Yeah, it's coming back.
Exactly this. In fact my wife and I were discussing just this point last night. We enjoy both The Middle and Modern Family, but for different reasons. The Middle is based squarely in real struggles families face. Sure, they are exaggerated for comedic effect, but nonetheless very relatable for real families. Modern Family, on the other hand is also very funny but it is a farce after the style of British humor. Two totally different styles of comedy.Not sad at all and in many cases on the mark for real life.
Sue? There's a Sue on this show?I haven't seen the finale yet, but I still love this show. And I have to say, it's one of the few sitcoms on TV that I feel safe letting my 11 year old daughter watch with us. I'm no prude and I love me some adult oriented humor, but it's nice to have a sitcom where the whole family can watch and is fun. I find a lot of what they do very realistic. I think they got the characters just right, especially the kids. The lazy teen boy who thinks he's hot stuff, the awkward early teen, who knows here "place" yet is still optimistic that things will always be better, and the geeky kid who just doesn't fit in with the other kids his age (yeah, the mumbling under his breath is a bit over the top, but still funny now that he doesn't do it more than once an episode). Sue is my favorite character, and I find myself rooting for her to achieve every week.
I've read this multiple times and still can't figure out how The Middle has become a "dark show".Originally, it played up a family that needed to struggle financially in a very realistic manner and has become a dark show with uncomfortable unrealistic situations.
In fact this may be the LEAST dark show on television.I've read this multiple times and still can't figure out how The Middle has become a "dark show".
