In the first episode of Tanis, our host, Nic Silver, wonders if the Internet age might contain one last great mystery, an ancient myth known as “Tanis.” His exploration into the enigmatic Tanis begins by asking the seemingly simple question, what is it? The answers, he soon discovers, are far more complicated.

it pisses me off how you go ages with nothing new... to finally start posting SOMETHING... only for it to effectively be unresolved, and even more so than the season before. i get it's ment to be a mystery, but how about TRYING to solve some of it before you post yet another co*ktease of a cliffhanger. x _x .

This season starts slower than previous seasons, but this is TANIS, so of course it picks back up and is as great as always.

First two seasons were good but 3-5 seems like their running out of material. Shouldn't take 5 seasons to solve Tanis. Too many "bonus" episodes of callers giving their opinions??? Nick always cuts away when things finally get interesting. Having said that, I'm too hooked on the characters to not finish it.

Can anyone tell me what is going on. I've completely lost the thread. Not sure if I'm listening to Tanis or The Last Picture Show at times. Mission creep.

I wish the partial manuscript Pacifica had less pages. It completely throws my concentration off. I've no idea where we are now. Rapidly loosing interest.

Some day, Tanis will be talked about as either the audio format's The Matrix, or the audio format's LOST. In other words... a perfectly flawless allegory, or an esoteric mess.
