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.

Jumped the Shark
18 November 2013 | by (TV Land) – See all my reviews

What started out as a nice RomCom jumped the shark. Not sure who decided to do the "NEW Mike & Molly" but the new stinks. It used to be an enjoyable show about a couple who just happen to be overweight and their quirky friends and relatives. Now it's about a angry fat woman who just keeps doing more outrageous things in her desire for attention. Hey, writers did you notice how NONE of Melissa's movies have been anywhere near blockbusters? Might be a clue.

In the past, there were some great, heart-touching episodes with the others being fair-to-middling but still OK. The key to all of the great episodes were the warmth and genuine affection shown by the characters. The epitome of this was the episode "The Princess and the Troll", some serious issues were dealt with a soft but still humorous touch. The key was that we were NOT laughing AT the character or actor nor even WITH the character. But, rather, the weirdness that accompanies life which makes us involuntarily laugh even when life is not funny. The new show is exactly the opposite. We are expected to laugh at a outrageous fat woman precisely because she is an outrageous fat woman. Now, the show is all about Melissa McCarthy with WAY too many instances of her trying to channel Charlie Chaplin. This isn't even about Molly, but about Melissa. But she's definitely no Charlie and completely misses his sublime ability to inject a genuine story into his antics.
