Trivia

Axl mentions that when he becomes very sick, he wants to be frozen, so that when they find a cure to the sickness, he can be unfrozen and cured. This way, he will never die. This is also the plan of the characters Phyllis, Lars, and Ted on _"The Mary Tyler Moore Show" (1970)_. See more »

A Home Run
9 April 2010 | by (Barbados) – See all my reviews

Thank you, ABC, for putting a great group of comedy writers together to support this all star cast. Barbara Heaton as the used car saleslady mom and the janitor from Scrubs as the dad are the best parents I've seen on t.v. in a long time. The 3 children are given meaty characterizations to play and I hope they will win many awards. The kids and the other supporting cast (including Chris Kattan and the car lot boss) couldn't have been cast better. Every show gives me old fashioned belly laughs and inspiration that, like this family struggling to survive in the middle class (the reason for its name, not named for the middle of the country in which it takes place) we can all learn a lesson in what makes families strong.
