I came on board this season to see Ray, and I've enjoyed it. I like that it's a clean show that you could watch with the whole family. Brick does steal the show. I am not a big Betty White fan, but I appreciate the story told about her episode. She said the behind-the-scenes people were fussing over her, and she said, “How come you don’t fix his hair and his lipstick? I’m just the old broad. He’s the star of the show.”

Sue Heck is my favorite! The way she good naturedly fails at everything, then gets up and tries for the next thing makes her lovable to me.

It's a nice enjoyable piece of comedy fluff. Not to adult, not to childish, just right. I'm glad it's succeeding, hopefully will make it for a few more seasons. Can't believe what braces, a little hair dye and some glasses do to the Sue charccter, hardly recognizeable from the photos above.

Great show last evening.  I am just so impressed by
this comedy gem.  Week after week I find it to be a

consistently funny and entertaining show.


Thumbs up for Turtle Girl!

Frances Bay, who played Aunt Ginny, passed away in September at the age of 92. Tonight's episode, set in the context of the death of Aunt Ginny, was a wonderful tribute to her memory. The ending, with Sue finally getting a real win and Frankie being there to see it, ranks among my very favorites on this show.

Last night's episode was probably the best so far.

Late to the conversation as usual.


Watched this week's episode of THE MIDDLE last

evening, and I have to agree, the best episode thus far.


This show is just incredible. It's a shame that that it
doesn't seemingly get the word-of-mouth it deserves.

Are any of these 3 kids in danger of aging soon? Seems like they don't show any signs of the usual teen growth spurts (for Axel and Sue, no telling if Brick will ever age).

Charlie McDermott (Axl) is 21 in real life and Eden Sher (Sue) just turned 20, so they're both probably done growing. Atticus Shaffer (Brick) suffers from a condition called Osteogenesis imperfecta, which results in short stature as a side symptom.

Oh man, this show could go through their college years and not have the actors look all that much older as they look now.

During the scene at the newspaper in tonight's episode, I was musing to myself that maybe after a long and storied career at the Los Angeles Tribune, Lou Grant decided to scale back his workload and live out his golden years as the editor of a small Indiana regional newspaper...

Or maybe in Cleveland, as Ed Asner will also be on "Hot in Cleveland" next week.

I was pretty impressed with tonight's episode. I watch and enjoy all of ABC's Wednesday night comedies, but I think "The Middle" is probably the most consistent of the lot.

I absolutely adore this show, consistently well done and has a great cast. Also like the rest of the Wednesday comedies, except for "The Bitchi in Apartment 23". Comes across as a "2 Broke Girls" wanna be. But "2 Broke Girls " is a by far a much better show.The bitch is truly a bitch, incredibly obnoxious, and it's not funny. Not a lot of humor there.
