    Original Content podcast: ‘Mythic Quest’ is a likable comedy with a single standout episode


    There’s a great deal to like about “Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet,” a new series on Apple Tv+ — its sympathetic-but-essential portrayal of the video clip video game sector, its goofy-but-likable characters and a few of big surprises that occur at the close of the year.

    But what really stood out to us — as we go over on the most current episode of the Original Content podcast — was a solitary episode, “A Dark Peaceful Dying.”

    Without having acquiring into spoilers, it’s in all probability protected to reveal that the episode mostly stands apart from the rest of the period, telling a self-contained story about two figures (performed by Jake Johnson and Cristin Milioti) who, immediately after they generate a quirky horror video activity that turns into a surprise hit, explore that success isn’t all its cracked up to be.

    Wherever the rest of “Mythic Quest” is a broad comedy (with the aforementioned likable people and astonishing plot), “A Darkish Silent Death” is extra of a drama that quietly — but agonizingly — portrays the tensions between commerce and art. And if we have a criticism, it’s that the episode’s accomplishment can make the rest of the show truly feel a very little foolish in comparison.

    We also discuss Anthony’s interview with the creators of the clearly show and how “Mythic Quest” could possibly have been formed by the involvement of video video game organization Ubisoft. And prior to we start out the evaluate, we respond to this year’s Oscars.
