RATING
Great show! Every episode keeps you engaged and wanting to know more. Besides the wonderfully written story, the voice actor for Nolira does a great job of keeping me pulled into this world.
An amazing deep and layered fiction podcast. Requiring the listener to listen to the top level story that is happening now, while frequently dipping back into memories and events with characters who are not always fully explained. The story is also happening in a world not entirely populated with accents from one narrow region of the world. Relying the listener tolerating ambiguity at various degrees, because when it transition between scenes there is no heavy exposition or a gong and announcer saying now we are at . . . For me it is totally paying off.
Just not for me....
I must admit that Season 2 of VAST has totally blown me away! S1 was great, but I really like the more mystery and added characters in the new season. This gives the story a depth and promise of so much more to come and I can´t wait to find out! This entire production oozes quality and it´s a truly impressive cast and crew, counting a lot of my favorite actors and creators. A special kudos to the way the commercials are presented: That´s really clever, and I almost didn´t realize it actually was commercials until several seconds in!
A really good listen. Something I will have to revisit as well, because there was so much I am sure I missed things the first time through.
VAST HorizonThanks Raymond! We'll be back with season 2 next month as well!
This one will surprise you! While the story of a woman trapped aboard an abandoned ship might seem like the usual sci-fi-horror fare, there is a deep story of political intrigue, galactic world-building, and familial ties lying just underneath. Definitely a slow-burn worth settling into.
VAST HorizonWe're glad that you're really enjoying the layers! It makes us more confident in our decisions for Season 2.
I loved every minute of it. At some points literally holding my breath in anticipation. I hope to hear more.
Excellent soundscapes, thrilling story telling. I listened to each episode with baited breath, hoping beyond hope that Nolira would make it through the ship alive. I love me a good scifi and this is a great one!
This show is centered around one woman’s struggle to survive alone in the middle of vast space. This by itself impressed me because making a plot with just one person is difficult to keep interesting. The writer(s) overcome this challenge by including flashbacks and giving Nolira an AI to talk to. The voice actor for the AI did a great job!
This story is a bit tough to get into at first but the foley and background sounds are epic.
Hits you like a ton of bricks. It made me feel things I have never felt watching a movie. Vast Horizon does what the best audio dramas do - pull you in and keep you captive. The fear and discomfort are real.
After the first maybe 3 or 4 episodes I started wondering if there is a point to this story. Then a couple episodes later I still couldn't figure it out. It's basically about a woman waking up on a spaceship that has gone through some catastrophic event, with her seemingly being the only survivor. She then goes (literally) from A to B, then to C, then to D, and so on. The only other elements are various obstacles on the way there, and some flashbacks to her previous life that may or may not relate to her current situation. Oh and there are also random interjections in Chinese for no apparent reason. They certainly don't make the main character more believable or relatable. Seriously, this is really messy writing.
