The flying cartoon unicorn isn’t even the wildest part of Syfy’s ‘Happy!’


“The first note we got from Syfy said, ‘Don’t hold back, don’t edit yourselves, go for it,'” recalled Brian Taylor, executive producer of Happy!, during the show’s New York Comic-Con panel. “‘We don’t want you to do something safe. We want dangerous TV. We want something on the edge.”

From here – two full months before the series’ cable debut – it’s too soon to determine whether Happy! will turn out to be truly “dangerous” and “edgy,” or just puckishly obnoxious. But having seen the premiere episode, I can say for certain that it does not hold back.
