RATING
I'd love another season or even another few more episodes. I'd hate to think that David's story is done. The stories were great and kept me hooked.
"Horrific city and its denizens narrated to you by a man with a calm voice, to the backdrop of gentle rainfall" is an odd premise, but Eskew does it extremely well The various episodes were all different, all hitting in different ways. Episode 5 stuck with me even now, after 30 episodes of the podcast The ending especially was very well done. I'm not sure if it's what I expected - but equally I wouldn't want it to be any different.
A narrative diamond. The atmosphere is (other than rainy) mysterious and sinister, in the best of ways. There is something to be said about some themes being potentially a no-no by some people. But I've listened to it in the dark, while rain and wind were claiming the world out of the windows and stayed for more. Don't listen to it with the lights on.
If you like strange and unusual horror, this is it for you. There are no other podcasts like I Am In Eskew. I saw something once that said you should try to create art that only /you/ can make. That's how Eskew makes me feel while listening; it's so uniquely original. Each episode builds on the surreal world of Eskew. While at first they might seem like mostly unconnected one-off stories, the plot and character arcs start tying together so subtly you almost don't notice, until it finishes in a finale I couldn't have have imagined better.
The first few episodes were just okay, but by episodes 4 and 5 I was hooked. I’m loving this weird city and the delivery style of David’s narration. He’s such an average, keep-your-head-down Brit but living in a not so average place. He’s intelligent with a dark humor, and he’s definitely grown on me. It can be challenging to keep a single-narrator show interesting but David keeps me enraptured almost every time. As of this review I’m a little over ten episodes in (out of 30), and I have already noticed some very nice Mieville influences. I am continually amazed at the originality of this show.
