Please forward to Charlie McDermott, Eden Sher and Atticus Shaffer as I was not able to add all their names. The petition would not publish with that many names.
The Middle is one of the best shows on ABC. It is the perfect depiction of the middle class in the US and all their dysfunctional intricacies. Even though tv is supposed to distract us from real life, this show is real. And it make us laugh. It makes us laugh at ourselves BECAUSE it describes so many of us. The quilt in the oven? Tell me you haven't stored something in your oven that you had no room for otherwise? Frankie taking off her bra at the end of the day? It's the first thing I do when I walk in the door! Axl being as lazy as he is? Tell me another teenage boy who isn't this lazy! (Especially when he comes up with the exclamation, "I'm suing milk!" because he broke his ankle) Brick with his quirky "tics"... hilarious yet so true. He's just trying to find his way in the world. And Sue... Sue Sue Heck... the young woman with the same first and middle name because mom and and dad messed up the birth certificate. Something that can absolutely happen in real life! She is an inspiration to all teenage girls. She marches to the beat of her own drum. She gives young women the power to be themselves no matter what.
The relationships between the characters on the show is so indicative of real life. How Mike is non-emotional, how Frankie tries to get Mike to show those emotions and how him and his dad communicate. You don't hear the words "I love you" between the two but you just KNOW they love each other and are always there for each other.
All in all, this show is the epitome of Middle America and we, the signers of this petition, think the actors should stick around until at least Brick graduates High School. How will we know what Brick decides to do with his life? (lol). I think the actors and actresses should reconsider. I'm not asking to keep it on forever. Just give it a few more years--until Brick graduations High School--if only to give us closure. Thank you!
