The Mick is an American sitcom television series created by Dave Chernin and John Chernin for the Fox Broadcasting Company. The show was premiered on January 1, 2017, and concluded on May 15, 2018, after two seasons and 37 episodes, which are available on Hulu and Amazon Prime.

The show stars Kaitlin Olson as Mackenzie Murphy, or "Mickey," a reckless and irresponsible young woman who is forced to take care of her wealthy sister's three children after their parents flee the country to escape the law. The children are Sabrina, the eldest and most responsible child, played by Sofia Black-D’Elia; Chip, the middle child and only boy, played by Thomas Barbusca; and Ben, the youngest and comic relief, played by Jack Stanton.

Mickey is initially intimidated by the children’s wealthy and family-oriented lifestyle, and she struggles to discipline and relate to them. However, as the show progresses, she becomes more invested in their lives and forms a close bond with each of them, despite her unconventional and often unorthodox methods of parenting.

The show is known for its dark humor and satirical commentary on the rich and privileged, as well as its depiction of dysfunctional and unconventional families. The humor is often raunchy and irreverent, with many of the jokes focusing on Mickey's lack of parenting skills and the children’s snarky comebacks to her absurd antics. However, beneath the surface-level humor, the show also explores deeper themes of loyalty, family, and the struggles of growing up.

Each episode follows Mickey as she navigates the challenges of parenthood, all while dealing with her own personal demons and trying to make ends meet on the meager salary provided by her sister's trust fund. She must also contend with her sister's snobbish and judgmental friends, who look down on Mickey for her crude behavior and lack of social graces.

One of the main themes of the show is the idea of family, and how it can be found in even the most unlikely of places. Despite the children's initial suspicion and distrust of Mickey, they soon come to see her as a true friend and ally, one who will go to great lengths to protect and care for them. Similarly, Mickey finds a sense of purpose and belonging in her role as a pseudo-parent, which allows her to confront her own personal demons and grow as a person.

Another noteworthy aspect of the show is its representation of diverse characters and social issues. Sabrina is depicted as a smart, ambitious young woman who is passionate about politics and social justice, while Chip struggles with his sexuality and gender identity. The show also tackles issues such as mental illness, addiction, and poverty, all while maintaining its irreverent and comedic tone.

Overall, The Mick is a hilarious and heartwarming show that defies expectations and challenges traditional notions of family and parenthood. With its talented cast and sharp writing, it is sure to delight audiences of all ages and backgrounds.

The Mick is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (37 episodes). The series first aired on January 1, 2017.
