The series is based on a Bonkers graphic Novel by Grant Morrison, about a former corrupt cop Nick Sax who becomes a hitman. The character is like a walking version of the movie CRANK!
He’s fueled by self-pity drinking and drugs.
Reading a preview from the TV guide, Meloni describes the show as “Roger Rabbit meets Quentin Tarintino“
The first scene definitely fits the WTF! Had me cracking up. Meloni’s former detective is in a bathroom looking at himself, and well I won’t ruin it.
Haley goes to some ‘Wishies’ (who reminds me of Teletubbies) kids concert with her mother, and invisible friend the blue unicorn HAPPY! Typical kid leaves parents side and I’m sure you can figure out the rest. She is kidnapped by a bad Santa (who at first I thought was swamp thing dressed as a decorated tree.
The Scaramucci’s are scheming against the former cop. Man if half the guys in the mob have the looks of most of these guys…I’m in. Oh darn… already a widow!
How many times did he just (possibly) die in the first 17 minutes?Apparently, his superpower is not staying dead.
Happy gives us a dizzying view of the city in his quest to find someone to help him, help save Hayley. When he finds Sacks in an ambulance after a shot of morphine. Whimsical, wacky and dark as well.
So the 2nd episode is much like the first, a crazy WTF! whirlwind of Happy the unicorn trying to get Sax to help him find Haley (and it’s for sort of twist reason). The show is funny, dray and dark humor included, you are not sure if you want to give Meloni’s Sax a beating or have a beer with him.
Unlike Sax, Skip the drugs, just watch the show! But do enjoy a beer or your favorite beverage
