Happy Endings Review: You're Not Johnny Drama!
Okay, things are going to get really awkward if the writers of Happy Endings try to make Dave and Penny happen after tonight's development.
In "Meat the Parrots," we found out Dave's dad and Penny's mom are doing the horizontal mamba. I think many people echo my sentiments when I say that we have enough step-sibling incest on TV already with Gossip Girl!
Another awkward, but hilarious development was the fact that Dave and his father both like to go commando. Guess Dave's new big sis, Penny, won't be able to give him any atomic wedgies! Besides, Penny's really did go overboard with the "baby bros" despite the hilarity of that Johnny Drama line.
By the way, you have to appreciate the writing on a show that can reference Entourage and Rear Window in the same episode. Alex was getting Jimmy Stewart paranoid about that Chinese restaurant. Damn, business must be bad.
And FYI, girl, that racist homophobic parrot isn't going to help bring in any customers! Neither will the mood rings. That's about as passe as Entourage being funny (aside from the early seasons, of course.)
That all being said, I totally would've been spying alongside the crew. I love that they ordered every single item on the menu and Alex, never one to waste food, even dragged it along to go on their mission.
Great guest stars tonight, although Ed Begley Jr. was slightly random. His sandwich sounded so delicious, though. The casting for the parents on this show so far has been perfect. Dave and Penny both played perfectly opposite their parental units. And the Big Dave and Dana actually seemed like a cute convincible couple to me!
Brad and Max had the smaller storyline this week, but I thought they brought the bigger laughs. While this wasn't the best Happy Endings, it was still thoroughly enjoyable. Hit the comments and don't forget to check out the hilarious and dirty quotes. "Dialed like a rotary phone?" I'm still laughing.
