'The Middle' Spinoff's Title Includes A Special Nod To The Original Series That Sue Heck Fans Will Be Obsessed With - via Bustle

ABC won't make an official decision about Sue Sue in the City's future until later in the year. However, now that the show has a title and is starting to fill out its cast, it's impossible not to root for the eternal underdog, Sue Heck, to finally get her due. It's hard to say whether or not Chicago is ready for the sheer force of the combined enthusiasm of Sue and Brad, but TV fans could definitely use a heroic team like these two besties right now.

Ciarlelli played Sue’s boyfriend in the first season of The Middle. After they broke up, he remained on the show and in Season 7, he came out as gay and the two remained friends throughout the series which ended in May. In the finale of The Middle, Sue went off to college, but a flash forward saw her married to next door neighbor Sean (Beau Wirick) after an on-again-off-again relationship.

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.

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.
