I was getting my weekly escapepod fix and Steve mentioned a new project, Stranger Things, a sort of podcast twilight zone series. I downloaded their premiere episode, which was adapted from a short story by Scott Sigler, and was really impressed. It was a good story, well acted and the special effects were really impressive. They had decided to postpone the launch of the podcast to make this the premiere episode and I’m glad they did. They recently released the second episode (actually two in one) and, while I’d have stuck with them, i wasn’t nearly so impressed with these episodes.
That said, what they’re doing is incredibly brave and must be a huge amount of work, and they deserve credit for that. I’m excited to see what comes out next month.
