Product Description

Take six twenty something friends, add cocktails and hormones, shake, and you’ve got Happy Endings, the hilarious new comedy that asks: When a couple splits, who gets to keep the friends? Dave (Zachary Knighton, TV’s FlashForward ) finds fulfilment (sort of) manning a food truck after losing his hot fiancée, Alex (Elisha Cuthbert, TV’s 24 ), at the altar. Alex’s type-A sister, Jane (Eliza Coupe, TV’s Scrubs ), is almost happily married to horndog Brad (Damon Wayans Jr., TV’s The Underground ). Dave’s roommate, Max (Adam Pally), is a gay, sports-loving slob, and Penny (Casey Wilson, TV’s SNL) is on the prowl for a good man...or men. The laughs are nonstop as they do what tightly knit friends do best: hang out, have fun, debate the meaning of life, hook up, break up and do it all over again!

5.0 out of 5 stars Underrated but it's comedy gold 29 Mar 2012
By D. Diep
Format:DVD
This may look like Friends, or your typical sitcom involving a group of people, but it's just not. It's much more than that. The humour is wittiest, fast-paced but more than not always on par. Yes, it's about a group of friends, but the similarities pretty much ends there. I'm not going to spoil it for you, but if you love shows like Community, Parks and Recreation, The Office, Modern Family, Arrested Development etc., then this show will be perfect for you. Trust me.

Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars The BEST new comedy from the US 12 Jun 2012
By BeBe
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I just happened to catch an episode of 'Happy Endings' on TV and was immediately hooked. I then rented the whole series on DVD and then just HAD to buy it. If you enjoy the humour, quick wit and sharp cultural references of 'Scrubs' and 'Community', you'll love this. (I actually thought this was another Bill Lawrence creation - it's THAT good.) The cast is outstanding with well drawn characters; each with their own loveable idiosyncrasies. The script is razor sharp, fast paced and, most importantly, hilarious. This show could be the new 'Friends'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great start! 7 Mar 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A very good first season. Refreshing to get to know people who aren't perfect and don't live perfect lives and who don't fit into the usual stereotypes. Lots of feelgod and laughs. I would rate "Happy Endings" as second to "The big bang theory" when you look at the best comedy shows still inproduction at the moment, just narrowly beating "Modern Family".

5.0 out of 5 stars very silly but very funny 4 Feb 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
From the opening episode right through to the end of the series Happy Endings is very funny. Very silly characters who get into some ridiculous situations but all the while very sharp writing and great performances keep it all extremely watchable.

For fans of Friends I would highly recommend!

5.0 out of 5 stars Not your typical sitcom 15 Feb 2012
Format:DVD
I was tempted to put "Better than Friends" as the title for this review but didn't want people to write the review off as hyperbolic, but in my opinion this show is definitely better than `Friends' and really doesn't get as many viewers at it deserves.

`Friends' is an inevitable comparison as Happy Endings is about a group of friends, 3 guys and 3 girls, two of whom are married, two of whom were together but have broken up, living in a major American city. However Happy Endings is far from a stereotypical sitcom and one of my favourite elements of it is the way in which it takes typical sitcom plots and clichés and defies them or finds new approaches.

Happy Endings is a very particular type of comedy - while it is definitely zany it focuses mainly on rapid-fire, verbal, 20 jokes a minute humour. The plots of the episodes are never massively complex, they tend to serve more to give a loose framework in which the actors can deliver as many jokes as possible. Verbal comedy is definitely my favourite type of comedy, which is why I am such a fan of the show. This also makes Happy Endings a perfect show to buy on DVD as you will definitely pick up on jokes you missed on your second, third or fourth watch.

I didn't have high hopes for the show from its first episode - it starts with main characters Alex and Dave about to get married, when she leaves him at the altar when a guy (on rollerblades) stops the ceremony. So far, so rom-com. However the show manages to build well on this ridiculous opening (and quickly salvages Alex's character) and over the course of the first series establishes a set of nuanced characters with strong friendships and a lot of warmth between them.

Complete waste of money, please don't bother. Just another one-off that will never continue and be scrapped after the first boring series.

I absolutely love this show. If you like things like New Girl, The Mindy Project, then you will love this. The more the series goes on the more you love each and every character.

Not funny, boring and couldn't get past the 3rd episode. Genuinely boring, and tries too hard to stick to some kind of Friends cliche. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Hidden Gem
One of the best comedies of recent years. More Spaced than Friends with some Scrubs and How I Met You Mother style humour thrown in. Hope it makes it to Season 4.
