Storyline

On his birthday, Thom Payne gets the gift of insignificance and also a new boss. He suspects his ED pills are interfering with his anti-depressants, leaving him with neither happiness nor... happiness. In a culture that reveres youth - a culture he helped create - Thom needs to figure out what his purpose is now that he's halfway to death and nobody cares what he thinks. Because in a world where any Kardashian is trending up, perhaps the wise among us would heartily embrace trending down. Written by Showtime

The story of my life
15 July 2015 | by (Russia) – See all my reviews

It seems that me and my wife are not alone in our thoughts and judgments about life these days :) I've been a director of advertising and PR for many years and when I became full of it I chose to be a videographer.

When I watching "Happyish" it is like meeting a good old friend. Together you can joke on any topic without any tolerance. You can be honest to each other and you feel mutual understanding. Every episode asking what is our life, what makes us happy or much more often unhappy? What is more important job or family? And why so many morons around? :)

I think the second name of "Happyish" should be "Wit works woe" or "The Mischief of Being Clever".

Great job done in scenario, acting, casting, shooting, lighting, props etc... I hope to see many seasons of this splendid story!
