Critic Consensus: Happy! certainly isn't for everyone, but its appealingly oddball concept and strong performances from Chris Meloni and Patton Oswalt make for a gritty, dark comedy with definite -- albeit unusual -- appeal.

Comic-turned-ultraviolent dark comedy series pushes limits.
If you're able to view Happy! mainly as an exercise in style and attitude, with a brilliant lead performance, you'll find a lot to admire here.
The interplay between Meloni and Oswalt is surprisingly delightful for a relationship created entirely in post-production, and the show is careful to never overplay the Happy card.
The power of the metaphor doesn't quite come through. Instead it's just a jumble of ghastly villains and bloody skirmishes that all feel cribbed from grittier, better stories.
... Happy! is best recommended to those who can't get enough of Meloni chewing the scenery, however sordid.
