TrentC Love the old school green screen PC’s and lack of phones. Josh and Antonio may have covered this (I’m behind in my listening). The show’s production values and incidental scenery gave me a part of that old Lost vibe with the 70’s research stations. GeekFurious 1. I LOVED this show. Probably my favorite Netflix creation so far. 2. As an Icelander… there was nothing more painful than listening to them speak Icelandic. To give you an example of how bad it was, imagine someone from another country, who does not speak English, being given a phonetic English line like, “We should talk to the United Nations,” and pronouncing it like “wu shoe taw teeh too untid neeshoon.” That’s still closer to what it should sound like than ANYTHING Hill said in Icelandic. Otherwise, loved how weird it was… loved all the perspectives.
