If your family lives in a spotless house, never eats junk food or worries about money and always has enough matching chairs for the kitchen table, you might not think this show is hilarious. If you are one of the rest of us,and are (right now) putting off the hunt for that permission slip for your kid's field trip, this is the show for you. If you once bounced a check for a field trip and now need to send cash, that goes double, triple if the principal wrote you a nasty note.

Season five of The Middle has the whole Heck family dealing with son Axl's move to college, starting with the traumatic school drop off and then dealing with the change. While Sue and Brick happily contemplate an Axl free life, Mom (Frankie) swings between tears and guilt, and Dad (Mike) quietly misses his boy. Of course, Axl is hardly out of the house before he's back home lecturing his family about the challenges of college. Brick starts junior high, proving that there is no place in junior high for a bright original bookworm. The Heck's meeting with the vice principal will have parents of ADD kids in stitches. Sue Heck a high school junior now, finds that there are whole corridors where she can now walk, now that Axl is gone. She is still the least likely kid to be popular, but easiest to underestimate.

The Middle is a hilarious show, but it has a serious message. The Heck's don't have a big income but this show is not about class. Lack of time, demands from public schools, kids' problems, getting fired, not having time to cook--these are things that most families struggle with. What is impressive, the show seems to say, is what they do get accomplished. The Heck's do their best. Frankie and Mike take their kids to church, even as they wear out their welcome borrowing the church van.

The Middle is one of THE best tv show sitcoms the whole family can enjoy. They make you smile and laugh without needing all the smut to do so. Now that's acting! We need more sitcoms like this and I would watch it over and over and it still makes me laugh. Highly recommend watching every season starting at the beginning.

Love the show! It shows life as it really is in midddle class America. Struggling to make ends meet and the quirky kids! Shows that not all kids in America are straight A soccer playing perfect little angels. They are not street thugs either. Just your average American family, shown as we really are.
