Starts off good
...but then the flaws of PNS bloom in abundunce. However it's the best of their production, i think.
This podcast is a beautifully crafted work, gripping both the first time and in the follow ups. It created a mystery that riots deadly in fears anyone can relate to - creepy children, sounds where there should be none, uncanny valley factor and also loss of a loved one, uncertainty in your own mind's ability to interpret the world around you.
And the characters. Every single one is as real as it can be - a bit annoying at one time, brilliant and courageous at the other.
