Mickey, who is intelligent but lacking ambition, is always hustling and looking for the next easy payday. It seems like her ship has finally come in when she goes to Greenwich, Conn., to visit her estranged sister and billionaire brother-in-law in search of a handout, and they flee the country to avoid federal fraud charges, leaving her with everything. But nothing in life is free, and "everything" includes guardianship of her sister's three ill-mannered children -- teenage Sabrina, future Republican and middle child Chip, and the fragile youngest, Ben. Though motherhood was never in her plans, Mickey discovers a little responsibility never hurt anybody.
"You're the Worst" isn't a typical romantic comedy. Narcissist Jimmy Shive-Overly thinks all relationships are doomed from the start, while stubborn cynic Gretchen Cutler is certain that amorous bonds aren't her thing. When the two meet at a wedding, though, there's a sea change: They go home together and find they're beginning to fall for each other. Jimmy and Gretchen navigate fear, heartbreak, ardor and other feelings, and their situation seems to establish that nontraditionalists sometimes make great partners -- but not forever. They eventually break up and become involved with other people, leading them to struggle to move on while being pulled back toward each other.
There's not a whole lot of intelligence in the office of the ISIS, an international spy agency where the employees' best efforts are geared toward undermining and betraying one another. Master spy Sterling Archer is a suave, confident secret-keeper at work but a mess when it comes to his personal affairs. He has a tenuous relationship with his ex, fellow agent Lana Kane, and he doesn't get along with his mother, Jessica, who happens to be his boss. ISIS comptroller Cyril Figgis is jealous of Sterling's lifestyle despite the fact he's now dating Lana. Later, after ISIS is disbanded and the agents temporarily run a drug cartel to help fund their retirements, they return to their espionage roots as agents of the CIA. After arriving in Los Angeles, they organize a detective agency.
Leslie Knope, a midlevel bureaucrat in an Indiana Parks and Recreation Department, hopes to beautify her town (and boost her own career) by helping local nurse Ann Perkins turn an abandoned construction site into a community park, but what should be a fairly simple project is stymied at every turn by oafish bureaucrats, selfish neighbors, governmental red tape and a myriad of other challenges. Leslie's colleague Tom Haverford, who delights in exploiting his position for personal gain, is as likely to undermine her efforts as to help her, while her boss, Ron Swanson, is adamantly opposed to government in any form, even though he's a bureaucrat himself.
The antithesis of the loving "Cosby Show" family, "Married ... With Children" focused on the Bundys, a suburban Chicago family who would rather eat nails than say a kind word to one another. Al, the patriarch, is a misogynistic shoe salesman, whose wife, Peggy, is a housewife who does no work around the house. Saying their children, Kelly and Bud, do not have a lot going for them is an understatement. This biting comedy focuses on the couple's constant verbal sparring over their slacker kids, their lack of money, success and intimacy.
Sick, twisted and politically incorrect, the animated series features the adventures of the Griffin family. Endearingly ignorant Peter and his stay-at-home wife Lois reside in Quahog, R.I., and have three kids. Meg, the eldest child, is a social outcast, and teenage Chris is awkward and clueless when it comes to the opposite sex. The youngest, Stewie, is a genius baby bent on killing his mother and destroying the world. The talking dog, Brian, keeps Stewie in check while sipping martinis and sorting through his own life issues.
From the feverish and fertile imagination of "Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane comes this offbeat animated sitcom about Cleveland Brown, a nice guy who leaves Quahog, R.I., for Stoolbend, Va., to rekindle his previously unrequited love for high-school crush Donna. Cleveland's new life includes a disconcertingly flirtatious stepdaughter, a 5-year-old stepson who loves the ladies, some loudmouthed redneck neighbors, a British family that seems stuck in the Victorian era, plus a clan of bears living down at the end of the block. In other words, just another Sunday in MacFarlaneLand.
