I’m a little late to the banquet, but I can say it now, having just binged the first season.
From Rotten Tomatoes‘ Top Critics:
Matthew Gilbert: Boston Globe. “It’s a smart, energetic series that contains what may be the most important element in a successful comedy: an alchemical ensemble of characters, each one as curious and distinct as the next.”
William Hughes, AV Club. When it wants to be, Mythic Quest can be a shockingly thoughtful series about the conflicts that arise between ego, collaboration, and money in a swiftly growing field like games.
Dan Fienberg, Hollywood Reporter. It’s not consistent, but it’s already trending in the right direction in a story that, unlikely It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, features characters who can and should grow.
Alan Sepinwall, Rolling Stone. The more interesting part of Mythic Quest comes when it’s not even trying for laughs… In the meantime, there’s enough in Mythic Quest to suggest this group has comic life beyond Paddy’s Pub.
My take: It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia never clicked for me. Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet had me at the trailer.
Cue the official trailer:
