"The dialogue in Bridgwater just isn’t that captivating. The conversations sound like they were copied/pasted into each script. Did Mankhe and Shippen succeed with their original intention to create an immersive, enrapturing plot that made you believe in something more beyond the veil? Kind of. Narrators are useful guides in audio fiction. Without it, it feels like we are groping in the back of a cave, in the middle of the night, in the dead of an Icelandic winter: It’s dark, and we don’t know where we are going."

"What makes Bridgewater so impactful, besides the amazing voice acting and thrilling plot, is the fact that it is set in a real place...It’s an enchanting podcast, and you won’t have to go through a tantalising one-week wait after each episode ends with a cliffhanger because all ten episodes that comprise the first season are out."

"I was hooked and for 10 minutes I had done nothing but stare at my laptop screen and had forgotten that I actually had work to do. It’s as good as it sounds and it has a stellar cast too – who are particularly appealing if you are a fan of any of following- Supernatural, Teen Wolf, Castle or Star Trek."

"The subtle details in the audio had me turning my head left and right. I was thinking my cat was right there making a ruckus, when she was in the other room. The subtle world building coasts us through the smooth exposition, introducing a stellar panorama of characters. The pull of show is exciting, dragging you into a complete picture and not letting go until the eerie warm narration of Mahnke pulls you back to reality."

"An entertaining story, but the dialogue & flow is a bit stunted. The conversations between characters don't feel natural (or even supernatural). The stereo sound is well produced, but that seems to be at the expense of other areas of the production that feel a bit thrown in there (example for the "voices that don't sound entirely human", they sound entirely human as if recorded as an after thought and just added in). That being said, it was still reasonably enjoyable."
