There’s a time traveling train, y’all. A TRAIN. That TRAVELS THROUGH TIME. Needless to say, I love the trope alone, but as a bonus this show also happens to be really really really frickin’ good! Our protagonist, Nora, is so instantly likable and entertaining--vulnerable yet dry and sardonic, self-effacing and competent, funny and witty and so relatable. The show is an adventure at heart but also comes with a second episode where Nora realizes that she has run out of antidepressants and is now stuck stopping only in time periods where she can’t get more (the train just keeps going and won’t make a stop in her time for a long while, we’re assured right off the bat), which is an issue we’ve never seen addressed in time traveling narratives that we’ve always wondered about because how does NO ONE need their meds while they’re on quests??? It’s relatable and also gives her a chance to be an extremely competent and proactive protagonist (SCIENCE) and gives her very relatable, not often discussed obstacles that are so often overlooked in most media.
An interesting idea about a time-traveling train but the show hasn't really exploited that. Some really fun characters with a nice back and forth but overall the main story hasn't really grabbed me yet. The show deals with queer issues very well and I can't wait for them to dive even deeper into that. Also if you have an issue with lackluster audio quality this show isn't for you as the audio for the show isn't the greatest.
