Mike & Molly Review: Guess Who's Coming To The Wedding

at . Comments

From Victoria’s conversations with dead guys to Peggy’s Catholic quips, this episode of Mike & Molly was a lot of fun and had a lot to say about religion, family and the afterlife.

That’s pretty heavy stuff for a sitcom, but paired with the show’s sweet and sometimes bawdy humor, it didn’t feel weighed down at all.

The focal point of this episode, for me, was really Victoria. Despite her eccentricities, she’s at peace with herself and just wants to live life to the fullest (which might explain her parking tickets and suspended license). I think working with dead bodies gives Victoria a special perspective. She’s clearly not afraid of death and she possesses a certain quirky spirituality, as you can tell by her quotes from tonight’s episode.

Please, Mike

Peggy, however, is old school Catholic. She has high standards for her son’s wedding, and when they aren’t met, watch out! I don’t blame Mike for being scared of his mom, particularly when it comes to sensitive issues like his father.

Even Molly braved Peggy’s wrath to try and open up a dialogue about the wedding in that great cafeteria scene (those lunch ladies sure are hostile), but with no luck. It makes sense then that, after all the regular tactics had failed, only Victoria’s sweet, non-judgmental appeals would work.

Were you surprised that Victoria managed to change Peggy's mind? I thought Peggy was going to see right through Victoria’s flattery, but I guess a kind word goes a long way with her. I hope by the time Mike and Molly’s nuptials roll around the show remembers Victoria’s offer to do Peggy’s makeup – that will make for a great scene!

"Victoria Can't Drive" ended with Victoria heading out to the VFW with Peggy, or “Legs” as Victoria now calls her. Their friendship is an unlikely one, but it’s definitely full of comedic potential.

I agree - I would love to see this side of Victoria again. I think it really rounds out her character and gives her some depth to her "party girl" image. Thanks for reading!

I have always enjoyed Victoria; she seems like the kind of person it would be fun to know -- she reminds me of some of my friends who ARE fun to know. But tonight, seeing her talking to the dead gentleman, and seeing her tactful method of talking Peggy around to coming to the wedding, I was touched. She was so sweet -- it was a whole new side of her, and one I would like to see again.
