There are many different types off shows out there. If you are looking for an action packed thriller then obviously this is not the right show for you...When rating a TV show, we are comparing it to other TV shows we have watched, how interesting we found it, and how entertaining it was. MIC is funny and sometimes silly, which serves as a good contrast to a very different show like Game of Thrones which is very serious. It is not particularly academic except in teaching one ways not to live, it doesn't tease the brain, and it doesn't leave one marvelling at the acting genius. However it is a decent watch which is just fun and keeps the audience entertained. The flamboyant lifestyles portrayed are enviable and if you cannot watch a show without feeling anger towards wealthier people then...don't watch it. I would recommend this show if you are sitting at home, bored and looking for a series to start watching. It can be funny and I genuinely have enjoyed watching thus far. Some people criticise the show because they say it is scripted. To make a show entertaining there are certain guidelines a director might propose but the show is not fully scripted, in that the speech of the actors has not fully been premeditated by someone else.
