‘The Middle’ Muddled Through Season-Premiere

I liked The Middle VERY MUCH last season.

I guess that in itself proved to be some kind of death knell for the show, which suffered through a WAY too long hour-long season premiere last Wednesday.

More accurately, I suffered through the usual 1/2 hour ABC program which couldn’t even make hay with a guest spot from the terrific Ray Romano.

Patricia Heaton

He looked as lost with the script as he was in the campground, where he ran into his “ex” (Patricia Heaton) from Everyone Loves Raymond.

Ugh! and no I am not telling you my last name …

It’s not even worth getting into the details, but suffice it to say the same three kids that were funny and fresh in the show’s first season already seemed as stale as my day old bagels.

That’s quite a feat, and not in a good way, since they were ALL really enjoyable, funny and clever last season.

I NEVER thought I’d find myself begging for Chris Kattan, who is good in this show after being so-so on SNL … where is CHRIS KATTAN!

Unless the second episode is miles better than I am going to pitch my TV tent elsewhere.

Or start using this as an expression … “That reminds me of The Middle … SO last season!”

Missing Sammy Davis Jr., Twinkies
I just noticed that the late, great Sammy Davis Jr's birthday, Dec. 8, came and went over the weekend. I miss the talented man, who broke down racial barriers through high great singing, dancing and even acting skills. Yes, even the latter, as judged by his appearance on the TV classic "All in

I'm a strange 'cat', I'll admit it. Just ab0ut completely broke all the time, yet I am as conservative as the day is long. And I always will be. In a similar way, I have always been among the working middle class, or poor, lol, but tend to see things in the owner's point of view in many res
