    Happy Endings "Ordinary Extraordinary Love" Review: The Man Show

    Despite Happy Endings having some of the funniest female cast members on TV, this episode was all about the men discovering themselves.

  • Episode Summary

    Alex and Penny see a way to use the press when a pop star buys a dress from Alex's shop. While Max has an identity crisis, Dave and Brad attempt to fix some things around the house.

      The Brad and Dave storyline was okay. The Penny and Alex one really didn't work for me, even if there were some good Penny moments throughout.

      In the second installment of the second half of the third season (this could have been simplified) we got a lot more of what made Happy Endings one of the best sitcoms on tv. While I still don't agree with splitting up the cast like they did last week, the pairs this week seemed to have a lot more chemistry than the ones last week (not to mention a lot more Alex and Max). It's really hard for me to pick a favorite plot line for this installment as they were all so good and like their characters. Max and Jane searching for Max's gay spirit, Alex and Penny ruining and then fixing a young celeb's love life (all while being extremely selfish), and Dave and Brad trying to install a light switch were all highlights amongst a highlight filled season. The only thing I still wish was more interconnectivity between stories.

      Side note: I have some electrician friends who I've seen install a light dimmer before... It took them all of 5 minutes to get the job done. It made the Dave and Brad story all the better.moreless

      • Alex: OK, let's do this. What's my gay category?
        Derrick: OK, you're a twink, but I've seen you eat so you're a sloppy twink, which is not as much fun as it sounds. Penny, you drink a lot, you are really loud and you have a lot of embarrassing stories about dating. Bitch, you are a hag.
        Penny: But I used to be a beard so I take that as a win.
        Jane: I thought I was a hag.
        Derrick: No, you're a top, plain and simple.
        Jane: Damn right I am.
        Dave: Oh, I know what I am. I'm a scruffy power bottom because I have a goatee and I do lots of glute exercises.
        Derrick: Your reasoning is wrong but your conclusion is correct.
        Brad: Do me, do me.
        Derrick: Oh, would that I could Would that I freaking could.
