Work. Kids. Bills. Comedy. It’s how the middle half lives. The Heck family returns for Season Two, bringing them 24 episodes of offbeat fun with one foot in reality and the other on a greasy wrapper from Burgerworld. Patricia Heaton and Neil Flynn star as Frankie and Mike Heck, frazzled parents trying to stretch their patience and paychecks around three brilliantly true-to-life kids: Axl, whose latest dream girl has tattoos, body piercings and pink hair; Sue, who’s thrilled to come in eighth (out of eight) in Square Dancing with the Stars; and Brick, the only kid who has his birthday party at the public library.
The Heck’s have their son Axl in football and daughter Sue in cross country. They try their best to attend their children’s events but often disagree on which event they want to attend.
Has this ever happened to you and your family, or have too many events and too little time? How did you resolve it?
Juggling a family these days is hard with so many different activities- even as young as my kids are we are starting to run into scheduling conflicts. Ours, of course, are nowhere near as funny as the ones on the middle but they happen, and happen often. This used to happen when I was a live in nanny for 5 kids- I remember telling them “hey, you’ll be early, you’ll be really early, you’ll be on time, you’ll be late, and you’ll be with me!” so many times- because its too hard to coordinate family schedules sometimes!
I haven’t seen much of this show- yet- but I have LOVED what I’ve seen and heard such great things about it from everyone that I can’t wait to see more!
