Stop what you're doing. Take that hand out of your pants. Release the baby you have in your grip. Remove the stove top from your grasp. Whatever you're doing, stop it.
And watch this video!
That, my friends, was the trailer for ABC's upcoming new musical comedy, and bound to be my favourite show once it hits airwaves, for way too many reasons to count. Seriously. You guys know my modus operandi by now; I could genuinely write an essay or seven on all my favourite things about Galavant, but I'll spare you that agony. (You could always ask me on my Tumblr!)
Ricky Gervais, alum of BBC's The Office, has been cast as a wizard of the medieval persuasion. The character, Xanax, is particularly gifted and (in?)famous for his potion-crafting and whisking clients away on alchemy-induced trips down memory lane. He sounds adorably amusing already.
Honestly, I'm hoping this is another hit and garners a cult following like ABC's flawless and pinnacle of all dramedies, Ugly Betty (which was hilarious and fantastic and should never have been cancelled; Wilhelmina was everything). But this has the potential to go even further, because it's a musical. Comedy, presumably drama, action, adventure, and music. A winning combination.
What say you, Poppets? (I feel invariably British when I say that. If only I had the accent to match.) Do you think this show will be successful? Got you interested yet?
