Trivia

Sue's birthday is mentioned several time as being the 29th of February, which is the Leap Year Day. However, this is impossible. Sue graduated High School in 2015, which - with a February birthday - means she would have had to have been born in 1997. As the Leap Year occurs only ever 4 years, and each year is a multiple of 4, the closest Leap Years to Sue's birth would have been 1996 and 2000, which would mean that in 2015 she would have turned either 19 or 15 respectively. There was also no mention of Sue's birthday in s.7, despite 2016 being a Leap Year, though she is referenced as being 19 years old in s.7 ep.18 which first aired in March, meaning she has celebrated her birthday already.

Finally, a show I can watch with my family.
15 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm guessing the family portrayed in 'The Middle' is not the norm but they certainly are closer to 'real' people than most sitcom characters or, for that matter, most 'reality' show contestants. The children are not perfect nor are they drug addicted or sex-crazed or alcoholic or parent-hating brats. The oldest son hanging out in boxer shorts? My son did that. The middle child, the daughter, trying to find her place in the school social order but often coming up short? Who hasn't failed at something in life? And the youngest child, the little boy who often repeats things in a whisper, is sweet and loves his parents. These kids make you laugh both from their unintentional humor and from recognition. And I especially like the fact that each episode ends on an upbeat note. The family members, no matter what crazy circumstances they may find themselves in, love each other and accept their lot in life without bitterness and anger. Far removed from the pop culture norms we've been fed lately, people living in 'The Middle' may actually exist after all.
