I really hope you’re watching “Happy Endings.” And if you’re not, I won’t scold, but I will say you’re missing a comedy that made me laugh ’til I cried last night.
We are in a mind-melting Golden Age when it comes to half-hour scripted programs these days. I don’t want to label them all comedies, because worthwhile shows clocking in at under 30 minutes are all over the comedy-drama-whatever map these days. All I do know is that there are at least two dozen half-hour shows of extremely varying flavors that are well worth your time these days.
In that eclectic half-hour realm, “Happy Endings” is on the gut-busting end of the spectrum, and thank goodness for that. I can’t say there are many comedies that make me laugh so hard that I have to pause the DVR to wipe tears from my eyes as the rudely awakened cats on the couch next to me look on with sleepy concern, but last night’s “Happy Endings” double-shot did just that.
