Mythic Quest Season 3 Review

If you like what I do and want to show your support, please consider buying me a coffee

With the third season of Mythic Quest now fully released, I feel disappointed with how it all unfolded. I am a fan of this series, but I found it nearly impossible to finish this season. Don’t get me wrong, I still recommend this series if you haven’t seen it, but this season has left a lot to be desired.

Mythic Quest is a comedy series that satirizes the gaming industry as it follows the work life at the world’s most popular MMORPG of the same name. The series focuses on a collection of wacky characters and their budding personalities as they try to make Mythic Quest a game worth playing. The series criticizes the gaming industry through its use of humor and its well-written narrative. 

While I loved the first two seasons of Mythic Quest, this season falls flat. The narrative was drawn out, with each episode ending in disappointing. This season felt like a setup for something that hopefully won’t get canceled by Apple. It began a lot of story threads bringing forth minor characters featuring stories you probably won’t care for. The overall experience was fine, but waiting week to week made this series harder to follow. Nothing was hooking me to come back for the next episode or season while we are at it. It is a better experience to watch the episodes back to back, but it remains the show’s weakest season. 

What keeps me from hating this season is that if you look at it as a whole and remove all the fluff, there is much-needed character growth that I was happy to see. There are important story beats that give the narrative its meaningful advancement, but you have to sit through some boring story-lines.

 I will probably watch the fourth season because I need my closure, but I lack the excitement I once had. Do not be discouraged, Mythic Quest is still worth watching. It has a fantastic cast playing great characters, and the story is mostly good. If you have Apple TV, you should have already watched it. If you don’t, it is worth the free trial.

  1. I’ve got this on my list but haven’t watched it yet. (My list is very long.) I tried to play an MMORPG once with some friends but having all those people around me in the game, even in the form of avatars, really stressed me out and I had to quit and never played it again …

    1. I love MMO’s, it was the only genre I ever played but I usually played solo and eventually made some friends. Most of the time when I go in on one with friends they burn out before I do. But the grind is where these games lose a lot of people. This series is more about the people that work there, kind of like The Office but modern. But I feel you on the list, I feel like my list gets longer every day. Good luck. Thanks for reading!
