Spoilers below. Read at own risk. Overall fantastic writing and acting. Most of the romances and setups were great. The majority of episodes handled plenty of delicate topics with grace and in organic ways. It faced race conflicts, religious persecutions, and more without breaking character or flow. What really killed it for me was Matteo's sudden existence and importance. Showing up for less than an hour of run time and being horny more than half of it, only to be the end game macguffin just felt weak. It would have been great to see any number of other characters set up with Dr. Sharma, or setting a romance between Lou and David. Van actually would have been a perfect candidate for Dr. Sharma
Started because of all the good recs, stopped listening after about eight episodes because I found it boring and couldn't really stand the main char.
i love it. gay rights.
Great production and voice acting. A podcast you really need to pay attention to as there are different timelines with different versions of the same people. Time travelling mice episode was very thought provoking. Definatley worth a listen
A very intresting podcast that was accesible to me, while still making me think a lot! I loved it!
The first season here is good. The problem is that Mischa Stanton has a tremendous ego and, as a showrunner, they are not very good at encouraging their writers to deliver top-notch material. So the show suffers big time over the subsequent seasons. It thinks that it's being mindful and cutting-edge, when it really just bores. Especially with the obnoxious Kristen DiMercurio, who has no range as an actor, in the lead. This is an audio drama as dead as the dodo. Look elsewhere.
ars PARADOXICAthanks for the review, excited to hear your amazing medium-defining podcast whenever you'd like to drop it!
Brilliant writing. Excellent acting.
I was introduced to this show through the crossover with the Bright Sessions. It ended up scratching an itch I didn't even realize I had. So well crafted with some twists I could have never seen coming, that may or may not have even happened. Time travel can be complicated, and this show embraces that.
This podcast is a brilliant work of speculative fiction, full of wonderfully complex characters whose actions are painfully human and believable. The story pulled me in right away and has kept me wanting to know more with each episode. And it’s got positive representation for women, people of color, and queer people, and also handles other social issues (like gun violence and corrupt politicians) in an equally admirable way. I’m no mathematician or physicist, but I read and enjoyed The Elegant Universe by Brian Greene, which was apparently enough for me to actually understand this show’s scientific jargon most of the time! My brain loves to ponder philosophical questions, particularly metaphysics, and The Elegant Universe provided a lot of fuel for thoughts about the nature of time, dimensions, spooky action, etc. It’s exciting to see this show weaving some of that stuff into a thoroughly enjoyable narrative.
Get your real science fix satisfied by an audio drama that gives you all the strangeness of X-Files with the drama of Fringe.
Don't think I finished this one. Just couldn't get into the story, didn't grab me.
A time travel story with people getting stranded in unpleasant places and the machinations of a secret government agency across time -- in both directions. Outstanding production and a complex story.
Original story, superb acting., excellent sound design make this a compelling uniquely set time travel tale. Serious storylines blended with just the right amount of humour here and there to keep the listening experience a genuine pleasure..
I love Sally, but she really has a problem regarding keeping friends! She's so resourceful, but she constantly gets in to trouble, although she try's to avoid it. Fantastic production, awesome voice acting, and time travel is always exiting!
Okay production, but I just couldn't get into it. I really hate stories where you wind up in the past.
One of my favorite scripted drama podcasts! Time travel done really well.
