I tremendous imagine on this present — and likewise, Tad Cooper.
Whats up, I am Allie, and I am late for completely all the pieces besides my dinner and my interval.
One other TMI reality about me that you simply did not ask for is that I LOVE musicals. I do not care how tacky they’re — for me, they’re like serotonin in track kind. So, naturally, I have been watching A LOT of them to assist compete with my COVID-19 quarantine blues.
So when this random-ass musical TV present I had by no means heard of from like 2015 known as Galavant appeared in my Netflix solutions due to my musical binge, I used to be like, “Okay, I am going to give this a shot.”
And y’all…HOW DID NO ONE TELL ME ABOUT THIS SHOW? I THOUGHT WE WERE ALL FRIENDS?!
To begin, this is my absolute favourite method to describe the present to somebody who’s by no means seen it:
Cool, so have I drawn you in sufficient that now you are curious concerning the present’s ACTUAL premise? Oh no, I am not going to elucidate it to you with phrases…LET THEM SING THE ENTIRE SETUP FOR YOU INSTEAD:
As I am positive you may collect from the above video, each single track within the present slaps more durable than it has any proper to — most likely as a result of they had been produced by ALAN. FREAKIN’. MENKEN.*
Attempting to not spoil an excessive amount of — as a result of I severely assume you must watch it if you have not — the present principally takes each fantasy and fairy story style trope you count on to see and goes, “LOL, no thanks!” then does regardless of the heck it needs.
Oh, you ~assume~ you already know who the true villain is? WRONG, he is really the perfect — and likewise your new favourite TV character.
(No actually, King Richard ought to’ve gotten the Iron Throne. I am tellin’ ya, you are going to love him.)
However I digress. The present as an entire is nearly annoyingly well-written, and like…
…It is so freakin’ humorous.
It has EVERYTHING. There’s SEVERAL surprising romances and unlikely friendships:
There are a variety of enjoyable breaking-the-fourth-wall moments:
In addition to some completely executed inside jokes:
And a dragon that is undoubtedly not only a lizard:
Did I even point out the CELEBRITY CAMEOS but?! Ricky Gervais exhibits up as a magician named “Xanax” in a single episode:
Kylie Minogue is the queen of a homosexual bar in the course of a forest and has a whole-ass track and dance quantity in one other episode:
WEIRD. AL. IS. A. SINGING. MONK. IN. A. COUPLE. OF. EPISODES:
So — with all of this mentioned and executed — you may think about my misery once I found my new favourite present is ONLY TWO SEASONS LONG with 18 episodes*…and it deserves extra.
So, please take into account this my formal request for a 3rd season of Galavant. I need to see Tad Cooper grown up. I need to see Madalana go full D’DEW. I need to see Gal and Isabella on extra adventures. I need to see Sid get a solo.
So…uh…yeah. If you have not seen it, go watch it — but in addition, I would like one other season. Somebody please give me one other season of Galavant. Okay? Thanks.
