What’s This TV Show About?
A comedic, fantastical Syfy crime drama, Happy! stars Christopher Meloni with Patton Oswalt (voice), Lili Mirojnick, Joseph Reitman, Medina Senghore, Ritchie Coster, and Patrick Fischler. The first season cast also includes Debi Mazar, Bryce Lorenzo, Ren Colley, Alexander Jameson, Benjamin Snyder, Catherine LeFrere, and Michael Maize. Happy! centers on a former cop, Nick Sax (Meloni). Now a hitman more or less on the skids, Nick finds himself unmoored in a treacherous world full of murder and meaningless hook-ups. One day though, his drunken, depressing existence is turned upside down by Happy (Oswalt), an imaginary unicorn, who is out to save the day.
Season One Ratings
Although it premiered with great ratings for a Syfy TV series, the numbers have fallen quite a bit in subsequent weeks. Flying blind, while I’m not averse to a little horse unicorn flesh, or that of a well-marinated detective/hitman, I think Happy! will score a second season renewal. It has something of a built-in audience, thanks to the Grant Morrison and Darick Robertson graphic novel. That said, I reserve the right to change my mind, should it fail to draw a respectable audience. For now, I’ll keep an eye on the Nielsens and update this page with breaking developments.
