    So it's gotten a lot of positive buzz. Maybe they can go do a sequel to Another Earth. I know, I know, the ending was supposed to be left up to the viewer, and the very last scene was a "OH $#@! NO!" moment, but I'd just like to see some world building there. Would be perfect for Netflix.

    Anyways, now that a bunch have seen it, there is talk of series 2 (but not official):

    http://www.econotimes.com/The-OA-Sea...parison-479802

    During an interview with Esquire, Marling and Batmanglij expressed their enthusiasm over a possible renewal on Netflix. When asked if they were willing to do future seasons, Marling replied, “Oh yeah, we'd of course love to keep telling the story, and we've spent some time thinking about the mathematics of where it would go.”

    Batmanglij explained, “We planned out a larger story when we started, because we didn't want to go into it without having the larger picture planned out---I think the audience can always tell that, or feel it. But we also wanted it to be its own standalone piece.”

    He added, “So again, I think the novel analogy works really well, it's a novel, but it could easily be a series of novels. And I think it would be best as a series of novels!”

    Marling admitted that leaving the ending open and as well as leaving questions unanswered was exciting enough. Batmanglij assured that whether they get commissioned for more seasons or not, the series was designed as a thought-provoking mystery and that it was up to the viewers to solve the series’ riddles.

    i liked it. better than most stuff on tv. a super-natural vibe like stranger things, but instead of nostalgic they go for creepy/suspense. they better do a season 2 because the ending was very open-ended.

    Not really sure what to think.
    I struggled through the thing, and often found myself fast forwarding.

    The whole time she's telling the story, I'm thinking about my wife trying to tell a story, and how I want to tell her, "Tell me the last part first".

    My wife and I watched this because people kept telling us how great it was.
    We kept waiting for it to get better - then they started dancing.
    We laughed and laughed and then regretted the 8 hours wasted watching this trash.

    The stupid dancing is what did it for me.
    I reeeaaally wanted to see them integrate the African anteater dance into it.

    I found the show stimulating, but not until like episode 5 or 6. The "moves" are a little weird. Not sure what other device(s) could have been used in their place though.

    I liked it. Yeah the dancing was a little weird but I liked that they were doing something different with this show.

    It had some flaws but overall I enjoyed it. I'll watch Season 2 if it gets approved.

    I thought the movements, individually, seemed odd, verging on off-putting. When The Five stand up at the end to perform them, though, it was incredibly moving. I thought that was a powerful scene, and quite a way to end the season (or series).

    Side note, Brit Marling has another movie called 'Sound of my Voice'. I haven't seen it but it sounds interesting. She certainly comes up with some unique ideas.

    'Two documentary filmmakers attempt to penetrate a cult who worships a woman who claims to be from the future.'

    I liked it overall, the "movements" did get a wtf chuckle from me.

    That's a really interdasting theory, Lockport. Really intriguing.

    Also some details I either though about or read from other people's speculations...
