dumb reasons to watch ‘the OA’ on netflix: an actual mad scientist vs stairs
rewatching part of The OA and bc i am an awful person - like, legit - i am laughing my fucking ass off at the end of “Champion” when she pushes Hap down the stairs bc oh my fucking god it sounds like
he literally falls down like
all of the stairs
like all the stairs in the leaning tower of pisa. every staircase in the goddamn world. just, all of the fucking stairs. all of them.
like hand to god it feels like it is just a solid minute of the sound of him falling down the stairs and jesus h christ i am wheezing here shit
have the writers on this show never fallen down stairs before?? backwards, at that. how is he not covered in head-to-toe scratches and bruises the next ep. how is he not nursing a broken arm, broken ribs, and a fucking concussion. how is he not dead, y’all,ain’t the floor at the bottom of those stairs made of some sandblasted rock and/or fucking concrete??
new insane ‘the OA’ theory, Hap has some goddamn wolverine healing powers or some shit, i mean damn
I found a box of this paper at the back of a bureau so I must write to you as I am mourning for my lost innocence. It never looked like living. The doctors despaired of it from the start. Soon I am off to Venice to stay with my papa in his palace of sin. I wish you were coming. I wish you were here. I am never quite alone. Members of my family keep turning up and collecting luggage and going away again but the white raspberries are ripe. I have a good mind not to take Aloysius to Venice. I don’t want him to meet a lot of horrid Italian bears and pick up bad habits.
Love or what you will. S.
