And while Ted Lasso is only halfway through its first season on Apple’s streaming service, it also has drawn praise from critics.

The breakout show for Apple TV+ has arrived: Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet. It’s hilarious, but also has heart.

This isn’t a typical office comedy. It’s set at a video game development company, so episodes are a struggle between employees trying to be creative, others trying maximize profitability, and people caught in the middle just hoping to get the code shipped on time.

Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet, Apple’s gamer comedy series from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphiastars Rob McElhenney and Charlie Day, has debuted on Apple TV+.

In a break from Apple’s approach with some previous shows like The Morning Show and Servant, all nine episodes of the show are available to binge-watch now. The show, which is Apple TV+’s first true comedy series, follows the makers of a fictitious MMORPG game setting out to create their first-ever game expansion.

Apple TV+ had its quietest week yet in terms of new shows, with (to the best of my knowledge) zero new programming uploaded Friday.

Apple Originals Servant, Truth Be Told, The Morning Show, See and For All Mankind have now concluded. All eight episodes of Little America debuted last week. And with seemingly nothing new on the calendar until Mythic Quest arrives on February 7, it could be a quiet few weeks on the Apple TV+ front.
