Great premise, poorly executed

by Iaresmart on May 15, 2017
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

The story sounds so good, a small town where strange things happen. The problem is there is no continuity. I don't care what happens to any of the characters. Also the songs are so terrible, it pretty much ruined this podcast for me.

Never in all my years has a podcast kept me so absolutely captivated, never have I felt such a range of emotions or felt so invested in the lives and times of the characters created in a fictitious universe comprised of short radio broadcasts. Absolutely phenomenal work, 10/10 recommend.

if you listen to audio drama, you listen to night vale. it's one of the best ones out there and has been since day one. even though it's been running for five years it still has managed to keep its creepy charm and unique format without repeating itself or getting boring

Wonderfully weird, funny, and smart with first rate performances. Like a book you can't put down except you have to because you run out of unplayed episodes and have to wait impatiently for 2 whole weeks searching for other podcasts to fill the void but they don't because nothing can compare so you just sit in an unmoving slump waiting for the pop-up on your phone to tell you the new episode is here and then it's here and you listen to it way to fast and start the whole cycle over again...but seriously listen. You'll love it

I listened to podcasts regularly, and my bf did not. I played him Nightvale ep.1, and now be both listen to podcasts regularly. That is a conversion to a whole genre by dint of NV's marvellousness.

I used to listen to this with my friends in high school. I didn't realize it was still going strong but I'm glad I found it again. Time is weird and this podcast is oddly relatable. Cecil's voice is also a good selling point.

Bizarre and hilarious

I've been listening for some years. The early episodes are truly bizarre and awesome for it. The continually of the seasons can be more of a chore than a joy in more recent seasons but it's at it's best with random occurrences around town

It is poorly written these days. Joseph seems to be running out of ideas. Most things after the novel have not had a good plot. It’s clear that they don’t care about their fan base anymore, as they can’t be bothered to talk for a few minutes or take a selfie with a fan after a show. Erin McKeown did though, and she was great. So much for the message of All Hail. Being good is an action. It’s more than preaching. I really used to love this show, but it has gone downhill, and the cast is changing in a very negative way. Goodbye, Night Vale. You lost a devoted listener.

I'm very into podcasts. And science.

Night Vale was my first podcast and set the bar very high for everything else I've listened to since. I love this world, I love these characters, I LOVE the passionate devotion this creative team has to telling diverse and inclusive stories and how clear it is they are constantly working to learn and do better and put something good into the world. I can't recommend Night Vale nearly enough.

Makes the Familiar Finally Recognizable

by Aalli P on Apr 24, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

Still one of my favorites after all these years. This story is what got me into podcasts and I never looked back. Night Vale's brand of surrealism somehow just hits the spot. It addresses so many important concepts and makes the familar just weird enough to finally be understandable. It makes all of the truly bizarre parts of my life feel normal. I don't now who I'd be if I'd never started listening.

Best Sci-Fi outer world podcast ever

I have listened to this podcast over and over again at night while relaxing. It is such a unique and entertaining podcast. I highly recommend listening to it while trying to wind down. It helps the mind focus on Nightvale and helps you forget your daily stresses!

I can't even remember how I found out about this podcast. But I am glad I did. It's such a delight to listen to each time that I am disappointed when I have to wait so long for the next one. I have begun to even branch out to their other productions.

Night Vale has a way of making the abnormal seem mundane without you ever realizing that the polarity of your reality is slowly reversing, reversing, reversing, in a way that upends your life (but subtly, like a hand you can't see slowly pulling your sandwich out of your grip right before you go to take a bite only to realize that there's nothing there, because hands aren't really parts of the human body but rather human bodies themselves and sandwiches are illegal because of the wheat and wheat byproducts and now you're probably going to jail).

Too much background noise

So tired of podcasts with background music/noise that makes it difficult to hear the narrator. Why why why.

Absolute perfection

by Xander the Sane on Apr 17, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

There is little to say that has not already been said. I mean, in general that is a true statement, as every word formally recognized has already been spoken at least once by someone, somewhere, and those that are not formally recognized and have never been spoken are either worthless or truly precious. Probably both at the same time, really. All that is left unsaid is merely a recombination. A rearrangement of ideas and emotions in an attempt to make someone somewhere godsdamn FEEL something for once in this empty universe. But hey. Nightvale managed to do so for me in such a way that, amidst the terror and loneliness that is our insignificant existence attempting to make a mark that will one day be so utterly forgotten that it might just as well never have happened, made me feel at peace.

It's very entertaining, has great characters, and I love the cast/crew very much because I can really tell that they care about the show and the fans. Really fantastic podcast!

Can't recommend enough

by SultanofSpin on Apr 13, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

Trying to describe WTNV is a task in of itself. The best I can come up with is a Prairie Home Companion on acid. Imagine if the cosmic horrors written by Lovecraft were part of an everyday mundane existence. Imagine a community where nihilism and existentialism became the norm and were met with the mere shrug of the shoulders as the way things are. The delivery and wit is as dry as the town it talks about, and this only adds to the charm. For a town facing crisis, chaos, dragons, otherworldly beings and the daily realization that life is not glamorous, there's so much heart, humanity and a sense of community that puts wholesome representations to shame.

Thank you for coming into my life. You are brillant, witty and funny. You complete me, you make me feel comfortable being in my own skin. I feel true joy whenever I play you, Night Vale. I must watch one of your live shows before I die. - Your lover outside of US

The whole reason I stared getting interested into podcasts is because of this series. I feel that's because at first there was only Cecil. He set the stage of this strange new world and added wit and a special brand of flair to it that made coming back for more episodes inevitable. Now I'm completely hooked and I'm glad I've caught up in excited to see where the series will take all of us in the future!

Almost as perfect as Perfect Carlos' perfect hair. Even the the Glow Cloud, who I heard is doing wonders in PTA, approves of this fantastic podcast. In all honesty, the only person who would not like this would be Steve Carlsburg, who should never be allowed to do anything anyways.
