Happy!

Yeah, the stripper tells Nick the story of it in the third episode. His father was a department store Santa that touched kids when they sat on his lap. That's why he hanged himself in the store.

That's right.  Thanks for the reminder.

This show was super bizarre, and I only found out about it near the end of the season, but I am super glad I discovered it. So dark and weird, but also sweet, in a demented way. I was sad that Haley had to say goodbye to Happy, but I love that Happy will be Nicks new imaginary friend! I wonder if Haley will find out? 

I actually ended up feeling bad for Bad Santa. he was a monster, but he was clearly deeply disturbed, and his past was just awful. That being said, I still cheered when Nick ended him. Also, those lobotomized "kids"...brrrr. 

Bring on season 2!

I watched this right after seeing the first Altered Carbon - and I actually think this made a lot more sense to me! I am not completely convinced that I want to continue watching it. But...there were parts I really liked, and the humour was nice and quirky. Good to see Christopher Meloni again.

I just found this on Netflix, and I am happy this thread is here, because Chrisopher Meloni makes this show. With the wrong cast I could imagine it being terrible, but he is excellent.

Graphic novels always portray a violent, bloody but darkly humorous world. I had no idea what this was when I started and I'm very surprised it came out of the Syfy Channel, which seems to be specialising in boring, safe and pointless these days (they cancelled Expanse, man!).

I kind of loved every gory minute of it.

I knew the voice of the "other girl" that Hailey was talking to didn't sound right so I was not at all surprised that it was Bad Santa himself.

The plot thickens! So Merry broke up Nick's marriage to Amanda.

And apparently played a major role in destroying his career and his life, if Blue is to be believed.

I thought they were saying she loved a man who destroyed his marriage and his career, not that she destroyed them.

Thankfully I read about the baby in the microwave scene so I was able to be "otherwise engaged" for that scene. I think I might need to read the comments before every episode from now on.

I think the Squishies or whatever the hell they are are a big part of it. When Amanda and Hailey were talking about them on the way to the show in the pilot, Amanda asked which one Happy liked the best and Hailey said Happy didn't like them because he thought they were creepy. Then the fake-kidnapped girl had one in her room. 

I had totally forgotten about the whole 'demon password' thing. Which is weird since that was only last episode. But I agree.

TV News Roundup: Ann-Margret Joins ‘Happy!’ Season 2 at Syfy

Syfy’s “Happy!” has added Ann-Margret (“Ray Donovan”) to its upcoming second season, and Bryce Lorenzo (“Orange is the New Black”) and Christopher Fitzgerald (“Godless”) have been upped to series regulars. Ann-Margret will play the recurring role of Bebe Debarge, a former siren of stage and screen. Lorenzo returns as Nick Sax’s (Christopher Meloni) estranged daughter, and Fitzgerald is reprising his role as Sonny Shine, a world-renowned children’s entertainer with a dark past and an even darker present. The series follows Sax, a hitman who befriends an imaginary winged horse named Happy (Patton Oswalt). A premiere date for Season 2 has not yet been announced.

Just started this show and it's fantastic. I was worried Patton Oswald would drive me to distraction, but it's been a perfect blend. I'm not familiar with the comics at all, but I do like the surreal vibe.

Merry is hard to like, but I can't blame her for breaking up the marriage. Sax seems like a walking disaster and I'd definitely place the majority of the blame on him. It was good of Merry to help Amanda, though - she definitely could have steered clear. I think I missed what happened that Merry was in the Scarmucci's pocket. I know her mother was threatened, but there has to be more to it, right?

Also, Meloni is 57 years old and looks like he could walk on a football field and mow some bodies down,

We got a second season promo and a premiere date for season two today!

Syfy’s Happy! is returning just in time to – as one of the characters insists in this new trailer – make Easter great again. The network has set March 27 for the Season 2 premiere.

In its second season, the dark comedy based on the irreverent graphic novel of the same name finds alcoholic ex-cop turned hit man Nick Sax (Christopher Meloni) and his bizarre imaginary kinda-unicorn-looking pal Happy (voiced by Patton Oswalt) on the trail of a child kidnapping ring. Or something along those lines – nothing is ever quite what it seems on this show.
