Galavant S2 So Far...
S2 Ep 3 "Aw, Hell, the King" Richard discovers his former kingdom has been converted into a democracy using the resources of his former castle. Gareth has nightmares about betraying Richard, and Madalena forces Sid to help him. Sid makes Gareth realize he is feeling guilty over his decision. Isabella mourns her breakup and wants nothing to do with her upcoming wedding to Harry, but wedding planner Chester Wormwood has plans to take over Hortensia and has her wear an enchanted tiara, putting her under his control. Galavant asks the citizens to volunteer for his army to rescue Isabella, but the only volunteer is a lady named Roberta. Galavant, Richard, and Roberta set off to find more members for their army.
S2 Ep 4 "Bewitched, Bothered, and Belittled" Richard realizes that Roberta is a former childhood playmate of his. Galavant wants to get rid of Richard, so he tries to set them up together with a romantic dinner, which works for Roberta but not for Richard. Chef and Gwynne celebrate their new status as upper lower class citizens, but Gwynne is unable to adjust to it, and she convinces Chef to leave with her and return to their former lifestyle. Madalena is invited to a party by two snobby sisters who used to shun her when she was poor, but it really turns out to be a roast of her and she is humiliated again. On her return to Valencia, she realizes that she is feeling hurt for the first time. But when Gareth takes revenge on the sisters, she kisses him and notices another new feeling.
This episode had some of my favorite songs but also my least favorite. I loved "My Dragon Pal and Me" Richard and his "dragon" was hilarious. Though it did finally push Galavant over the edge (and you can't blame him). But is wasn't a big fan of "Different Kind of Princess". Maybe if they would have gotten a well known person it might be been funnier but then again the singing was fine it was just the song that I didn't like which is disappointing because I liked the idea behind it. The only good thing from that scene was that Isabella loses the tiara and is no longer under mind control. The bulk of this episode is about the Giants versus the Dwarves and what makes it funny is that all the men are exactly the same height so when they start to fight nobody knows who they are suppose to be fighting.
Another great episode and I loved every song in this one. It was great meeting Galavants father. The Gareth wanting to fight for his birthday was funny and Madelena trying to make him happy was very sweet. Loved the Forrest of Coincidence and how many of our characters come together. And of course the ending when Sid accidentally stabs Galavant.
Neo of Sporin is the funniest name for a doctor. I like that Roberta and Richard finally get together. I liked Isabella rallying the troops for a fight. And Galavant gets him army... of Zombies.
Lot's of set up for the final "hour" of Season Two. I loved Madalena and Isabella sing off. Madalena goes evil.. like real evil and embraces dark magic. Just when you think Roberta and Richard are on the upswing she breaks it off as she can't watch Richard go to war as she knows he's an idiot and will probably die.
Can't wait until next week and the final two episodes.
