Happy! (SyFy) – Premieres 6th December – Renewed
Based on the graphic novel of the same name this follows former detective Nick Sax, who after leaving the force has become a hitman with multiple health issues and love of booze and drugs.
As Nick works on a hit of the offspring of a mafia don, he ends up hospitalised after finding out the password for some information that the whole criminal underworld would want. During that time a girl is kidnapped by a dubious chap in Santa outfit. So the girl sends her imaginary friend, a blue winged unicorn called Happy, off to find help.
After waking in the hospital, Happy begins to try and convince Nick that he’s not a hallucination and he has to help in finding the kid. All the while Nick is fighting off a torrent of ne’er do wells that are out to kill him.
The show is like the bastard offspring of Crank and Who Framed Roger Rabbit, all mixed with the over the top violence of Blood Drive. It’s all completely ridiculous and very watchable.
