That's ashamed since Modern Family was extremely weak this season, it's like the writers have gotten lazy, while I thought Happy Endings was much much more developed in terms of characters and story lines.
(probably not, I'm guessing MF probably took home the award again?)

Funny Or Die sketch featuring Adam Pally
Funny Or Die sketch featuring Eliza Coupe and Ashley Judd
Funny short starring Casey Wilson and Seth Morris aka Scotty from Happy Endings (her character in this is basically Penny if she was more of a drunken mess)

Nick finds an old tape of himself giving his future self some advice and one of the things he says,
"Be nicer to Coach or he's gonna take off and go move in with a bunch of other white people."

Good news for UK fans of Happy Endings! The unaired episode, KickBall 2: The Kickening, will be airing on Channel 4 on May 17th!
It may not be a popular opinion but I always knew that us colonies breaking away from England was a horrible mistake.

I'm sure we'll hear about an airdate sooner or later on the happywrites twitter. Or maybe Casey will mention it when shes on Kimmel this Tuesday.

Dave's been finally growing on me, the way it took Jane awhile to, at first. He's just so earnest, and lately he's really been making me laugh. His reactions are often really good, too.
Weird note, Casey Wilson is such a beautiful crier. You don't really see many or any of those. Check when Max comes out to his parents, or at the last wedding episode, when Max gives a speech to her about how she's great. I thought she was so beautiful in that scene.
Other than that.... really excited to see the new episode.
Recurring themes on HE:
- mentions of Scottie Pippen
- mentions of Meryl Streep (I believe Brad likes both Mamma Mia! and The Devil Wears Prada?)
- mentions of the Chicago Bears
- Penny Hartz wearing a lot of hearts
- Alex trying to do wordplay and either failing, or doing it well and celebrating
The episode I can watch again and again is "Everybody Loves Grant". I know that this episode is controversial because the characters acted extremely wacky -- but I love it. (I also loved those wacky, absurdist, later seasons of Seinfeld that critics kind of backed away from.) I never get tired of it. I think it's my equivalent to "Jerry's Painting" on Parks and Recreation.

Shes also on Jimmy Kimmel tomorrow night, wondering if an airdate for the extra kickball episode will be mentioned. It's airing in the UK in a few weeks, maybe it'll find it's way online if theres no plans to air it in the US anytime soon.

OK, how about this to pass the time:
Name your favorite one liner of the season from one character. This is not an exchange between characters but just something said by one person.
Mine will probably have to be from Max:
Women be stopping...women be stopping. Women be like "We need to stop" and Men be like "Bitch we need to go!!!"...

"Shut up. I got hit by a cop on a Segway last Halloween. Ugh. I was wearing nothing but dolphin shorts and a feather green boa. Huh. I tried to steal his hat. Cut to. WEEKEND IN CABO. Haha. Then he went back to his Dumb Wife. 'Cause I'm fat."
- Derrick, The Quicksand Girlfriend, 1x05
His insane physicality during the 'line' and delivery are even more beautiful than the line itself.

She was really funny, she always seems to have a lot of embarrassing stories about herself in all her talk show appearances, I kinda get the feeling she isn't too different than Penny in real life, heh. She mentions in part 2 that they're hoping to hear about getting renewed soon. I think ABC announces their pick-ups next week.

ABC has announced several renewals today, and Happy Endings wasn't in the list, but the rest of the Wednesday comedies were - The Middle, Suburgatory and Modern Family.
Not necessarily a bad sign, but not a good one either.
The fact ABC is also allowing KickBall 2 to air in the UK next week is also not good, because they have first-air rights to the series, and in the past, they have relinquished those rights and allowed overseas networks to air them first when it's not coming back.

I think it will be renewed and then moved to another night as they try to launch another big comedy night during the week.

The third year of Penny, I am doing a happy dance! Well deserved show, looking forward to the fall!

Now we only have to hope this is the first season they actually air ALL the episodes upfront, with no strays hanging over to the summer!
