MIKE & MOLLY is a love story. It's about two people, ordinary yet extraordinary, who have always protected themselves and relied on their ability to laugh through life. Now, with the help of each other – and the weight management support group where they met – they are learning to open up and trust one another. But falling in love is no easy task, especially when surrounded by friends and family who are just a little too close – and a little too opinionated. From the hilarious minds of Two and a Half Men's Mark Roberts and Chuck Lorre, this multi-camera romantic comedy gets down to the nitty gritty of what it means for Mike, an affable police officer, and Molly, a smart and cheerful school teacher, to start a relationship amongst all the disruptions and chaos that befall two good-natured people just trying to find a little slice of happiness.]]>
These characters, along with Mike's partner Carl (Reno Wilson), and Samuel (Nyambi Nyambi), who works at the restaurant where they hang out, would be unbearable if the writing weren't so smart and funny. The one-liners lean toward the raunchy: gay jokes, penis and copulation jokes, fat jokes… lots of fat jokes. But many of them are out-and-out hilarious, and while the practice of including a real message amidst all the gags (accept yourself and appreciate one another's differences, stay honest even when it's uncomfortable, and so on) is sitcom formulaic, it works. --Sam Graham

Every performer on M&M does a wonderful job at comedic acting, an extremely challenging task, and I completely agree with Melissa McCarthy's Emmy win for her portrayal of the female lead, Molly Flynn, a plus-sized fourth-grade teacher living with her boozy mother Joyce (Swoosie Kurtz) and oversexed younger sister Victoria (Katy Mixon). But so many of the actors in this show deserve an Emmy, in my own estimation, that I won't be surprised if in the future other names from the show receive Emmy nominations and/or wins as well.
Season 2 opened on September 26, 2011, and the season finale airs on May 14, 2012. The producer Chuck Lorre also produces the top-rated comedy, Two and a Half Men, which M&M follows on CBS. This season offers 23 episodes, one less than last season, but still far more than almost any show on broadcast TV for many years now, where 6-13 shows per season seems to be the norm these days.Read more ›
The writing is outstanding and hope that Season 3 continues on the same path.
Mike and Molly meet at an Overeaters Anonymous meeting were they both are trying to lose weight. After their initial first meeting they're having second thoughts about starting a relationship, but with some pushing from family and friends they decide to give love a chance.
Not only are Melissa McCarthy (Molly) & Billy Gardell (Mike) characters hilarious, but I just love Molly's sister Victoria, and her mother Joyce. Every character on this show brings something extra special, and that's what keeps me laughing, and tuning in every week. The writers of this show are comedic Gods. I hope this show continues for many, more seasons to come!

This show is seriously funny. I especially like that the main characters are not Hollywood model perfect people; giving a realistic insight on real people.Published 3 months ago by Physics 101
