“Happy Endings” Creator Dishes On That Whole “Dave And Penny Thing”

“I don’t think we would have done the Dave and Penny thing. Our show is not at all a soap opera. Some of these other comedies are able to go a little more melodramatic than I ever liked, and any time we tried to do it, sometimes it felt a little false. I don’t think anyone really wanted to see Dave have to date his ex-fiancée’s best friend. There’s just something about that that’s kind of mean. I didn’t want to have to have Penny and Alex hate each other for five episodes.”

– David Caspe, creator of my favorite sitcom that barely got a damn chance, “Happy Endings,” discussed a few unresolved plot points in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that I just had to share. In addition to putting an end to speculation about the future of Dave and Penny’s flirtations, Caspe also revealed that Jane and Brad were going to have a baby. Can you imagine Jane as a new mom?!?! Siiiiiiigh. “Happy Endings,” you were taken from us much too soon. [EW]
