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.
|1||HDClosed CaptioningVideoPilot||In the premiere episode, Frankie is struggling in her career as a car salesperson because she has failed to actually sell a car. Sue has auditioned for show choir and, to everyone's shock, makes the team, but fails to mention that she's part of the stage crew. To top things off, Brick wants Frankie to come to his class presentation dressed as a superhero. Just when Frankie thinks she's got a car sold and her kids under control, she does show up to Brick's class dressed as a superhero – but he's given her the wrong day – and the car she thought she had sold is stolen right in front of her. Work and home have taken over Frankie's life... to the point that she barely recognizes herself and has even taken to coloring her hair with a magic marker. Her youth has faded and the day-to-day grind has worn her down, but it's family and the struggles they face together that keep Frankie and the rest of the Hecks one big happy mess.||23:28||$2.99||View In iTunes|

I freaking LOVE this show.
This is my favorite show of all time.
THEY FINALLY GOT IT!
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.
I love this show
It's here, great. My favorite comedy show.
