There's a lot to like about "Mythic Quest: Raven & # 39; s Banquet," a new series on Apple TV + – his personable but critical portrayal of the video game industry, his silly but personable characters and a few big surprises coming at the end of the season.
But what we really noticed – as we discuss in the latest episode of the original content podcast – was one episode, "A Dark Quiet Death".
Without getting involved with spoilers, it's likely to show for the most part that the episode stands out from the rest of the season, telling a self-contained story about two characters (played by Jake Johnson and Cristin Milioti) after creating a bizarre horror video Discover that success is not all that matters.
While the rest of "Mythic Quest" is a broad comedy (with the likeable characters mentioned above and the surprising plot), "A Dark Quiet Death" is more of a drama that quietly but painfully depicts the tensions between trade and art. And if we have criticism, the rest of the show can look a bit silly by the performance of the episode in comparison.
We also discuss Anthony's interview with the show's creators and how "Mythic Quest" could have come about through the involvement of video game company Ubisoft. And before we start reviewing it, we're responding to this year's Oscars.
