Almost two years after a virus wiped out most of the human race, Phil Miller only wishes for some company, but soon gets more than he bargained for when that company shows up in the form of other survivors.
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
At last. An American sitcom that is actually funny to people from England.
I have watched lots of American sitcoms, and although some actually help time pass in an enjoyable manner, very few since "Friends", "Modern Family" and "The Big Bang Theory" have actually made me giggle. The Mick however has broken this situation. When I watched the pilot I laughed out loud even though I was watching it alone. I then watched it again with members of my family and we all were in stitches with the fantastic storyline, brilliant acting (Ben- why does America have such talented child actors, whilst we in the U.K. get wooden, false ones??? But I'm digressing) and an hilarious script.
I have watched 13 episodes so far and I can't understand why there is not more chatter about this series. Surely more promotion is needed. As someone from the UK I had never seen Miss Olsen before, but have found her to have excellent timing and she is really likable.
This series is fresh, funny and full of quick witted lines. I have scored this series 8 as I can watch an episode more than once and still giggle and notice something I missed previously. Love the fact I now have a series I look forward to watching that fills my house with genuine laughter.
