Excellent!

There's not much for me to nitpick here. Any criticism I have would be just that, minor problems that don't affect my enjoyment of the show. This show is an improvised sci-fi podcast from the creators of Alba Salix (which I admittedly haven't listened to), but these actors are incredibly talented. It's pretty dark and actually funny, which is more than I can say for some "comedy" podcasts I've heard (both fiction and non-fiction). When it DOES get dramatic, it never feels abrupt or unearned. The sound design really sets the scene--I do wish there'd be a little more happening, but to be fair, they add in the sound effects that heighten what the actors are doing. Again, that's a nitpick. This show is quality, and they take the time to give content warnings in the episode descriptions, which is lovely. My only criticism of this is that I wish they'd give specific timestamps so people can skip parts that are distressing. And the companion series, the interactive email thing where you "play the alien," is a wonderful prequel to the show (so far, anyway). This show is high quality, funny, dark without being 'edgy,' well-acted, and it's all the more impressive because the improvisers are well trained. I want to hear more of the captain!!
