You should catch some more. That's a tough one to start on.

New half season started up. Good episode. Blake Bortles was prominently involved.

Ted Danson killed it in that roast.


This show is so fucking funny. I love it. It's the first show that's come out on network TV that I have liked since...I don't know.


Happy Endings?


Happy Endings is a Mount Rushmore network comedy for me, along with Arrested Development, 30 Rock, and Seinfeld.

FTT - did Armond White steal your login info, or did you just give it to him?


I don’t know who that is, so he probably catfished me with an alias.

He's a notorious contrarian film critic, who writes things like:

Justice League > The Last Jedi
Zack Snyder’s best moments raise comic book sci-fi to eye-widening, soul-stirring art while the unoriginal, interminable Star Wars series trains kids of various IQs to be mindless consumers.


So Frank is being contrarian by saying 4 really funny shows are his 4 favorite comedies?

No, it seemed like overpraising Happy Endings by putting it in that category, akin to calling Justice League "soul-stiring art". Granted, I've never seen the show, but that's neither here nor there.


Good analysis, then. I feel like it's either here or there. Maybe both. No way to know, really.

I stand by my Happy Endings rating, and I am sorry that those that don’t appreciate that show are dead inside.

I've never really watched the others, but Happy Endings is hilarious and should be viewed annually.

Tough, but fair. I agree with both of these Happy Endings takes.

I just wanted to post that pic. I think I take Eliza Coupe over Elisha Cuthbert. Tough, tough choice.

That's a bad take. Eliza Coupe is a skeleton. This has been confirmed by Yokel in person.

Happy Endings ISNT universally praised? I also just took Frank's Mt Rushmore as a pedestrian ranking and I think I'd have the same 4.

I think the majority of the universe would have had to heard of it first. If you put a gun to my head and asked me to describe the premise of Happy Endings, I'd come up with a mashup of Picket Fences, Pushing Up Daisies, and Freaks and Geeks.

I have not watched a minute of any of those three shows.

I've never seen the show but I'd guess "hornier, funnier Friends" from the advertisements.
