EASILY in my top five favourite podcasts. Amazingly done!

Im usually a very picky person when it comes to podcasts, specifically horror and sci-fi, but this one ticks ALL the boxes.

Archive 81 has a fleshed out universe with characters that are flawed but loveable, great voice acting and sound design, with an interesting almost arg feel to it.

I honestly have no idea what people are talking about when they say they hated the 2nd season, if anything the second season was even better than the first as it allowed the characters to develop and interact more with each other, and this is continued in the 3rd season with an even bigger increase in world building!

I felt like that iasip pepe silvia meme with this one whenever a character or event would be mentioned from a previous tape, and the satisfaction I got from finally being able to connect new information to past lore was immense!!

I highly recommend everyone listen to this one, Archive 81 is criminally underrated.

First Season was great, second season not so good

First season was great. Second season started okay, but Cynthia is annoying AF!!!! Can not stand her voice and her dialogue is so “look at me I’m so cool because I swear every second word!”
Not interesting and annoying!!!
Could’ve been much better.

Disappointing

Ok I’m coming from watching the new Netflix show. I listened to the Black Tapes and loves every minute and I’m a NoSleep subscriber since the beginning, but what was so great about the show (amazing sound design and music, excellent art and presentation, good casting and acting, dropping the pointless romantic drops from the podcast) is missing from this podcast when coming from it in reverse and all the critics of the show that cite missing weird elements from the podcast aren’t all that well fleshed out or taken seriously enough. The show had its faults (too much swearing!!! One episode of Dan’s side that could have been dropped. The terrible demon cgi, or even showing a demon at all! It’s the worst part of the story telling) but it was way more interesting than the podcast. Good for the creators to get a payday, seriously good for you. I hope you are both successful. But the show and podcast should be completely separate, like not even sharing the same name. Back to my review. To me this is a 3 star. The desperate reaching out to listeners to try and draw people in is tired. The story jumps around too much and character reactions are unexpected because it feels like there should be 2 eps in between to flesh things out. I’m mid season 2 and honestly if the show goes to the “other place” that’s acted out here, it’s not for me. Way too theater play acting for me. Like the Magnus Tapes, there’s a limit to the amount of non-stop acted stress that works in 10-15 minute episodes. For the rest of you 5 star reviews, enjoy. This is just not for me or someone looking for a more corporate and weird Black Tapes.
