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 »

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.
