Let’s Talk About Last Night’s ‘Happy Endings’: “The Marry Prankster” & “Our Best Friend’s Wedding”

By: 01.30.13  •  165 Comments

Last night gave us another great pair of Happy Endings episodes, both ostensibly advancing the plot line of Penny (finally) getting married to Pete. That is all well and good, and we will discuss their upcoming wedding and all the hoopla that already surrounds it in due time, I promise, but HOLY HELL you guys, how great was that first episode? If Happy Endings does eventually end up getting canceled, and no cable network swoops in to save them, I am going to write a script for a pilot titled Max and Alex Just Doin’ Pranks and Stuff, rent a helicopter, and litter Southern California with hundreds of copies of it until someone agrees to make it in the interest of public safety, if nothing else. (“Tonight at 11, four more pedestrians injured by falling scripts. Mad man still on the loose.”) And THAT ENDING. Jesus. YES.

So, yeah. We have much to cover. Let’s begin.
