By far, some of the greatest writing on a show! I have 3 teenage boys and can relate on so many levels.

When I watch this show I find myself equal parts amused and horrified. The kids all seem to be content being incredibly poor, Axel copes well with the constant smothering whilst Sue and Brick (yes they named him that!) adjust well to the varying levels of neglect and general disinterest shown by the parents. Each of the kids seem able to compensate for the personality disorders each of them have developed from poor diet, lack of stimulation and the afore mentioned smothering/neglect dynamic in the family. Now the parents, Dad at a guess didn't want the kids and if he did, one would have been enough. This parenting style from a father is quite typical, the mother on the other hand.... well let's just say tat if I knew her she would be in prison for neglect and child abuse! Only after I manage to remind myself that these are not real people, and kudos to the actors for that, do I remember that this is not a social commentary on middle america (yes it is) and is actually a comedy akin to Roseanne, showing how average people work hard to make ends meet in order to provide a loving and nurturing home (wait a minute?). Always keeping me thinking, The middle I salute you.

The first two seasons were better, not it runs on the same jokes it had in the two first seasons. I am not surprised if this is soon cancelled.

Was a fun show to watch around the same time as Modern Family to fill in that extra half hour. But, it's run it's course...time to go.
