Happy Together cast 

Review of "Happy Together" 10/3/18 by Eva Diaz
airs Mondays 8:30/7:30c on CBS

This show is about an accountant (Damon Wayons, Jr.) and his wife, Claire (Amber Stevens West), a young couple whose marriage has become boring. Then Jake's famous rock star client, Cooper James (Felix Mallard), shows up and asks if he can hide out from the press after a bad break up with his supermodel girlfriend. Cooper misses the life he used to have before he was famous, and he longs for the routine life that Jake and Claire have. He says that he envys them very much. Jake and Claire long for a more exciting life, so Cooper shows them what it's like to be a star by taking them fancy places; in return, they introduce him to toaster strudels.

The cast is funny, but what I don't like is that Jake and Claire seem more like Cooper's parents, despite the fact that they are only ten years older then him. I don't know if the show will ever be able to grow past this one demensional premise it seems stuck in. I hope future shows will be better and show more friendship between the three main characters, rather then a parent-child type of relationship.

I give this show 3 out of 5 stars and will kep watching because the cast is great, and it does sometimes take a few episodes for a cast to gel together.



HAPPY TOGETHER stars Damon Wayans, Jr. in a comedy about a 30-something happily married couple who begin to reconnect with their younger, cooler selves when a young pop star drawn to their super ordinary suburban life unexpectedly moves in with them. Jake, an accountant, and his dream wife, Claire, a restaurant and bar designer, are very comfortably settled into their marriage, enjoying evenings together on the couch watching TV and scheduling time to change their outgoing voicemail message. Their tame routine gets a makeover when Jake’s client, exuberant music superstar Cooper James, arrives on their doorstep looking for refuge from the paparazzi following a high-profile breakup with his girlfriend. Jake and Claire quickly discover there’s no way they can keep up with their world-famous houseguest’s effortlessly cool, fast-paced lifestyle. Cooper, however, enjoys Jake and Claire’s more relaxed way of life, discovering that a touch of ordinary can be extraordinary for all three of them. Stephnie Weir stars as Claire’s mother, Bonnie; Victor Williams stars as Claire’s father, Gerald; and Chris Parnell stars as Cooper’s agent, Wayne.
