Review Stream: Mythic Quest


Series: Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet

Where to watch it: Apple TV+

Seasons: One

Spoilers: No

Ian (pronounced like nine minus the leading “n”) is the creative director on a popular MMO video game called Mythic Quest. Ian works with a great coding team lead by Poppy. Poppy is Ian’s counterbalance, dragging him down to earth and keeping him encouraged. The office’s most notable characters include: David, the executive producer-he is forever torn between supporting his creative “family” and his bosses higher up the ladder, David’s assistant,Jo -who is enthralled with Ian, power, and cyber bullying, Brad- head of monetization, who exists to prove that money makes the world go around, to waste time, and create strife within the office, C.W. Longbottom- the washed up, awarding winning writer, Rachel and Dana- the game testers, Carol -in HR, and Sue -in customer public relations/complaints.

This shows gives us a peak into a dramatized and hysterically disorganized office just days before and shortly after the release of an expansion for a popular massively multiplayer online game. I promise there will be internal power struggles, petty arguments, dinner parties for Nazis, battles to the death, and a toast to a shovel.

Rating: A

Is it worth watching: Yes, no prior gaming experience needed to enjoy this but I think you’ll probably love it more if you are a gamer. Episodes are a short 30 minutes so this series is a quick binge. I enjoyed it so much that I re-watched it with my son (It is a true TV-MA due to language.) The characters are terrible but still fun and generally likable.

It has a diverse cast with women in strong roles. My personal favorite is Michelle, a dreary coder on Poppy’s coding team. She has a blunt, often bleak outlook who is not afraid to be honest.

Notable cast includes: Rob McElhenney, Danny Pudi, Jake Johnson

Sharon Isom

Once upon a time, Sharon was invited to attend a comic convention. She had always wanted to go to a comic-con but thought it was out of her reach. While at this convention, she met Richard who asked her if she could write. She scoffed. Of course she was capable of writing. But then he clarified and asked if she would be willing to a be a writer for TBK Magazine. She agreed. Little did she know that she was signing on to become a podcaster, assistant editor of the magazine, Vice President of a publishing company, best mensch, and a sister. Her whole world would expand for the better after that trip in 2016. She would be forever grateful. The magazine would be her safe haven and the staff would become a part of her family. And still to this day, Richard has not fulfilled his promise of singing the cow song to Sharon.   Sharon was born in mid 1980’s and raised in Northeastern Arkansas. She has been married to her childhood sweetheart, Jesse, since 2004. They have two amazing sons. Outside of her official TBK responsibilities, she works as a nurse.   She loves theater, costumes, cosplay, and Halloween. She is addicted to Chapstick and will ALWAYS have at least one with her at all times. She despises spiral staircase, escalators, and people that do not understand how four way stops work.
