If Tennessee Williams had ever seen fit to write about a group of misfits who crashed their space craft on a hostile alien planet, it would probably have been an awful lot like "The Orphans." With a tight script, exciting plot, terrific cast, wonderful sound effects, and beautiful musical score, this podcast epitomizes that magic that can only be created when a group of dedicated people truly love the story they are telling. This tale twists and turns in so many unexpected directions, always testing and redefining the characters, and yet never straying from it's chilling and dark main theme. A taught space age thriller at its very best, there is only one thing in this epic saga of futuristic double-crosses that is certain: if you're looking for a good story, "The Orphans" will never disappoint!

An interesting exploration into a new world that wants to kill them, and many other mystery's they find, including a Dome. Added on top is the Social building of the characters, as they discover they only have knowledge from the 5 minute warning before cashing on the planet. You listen how they discover their roles.
