There’s not a single production weakness in Marsfall, which is why it’s such a powerful show, & why the scope of what it can do is incredibly vast! Eric, Dan, Sam, Brian, & the entire cast & crew have such a strong vision & the deft hands necessary to carry it out. Marsfall expands what science fiction can be — & not just in audio fiction. If sci-fi adventure or just a great ensemble drama is your thing, give this one shot, & I promise you’ll be hooked.
Just getting started
I just started listening first 2 episodes I am hooked amazing keep it coming
Worst acting and writing ever.
(TLDR: for the love of god save yourself the time and listed to “Escaping Denver” instead. Acting and story is much better)
I listened to almost an entire season thinking I was missing something because it was reviewed highly. But no, it was like listening to child actors who over act by constantly whining and horrible attempts at sarcasm and humor. The writing is so disjointed and awkward, I’m not sure Oscar winning actors could’ve helped. Even if you can suspend reality enough knowing it’s not totally factual, which is fine, I wasn’t expecting Neil deGrasse Tyson level, it’s impossible to dismiss the writing and acting. I tried comparing it to some 1950s radio cheesy show, but it was truly painful to hear. No one traveling internationally would sound or speak like this, ever. With better writing and actors, it may have been better because the premise was good.
