    Yes. I rewatched it before S2 and still found it spectacular.

    For what it's worth, I enjoyed season 2 more than season 1 (and I loved season 1). In particular, I found a few of the ideas/concepts explored in season 2 to be truly astonishing.

    Though I didn’t connect with many of the story specifics in S2, I was all-in on the madness of Old Night. That was just so bonkers, I had to love it!

    I've seen a lot of crazy stuff on TV in the last decade or so, but for my money nothing tops how astonished I was as that scene unfurled.

    “I don’t believe the feminine is sublime and the masculine is horrifying. I believe both are valuable, essential, powerful. But we have maligned one, venerated the other, and fallen into exaggerated performances of both that cause harm to all. How do we restore balance? Or how do we evolve beyond the limitations that binaries like feminine/masculine present in the first place?”

    An essay by Brit Marling, co-creator and lead in The O. A. It has some spoilers, but isn’t really about this show. The article is social and political. I post as it gives some insight into the motivations behind The OA.
