Happy Endings Season 3 Review “Boys II Menorah”

After a week’s break to take in the election, Happy Endings is thankfully back on our screens. In ‘Boys II Menorah’, with two thirds of the gang now happily coupled up, we get to see Alex and Dave navigate their new/old relationship while fan favorites Brad and Jane spend the episode apart.

The inspiration for the titular gag is Max’s new job no one knew existed – a barmitzvah MC.
