The Middle Season 1 2009
Family life in the American Midwest town of Orson, Indiana, is portrayed with hilarious and heartwarming brilliance in a sitcom starring Patricia Heaton and Neil Flynn as Frances and Mike Heck. As narrator, Frankie opens each episode with "Out here in the middle...," before delving into the latest trials and tribulations of her three kids: Axl, an academically-challenged, girl-obsessed high-school jock; Sue, an awkward-yet-endlessly optimistic adolescent; and the brilliant Brick, an elementary-school bookworm with more than a few quirks. Brick's under-his-breath repeating of words quickly becomes a signature show moment, while Mike (calmly, practically) and Frankie (frantically, emotionally) deal with the swirling issues in and out of their modest household.
Nominated for 1 Primetime Emmy. Another 11 wins & 34 nominations.
