The Middle is a delightfully written show that my entire family ages 10-56 watches with glee. The characters, the writing, the themes, the humor and the acting draw each of into the weekly episodes. We bought season one on dvd and caught up on last season. It is a show that we recommend to all we meet. As a mother of 8, I can identify with Frankie's struggles and goal. Of course the No Yelling episode struck a chord. I swear by 18 year son is Axil to a tee in his boxers and attitude. Watch it and fall in love with the Hecks!!!!
