Has anyone finished this show?  It started off pretty good, but I got kind of bored during episode 2.  I hope to get back into because I hear it's pretty good.  Just wondering for those who made out past the first few episodes, how is it turning out for you?

I'm only one episode in, but am about to dive into episode two. I quite liked the first episode, I have high hopes for the rest.

This has definitely been a slow burn, but holy shit the end of episode 5 has me stoked to see where this is going. It's really well produced and the cast is great.

I'm going to start episode 5 tonight after work, watched the first four yesterday afternoon. I think it's really good. I used the term "slow burn" to describe it yesterday as well. 

 

Who is that guy playing Steve?! Holy shit, what a prick. I love him.

OK I might dive back in, I would love to hear your overall reactions after watching it the entire series.

It's definitely a little dry and kinda pretentious, but that oddly isn't ruining it for me. It's like Stranger Things made for introverted emotionally repressed adults ha. The revelation at the end of episode 5 will definitely leave you wanting to see where they take it.

 

EDIT: I just finished the series...um...y'all's need to finish this shit so we can talk about it...

I have the last half of the last episode left (I made myself turn it off because I had work this morning). I'll report back once finished. 

 

My boyfriend said "This series seems kind of...trashy? But in a good way" and I agreed. It's definitely pretentious and ridiculous but I feel the same way TJ, it's not stopping me from watching it whatsoever. I'm still liking it.

There is an article about titled "The OA is bullshit. But it's beautiful bullshit." I think that sums up my thoughts on the show pretty well.

I finished too.   :blink:   although i can't say i didn't like it.  the series was very entertaining.  the characters were really intriguing.  it was great to look at, visually.  and it wasn't the same old thing.
