I wasn’t optimistic that the second season of The OA could give me everything that I liked about the first season without just repeating it; which I would have likely enjoyed but eventually grow to dislike. Instead Zal Batmanglij and Brit Marling doubled down on the weirdness, while expanding the story in new and interesting […]
I’ve read that Netflix alters the episode order of Love, Death + Robots based upon the viewing habits of the particular subscriber. Annnnd…who cares? All Netflix likely knows about me is what I actually watch so if they’re tailoring the order of episodes due to what they perceive as my preferences, who cares (especially when […]
Ice Age is a pretty good episode, though I think I’ve seen it somewhere before. It’s well done, but the conceit is hardly an original one. It’s also the first, and likely the only, episode of the series that uses primarily live action and it’s a welcome change.

If you’re a fan of aerial combat (the warplanes in this episode, which […]
