Tv Season Info
Cast & Crew
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.
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.
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.
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.
The series dives into megalomania and workplace chaos with eccentric, frenzied energy.
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.
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]
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.
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.
Take out the occasional swear word and add in a laugh track, and most episodes of Mythic Quest could pass for a CBS sitcom.
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.
Audience Reviews for Mythic Quest: Raven's Banquet: Season 1
8h agoIt's like 40 year old virgin meets The Office meets Always Sunny meets WoW
Feb 15, 2021It'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, 2021This 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.
Jan 27, 2021All the pieces fit together. Very talented group and very sharp writing.
Jan 08, 2021A 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, 2020Would 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, 2020I 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, 2020It 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.
Sep 13, 2020It's entertaining and feels like Silicon Valley lite... Still it's hard to care about anyone, and I feel like I see the watchworks.
Aug 15, 2020Not as bold and outlandish as Silicon Valley, but still edgy and unique and relatable enough to entertain. Character development and unique setting (a peek into the game industry from the game maker's point of view) have been particularly strong for Mythic Quest.
