Almost done with season 1 spoilers

So I can’t speak to the other seasons yet. Season 1 is excellent...the characters and the premise is great except....the narrator guy. The guy who’s supposedly doing the podcast/thesis. He’s so annoying and I don’t understand why he’s freaking out so much about these people from so long ago. Like crying and stuff? It’s just so over the top. I could do without that whole part of the storyline and just stick to the ship. I usually skip ahead when it cuts to him talking cause it just makes me cringe. Idk maybe it’s just bad acting. But the ship, and the characters on the ship, all their stories...so awesome and original! I love it! I love the idea of a malevolent force on this ship too but I’ve gotta say I’m not a fan of there being an actual monster. I crack up whenever I hear it speak. It’s just ridiculous and over the top for me. I thought keeping it as an unexplained force...maybe haunting or possession would’ve been a lot better in my opinion. But the stuff I’ve mentioned shouldn’t deter you from listening because overall it really is fantastic.

Love it!

A friend suggested I try this podcast after I talked at length about wanting more inclusive horror content, and I wasn't disappointed!

I haven't started season 2 yet but I was thrilled to hear a polyamorous relationship represented in the first season, and an asexual character (the in-character excitement for it was really charming, too) - it's not often I find content that appeals to the genres I'm interested in while also creating a world where being lgbtqia+ is handled casually, or in a way that indicates some experience with it.

I was already eager to delve in to the second season - western *and* lgbt? it's everything I've ever wanted - but I'm especially excited after seeing some of the other reviews for it. :) It's difficult to dig through podcasts trying to find something that represents my identity and the identities of my friends in genres we love. Definitely going to recommend to them!

Hhmmm

I started on Blackchapel. 1st episode first impression was super positive. Really exciting. I think the voice acting is good, sound design and effects are good, the characters are somewhat interesting and tbh I got sucked in right away. The lesbian town was my first indicator that something might be wrong.
Now listen, don’t even try to say I’m some gay/women hating nazi, ok. I was happy when gay marriage was passed here in the US and to say I’m 100% straight is not exactly accurate, and I also love a good strong female character. Especially a BA gunslinging female character.
That said, as has been said here in the reviews before, the progressive message hits like a train. Homosexuality was not widely accepted in the time this seems to be portrayed in, and sure this is fiction, but still. And by episode four of Blackchapel, the all women town is being touted as some weird communist man hating paradise. And the male characters have repeatedly been scolded like dogs for their male ways.
Now one might suggest I’m just being a weenie, maybe I’m too deep into the culture war politics, but I’m sorry if, to a filthy disgusting colonializing monsterous cis white male, this is just more of the same uber far lefty progressive stuff I can’t get away from.
I will persist and hopefully this stuff calms down in the latest episodes, but unfortunately I shall not hold my breath.
