Update: ABC is rebroadcasting the first two episodes of Galavant tonight (Wednesday, 7 January 2015) at 10 PM EST.
I didn’t really expect much from the first two episodes of Galavant, which ran last night on ABC. Boy, was I surprised! Loved it! It’s as silly and wonderful as Monty Python or Blackadder.
The music is by eight-time Oscar winner Alan Menken (The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast) and lyricist Glenn Slater (Tangled), but these bawdy song are a long way from Disney. We’re definitely in adult fantasy land here.
Every fairy tale needs a great love song.
That’s Timothy Omundson, from Psych, playing evil King Richard.
The remaining six episodes will be screened over the next three weeks. You can watch the first two episodes On Demand, or at ABC Go.
