Fantastic

Really enjoying the story and seeing what direction it will take (Other than Down!)
Contrary to other reviews, I really enjoy Charlie’s character and his abrasive nature. Thanks for producing!

Worth a listen

I really liked the story but the acting is unbelievable- very forced - and episodes are too short when you’re waiting a week to hear it - still worth a listen though.
