<I>Happy Endings</I>: Free-For-All Character Assessments

In "Sabado Free-Gante," we started to be afraid... and we're not sure if we're more terrified of car-negotiating Jane or the idea that Dave and Alex are moving in together. One thing we are sure of is that Max and Brad should spend a lot more time together, and if that time is spent at addiction meetings and crashing the parties of young children in order to escaped 'roided-out lunatics, so much the better. The one thing we could have lived without entirely was the group Halloween costume, the Jackson 5 (plus Dave as LaToya), but thankfully this show knows when to cut a gag short.

Happy Endings: Cazsh Character Assessments

<I>Happy Endings</I>: Cazsh Character Assessments

In the season premiere, "Cazsh Dummy Spillionaires", the show came back with its particularly well-seasoned blend of fast paced pop culture references, crazy friend antics and some sweet moments (that were quickly soured), which is what this show does best. We'd love it if the gang had spent a bit more time together, instead of scattered into little duos, but we'll take what we can get. If you imagine this our review of each character's finest moment, set to the dulcet tunes of "Ebony and Ivory" as sung by Sinbrad, it will likely increase your enjoyment immensely.

Rake and Other Shows with Vague, Deceptive Titles

<i>Rake</i> and Other Shows with Vague, Deceptive Titles

Despite what the title suggests, Rake the new Greg Kinnear show on Fox, is not about a rake or even a series of ill-placed rakes.. Heck, the name of Kinnear's character -- a lawyer with a bad boy attitude -- isn't even something like Rake Rexington, which is really too bad because then I'd be more inclined to watch this show. (His character's name is actually Keegan Deaneā€¦ BORING.) Instead, the title here presumably refers to the "rakehell" characterization in literature ("An immoral or dissolute person"? Check!), as well as the term "rake" in poker (you see, the guy also gambles in this show). Sorry to bum you out, leaf-raking enthusiast, it looks like you'll have to wait a little bit longer. But don't feel bad about being duped by the vague title, because over the past few years that's become something of a trend on television. We've picked a few shows (including some upcoming new ones designed to trick us) with vague, deceptive titles, what they really meant, and what we actually want them to mean.
