fine... made me chuckle.
What an excellent summary that is and thats only from the first paragraph!The OA risked all to literally take viewers to another dimension, only to end on a world-class anti-climax that failed to capitalise on everything that had gone before.
