    He lost some weight over the summer! He used to be all chins and belly, now he's damn near healthy looking.

    Certainly when compared to the two leads and the newer guy at the poker table!

    The "newer guy at the poker table" has been a recurring character. He dated Molly's sister, and meet Mike and Molly at OA

    Yes, I remember the date episode but I forgot the guys name so just referred to him as newer guy.

    My wife and I were catching up on this over the weekend. We had watched two of this season's shows earlier and watched another one. At the end, my wife said "You know, this show just isn't very good any more."

    I guess we will continue recording them, but might be out on it pretty soon if it doesn't improve.

    It really did take a very bad turn this season. I, also, continue to hang in there and hope they get back on track. This was such a great show. I miss the other great characters, even Mike's mother and the dog. I miss more of Carl, and I absolutely love Molly's mother and sister together.

    The stepfather always rather creeped me out and, while I'm on the subject, have I had some sort of brain lapse? I don't even remember them getting married at all. I just remember that he moved in and the next thing I knew, they were married.

    This weeks episode wasn't too bad for a change. Carl, the sister, Mother in law and Father in law were in it. There were some funny spots. I hope the rest of this season is more like this one.

    Looks like they have toned down Molly quite a bit over the last few episodes.

    Or, as some if us maintained, she was going through a change of career and her reactions were within character and others were overreacting to an episode or two.

    I do not think it was an over reaction.
    It certainly appeared on the surface they had decided to take the show in a whole new direction focusing on Molly and dissing the supporting cast.

    That was not the case in the 2014 episodes and I think it got better as the season went along - and by better, I mean returned to its roots.

    Still wish they would bring back the old opening credits.:cool:

    Sorry I am late to the party, I just got to Season 4. I am here now to vent. WHAT THE HELL!?!?!?!?! Leave it up to an executive to take something great, "fix it", and turn it into garbage. Granted I am only one episode in, but I think I'm done. You can't just take an entire season and act like it didn't happen. Sorry, that isn't how it works. Why should I get invested in this new show? How do I know that Season 5 will not turn into a show about a single lady named Molly who just moved to the big city from the country? This new direction is an insult to the viewers who spent 3 seasons falling in love with characters, and we finally get to the apex of the whole series in the S3 finale just to have it erased like none of it ever happened in the opening of S4. Unreal. I can't think of any other show in the history of television that "rebooted" itself after three successful seasons.

    Also, it is very uncool to not come out with the news that Molly isn't pregnant from the opening scene. The last thing we hear she is pregnant, next thing we know she is rolling out of windows and getting drunk. I thought I lost my mind or watched them out of order for a second there.

    Ya I don't know what it is with producers and season 4. They are doing the same thing with another season 4 show I watch 'suits'

    First, you're right. But stick with it, they got back on track.

    I remember the Internet was abuzz when this past season started, as the first few episodes were not "Mike & Molly". Certainly not the M&M we loved. Lots of WTF posts.

    But before too many episodes, they quickly righted the ship. So stick it out, you'll be rewarded with the old M&M.

    Next thing you know someone will come here to the forum, perhaps the "annoy" thread, and complain that Ghostbusters 2 has really dropped the ball! :p

    I watched the second episode last night, and it was funny. They have basically changed Molly's character into one of her movie personas. Everyone else on the show is the same, but she is now a crazy whack-a-do.

    Come on. In the world of DVR viewing being a season behind on a TV show isn't that uncommon.

    A little OT... Where are the continuity editors? The last episode with the fishing trip? They had the guy's motor home in a driveway right next to the house. This week's episode? A clear shot of the house with no driveways in sight.
