      Audience Reviews for Limetown: Season 1

      • Jun 24, 2023
        The key to this series lies in it's tone, and it's ability to create tension through well-crafted cliffhangers. The story has enough intrigue to draw you in, and the subtle and moody performance of Biel makes this worth a view.

        As a fan of the podcast (season 1 anyway; we all can collectively agree that season 2 is disappointing), I am intimidated by all the negative reviews floating around. So, here am I, in 2023, watching Limetown when I have forgotten almost everything about the podcast. Except the feeling that I very much love the podcast. When things are adapted onto screen, whether from books, podcasts or anything, the original fans seem to be disappointed in one way or another. And here I am, a fan of the original material, so I feel like nitpicking it to its bones. So, if you have no idea at all about the original podcast, here is the brief description of the plot. The story follows our main character, Lia Haddock (played by Jessica Biel), an investigative journalist at American Public Radio, in searching the truth behind the disappearance of three hundred men, women, and children from a research facility settlement called ‘Limetown'. The series weaves the story between Lia interviewing the survivors from ‘Limetown' and past flashbacks of these survivors. The season starts out fine, and interesting enough. Then, interesting choices are made. It is an artistic choice to portray Lia as this dogged nervous mess and I don't know how to feel about it. I prefer the bold confident journalist she is meant to be in the podcast, and these changes on screen do not add to the story in anyway. It just makes her forgettable just like all other messed up female protagonists in mystery stories. Does this make her more humane or relatable, and enhance the story? I doubt that. This story is now just about a woman with an obsession who would do anything to satisfy it, not about a journalist in search of truth. And it is a ten episodes season, albeit 30 minutes episodes. That means, they either have to stretch the plot from 6 episodes of the podcast, or add additional subplots to the story. I believe this case is mostly the former; I could describe some episodes with just one event. That is how much plot in these filler episodes. Maybe the podcast ruins it for me. On it own, the tv series would not have much audience because although the story features an intriguing mystery, I don't think it is enough to set itself part from many mysterious tv series released almost everyday. The actors are decent, and portray the characters well. The setting is great and can be chilling at times. But there is not much plot or character development or anything to last an impression on the viewer at the end. It makes such an entertaining podcast, probably because of its fake documentary style it can achieve as an audio media. However, produced as a tv show, the script seems to drag on and be boring at times. I would still totally recommend the podcast; it is chilling, eerie and atmospheric. And this show is very redundant if you have listened to the podcast. But if you cannot listen to the podcast and still want to know how the story goes, maybe watch it as a last resort.

        I love the plot and l love the characters.In the scene with first Survivor , she described what happened to her as an intriguing memory. I think the writing and the details are suspenseful .

        Jessica Biel's performance is incredible. Lots of twists and turns across episodes. I love a good mystery!

        More compelling than I expected, and well paced, I was hoping there'd be a second season... but even this partial mystery ride was definitely worth the time.
      • Jan 14, 2021
        This show gave me tons of suspense and mystery in Season 1, leaving a lot to be discovered. Just when you think you know..... you quickly find out that you're literally miles away from the truth. So much was revealed in Season 1 that I worry Season 2 will not be as mysterious. We shall see. Overall, solid cast/casting. Jessica Biel shines bright in Limetown.

        Brilliant. It keeps the suspense through all 10 episodes. I need its second season.
