TV Series – Happy!

Show Review – Happy!

Holy shit. Okay, there’s a few things I’ve gotten on a podium and wanted to rant about. Happy! Is now one of those items.

Take a gritty feeling from either Sin City movie and shove in the comedy of an imaginary friend – and you get Happy. It’s stellar. Patton Oswalt voices the imaginary friend and I hope someone dresses up as this flying unicorn so that Patton can have another “You’re inside me moment” like he did with Ratatouille.

The main character is a former detective who snapped one day and went into more drugs, more drinks, and more murder. Hard boiled and violent – the action rarely stops for long and throughout it all we get spikes of amusing confusion from the flying pony. Murder, murder, murder, unicorn high on meth. Murder. Drama with the ex-wife, more murder, unicorn trying to deliver a life lesson in friendly song from a little girl’s teacher.

I could wax on, but really – if you have Netflix, fire it up. Check out the first ten minutes. Take note of the awesome angles chosen for the camera to make things more dramatic. Make it to the second episode where our former detective is high as a kite thinking he’s on the set of Jerry Springer while also running from mobsters out to kill him. See the creepy Santa who might be insane and probably is. Look at the ex partner who totally ruined a marriage and is now all bent out of shape but amusing.

Be amused with a worthwhile binge watch. See Happy!. Be happy. Or else.

And as a bonus, I just looked this up again, found it was a comic series written by Grant Morrison. See more by Grant on his Amazon page.

"There was a weight in the early autumn air. Though they were both persistent in their presence, it was neither the oppressive heat nor the dense humidity that animated the atmosphere this day. The air was fattened, rather, with promises of things to come. Bad things."
