Time Travel Amazingness

This is one of the best audio dramas I’ve EVER heard. Not much else to say, listen to it.

Very good

Very enjoyable and very strong first season. Enjoyed immensely. Have ups & downs in season 2. It got weird when like 6 women were talking & they all sounded pretty much the same. Other than that, all good.

OK

Like so many podcasts, it got off to a good start ( Other than the lead time travel character spoiling the future at every possible opportunity. ) then waned somewhat. The writing can be pretty clever and they tackle a complicated plot. But, as many people have noted, many of the characters sound too much alike - and this isn't necessary in this day of many talented voice actors being around. Also, -- please please please understand that I welcome diversity in drama -- but for a piece set in 1953 it's a bit much to have a room with 6 people and like 5 of them be openly LGBTQIA. Last but not least, the actors are talented but I think it's the direction. Expressing emotion is more than speaking as rapidly as possible or...on the...other hand...putting excessive...pauses... in every...sentence. I'm going to recommend you try it, but just read both the negative and positive reviews and go in knowing that there are some annoyances. Edit to add: I also want to agree with a previois reviewer. There are some episodes where so much of the time is simply people harshly arguing. I listen to audio dramas to be entertainted, and that includes drama, sci-fi, or horror, so it's not all supposed to be flowing brooks and tweeting bird sounds, but to just listen to people argue for 15 or 20 minutes, it's just not a pleasant experience.
