Such a good show!

A much needed escape from reality. I can’t wait for more!!!

Highly Recommend

I LOVE this show. It combines true crime, comedy, and Shakespeare. And awesome queer representation!!! Seriously, what else are you looking for?
It is at times so funny—— and other times so heart wrenching. It is cleverly written, and well executed. It was my first dive into audio fiction, and although I’ve since listened to a lot of other shows, this is the only one I listen to over and over. I love Bea and Brenda. Rosalind is an icon. And Lorena Christopher is just too personally relatable, but I’m ok with the call out.
This is a great show!!!!!

A Lot To Like

S2 of Arden makes some choices that leave the show harder to follow than I can fully enjoy. Two of the actors have very similar sounding voices and mannerisms ... they both also pull similar fake voices, so it’s really hard to follow which of the two is speaking. Also, there’s a “retelling” framework introduced a few episodes in that makes following the thread of the plot a little harder. Both these confusions are on top of the bickering (often not important to plot or ... after a point ... character) that takes a lot of energy to follow. It’s also on top of all the silly side story distractions in the Wheyface world building. I’ve tried listening multiple ways and am still struggling to piece together what is actually a pretty familiar plot. If I was the kind of person who could miss words and ideas without having to relisten to catch them, or didn’t care who said what or if it was important as long as it was sort of amusing I know I’d like it more. But for me it feels like a lot of work for not a lot of reward. Plus, all the bickering is greatly tedious and abrasive to me.
