Happy! (Or: Crank: The Television Series) on Syfy

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hadn't heard anything about this show until The AV Club did a review for it. Two things stuck out that made me give the pilot a go: It stars Christipher Meloni, and the show is written by Brian Taylor, one half of the Taylor/Neveldine crew.

All I knew about it going in is that it's an adaptation of a Grant Morrison comic, but man it's all kind of crazy. Meloni plays a hitman (who is basically a more grittied version of the character Meloni plays in Wet Hot American Summer) who is tasked to save a little girl from an evil, crack smoking Santa Clause--by the girl's imaginary friend, Happy (voiced by Patton Oswald)

Yeah.

And with Taylor's attachment, this looks like a TV version of Crank, featuring the same kinetic energy found in both films and features one giant homage to the hospital sequence in the original Crank film.
