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
The Mick is the second most promising new comedy of 2017, after Santa Clarita Diet, which I give a clear 10.
They both thrive on being wildly inappropriate, to a degree where you either can't help laughing out loud, because it all is so outrageous, or get in touch with your inner prude.
Personally, I find it hilarious.
Where The Mick falls a little short is, that it can at times get too focused on creating a happy or moral ending to an episode.... stuff is forgotten or forgiven a little too easily.... and it seems like they are rushing to create harmony amongst the cast during the first season, rather than leaving room for long term development.
But, that is something the writers can tighten up for the next season - I have no doubt it should be renewed.
The cast is really good, albeit, I wonder what they are going to do with a 25 year old playing an 18 year old..... if the show catches on ;)
