Happy Endings: P&P Romance Factory

Happy Endings is one of the most underrated shows on television today.  I am concerned for its fourth season.  It is up against New Girl on Tuesdays, which isn't helping its ratings.  It is one of my favorite shows, and I like checking in with this group of best friends in Chicago every week.  I absolutely died with the Real World spoof a few weeks ago, that episode in particular was a genius move for this show.

In this episode, Penny is in yet another awkward dating situation because she is not with Dave.  Alex and Dave try to help out Max with feeling self-conscious about high fiving and fist pumping; while Brad and Jane continue to find comfort in their awesome  and quirky marriage. There were some great one liners and a One Tree Hill reference, so I cannot complain about that.

I think the show needs to go back to the Penny and Dave romance, we haven't seen it too much in a while.  That storyline is a strong point for the show, it really made me invested in the characters.  Also Penny's relationship with Max was highlight in the show where the jokes are strong, but it seems listless in the two episodes. And Alex has become terribly annoying as Dave's girlfriend again.
