Great show

This show is so great, I just listened to it a second time! Put it in your ears!
Unfortunately there was a super frustrating audio issue with the very last episode (sound cuts out for a second every 30 seconds) and I really hope they can fix the glitch

Best dinner party I got to listen to!

So, so good! Enjoyed it all. Love the theatrics!

Took a while, but turned out pretty good

At the first few episodes, it felt like it dragged. Or maybe it was because Olivia whined about everything. Everything. And at times contradicted herself, “I hate these people, they’re bullies” only then to ‘question’ suspects and bullied them. By the end, the characters became more likable, except for Rodger (screw you Rodger) and the story turned out pretty good.
