not going with the full 5 stars. it good a bit painful with the noise levels or mixing or whatever the technical term is where I am having to max volume to hear speech and then the next thing is so loud I almost crash the car. Also, for where the story is going, it is just taking too long for what it is.
This show gave me *all the feels* and I loved it! I mean, I hated it, but I also loved it so so so so so much! Limited series are often amazing in their containment, and this show is up there with the best of them!
Soooooooooo good! Like if you have not already put this in your ears why not? It is written so well. Production is amazing and I just can't say enough good things about it.
Incredible acting, incredible sound design, incredible story. The double narratives work so well here, and the chemistry between the two main characters is made even more heartbreaking because we know how their story ends from the start. A beautiful, smart show that will grab you from episode 1.
A really nice short one-off sci-fi tragedy story that you can knock out in an afternoon. The acting is really good and helps bolster up the characters while I do enjoy this show and recommend it I am not a huge fan of the framing device of having the story be told in a non-linear fashion. The non-linear fashion works at times but I think more time could have been put into the romance and dynamic between our two lead characters, a stronger understanding of their bond would help add to the sadness of the drama.
A Phenomenal and Eerie Tale Easily one of the best audio dramas i have listened to, and I have heard quite a few! The non linear story telling, background ambience, and sfx really step this story up that just captivates you with a tale you can't look(Hear?) away from. If you're looking for a great horror sci fi tale then this will not disappoint. It builds incredibly well, giving you just enough information to let your mind take flight with so many "What ifs" and right when you think you solved it the story gets weirder and takes you for a twist. Get ready to hop in your envirosuit and check out some dead aliens because this is a story you won't forget!
This podcast is told in a fascinating way and it's unlike anything I've ever listened to. It's a homage to the writers that - due to format - the listener knows how the story as a whole will end, yet the final episode still emotionally wrecked me
Great quality, great acting, and holds your interest. Enjoyed listening to their journey and what happened next.
Excellent sound engineering and a well-acted script that pulls you in. Good old fashioned 80s sci-fi horror fun!
Mainlined this podcast in the span of one day. I was hooked instantly from the first prologue episode, and it only got better from there. When it's done right, that mix of scifi and horror can't be beat and this was done Right! You know from the start that it doesn't end well for Chel and Peter, and even then you can't help but get attached to them (especially Chel). I felt for them so much, episode 12 almost killed me flat out. I can't wait to see other stories from the same universe!
I wasn't sure how the story could work with the strange order, but the creative team chose the best possible way to enjoy the story and I was happy I listened to it the way it was intended! Great acting, great writing, solid sound design!
It's alright I guess, if you can feel much sympathy for characters who are Too Dumb To Live. You can skip to Entry 8 to find out exactly how dumb.
Chilling, horrifying and utterly disturbing. The outstanding acting and sound design tells a story of love, fear, hope and despair. The writing is clever, exiting and unpredictable in the most positive way.
