Adventurers without a clue.
2 July 2013 | by hellraiser7See all my reviews

The people at Dead Gentlemen always had a fascination with fantasy and RPG, I can emphasize with that because I do too. They've done the next best thing, they've created a fantasy web series which is not really something I've seen or I feel has been done much at all.

There's really not a whole lot to say, it's simply Adventurers whom go on a quest to find a magic sword which of course is the typical maguffin device in fantasy, to save the land from evil. That's it simple but that's what I like about it, it's a simple plot but that's the clothes line for what the characters do and what happens to the characters.

One of the things I like is how the series is formatted and how it gradually develops. In a way this series is almost like a soap opera, it sorta is since it has some elements of melodrama, twists, people and things happening in different places more or less connected to each other and plot (or what resembles one) thickening little by little. Only difference though is this show is actually entertaining.

I really like the production value as usual the amateurs they are they have to work with a low budget but they used it well. I love the use of the locales which were big enough to create a fantasy world, costumes were also great, the action scenes were decent they were well choreographed. Like the make up work on the orc, goblins, and demons they were on par. Music score was decent it at least fits the show.

However what powers it are the script writing and characters. The characters I think are solid they're all pretty much typical fantasy archetypes, but what makes them stand out is how they play contrary to those types. Doing and saying what those types normally wouldn't say or do. There are a few characters that stand out for from a knight character (forgot his name) but he was great he sort of reminds me of the Lancelot character from "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" just a person that is gung ho and thinks with his sword instead of his brains which is what leads him to commit unnecessary slaughter.

The Yellow Wizard (Christian Doyle) isn't true to his title of Wizard. But is true to his color Yellow. He's pretty similar to the Chris Winner character in Dead Gentlemen's earlier "Demon Hunter" films only he's a wizard; or even Sir Robin from "Monty Python and the Holy Grail". This guy is practically useless in the quest from not being able to weld spells worth a damn but retreating from the trouble the minute he sees it, makes me wonder why the hell he even came at all. Yet, the only high point for him is he's able to uncover things though his dumb luck, so I guess that does make him useful by a tiny margin.

But my favorite character is "The Assassin" (Sanara Lermu), I just think she's awesome because not just is she capable of kicking some butt but she has dry charisma, mysterious in both identity and motives, and she's kinda hot (I know what she looks like). What can I say, I'm into bad and mysterious girls.

But like in any RPG game there are those inavertant misteps. One of those misteps are the verbal humor isn't that memorable, I don't know if it's just me or not but there just aren't enough memorable lines. I don't really like the whole Bard subplot, it doesn't really do anything for the story for me anyway and is kinda boring, I thought so anyway.

But like any journey the further it goes along the easier and more interesting it gets like this show as the seasons progress. Overall, its a solid web series that I think is worth a look, it has enough magic to keep you entertained. Journey Quest is a strange but fun journey.
