Don't be alarmed by the video thumbnail image at the bottom of this post! Really, I hope it entices you. I think a lot of us want to communicate our feelings with this gesture on a frequent basis. I know I do.
If you are looking for a smart, honest television series to binge on - choose "HAPPYish." It's a Showtime series, but I indulged on Hulu. It is hands down one of the best TV series I have watched...EVER.
To start, I related to the main character in so many different ways - even though he is a middle aged male. He works in advertising administration like I do. His professional world and the concerns he carried about what he does mirror my experiences and thoughts exactly. He put into words and actions things I only dream of saying and doing.
Next comes this wonderfully complex man's family. His wife and son. Their family unit made my heart melt. Again, I related to them. And when I picture Joel and I as a family that potentially includes a child, it looks just like them. Real. No bullshit. Living life. Holding on with the tips of their fingers at some points. Most points. But don't we all?
This is a series that I will soon re-watch because it was that good. There were moments in each episode that I thought about later and related back to my own life in some way. This may sound funny, but I learned from it. To me, it was a series of lessons on how to deal with life. To draw from one of the episodes, life is compared to a series of the following: "Fuck. Yay! Fuck. Yay!" How true is that?
Anyways - I'm going to stop blabbing about this show in hopes you watch and enjoy it as much as I did. Watch the trailer below:
