This Week on TV: Galavant (season 2)

thisweek_

I’ve mention a couple times how much I love Galavant, right? Well, the second season just finished and let me tell you this: it was EPIC!

I thought the season had a couple of episodes in the middle that were a bit of a miss, but the last 2 episodes more than compensated for that.

I loved watching Richard grow to be the King he was supposed to be, and finding love in the process – yes, he’s my favorite character! And OMG, he HAS A DRAGON!!!! lol.

I loved that Isabella and Galavant got their happy ending, though I didn’t find their story as good as in season 1. I adored Garrett and Madalena together. SO GOOD!!!! And the Jester got a bigger part this year and I loved it. And Sid saved the day. And everyone got their HEA, while poking fun at everything in real life.

Galavant is a gem in the TV world, and I do wish they get a 3rd season, though I don’t think it will happen =/

Galavant Season 2 Promo

THIS JUST MADE MY DAY!!! I hope you know what I’m talking about here, because Galavant is, in my humble opinion, the best freaking thing that happened in television in the last few years. I can’t control my excitement right now…

The show will be back for a second season and it starts on January 3rd, and it will run for 5 weeks. OMG, it’s so great to see the gang back! Check out the promo below.

And, if you haven’t checked out season 1 yet, do yourself a favour and go watch it! Now! It’s very short and it’s very worth it.

ABC renews Galavant, Castle, Marvel’s Agent Carter, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., etc… and they cancel Forever

Oh ABC, I’m really happy with you today, though it took it took you long enough! The network has announced yesterday the renewal of 22 shows, including some that made me real happy, such as Castle that will be back for its 8th season (with Stana Katic’s return still up in the air); Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which will be back for a 3rd season; Marvel’s Agent Carter was granted a 2nd season (and it’s probably the one I’m most happy about!) and Galavant, that amazing comedy, will be back for a second year!

Not everything was good news though, ABC has decided to pull the plug on Forever, not renewing it for a second season, and Resurrection.

‘Blue Monday’, a cold, Jane Austen and Galavant

Oh yes, today is the gloomiest day of the year. When I got to work at 8 a.m. I saw this and thought: “nonsense, today is great, my baby niece turns 7!”.

By 10 a.m. I was pretty sure that all the predictions were right. The cold that was threatening me for over 2 days finally hit me, so hard that I can’t stay away from a tissue for longer than 15 minutes and that’s the maximum amount of time I can look (without loosing focus) into my computer screen.

By this time I knew that most of the work I did yesterday was in vain. By 12 p.m. I was counting the minutes so I could leave and come home, which I eventually did around 2 p.m., announcing at the same time that I’m in no condition to go to work tomorrow – to which my advisor told me “oh yes, stay at home, please do”.

ferris-bueller-sick-dayThe rest of the day went by in the darkness of my room (bright light hurts my eyes), watching a Jane Austen movie I had here – Northanger Abbey (which I loved) and then discovering the amazingness of Galavant.

Tomorrow I’ll stay home, hopefully I’ll feel good enough to do some work, I still have one movie and 2 BBC miniseries by Jane Austen that I need to catch up on…

Oh Galavant, where have you been all my life?

So, let me get this straight, ABC had  this jewel hidden in their arsenal, and they started the year thinking: Manhattan Love Story will do better… really?! Have you seen Galavant yet?! No?! What are you waiting for?!

LUKE YOUNGBLOOD, MALLORY JANSEN, JOSHUA SASSE, TIMOTHY OMUNDSON, VINNIE JONES, KAREN DAVIDThis is hilarious I had no clue as for the premise of this show, well, I knew it was comedy, but I did not know the rest, and man, was I positively surprised! So much so that I watched all six episodes on a row… and damn it, now I have to wait a week for the last 2. This is the show I never knew I needed and now I’m desperately hoping that they renew it, because I don’t know how I’ll go on without it ;-).

Apart from the great main cast (Joshua SasseTimothy OmundsonVinnie JonesMallory JansenKaren DavidLuke Youngblood), be aware for all the amazing guest stars that show up every now and then.
