"(Season 3) Season three is all about the tricksters, but it also stands out from its predecessors in another way. Most of the creatures featured in season three tend to be of the chattier variety. This is very much by design. Angela Yih has said that there’s only so many times you can recycle the roar and snarl sound-effects before they get old. Jessica provides a foil to Alina. In doing so, Jessica highlights a major theme of this season. In the immortal words of John Lennon, you get by with a little help from your friends. We get to learn a bit more about Drew and Jun’s backstories. I was pleasantly surprised that we got an entire episode devoted to Mirai’s adventures in Japan. I had been hoping we might get something like this at some point. The whole power of friendship trope might be a bit cliché. But you know what? This season of Residents of Proserpina Park pulled it off really well. …"

"(Season 3)...season three has been making a subtle jump that makes my critic’s heart go pitter-patter...this podcast is pretty marathon-able, and you can tell the care that every member of this team has for this story. From the start, I could see the characters as they make their way through the park, and feel the mystery and enchantment in every moment. I also want to add that this podcast has done a great job of providing transcripts for every episode on its website."

"The show manages to hook you with the lessons while keeping you engaged with the season-long storyline about Alina and Sam. Residents of Proserpina Park balances the thought-provoking with the gut-wrenching. You’ll come for the creatures, but stay for the drama between characters. Overall, the first 10 episodes of Proserpina Park are a great introduction to this world. While having mythical creatures in it, it doesn’t detract from the human element that stories need to have in order to resonate."

"(Season 2) Season two becomes full-on serialized. One episode directly leads into the next. We also get a closer look at some of the less than friendly residents of the park. Season two of Residents of Proserpina Park is absolutely fantastic. It both met and exceeded the standards set by season one. …"

"(Season 1) I'd argue that, in many ways, Residents of Proserpina Park is an edutainment show. It sets out to teach listeners about different mythological creatures in a fun and entertaining way. Residents of Proserpina Park is a fun and entertains way to learn about creatures from across World Mythology. Season one was absolutely amazing...so season one is easily bingeable...And I would strongly advise you to do so as quickly as possible if you haven't already."
