Happy Endings Season Finale Review: Mandonna Reunites
To be honest, I wasn't in love with "Four Weddings and a Funeral (Minus Three Weddings and One Funeral)" for the most part. I had high hopes for another wedding episode of Happy Endings but it was kind of mediocre. I'm not even trying to be critical because you all know how ah-mah-zing I think this show is!
Then something happened at the end that bumped things from mediocre to unreal. Max zipped on some pants - that basically took Penny a coat hanger to get on - and he slapped a Madonna mole on his face. Let's face it, Max + Madonna cover band = pure gold. It also doesn't hurt that "Mandonna" performed one of the most crowd pleasing songs of all time, "Like a Prayer."
All I needed was a Journey cover band performing "Don't Stop Believing" and I would've passed out from joy.
There was also the fact that David Silver (aka Brian Austin Green) was in this episode. Gosh, he is just adorable, why isn't he in more stuff? I hope he gets to appear next season! Not just for my enjoyment but I would like to see Penny date someone for more than five minutes. Is it mean to say I'm not surprised that it didn't work out with the guy who she had all those sleeping picture of? Creepy!
Also is the "Skype Table" something that really goes on now? Note to all of my friensd: please don't seat me there unless you are setting me up with Dylan McKay.
The moment with her and Dave has been building for awhile, but I'm still not really feeling it. I ultimately feel that Alex and Dave will end up together. It wasn't the right time for them but I think in the end they are made for each other. I think they know it, too. Even though the show introduces other love interests for them, they always drift back to each other.
As for the other couples, Jane and Brad always work it out. So what that he got laid off? In this economy I'm surprised it took a whole season for someone on the series to lose his job. There's no chance that Brad and Jane wouldn't survive that. They are both so type A and on top of their stuff they would immediately take care of the issue.
Just look how quickly Jane took over the wedding when Eric confided in her that there was a problem? Even in a hideous mustard colored tuxedo, Jane still runs things. Or should I refer to her as "the Black Widow?"
How rude to have everyone in the wedding except for her? I would be too insulted to snap right into place. For someone so stubborn and confident, Jane caved really quickly in order to feel included.
She caved faster than Max caved to be part of the Mandonna reunion. And that was fast. Hello, did anyone else notice that he was wearing the mole the whole time?
Derek and Eric's wedding was fun but not the most ah-mah-zing episode we've ever experienced. What do you guys thing? Were you thrilled or bored? Hit the comments and don't forget to check out our favorite Happy Endings quotes from the finale.
