hiramhibbard ,

Great acting, (confusing) ending falls flat

The first couple episodes are great and really pull you in, making you feel like you’re in that cab with Rae. However, once the mystery is gone it gets pretty boring. The last episode especially as it relies far too heavily on sound effects (in true Qcode form), with few clues as to what’s actually happening.

JohnnyStrife ,

Top notch production

Great acting and sound design.

crsrone ,

Too much garbage, too little storyline

Neat story idea, but each episode has roughly 10 mins of q code promotional ads and show production credits per 25 minute episode. More substance, less fluff please!
