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.

But it was not as the Broadway gods wished.

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 +?

Disney Working on a Stage Version of The Princess Bride

Aaaaaas Yooooou Wiiiiiiiiiiiish

You are correct, this is not a screencap from The Princess Bride. No, it's from another piece of modern source material that parodied a very specific period in European writing and then was converted into a stage musical.
