Hilarious

A wonderfully funny radio program... Imagine if you took Monty Python, Lord of the Rings, and Red Dwarf and squished it all together... Bingo, this is it... Delightful bad punning and innuendo, not to mention the superb digs at pop culture and current events... Fabulous performances throughout... Absolutely worth the credit and you're welcome...

Not what I expected

I didn't know what to expect from this dramatization. I expected fantasy set in an alternate universe as it was written. But.. the synopsis doesn't do it justice. This is very funny with a lot of tongue in cheek humor. I started listening and had to back up several times for the jokes and funny happenings. Most of this is due to the background music and sounds blocking out softer voices. The humor is adult but not graphic. There should be more about the villain and about the dog. It is omitted in the synopsis that the dog is changed into a human. But he remains the faithful canine companion. He behaves as I would expect my dog to behave if he became human. His values are that of the loyal canine who doesn't really understand why he is now human. But he goes along with it because of his master. The villain and his side kick are funny too. The supporting cast is great. I am glad that I browsed and got the entire series on one audiobook. Anyone who enjoys radio type dramatizations and humor should give this a try. My only complaint is that the background music and sounds made the voices hard to hear at times.

Flawed Comedic Fantasy Radio Series

The first series is brilliant but then it becomes far too episodic and dragged out. During series 4 I struggled because I couldn't wait for it just to be over.

Silly and laughable

Great performance by the cast. Writing was witty and funny. A nod to Monty-python.
Enjoyable enough for a repeat listen.

Funny and Enjoyable

Just a quick heads up. This is the complete series unlike what the “story so far” would leave you to believe and it does not have an “ending”, not that it really needs one, just something I was wondering the entire time I listened.

Hilarious, Irreverent, and utterly Captivating

Simply put, I adored it. Definitely an Encore in order! The sound effects signaling the change of scene to the Evil Lord of Darkness brought a chuckle before the actors spoke. The actors voices perfectly portrayed the characters to a T!

Fun but Very Repetitive

What did you like best about Elvenquest? What did you like least?

I love the premise of a spoof fantasy series along the lines of what Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy does to science fiction. This is solid British comedy with its mixture of intelligent wit and utter insanity. That being said, the series gets very repetitive quite quickly. Most of the characters seem to have one joke to them, which they do over and over again. Yes, Dean is gay, Vidar is an idiot and Penthiselea is clueless about sex. Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett, however over the top their stories could get, were very good at grounding themselves with complex believable characters, who were interesting in their own right.

Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

Kreech, Lord Darkness' minion (voiced by Kevin Eldon). He is Pinky to Lord Darkness' Brain or Baldrick to Lord Darkness' Black Adder.
