OA Season 1 left me with mixed feelings. It was like "if season 2 rocks it, season 1 will be a genius set up but if season 2 sucks, season 1 was an equal waste." I've never seen a TV show that really required me to watch the second season for me to make my feelings about the previous season concrete. That said, I'm 2 eps into season 2. I'm enjoying it so far although it's starting to point in a kind of VR cyber crime thriller. If I recall Season 1 left us with the question of whether or not OA was just a BS artist who made everything up based on the book names on her shelf. Season 2 doesn't really much address that. We're just kinda "yep, no, she wasn't shittin' those poor high school kids".

They'll address it but you won't feel any better about the show in general.

It's worth watching but it definitely belongs on the "Not the very best" list.

enjoying season two of amazon's tick series.  I think they improved some of the tone issues in season 1.
I disavow anyone in the movement involved in any illegal,unethical, sexist, or racist behavior. However, I don't have the energy or time to investigate each person and case, and a lack of individual disavowals for each incident should not be construed as condoning such behavior.

Agreed, worth watching season 2 if you saw season 1, but also worthy of being on the not the very best list. Not sure if I'll watch season 3 if they make one.

Yeah, can't disagree. Worth watching, but not essential viewing.
