Dear Kid,

Have you heard about the new show Galavant? You should be watching it.

Well, no. You should be studying voraciously. But everyone else should be watching it because it is fabulous.

King Richard quote from Galavant! DearKidLoveMom.comIt is the best of The Princess Bride meets Gilbert & Sullivan and then had an affair with Men in Tights and whose favorite cousin is The Producers or possibly When Things Were Rotten. In other words, possibly the most perfect show ever.

Lots of silliness, lots of singing, Medieval countryside, pirates (always good), Knights in Shining Armor, Kings, a Bar Mitzvah sign, a jester, did I mention the silliness?

Who can resist songs like “Maybe You’re Not the Worst Thing Ever” or “Jackass in a Can”? (“Jackass in a Can” included here for your viewing pleasure.)

I once wrote the lyrics to a country song called “You Can’t Have My Heart, Will My Appendix Do?” That has nothing whatsoever to do with Galavant, but I thought I’d mention it.

Is Galavant campy? It is so campy it should be open for 8 weeks in the summer.

Love, Love, Love.

Not only do I love it for itself (and I do), Galavant has wonderful timing. It’s on at exactly the same time as The Librarians which should frustrate me because The Librarians started off so well. But now TL has gotten spooky and scary and the only time I venture into Spooky and Scary Land is when I’m working on our taxes.

Love, Mom
