|Cast of ABC’s The Middle|
If you watch one prime time show on broadcast television, you’ve got to watch, The Middle on ABC. It’s a half hour comedy about an average middle class family in a mid-sized town in middle America, Indiana, with three children: the eldest an under-motivated and cynical teenager, who does well in sports but not in academics Axl (Charlie McDermott), middle, an enthusiastic young teen, but chronically unsuccessful and socially awkward Sue (Eden Sher) and youngest, an intelligent but introverted compulsive reader with behavioral quirks and socialization problems Brick (Atticus Shaffer).
Not only does it pack non-stop humors knee slapping jokes in a short time, but I can always relate to the parenting challenges of the mom, Frances “Frankie” Heck (Patricia Heaton) and dad, Mike Heck (Neil Flynn).
In last week’s episode, for example, the Frankie and Mike finally broke down to talk to Brick about several tics that he has and Brick breaks down the lapses in the family. When Frankie says she is busy and that is why she doesn’t make time to talk with Brick, he responds, “but you watch Dance Moms.” Then he points out that they don’t eat enough nutritious meals and have no set bed time. “Children need structure,” Brick explains.
In that short humorous moments, I cracked up because I. could. relate. Ha!
I highly recommend and no one from ABC, The Middle or any related company paid any thing in consideration for this post.
