Happy Endings Review: Power

by at . Comments

It's been a hot minute since Happy Endings has graced our television screens. "In the Heat of Noche" marked the return from its extended hiatus and all I have to say is "save Happy Endings!" 

I don't know about you guys, but I need to see Max and Penny tripping on Mexican sleeping medication every week!

Saving Chuckles & Huggs

That's right, it's all about the "Noche-Tussin." If there was really a drug that prevented people from over texting or drunk dialing a guy or girl in their lives, people would be selling kidneys on the black market to get their hands on it. That's just what happened in this technology addicted generation!

Max and Penny are always at their best when they play off of each other. They're best friends as well as a perfect comedic match. So what do you buy about the power struggle? Do you abide by the not texting or calling rule? How far would you go to regain the edge in that power struggle? 

Meanwhile, the rest of the gang was busy following Whoopi Goldberg's lead in Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit. Brad took his wifey Jane's advice in order to save Chuckles and Hugs. He put his business knowledge to work and hired his friends to help spice things up. Dave was the singing act, Alex did semi-illegal arts and crafts, and Jane...well Jane just tried to fit in with the kids.

Jane: You use your special skill to save the gym!

Brad: Wait how am I supposed to give fourteen consecutive orgasms to a brick building? | permalink

By the end of the episode everyone realized they had gone a little overboard. Max and Penny were hot messes who were hooked on illegal sleeping meds and Alex was running a child labor ring to make popular bracelets. Not the smartest idea.

Another thing I worry wasn't the smartest idea was ABC's decision to move this show to Fridays. I can only hope that people still tuned in after over a month without Happy Endings. Hit the comments and let us know what you thought of the comedy's return!

im so happy its finally back!! i love all the scenes with nochetussin. clever name.. btw Leigh, there's another episode that aired too (3x15)


One of the problems with Happy Endings for me personally is this: I have to have the closed captioning on with the sound in order to understand it. They all talk WAY too fast (and sometimes I can't even read fast enough to catch every line). Sadly, there is probably no way this sit-com will make it, especially on a Friday.

Hey Max think I could bum some cereal? Haven't had a carb in four years, feeling nostalgic.
