Anyway, I'm wrapping up DE 3.4 right now, and while I've certainly got a lot to say about this relisten, I'm gonna shelve all that for now because I just keep thinking about The Further Adventuress.
Because, and I really hope this doesn't read as a hot take, I think it's pretty clear that Molly O'Sullivan was the best part of Dark Eyes and, holy ****, did this range completely and utterly fail to take advantage of that. Like... I think we're really, really due a boxset or two of standalone adventures with Molly, right? Right? Right.
Well, the original Dark Eyes still is one of my favorite ever audio plays.
What came after, due to the dependance on actor availability, just is a bit of a mess.
Molly is a great character. She worked perfectly in the first release.
However, I like Liv a lot more, although I agree that of course Liv started out as a copy replacement for Molly (luckily, she got a completely different spin to the character over the years).
But even with Liv entering the scene and she being one of my favorite companions, Dark Eyes 2-4 is still a mess.
There are ocassional good episodes and awesome scenes, but the majority?
Honestly, I had to listen to 2-4 two times to at least somehow understand what was going on.
I am still not so sure, and I have listened to it I think 4 times by now.
