“The Hyacinth Disaster doesn’t even feel scripted. The voice acting is seamless. The script is set up incredibly well. You could be actually listening in on the tapes from a lost spaceship. The way the cast meshes, they sound like a crew who have been together for a long time. You can almost hear the in-jokes as they talk to each other under their lines.
The sound mixing is also very good.” – Carolyn Ducker – Geek Girl Authority
