If you've been watching the whole season, you will notice that his little 'glitch' has been happening a lot less frequently in the most recent episodes. I think the writers don't want to overuse that comedy gold.

You're right, I have noticed that. As a matter of fact, I'd forgotten about it until he did it.

The Middle -- "Worry Duty" -- 04/28/10

The Middle

Synopsis:

Spoiler:
Axl's ex-girlfriend Morgan (Alexa Vega) drifts back into his life, and Frankie worries that he'll get hurt again. Meanwhile, Brick cares for a baby chick for a school science project, and it awakens parental feelings in him.


I'm a little behind on this show. How has it been recently? I know this is by far not the best sitcom on right now, but it has it's moments.

It is still consistently good. I might say that just because it is the weakest of the ABC Wednesday comedy line-up, it is FAR better that most of the junk out there!

I'll second this.. there was one episode that was a clunker recently, but I think that it has been consistent. I hope that ABC picks it up for next season, because it is far better than what other channels have to offer.

AFAIK ABC picked up all three of the remaining Wednesday night comedies for next season not long after they canceled Hank.

The Middle -- Season Finale -- "Average Rules" -- 05/19/10

The Middle

Synopsis:

Spoiler:
After attending year-end school parent-teacher conferences, Frankie and Mike are shocked to discover that Brick may be held back from going to the third grade because the school librarian, Mrs. Nethercott has it out for him due to 31 unreturned books. Meanwhile, as Axl's aptitude test results reveal him to be academically gifted, Frankie makes it her mission to get an overlooked Sue the recognition she deserves when none of her teachers even realize that she's in their classes.


"Average Rules" was written by DeAnn Heline & Eileen Heisler and directed by Wendy Stanzler.

Special Guest Star tonight is none other than the Golden Girl herself:

The Middle -- Season Premiere -- "Back to School" -- 09/22/10

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
By djariya at 2010-09-03

Synopsis:

Spoiler:
In the Season 2 premiere, Frankie has a hard time getting the kids ready for school, and she's accused of being overprotective by Brick's new teacher (Doris Roberts). Meanwhile, Sue may be too enthusiastic about being on the cross-country team.


This was a very underrated sitcom last season. I wasn't expecting much of it, but grew to like it. Heaton's character is kind of an idiot though.

Is Chris Kattan still a regular for Season 2? He was probably the worst part of the first season, in my opinion. I hated any time they shoe-horned him in to the family plots.

I got hooked on the middle watching reruns this summer, very funny show. I didn't know if anyone else here would be watching.

Same here. Picked this up during the the tail end of summer reruns. I liked what I saw (about 6 episodes or so).

The episode started off slow, but delivered the laughs about halfway through. The scenes with Sue in class had me dying!

I completely forgot I had conflicts (Hell's Kitchen and Undercovers) and forgot to set up my second DVR. Guess I'll have to catch this via Hulu.

In the same boat. I will buy the first season set when it drops in price to something more reasonable. I think Sue is just about one of the funniest characters I've seen on TV in a long time, and the entire show has all the makings of a great show. The car sales bits drag the show down a bit from what I've seen but over all pretty solid, and I LOVED the six or so episodes I saw.

I didn't feel the pilot was as strong as what I saw before this, but I am not deterred. However, I talked a friend into watching it for the first time tonight and hope they weren't deterred. It was funny, but just not as funny as I think this show can be.

By the way, I just LOVE the picture of Sue on the mom's desk at work. I've seen it twice now and each time I pause the DVR to look at it...it makes me laugh so hard a tear or two comes out of my eyes.

good episode - none of the kids hit that "awkward" age / growth spurt which can be distracting.

still a great 1/2 hr comedy

Funny to see Patty Heaton face off against Doris Roberts again. Hope she becomes a semi-regular nemisis this season.

Wasn't too sure about this show when it premiered but it grew on me. Look forward to it every week

One of the few sitcoms that are "must see" for me - really pleased that it's back!

The Middle -- "Homecoming" -- 09/29/10

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
By djariya at 2010-09-03

Synopsis:

Spoiler:
A dilemma present itself to Frankie and Mike when Axl makes the varsity football team, but Sue's first cross-country meet is the same day as the homecoming game. Meanwhile, Brick announces a new take on fallen foliage when he rakes up the leaves in the yard but doesn't want to take them to the dump; he wants to set them free in the forest instead.


Almost forgot about this show tonight. I know it's not as popular here as Modern Family, but hell it's still a damn funny show.

I haven't watched Better with you yet, but judging by last week most of you didn't like it, I won't bother with threads for that.
