I Severely Miss this Show
This is my first review ever, so please bear with me.
Happy Endings was a terribly underrated and under-watched show that deserves very high praise. It blows both Friends and How I Met Your Mother completely out of the water (and trust me, I love both of those shows too). Each character was unique, well-developed, and hilarious! The show has a really distinct feeling to it. It was modern in the best kind of way. Penny, Max, Brad, and Jane were definitely standout characters for me. Alex and Dave were great too, but I have to admit they were not quite as interesting as the other four. Nevertheless, this show really let us get to know each character both individually and in the group setting. Plenty of memorable guest stars helped to round out the cast.
The writing is smart and funny. There are inside jokes that are recurring throughout the series. I keep finding great jokes upon multiple viewings. It's both laugh-out-loud funny and make-you-think-a- little funny.
This is the one show that I would pick if I could pick any show to come back onto the air. I would even give back season 4 of Arrested Development and the Veronica Mars movie (both of which I love) for more Happy Endings*. If you haven't seen this show, watch it right away and fall in love with this amazing group of friends like I did.
*EDIT: Okay, I may have been a bit over-dramatic with that statement...
