It was just bad. I’m just going to list it off because it’s easier:
1. The voice acting was bad. Too many times, characters are in a bind, but spend 5 minutes going back and forth “please tell me what we are doing??” “We don’t have time for you to know anything!! Just trust me” “I do trust you but please tell me”...and back to the start...
2. The wolves and the religious people...singing and wolf howling...loudly...
3. The whimpering and whining of the teenage characters. Somehow you grew up in the end of the world and you still act like and emo teen
4. The main characters are so one dimensional, you may as well just call them “bad guy” and “Ooo we tricked you! Bad guy” and “placeholder voice”
5. I think I got into the second season and just started hoping the “Bad guy” would just win and kill everyone. But I think there was a cloud of steam and those pesky kids got away thwarting the evil plans
6. I’m ok with filling in gaps in back story with my own imagination, but how did people from the US military turn into to tribals speaking broken English in less than 10 years?
Just don’t listen. It’s aweful. I’m from Maine and really into end of the world stuff, and audio serials. But this was painful to listen to. The only reason I went as far as I did was I had a cross country drive. By season 2 I deleted it all went back to “We’re Alive”
where’s the rest
pay to see audio drama
A technical issue
Look, I admittedly didn’t listen to it. But that’s mainly because there is a HUGE chunk of it missing.
I’m making this review to let the creators know and hopefully fix it.
