I tried to love this show, I couldn't. It hovers on the edge of two faces: annoying and potential.
Elisha Cuthbert is attractive, funny, and compelling. Her character is believable and well written. +1 Zachary Knighton is a good match for Elisha but not a compelling lead. I can't say if it's the actor or the writers, but somethings missing. And from what I've seen from Knighton elsewhere he's not the problem. Maybe this just isn't his role? 0 (Writers need to make him more cocky with quick one liners.) Eliza Coupe while sometimes her role is funny, it is so often annoying it's painful. -1 Adam Pally is the only reason to watch this show. He's hilarious. He lands his lines and sells his charm. He owns the role. But he's gay, and that really limits his story line. The whole show already has TOO much of a gay feel. =0 Damon Wayan Jr. is awesome. Just not in here. =0 Casey Wilson an amazing actress and comedian, just blows. She's so annoying on Happy Endings that sometimes she literally has me standing up and turning off the TV walking out the back door and shooting myself. -2
Happy Endings had such potential. But it ended up being about annoying people. You just don't walk away loving the characters.
