Show Summary

Welcome to the MythQuest guide at TV Tome.

MythQuest is an hour-long family drama television series featuring two teen characters, Alex Bellows (Christopher Jacot) and his wheelchair bound sister Cleo (Meredith Henderson). They have discovered a wondrous, heart-pounding secret that could unravel the cosmic struggle between good and evil, and, in doing so, reveal what it truly takes to be a hero.

Like a magic looking glass, a computer screen becomes a gateway to the kingdom of myths: a gateway into which their own father, a celebrated archeologist, disappeared. Now on a quest to find him, Alex and Cleo must test their own heroism as they cross into a cyberworld of mythic imagination.

The show is currently airing in Canada on Showcase and on PBS.

  • This show definately should have stayed on, I remember watching it a long time ago XD and I remember liking it a lot

    This show definately should have stayed on, I remember watching it a long time ago XD and I remember liking it a lot and whenever I talk about it to people they never know what I'm talking about. I was just trying to find it online to show my roommates, who are also fans of mythology. Does anyone know where I can find this online or where I can download it? (if you can do that here I don't know cuz I just joined and don't know how to use this site)

    Anyway this show is definitely worth watchingmoreless
  • Alex and Cleo Bellows search for their father in a world he created, where classic myths come to life. However, they come up against Gorgos, a trickster god, who presents further trials for the siblings.moreless

    "MythQuest" was pulled before it had a chance. I was hooked every episode and would have loved to see the series end properly, with Alex and Cleo finding their father and Gorgos being defeated.

    With a mix of adventure and history, "MythQuest" showed a facinating twist to the classic myths, including the story of Osiris and Isis, Orpheus, the Oracle, Thesues and the Minotaur and so on. With good characters and constantly appealing storylines, a second season could easily have been made, with the Bellows exploring further myths and discovering more about their father's disappearance.

    It is a pity the show did not attract a larger fan base, and I for one would love to see it back.moreless
  • Loved it. Notice the pace tense.

    I really liked this show (I saw it on PBS years ago *sigh*) because it was education and fantasy-like. But it reminded me of the dog that reads books, Wishbone, I think he was called. Anyway, I wish they'd put it back on, at least to end it adequately (i.e. Where's daddy?).
  • I agree with History_Girl

    This was a really great show! It always made me suspensed! LOL I wish it wasen't cancelled! It is like my favoite show ever because of the story. It was really good and well planned. I hope they can make a final show that tells how it really does end.
  • Didn't get a good enough chance.

    Mythquest is one of the best tv series to come along in a while, and it only got to run for one season!

    With interesting characters, a brother and sister team (which is much better than always being 'love interests'), you learns about real myths that exist in world culture.

    This series gave an incite into those myths and I felt was very good for 'relucant readers' who may never have even heard of some of the characters because they didn't want to pick up a big, thick and old book.

    It suits anyone from a pre-teen upwards as the characters they become, range in age, culture and type.

    Sad that it's gone, for the record - Red Wolf's Daughter was my favourite episode - and was well written into a novelisation.moreless
