We’re Alive

I finally finished We’re Alive (werealive.com) and I can say unequivocally it’s the best long-form audio theater I’ve ever heard.

It’s more like a novel than a TV show. It assumes you’re invested and takes its time developing characters and such, rather than trying to thrill you every episode. This is no Walking Dead – this is more like Breaking Bad – they don’t make it up as they go, they had a story written, ready to tell, and told it in four seasons of twelve hour-long chapters each divided into three convenient twenty-minute episodes.
Very impressive cast, acting, production values, writing, everything. 
Second Shift (my previous all-time favorite serial drama) was a lot of fun but We’re Alive is everything I wish all modern audio theater was.
