The Quest is a fantasy world in which 12 normal folks are chosen to defend Everealm. Each week they face challenges and are slowly whittled down to one remaining and that one is the one true hero. Okay, so normal isn't what most people would say. These are all folks who love the genre of fantasy. They loved it enough to say "Yes, I will go live in a castle in Austria and compete for no prize other than being the one true hero."
Sounds too good to be true right? Well it's what is called a scripted reality show. The main players that are controlling game play are actors with lines and the only ones without the script are the 12 contestants. This show comes to us from ABC and some power hitters in the film industry. Reality TV meets Lord of the Rings! It's a geek's dream come true. So, I can't decide which would be better writing for the show or competing on it.
Arkansan Jim Curry, the youngest Paladin as well as the tallest, did well and was not first to meet his fate. If you haven't seen it I won't spoil it for you but the question for the pieces of the Sunspear to banish the darkness from Everealm has begun! Tune in Thursday's 8/7 central to cheer on your favorite Paladin. You better believe I'll be watching and rooting for Jim!
