The Mick: Season 1 (2016 - 2017)


Season 1
The Mick

Critics Consensus

Kaitlin Olson's considerable charm isn't enough to keep the intermittently funny The Mick from falling prey to conventional storylines and hard-to-root-for characters.

Tv Season Info

A comedy series about a dysfunctional family revolves around Mickey (Kaitlin Olson), a very irresponsible woman visiting her sister Poodle (Tricia O'Kelley), her rich husband Christopher (Laird Macintosh) and their three children when the married couple are arrested for fraud. Mick is tasked with watching over her nephews and niece, but parenting is not her thing--and she just wants to go back home. Too bad Poodle and Chris end up fleeing the country, leaving Mick to take care of the kids for the time being. Season 1 follows Mick's struggles as she tries to be a role model to Sabrina (Sofia Black-D'Elia), a sassy 18-year-old, Chip (Thomas Barbusca), an arrogant 13-year-old, and Ben (Jack Stanton), a 7-year-old nerd.

Critic Reviews for The Mick Season 1

All Critics (26) | Top Critics (15)

The first episode is not as edgy (or, quite frankly, as funny) as it thinks it is. Olson is a gifted physical actress but the woman-behaving-badly shtick starts off a bit toothless. The second episode is sharper.

Like The Simpsons, Married with Children, Malcolm in the Middle and other Fox sitcoms, the ridiculous reach is what makes The Mick work. There is solace in realizing your family isn't near this bad and humor in realizing it could be.

You may not laugh until it hurts, but there are some laughs to be had. Particularly for those who also swear by Family Guy.

The Mick wants to be outrageous, but instead settles for excessive.

I could easily see The Mick taking the much-needed place of other working class comedies like My Name is Earl and Raising Hope.

The Mick is a laugh-out-loud riot that automatically enters the running for best new series of 2017.

Jan 5, 2017 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

It's just an OK sitcom with a frequently charming performance by Olson, which may be enough for a while... But it also seems like the kind of project that could leave Olson feeling trapped.

Irreverent comedy is fun, full of risky behaviors.

Jan 3, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

If 2016 was the year of the scam, that's raised the stakes for 2017. I can't tell yet if The Mick can meet those new expectations.

If The Mick proves anything, it's that Olson is an extraordinarily talented comedian.

    Hilarious. Olson nails it.
  • Mar 08, 2018
    Got a winner, edgy and funny
  • Mar 01, 2018
    Easily one of the most annoying and distasteful shows I have ever seen. I'd choose a negative score if I could.
  • Feb 27, 2018
    Always interesting & funny on every episode. A series that brings alot of laughter & excitment
  • Jan 26, 2018
    My favorite new comedy! Like a darker modern family ?????? Love the casting!
  • Jan 05, 2018
    This is easily one of the best new shows hands down. Kaitlin Olson is very much like her 'Sweet Dee' character on It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, but taken to a higher, and funnier level. The entire cast is really good and the show itself is hillarious and creatively written. This will be the next big thing!

    How do people not enjoy this show? It is honestly very funny and always interesting.
  • Dec 25, 2017
    I don't see how people cant love this show. All the characters are so likable and the actors portray their roles extremely well. I always find myself hysterically laughing at least twice per episode. This show gets bad reviews but in my non expert opinion, this show is worthy of 5 stars.

    This show is friggin hilarious! Cast is perfect too. Fox better not cancel this show like they cancel other great shows!
