The Best Show on TV that You Aren’t Watching

Happy Endings

After forcing everyone I know to watch this show, I will now force you. You can thank me later.

Created by David Caspe, Happy Endings is hilarious, ridiculous, and over-exaggerated in all the right ways. Each episode is funnier than the last. The somewhat new ABC comedy is nearing the end of it’s 2nd season. But don’t let the major network time slot fool you- Happy Endings is as original as comedy TV gets.

The best part of the show is the character development. The show follows the lives of 6 friends and their shenanigans in the beautiful city of Chicago. From a distance it appears to be a classic sitcom, but once you start watching you’ll be pleasantly surprised. It is 10X edgier than F.R.I.E.N.D.S., and not just because there is a black guy (played by the brilliant Damon Wayans Jr.).

Happy Endings

The show is character driven and I attribute it’s success to the dynamic between the actors. You love to hate each and every one of them, flawed and over exaggerated in all their glory. The repartee is am-uh-zing.

Here are some life lessons I’ve learned from watching Happy Endings…

  1. I love finding out about new hidden shows! I have never heard of this show, but it sounds like one I should check out! It seems like ABC is king of off-beat tv shows right now. With Modern Family and all, one of my favorite shows!

    • You’re, right, ABC is killin’ it with comedy right now! Modern Family is hilarious, and I think this show originally followed Modern Family, an attempt to get the same quirky audience.
