Don't ask me to explain or justify. I'll admit off the top that I didn't "get" it. I just submitted to this Netflix enigma wrapped in a mystery which somehow magically transformed into a TV mini-series...despite my usually rejecting anything remotely spiritual or new-agey. All the actors (most of whom were unfamiliar except writer-actress Britt Marley, Jason Isaacs, and my fave from Brooklyn, Emory Cohen) were amazing. I've added Patrick Gibson and Brandon Parea to my must-follow list of actors. Anyway, I'm not sure what I saw; but I'd love to see a second season, where ever it goes. In any case, the same year that produced two mind-blowing flights of fantasy like The OA and Stranger Things couldn't have been all bad.
