Review by Suzanne 9/22/06
"Happy Hour" is one of those silly sitcoms about single people
having sex and laughing with their friends. These shows seem to come up every
year and most of them don't make it to a second season. I really like the
characters in Happy Hour, but the show could be funnier.
The show is about a guy named Henry whose girlfriend kicked him out, so he moves
in with another guy in the same building, Larry. Henry and Larry are sort of
like the Odd Couple in that they are opposite types. Henry is a naive young guy
from the midwest. He moved to Chicago to be with his high school sweetheart.
Larry is a very jaded guy who likes to drink a lot. He appreciates all the baser
things in life and tries to teach Henry about them, while Henry tires to make
Larry a little more sensitive. They hang out with Larry's friend Amanda and
Larry's former roommate Brad, who is married to Tina. They are an interesting
little bunch, but they really need to have funnier jokes while they build the
relationships and introduce us to the characters.
I hope to keep watching it, but once Smallville and other shows preview, I'm not
sure if I will be able to keep up with it and the other sitcom in that hour on
FOX. I really want to love these shows because TV doesn't have enough good
sitcoms any more, but....they are not great shows yet. Maybe they will develop
