When the family matriarch, great grandma Rita, turns 100, Mickey and the crew crash the party. But when senile Rita mistakes Mickey for her best friend (and secret lover) from her youth, things take ...
The Mick centers on Mackenzie "Mickey" Murphy (Olson), a hard-living, foul-mouthed, cigarette-smoking woman who moves to affluent Greenwich, CT to raise the spoiled kids of her wealthy sister who has fled the country to avoid a federal indictment. She quickly learns what the rest of us already know - other people's children are awful.Written by
I'm a huge It's Always Sunny fan and I regarded both The Mick and A.P. Bio with ambivalence. These aren not one-off movies that the actors could do and then forget about - they could be permanent jobs.
I gave The Mick a shot and it grabbed me instantly. It's very funny, very smart. Some see it as a flaw that the character Olson plays is almost exactly Di from Sunny, but I see that as a plus... but that's just me.
It's a real comedy, not a light-hearted drama. It's based around laughs. But there are no canned laughs.
I'm still in season 1, but I give it a 9/10 so far.
