Weighing Balances

In two seasons, this is the first snippet of MIKE & MOLLY that’s made this show worth watching. It’s the first moment that goes beyond the fat jokes, the first moment that goes beyond the grotesquerie of its caricatures, the first moment that goes to the often-overlooked heart of what a relationship really is, despite the effort to pitch these two characters as a “realistic couple” based primarily on their body size. I’m not saying it’s made me look forward to watching tomorrow’s installment (ugh, so soon?), but if more of these moments come down the pike I might not mind watching so much.
