Disappointing but has gem moments

By AlChang123 - Sep 18 2018

The sound production is fantastic and some of the writing is wonderful (story at end of Episode 1, for example). I love the narrator’s voice and the general BioShocky feel of the music. I thought the alternate-universe inventions and creatures were charming. However, I’m on Episode 3 and am largely unimpressed in the plot. The story in Episode 2 totally lost my interest and I had to force myself to listen to it all. I was hoping for more action per episode, but even removing that critique, I find the main character flat and uninteresting. Typical underdog-type character hoping and dreaming for more. The other characters so far are well voice acted, but I also don’t care about them. The circus leader is predictably indignant and assertive while the French administrator is just some voice calling out nonstop instructions. I am a HUGE FAN of Welcome to Night Vale, which is a masterpiece. The Orbiting Human Circus is not at all on the same level.
