Thread: The Middle

  1. #1

    The Middle

    We were spending a lot of time chatting about this in the thread for Modern Family, so I thought I would start its own thread. I'm finding this show to be gently funny; a hybrid of Roseanne, Malcom in the Middle and Arrested Development.

    I haven't watched it, but it looked totally like a biteoff of Malcolm in the Middle, right down to the name. Being neither of fan of Malcolm or Patricia Heaton, I passed. But if one of your impeccable taste makes a comparison to Arrested Development, I'll try to check it out.

    Truth be told, the way they're advertising it, everyone I've spoken to thought it was a shameless Malcolm knockoff, and no one's watched it.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    That's what I had thought originally, and it's really not like that. The daughter, Sue, has to be one of my favourite characters on television this season. She is so bravely clueless as she dives headlong into everything she tries... and subsequently fails on a colossal level. She's a bit like Jan Brady from the Brady Bunch movies of the 90s mixed with Alyson Hannigan in the American Pie films.

    It may strike you as a little bit Napoleon Dynamite at times... but not as quietly bizarre.

    As someone who has grown up in Indiana and currently living in Indianapolis, I can vouch that many of us here find "The Middle" and "Parks & Recreation" an insult. I mean c'mon - there's no nascar or heavily obese people in these shows... (sarcasm)

    [FONT=Courier New]I finally saw last week's episode. The whole bit with Olivia was HILARIOUS if only for the fact that my wife's name is Olivia. I deleted the episode without showing her though. I am pretty sure it would have ****ed her off since we spent last week fighting.[/FONT]

    [FONT=Courier New]Sue is is such a sweet girl and well played. You just can't help feeling bad for her. The post cards she sent home were hysterical.[/FONT]

    As a fellow Hoosier, The Middle doesn't offend me as much as Parks and Recreation.

    It's a funny show. I enjoy it. Brick is a little man in a child's suit. He's creepy. Creepy.

    I know!!!! "Mad"... "Still Mad"...

    I take no offence in this show and the way Midwesterners are portrayed. I'm from Ohio and they've really got a lot of the working class vibe perfect.
