"VIDEO: The Happy Endings cast previews their “Big White Lies"


We’re not going to beat around the bush. We promised you a video chat with the Happy Endings cast about what lies their characters tell to get out of hanging out with an old friend who comes to town (guest star Mary Elizabeth Ellis), and now here it is (in the video clip to the left)! ...

Blanket forts are so last season, right? Well, that may be what Abed (Danny Pudi) is thinking when he decides it's time to step it up to the next level and go for the Guinness Book of World Records gold with a new kind of relaxation: the pillow fort!
