ABC really knows how to strike gold when it comes to fairy tale shows. After a misfire on the Once Upon a Time Alice spinoff, I think they've really hit on a treasure with Galavant. I can't wait to start watching it on Sunday!
Apparently Galavant is kind of a cross between Princess Bride and Monty Python and the Holy Grail. How could that go wrong? It's medieval, it's hilarious, and it's got awesome comedic original songs! There's absolutely nothing like it anywhere else on television, and let me tell you - that's really saying something these days.
I'm absolutely delighted about the songs by composer Alan Menken, who's working with lyricist Glenn Slater. I included a lyric video showing off their musical stylings. There are also great guest stars, like Ricky Gervais, "Weird" Al Jakovic, John Stamos, and cast members from Downton Abbey.
Finally, I just can't resist a great tongue-in-cheek fairy tale satire. I really hope it turns out to be as awesome as it seems - because I'm definitely buying into the hype!
