Day 1098: No Reprises

Move aside Television, Galavant's back!

In a surprise that no one saw coming, the fairy tale musical extravaganza was renewed for a second season, and this time around things are better than ever...unless you're one of the main characters. Everyone seems to be in a sticky situation as the series picks up where it left off: Galavant and Richard are on a pirate ship traveling to Richard's kingdom, Isabella is trapped by her family and their insistence that she marries her much younger cousin, Sid is stuck with the Queen and new [King], who just can't get along, and everyone else simply avoids singing the same old song over and over again.

Galavant is one of those rare gems on television. It's completely ridiculous, but it's basically a Renaissance Fairy Tale parody of our lives today, and that's great. In fact, the plotline moves quickly, but at a speed just right to keep things funny and lighthearted. And now that the show has said "Suck It, Cancellation Bear," things are even funnier.

End up in the Enchanted Forest? Perfect [say fans of OUAT]. Evil Queen? No problem. Oh wait...the "evil queen" owns a gay bar called "The Enchanted Forest?" Well then. Time for a raging musical number that will get stuck in your head for basically the rest of your life.

Prime time television will never be the same. 

And that was just the beginning. From there, some of my favorite moments including jokes about pirates, cell phone reception, King Richard in general, boredom, and this line that perfectly describes my entire life: 

Long story short, Galavant is back and it's better than ever. It kills me that, while I'm gonna be happy to be in Florida, I'll miss the next two weeks of Galavant. At least I'll be back for the finale though! YOU can watch Galavant Sunday nights at 7 on ABC, and I highly recommend you do! You won't regret it! 

Have a magical day!
