Very enjoyable

I didn’t know what to expect with this podcast and the gothic tagline definitely sparked my attention. I love any story about a small town that has secrets.

I’ve enjoyed the small “Easter eggs” throughout the series. A bit of dialogue said in passing that makes you pause and think of its possible implications in the overall timeline/plot.

The relationships between the characters is fraught at times and the voice actors convey the tension well.

I only gave it 4 stars due to a complaint others have had. It is pretty difficult to catch everything when I’m streaming it through my car’s speakers. Even at max volume. Looking forward to season 2!

Tried and Done

I really tried to like this podcast mainly because I love gothic and gloomy fiction. The characters are unlikeable and the conversations annoying at best. I get enough sarcasm and cynicism without listening to it during my downtime. The most intriguing character is a teenage boy with a mysterious non-home. I kept listening mainly to find out where he went at night-is he a changling or something? But Lilly and Abby are terrible characters and I'll be honest here, the story resorts to 3-4 lesbian relationships for a draw from that pool of listeners. Really? In a tiny town in the middle of nowhere, the situation and genders are unbelievable. Done.
