Re: The Middle -- "The Trip" -- 10/21/09

The writers did a good job in making the daughter much more likeable this week. I hope she stays that way and/or gets even better.

That little kid is a good actor.

I don't get the hate for Patricia Heaton... but then again I have never seen her in anything before except this show. I never watched 5 minutes of Raymon (that's where she is from - right?)

I like the whole cast execpt for Patricia Heaton. She seems to be trying too hard. that little kid is pretty funnytoo. I like this show but would be better with less Patricia Heaton.

I'm in the minority - even with her bad math skills, I love Heaton!

This was my favorite ep so far.

Mike and Olivia's conversation at the front door was great.
And Sue blowing up after her mom found the check was funny and sweet.

I've got nothing against Heaton as an actress. It's just that the harried mom trying her best to keep up with everything her wacky husband, boss, co-workers, and kids throw at her is such a cliched character that I don't need to see it again.

Re: The Middle -- "The Trip" -- 10/21/09

Just went through a 4 episode marathon and I'm finally caught up. I like the show, but man Patricia Heaton's character is such a pathetic clueless woman. I just want to strangle her at how stupid she acts. I used to think that Heaton was kinda hot for a 50+ year old woman, but dang could they not make her any more frumpier and unattractive.....But, I guess that's the whole point of the show that she's supposed to be a middle America housewife.

The kids, especially Brick and Sue are fun to watch and I enjoy the Dad.

The Middle -- "Block Party" -- 10/28/09

The Middle

Synopsis:

Spoiler:


Brick is tested at school and rated "socially challenged," and Mike hopes basketball will bring him out of his shell. But when a lawn-mower contest is held at the neighborhood block party, it's Brick's talent for souping up engines that helps him fit in. Meanwhile, Frankie helps raise money for Axl's football team.



I'm all caught up w/ this show. For the most part I like it, but damn Heaton's character Frankie is such a clueless woman.

Pretty funny ep. The youngest kid has a good onscreen presence. He's seems older than his character.

@ the daughter chasing balls.

Does Atticus Shaffer (Brick) have some medical condition with his legs? They never really show him taking more than two steps before he's off-camera and even those steps are a bit gimpy.

Re: The Middle -- "Block Party" -- 10/28/09

This was the best episode yet! AND there was no real mention of the family's financial woes for once!

Brick is just the bomb! [whisper]bomb![/whisper]

I read that he's had some brittle bone disease and has rods in his legs.

I was just telling my wife that the casting for this how was dead on and they should have used this casting agent for Hank.

Re: The Middle -- "Block Party" -- 10/28/09

Brick, and the whole cast, I think is great. Didn't know about Shaffer's limitations, he does such a great job. This last episode also didn't concentrate on the car lot, which was a plus, but I do like Chris Kattan (and Murray) in the cast. All in all, it's a funny show that is also surprisingly touching, which is no small feat for today's comedys.

Notice Hank was already preempted?

Especially when at the start of the episode she mentioned how exclusive the block party is and that outsiders had to stay behind the barricade. I'm not crazy about Axl at all, but Sue is much better than before. I love Brick.

The Middle -- "The Front Door" -- 11/04/09

The Middle

Synopsis:

Spoiler:


Axl accidentally breaks down the front door and Mike insists that he repair it, which may leave the house open for days. Meanwhile, it's time for Sue's school picture, and she's not exactly photogenic.



Brick is a riot. Really enjoying this show.
