I watched Happy Endings on Hulu after it premiered because I had heard vaguely of it - and it was a good decision. What sounded like a hard-to-continue concept, Alex(Elisha Cuthbert) leaves her fiance Dave (Zachary Knighton) at the alter and the fallout as their long-time friends try to avoid choosing "sides," actually worked here. The supporting cast of friends include married couple Jane and Brad (Eliza Coupe and Damon Wayans Jr.), perpetually single Penny (Casey Wilson), and Max (Adam Pally, a breath of fresh air in that he plays a gay character whose main source of comedy is not that he's "the gay guy").

A word of warning, ABC aired a few episodes OBVIOUSLY out of order. The show appears to dismiss the problem where Alex left Dave at the alter rather briskly and then we see them trying to stay friends and move on - and what's odd is the group's easy chemistry and the fun writing mean you don't mind too much. Later, though, you'll see a pair of episodes that show Alex and Dave fighting and struggling to come to terms with the end of their relationship before recognizing that they can eventually still be friends. These were clearly meant to air second and third. If you watch them in this order, the friendship will probably seem more organic than the quick fix of the second episode as aired.

Other than this hiccup, this first season is fun and light. Cuthbert and Knighton play their relationship perfectly - they have years of history and still like each other as people, but play those awkward moments where one starts to move on romantically quite poignantly. The transition is never made to look easy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious! July 22, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Like the previous reviewer, I thought for the longest time that I was the only one watching this hilarious show, despite great efforts to pass the good word along. "Happy Endings" is a completely underrated comedy gem that has me and my friends laughing out loud several times an episode! It's like "Friends," only way goofier and more modern. Needless to say, I am SO happy that ABC was smart enough to pick this show up for a second season!

5.0 out of 5 stars A hilarious new sitcom! September 8, 2011
Format:DVD
I watched the pilot episode of this show when it first aired out of curiosity. I wasn't expecting much, but it ended up being surprisingly not bad so I decided to stick with it. It didn't take long before I was hooked. I looked forward to Wednesday nights just so I could get another dose of it. This show is so funny and enjoyable. The cast is great, especially Adam Pally and Casey Wilson, who play really well off each other. I am so glad ABC renewed this for a second season. While it already has a small following I'm hoping it can catch on with even more viewers in Season 2. Give this show a chance! Just don't give up on it right away if you don't instantly love it. It gets better and better.

5.0 out of 5 stars "You, my friend, are a gaycist." - Max August 6, 2011
By David.
Format:DVD
When I first watched this show, I thought it was mediocre at best. Then at about episode four, I started to love it. It takes a lot for a show to literally make me "lol", but this show does it.

The show is about a group of six friends living their life in Chicago. The main storyline running through the first season, revolved around Dave and Alex. In the first episode, Dave and Alex are set to be married but she ends up leaving him at the altar for a past fling that comes in at the last minute on rollerblades, confessing his undying love for her. Thus the group is forced to figure out how to handle the situation because they're all still best friends. During all of this, we also get little side story arcs from some of the other characters and to be honest, they are the funnier ones.

You have Max who is not your stereotypical gay guy (which is quite refreshing to say the least) and he is probably the most hilarious character on the show. He has the best lines. His best friend, Penny, is also quite hilarious and she is desperate and single. This leads to one of my favorite episodes of the first season in which Penny dates a hipster. Hilarity ensues.

Next up, you have Brad and Jane. They are the only married ones of the bunch. Brad is your token metrosexual (who is more gay than Max) and Jane is your typical control freak. It's fun to see how Jane handles the groups problems and exactly how far she'll go to prove that she will win at anything. Their relationship with one another is quite funny.

What makes the show great is that all the characters are believable. We all have someone in our set of friends that matches up with at least one of the characters on the show. The cast has great chemistry together and it shows. I'm so glad it was renewed for a second season, because more people need to give it a chance. It's well written, modern, and hilarious.

Definitely worth a purchase!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best new show on tv August 21, 2011
By Wampeer
Format:DVD
This show is effing hilarious. The first episode I was really iffy about but by the end of the second episode I was literally laughing out loud. As the season progresses you get attached to all the characters and love them even more. They are unique characters that play sooo well off of eachother. My favorite character is Penny or Max. Max is definitely an a-typical gay guy and it's refreshing. Give it a try, it's TOTES HILAR!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Chicago Based Sitcom on ABC in the past 10 years!
I honestly wasn't expecting this show to be as good as it was. But the cast meshes well together, the plots are silly and the right amount of absurd and it keeps me laughing.

As the critic said, veers between strongly verbal and aggressively verbal. Need to listen closely to all the zingers flying by fast and furiously. Great fun. Read more
