Episode 13.- Deciphering "The OA"

Episode 13.- Deciphering "The OA"

On this week's episode of Kickin' & Streamin' podcast, Jocelyn & Graham are joined by John Allison, a friend and listener who suggested we watch and make an episode about Netflix's Original Series "The OA." After binge-watching both seasons of the show, host and co-host Graham & Jocelyn felt they would need help to break down one of the most complex and mind-bending series ever produced in the history of Netflix. Graham called upon John and he responded the call.  We start the episode talking about the recent passing of Chewbacca actor Peter Mayhew who John tells us he had met on several occasions. John reminisced about how Mr. Mayhew, despite being seemingly under tremendous amount of physical discomfort due to his unusual growth, was always gentle, kind, and courteous to every fan who approached him. RIP Peter Mayhew (aka) Chewbacca! We then moved on to talking about some of the upcoming series we're excited about on the various streaming platforms, as well as some other series about which we haven't got the slightest idea of what to expect from them. Graham and Jocelyn announced the premiering of "Dead to Me" on Netflix, "Lucifer," "The Society," as well as animated series "Tuca & Bertie." Jocelyn also point out the release of "Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile," a movie about notorious American serial killer Ted Bundy on Netflix, starring Zac Efron. Graham expressed interest in the HBO mini series "Chernobyl" on HBO, the return of Amazon Prime series "Sneaky Pete," starring Giovanni Ribisi. Graham brought up an apparently newly acquired series on Amazon called Whisenpoof; which none of us seemed to know what it was about, until we later realized it's animated Canadian-American series. We discussed actor Sterling K Brown's announcement a few weeks ago about joining the cast of "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" (Amazon Prime), we also discussed how none of us thinks too highly about "This is Us."  We then moved on to discussing our main topic of the week, Netflix Original Series "The OA," created, written, produced, and starring Brit Marling with her writing partner Zal Batmanglij.
