THE YEAR OF PHIL should’ve been called the “year of filler instead.” Unfortunately, we are rounding out the end of season three, and outside of E7’s flashback episode, SARIAN, most of the season has been subpar. We have characters repeating the same themes they did last season with weaker comedic moments. Yes, there are some lone highlights. Carol, Jo, and Brad have been the MVPs this season. Yet, there hasn’t been much of a hook to keep me playing.

There’s nothing wrong with E9. The challenge is there’s nothing remarkable about it either. It’s especially sad to see a throwaway performance by the lovable Joe Manganiello.

I hope the season finale can “unmask” some of the magic from Seasons one and two. If not, MYTHIC QUEST is quickly proving that it has little replayability.

It’s available on Apple TV+.
