Critic Reviews for Mythic Quest: Raven's Banquet Season 1

All Critics (37) | Top Critics (12)

It's a smart, energetic series that contains what may be the most important element in a successful comedy: an alchemical ensemble of characters, each one as curious and distinct as the next.

Feb 6, 2020 | Full Review…

It's not consistent, but it's already trending in the right direction in a story that, unlikely It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, features characters who can and should grow.

Feb 5, 2020 | Full Review…

The more interesting part of Mythic Quest comes when it's not even trying for laughs... In the meantime, there's enough in Mythic Quest to suggest this group has comic life beyond Paddy's Pub.

Feb 5, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

In taking on the complex, under-examined world of video gaming, the creative team gave themselves a rich area in which their wild, clever, selfish characters can bounce around unlike any other currently on TV.

Feb 4, 2020 | Full Review…

The series dives into megalomania and workplace chaos with eccentric, frenzied energy.

Jan 31, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Think of it as a less bro-y counterpart to Silicon Valley, or one of Community's more video-game-obsessed episodes stretched to series length. It's even got Danny Pudi. Only, it comes from the creators of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

Dec 30, 2020 | Full Review…

The comedy of the year. Apple TV+'s first original comedy production Mythic Quest: Raven's Banquet is amazing. A tv show that, if it were on another more commercial platform like Netflix, would be on everyone's lips. [Full review in Spanish]

Sep 24, 2020 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

A must watch workplace comedy for those that love to game, and even those that don't. Gamers will especially enjoy all the nods to the gaming world.

May 30, 2020 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Mythic Quest tries to use the workplace comedy blueprint to tell its story, but simply plugging in different characters and a modern setting into a classic formula doesn't always work out for the best.

Feb 4, 2020 | Full Review…

Take out the occasional swear word and add in a laugh track, and most episodes of Mythic Quest could pass for a CBS sitcom.

Feb 3, 2020 | Full Review…

It's the common sense to make jokes that gamers would make about games rather than jokes that non-gamers would make about gamers that keeps Mythic Quest harmonious.

Jan 31, 2020 | Rating: 75/100 | Full Review…

Buoyed by its incredible cast and clever writing, Mythic Quest finds itself in the unique opportunity of being an exciting addition on Apple's platform.

Audience Reviews for Mythic Quest: Raven's Banquet: Season 1

  • 2d ago
    Wasted talent playing to the cheap seats from writers and actors that could do so much more if they bothered to write smart comedy instead of a bumbling, exaggerated comedy of manners while cruelly wasting Danny Pudi's comedic timing as an indifferent money man. Painful all around. Except F. Murray Abraham. He's always great.

    It's like 40 year old virgin meets The Office meets Always Sunny meets WoW
  • Feb 15, 2021
    It's got the humorous strength that It's Always Sunny has but in a more polished format. Episode 5 made me love this show.
  • Jan 30, 2021
    This show is awful. A very unfunny and exaggerated characterization of the game industry. It would have some value if it also painted a picture of what is good and bad about the industry, but it doesn't. Instead, it seems like the show was written by some boomer who thinks video games are ridiculous. It's like they held a focus group that included parents of gamers, streamers, and devs and made a show based on their account of what they think the industry would be like.

    All the pieces fit together. Very talented group and very sharp writing.
  • Jan 08, 2021
    A comedy evovling around video games and toxic work place sign me up. Such a fun show to watch and the few minutes makes it convenient for repeat viewings
  • Dec 30, 2020
    Would give it a solid 5 if not for some occasional pandering of liberal idealism and one particularly annoying segment. Probably foisted upon them by Apple Corp. Giving an 4 because it's otherwise excellent.
  • Nov 12, 2020
    I thoroughly enjoyed it! Big fan of It's Always Sunny (and this is not that, so don't go into it thinking it's going to be just like Sunny), but I did not expect this to be as good as it is. I'm also a gamer and kind of a big nerd, so maybe that's also why I liked it so much, but it's just a really good story. I loved it!
  • Sep 24, 2020
    It is amazing how transparently this pushes an ideology. All male characters are idiots, narcissistic, power hungry etc. The usual tropes of mansplaning, pay gaps, whiteness etc. are used as much as possible. This is embarrassing.

    It's entertaining and feels like Silicon Valley lite... Still it's hard to care about anyone, and I feel like I see the watchworks.
