    Before murderous farmers, man-eating cats, and the Shadow in the Dark Woods, there was Gary.

Miss Hijinx ,

Quirky

A unique & kooky little show.

An ‘end of life’ themed series that contains a collection of unusual back stories of deceased individuals.

Though the performances are from talented actors , I found it a little hard to follow at times. I feel this show would benefit from more structure especially as it tries to launch season 2. There is potential.

I did however appreciate the interesting premise. An alternative to the many horror themed podcasts that are so ubiquitous.

If you enjoyed other audio dramas such as :

Conversations from the Abyss

The Long Hallway

The Dog is Dead

Storage Papers

The Grey Rooms

I believe you might like this show !

Rating 6.4/ 10 with potential to improve
