Episode 5 (“A Dark Quiet Death”) of Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet (Apple TV+ Original) was an incredible gut punch for me. It’s an entirely standalone episode (essentially a prologue to the series embedded mid-season as a pace shakeup). Highly recommended. The rest of the show you can take or leave, but that episode was worth it. Subtler in its message/satire than all the surrounding episodes, but also far more biting of a commentary.
