The only reason I got through the entire show was the promise that it would get better. It did not. If you want to hear Will Patton say “lanky fellow” about 200 times this is the podcast for you. The writing is just that bad. I don’t want to trash on something that so many people like, but I find no redeemable qualities in this podcast. It starts with a love story between two characters that are as dull as dirt. It seems like they add sex to add some dimension to this weak romance but eventually you just end up with some awkward groaning and two characters that are still dull as dirt. The characters are unlikable from the start and when things start going bad you’ll have no connection and no desire for them to survive. To save you some time I’m going to add a short synopsis of the story, so, SPOILER ALERT The love story takes about four episodes with the only scary thing being a nightmare were Ruby, the pale girl (as it is so laboriously repeated), has white hair growing out of her mouth and hands. Walter, the lanky fellow, has some awkward and snobbishly eloquent conversations with Ruby. They have sex. Time skips and they go to her fathers house. Walter snoops a little they have some more sex and Ruby tells the story of an arsonist in the woods and weird fingerprints in her bedroom. They go to bed and a red eyed albino kidnaps them. They are tied up in a cave and she eats weird fruit. She turns into a monster, her dad frees Walter, Walter gets away from a bunch of crab monsters like Ruby, but in the hospital the albino and the crab monsters show up. Walter kills himself so he doesn’t turn into a monster. Yeah, everyone dies and I think most people will be glad this crap fest ends like that.
