FOR THE HOPELESS HUMOROUS ROMANTICS
By Bliss Ndapasowa
Women have been widely considered as naturally patient and tender human beings who accept the pace set by men in their lives.
Well Annie has had enough!
This summer a humorous turbulent but stable romantic relationship has been brought to our tv screens as creator and producer of Happy Endings, David Caspe, presents to us a brand new series ‘Marry Me’.
The american television sitcom features a longtime couple Annie (Casey Wilson) and Jake (Ken Marino) and their rather bumpy road to marriage.
We are firstly introduced to dramatic and fireball Annie who considers six years as a long enough wait for a well deserved proposal from her beau Jake.
After not receiving a proposal during their romantic vacation, Annie ruins the actual moment as she accuses Jake of being a commitment coward just as he was about to propose and insults everyone close to them, who happens to be waiting in the next room, during her rampage.
Hilarity ensues as the couple continues to face several choppy proposals and stormy predicaments as Jake loses his job.
To add to the drama are Annie’s parents The Kevins, a gay couple who named their only daughter after a broadway show, her best friend Dennah, a pre-school teacher who is not keen on marriage and Jake’s friend Gil who sells hair loss products and is failing to cope with a recent divorce.
Sony Pictures is bringing to us another sitcom we can fall in love with after the ‘Happy Endings’ finale.
The show is characterised by language, sexual jokes and a simply talented pair supported by a great cast.
The premise introduces the audience to all the vital characters thus keeping them in the loop.
It is a basic tail of how a couple experiences its worst but still want to be together- a perfect flick for all the hopeless romantics out there.
‘Marry Me’ has since been compared to ‘Mad About You’ therefore guaranteeing a great deal of entertainment.
Knowing David Caspe’s previous work, the show can be expected to blossom further and rates a 7/10.
