The Network makes sure Profiles eat right & stay focused but No. 24 - thanks to the sudden appearance of a mysterious bird - is finding that difficult.

All of the episodes were short, which was great, but the arc of the story left me feeling flat. Admittedly, there were issues with the feed so it is possible I missed something, but I was disappointed by the end.

The "speaking into a tape recorder" trope kills the experience for this audio drama. The story is your typical whodunit noir. Not horrible but I cannot recommend.

A creepy modern fantasy that begins as a murder mystery and slowly pulls back the curtain on a hidden world of dark action and adventure. Filled with shocking surprises and a mid-season twist that will leave you breathless. You may think you have it figured out, but nothing in the world of the Hidden People is as it seems.

This one just didn't do it for me. While I enjoyed the cultural differences that we do not usually have in audio-drama, the constant forced cursing and mediocre ending just kinda left me flat.

I absolutely loved this concept, but the writing goes downhill fast. Instead of making this an audio drama, the writer leaves this is a sound enhanced audio book. Unfortunately, the characters devolve into the most misogynistic tropes I've ever listened to. The story begins to sputter, and in season three we basically get a rehash of what happened in the first two seasons from another characters point of view. So disappointing.

When Carly Parker’s friend Yumiko goes missing under very mysterious circumstances, Carly’s search for her friend leads her headfirst into a ancient mysterious game known only as Rabbits. Soon Carly begins to suspect that Rabbits is much more than just a game, and that the key to understanding Rabbits, might be the key to the survival of our species, and the Universe, as we know it.

One of my biggest pet peeves is repetition in a show and the writing in Rabbits is nothing but repetition. We rehash and rehash the same point endlessly and go nowhere. The entire show could have been done in three episodes. It was boring. Pass.

Thirteen years after the fall of modern civilization, five survivors live in relative harmony on an isolated farm, where they rarely discuss their lives Before. The delicate balance of this household is upturned when a sixth survivor arrives at their doorstep with an empty stomach and a world of possibilities. The group grapples with the implications of the new arrival – the resurrection of long-lost hopes and the introduction of very real dangers – ultimately embarking on a journey that will force them to confront the lives they lived Before and the question of what it means to live a good life in a post-apocalyptic world.

If you are not going to bother giving your characters names, I am not going to remember them. Unfortunately, the whole story is mostly forgettable.

Season one was great. They should have stopped there. The second season is a rehash of the first and it is done with more narration. It didn't enhance the overall story and it should have been left off.
