The Princess Bride

  1. ABC’s ’80s Sitcom The Goldbergs Gets Princess Bride Tribute Episode

    No one tell my baby he's not a Dread Pirate Roberts!

    I'm way behind on Season 2 of The Goldbergs, but I definitely had a Selfie-like relationship with the show's first season, which surprised me with its sincerity, awesome cast and frequent homage episodes to '80s classics like The Goonies. And now, according to showrunner Adam F. Goldberg, the series has gotten permission from Castle Rock to film a tribute to one of his favorite movies.

  7. There’s An Alternate Universe Where John Mayer Wrote a The Princess Bride Musical

    "There's a shortage of perfect breasts in this world..." ["Your Body Is a Wonderland" plays in the distance.]

    The Princess Bride is already getting a stage production, but in a recent interview director Rob Reiner revealed that musician John Mayer, among others, already took a crack at musicalizing what many consider to be one of the most perfect—certainly one of the most quotable—movies ever made.

  8. A Trailer For Galavant, ABC’s Medieval Comedy Musical TV Series

    Cautiously Optimistic

    Musical TV series don't have a great track record but this new one from ABC might be just what the doctor ordered. At their recent upfronts, ABC Entertainment President Paul Lee called Galavant "Spamalot meets Princess Bride," which is pretty much on point. I'd add Robin Hood Men in Tights to that as well. I'll give it a watch but it will be interesting how it keeps up the pace each week. Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?
