    Mythic Quest often plays like a mild lark uninterested in pushing itself into truly gonzo territory. Once its protagonists’ quirks and hang-ups have been firmly established, the series is able to play off of those attributes to wittier ends. Yet even so, none of its central figures are distinctive enough to stand out from any number of like-minded comedy efforts.

    The humor is uneven in the early going. ... But there are also long stretches where this group of very funny and well-cast performers are just running around frantically and yelling at each other.

The characters are well developed. You for a second almost forget about Cricket. In the pantheon of shows that have come out from ASIP minds, this one has been my favorite (sorry AP.BIO I still love you) I'm an older gamer in my thirties, and I thought the plot was on point. Don't listen to the stupid trolls about PC culture. Does the show tackle tackle women in gaming? Yes. They do it well, and its dumb to think a show wouldn't take on topical ideas. Full Review »

    How is it possible that those guys are so triggered every time a series has more than 2 female Characters?
    This show is not "woke". The development team in this show has 2 female developers and the rest are all male. The show is far from being "woke". I sense a lot of Always Sunny in Philadelphia Vibes.

    Well, enough of that, i can really recommend it, it just feels like a mashup between Silicon Valley and Always Sunny. The characters are great and even if not everything is quite accurate about the game industry, most of it is authentic. I hope Apple+ will keep this series, its the first one i really liked on their Service.

Wasn't sure going into it what I'd think, but it really won me over. The first half of the season is a typical office comedy with a really fun to watch dynamic between the characters and a cool setting of video games. Then there's a really well done episode halfway through that is like a good mini-movie, very good quality. Kind of dramatic. Then everything after that point seems to be this great balance of comedy and emotion, and that's where the show really shines. It's a great first season and am looking forward to watching more!
