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.
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.
