For Sci-fi, Thriller, Supernatural and mystery fans. This is a watch
For sci-fi, thriller and mystery fans, and especially fans of the supernatural, this is definitely a great web series with huge potential and an intriguing concept to it.
Each episode, we are introduced to new characters and their unbelievable stories. The show almost has an X-files feel to it, with the strange and mysterious radio station that allows people to openly tell their strange and unimaginable stories to... No one?
It is the type of anthology show where every episode gives you a new story, new characters and no relation to the previous events shown, but every episode gives more clues on the XKWX radio station that no one is listening to and a new attitude to the mysterious Radio Host. From him being over-the-top / sarcastic in pointing out that no is listening to his guest, to a high-standard host reminding them of radio broadcasting standards.
The more I watch the more I feel that the show is building up to something. The radio station that is mentioned in a book, a host that sees more then he let's on, and a need to ask certain questions. I don't want to spoil it, as it will take some of the "OH" factor away from watching the show and getting that feeling of suspense.
One of my favorite aspects, apart from my theory as to what the station and its Host represents, is the music and the sound. I think they are on just another level. Great original scores and amazing ambient sound. 10/10 for sound department.
Acting in the show is also on a high level, each actor brings something different and unique to every episode. My favorite would have to be the host played by Thomas Garner. He does a brilliant job of voice acting to express a variety of emotion without being seen. As well as Rory Dunn who played a brilliant character Peter Kirkmann. Probably my favorite episode so far.
Overall, this is a great show with each episode being original not only in story, but also in tempo, acting and even style, so remember to watch each one.
