"Quickly binged S1 of this show and I loved it, especially the AI / robot GeoFFRy. After finishing S2 I´m like WOW the music, sound effects, acting - I'm blown away! The story also has so many layers and interesting themes, it's quite philosophical at times. Absolutely a new favorite of mine! And GeoFFRy is by far the AI with the most scary laughter ever. Don´t miss this show!"

"The Orphans starts with the familiar concept of a group of people waking up with amnesia in a dangerous environment. However, this story succeeds where others often fail. There are actual answers for all the weird things going on! The acting is great, the sound design is fantastic, but the story is what kept bringing me back for more."

"An imaginative, intelligent and immersive science fiction saga. The Orphans has created a universe that is slowly revealed over the course of the three seasons and it keeps you desperately curious at all times. Combined with some excellent cinematic sound design, this is an essential listen for any science fiction listener "
