[ABC] The Middle

Frankie and her husband, Mike, have lived in Orson, Indiana their whole lives. A man of few words (every one a zinger), Mike is a manager at the town quarry and Frankie is the third-best used car salesman (out of the three) at the local dealership. She may not be a high-powered career woman, but when it comes to her family, she'll go to just about any length. And with kids like these, she had better. There's Axl, her semi-nudist teenage son conceived with Guns N' Roses playing a significant role; Sue, the awkward teenage daughter who fails at everything with great gusto; and their seven-year-old son Brick, whose best friend is his backpack.


I watched the pilot earlier and I must say I like it too. Perfect combination for ABC's other new sitcom Modern Family. Yes, may similarities talaga with Malcom in the Middle especially the youngest kid, Brick, is so like Malcom's brother Dewey but mas extreme naman yung sa Malcom.

Brick is such an adorable quirky kid. Scrub's The Janitor is also here and is doing a fairly good job. Patricia Heaton did good too although it was a similar role with her Everybody Loves Raymond character.

I miss this kind of family sitcom, there is nothing ground breaking with The Middle but for me it was entertaining to watch and the writing is not that bad either. I hope this show will do well so we could get a full season *okay*

    The pilot episode got okay ratings, 8.71 million viewers but it was number #1 on its time slot though along with the other new ABC sitcom Hank. I wish more people would catch it though because it is a nice show.

    I love the second episode *okay* It's a good family sitcom, the last part was very heartwarming. I'm glad ABC picked it up for a full season :D

    Ako lang ba talaga nanonood nito dito sa PEx

    The third episode is also a solid episode. This show really nailed it how a mother's life is so toxic.

    I'm really enjoying this show, I hope more watch this one :D
  • been watching this since episode 2 (i missed the premiere)...the kids are a little bit outlandish character-wise (especially axl), but as for frankie (patricia heaton), nararamdaman mo 'yung feeling niyang, how she wants to be able to do ALL her responsibilities, so much that you think that she sometimes might be biting off more than she can chew.

    well, unfortunately or otherwise, i think so, kasi mukhang gano'n talaga 'yung pinaka-"feature" ng character niya, being the "resident bum" in the heck family. :naughty:

    Gusto ko yung ex-boyfriend ni Sue, si Brad, sana magpakita pa sya, I love how he and Sue are clueless with his "true colors" :lol:
  • forgforg Administrator PEx Moderator
    I love the season finale, nakakatouch yung story ni Sue :mecry:
    And Betty White as the librarian was cool, love that she whispered to herself too ala Brick

    Everybody Loves Raymond reunion!

    Expect to feel some dj vu when The Middle returns on September 22 with an episode that reunites Patricia Heaton with her Everybody Loves Raymond mother-in-law, Doris Roberts. And for Heaton, it's like old times when her character, Frankie, ends up on the losing side of a battle with Roberts, who plays Brick's teacher Ms. Rinsky, a woman Heaton describes as "very no-nonsense and sick of interfering parents like Frankie."

    Executive producer Eileen Heisler adds, "It's a nod to their previous relationship, where [Ms. Rinsky] just kind of makes Frankie spin — she makes her confidence go down the drain rather quickly." Heisler, a self-proclaimed Raymond fan, says she didn't consider having the two get along. "I don't think anyone would have liked that. Patty tries, but I don't think she can ever have the last word with Doris Roberts—not on my watch!"
