Has anyone here seen The Quest yet on ABC yet? It's basically a live action pathfinder game with really high production values and I was wondering if anyone else has been enjoying it as well. I'm not usually a fan of reality competition but this one had really held my attention.

So anyone else been enjoying the show?


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I'm enjoying it as well, though I was skeptical when I first heard about it.
What I dig the most is that the paladins are really into it(how could they not?) and are there for the experience rather than just a cash prize like other reality shows.

Bonnie and Shondo are my favorite cast members so far, but they've all been cool at one point or another.

Got any favorite?

I dont know if I would say "real high" production values but yeah I have seen it. The machines at my gym have a limited number of channels so this has been my thursday night gym session show. Reality shows dont usually do it for me but this is a welcome fit for thursday night since ive such a limited choice. I wouldnt watch it if it wasnt for my circumstances.

Shondo and Bonnie are in my to 3 to survive to the end. Patrick is my number 2 between Shondo and Bonnie since he is very for but also seems to have a lot of the heart and conviction of the other 2. Andrew is 4th. And I'm with you on how honest and into it a lot of the contestants have been and how it seems better designed to promote that. Like the final elimination that forces you to stand behind who you want to continue and face both that choice and those who you are sending home. Also solid use of more practical effects rather than blue screen work which would have looked so fake to watch the paladins react off of.

That being said I do have some complaints (like how they have a solid narrative angle that drives this thing yet use a lot of confessionals which is a little unnecessary) but overall it is a solid first effort and they've managed to pull a lot of my friend base into a TV genre that we are usually not interested in.

Andrew and Patrick are great too and have a good chance to get to end, yep.

Lina might be worth watching too, she was very determined in the last episode (and was the first with two medals).

Agreed on the confessionals, although Shondo's comment are usually pretty darn funny, his comment after Sir Ansgar's fight made me chuckle.

I also got some of my gaming friends into the show after they saw a couple of minutes during a break in our regular thursday game. Discussing the latest episode has been a fun warming up before Pathfinder sessions.

Lol yeah. I'm interested to see how the show handles trotting out the BBEG and his evil plot. Also I'm happy to finally see Christian gone, that whole thing took way too long.

Other thing this slow had more caused in my home game is the desperate need for a wizard that has a scepter cozy. Was one of the things I laughed the hardest at in the first episode but now I really like as part of the design aesthetic.
