I've always thought Molly was kind of a bitch, 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.

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.

Lets see, last week she punched a woman in a bar - not cool and this week she dreamed of murdering her MIL. Not at all like last year's "Normal".

That said, I'm glad someone's enjoying it

Molly starting the fight with Mike's mom made me laugh. T-Rex arms made me laugh. I don't like it quite as much as I did before, but I'm definitely going to keep watching.

It's still M&M, but at the same time, they are *definitely* writing her... differently. Even my wife, who doesn't really keep up with TV news and isn't aware of the whole "New" M&M concept, said that Molly seemed "over the top". She was like a crazy woman on the ride-along.

I'm still in, but they will burn off all the goodwill they've built up if they're not careful.

I agree. Overall last season Molly was a fairly normal person. There was comedy, but she was believable. This year she's like a cartoon.

We just finished the 2nd episode. Not remotely as funny as last season. We will give it another episode or two but I think they messed up a good show.

Nine seasons, most on top of the ratings world. Peabody, Emmy and other awards and money. Yup. Roseanne turned out very bad.

They may not have made it but they sure added a lot.

Melissa McCarthy is a very talented actress, and I'm happy to see her finally getting the recognition she deserves. Messing with the formula of the show, however, is a bad idea. I can only assume that the ratings were so low last season that the network figured they had nothing to lose. I'm afraid they may be in for a rude awakening.

On a side note, did any of you happen to see a movie with Melissa McCarthy and Ryan Reynolds called The Nines? McCarthy plays a version of herself in the film. It was a very bizarre script, to say the least. I had previously only been familiar with her from the show Samantha Who. While watching the film, I remember thinking to myself that this is a pretty darn talented actress. Fast forward to 2013, and she's now a bona fide A-lister.

Agree on the funny. And she was a big part but this was the first show this season that played up the supporting cast. She was probably less than any of the three episodes but she was funny enough to make it seem like it was all her.

I'm confused. Mike and Molly were back in her old bedroom upstairs. Did I miss something?

They skipped ep 404 to show 405 last night, so perhaps the bedroom switch will be shown next week.

I didn't think to look at the episode number. Good point.

ETA: I just looked up the episode on my TV episode tracker app and it was in the right order (ep 404)...??

I haven't watched the Susan Sarandon ep yet, but I have to admit that, so far, I'm not really feeling this season. There is too much talent on this show to be almost flatlining at this point. I like Molly the teacher better. Lots of great stuff there, what with Mike's mom working there and all. Molly at home no es bueno. Although high Molly with her sister (love her!) was pretty good.
