Watch Mike & Molly

As the name suggests, the sitcom's main characters are Mike Biggs and Molly Flynn. Mike is a Chicago police officer and Molly is an elementary school teacher. Both struggle with their weight issues and attend a support group. That is how they met and started dating.

Mike's main family and friends consist of his mother Peggy Biggs, his work partner Carlton (Carl) McMillan, and Samuel, the African waiter at Carl's and Mike's favorite restaurant. Later on Mike's father, Jack, who left Peggy a long time ago for a prostitute, appears as well.

In addition to her relationship with Mike, the show focuses on Molly's sister Victoria, their mother Joyce and occasionally her teaching career. Molly is not only physically different from her family, they are both very slender, but also seems more level-headed.

Victoria and Joyce are hardly ever without a big glass of red wine, and Victoria is also high most of the time on marijuana. Mike knows about this, but does not arrest her and even jokes about it at times. Joyce eventually gets engaged to Vincent, a chauvinistic man she first tried to hook Molly up with.

Other than that, Molly does not seem to have her own friendship circle, although she befriends Mike's friends later. However, her relationship with Peggy, despite Molly's efforts, is rocky and they often butt heads, especially over Mile.

Some of the funniest scenes of the sitcom take place between Mike and Carl when they discuss life, relationships and food in the patrol car. While they are cops, neither of them is particularly courageous. Their favorite hangout is the restaurant where Samuel works, who often makes derogatory comments about Mike's dietary habits, Carl's choice of women and about poverty in his home country of Senegal.

Carl teases Mike mercilessly, but at home he is at the receiving end of his grandmother Rosetta's biting tongue. Despite her church-going ways, a lot of her jokes hit Carl below the belt.

Mike's relationship with his mother is characterized by her need to control him, but she genuinely cares about him. Peggy also dotes on Jim, her faithful canine companion whom she sometimes treats better than Mike.

Mike and Molly's relationship progresses from dating to him moving in with her, to engagement to marriage. They deal with any issues that couples have, including intimacy and family issues as well as the never-ending battle with their weight.
