One Big Happy - S01E06

Comedy
 

Best friends Lizzy and Luke are like family. As kids, they saw each other's parents go through divorce and have ever since formed an inseparable bond. Now, all grown up and still single, they've decided to start a family of their own, but in a non-traditional way. Lizzy, who is a lesbian, wants to raise a child with Luke by her side. Then one night, Luke falls for Prudence, a free-spirited British girl who's due to go back to England in a matter of days. Then, just as Lizzy discovers that she's actually pregnant, Luke announces that he and Prudence have gotten married and in an instant - a different kind of family is born.

  • Mekeisha Madden Toby

    [A] thoughtfully lighthearted and frothy comedy.

    The Wrap Full Review
  • Nancy DeWolf Smith

    Some occasional tastelessness aside--ranging from tired pregnancy-test urination jokes to a few gags that are unprintable--One Big Happy evolves into something a cut above the usual fare. It is brightly written, and tender at heart. Most of all, it is endowed with a great ensemble cast.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Ed Bark

    There also are some intriguing twists as these beats go on. One Big Happy may be entirely sitcom-y but it’s not thoroughly predictable.

    Uncle Barky Full Review
  • Mark A. Perigard

    One Big Happy is light and forgettable.

    Boston Herald Full Review
  • Erik Adams

    Unfortunately for One Big Happy, the only early dates it can accurately hit are those of a bygone era, one whose fortunes NBC is unlikely to rediscover anytime soon.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Keith Uhlich

    Good as the actors are, though, the show’s run-of-the-mill plotting doesn’t do it--or its long-term prospects--any favors.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Verne Gay

    One Big Happy is just... conventional.

    Newsday Full Review
  • Mary McNamara

    Feldman and her writers are so obsessed with making One Big Happy socially righteous--Lizzy announces her gayness with the frequency of an undercover straight person--that they forgot to give it any heart.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Gail Pennington

    One Big Happy isn't fresh or funny enough to transcend its message.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Dan Fienberg

    One Big Happy gets worse and less funny as it goes.

    Hitfix Full Review
  • Kevin Fallon

    If there’s a milestone achieved by One Big Happy, it’s that we’ve reached the point where shows spotlighting gay characters, relationships, and issues can finally be as lazy, occasionally offensive, and unfunny as shows about straight people have been for decades now.

    The Daily Beast Full Review
  • Hank Stuever

    There’s very little here to dissect or think about or, least of all, laugh at.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Ellen Gray

    It's not an unpromising premise and Cuthbert's character, a control freak who's had trouble with romance, isn't stereotypical. But Luke's written as less than bright and Prudence as downright cartoonish.

    Philadelphia Daily News Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    One Big Happy is one of those calculated illusions--a series that tries to appear forward-thinking and edgy by tackling the evolving definition of family and parenting, only to filter those elements through a musty sitcom template that predates “Ellen” coming out of the closet.

    Variety Full Review
  • Josh Bell

    One Big Happy is a generic, low-rent sitcom with only one thing setting it apart--and that one thing, thankfully, is no longer all that remarkable.

    Las Vegas Weekly Full Review
  • Robert Bianco

    An amateurish bungle of a comedy.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Ken Tucker

    One Big Happy is a loud, frantic sitcom so eager to please, you may want to avert your eyes.

    Yahoo TV Full Review
  • Joanne Ostrow

    If the script by Liz Feldman (“Two Broke Girls”) were less tedious, if the acting by Cuthbert were bearable, if the whole enterprise were based on more than one joke... it might’ve worked.

    Denver Post Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    Obvious, dumb and mostly unfunny, One Big Happy is an embarrassment for all involved.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Neil Genzlinger

    An intelligence-insulting sitcom.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • David Wiegand

    There’s nothing funny about One Big Happy, the performances are wooden and irritating, the setup is completely phony, and that’s about all the energy I have to expend on what is just one big pile of something, but it definitely isn’t Happy.
