Oh heck, Eden Sher got a new do!
June 5th, 2018 under The Middle. [ Comments: none ]


For most of the time that Eden Sher was on The Middle, her hair went half way down her back. Then a few a seasons ago, she got a shoulder-length bob. Now that the show is over, she got a short hairdo that really frames her face.

There is only one problem, what will she do if the spinoff centered around her character gets picked up, which I hope it does. Will they let her keep this do or put a wig on it like they have done in the past for both Patricia Heaton and her? I hope they do not do that because I think this is a good style for her. What do you think?

The Middle says goodbye with an episode that fans will love!
May 22nd, 2018 under The Middle. [ Comments: 1 ]


You know how some shows’ series finales are so awful that they make you hate that you ever watched that show at all? Seinfeld and Lost, I am talking to you. Anyhoo, tonight at 8:30 on ABC, The Middle says goodbye with an episode that will not leave fans disappointed like those other shows.

The episode starts off with Axl (Charlie McDermott) telling his parents (Neil Flynn and Patricia Heaton) that he is taking the job in Denver. Like my dad when I told him I was I going to the University of Miami, Frankie cried and cried.

Altough by the next morning she was fine, and now it is time for Axl to tell his siblings the big news. Sue (Eden Sher) breaks down in hysterics (the same way I did when I found out that this was going to be the sitcom’s final season), and Brick (Atticus Shaffer) can’t wait to have the room to himself. Sue wants her moment and Axl wants to know why his younger brother does not care that he is leaving.

Axl thinks he has a month before he has to move; but in a very Axl way, he only has a few days until he starts his new life. Now, the Heck Family has to pull together to get him ready for his new job several states away. Before he leaves, he has some things he needs to do and he has some sweet moments with his siblings.

Finally, is it time for a Heck road trip to Denver. Any fan of the show can tell you, their family road trips are the worst. That is what makes this show so special. Along the way, there will be a lot of tender moments that are throwbacks to the past and even one setting up for the future. The biggest takeaway from this last car tide together is a lot of tears.

Tears because you are going to miss this show that most importantly was about a family. No matter how many lemons they were handed, Sue would give them the sugar they needed to make the sweetest lemonade. I am going to miss the Hecks because each week they made me smile. They are just an American family struggling to make it through their daily lives. No matter how bad things got, they will always have each other.

This was the perfect the cast because they worked so well together, but I must highlight one of them. Out of all of the actors who have played fathers throughout the decades, no one has played a better one than Neil Flynn. He is the quintessential dad. He gave the best pep talks, the biggest hugs and the most useful advice. While he is not as awesome as my dad, he comes in a pretty close second. But I am also going to miss Frankie as all of our moms rolled into one. Axl as the cool older brother. Sue as the lovable, but extremely annoying middle sister. Finally, there is Brick the quirky baby brother that every family has. They were just an average family, but to many of us, they were so much more.

I am going to miss them all, but this one-hour long sendoff left me very satisfied.

Patricia Heaton went all Frankie Heck for the wedding!
May 19th, 2018 under The Middle. [ Comments: none ]


You know how Patricia Heaton’s character Frankie Heck is all into the Royal family on The Middle? Turns out the actress is equally as obsessed with them because she woke up at 3a to watch Prince Harry and Meghan Markle get married. Not only that she dressed up for the occasion, fascinator and all.

Unlike on The Middle’s Mother’s Day episode, she did not watch it with her family. Instead, she viewed the nuptials with the people that wrote that scene for her. The creator’s of the show, DeAnn Heline and Eileen Heisler. The latter looks so thrilled to be up at that ungodly hour, just like me. Markle is so selfish. She is from California. She should have made it later because she knows we are 8 hours behind England. 4a is way too early to be excited about any wedding.

Is it too soon to ask for a revival of The Middle?
March 26th, 2018 under The Middle. [ Comments: none ]


On Friday night, The Middle wrapped production of their final episode; and I am wondering if it is too soon for ABC to ask the cast for a revival? I mean the show is not only still doing well in the ratings, it is also still killing it with its creativity. While other shows have been more miss than hit, this sitcom is still hitting it out of the park with humor and heart.

I am not ready to see it go, and looks like Patricia Heaton might not be ready for it either. She recorded a tear filled message to the fans of the show when she got home to tell us that not only are they close in front of the camera, they are all just as close when the cameras are not rolling. She is going to miss everyone who worked on the show, just like we are. Well, I think her more than us, but you know what I mean.

Are you like me and want to see this show go on like Celine Dion’s song or do you think it is time?

BTWF ads: Patricia Heaton and Jason Alexander for Pabst Beer
February 5th, 2018 under Before They Were Famous, Seinfeld, The Middle. [ Comments: none ]


Before Patricia Heaton was on Everybody Loves Raymond and Jason Alexander was on Seinfeld, two of the biggest sitcoms of the last 25 years; they starred in a Super Bowl commercial together for Pabst Been. Except for the hair, they look the same now as when she was 24 and he was a year younger in that 1983 ad.
