    Anyone else watching this?  New series on Netflix, I’m a couple of episodes in.

    It starts off as a typical gritty action series, very dark, about hard-boiled ex-detective turned hitman.  Then a young girl gets abducted, he gets shot, and when he comes round he start seeing the girl’s imaginary friend – a flying blue cartoon unicorn.  It’s like Breaking Bad crossed with Roger Rabbit.  I’m properly enjoying it so far, it’s stark raving genius.  Recommended.

    My flatmate has a rare talent of finding the weirdest stuff to watch – Happy! is a real good bit of twisted entertainment!! Was a little surprised at how violent it gets

    Only watched the first episode to see if I should add the series to my list for later viewing. I did, but it’s a long list, more is getting added than I can seem to get through.

    Thanks, Cougar – hadn’t heard that this comic got adapted, so will D/L to fit in between Preacher & Better Call Saul.

    Bat fish mental bit of TV. Loved it!

    Watched a couple of episodes. Some parts of it require suspension of disbelief. The escape from the hospital seemed to go a bit too smoothly considering the odds, for instance. Amusing though, especially the bit where he kills all those people while spouting witty one-liners.

    Like the bits with the imaginary friends? 😁 😁

    Well, that’s the premise of the show, so, within that universe the imaginary friend makes sense. Being off your face on drugs after being shot, then drinking a pot of coffee and fighting off an army of bad guys is a bit hard for me to believe though.

    Also, if you like the mad ultraviolence kind of thing, Preacher might appeal. If anything, even crazier than Happy!

    The pebble dashed wall plus face scene made me cringe a little, which is tough given how generally desensitised I am!

    I take your point, as it is set in “the real world”. But as it’s taken from a comic book anything goes??

    The imaginary friends stuff, I guess, can be viewed as magic realism.

    Studio pitch: “it’s Harvey meets Deadpool”?

    Studio pitch: “it’s Harvey meets Deadpool”?

    I’ve been describing it as an 18 Cert “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” (similar to the OP’s decription)

    Watched five this week. Me and Mrs. S are hooked. It’s fanbleedintastic!
