Mike & Molly: The Complete First Season

I would have to say that this sitcom was the surprise hit of the last television season.  Who would have bet that television watchers would tune in to a series about two plus-size people in a relationship?  Not me.  Viewers usually like to watch beautiful, sickly thin people especially if love is involved.  A cop and a schoolteacher meet at Overeaters Anonymous.  We follow their relationship as they meet, start dating, spend their first night together, etc.  The two are quite sweet and their relationship is for the tender of heart but there are plenty of raunchy moments as well.  As sweet as these two are are as messed up as their families are.  Via the families there are jokes about vomit, drugs and suicide. Contrasts make for the best humour, no?
