So wow, it’s been awhile since we’ve done this. Actually, I take full responsibility for ABC’s long imposed Happy Endings hiatus as I’m pretty sure they just wanted to see if I’d remember how to recap a show. The joke’s on them though because I never knew how to recap a show to begin with if my previous posts were any indication. Anyway, that’s all in the past and we FINALLY have our favorite loveable idiots back for the next five weeks. Since it’s been so long let’s not waste any time rehashing the checklist of why people are idiots for not watching this show.
In the first episode of the night we saw Brad rallying the gang to help him save Chuckles and Hugs because Blankman’s sidekick sucks at running the books but thrives at ensuring people are always creeped out with announcements of people being buried in the ceiling. Dave was recruited to run singalong time with the three cords he knows while Alex and her simple brain is put on arts and crafts. Jane is basically around for moral support as she’s not exactly on the same wavelength as the midgets who still sometimes shit and piss themselves. Max and Penny escape Operation: Save Parent’s Sanity By Leaving Them With Strangers because they’re too busy asserting their power over their significant others with really weird LARPing of RISK and the help of illegal Mexican NyQuil. It all works out as Brad saves Chuckles and Hugs and then gets offered a big boy job at one the Parent’s financial firms, Dave becomes a one hit wonder thanks to a song about shit (no, it’s literally about shit-The Doody Song), and Alex achieves success that only Nike and Kathie Lee have seen by employing child labor to sell bracelets. Don’t worry, she lets them go… eventually. As for Max and Penny, they overcome their addiction after some intense googling and interventions among each other. I hope they read Stephanie Tanner’s tell-all so they too know how to lead a sober life. Read the rest of this entry »
