Trailer released for new Netflix series The Oa

Netflix has been killing it lately with original content: BOJACK HORSEMAN, STRANGER THINGS, FULLER HOUSE, etc. While there have been a few duds (*cough*THE RANCH*cough*), I think overall Netflix has been focused on producing quality content. Or it has amassed so much information about our viewing habits that they've been able to mathematically calculate what we'd most likely stream with some sort of Orwellian-algorithm. But either way, damn fine shows regardless.

This leads us to the new mysterious show THE OA about "a woman who resurfaces after having been missing for seven years. Blind when she disappeared, she now has her eyesight restored." Here's the trailer:

I like it. It's haunting, mysterious, and seems to have a weird sci-fi element to it. Now it's always a gamble with these shows that deal with a central mystery (this one being: where has she been these seven years, and how did she regain her sight), since many times the answers are never satisfactory (look at LOST). But, speaking of LOST, the show also seems to be more focused on the human side of the equation, mainly how the main character deals with adjusting to her previous life. If it focuses on that and not the mystery, the show could be great. We'll see.

So what do you Schmoes think?

THE OA begins streaming today, December 16th, 2016.

Extra Tidbit: Oa is also the name of the Green Lanterns home planet.

It was fantastic

Very good show. Slow burn, so be patient. Totally different kind of story and atmosphere from Stranger Things, but just as good IMHO. Loved the ending.

This from the same team that made "Another Earth" and "The Sound of my Voice". Loved them both and have high expectations for this as well.

Looks awesome! Hopefully this will be an awesome surprise like ST. Its nice to have the element of surprise working for Netflix. Most shows are beat over your head months before they come out taking away any intrigue. AND.... is the author of the article trolling his own article? Fuller House? Really? How about Bloodline, Marvel, Sense 8, Ajin......
