munchman sees ‘The Mick’

by munchdaddy

…and yer friendly neighborhood munchlinio lurves it!

THE GOOD:

  • Kaitlin Olson
  • The outrageous depravity of Kaitlin Olson’s character, Mickey, AKA The Mick
  • The writing that gives Kailin Olson so much to work with while inhabiting Mickey, AKA The Mick
  • The writing that actually makes each episode of this series (okay, yeppers, I’ve only seen two, but I’m definitely coming back for more) not just Kaitlin Olson AKA Mickey AKA The Mick being funny but also makes each ep about something, in that way that old folks are always saying TV used to be (Was BONANZA ever “about” something? Really?)

THE BAD:

  • Kaitlin Olson’s character, Mickey, AKA The Mick isn’t exactly somebody we haven’t seen before. It is, in fact, very, very, very much like the character she plays on a little show called Always Sunny in Philadelphia (but who the hell cares? The more KO AKA M AKA TM the better, dammit!)

IN OTHER WORDS

Watch this show. Make your friends watch it. Make your family – you know, those phoney baloneys who always say they’re “disappointed” in what you and your generation create and enjoy – watch ittoo. Maybe they’ll learn something. Even if they don’t, maybe their eyeballs will get The Mick renewed. Again and again and again.
