Reviews of The Magnus Archives
This podcast right here is the reason why I decided to move from TV shows and series in general to podcasts. I gave the teaser and trailers a quick listen, decided to listen to the first episode until the end to see what it was all about and fast-forward two weeks, I had already binge listened four entire seasons, almost forgetting to take a break every few episodes, because boy, was it an intense ride.
The show has a natural flow to it, with Jonathan Sims narration guiding you into this world full of weird encounters and nightmares, slowly building the setting until you suddenly see yourself caught in a spider web like trance, trying to connect the dots and figure everything out before the Archivist does.
It's a nice worldbuild, A+ narration, incredible voice actors and charismatic characters that you'll love, even when they're pure evil.
And only getting my friends to listen to this amazing piece of storytelling is not enough, so if you're reading my review, please believe in me. I don't recommend things lightly and this show right here deserves all the love, the spookiness and the passion it has been receiving.
