one of the Paladins from the winning team, was nominated by her teammates and awarded the Mark of Leadership, the first of the small badges the contes- tants will wear to indicate they won a challenge. Back on the reality side of this fantasy series, the losing team of three must eliminate one of their members. As with all the future challenges, the competitors receive one last chance to save themselves in the Fates chal- The heroes venture to the final free kingdom, led by Crio the Dreamer (Jan Hutter, "Joyeux Noel," 2005), arriving at Castle Sanctum to hear the history of "The Quest" from the Grand Vizier (Marcello De Nardo, "My Best Enemy," 2011), chief among the queen's advisers. As the Grand Vizier explained, a similar group of 12 heroes defeated Verlox 1,000 years ago using the Sunspear. Verlox was banished back then, but has since made his way back to Everealm. The new Paladins each received a piece of the Sunspear from the Fates and must now train and compete amongst themselves in order to become the one true hero. The morning after their arrival at Castle Sanctum, the Paladins are sent to the training yard under the watchful eye of Sir Ansgar (Peter Windhofer, "Silk Road," 2008), head of the Royal Army. Working in teams of three, the champions use their skills and teamwork to take down fake enemies. Bonnie Gordon, acting with actors, their actions and abilities will determine the eventual "one true hero" who will take on the evil Verlox to save Everealm. "The Quest" is an ambitious series that aims to seamlessly merge our world with a fantastical realm. The imagi- nary world is inhabited by vari- ous species pulled from the pages of fantasy novels, as well as the essential castle full of good humans sheltered from the evils of the outside world. At the start of the series, the heroes arrive in Everealm and are greeted by the Fates, the mysterious beings who sum- moned the Paladins from our world to save the magical dimension. The Fates — played by Stephanie Buddenbrock ("Risse im Beton," 2014), Florence Kasumba ("Tatort") and Mai Duong Kieu ("Roughtown," 2014) — reveal that their world is under siege by a dark being known as Verlox (Doug Tait, "Pair of Kings"), and 11 of the 12 kingdoms have already fallen under the might of his onslaught. By Jacqui Wiens TV Media T he line between reality and non-reality television has always been a bit blurry. The genre has been plagued with accusations of scripting interac- tions, coercing their subjects into taking atypical actions and even predetermining the outcomes of various shows. ABC's recent venture into the reality genre is sending up smoke signals that obscure the line altogether, as "The Quest" takes 12 brave Paladins into the mystical Everealm, where being knighted is more than a formali- ty and where ogres, dragons and dark lords loom menacingly. Step inside the adventure as the Paladins fight to free Everealm when a new episode of "The Quest" airs Thursday, Sept. 4, on ABC. Dragons? In a reality series? It does seem absurd at first glance, but while the contestants — called Paladins — will be inter- Wishbone Restaurant 2 x 6.5" TV August 31 - September 6, 2014 TIFTAREA TIFTAREA The Paladins in a scene from "The Quest" SUNDAY DAYTIME AUGUST 31, 2014 10 AM 10:30 11 AM 11:30 12 PM 12:30 1 PM 1:30 2 PM 2:30 3 PM 3:30 4 PM 4:30 5 PM 5:30 6 PM 6:30
