Mike & Molly Episode Recap: "Pilot"


I feel like I'd follow Melissa McCarthy to the ends of the earth - and not just in terms of television watching. I first discovered her in a bit part when she stole the scene she was in with Scott Wolf (or was it Jay Mohr?) in a little movie called Go. She didn't come back onto my radar until Gilmore Girls, but what a great way to make a return. Her adorable and somewhat neurotic and accident-prone Sookie St. James was a revelation. Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel weren't half bad either. Kidding, kidding. They were awesome. I loved that show. Next she spent some time with Christina Applegate on Samantha Who? and now she's where she belongs: in a lead role. It's about time.


I know a lot has been made of the fact that two plus-size people are leads here, but I don't really want to focus on that. Yes, Mike and Molly meet at an Overeaters Anonymous meeting. Yes, they have very serious issues with food. But they're also two lonely people looking for love. They haven't given up on themselves or others and I think there's something very sweet in that.
