Storyline

Mike, a Chicago police officer, meets fourth-grade teacher Molly one day when he speaks at an Overeaters Anonymous meeting and they fall in love, thanks in part to their mutual love of pie and the desire to resist it. Both face challenges in their quest to lose weight -- Molly from her slender sister and mother and Mike at the diner where he frequently eats. But having found each other, they will support each other as they try to achieve their goals, be it weight loss or Molly's decision to quit teaching and pursue her dream as a writer.

Great black and white cast
16 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

I stumbled on this show watching reruns on a channel which shows only reruns and I caught the first two episodes and thought they were extremely funny. What especially attracted me to the show is the fact that the cast is more or less half white and half black . I did not grow up in the States and before I came here , that is how I always imagined it to be. All races living happily together and being friends. Not the reality unfortunately.

After seeing more episodes I saw some stuff I did not care about, Molly becoming a writer and catering to an outrageous famous writer, played by Susan Sarandon. But the show is always saved by all the other players . First of all Mike, stoic Mike who seems improbable as a police officer as you cannot imagine him following any suspect without getting a heart attack, but who makes you wish there would be a police officer like him in your neighborhood. And of course Carl, who is just as lovable and unable to find love. Molly's mother and sister are priceless and I had to look it up where I remember Swoosie Kurtz from. It was the TV series Sisters in the 90s and WOW she has not aged. The always high and always kind sister of Molly is the counterpoint to the always mean mother of Mike and Carl's grandmother balances out with her realism and witty Samuel amuses with his tales of Africa. Vince, Joyce's boyfriend/fiancé/husband is a very well drawn character and very believable, I met a few people like him.

I guess all shows become difficult after a few years. Two and a half men was entertaining for the first year or so and then became repetitive and even the Big Bang Theory struggles . I guess real life is not always so funny and writers run out of good ideas and there is certainly no laugh track running in the background of my life, which is good because I do not like laugh tracks. I do not like to be told when to laugh.
