I still haven't seen the tornado episode, but didn't she say she lost the baby in this one?
I read somewhere that they got a new showrunner.
CBS didn't have a lot of confidence, as they originally had it as a mid season replacement, only had to bump it up to fill the hole left by cancelled We are Men.
I was so annoyed by that! I was so happy for them when I saw that episode.
It was a torrent so I'm not sure where it originated.
I know for a fact that it aired, OTA, cause we thought the same thing.
I don't like the new direction.
Yep. I read an article the other day that talked about how they decided to take advantage of Melissa McCarthy's popularity and make the show more focused on Molly. The reason the season opener seemed so strange is because they completely revamped her character. It's a shame. I can't recall one time where the network messed with a show and actually made it better.
The placard at the end of the show specified that they were revamping it and they hoped you liked the new direction.
Put me in the camp of "not so far". I really dislike the sudden change in Molly and throwing away the school. Sure, it'll likely give Melissa McCarthy more to do, but the show seems to already be suffering for it.
I'm treating it like a pilot. Adjustments need to take their hold just like a pilot does.
(I don't watch the show, but am checking out this thread because they were so hyping the NEW Mike and Molly..)
I actually thought maybe they had even renamed the show.. But I looked at the description of the first new episode, and again, as someone who doesn't actually watch the show, it seems like they're changing her job.. which for a sitcom can be a big thing, if the workplace is a major focus of the show.
The new Molly is kind of a *****. Didn't like her or this episode at all. A shame since I've been with this show since the pilot. Oh well. One less show to follow.
I've always thought Molly was kind of a *****, but entertaining. I'm not sure if I'm going to like the 'new' show, but I'm not ready to give up on it yet. I'm happy they didn't have a baby yet. I'm more interested in the adult relationship at this point. But there has to be some kind of 'issue' for the show to exploit, so guess TPTB decided it would be Molly's job crisis. Maybe they will give the weight issues a break while they concentrate on the job stuff.
Wow. One show where a character goes through a life crisis and you bail?
Yeah. I don't care for the dramedy genre.
Dramedy? Mike and Molly is dramedy?
The season premiere was.
Again. One episode. And if that was dramedy, then every comedy on the air is.
It was like she was on something during the ride along. Totally out of character for Molly. This isn't "The Heat 2"
well, two episodes and the second strike in on the books. One more to go before I say goodbye for good.
I'm trying to be fair, looking at this as a new show and giving it a fresh start. There were a couple of funny moments but they were outnumbered by the many uncomfortable moments.
One thing I've noticed is the violence, Molly punching the woman in the bar in the first EP, dreaming of killing her MIL after nearly coming to blows at her house in the second. Not funny at all.
True, but the network wants it to be. That's the problem.
Totally disagree. Last night felt a lot like a "normal" episode of M&M. Your awareness of newness is heightened. This is NOT the first time Molly dreamt of her mother in law being dead.
