Happy! Season 1 Finale Recap: “New Frontiers of Suck”

Posted by February 5, 2018 Comment

Welcome to Bleeding Cool’s final weekly reminder recap for Syfy‘s  Happy! (for this season, anyway) as we take a look back at the season finale, ‘I Am the Future’:

Happy! s01e08 “I Am the Future”: With Christmas approaching, Sax and Happy are locked in a climatic confrontation to rescue Hailey from Very Bad Santa’s lair; Merry sets out to save Amanda from a far more powerful foe.

So our Happy! live-blogs and recaps are less “formal reviews” and more of a review/recap hybrid (a “rev-ap”-type thing): We’re going to cover the nitty and the gritty of the episode, along with some of our thoughts on what worked and what should’ve be left untouched by human hands. If you’re not familiar with the graphic novel series, then  definitely keep that in mind as you keep reading or watching. If you know what’s coming, then spoilers probably aren’t going to be a big deal for you; but there may be some discussion (translation: rants) of either subtle changes or drastic differences that you might want to avoid until you see them for yourself.

For a look back at our live blog of ‘I Am the Future’, feel free to make your way here.
