The Middle { Five Minute Friday & Seven Quick Takes }

I typically looooooove joining the FMF tribe of writers.
But it's been a long week and I'm kinda
"written out...." so when I saw Kate's prompt:
...... "MIDDLE,"  I immediately thought of
THIS go-to fun, escapism and definitely to-be-shared marvelous-ness!
I decided to totally cheat this week.
<< I hope cheating's allowed......  >> 

So, while I'm not writing this weeks's FMF,
I am sharing The. Best. Comedy. Show.
At least I'm sticking with Kate's prompt and trying to do it in five minutes! 😉
Here goes~

You've seen it, right? If not, you will.....
We love it here.
Meet The Hecks, a middle-class family living in
the middle of the US,
<hilariously> facing the  day-to-day of home, work, and raising three kids. 

When the series starts out in season 1, Frankie, ( mom )
  initially is an under-performing salesperson at a used-car dealer
 and later, becomes  a dental assistant
Her stoic husband Mike manages a local quarry and
oldest son Axl, is a popular but unmotivated and cynical teenager.
Daughter Sue is an enthusiastic young teen, chronically unsuccessful and socially awkward. Youngest son, Brick,  is super smart, but  an introverted compulsive reader.
His somewhat  odd behavioral traits prove super hilarious.

THIS scene is one of our all-time favorites and kinda sums up the
priceless comedy of the series.

And since I'm jumping in the #QT linky too,
here are seven great reasons to love The Middle:

The Middle: Season 1

The Middle: Season 2

The Middle: Season 3

The Middle: Season 4

The Middle: The Complete Fifth Season

The Middle: The Complete Sixth Season

The Middle: The Complete Seventh Season

And season 8 is currently on tv...
episodes can be streamed here though!
