‘Mythic Quest’ season 3 episode 4 review: An important meeting between Joe and Jo

Mythic Quest may have found its big star for the film adaptation.

We learned the big news that Mythic Quest was green lit for a film adaptation. One of the next steps is finding the right lead to bring in the star power and drum up excitement. Since he is an executive producer, David is contacted by a famous Hollywood actor that is interested in being part of the project.

Unfortunately, David is held up in traffic and his assistant must meet with the talent alone. I’ve been really enjoying Jo’s journey so far this season. The series has placed her in situations outside her comfort zone and this episode is no different. Jesse Ennis really conveys her character’s awkwardness in social situations and there is some classic entertainment with her boss in Jo’s ear feeding her lines.

There is also a greater magnitude as she is opposite guest star, Joe Manganiello, who plays himself. It’s fun to watch Jo walk the fine line of flattery and disinterest to convince the actor without sounding too eager. Speaking of Manganiello, he brings with him major fantasy geek cred with his enthusiasm for Dungeons & Dragons and I can’t wait to see him let loose on Mythic Quest.

One pairing that is hitting it off is between Ian and Joe. Their relationship is filled with so much positivity and they seem to be so in sync. It’s no wonder because they are both big dreamers and don’t let things such as defying the laws of physics get in the way of their vision. It’s funny that Ian considers himself on a separate level creatively, but now he’s found a kindred spirit in Dana. The mentorship works both ways as Ian is maturing and willing to put more trust in others. This contrasts to last season between Ian and Dana both in how well they get along and in driving situation.

Things aren’t so rosy in the Mythic Quest office. Brad’s NFT promotion is a failure so he turns to Rachel for fresh ideas. In the current Berkeley student, he has someone who has a better finger on the pulse of the industry compared to a former head of HR, and potentially someone who is too oblivious or naïve to know that she is being exploited. You feel sorry for Phil from the art department and his team. They’ll experience more crunch and, as he puts it, he now works for the janitor and his assistant.

Elsewhere, Poppy has the new testers play Hera but the feedback is mixed. Though it’s impressive technically, the main drawback is that the game is no fun. This plays with her ongoing narrative of struggles on the creative end. It’s partially why she needs Ian. It should be interesting to see how she responds to this setback in the future whether she becomes more motivated or lets it consume her. Regardless, it’s a real ego check.

This week’s episode continues great character work with Jo as she thrives outside her comfort zone while creating some dynamic pairings with the rest of the cast.

New episodes of Mythic Quest drop Fridays on Apple TV+.
