Best US comedy in years!,
This review is from: The Middle - Season 1 [DVD]  (DVD)
After the end of 'Malcolm in the Middle' I was well and truly gutted and completely pessimistic as to the fact that there could in fact be another sitcom that takes it's place and lo-and-behold along comes 'The Middle', a show that is not only better than 'Malcolm in the Middle' but the best sitcom to come out of the US in years (maybe even decades). The first season introduces us to the 'Heck's', a middle-class family living in the middle of Indiana (hence the title) I wont go into the specifics of the characters here as many others have but each character has their own unique traits and personality and every actor that appears is always on top form.
I'm hoping this show will go on for many more years, and with the steady incline in the ratings it looks so. This is a fantastic show and I cannot recommend it more, shame it's not on Blu-ray but don't let that hinder your decision! I defy anyone of any age, race, religion, creed or gender to not be able to relate to and love this show!
Don't take my word for it, watch it! Five stars, 10/10!

It is an overlooked gem. Most people here don't hardly know of it, though it is in its third season. I think it is a great show in many ways. I don't think it is quite as good as Seinfeld or Arrested Development but it is very close.

True that, Arrested Development is my favorite of all-time and Seinfeld definitely the best "classic" of the 90's, love every episode of both!!
