Jessica Jumps In: A Newbie's Sample Of Happy Endings
4. Necessary Investment Level
While the characters are designed to feel like they could be your friends, itís not a huge deal if you only check in on the crew once or twice a month. Having never seen Happy Endings before, I obviously had no problem understanding who was dating whom and what each characterís general personality was like.
That being said, Happy Endings does seem to really like recurring gags and inside jokes. I could tell a few times that characters were referencing themes or jokes that had come up in the past, but that I didnít have a frame of reference for. Regardless, these moments didnít really detract from my viewing and they didnít seem to pop up as often as they do, say, in Arrested Development.
