Have you ever watched a television show and just laughed and laughed so hard that you found yourself still smiling hours later? Then these 22 hilarious episodes from the Mike and Molly show season five from Warner Brothers Home Entertainment are sure to bring on the laughter, happy tears, and lighter step to your day!
Before I get much further into this review, I would like to say that I was given a free copy of the DVD to assist in this review by Warner Brothers Home Entertainment. For full details please read my disclosures found HERE.
With the comedic talents of actresses such as Melissa McCarthy, with her comedic G-E-N-I-U-S and that she is by the way, hands down, one of my favorite actresses and I first became a fan of hers when she played Sookie St. James on Gilmore Girls. Plus with fantastic co-stars in this series such as Swoosie Kurtz who starred in the short lived, but fantastic show Pushing Daises, you can’t ask for a better comedic balance. Plus there are so many more talented actors and actresses that this cast is just a slam dunk in the comedy sitcom world in my opinion.
My husband and I have watched this television series from the beginning. The one thing we have both noted over the years is like many of the classic comedy sitcoms before it, you can watch an episode over and over again and laugh just as hard as you did the first time. That folks takes pure talent and a team of genius writers and actors/actresses to create. With my surgery and procedures not going as well as expected, the fact that I have been able to put in a DVD that is sure to bring a smile to my face and produce a laugh is more valuable than words can express. So, for everyone who likes a good laugh I challenge you to sty giggle-free while watching the antics of Mike and Molly in their Season 5 DVD. I know I failed that challenge many, many times each episode.
If you have been following along with Mike and Molly what can you expect in the season five story line?
Here is the official synopsis of season 5 of Mike and Molly: When she returns from the Iowa Writers’ Workshop with a publisher’s check in hand, it’s official: Molly’s a real writer! Now all she has to do is bang out that romance novel and start signing books. No sweat, right? As Molly struggles to cope with writer’s block, her publisher’s bizarre notes and stressful deadlines, her hubby feels the pinch. And with his in-laws living under the same roof and his partner dating Molly’s sister, Mike’s got his own world of drama to deal with. But when it comes to making true love work no matter what life throws in their way, this couple writes the book. Good times are here in all 22 Season Five episodes filled with life, laughs, and love.

I think we can all relate to one character or another, or relate the characters to a loved one, family member, or friend in our lives.
