So promising

I love the subject matter so I was already sold but the execution lost me a bit. Very nice world building and production although the acting wasn’t great. We follow the main character for most of it but they aren’t interesting enough to want to follow along with. The plot was also oddly paced but I hope it gets better once they hit their stride.

Literally one of the worst podcasts I have ever listened to

There is no area where this podcast doesn't fail. The acting is staggeringly bad - it's like they got some high school sophomores who have been in drama class for a week and asked them to voice act. The characters were two-dimensional in the extreme. Heck, calling them "characters" is being overly generous - they're caricatures at *best*. And the plot? Unimginative, derivative, and utterly predictable.

Actually, there was ONE redeeming quality to it - it was short. Not to say that I don't consider those three hours time I'll never get back, but at least it was ONLY three hours.

Great premise, lackluster delivery

I feel Mermaids of Merrow’s Cove is unfortunately another example of a great premise that doesn’t pan out; I like the ideas and motifs behind this, but the voice acting and script is a little lacking for me. During important scenes I had some trouble understanding who was talking because, aside from the Irish character, everyone else has very nondescript voices and deliveries. It also suffers from very weird pacing; it’s only 6 episodes so they basically kick everything into high gear immediately in episode 3 and it feels very jarring. I still completed it (mostly because it’s only 3 hours all things considered), so I’d say to give it a try to see if this tickles your fancy. Also on a side note, every time a character pronounces “merrow” as “murroh” I die a little inside.
