Welcome to Your Daily Nerd Thing. Our Alice Isn’t Dead week continues with a look at the second episode Alice. After the first episode I thought who Alice was might continue to be a mystery hanging over the series or at least the first season. But instead the narrator tells the audience about Alice in the very next episode. This was the episode that really hooked me into the series but not because of Alice. It was because of Charlatan.
In between talking about Alice the narrator gets caught in some kind of dimensional loop driving through the town of Charlatan over and over again. We have no idea what is going on in Charlatan and once she escapes it we never hear about it again. But of all the strange encounters the main character goes through during this show, Charlatan is the one I find the most interesting and moving.
