Reasons Why You Need To Watch Happy Endings

So, last year, under the influence of narcotic infused cough syrup and antibiotics, I wrote a post trying to convince my best friend and confidant Emerald to start watching Arrow. She freaked, had a boygasm and said she’d watch the show; she never did. I’ve also told her to watch GIRLS (approx. 2 years), The Mindy Project (January of this year), Game of Thrones (think she started it but never got passed S1 E2), Breaking Bad (don’t think I even told her but now I am), Heathers (cause it was Mean Girls before Mean Girls) and Buffy the Vampire Slayer (to which said, gross, no). However, she did watch Midnight In Paris…only after I bought her the DVD and then had to continuously ask her if she saw it yet.

Other people would have given up, other people would not be creating a post like this and other people would not be as obsessive as me but I ain’t no quitter, I’m a swallower. Ooo, I said that wrong.

In addition, to all those shows that I’ve already told her to watch, I’m adding a new one: Happy Endings.

Happy Endings was one of the best shows on TV, that no one watched. Which is why it ended up being cancelled by ABC in 2013. It still managed to last 3 glorious and hilarious seasons, full of ah-ma-zing moments and pop culture references that come at you a line a minute.

Emerald, and really just anyone reading this post, please, watch Happy Endings. It’s available on Netflix in Canada. Other countries in the world, I’m sure it’s available on DVD, iTunes, Amazon Prime (maybe), Hulu (maybe) and Roku (not sure if I made this one up).
