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.

Trivia

The Season 3 finale "Windy City," originally broadcast in Canada, saw Molly reveal that she was pregnant.

However, it was acknowledged in one episode of season four that Molly miscarried. See more »

Same Old Lame
16 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched episodes 3 & 4. I really tried to like it because I like some of the people in it, but it comes across as a re-wash of the same old sitcoms of days past. The kind of humor that practically says, "Here's a joke...Laugh." instead of being clever and surprising. In fact I really think the jokes themselves are basically re-hashed from other sitcoms....Or at least the set up to them is. I guess there's an audience for this same old sitcom format, but it's not for me.

In a way this basically is an on going problem with most sitcoms as well as most series on what used to be considered the three major networks. There's a serious lack of original programming that's actually original. So many of the shows I've checked out on the big 3 have all come across as some re-wash of some canceled series.The cable networks are grabbing the viewers with much more entertaining programming because they're going with new ideas....Are the programmers at the big three really that blind? Or just ignorant?
