I caught up with a good portion of the ninth and final season over the past few weeks, however, and while the show wasn’t at the level of the best seasons of its run (roughly the third through fifth, with honorable mentions to the second and sixth), it was still telling small-scale, thoughtful stories about what it means to live with not quite enough money in the United States.

"You're like my arm or something, like having to suddenly learn to write with your left hand," he said. Sue joined them, and she and Axl finally had the moment she'd been craving where they reminisced about the times they had growing up. That's when Sue explained to her brother why she was so happy being the middle child.

With that, it’s back to the present, as the Hecks drive by a cornfield that looks like the one in the opening credits. Brick, caught between bickering Axl and Sue, laments, “This is why I don’t want to sit in the middle.” He then whispers: “The middle.”

“It’s saying goodbye to an old pal. The nice green walls of the Heck house … I don’t know if it was always the same, but it was always messy. I guess that’s it. It’s nothing to cry about, right?” Flynn muses, before adding definitively: "We’re definitely going to cry.”

Axl, who recently graduated from college and has been on the slow road to actual adulthood this season, was a high school jock who, in the series’ early years, was often lazy, selfish and self-centered.

Fan Buzz

The episode Bitter Pill to Swallow reminded me of my sister at that age having the same difficulty taking medication in pill form just like Brick! They use the Lord's name in vain so many times during each episode it is hard to count. Attitudes, realistic, down to earth views on kids, some successes, some failures, all dealt with love and caring. This show is just a hilarious and realistic depiction of a modern day, type B, dysfunctional family. Sure Axl plays the guitar, but I wish he could sing once.
