Studio 60 should have killed, Mr. Sunshine was rather funny, and though I wasn’t a believer in Go On for a while, it got to me after a few episodes. None of them lasted two dozen episodes, but they didn’t get yanked after, let’s say, four either, so they got some chance to get moving. For whatever reason, where other Friends stars have had certain success (Joey, oddly enough, has one of the best shows on television right now), there’s a certain, “Look Dude, you’re Chandler,” vibe that seems to still be following Perry.

Once again, we open with a brutal action sequence in which one of our two leads barely escapes arrest or worse (with Elizabeth making short work of Agent Gaad and another fed), and we close with the shocking murder of a Kgb asset (Annalise, who makes the mistake of telling Yousaf too much in a place with no »

Musicals have been a genre rarely explored on television, and fairy tales even less so. Thus, the idea of a new show in either category is an intriguing one and a show that combines the two, as Galavant does, is an exciting prospect. With a four-week run (eight half-hour »
