The Middle, Season 1HDClosed Captioning

Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.


Parents are the real heroes – but Frankie Heck (Patricia Heaton), must be some kind of superhero. A loving wife and mother of three, she's middle class in the middle of the country and is rapidly approaching middle age. Frankie and her husband, Mike (Neil Flynn), have lived in Orson, Indiana, their whole lives. A man of few words (every one a zinger), Mike is a manager at the town quarry and Frankie is the third-best used car salesman (out of the three) at the local dealership. She may not be a high-powered career woman, but when it comes to her family, she'll go to just about any length. And with kids like these, she had better. There's Axl (Charlie McDermott), her semi-nudist teenage son conceived while under the influence of Guns N' Roses; Sue (Eden Sher), the awkward teenage daughter who fails at everything … but with the utmost of gusto; and their 7-year-old son Brick (Atticus Shaffer), whose best friend is his backpack. Together, they're putting THE MIDDLE on the map.

Customer Reviews

I freaking LOVE this show.

This is my favorite show of all time.


The Middle is one of the greatest shows ever made, and it's finally here on iTunes. The comedy is clever and original, as well as the characters (Sue is perhaps the greatest character ever invented). Also, the actors are hilarious, and mod of the writers are good. The only bad episode in the bunch is The Bee.

Best season by far

A lot of Middle fans are probably going to disagree with me here, but I feel like Season 1 was the best season of the whole series. The writing was top-notch and very witty, not full of cliches like the newer episodes. The characters were all quirky and funny without being too over the top. Some episodes were instant classics. I don't like the extremely cliched show The Middle became after the first season, but I definitely love the first season!
