S2 is very cryptic
Season 1 is so efficiently written, acted, and produced. Not a sound or moment is wasted. Season 1 has a single narrator operating in compressed time and space, but the episodes still feel giant. So many great choices made on every level to create the maximum impact. I absolutely cannot wait for Season 2. Updated: Season 2 is cryptic enough that the wonderful efficient clarity of S1 is undone. New voices are introduced, with great additional actors, but mostly the underlying writing is one note: frustrated incoherence. I suspect this show might be suffering a bit from having a single writer for what could be a wonderful collection of voices. This also leaves the listener hanging uncomfortably after S2. In terms of listener investment, two seasons is enough time to have earned some more advancement of the plot than is offered here. We are for sure gathering an interesting assortment of questions, and a couple stellar new characters, but there’s currently no assurance any questions will ever be answered. Will S3 bring even more unanswered questions? Some Audio Dramas live in this Soap Opera Zone where all plot lines dangle for seemingly ever, gathering more conflict and complexity, but not offering the listener resolution(s) to feel the plot is progressing. I’d love to know more about why these choices have been made and how the creators are hoping the audience responds to this setup.

And not your typical space story. The episodes are short and just told in the point of view of 1 man who you can’t help but fall in love with. He’s so genuinely sweet and you just want to move planets to help him. The voice actor has a personable voice that is also enjoyable on the ears. Dying to...Read full review »
