1951 - Happy Endings: season one
The strength and magic of this show is it's cast. With the exception of Zachary Knighton, who I find is "fine" in his part, but pales when pitted against the rest of the stand-out ensemble whose comedic timing is like watching an elegant dance. I was already a fan of Elisha Cuthbert and Damon Wayans Jr, and they excel here, but the cast members I wasn't familiar with really blew me away. Eliza Coupe, Casey Wilson, and Adam Pally are magnetic here.
I don't think this is a perfect show, and I'm not super surprised it didn't last given that plot lines sometimes feel a bit repetitious. But the thing that keeps you coming back is the terrific chemistry of the cast - and this one is strong than most. It's on Netflix. Give it a go!
