The Middle: The Complete Fourth Season
Patricia Heaton, Neil Flynn, Charlie McDermott, Eden Sher and Atticus Shaffer star as the middle class, middle of the country (i.e. Orson, Indiana) Heck family in this warm and witty comedy about raising a family and lowering your expectations. While Frankie continues to struggle selling cars at the only remaining car dealer in town, an unexpected turn of events might force her to reevaluate her career path. Axl’s slothlike days are numbered, now that Mike’s made it his mission to ensure that his oldest son somehow earns a sports scholarship and goes to college next year. Meanwhile, Sue’s not only navigating high school, but wants to navigate Indiana roads – by getting her driver’s license. It’s no wonder that youngest son Brick keeps his nose in a book!]]>

This is a family show about your run of the mill dysfunctional family. It reminds me so much of my family growing up. I didn't have one of those perfect families you see on other shows. We were poor, we had mismatched chairs, we missed the bus, my Dad got laid off, we fought and we loved. That's what this show is about. Yes, there is dysfunction but there is love. Each episode is narrated by the Mom (Patricia Heaton),a Bachelor loving, good Mom who makes her share of mistakes, as she tells what the latest issue is. There is also her husband, Mike, a construction company worker who would rather watch t.v. than deal with family matters, and her three children - Axel (the oldest) who's going through teenage rebellion ; Sue (the middle child) the over- achieving under-achiever ; and Brick (the youngest) a introverted, book loving, self whispering kid. No, that is not a typo. He whispers words to himself. We all have our quirks!!
I can only find one thing wrong with this show and that's that it's too short. Each episode is a half hour long which is way too short for me.
However, that won't stop me from giving this 5 shiny gold stars!!
You can't go wrong with this show!!
The "Summer of Sue and Dad" episode alone makes the purchase price worthwhile. Poor eternally optimistic Sue wants nothing more than to spend quality time with her father, only to hear him say that Axl is in fact his favorite child. But as stoic and unemotional as Mike can be, we know that of course he loves Sue equally, and the montage and song at the end prove this in a way that will melt your heart.
Season Four also introduces Axl's tutor Cassidy, and without giving away anything to those who may not have seen the show to this point, trust me, she is a delightful addition to an already outstanding cast!
Speaking of Axl, although far from an outstanding student, he does shine in the episode in which Frankie goes back to school. We may sometimes have to wait for him to do the right thing, but he always comes through. After all, he is part of a family...and a great family it is!
Whomever your favorite may be, you will enjoy every Season Four moment! Relax, sit back, laugh, cry, enjoy, but watch it today! ("Today...")
