Middle-aged, middle class and living in the middle of America, Frankie and Mike Heck (Patricia Heaton and Neil Flynn) are back with their three middle-of-the-road kids - Axl, Sue and Brick. With a heck of a lot more fun, franticness and farce, Season 3 finds the Hecks not only dealing with the economic realities of the middle-class squeeze, but also the whole new challenge of teenage adolescence and deciding when to say no and when to let go. This season, Mike cuts the household vacation budget by taking the family camping, while hormonally challenged Axl gets advice from him on how to pick up chicks (go figure). Frankie is caught trying to cut in line to get Justin Bieber tickets, while Sue ends up tongue-tied learning to French kiss and Brick takes to quoting Shakespeare. Its 24 episodes of escapades and laughs, proving that life has never been so funny - in The Middle.
