Top 30 TV Shows of 2012 : No 13 Happy Endings

Winner of most improved comedy last season the show continues to impress.

Things happen in the world of Happy Endings like Alex and Dave reuniting or Brad losing his job but this is pretty much inconsequential because the show is all about the jokes and bringing the laughter and 9 out of 10 times it works really well.

It helps that in S2 the writers figured out what to do with Alex (make her crazy and thus hilarious) and Dave (make him think his so cool but laugh at how far from the truth this is) whilst focussing on the relationship with Brad and Jane and the BFF duo of Penny and Max.

There are hints of potential angst and a love triangle with Alex/Dave/Penny but the show doesn’t take this all that seriously and is better for it.

Some shows require an emotional connection, others just need laughs.

Oh my Kaiser Soze!
