GALAVANT – My rating: 8.5/10

GalavantI just love this star studded mini series. It’s a musical but a good musical. The music is great, not corny and each production sounds different, not like some musicals that are thrown together hastily. Galavant is a period piece and comedy that tells the story of a prince who’s true love named Madalena, played by Mallory Jansen, was stolen by the evil King Richard, played by Timothy Omundson. As Prince Galavant, played by Joshua Sasse goes on a quest to seek revenge and reclaim his one true love, he teams up with a squire named Sid, played by Luke Youngblood and Princess Isabella Maria Lucia Elizabetta of Valencia, played by Karen David. Together they encounter some very funny situations. It’s been a complete joy to watch this series each week. My only con is that it’s only 8 weeks long. Expect stars like John Stamos as Sir Jean Hamm, Hugh Bonneville as Peter the Pillager, Sophie McShera as Gwynne, “Weird Al” Yankovic as a Confessional Monk, Ricky Gervais as Xanax the wizard, Anthony Stewart Head as Galavant’s Father and Rutger Hauer as Kingsley to grace the story in the coming weeks. There are some wicked jokes thrown around and some wicked situations that is sure to get a many laughs. If you don’t like musicals, Galavant is not for you but if you like a clean, wholesome comedy with a few twist, Galavant is just what the doctor ordered. Check it out on ABC.
