We may have a new hero in our midst. Have you seen the trailers for the new Showtime series, Happyish? In case you haven’t, there’s one below.
And in case you’re not familiar with him, Steve Coogan is one funny mo-fo.
Sadly, this series was created specifically for former-fellow-middle-aged man, Philip Seymour Hoffman. His untimely death left the fate of Happyish in doubt for some time. Lucky for us, Coogan took the helm and the show has been resurrected from the ashes.
It’s always easy to poke fun at middle-aged guys. And it’s often quite funny. But, unlike other 2-D representations of middle-aged masculinity like Homer Simpson and Al Bundy, Coogan’s MAM seems to be facing the same sort of struggles you and I face with bravado, bravery and a healthy helping of bumble.
I, for one, am greatly looking forward to it. You?
