Watched The Quest last night on ABC and I have to admit I thoroughly enjoyed it. Yet another reality show, this one takes the reality show concept to a new level of nerdiness as 12 competitors (Paladins), compete to be the savior of the kingdom of Everealm and last hero standing. Apparently it took five years to realize the project and four months to find the right kind of contestants. The show is filmed in an amazingly picturesque castle in Austria, with full immersion cast staying in character 24/7.
Last night’s episode saw the first contestant go home after his or her (no spoilers here) team failed the ballista challenge. Heck, I’ll probably keep watching just because they had a ballista challenge. The show is good fun and here’s hoping it doesn’t get bogged down by the dreaded cheese factor . . . what?
