A spoof of crime documentaries about the arrest and trial of a beloved poetry professor from a small town in South Carolina, who is accused of brutally murdering his wife, and the young Northeastern lawyer hired to defend him.
The Mick centers on Mackenzie "Mickey" Murphy (Olson), a hard-living, foul-mouthed, cigarette-smoking woman who moves to affluent Greenwich, CT to raise the spoiled kids of her wealthy sister who has fled the country to avoid a federal indictment. She quickly learns what the rest of us already know - other people's children are awful. Written by
This is by far the funniest sitcom on TV. It's fresh, smart and hilarious. I fell hard for all of the characters. They are surprisingly well-rounded and beautifully played by the respective actors. The far- fetched-ness of the plot really fades into the background and the situation of the moment really cracks you up. It's not cute-sy like a lot of shows with kids tend to be. The themes are adult, but not crazy inappropriately so. The physical aspect of the humor contributes greatly to the fun.
