Finally, “Galavant” has debuted on ABC and it did gallantly, with the whole singing, the execution of the characters and the plot itself. Read below for the full recap of Episode 1 “Pilot.”
Since it’s a musical TV series, it kicked off with an opening number and we were taken to the root cause of what happened to Galavant and why he’s on a mission to get the queen. So the story is that Madalena married the evil King Richard over Galavant. This is a fact that Galavant chooses to ignore even though his friends kept reminding him this. A fool in love, he got washed his worries away by being a drunken fool (making the fool in love much worse).
He was depressed until he met Isabella, a princess of a different kingdom who asked for his help to rescue her kingdom as it was in the hands of King Richard. Of course, it was just a scheme because Isabella is really working for the king in exchange for her parent’s freedom and all she needs is to have Richard brought to her.
A joust happened as well as a dinner between Madalena and Richard, which was very tenses I could almost taste it in the air and there was also a guest appearance by John Stamos who, unfortunately, didn’t sing and only cracked a few jokes.
In a nutshell, the pilot episode of “Galavant” was okay. I am not a big fan of musicals, but its lightness is a change and a great year opener for the network. It’s positive, fun and just happy!
