Frankie Heck is a superhero. Well, no, not an actual superhero, but sometimes it seems to Frankie as though getting her kids out the door for school every morning is a superheroic act. Middle-aged, middle class, and living in the middle of the country, this harried wife and working mother of three uses her wry wit and sense of humor to try to get her family through each day intact.

A great show about an overworked mother living a frustratingly typical life, THE MIDDLE feels very natural and real, even despite the hokey elements that are weaved into the fabric of all sitcoms. It's just a pleasure to watch. That being said, it's not a particularly popular show, and so, it's not going to find much acclaim at an awards festival. It's not a pretentious or profound show. It's the television show equivalent of comfort food, and for that, I recommend everyone watch it. (I also find that it improves as it goes on, so if you think it is, meh, mediocre in the first season, I recommend watching it into the second season. If it doesn't entertain by that point, then it may not be for you.) I enjoy the clashing elements of the show, particularly the diversity of the children, from the apathetic bonehead eldest child Axl to the determined but downtrodden middle child Sue to finally, my favourite, Brick, the baby of the bunch, but the intellectual superior of all of them (and FYI the most awkward and antisocial character). The show's running story is pretty much nonexistent; they're just trying to live their lives and I think that's what I like about it, the plotlessness that mirrors actual life. It never fails to make me smile. I'd recommend it.

Way funnier than Everybody Loves Raymond, in my opinion, and much closer to real-life (with over-the-top touches for humor) than anything else Hollywood has produced.

This has to be one of the most boring shows I have seen in a long time. No laughs, only cringes at the feeble attempts to be funny. Reminded me why I cancelled cable.
