And so begins this post,
With me your gracious host,
About a show known as Galavant.
With Menken in the chair
And Lassiter everywhere
There is no show quite like Galavant.
Sure, they are cheap archetypes,
But, the cast have great windpipes.
Oh, itís lots to watch, I know
But gently caress you, just do so
To see whatís up withÖ

Twitter appeals to one's inner narcissism, it's a game of trying to get the most followers, while also avoiding going around begging for followers. The moment you think of how few followers you have, you lose. I have 21, gently caress.

The sad part is that the younger generation is bringing their Twitter mentality to message boards. You used to post on message boards with the intent and expectation of having long-form conversations with other people. Nowadays, there's a large segment of posters who get downright offended if you reply to them with anything but unmitigated praise. Why the gently caress are you posting if you don't want people to read and reply to your messages? If you want to be the lonely king of poo poo mountain, go on Twitter where you can block out anything and anyone who upsets you.

Ah gotcha. Also, Annakie is a girl.

I heard that Galavant's first season was going to be really short. Like it's only going to be four episodes or something and it's finishing in a single month. Do they want this show to die?

It's eight episodes in four weeks. They probably don't want it to die, but they also clearly have no idea what to do with it.

8 episodes, but yeah, it looks like it's all being aired over 4 weeks. Seems like an odd choice.

Absolutely, it's like these posters think that whatever they've posted is this pinnacle of perfection, that it's not an opinion, it's not even a fact, but some universal truth that they are spouting and any other conflicting opinion must be some form of trolling. It's quite disturbing to see this display of narcissism, and yet on other websites like Reddit, it's put on a pedestal like a badge of honor: "The Hivemind".

The upside to these older message boards is that nothing is generally hidden and nothing can be "downvoted" or reported out of the way. Every post gets equal treatment, regardless of quality or merit.

Butt first, let's

I'm having a weird rollercoaster ride with whether or not to watch Galavant. I wasn't interested at all at first because while I think it will have some laughs I think its a premise that will die a quick death as a TV show.

But then I found out it was a "four week event" and I got all in because I can see it working in a short run and if it burns out at least it won't have much time to suck.

But now I learn its actually 8 episodes/hours and not 4? I don't know. That's a lot more time to get bad after the novelty wears off and just short enough that I'll feel compelled to finish.

Really, though, all you need to do is take a look at the guest stars to get really hyped for Galavant.

Below the line for those who care:
Ricky Gervais, Rutger Howard, Donald Glover and John Stamos.

I like the idea of it and will watch Lassiter in pretty much anything, but ABC burning it off two episodes at a time in January doesn't speak of high confidence.
That, and the only two other TV musicals I can think of are Cop Rock and Viva Laughlin, so there's not really a good pedigree for the genre.

Weird Al is also guest starring, which I guess is either good or bad depending on how you feel about him.

Can't tell if you're being you or not, but that's not Donald Glover in the commercials. The actor in the preview is Luke Youngblood , who to be fair, is also on Community.
