“At last the night has ended and so the new day dawns.” Yes! MYTHIC QUEST is back.
What started as a silly video game workplace drama with dick jokes has evolved becoming a comedy with heart and having the best Zoom worthy pandemic special last year. The show LARPS to this new special with the gang returning to the office for the annual Everlight tournament.
Ian, Poppy, David, Brad in Monetization, and the supporting cast all fight for the Everlight crown. The results? Hilarious. I loved seeing the group realize “they cannot defeat the darkness with a dick.”
While TED LASSO was the feel-good acclaimed comedy for Apple TV+ in 2020, MYTHIC QUEST was the underdog. In this special, they pull off one of the hardest feats on TV, the special effect comedy. There are countless failures of special effects ruining comedies (see THUNDER FORCE), but MYTHIC QUEST uses the effects to serve the story instead of taking away the comedy "light."
I can’t wait for the dawn of season 2 next month on Apple TV+.
