Tarsem Singh and a stellar cast are going to take you on a magic twister ride that is going to have you wishing you could binge the full event.
Some shows end up ruined by bad endings, and while The OA doesn't end any better than some of the lesser M. Night Shyamalan works, it dodges the bullet by being so engaging throughout. You may not love the end, but it doesn't spoil the ride.
Michelle Dockery is hoping to take over television again. It's a trickier run this time, but just as worthy.
This may not be the Sarah Jessica Parker you're expecting, but you'll still fall for her, and then you'll wonder what the hell is going on.
Matt LeBlanc tries like hell, but he can't save the writing here, which hopes so hard to be mediocre that it can't possibly miss.

Mixon has a solid group backing her, and there's a reality here that people connect with. In this case, it might turn out too familiar, but Mixon should be able to hold it together with this unapologetic brand of fun.
It would be enough to say that it's fascinating and enthralling, and will leave you desperate for the next episode, but it's also wildly fun and the characters will eventually own you.
