    I enjoyed this article a lot and I also love Mickey Milkovich, he is my favorite character on the show. I think with the way they told his story slowly so that we can see how he changes is incredible and glad they did it this way. I’m relieved that people are starting to notice this character, thank you for writing this.

    This perfectly explains why I am addicted to this show. At the moment, it’s all about Mickey. The actor is incredible and Mickey’s story is both incredibly moving and tragic. I really hope that, somehow, there is a silver lining for him. He has become such a complex character and I can’t wait to see where his story goes now that he’s opening up a bit and accepting the truth about himself, even if he is terrified to let others know. I just hope that it doesn’t all come crashing down on him…although, I think that’s where it’s leading.

      I’m so glad to know other people love Mickey too! I’m also hoping there’s a happy ending for him, but not holding my breath since it doesn’t seem like the show has a happy ending in mind for any of the characters.
