Editorial Reviews

In Season Three of The Middle, the Hecks tackle the beginning of a new school year, a not-so-relaxing Thanksgiving, and an unexpected wedding. In the midst of it all, Frankie (Emmy(R) winner Patricia Heaton) and Mike Heck (Neil Flynn) attempt to raise their kids with love and a solid Midwestern practicality. Axl, the eldest, is a jock slacker who eats the family out of house and home and walks around in his underwear. Then there's Sue, their extraordinarily ordinary teen daughter who fails at just about everything she tries with great gusto. Finally, there's Brick, their quirky fourth-grader, who reads constantly, whispers to himself and unapologetically marches to the beat of his own drummer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Please release the Third Season! July 6, 2012
Format:DVD
I love the series, "The Middle," which has Patricia Heaton (Everybody Loves Raymond) and Neil Flynn (Scrubs) as parents of three precocious children in fictional Orson, Indiana. The show is far better than Modern Family which gets awards.

Maybe the show is a little too blue collar or set in the middle of the country but it's still one of the best comedies on television and in recent decades. Patricia Heaton should get more Emmys for her performance as Frances "Frankie" Heck and the same accolades for her onscreen partner, Neil Flynn as her husband, Mike Heck.

The actors who play the children are perfect. Charlie McDermott is a hoot as the oldest son, Axel, who takes off his shirt and clips his toenails in the chip bag. Eden Sher is wonderful as the always optimistic Sue Heck even in the worst of times. And I can't forget Atticus Shaffer as Brick, the boy who prefers books to anything else.

This season was great and I look forward to the fourth. Marsha Mason and Jerry Van Dyke play Frankie's parents. John Cullum returns as Big Mike and Norm McDonald plays Mike's younger brother, Rusty. All in all it's a great show that shouldn't be overlooked and should be released entirely on DVD like the first two seasons.

Anyone who watches "The Middle" knows what a brilliant series it is! This, however, is not a traditional review, which I will update at a later date. Instead, I am wondering why there is not a pre-order listing for this title. Warner Bros., the past two years, has at least let the fans know to expect a release, but this year, not so much. With release dates for other series in their library, like "The Big Bang Theory," "Mike & Molly," and "Suburgatory," it baffles me why this series has heard no good news yet. I am dying to own this next season, which was fantastic, to say the least. I really hope something surfaces soon in terms of a DVD (even Blu-ray would be GREAT) for this series. It is truly underrated and deserves to be on DVD. Fingers crossed that an announcement is forthcoming!

UPDATE (6/12/13): The WB has announced that production of the season on DVD has begun, with a release date of October 8, 2013!!! I encourage everyone to immediately pre-order/purchase this new set upon its release date to encourage the release of future seasons! This is such a funny, poignant series that deserves every season released, and I would hate to see low sales for season three affect season four's availability. That being said, hopefully the fourth season will be released not too distant in the future!

You know all those over-hyped, supposedly 'edgy' and daring comedies the critics insist all discerning TV fans SHOULD love and appreciate? Well, The Middle isn't among them ;) But while critics have given the show a lukewarm reception, all of the actual TV viewers I know have been immediately charmed and delighted by this underrated gem of a show.

The Middle doesn't go out of its way to flaunt just how edgy and risque it can be. It doesn't, like so many other critically lauded shows, feature wholly unlikable people doing wholly unlikable things while half-winking at the camera over just how zany they are. It doesn't go for cartoonishly over-the-top wackiness or the kind of constant lowbrow sexual innuendo and fart jokes that you might unpleasantly associate with high school locker rooms.

Instead, The Middle simply tells the story of a family that's likable and even admirable despite also being realistically, hilariously flawed. The humor stems from the strong characterizations, sharp dialogue and the clever insight peppered throughout. (You'll be thinking "that is so true...it's scary how well I can relate to that!" at least a few times per episode). We get flashes of heartwarming poignancy here too, but rest assured that it's never too sappy or forced. It's quietly uplifting, but in a way that feels earned rather than manipulatively sentimental.

This is one of those rare shows that successfully blends humor with heart, and I was pleasantly surprised to realize just how much I've come to love spending time with this family. I used to have a weird visceral dislike for Patricia Heaton and, for reasons alluded to above, rarely like sitcoms...

5.0 out of 5 stars Waiting for the best season yet to be on dvd! September 13, 2012
Format:DVD
My daughter and I love "The Middle". I am impatiently waiting for the dvd set because she wasn't able to watch this last season and I thought it was the best one yet. It just keeps getting better. I have bought the past 2 seasons for her and she is anxious to own the 3rd season. No dvd release date yet?!

This is one of the best shows currently on TV hands down. Season 3 was one of the best. I have been so looking forward to getting Season 3 on DVD only to find out there is no release date. Why??? Warner Bros. if you're reading this please release The Middle Season 3 on DVD. Per episode download is not the same!

Updated 3/19/13 - Still no actual release date but it's on the way and I pre-ordered my copy. Can't wait. Best comedy on TV since 2009.

Our family loves watching The Middle together. Each episode brings much uncanned laughter. Maybe one of the reasons we laugh so much is because we can relate!
