Welcome to Happy! Hype day six! At this point, we are a mere 2 nights away from the premiere of TV’s hottest (and most f’ed up show) Happy! Wednesday December 6th at 10/9c on Syfy, Christmas comes early – because Happy! is the best gift anyone will get this holiday season. So if you’ve read, love the graphic novel and are already a Happy! mega-fan, or if this is your first time hearing of it, after Wednesday everyone will be begging for more Happy!.
I was lucky enough to chat with the show-runner, Patrick MacManus, and I asked him why audiences should tune into the show, check out his response below and then set your DVR / alarm clock to remind you of the genius/beauty that is Happy! I’ve got a newest teaser trailer from Happy! and also a brief interview with star, Christopher Meloni (Nick Sax) from San Diego Comic Con with Syfy Wire, just for you my fellow #SeeHappy fans!
TibS: With Happy! airing next week (Wednesday the 6th at 10/9c on Syfy) how would you describe the show to someone who has either hasn’t heard about Happy! yet or is on the fence about tuning in?
Patrick MacManus: Whatever your preconceived notions are about Happy!… you haven’t got a clue what you’re actually in store for. I truly mean that, I’ve said to people time and again, that if you give it 3 episodes, whatever your preconceived notions might be, that it’s an animated live-action so it must be silly or that it’ll just be soft-core humor, give us to episode 3. Our episode three the entire story turns on its’ head; the level and depths of the characters, the depth of the story-telling, and the degree to which we are exploring, (and I mean this I’m not just blowing smoke) the human condition within the world that we all live in as seen through Sax’s eyes, it’s a visceral gut punch. I don’t think that people will see it coming when they get through just episodes one and two. The whole show turns in episode three. People will have their preconceived notions as to what the show is, but if they actually tune in and watch they will I think be amazed to what it actually has going for it.
I’ll also be over on Twitter come Wednesday night, throwing Happy! one hell of a Twitter Welcome party for Happy! So be sure to follow their official social media and me too! What are your thoughts so far about Happy! ? What are you most excited for? Have you read the graphic novel? I’m really excited to geek out over this show with you, so please drop me a comment below. Or, find me on social media and let’s nerd out!
