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

Excellent!
6 July 2015 | by anav-57696See all my reviews

Probably the best shows I've watched in the last few years. An excellent dark satirical comedy-drama where the main characters are experiencing different issues, all very relatable, as far as I am concerned ! This is a show where a clever mix or imaginary worlds collide with the reality of life, and where technology, corporate America and the idealist views, highlight the terrible state in which most of us actually live….in a society dominated by superficiality, greed and ignorance. If some of the personal challenges , Thom and Lee face, might not be relevant to everyone, the work/office ones are definitely easy to appreciate! If you're Happy and You Know It - watch Happyish and you might start asking yourself a few questions…
