For the first time in the history of the show, the entire library of episodes will be made available on an SVOD platform; although some episodes (but not all) can be streamed through Hulu. In addition to that, “The Middle” was available on Amazon’s platform, IMDb TV.
The show is about a middle-aged, middle-class couple who are trying to raise their children in the middle of Orson, Indiana. Frankie Heck (who is played by Patricia Heaton) is usually frazzled but always clever wife and mother of three. She uses her sense of humor to help her family get through small and larger problems.
Her husband is Mike Heck (who is played by Neil Flynn). He works as a manager at the local quarry. Between juggling shifts and picking up grub from fast food chains to be eaten together (sometimes separately) in front of the television. Their kids are popular and carefree Axl (who is played by Charlie McDermott), go-getter yet awkward Sue (who is played by Eden Sher), and eccentric Brick (who is played by Atticus Shaffer).
In “The Middle,” we see nine seasons of love, humor, and a bunch of trial-and-error parenting. Like any other middle-class family, the Heck’s struggles don’t stop but despite the crazy, they keep the love as a family.
The series first aired in 2009. Since then, the show received accolades such as the Humanitas Prize in 2016 and multiple Critics Choice Awards nominations.
