Happy Endings

Series 1 - 1. Pilot

Review by:
Claire Webb

E4’s second new sitcom of the night lacks the polish of Perfect Couples. It’s about a hapless chap called Dave who is jilted at the altar and reacts the mature way: by spending all day in his dressing gown and downing excessive quantities of gin. When his remorseful fiancée returns, she’s horrified to discover Dave has replaced her with a dippy high-school student he cannot remember seducing. Cue a comically disastrous birthday party as the pair struggle to remain amicable for the sake of their mutual pals.

Neither show is any substitute for Friends, but may help to keep the post-Central Perk blues away.
