Mythic Quest: Raven's Banquet (Apple TV+ show)

I looked around and I didn’t see a thread for Mythic Quest; if there is one, feel free to merge this.

I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked the show (about the workers at a World of Warcraft-esque MMORPG). I thought it compared very favourably to Silicon Valley and Superstore, two other workplace comedies that I think are funny. Rob McElhenney’s character (the egotistic creative director) is much more interesting than his character in It’s Always Sunny, IMO. The weakest part was probably the will-they, won’t-they relationship between the two QA testers, but it had its moments too.

I’ve only made it through the first five episodes (and ep5 barely counts as watching the show) but it’s been a fairly entertaining trip so far. Nothing where I’d say “OMG you need to be watching this show” but amusing enough to keep going. Usually a good laugh and a few chuckles from each episode.

I could see it either dying after this season or hanging around for a few similar seasons of “good, but not must watch” content. Being on Apple TV can’t help it since I never hear of anyone talking about Apple TV, much less for original programming.

Well, it made me laugh out loud enough times that my wife said “hey keep it down, I’m trying to watch something here”.

(Does 9 months count as a zombie?? :zombie: Anyway…)

I just discovered this show over the weekend, and – despite not being a gamer – I loved it! I could have done without the in-game day/night transitions, but my only significant complaint is about the Jo character: she so totally should have been fired as soon as she sent the “kill yourself” message to Pootie_Shoe. Her schtick got old pretty much immediately. Otherwise, though, good stuff! I loved episode 5 (it was nice to see Jake Johnson outside of Stumptown), and the end of episode 10 was surprisingly fun to watch. :slight_smile:

It seems like there will be a second season…I look forward to it!

Bumpity. Season 2 has started (and of course there are the pandemic special and the post-pandemic special.)

I’m really looking forward to this season, but these days I am a spoiled binge-watcher: I plan to wait until most (if not all) of the episodes are available. :slight_smile:

Well, the latest episode (2x06) had a highly unexpected guest star!
