galavant13smallHuzzah and Tally Ho! Tonight, one of my favorite shows from last year finally returns! I am so glad Galavant got a second season because the first season ended on quite the cliffhanger! As the season came to a close, all of the prisoners had escaped from the castle, except for Sid. Madalena killed Richard’s brother and took the throne for herself, with Gareth by her side. Meanwhile, Isabella made her way to the home of her young cousin/future husband, where she was locked away in a tiny room. And Galavant and Richard were boarding a ship, trying to make their way back to their loves.

Will Galavant find Isabella before she marries her child groom? Will King Richard reclaim his throne? How will Madalena and Gareth run their new kingdom, and how will Sid fit in as their new squire? And how will Chef and Gwynne deal will their new freedom?

I thoroughly enjoy this show and have been anxiously awaiting new episodes! The characters are so much fun, and each episode is so creatively written, mixing in humorous situations and dialog, clever medieval parodies of modern-time pop culture and technology, and extremely witty and catchy original songs. I love having an hour of musical comedy to look forward to every week – and with at least 4 original songs each Sunday, there’s bound to be one that gets stuck in your head the next day!

The second season picks up immediately where the first left off. (If you missed the first season, you can still grab it for free on iTunes!) This series is perfect for binge-watching as it plays out like long story. However, each episode also has its own self-contained arcs. The second season will be aired across 5 weeks, 2 episodes each Sunday. I had access to screeners of the first 7 of this year’s 10 episodes, and I couldn’t help myself… I binged them all in a day! But even though I’ve already seen tonight’s premiere, I can’t wait to re-watch the episodes again tonight!

On tonight’s first episode, “A New Season aka Suck It Cancellation Bear,” Galavant and the crew are shipwrecked thanks to bad advice, and their overland trek back to Richard’s kingdom leads to a bar in West Hollow-wood. Then, in “World’s Best Kiss,” Galavant sees a fortune teller and is able to contact Isabella, who is planning her escape from Hortensia.

Sing along tonight on ABC starting at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Simpsons, Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life, Family Guy, Bordertown, & Worst Cooks in America.

worstcooks2016smallI’m so glad that a regular season of Worst Cooks in America is back tonight on Food Network. Last time, we had a special season of celebrities, and while it was entertaining, I didn’t think it was nearly as fun as when we see regular Joe’s overcoming their horrible cooking to produce some great food. This season, Anne is once again going up against Tyler Florence, who she competed against in season 6. Anne’s recruit beat his in the previous season, and she’s won more than she’s lost by a good margin, so it’ll be interesting to see if she can take season 8 as well.

On tonight’s episode, “Fear the Worst,” Chefs Tyler Florence and Anne Burrell choose 14 recruits to train at culinary bootcamp; after the cooks make their signature dishes, Tyler and Anne pick their teams and attempt to teach them how to make a well-balanced dinner.

Meet the recruits tonight on Food Network at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Guy’s Grocery Games, Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life, & Cutthroat Kitchen.
