RATING
A little over the top, but really funny. I'll keep listening if there's another season.
Wonderfully funny 90's throwback combined with silly demons.
A well made audio drama that takes a look back at 1999 and puts in some hell-spawn for good measure. Fun characters that bounce off each other really well and a simple story about ending the world makes this an easy listen. For me, it took a few episodes to find its feet but after that point, I found this an enjoyable listen and I am interested to hear more.
Look, I love a well-executed joke about Hot Topic so I'm the ideal audience for this, I was IN. Set in 1999 in a suburban mall, with an ensemble of misfit demons from Hell, this is a show that is so specific in the vibe it wants to create and so committed to immersing you in it, you can’t help but be won over from that awesome theme song onward. It has some of my favorite comedic punchlines in any audio comedy (there’s a line about Satan’s favorite dish in episode one that I’ll never get over, I was 100% in love from there on out). Anything less than full commitment from the actors would not have worked and I’m happy to report they are batting 1000 (is that the phrase? whichever one is the great one)--perfect pairing of material to artists in every way. LOVE
I love this show. The demons are wonderfully awful and the nineties are also wonderfully awful. Even though they're, well, demons, you can't help but root for this band of dorks as they damn their way through life at the mall.
What a wild ride this podcast is and I'm here for every second of it. These demons are the best and I only hope for good things for all of them. The story is hilarious and it nails the 1999 setting to a tee.
There are very few things that I hate more than a guy exporting his personal drama into his workplace, angrily shouting and berating his employee for things that she had nothing to do with, and the show acting like that's not toxic workplace bullshit. Demon or not, comedic sociopathy or not, I hate the way that this show just does nothing to address it. He doesn't apologize for turning his employee into a verbal punching bag, doesn't show her kindness or respect, and yet, his employee likes him. This easy forgiveness for entitled jerks needs to die. Most of the other characters are fine and Xaphan is great. Crucially, none of them are economically dependent on jerkface, so they get to insult him with impunity, which makes my heart sing. But the episodes feel like they run too long and the central mystery concerns the absence of a beloved character, or so they keep telling me. Unfortunately, that's not the same as showing me, so I find myself not caring.
