Issy Hi ,

Amazing!

I know I only gave it 4 stars, but this is a truly amazing podcast. The casts dedication makes it so that I often forget it’s not scripted, and I’ve listened to many improv shows before. The only thing that is slowing down the excitement for me (and it may just be that I haven’t listened properly) is that they expect us to understand some things about this new world they have created, and there seem to be some gaps in between episodes where things aren’t properly explained. Otherwise, this is a brilliant, interesting, funny show!

Great podcast

I’m on episode three of the first series, which is a little early to leave a review for me. This is my first time listening to an improvised series so I’m not used to it (star detracted 🙁).

The pauses between words while the actors think up what they’re going to say always gives a sense of awkwardness between the characters (which is always entertaining).

I really love Beatrix’s hilarious positivity even when things are going really badly.
(Wish she’d stop dying though 😢)

Improvised darkish sci-fi. diamondsparkle1

Now into Season 3 of this improvised sci-fi and have enjoyed the characters’ progression, nice voice acting and theme music. Talented improvisers who interact with other so well, Really enjoy the show.
