Mythic Quest

With the end of the school year, the main source of my blog topics has evaporated. So, I'm left with the things that are going on with me, like what I've been watching on TV.

'Round about this time last year, I stumbled into a little show on Apple + called Mythic Quest. Currently, Apple + is dropping new episodes weekly with just a couple episodes left in season 2. 

With a title like Mythic Quest, you might be expecting fantasy characters, swordplay, and a medieval setting. What it actually is is a workplace comedy. Mythic Quest is the name of the MMORPG (video game) that the studio produces. 

There are conflicts between the creative team and the money people. The game's creator seems to think he's a genius, while those around him deal with his crazy. And the various employees interact in the ways you'd expect in this sort of situation.

Apple + is one of those streaming networks that is trying to attract subscribers. While I wouldn't subscribe for this show (I got a free subscription when I upgraded my iPhone), there are a couple other shows (along with this one) that make the subscription worthwhile.

Here's the trailer for season 1: 

And for season 2 (which is way funnier if you're familiar with season 1): 

Have you seen Mythic Quest? Do you subscribe to Apple +? 


  1. No iPhone so no Apple + here. Glad you are enjoying the streaming service. :)

  2. I don't have Apple+, though I have heard of the show. It does look like something I'd like, but I'd have to watch it through other means.

  3. I'm still trying to get my streaming though Prime to work.

    1. It is. Not worth getting a subscription just for this, but tack on Ted Lasso and The Morning Show, and you've got some stuff to watch.

  5. To your questions, no Apple Plus, but I did watch the first year trailer. It sounded interesting enough to watch if it was available on my cable, Yes, I'm one of those who still have cable and haven't cut the cord yet. Call me "a few years behind". Alana

    1. Nothing wrong with cable. Roommate had to cut the cord as cable kept raising the rates. Streaming has a certain set of problems that make me miss cable.

  6. I currently have AppleTV because of a free subscription, and we just finished the first season of Mythic Quest last night. I absolutely LOVED it. I can't wait to start the second season.

  7. Thank you for sharing. I've not heard of this.
