Happy Endings Review: You're So Vain
Happy Endings had a solid first episode back after the holiday hiatus, as "The Shrink, the Dare, Her Date and Her Brother" brought up a topic not often discussed on friends-based sitcoms. What happens when not every member of the group is close one on one?
You would think Alex would be closer to Brad considering he's her brother-in-law, but awkwardly that wasn't the case. I love that Brad's voice gets high when he's uncomfortable. It's small traits like such as that which makes each of these characters hilarious.
I would say hilarious and believable, but there were a few things I found to be totally fake. One, what firemen are really that hot? Two, how could this crew really not have a better out call excuse than "there's a meteor coming?"
The last piece of unbelievable plotline was Dave's therapist being remotely qualified. Then again, Dr. Rickman did mention that the American Psychiatric Association had their eye on him.
So, do you guys think that Dave and Penny could have unresolved feelings for each other? I don't really get that vibe. I don't think Alex would be too happy about that. Besides, what happened to that little moment Dave and Alex had on the last episode before break?
I don't know about the rest of you but I busted out laughing when I first saw Max's outfit. What an amazing bet!! Jane's was equally as entertaining. She truly did resemble Carol Brady. As for looking like she was about to molest Bobby, well, I think her lingerie for the firemen was more applicable to that notion.
The fire is in our pants. Classic. Check out my other favorite Happy Endings quotes from the episode and don't forget to hit the comments!
