Got three episodes in and stopped. The story wasn't going anywhere. Based on the podcast summary, all I know at this point is about the zoo and Grindr. The dream had suspense potential, but these episodes spent no time on it. The rest of the summary sounds like this podcast could be interesting, but I'm not willing to spend more time on it.
Dreamboy is a beautiful production that deserved the second season it didn't get. I have to compare it Bubble Gum Crisis. They had a clear goal going into it, but being cut short really caused the show to suffer, which is why I rated it so low (unfortunately). So first things first: the story did not wrap up as neatly as it should have. The show was planned beyond the first season, but because of production problems, it ended prematurely. A few loose ends are left hanging around, and we'll, unfortunately, never get answers. Let's bury that by bringing up where this show really shines. The music is incredible. If I understand correctly, Dane (the actor) is a musician and provided the music. He's great! It isn't a surprise that demand for a soundtrack popped up, and he delivered. The sound effects were also amazing. I felt immersed in a way that a lot of shows simply fall short. The acting is good, but not the greatest. The choice for Luke's actor drove me nuts. As a part of the queer community, I try to respect everyone's choices... but to intentionally make yourself "sound gay" just reinforces stereotypes and does more harm than good. I know a lot of folks will take issue with that statement, but I grew up in an area rampant with homophobia. The "gay accent" only serves to foster an "us vs. them" mentality in the mind of a homophobe. Overall, this is a good show, but not top-notch.
I love nightvale presents but it took me 3 tries to try this podcast. The amount of sex in this is.. a bit too much for me. The overall story and characters are amazing and I loved the vibes but woooo was it weird at times.
Our main character is cute and awkward in all the right ways. He acts realistically but not in a soul crushing kinda way. He's definitely unique and his reactions made my summer! Not to mention, the sexy times are on point but not overpowering the story.
What a weird listen. Never been so torn on hating something and loving it at the same time. First of all, the acting and production and music were off the charts amazing. Seriously loved it from just a straight up listening aspect. From a story view, though, I can't say it really did anything for me. I thought there would be way more mystery and intrigue from the way things were set up, but unless I'm missing something, nothing actually happened. It was also pretty explicit, and while I don't really care, I just don't think it added anything to the story and felt strange. So I don't know...3 stars?
Dreamboy just hits different, and it's an experiences in itself. My favorite podcast of all times <3
I loved this podcast a lot. The narrative and the music was beautifully entwined. Super sad it only had one season, the world was not prepared for it, I guess...
I was hooked with this podcast from the very first. It has a mesmerizing soundscape, and I find the storytelling style engrossing. I believe that the trailer for this show does an excellent job showing what the series is like, the the story has enough twists and energy to keep it interesting. One note: it's not for the prudish, though neither is it over the top sexualized. I think the creators have struck a good balance in that department, but I understand that it's not for everyone. See you at the Rally...
Beautiful, poetic, dark, real. For me, healing, as I struggle to find the courage to use my own voice.
