    S E1: Introducing The Dark Tome: Undertow

    A sample of a new series from our sister podcast, THE DARK TOME.

    UNDERTOW takes place 18 months after the end of Dark Tome Season 2. As the world tries to reconcile the inexplicable occurrences in Simpson Falls, Maine, Simpson Falls native and investigative reporter Tony Baxter, is called on assignment.

    But as Tony starts to dig underneath the surface, he finds the subject of the story is soon on him, and the aftermath of a childhood tragedy he’s never fully reconciled. Tony is faced with an impossible choice, and he and his partner, photojournalist Sonia Proud, won’t be able to leave the town as they arrived.

    Featuring over 40 actors, a full original score and recorded across the United States during lockdown, UNDERTOW is a slow-burn audio-horror thriller in the veins of 1980s Stephen King paperbacks.

Ok. But cannot stand Maria

The story is ok. I’ve listened to better, I’ve listened to worse. But I am barely making it through the rest of the story because i literally cannot stand the character Maria. Seriously, she is the worst character that I’ve ever had to listen to.

Full S1 is a Teaser Ad

Like We’re Alive, this is a post apocalyptic survival drama with full cast and naturalistic sound effects, but minus zombies. The writing seems all over the place ... not quite settling into any of the framing, character, or plot choices. Some of the actors are doing the best they can with the material, but lots of the dialog and character motivation is still a mess. The sound seems uneven between episodes, but also within episodes. Yes, at the time of this review just S1 and the first episodes of S2 & S3 are included here for free, with lots of prompts to sign up for a subscription service. There are also first episodes for a few other shows, all of which are behind the same paywall, and that may help you decide if you want to describe.

Maria = Annoying

I got as far as S2 E1, but the character of Maria was so annoying. The constant whining and screaming was just too much to me.
