'The Middle': 'The 100th' celebrates Orson in all its cow-burning glory

Or no crazier than a giant burning cow, at any rate.Wednesday's (Oct. 21) show was called "The 100th" (in honor of Orson's centennial as well as the episode count), and Mike and Frankie had a long can-you-believe-we're-still-here sort of conversation, but other than that, it kept the meta-commentary and self-consciousness to a minimum in favor of just telling a couple of good stories about the Hecks and their town.The beats were familiar: Frankie and Mike got roped into taking part in something without their recollection. Axl and his Boss Co. partners did not pull off their latest venture. Sue fretted about Darrin and turned to Brad for help. Brick was too smart for his own good. But when it works, you don't mess with... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/10/the-middle-the-100th-celebrates-orson-in-all-its-cow-burning-glory.html
