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.

Best new show of the season
14 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had no particular hopes for this show. Of all the sitcoms on ABC's new "Wednesday Comedy Night" this is the one I expected to like the least, so it came as quite a surprise how funny and entertaining the pilot episode was. It moves along nicely and the cast is excellent. I always thought Heaton was talented but could never really enjoy her on EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND because her character was, quite frankly, an unendurable bitch. Here she has a chance to project a little more warmth and likability and really shines. The real charmer in the cast is Eden Sher as the teenage daughter, a marvel of gawky authenticity. I fear THE MIDDLE may be just a shade too subtle for audiences who tastes run to fart joke and similar crudity, but more discriminating viewers should definitely check it out.
