For the first 245 episodes or so, Happy Together adapted American scripts virtually beat for beat. And then, like everything that goes on for too long, it spiraled into unprecedented levels of crippling horniness. It appears they hosted a write-in contest where anybody could submit an idea, and a lot of the proposals they got were just boners shrieking into the night. Like, check out these new subplots:
Sveta wants to order a sweater over the internet for her boyfriend, but she accidentally orders Dave, an American who wants to marry her.
Lena wants to surprise Tolia with a sexy dress. It turns out to work fantastically, so Lena gives her dress also to Dasha.
Upon learning that the star stripper and Big'Uns model Masha Bulkin is terminally ill, Gena wants to give her his kidney.
Gena declares sex strike against Dasha until she begins to clean and cook. The next day the house the house glistens and food is on the table. Is Dasha now a perfect wife?
Roma builds a robot cleaner, hoping to turn it into a sex robot.
Gena meets a ghost -- Katya's great-grandmother -- who wants to have sex with him.
For years, whenever a show takes a turn for the absurd worst, we've deemed it a "jumping the shark" moment. But I definitely think there's a case to start saying things like "Man, that show really fucked the ghost grandma."
