The Good, The Bad, And Whether You Should Watch
Happy Endings will not be a comedy for everyone. Its jokes are tame, and often reference cultural stereotypes or nearly forgotten colloquialisms (“down low, too slow). It’s also about a group of twenty somethings, so while the situational comedy speaks to my generation and those around mine, I’m not certain an older audience would find it endearing or fully understand the humor, which could potentially be a frustrating problem for new viewers of different ages.
The good news is, there’s no laugh track, the writing is not punchline, punchline, punchline, and the characters really do seem like some weirdos many of us would love to hang out with. My suggestion is to give an episode a shot. If Happy Endings isn’t up your alley, you only wasted one half hour, and it’s not really the sort of show that will keep you up at night regretting having delved in.
