Mike & Molly is a sitcom that aired on CBS from 2010 to 2016. It follows the lives of two individuals who meet at an Overeaters Anonymous meeting and fall in love. The show centers around Mike Biggs, played by Billy Gardell, a police officer, and Molly Flynn, played by Melissa McCarthy, a teacher.

The show's premise is centered around the two main characters and their daily lives. We get to see their relationship grow and evolve over time, along with the challenges they face because of their weight. Mike is a good hearted man who is often the butt of jokes due to his weight, but he doesn't let that get in the way of his daily life. Molly is a witty and sarcastic woman who is working on losing weight, but still struggles with self-esteem issues.

One of the main things that sets this show apart from other sitcoms is the way it handles the subject of weight. Mike and Molly are not shamed for being overweight, nor is their weight the butt of every joke. Instead, the show treats the subject with sensitivity and humor, whilst still being relatable.

Another standout feature of the show is its strong supporting cast. Reno Wilson plays Carl McMillan, Mike's partner, who is always there to lend an ear and offer support. Katy Mixon plays Victoria Flynn, Molly's sister, who often provides comedic relief with her over-the-top personality. Swoosie Kurtz plays Joyce Flynn, Molly's mother, who is constantly meddling in her daughter's life.

Over the course of six seasons, the show tackles a variety of issues faced by overweight individuals, such as body image, self-esteem, and weight loss. However, the show doesn't solely rely on these themes to carry the plot, instead opting for more everyday situations and relatable scenarios.

The chemistry between Gardell and McCarthy is one of the show's strongest aspects, as their banter and playful interactions never seem forced or unnatural. The two actors have excellent comedic timing, which adds to the humor of the show. Additionally, the writing is both witty and smart, which keeps the show engaging and entertaining throughout its six seasons.

Overall, Mike & Molly is a well-written and well-acted sitcom that manages to tackle a delicate subject with humor and sensitivity. The show's charm lies in its relatable characters, strong supporting cast, and smart writing. Whether you're a fan of sitcoms or not, Mike & Molly is definitely worth your time.

In conclusion, Mike & Molly is a sitcom that aired on CBS from 2010 to 2016, featuring the lives of two overweight individuals who fall in love. With strong performances and excellent writing, the show manages to handle its delicate subject matter with humor and sensitivity, making it a must-watch for fans of both sitcoms and dramas alike.
