Review - Mike & Molly Season 1 Episode 1 Pilot

When a show is about two fat people, the easiest jokes will be fat jokes. They're convenient and occasionally funny. However, a show based solely on fat jokes won't work, which is why Mike & Molly narrowly passes muster. There are far too many fat jokes for my taste, but underneath the fat issue, which is needlessly played up, is sweet show with two people falling in love.

Whether Mike & Molly finds time for the people rather than the flab in future episodes has yet to be seen, and even then, I'm not sure I'll take another look.

Score: 8.0/10
