Galavant - S02E02

Comedy . Musical

Galavant and Richard see a fortune teller who is able to connect Galavant to Isabella using a crystal ball. Isabella receives Galavant's "call" as she is plotting her escape from Hortensia. Unfortunately, it's a "bad connection," and Isabella hears only every other word. She is devastated by the call, but Galavant believes it went well. He promises to return to her as soon as he drops Richard off at his castle. The only problem is that Richard's castle seems to have disappeared.

    Galavant feels like a slapped-together production that will only confirm the suspicions of heathen TV-watchers who think most musicals consist of flimsy stories padded out with tunes that repeat the plot developments.

    Just being incredibly good-natured isn’t quite enough to create a show you’d want to watch every week.

    These jokes aren't funny ones. They're old, threadbare ones that Galavant does nothing to build upon. In fact, they might be Galavant in a nutshell: everything seems different, but this is the same old TV slop in a different suit of armor. Full Review

    It comes off as way too broad to be witty, and too raunchy to be a comfortable fit for family viewing.

  • Verne Gay

    It's all got the stirrings of something that should be funny, or wants to be funny, except that it's too often not - confoundedly, relentlessly, insistently not. [3 Jan 2015]

  • Rob Owen

    The series does try to develop its characters, but Galavant never quite finds a way to ideally pull together its gonzo comedic spirit and musical aspirations.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Robert Bianco

    Nothing about Galavant is quite as good as it needs to be — or nearly as good as the multiple spoofs it seems to be copying, in part because it never seems to be quite sure about what exactly it's spoofing.

  • Neil Genzlinger

    Despite some amusing bits and clever songs, it’s only occasionally as much fun as it ought to be.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Hank Stuever

    The show offers an excess of mildly clever yet sincere goofiness. It’s as if someone set out to make a Spamalot for an audience that can’t quite grok Python, would find Into the Woods too morose and maybe missed half the pop-culture references in the Shrek movies.

  • Willa Paskin

    This is, without question, the oddest show to arrive on television in quite some time. ... [But] unlike the best musicals and fairy tales, it never once transports you to a land far, far away.

  • Margaret Lyons

    I wish Galavant were a movie. I found the show charming and festive and impressively committed, but in half-hour chunks, there's very little room to build the kind of momentum the series needs.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Joanne Ostrow

    Self-indulgent but packed with great cameos and kitschy production numbers, the whole affair could have been a tight 90 minutes. Instead it's flamboyantly self-referential and clocks in at four hours.

    Half the jokes are inspired; half the jokes hit the floor. Full Review
  • Robert Lloyd

    At times it feels enough that the players seem to be enjoying themselves to enjoy it alongside them.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Matthew Gilbert

    Galavant is a musical spoof of knight-in-shining-armor stories that is slight, unoriginal, and uneven, but that can be amusing and diverting nonetheless.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Sonia Saraiya

    Galavant is extremely silly--but at least it knows it’s silly.

    Salon Full Review
  • Alan Sepinwall

    Unfortunately, the whole is less than the sum of its comic and musical parts.

    Hitfix Full Review
  • Kate Kulzick

    Galavant’s focus on lighthearted quips and banter over character growth or introspection keeps it from packing the punch of its more emotionally driven precursors, but its sincere embrace of musical-theater tropes and unabashed silliness are likely to win the show a loyal fan base nonetheless.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Josh Bell

    TV audiences may not have known they needed a small-screen equivalent of Spamalot--and the network may not really know what to do with it--but Galavant turns out to be completely winning in all its cheesy glory.

    Las Vegas Weekly Full Review
  • David Wiegand

    The music is effective without being especially memorable. You may not leave your living room humming any of it, but you’ll still be chuckling over some of the jokes in the lyrics, many centered on puns, childish humor and groan-inducing obviousness.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    Galavant largely overcomes the challenges that have traditionally bedeviled TV musicals with rambunctious energy, cheeky lyrics and music, and — significantly — a half-hour format, thus condensing the need to create songs into a manageable task.

    Variety Full Review
  • Jethro Nededog

    No part of the equation that makes up Galavant is subtle. It piles on the songs, the choreography, the bawdy humor and the clever writing. That deep dive into the genre is what will help viewers shake off the doubts we had going into it. Galavant is a uniquely enjoyable ride.

    The Wrap Full Review
  • Bruce Miller

    Written by Dan Fogelman, Alan Menken and Glenn Slater, the new musical miniseries on ABC has so many clever bits and witty songs you’ll think someone wrote a sequel to “Spamalot.”

    These guys know what they’re doing. And this time they’re doing it with a welcome edge in rousing, ribald times.

    Fans looking for wit and whimsy can expect a happy ending. [26 Dec 2014/2 Jan 2015, p.115]

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Liz Shannon Miller

    Galavant is perhaps most watchable thanks to the fact that there isn't anything like it on TV right now, and likely never will be replicated. Beyond that, it's silly but fun--rare enough in this world.
