I really liked this podcast! It was pretty spooky, given the current state of politics in America. This show presents a fictional situation that could actually come true this day in age with the alternate realities that get dreamt up by people in positions of power. Very enlightening. Just love Rami Malek as the lead! His voice is a beautiful representation of the real emotion he exudes while performing.
I was looking for an audio drama like this. Blackout has a solid story with an amazing soundscape and it’s set in a realistic world. You can almost feel the cold isolation when you listen. If you’re looking for a thriller, you should give it a listen. Of course it does have some cons as well. The episodes are about 20 minutes long and sometimes I felt like the scenes were a bit rushed and didn’t have as much of an impact as they could. And sometimes the accents made me laugh when I shouldn’t have been. I don’t know if there will be a second season, but I felt satisfied with where this season ended. It ends well while leaving things open for more.
great start, good but underwhelming ending. i'm not sure if there is gonna be a second season (it sure feels like it is but i can't find the information about the continuation). great voice acting, accent acting (even though i'm not a native speaker so can be less picky about it), interesting story that kind of rushes a little bit to the end. i feel like 2-4 more episodes to delve deeper into what the fuck happened would be great so i'm earnestly waiting for 2nd season to arrive. if you want to spend some time engaged in an interesting story with good acting, the podcast is for you. very bingeable and fast-paced story and yet it is a talkative slow burn at the same time 4/5
Rami Malek is one of my favorite actors, so when I saw he stars in this I jumped right on it. All the performances are great. Everyone has a unique voice so it's clear which character is speaking even though there are a lot of different characters. There were some moments in a few episodes where I was really disappointed in the decisions some characters made, but I realized that bad decisions make good stories. Things have to go wrong so they can be fixed--it's what makes drama. And those moments were addressed later on, thankfully. I really like the premise of this. And the twist reveal in the last two episodes of the first season make the story even more interesting. The idea of "rebooting" society with a global blackout is a premise I can't wait to see play out.
