Dr. Edison Tucker is having a very weird life. Not being able to die tends to color things that way. Lucille Kensington is the literary scene’s biggest enigma. That’s just the way she likes it. When the pair find themselves sharing a cabin in the strangest town in America— Jerusalem, OR— they’re prepared for a housemate situation from hell. What they’re not expecting is tidings of a stranger sort: Ed is the antichrist, Lucy her guardian angel, and if they can’t find a way to work together soon, the rapture is set to take first the town, then the world… but neither of them know that yet. Welcome to Jerusalem, OR, where what doesn’t kill you is just another mystery.

Good, but flawed

Good stuff first, the writing for the story and the writing for the character dynamics are great. The actual performances are all very well done, honestly not a bad performance in the series. But it has its problems. The overarcing plot feels like the generic theology plot that most people write when wanting to takle the topic of religion, can't really say I'm a fan of it. Honestly if it was just the two leads hunting cryptids I'd be good with that. Also the sound effects are a bit diffifult to understand. I've had several episodes where I no idea what I was supposed to be visualizing from the sounds I was hearing. A few mehg episodes, maybe three overall, but still absolutely worth listening to and I'm looking forward to whats next.

Confusing Sound Effects

Every romantic relationship in the series relies on sound cues that are VERY hard to pick up on. I didn’t know anything was happening between the two main characters until I read the episode synopsis.

Adore the vibes but would love more descriptives.

I absolutely love the chemistry between the characters and the voice work. All the performances are wonderful and I really enjoyed the development of Ed and Lucy’s relationship. I also absolutely adore the foreshadowing and call backs in the story. As others have said if you like Supernatural, X-files or Good Omens you’ll probably enjoy this. I’ll definitely be continuing this podcast! With this praise however my biggest issue with the series is as follows:

The story would benefit so much from more description. While the sound work can be good, it’s simply not enough to compensate for the consistent absence. This doesn’t become a huge detriment until Dear Listener (Season 2: Episode 9) which discusses many topics one of which being accessibility, neurodivergent experiences and POC representation in media. The episode just ends up unintentionally calling out the issues in the story many of which are brought about by the lacking descriptions of characters, actions and events. Ultimately making it feel extremely hypocritical. I will say I feel there is improvement after this episode on some of these elements. So while I hate to say this, this episode may be best if skipped since plot and character wise it doesn’t progression much if anything.
